CCSDS Will McGary Tribute at I-30 Speedway Postponed
Tour Returns to Action on April 19-20 at Old No. 1 Speedway & Legit Speedway
Conway, Arkansas (04/11/19) – With heavy rain being forecasted, officials with the COMP Cams Super Dirt Series presented by Lucas Oil and I-30 Speedway have made the decision to postpone the third annual Will McGary Tribute, which was scheduled for this Saturday, April 13.
“As the week has gone along the rain chances have continued to increase for Friday night through early Sunday morning,” CCSDS Director, Chris Sullivan said. “It just made good sense to go ahead and postpone everything. We have some fans and racers coming from a long way to be here. We also have several dignitaries and representatives from the surrounding law office community planning to be in attendance. As a result, the third annual Will McGary Tribute will now be held on August 3 at I-30 Speedway.”
On this much anticipated night, racers and fans will join together to celebrate the life and prestige of fallen police officer, Will McGary.
McGary tragically lost his life in the line of duty on February 1, 2013. The hard-working young man was fatally struck by an impaired driver, while protecting and serving the citizens of Conway, Arkansas. He was only 26 years old.
While Will’s life may have been unfairly taken away far too soon on that fateful February day, his generosity and his spirit continue to live on. He was an organ donor. In fact, three recipients received his heart and organs. They continue to live healthy lives because of Will’s generosity.
The race will pay $5,000-to-win for the COMP Cams Super Dirt Series competitors. Billy Moyer and Jack Sullivan claimed wins in the first two editions.
The tour now turns its attention to April 19-20, which finds the series sanctioning a doubleheader. On Friday, April 19 a $2,500-to-win program will be held at Old No. 1 Speedway (Harrisburg, Arkansas). The traveling racers will head northwest on Saturday evening to pursue a $3,000 top prize at Legit Speedway (West Plains, Missouri).
The CCSDS tire rule Old No. 1 Speedway is Hoosier 1350 on all four corners with a Hoosier LM 40 option for the right rear. The tire rule for Legit Speedway is Hoosier LM 40 and WRS 55 on any four corners.
