Tony Jackson Jr. Claims COMP Cams Super Dirt Series Opener
Texarkana, Arkansas (03/22/19) – The COMP Cams Super Dirt Series presented by Lucas Oil lifted the lid on the 2019 season on Saturday night at Texarkana 67 Speedway (Texarkana, Arkansas), where Lebanon, Missouri’s Tony Jackson Jr. survived a caution-plagued feature to score the $2,500 victory.
Jackson Jr. started his night by blazing to the Mark Martin Automotive Fast Time in qualifications. He then backed it up with a heat race win to lock into the pole position for the 40-lapper at the ¼-mile oval. Jackson Jr. was joined on the front row by fellow Show-Me State driver Jesse Stovall.
The tone of chaos for the feature would be set before one lap could be completed. The start was called off by the flagman, but not before several cars tangled including Patrik Daniel and Brian Rickman. Daniel would be done for the night, while Rickman was able to continue.
The next attempt to get the season-opening feature was a success with Jackson Jr. jumping to the lead. He set the pace for the next dozen laps before a series of cautions slowed the event.
While a multitude of Top-10 runners encountered issues, the one solid was Jackson Jr. who led the way. Late in the going, sixth-starting Billy Moyer worked past Stovall into the second spot. Timothy Culp looked to be on his way to a third-place finish before a late-race flat sent him pitside for a fresh tire.
Jackson Jr. went on to lead all 40 circuits to register his seventh career series win. Moyer, Stovall, Jon Mitchell and Morgan Bagley completed the Top-5 finishers.
On Saturday, March 23 the action shifts to Boothill Speedway (Greenwood, Louisiana) as the CCSDS racers set their sights on a $3,000-to-win/ $400-to-start program. Also on the card will be Limited Modifieds ($1,000-To-Win), Factory Stocks ($1,000-To-Win), Pro Mod ($500-To-Win) and Front Wheel Drive ($200-To-Win).
Gates open at 4:00 p.m. with racing action at 7:00 p.m. Adult grandstand admission is $20 with kids (ages 6-12) $5 and children (5 & under) free. Pit admission is $35. For more information on the facility, please visit www.BoothillDirt.com .
