CONWAY, Ark. – The COMP Cams Super Dirt Series presented by Lucas Oil has moved the location of its season opening event.
Originally scheduled for Friday, March 22 at Rose Bowl Speedway in Winona, Texas, the lid lifter will now be held that night at Texarkana 67 Speedway in Texarkana, Ark.
“We were looking forward to our first trip to Rose Bowl Speedway, but we were notified by the track this week that the wet winter had kept the staff from being able to get everything ready for next Friday’s show,” COMP Cams Super Dirt Series CEO Chris Sullivan said. “Texarkana 67 Speedway was on our schedule for the following week, but when they heard about the opening, they stepped up to the plate to move their show up to March 22. I really appreciate the Green family for their assistance, and I’m really excited to be returning to 67 Speedway.”
The upcoming season marks the 12th year of operation for the COMP Cams Super Dirt Series. However, it marks the first year that the series will operate under the direction of brothers Chris and Jack Sullivan.
“We couldn’t be more excited to get the season underway,” Jack Sullivan said. “We’ve had a ton of support from both drivers and fans already. We’re definitely ready to hit the ground running.”
Sullivan is the reigning series champion. His championship last year was his fourth with the COMP Cams Super Dirt Series, but this year he moves into the series director’s roll with the tour.
“I’m sure it’s going to feel odd not being in the driver’s seat at the first few races, but my focus right now is on helping this series succeed and grow,” Sullivan said. “I’ll still be racing two dozen or so races this year when the CCSDS has off weekend, so that will feed my need for driving.”
