Beebe, Ark. – July 16. After what has been a stressful season thus far, Jon Kirby was able to get things on
track as he topped his first COMP Cams Super Dirt Series (CCSDS) victory of the year on Friday at Beebe
With 27 Super Late Models on hand, Kirby earned the most points in heat race action after winning his heat
from the sixth starting spot. He was joined on the front row for the main event by Billy Moyer Jr.
Jeff Floyd and Kyle Beard (outside) at Beebe Speedway. Floyd tracked Kirby and
Moyer from third throughout the main event. (Woody Hampton)

As the 35 lap event went green it was Kirby who bolted to the lead with Moyer, Jeff Floyd, Brandon
Smith, and Dewaine Hottinger in tow. Passing would come at a premium in the main event, and Kirby ked the
caution-free event flag-to-flag to claim the win over Moyer Jr., Floyd, Smith, and Hottinger.
Geoff Aitken was the recipient of the Larry Shaw Race Cars Hard Charger Award after advancing from his 18th
starting spot to a 14th place finish.
The Quarter Master Hard Luck Award went to Hunter Rasdon.
