Larry Phillips Memorial Set for Saturday Night at Legit Speedway
Locust Grove, Arkansas (07/30/21) – Kyle Beard only led one lap of Friday night’s COMP Cams Super Dirt Series (CCSDS) presented by Lucas Oil feature at Batesville Motor Speedway, but it was the most important one. The two-time series champion surged past race-long leader, Logan Martin on the final lap to score the $3,000 payday, which marked his third of the 2021 season.
“I was just trying to save everything until the end,” said Beard, who found the outside line after seeing Terry Phillips there. “I wasn’t paying attention and almost waited too late.”
Logan Martin was looking to make a clean sweep of the night. He set fast time in Mark Martin Automotive Qualifying, won his heat race, and brought the field to the green flag from the NewVisionCustomShirts.com Pole Position. Martin maintained the top spot for the first 29 circuits. However, on the final lap, the fifth-starting Kyle Beard used the high line to charge to the lead.
Beard led the final circuit to secure his third series win of the year and the 19th of his career.
Martin, B.J. Robinson, Morgan Bagley, and Hunter Rasdon rounded out the Top-5 finishers.
While Martin didn’t get the win, he did reclaim the points lead by 39 markers over Brian Rickman with his runner-up performance.
The weekend will draw to a close on Saturday night, July 31 with the 2021 edition of the Larry Phillips Memorial at Legit Speedway Park, which posts a $5,075 winner’s check.
