    Carload Night and The Comp Cams Super Dirt Late Models

Beebe, Arkansas (07/24/17) – Race fans literally by the carload will flood into Batesville Motor Speedway this Friday night as the COMP Cams Super Dirt Series (CCSDS) presented by Lucas Oil thunders into town for a $2,000-to-win event.

“Mooney Starr is always coming up with new and creative ways to promote his shows, and this Friday night will be no different,” CCSDS CEO Chris Ellis said. “It will be interesting and comical to see how many people can pile into a single car this Friday night at Batesville Motor Speedway. $30 admission for a 5 or 6 people or more for a Super Late Model show, you just can’t beat that.”

As the COMP Cams Super Dirt Series prepares for its twelfth event of 2017 this Friday evening, Mooney Starr is offering $30 grandstand admission per carload. Whether you have 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, or any other creative number of people in your vehicle when you pull into the grandstand area, you will be charged a flat fee admission of $30 for your carload.

Midwest Sheet Metal Marked Man, Jack Sullivan continues to run off with the chase for the 2017 CCSDS title. The two-time and defending CCSDS champ now holds a 91-point marker over his nearest competitor, which is Garrett Alberson. Kyle Beard, Zach McMillan, B.J. Robinson, Robert Baker, Gavin Landers, Tanner Kellick, Jon Mitchell, and Hunter Rasdon round out the Top 10 in the current standings.

Zack McMillan currently leads the Midwest Sheet Metal Rookie of the Year standings with Tanner Kellick four points back in second. Brandon Wilson rounds out the battle in third.

Race for hope 74

“RACE 4 HOPE ‘74”

NASCAR great, Mark Martin, raced for the first time ever in 1974 at a little dirt track called Independence County Speedway, better known now as the exciting, high-banked oval dirt track, Batesville Motor Speedway.

Forty-three years later, after his Hall of Fame career with NASCAR, Mark has returned to his hometown in Batesville, Arkansas, and with his wife, Arlene, have opened a new chapter in their lives with the intent to help children in need.

Hope for Arkansas, Inc. helps to improve the quality of life for children and families across the state of Arkansas with a strong emphasis in Batesville and Independence County. The goal of the foundation’s efforts is to make a positive difference in the lives of children and families through providing shelter, access to public transportation, education and career and soft skills training.
The foundation is in the beginning stages, so Mark is looking to get it well-known throughout the country. After speaking with Batesville Motor Speedway promoter, Mooney Starr, Mark realized that the IMCA Modified division is the largest group of race cars in the world. So why not have the largest paying race for the IMCA Modifieds and reach people all over the country and have a venue such as the “RACE 4 HOPE “74 to help spread the news about the Hope for Arkansas Foundation.

The “RACE 4 HOPE ’74” will be a five-day IMCA Modified event with a lucrative payback in the seventy-four lap feature event.

The Presenting Sponsor of The Race for Hope “74 will be Randy Sweet of Sweet Manufacturing. Sweet Manufacturing, located in Kalamazoo, MI, was established in 1978 and has played an active role in providing products to Mark Martin during his racing career.
