COMP Cams Super Dirt Series Set To Make History This Weekend

The COMP Cams Super Dirt Series presented by Lucas Oil is set to make history this week. The tour will sanction its richest, stand-alone event in its 13-year history. The record-setting feat will be made as the tour embarks on the eighth annual Bad Boy 98 at Mooney Starr’s Batesville Motor Speedway (Locust Grove, Arkansas).

“This is the richest, standalone weekend in the history of the COMP Cams Super Dirt Series, and we couldn’t be more excited,” CCSDS CEO Chris Sullivan commented. “There’s a lot of buzz among racers and fans. This is a must-see event, and it’s a really proud moment for our series. There’s some major money on the line, and best of all, the weekend features two complete shows.”

The eighth annual Bad Boy 98 is headlined by a $5,000-to-win/ $500-to-start program on Friday night. The ante ramps up on Saturday evening, when the purse is increased to $15,000 to win and $1,000-to-start.

Bad Boy Motorsports CEO, Bill Hurst is pleased to see a new, two-race format for the Bad Boy 98.

“We are really excited with the new format of the two shows with a 30- lap feature on Friday night and a 68-lap feature on Saturday night to total 98 laps,” Hurst commented.

Former champions of the Bad Boy 98 include Jimmy Owens, Tim McCreadie, John Blankenship and Scott Bloomquist.

With three events completed in 2019, Billy Moyer leads the way in the CCSDS standings. However, since Moyer isn’t a paid series member, second-place runner Tony Jackson Jr. is currently the Midwest Sheet Metal Marked Man point leader for the series entering this weekend’s events. Kyle Beard, B.J. Robinson, Hunter Rasdon, Morgan Bagley, Scott Crigler, Gavin Landers, Timothy Culp, Brian Rickman, Charlie Cole, David Payne and Sawyer Crigler, Robert Baker, Chad Mallett, and Jon Mitchell round out the latest standings.
