GREENWOOD, La. — The COMP Cams Super Dirt Series presented by Lucas Oil announced details for the inaugural Ronny Adams Memorial, which will open the season on March 6-7 at Boothill Speedway.

Friday’s program is highlighted by a complete $3,000-to-win/ $400-to-start program for the CCSDS competitors. Meanwhile, Saturday night’s event is capped with a complete $7,000-to-win/ $500-to-start event.

“This is a great way for our series to open the 2020 season. It’s an honor to be a part of an event that salutes the memory of such a well-respected and accomplished racer,” CCSDS CEO Chris Sullivan said. “Additionally, these are two great purses for the racers, and the fans get the opportunity to see two great shows.”

Veteran racer Ronny Adams died on Aug. 10, 2019 after a short battle with cancer. During his 51-year career the Texas native raced to 589 career wins, including 14 track championships at Boothill Speedway and nine Louisiana State Championships.

For Boothill Speedway officials, hosting the inaugural Ronny Adams Memorial early in their 48th season of racing is a special opportunity.

“Ronny [Adams] was the kind of guy that everyone liked and respected. He did a lot to support and help racing in our area, and to have his memorial race at our facility is something that we don’t take lightly,” Boothill Speedway promoter Brian Frazier said. “We originally talked about making this a two-day show for a single purse, but then decided it would be more racer and fan friendly to have two separate shows.”
The weekend opens with an Open Practice Session on Thursday, March 5. Factory Stocks and Limited Modifieds will join the program on Friday and Saturday. On Friday both divisions will contest heat races, while Saturday will see each class battling in $1,000-to-win/ $100-to-start finales. Additionally, Pro Mods will run a complete $400-to-win/$50-to-start program on Saturday.

On Friday and Saturday adult grandstand admission is $20 each night. Children (ages 5-and-under) are free in the grandstands. Pit passes are $20 on Thursday, and $35 on both Friday and Saturday.

On Thursday the gates open at 4 p.m. with practice beginning at 6 p.m. On Friday the gates open at 5 p.m. with the draw ending at 7:15 p.m., hot laps at 7:30 p.m. and racing action at 8 p.m. Saturday’s program includes gates opening at 4 p.m. with the draw ending at 6:15 p.m., hot laps at 6:30 p.m. and racing action at 7:00 p.m.
