Locust Grove, Arkansas (10/01/20) – After being delayed twice by Mother Nature, it took more than two months to finally complete the COMP Cams Super Dirt Series presented by Lucas Oil program that began on July 31 at Batesville Motor Speedway. However, when the final checkered flag dropped on Thursday evening it was red-hot Missouri racer, Logan Martin, who bagged the win. (Photo by Checkered Chic Photography)
Neil Baggett and Timothy Culp brought the field to the green flag, but it was the current Midwest Sheet Metal Marked Man, Logan Martin, who advanced from the fourth-starting spot, to claim his third win in as many CCSDS races. With the victory he also extended his advantage atop the standings.
