Cade Dillard Rides the High Line to CCSDS Texarkana Checkers
By Ben Shelton (Texarkana, AR) -- Cade Dillard used the highline to surge past Hunter Rasdon just before the feature’s halfway mark to pick up Friday night’s $5,000 COMP Cams Super Dirt Series (CCSDS) Super Late Models victory at Texarkana 67 Speedway.
“I kept looking at it (the outside groove in turns three and four) under caution and I thought there was a little bit left up there, just wasn’t sure and I didn’t want to kill what run I had going,” Dillard explained. “I was being way too conservative there early and I seen him (Rasdon) start driving away, so I was like well I better make something happen here, just had to get on the wheel and make it happen up there.”
NewVisionCustomShirts.com Pole Sitter, Cade Dillard and Hunter Rasdon brought the field to the green flag with Rasdon jumping to the lead.
Dillard pursued the Arkansas racer early in the race before racing to the top spot with a turn four pass just before the halfway mark. Once out front, Dillard cruised to his fourth-career victory and became the third different winner in three events this season.
He was followed across the finish line by Rasdon, Kyle Beard, Billy Moyer Jr., and Morgan Bagley.
Kylan Garner picked up the MD Bodies Hard Charger Award for advancing 14 positions to finish eighth.
