Jon Mitchell Prowls to COMP Cams Super Dirt Series Win at Diamond Park

Nashville, Arkansas (08/01/14) – Known as “The Cat Man” Jon Mitchell prowled on the competition all night long at Diamond Park Speedway (Nashville, Arkansas) in the $2,000-to-win, COMP Cams Super Dirt Series (CCSDS) presented by Lucas Oil event at the clay oval.

Mitchell started his night by charging from the third starting spot in his heat race to score the win in his heat race.  Along the way he accumulated enough points to earn the New Vision Graphics Pole Award for the 30 lap feature in his Team 5 Enterprise #5 Mastersbilt Super Late Model. 

Brandon Smith joined Mitchell on the front row for the finale, and it was 2012 series champion, Jon Mitchell, who won the drag race to turn one on the first lap to claim the lead.  It was an advantage that Mitchell would never relinquish as he wired the field for the duration of the event to claim the fifth CCSDS triumph of his career.  Jack Sullivan advanced to a runner-up finish, while series point leader, Kyle Beard, Smith, and Austin Rettig rounded out the top five finishers.

Jack Sullivan won GRT Race Cars Heat Race #1 with Jon Mitchell winning Allen Manufacturing Heat Race #2.  Brandon Smith raced to victory in ROCKHARD Powder Coating Heat Race #3.

Allen Murray topped the Boston's Sports Bar & Restaurant b-main.
