Record Purse for 30th Annual COMP Cams Topless 100

Batavia, OHIO (August 16, 2022) – The nation’s elite dirt late model drivers will chase a $50,000 top prize this weekend at Batesville Motor Speedway in the 30th Annual COMP Cams Topless 100 – Presented by Nutrien Ag Solutions.

The crown jewel event – co-sanctioned by the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series and the COMP Cams Super Dirt Series Presented by Lucas Oil – offers a unique perspective of dirt late models without a roof. The topless aspect gives spectators an up-close look, as drivers wrestle their 800+ horsepower machines around the lightning-fast, 3/8-mile oval.

In 2021, a close and dramatic finish saw Hudson O’Neal barely edge ahead of Jonathan Davenport at the finish line. After taking the white flag Davenport went low in turn one for the lead briefly as O’Neal crossed over to regain the top spot heading down the back stretch. Davenport made one last-ditch effort sliding in front of O’Neal as the two headed to the checkers. O’Neal would cross over Davenport, beating him to the finish line by just 0.116 seconds. Brandon Overton, Tim McCreadie, and Jimmy Owens completed the Top-5 finishers.

This year’s action kicks off on Friday night with a complete program of Dirt Draft Hot Laps, Allstar Performance Time Trials, B-Mains, and a 30-lap, $5,000-to-win main event. Drivers will earn points in Friday’s preliminary events that will determine the lineups for Saturday night’s finale. The Top-16 in points will be locked into the A-Main, while everyone else will start in a B-Main.

On Friday, the pit gate will open at 3:00 PM CT, general admission gate at 4:30 PM CT, with a driver’s meeting slated for 7:00 PM CT. Hot Laps are set to begin at 7:30 PM CT.

Saturday’s festivities will kick off with Dirt Draft Hot Laps at 7:30 PM CT, followed by B-Mains for the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series/ COMP Cams Super Dirt Series Presented by Lucas Oil competitors. The 100-lap, $50,000-to-win, COMP Cams Topless 100 – Presented by Nutrien Ag Solutions will cap off the weekend. On Saturday, the pit gate will open at 4:00 PM CT, main gate at 4:30 PM CT. There will be a driver’s meeting at 7:30 PM CT.
