CCSDS: Wallace Returns to Victory Lane at I-30

by Ben Shelton

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - Aug. 6. Wendell Wallace claimed his third COMP Cams Super Dirt Series (CCSDS) victory on Saturday as he wired the field in the $2,000-to-win event at I-30 Speedway.

After rocketing from his fifth starting spot to claim the win in his heat race, Wendell Wallace was the JFR Graphics Pole Qualifier for the 35 lap event and was joined on the front row by Gary Christian.

As soon as the green flag dropped it was Wallace, who established control at the front of the pack with Christian, Curtis Cook, Jon Kirby, and Jon Mitchell in tow. It would quickly become evident that Wallace would have the car to beat in the feature as Kirby worked his way up to the second spot.

Wallace would go on to lead all 35 laps to claim the feature win over Kirby, Christian, Brandon Smith, and Billy Moyer, Jr., who was the recipient of the Larry Shaw Race Cars Hard Charger Award after advancing from his 12th starting spot to finish fifth.

With the win Wallace garnered his ninth career triumph to become the winningest driver in the history of the series.
