HARRISBURG, Ark. - July 16. A season of several first time winners on the Comp Cams Super Dirt Series tour continued on Saturday night at Northeast Arkansas Speedway as Brandon Smith topped the main event. Smith would endure several challenges for the top spot early in the event before eventually extending his advantage late in the going as he claimed the win over Dane Dacus, Jon Mitchell, Bill Frye, and Todd Hall.

Smith began the night by winning his heat race, which earned him the JFR Graphics Pole Qualifier Award with Jon Mitchell joining him on the front row. When the green flag dropped on the $1,500 to win, 35-lap feature it was Smith who shot to the lead with Jon Mitchell, Kyle Beard, Ian Samuals, and Todd Hall in pursuit.

The weekend’s events marked the first two events of the RiceTec Summer Series, which posts a $1,000 cash prize for the top point’s earner in the four event, mini-series as well as several contingency prizes for drivers, who finish in the top five. With the first two events completed, Smith currently leads the way in the standings. The final two events in the RiceTec Summer Series will be held on August 5th-6th at Malden Speedway (Malden, Missouri) and I-30 Speedway (Little Rock, Arkansas).

Gary Christian was the recipient of the Larry Shaw Race Cars Hard Charger Award after advancing from his 17th starting spot to a 10th place finish.

The Quarter Master Hard Luck Award went to Justin Asplin, who saw his transfer spot to the feature get away from him after mechanical issues struck late in the b-main.

With the weekend’s events completed, Kyle Beard continues to lead the points with Jon Mitchell just 11 points back in second. Johnny Virden, Brandon Smith, and Jon Kirby round out the current top five in the latest standings.
