Logan Martin Wins Wild CCSDS Will McGary Memorial at I-30
Series Returns Action at Poplar Bluff and Legit Speedway on April 2-3
Little Rock, Arkansas (03/20/21) – Etching his name into the history books, Logan Martin bounced back from an early-race miscue to record to the $5,000 triumph in Saturday night’s fifth annual Will McGary Memorial with the COMP Cams Super Dirt Series presented by Lucas Oil event at I-30 Speedway.
“I knew when I slipped up there early in the race and lost the lead that I had to get up on the wheel. My family and I are having a lot of fun out here racing with the (CCSDS) series, and it’s nice to have these good paying races with a few hours of the house,” Martin said. “We have some great sponsors, who make this possible, and I want to thank them all for their support.”
For the second-straight night Louisiana’s B.J. Robinson brought the field to the green flag from the NewVisionCustomShirts.com pole position. Robinson led the first lap over fellow front-row starter Hunter Rasdon before Logan Martin made a daring third-to-first slider in turn one on the second circuit to take the top spot.
Meanwhile, Robinson and Rasdon briefly made contact as they took evasive action, causing Robinson to lose several spots.
Out front, the current Midwest Sheet Metal Marked Man, Martin set sail until a lap-14 caution bunched the field. On the ensuing restart the Missouri driver jumped the cushion in turn three, allowing Billy Moyer and Ashton Winger to slip past.
Moyer paced the next several circuits with Martin and Winger engaging in a spirited battle for the runner-up spot. Unfortunately, for Moyer he would lose a chance at becoming the first repeat winner of the Will McGary Memorial, when a mechanical failure sidelined him with just seven laps remaining.
Martin inherited the lead and fended off the advances of Winger to take his second win of the season and the sixth CCSDS victory of his career. Finishing in third was Kyle Beard, who started 17th. Morgan Bagley (started ninth) and B.J. Robinson rounded out the Top-5 finishers.
Oklahoma’s Pannell Chipping posted a $100 bonus to all heat race winners with B.J. Robinson, Scott Crigler, Hunter Rasdon, and Logan Martin claiming the added cash. Razor Edge Graphics ($100) and Barry and Jodi Lear from LDR Motorsports ($125) collectively posted a $225 bonus to the Hard Charger, and it was Kyle Beard who passed 14 cars to notch the accolade.
Additionally, Bo Cummings posted a $250 bonus for the 18th-place finisher, which was received by Scott Crigler.
The tour now takes a one-week break before returning to action on April 2-3 with a Show-Me State doubleheader at Poplar Bluff Motorsports Park (Poplar Bluff, Missouri) and Legit Speedway Park (West Plains, Missouri).
