COMP Cams Super Dirt Series (CCSDS)
Neil Baggett Bags $8,000 in Gumbo Nationals Finale
GREENVILLE, Miss. (10/01/22) – Neil Baggett recorded the $8,000 COMP Cams Super Dirt Series (CCSDS) presented by Lucas Oil victory on Saturday night in the finale of the 16th annual Gumbo Nationals at Greenville (Miss.) Speedway.
Starting the feature in the third position, Baggett snared the lead from NewVisionCustomShirts.com Pole Sitter, Mike Palasini Jr. on the third circuit and never looked back on his way to the victory, which marked his first of the season with the tour and the fifth of his career in CCSDS action.
"Man it's unreal, we've had a terrible year, probably the worst year I've ever had in racing and I'm nobody, but we've had a terrible year and maybe this kinda redeems some of that," an emotional Baggett said. "I get teared-up you know, as a little boy sitting up in those stands I wanted to race one day and I didn't know if I'd be able to."
Logan Martin charged from the seventh-starting spot to finish second, while Palasini Jr., Brian Rickman, and B.J. Robinson rounded out the Top-5 finishers.
Rick Rickman earned the M&M Paint & Construction Hard Charger Award for advancing from the 17th-starting spot to a seventh-place finish.
With a strong weekend, Midwest Sheet Metal Marked Man Brian Rickman extended his advantage atop the series standings to 165 points with one event remaining.
The COMP Cams Super Dirt Series now turns their attention to their final event, which will be this Saturday, October 8 at Jackson Motor Speedway (Byram, Miss.). The All-American 60 posts a $6,000 top prize.
