CONWAY, Ark. – The COMP Cams Super Dirt Series will return to action this weekend as it invades Arkansas for a pair of events.

If a driver can sweep Friday’s event at Texarkana 67 Speedway and Saturday’s race at I-30 Speedway, they’ll be rewarded with $8,000 in first-place money.

“It was great to get back to action over the Memorial Day weekend, and now it will feels even more like things are slowly starting to get back to normal with a two-race weekend in our home state, where fans will be welcomed into the grandstands,” COMP Cams Super Dirt Series CEO Chris Sullivan said. “Both Texarkana 67 Speedway and I-30 Speedway are two action-packed bullrings with some of the best fans around.”

Jesse Stovall thunders into the weekend as the Midwest Sheet Metal Marked Man atop the series standings. On the heels of his $9,000 victory in the Back To Business 30 at Missouri’s Legit Speedway Park on Memorial Day weekend, Stovall holds a 10-marker advantage over defending series champion, Timothy Culp.

The talent-laden top-15 in the current standings include Logan Martin, Neil Baggett, Rick Rickman, Robert Baker, Spencer Hughes, B.J. Robinson, Morgan Bagley, Drew Armstrong, Kyle Beard, Brian Rickman, Scott Crigler, Jon Mitchell and Hunter Rasdon.

Mississippi’s Spencer Hughes leads early into the Midwest Sheet Metal Rookie of the Year battle over Drew Armstrong. The rookie crop is still taking form and the picture will be much clearer following this weekend’s action.

On Friday a $3,000-to-win/$400-to-start event is scheduled for Texarkana 67 Speedway. Also on the card will be Factory Stocks, Hobby Stocks, IMCA Southern SportMods & IMCA Modifieds. Gates open at 5 p.m. with racing action at 8 p.m.

On Saturday the 10th annual Rockabilly 45 is set to roll at Tracey Clay’s I-30 Speedway. Competitors will be looking to race their way into $5,000-to-win/$500-to-start finale. Gates open at 4 p.m. with hot laps at 7 p.m. and racing action at 7:30 p.m.

Fans attending both weekend events have been asked to practice social distancing from fellow race patrons outside of your group. Masks and hand sanitizer aren’t required but are recommended.
