Brian Rickman Wins CCSDS Instant Classic at Legit Speedway
CCSDS Returns to Action on April 16-17 with Arkansas Doubleheader
West Plains, Missouri (04/03/21) – A mere 0.029 seconds, that was the margin of victory for Mississippi’s Brian Rickman in Saturday night’s COMP Cams Super Dirt Series presented by Lucas Oil feature at Legit Speedway.
Rickman overcame a spirited battle with NewVisionCustomShirts.com Pole Sitter, Hunter Rasdon to score the $3,000 victory, which marked the fourth CCSDS victory of his career and his first since 2018.
For the second-straight night Rasdon was the Mark Martin Automotive Fast Qualifier, and he backed up his qualifying lap with a heat race win to earn the pole for the 40-lap finale.
Rasdon jumped to the lead at the outset of the feature at the 3/8-mile oval with fellow front-row-starter, Billy Moyer Jr., and third-starting Brian Rickman in tow.
Rasdon paced the first half of the race with Rickman moving into second on lap 14 as Moyer Jr. slipped to third.
Rickman began making up ground on the leader and overtook Rasdon for the lead on lap 29 only to see Rasdon inch back ahead on the 32nd circuit. The Jonesboro, Arkansas competitor maintained a narrow advantage at the front of the field over the next few laps before Rickman made a last-lap move to take both the lead and the win by less than three hundredths of a second.
Rasdon, Moyer Jr., Billy Moyer, and Kyle Beard (started 15th) rounded out the Top-5 finishers.
With the victory, Rickman became the fifth different winner in six series events this season. Only current Midwest Sheet Metal Marked Man, Logan Martin has more than one triumph.
The CCSDS will be idle next weekend before resuming action on April 16-17 with its debut trip to Central Arkansas Motor Speedway (Plumerville, Arkansas) and its first visit to Riverside International Speedway (West Memphis, Arkansas) since 2016.
