HARRISBURG, Ark. — Leading all but the opening lap, local favorite Kyle Beard powered his familiar Gary Beard Trucking No. 86 Capital Race Car to the $5,000 victory in Friday night’s COMP Cams Super Dirt Series presented by Lucas Oil event at Old No. 1 Speedway.
The Trumann, Ark., racer, who cut his teeth at the quarter-mile oval, overtook NewVisionCustomShirts.com polesitter B.J. Robinson on the second lap and never looked back en route to a 1.643-second victory over Hunter Rasdon, Scott Crigler, Billy Moyer and Brian Rickman.
The 17th-career CCSDS win for Beard came in the reincarnated edition of the facilities’ signature Cow Patty event.
“My team gave me a great car tonight, and I just had to be smart in traffic. There during the middle stages, my signal guy was showing me that second place [Hunter Rasdon] was closing in on me, so I started pushing things a bit harder the second half of the race, and we got the win,” Beard shared in victory lane. “This track means a lot to me, and it’s always special to get to race with so many friends and family here.”
