What won the race: Fifth-starting Kyle Beard of Trumann, Ark., made a last-lap, outside pass of polesitter race-long leader Logan Martin on Friday at Batesville Motor Speedway for a $3,000 Comp Cams Super Dirt Series victory. Beard, a two-time series champ, notched his 19th career tour victory and third of the season.
Quotable: “I was just trying to save everything until the end,” said Beard, who found the outside line after seeing his father-in-law Terry Phillips there. “I wasn’t paying attention and almost waited too late."
