Harrisburg, Arkansas (08/02/19) – Two-time COMP Cams Super Dirt Series (CCSDS) presented by Lucas Oil champion, Kyle Beard overtook Jason Papich for the lead with eight laps remaining to win Saturday night at Old No. 1 Speedway.
The victory was the 15th of his career with the series and paid $2,500.
Snagging the lead from the New Vision Graphics Pole Award Winner, Dane Dacus on the opening circuit, Papich led the first 22 circles before multi-time Old No. 1 Speedway Track Champion, Kyle Beard charged to the lead the final eight laps for his first-series win of 2019.
Dane Dacus, Logan Martin, and Mason Oberkramer completed the Top-5 finishers.
The 30-lap feature was slowed by a single caution, which fell on lap 2 for slowing Midwest Sheet Metal Rookie of the Year leader, Scott Crigler.
Weekend action continues on Saturday night with the third annual Will McGary Tribute at I-30 Speedway (Little Rock, Arkansas) as a $5,000-to-win/ $500-to-start, racing event headlines the night.
On this much anticipated night, racers and fans will join together 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.
ASCS Elite Non-Wing Sprint Cars, IMCA Modifieds, Bumper-To-Bumper Super Stocks and Powder Puff will share the night’s spotlight.
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 $15 with children (ages 6-12) $1 and kids (ages 5-and-under) free. The first 100 children will receive free admission, courtesy of the COMP Cams Super Dirt Series.
