CONWAY, Ark. – This Thursday through Saturday the COMP Cams Super Dirt Series squares off against the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series at Johnny Stokes’ Magnolia Motor Speedway in the annual General Tire Clash at The Mag presented by Big River Steel.
The weekend includes three big shows over the course of three nights.
“Our drivers are excited, our fans are excited, and our staff is excited,” COMP Cams Super Dirt Series CEO Chris Sullivan noted. “This was already a big weekend on our schedule, but with this being the biggest race so far in the area this year, it’s an even bigger weekend. Our teams are obviously facing a tough challenge going up against the Lucas Oil Series regulars, but I have no doubt that our drivers will hold their own. I’m looking forward to a great weekend of racing.”
