Jamie Dacus Gets First Career PRO Win at
Shelton, series P.R.
WEST MEMPHIS, Ark. – Nov. 14. Former Track Champion, Jamie Dacus, is no stranger to
victory lane at Riverside International Speedway, and on Sunday evening he claimed the $2,000 win in an event that
was co-sanctioned by the P.R.O. Dirt Car Super Late Model Series and the NeSmith Super Dirt Car Super Late Model
Twenty-seven Super Late Models entered the $2,000 to win event at the 61- year-old facility.
Current series points leader, David Breazeale, set fast time around the oval to earn the Southern Belle Pole
Award for the 40-lap feature, joined on the front row by Dacus.
Early in the feature event, Breazeale would maintain the lead with Dacus and third starting Kyle
Beard in tow. The events early laps would be marred by several cautions. During a lap 10 caution, Beard, who had
advanced to the second spot, retired with mechanical issues.
The race finally enjoyed a long green flag run, and it appeared that Breazeale was on his way to
another series’ triumph before disaster struck on lap 21 as Breazeale and a lap car made contact. The contact
resulted in a hole in Breazeale’s radiator, bringing his night to a disappointing end.
With Breazeale pitside, Dacus inherited the lead with Rick Rickman and Dean Carpenter in
pursuit. As the trio battled at the front, Brian Rickman was making a charge through the pack after having to go to
the tail for being credited with a caution. He was up to the fourth position by lap 29 when bad luck struck for him
again, as he made contact with a car trying to exit the track. The contact resulted in heavy damage for Rickman,
but he was uninjured.
The next restart was the final of the night as Jamie Dacus powered to his first series’ win over
Rick Rickman, Dean Carpenter, Mark Stephens, and Jerry Buck.
The P.R.O. Dirt Car Series will return to action on November 26th-27th at Magnolia Motor
Speedway (Columbus, Mississippi) with a pair of events, which will be held during the 9th Annual Possum Town Grand
