CONWAY, Ark. – After losing multiple dates over the past few months due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the COMP Cams Super Dirt Series has announced a new event.

On May 22-23 the tour is set to resume its campaign with a weekend of racing at Gary Stolba’s Legit Speedway Park in West Plains, Mo.

On Friday night, May 22 the West Plains Resaw Back To Business 30 is highlighted by a complete $4,000-to-win/$400-to-start, COMP Cams Super Dirt Series program. The following day, the Missouri Hardwoods Back To The Future 50 lights up the Missouri sky on Saturday, May 23 with a complete $10,000-to-win/$600-to-start affair.

“I can’t begin to describe how excited we are to finally have a definitive date of when we’ll be returning to racing. Even more it’s great to be planning on an event, where we know that fans and racers alike will be able to attend,” COMP Cams Super Dirt Series CEO Chris Sullivan shared. “We can’t thank Gary Stolba enough for this opportunity.

“With this being our first race back, it only seemed appropriate to name the opening night the West Plains Resaw Back To Business 30. Additionally, as the original home of the Show Me 100, there’s no shortage of Memorial Day weekend history at that facility. With the major events that the Stolba family wants to bring to the track in future years, we decided to salute both eras and call Saturday night the Missouri Hardwoods Back To The Future 50.”

For Legit Speedway Park promoter and owner Gary Stolba, he found himself with the opportunity to bring super late models back to Legit Speedway Park (formerly West Plains Motor Speedway) for the second-straight year over the Memorial Day weekend holiday.

“Last year, the tornado damage at Lucas Oil Speedway forced officials to postpone the Show Me 100, and this year the pandemic forced them to postpone it again,” Stolba recollected. “Last year I put a couple of small shows together at the last minute to give Super Late Models the chance to race here again. Honestly, it was my most successful weekend to date with the track, so when the opportunity presented itself again, I decided to up the ante with more money and the COMP Cams Super Dirt Series sanction.”
