by Ben Shelton, series
MONTICELLO, Arkansas – May 14. A season of firsts continued for the COMP Cams Super Dirt Series (CCSDS) on
Saturday at Drew County Speedway as the tour saw its fourth first time winner in its first seven events of the
season, with Curtis Cook claiming the $2,000 payday.
With 24 CCSDS Super Late Models on hand, it was Kuntz & Co. Rookie of the Year candidate Cook who sat on the
JFR Graphics Pole for the 35-lap, $2,000 to win event at the 3/8 mile oval with fellow Late Model rookie, B.J.
Robinson starting to his outside.
Cook bolted to the lead and paced the first 25 laps before difficulties in lapped traffic saw another rookie,
Timothy Culp, drive by for the top spot. Culp led the field for the next five circuits before his own difficulties
in lapped traffic saw Cook drive back past him for the top spot. Curtis never looked back as he went on to lead the
last five laps to claim the win over Culp, Jon Mitchell, Trey Beene, and Kyle Beard.
Allen Murray was the recipient of the Larry Shaw Race Cars Hard Charger Award after advancing from his 17th
starting spot to a place finish.
The Quarter Master Hard Luck Award went to Clay Fisher.
