WEST PLAINS, Mo. – Jesse Stovall took home a $9,000 payday for his victory in Sunday’s COMP Cams Super Dirt Series event at Legit Speedway Park.

The race was originally scheduled to pay $4,000 to the winner, but Carl Moyer and Karl Chevrolet upped the stakes by adding $5,000 to the winner’s prize to push the victor’s take to $9,000.

Stovall ran second for much of the event before snaring the top spot from early leader and polesitter Logan Martin in traffic on lap 14. From there Stovall survived multiple challenges from Martin to take the win.

“After losing two races on the last lap in Louisiana to start the year with the COMP Cams Series, it’s redeeming to get to victory lane here tonight,” an emotional Stovall said in victory lane. “I want to say a special thanks to everyone who put this weekend together and especially the Karl Chevrolet people for adding $5,000 to the winner’s check, spur of the moment. This is a big win for my team and I.”

For the second-straight night, Payton Looney was on the podium, crossing the finish line in the third position. Kent Robinson and Timothy Culp rounded out the top-five finishers.

The finish:

Jesse Stovall, Logan Martin, Payton Looney, Kent Robinson, Timothy Culp, Billy Moyer, Tony Jackson Jr., Terry Phillips, Neil Baggett, Bobby Pierce, Drew Armstrong, Steve Casebolt, Mason Oberkramer, Robert Baker, Gordy Gundaker, Hunter Rasdon, Spencer Hughes, Colton Horner, Rick Rickman, Morgan Bagley, Joe Godsey, B.J. Robinson.
