Just two days remain until the COMP Cams Super Dirt Series (CCSDS) Super Late Models kick off the inaugural Four-For-Four Firecracker Nationals. The four-race swing spans July 1-4 and visits four tracks in three states. Each feature pays $4,000 to win, but the big money doesn’t stop there.

The Mark Martin Automotive Challenge posts a $10,000 bonus for a driver, who can win all four events. If a single driver can win three of the races, they’ll receive a $5,000 bonus.

“This is obviously a huge deal for our series. We’ve got four great tracks running four-consecutive nights with $4,000-to-win/ $400-to-start purses, and then you throw in the bonus money from Mark Martin Automotive Challenge, and this weekend gets real big, real quick,” CCSDS CEO Chris Sullivan said. “Our series and our drivers are excited, and we just want to say a special ‘thank you’ to the tracks and the sponsors who are making it all possible.”

Heading into the weekend, there’s a tie for the Midwest Sheet Metal Marked Man point’s lead between defending CCSDS Champion, Timothy Culp, and Jesse Stovall. Behind them, Logan Martin, Spencer Hughes, Rick Rickman, B.J. Robinson, Neil Baggett, Kyle Beard, Morgan Bagley, Brian Rickman, Hunter Rasdon, Drew Armstrong, Robert Baker, Joe Godsey and Jon Mitchell round out the Top 15 in the current standings.

Spencer Hughes has jumped out to the early lead in the Midwest Sheet Metal Rookie of the Year standings with Drew Armstrong and Joe Godsey in pursuit.

The four-race swing of $4,000-to-win/ $400-to-start CCSDS events opens on Wednesday, July 1 with the Hammer Hill Twin Bill at Tracey Clay’s I-30 Speedway (Little Rock, Arkansas). A $2,000-to-win / $300-to-start Sprint Car special will also join the night’s festivities. It’s worth noting that the Sprint Car winner’s take could surpass $5,000 due to added lap money from supporters of the winged warriors.
