Dillard Dashes to $7,000 Victory in CCSDS Ronny Adams Memorial
Greenwood, LA — March 13, 2021
Inheriting the lead when frontrunners Timothy Culp and Billy Moyer made contact on the 19th circuit, home state driver Cade Dillard charged to the COMP Cams Super Dirt Series presented by Lucas Oil $7,000 victory on Saturday night in the second annual Ronny Adams Memorial at Louisiana’s Boothill Speedway.
“I knew I had a really good car at the beginning so I was trying to ride around the bottom as long as I could, but I knew the top was probably better but it’s easy to mess up (running) up there,” Dillard said. “Once that happened (the Culp-Moyer incident) I knew it was probably time to go so we moved up. We’ve had a lot of bad luck lately, so it’s pretty rewarding to do this in front of my family and just be close to home in general.”
Timothy Culp grabbed the lead at the drop of the green flag from the NewVisionCustomShirts.com pole position in the 40-lap feature. During the early stages of the finale, Culp had to fend away advances from Cade Dillard and Billy Moyer Jr.
By lap 12 Billy Moyer moved up to the second position and began challenging Culp for the top spot. Disaster struck for Culp and Moyer as the duo made contact as they completed lap 18. The result was both drivers spun to a standstill at the top of turn one.
Culp changed a flat right-rear tire and briefly rejoined the back of the pack before calling it a night. Moyer was done for the night as well.
Dillard inherited the top spot and went on to lead the remainder of the finale to claim the $7,000 top prize. The CCSDS victory was the third of the Louisiana racer’s career.
Ashton Winger, Brian Rickman, Earl Pearson Jr. (started 11th) and Logan Martin completed the Top-5 finishers.
