Greenville, Mississippi (0710/20) – The COMP Cams Super Dirt Series (CCSDS) Super Late Models made its first trip of 2020 to Greenville Speedway, and it was local favorite Mike Palasini Jr. who picked up the $3,000 victory. (Millie Tanner photo)
Leland, Mississippi’s Palasini Jr. led the entire 30 laps from the outside-front-row starting spot and took the checkered flag a commanding 4.371 seconds in front of his nearest pursuer. New Vision Graphics Pole Sitter and Midwest Sheet Metal Rookie of the Year contender Drew Armstrong finished in second, while Midwest Sheet Metal Rookie of the Year point leader, Spencer Hughes rounded out the podium.
Defending series champion, Timothy Culp finished in fourth and current point leader, Logan Martin charged from the 18th-starting spot to finish fifth.
The CCSDS win was the second of the career for Palasini with his last coming in 2018 at Greenville Speedway. With the victor the series has now seen 12 winners in 14 events this season.
On Saturday evening, the action shifts northwest to Tracey Clay’s I-30 Speedway (Little Rock, Arkansas for the $5,000-to-win / $500-to-start, fourth annual Will McGary Memorial.
On this much anticipated night, racers and fans will join together for the fourth-straight year to celebrate the life and prestige of fallen police officer, Will McGary.
McGary tragically lost his life in the line of duty on February 1, 2013. The hard-working young man was fatally struck by an impaired driver, while protecting and serving the citizens of Conway, Arkansas. He was only 26 years old.
While Will’s life may have been unfairly taken away far too soon on that fateful February day, his generosity and his spirit continue to live on. He was an organ donor. In fact, three recipients received his heart and organs. They continue to live healthy lives because of Will’s generosity.
Those who knew McGary are quick to tell you just how special his giving nature truly was. With this in mind, it led to the formation of the Will McGary Foundation. The Foundation was created in honor of Will to continue his legacy by benefiting both the youth and law enforcement in Central Arkansas.
IMCA Modifieds, IMCA Stock Cars, and Mod-Lites will share the night’s spotlight. Racing veteran, Ken Schrader will also be on hand to sign autographs and race in the night’s IMCA Modified program.
Gates open at 4:00 p.m. with the draw closing at 6:30 p.m., hot laps at 7:00 p.m. and racing action at 7:30 p.m. Adult grandstand admission is $20 with children (ages 12-and-under) free compliments of Central Arkansas Pest Services.
