COMP Cams Super Dirt Series Storms into Ark-La-Tex Speedway
by Ben Shelton
BEEBE, Ark. -- The COMP Cams Super Dirt Series (CCSDS) Super Late Models will resume their 2012 campaign this Saturday with its only appearance of the year at Ark-La-Tex Speedway (Vivian, Louisiana).
This weekend was slated to be a doubleheader with the action beginning on Friday night at USA Speedway (Sterlington, Louisiana), but officials with the facility notified the series earlier this week that the track is undergoing a management change, and that all races have been placed on hold. As a result a single event will be held this weekend as the tour rolls into the racy confines of Ark-La-Tex Speedway (Vivian, Louisiana).
Robert Baker currently leads the standings, but he is closely followed by Jon Mitchell, Brandon Smith, Johnny Virden, Kyle Beard, Larry Campbell, Clay Fisher, Jon Kirby, Curtis Cook, and Chandler Petty.
Not only does Baker lead the overall standings, but he also leads the current Kuntz & Company Rookie of the Year standings with Larry Campbell, Chandler Petty, Travis Ashley, and Kenneth Jackson in pursuit.
A strong contingent of regional drivers are expected as well including Chris Wall, BJ Robinson, Timothy Culp, Ray Moore, Morgan Bagley, Trey Beene, and more.
This Saturday, May 5th a $2,000-to-win/$400-to-start, 35 lap event will be held for the COMP Cams Super Dirt Series (CCSDS) at the 1/4 mile oval. In 2011 the series made its debut at the facility, and it was Haughton, Louisiana's Ray Moore, who stormed to the win, and he will be back to defend his victory. A full compliment of local divisions will also be on the card including Open Wheel Modifieds, Limited Modifieds, Factory Stocks, Beginners, and Pro Mods.
