Harrisburg, Arkansas (06/08/13) – Less than 24 hours after registering his first career victory with the COMP Cams Super Dirt Series (CCSDS) Tony Jackson Jr. from Lebanon, Missouri doubled his pleasure on Saturday night by scoring the $3,000 triumph in the 3rd Annual Rockabilly 45.
Via their top four finishes in Friday night’s preliminary feature Tony Jackson Jr., Kyle Beard, Ross Camponovo, and Dane Dacus locked into the Allen Manufacturing Dash, which posted a $600 total purse. With the finish from the dash determining the line up for the front two rows for the feature Jackson Jr. claimed the win with Beard, Camponovo, and Dacus rounding out the finish.
In the feature Tony Jackson Jr. jumped to the lead at the drop of the green flag, and after enduring three caution flags in the opening laps went on to lead every circuit to claim the victory over Clay Fisher, Dane Dacus, Kyle Beard, and Tanner English.
Jackson Jr. received a $3,000 check and a guitar trophy for his efforts in the 45 lap finale.
The Larry Shaw Race Cars Hard Charger bonus was claimed by, Tanner English, who advanced seven positions to a fifth place finish, while Ashley Newman was awarded the Quarter Master Hard Luck Award after contact in the event’s opening laps spun him from contention.
Heat race action saw Clay Fisher win GRT Race Cars Heat Race #1 with Wendell Wallace winning the NEA Super Gas Heat Race #2. Allen Manufacturing Heat Race #3 was topped by Brad Looney, while Brandon Smith won Racing Head Service Heat Race #4.
The twin Boston’s Sports Bar & Restaurants B-Mains were topped by Chandler Petty and Jeff Floyd.
