B.J. Robinson won his first Comp Cams Super Dirt Series event.
What won the race: Sixth-starting B.J. Robinson of Bossier City, La., charged to the front after early front runners Jack Sullivan and Brian Rickman had trouble and went on to capture a $2,500 Comp Camps Super Dirt Series victory at Magnolia Motor Speedway. Robinson finished 5.369 seconds ahead of runner up Gavin Landers.
Quotable: “We’ve been so close to getting one of these (Comp Cam Series wins), and just kept coming up short, but tonight all of the cards fell our way,” said Robinson. “Even before (Jack) Sullivan and (Rick) Rickman had their mechanical troubles our car was starting to come around and I felt like we had a shot to win. The track was really challenging tonight, but I’m proud to finally win one here. I just wish that Mr. David Peterson could have been here tonight for this win because he’s done so much to support my racing career.”
Key notes: Robinson scored his first Comp Cams victory. ... Polesitter Chandler Petty led the first 10 laps before giving way to Brian Rickman, who led until lap 16. … After taking over on a restart, Jack Sullivan paced the field until retiring with mechanical trouble on lap 30. … Robinson inherited the lead from Sullivan and held off a charging Gavin Landers. … There have been eight winners in the first 10 series events. … Series winner Robert Baker’s night ended early after a vicious end-over-end flip in qualifying. He was uninjured.
On the move: Gavin Landers of Batesville, Ark., rallied from ninth to finish second.
Winner's sponsors: Robinson's David Peterson Motorsports Black Diamond Chassis has a Clements Racing Engine and is sponsored by Cooper's Penske Shocks, Stealth Industry, TWM Racing Products and Xtreme Graphics.
