Timothy Culp Surges To CCSDS Ronny Adams Memorial Finale
Greenwood, LA — March 7, 2020
Louisiana native, Timothy Culp made the late-race charge to the $7,000 victory on Saturday night in the finale of the inaugural Ronny Adams Memorial at Boothill Speedway (Greenwood, Louisiana). The win marked the eighth COMP Cams Super Dirt Series presented by Lucas Oil triumph of his career.
“I grew up not very far from here [Boothill Speedway], so this place is kind of like home,” Culp said in Victory Lane. “Ronny [Adams] was a hard racer, and he was kind of like Dale Earnhardt. He and I had our run-ins on the track and then we’d talk on Monday morning and put the differences behind us. Ronny was a heck of a racer, so it means a lot to win this race in his memory.”
The defending CCSDS Champion, Culp overtook race-long leader and New Vision Graphics Pole Sitter, Jesse Stovall with just two laps remaining in the 50 lapper to take the lead and ultimately the win. Stovall’s bid for the victory came up just short for the second night in a row. While he failed to reach Victory Lane, the Missouri racer did end the weekend with the series point’s lead and the Midwest Sheet Metal Marked Man orange spoiler after recording a pair of runner-up finishes.
Sixteenth-starting Earl Pearson Jr. advanced 13 spots to finish third. He claimed the hard charger award for his efforts. Logan Martin and B.J. Robinson rounded out the Top-5 finishers.
Early-race challengers, Tyler Erb and Billy Moyer Jr. both fell by the wayside with mechanical issues.
C. Wright Machine, P&W Sales Inc., RKT Operating, Dirt Defender, Day Motorsports and the Jones family were among entities donating additional money and prizes to the night’s purse in honor of the memory of Ronny Adams.
