GREENWOOD, La. – Entering Saturday night’s COMP Cams Super Dirt Series finale of of the inaugural Four-For-Four Firecracker Nationals, it had been eight years since Terry Phillips had won with the tour.
However, the Missouri racer ended that skid with a $4,000 triumph in Saturday’s 40-lap finale.
Phillips, who started second, overcame a battle with polesitter Billy Moyer to score his third series win.
“The car was pretty good,” Phillips said. “I’ve been hanging out with (Ronnie) Stuckey over here (at Black Diamond) and they’ve got us dialed in, so hat’s off to them. It’s pretty cool when you’ve got your hero (Billy Moyer) beside you on a start. I’m an old guy, but he’s still me hero. He’s older than me. I told somebody it was a total Geritol front row going on, but I think we’ve still got it.”
Phillips victory increased the count to 11 different winners in the first 13 series events this year. Only Timothy Culp and Jimmy Owens have made multiple trips to victory lane this season.
Moyer, Jon Mitchell, Spencer Hughes and Hunter Rasdon completed the top-five.
