- Kyle Beard picked up third win of the year in thrilling fashion on Friday night at Batesville Motor Speedway. Making a last-lap pass for the lead in his Gary Beard Trucking No. 86 Mann Motorsports / Capital Race Cars/ Clements Racing Engine Super Late Model, Beard raced to the $3,000 victory with the COMP Cams Super Dirt Series.

“I was just trying to save everything until the end,” said Beard, who found the outside line after seeing Terry Phillips there. “I wasn’t paying attention and almost waited too late. Thankfully I found it on the last lap and got the win. We’ve got a fast car right now, and I really appreciate my family, my crew, and my sponsors for everything they do for me."

On Thursday afternoon Kyle Beard visited I-30 Speedway (Little Rock, Ark.) for the COMP Cams Super Dirt Series (CCSDS)-sanctioned Rockabilly 45. Drawing 27 cars, Kyle secured his spot into the opening night feature with a runner-up finish in his heat race. Passing four cars in the 45-lap affair, Beard posted a fourth-place finish. He followed Timothy Culp, Brian Rickman, and Logan Martin across the line with Hunter Rasdon coming in fifth.

For the second stop of the weekend on Friday at Batesville Motor Speedway (Batesville, Ark.), Beard's runner-up finish in his heat positioned him fifth on the starting grid for the main event. Closing in on race-long leader Logan Martin in the waning laps, Kyle snuck ahead of Martin on the final circuit to secure his third win of the season and 19th-career CCSDS triumph. He finished ahead of Martin, B.J. Robinson, Morgan Bagley, and Hunter Rasdon to claim $3,000.

For the Larry Phillips Memorial on Sunday at Legit Speedway Park (West Plains, Mo.), Beard locked into a front-row starting spot for the $5,000-to-win A-Main with a heat race win. Unfortunately, Mother Nature made an appearance before the start of the feature and washed out the finale.

Kyle remains in fourth in the latest CCSDS point standings. Full results from these events are available at www.CompDirt.com.

"Don't mess up," Beard said he told himself in the final laps of the 40-lap affair. "I've been doing a good job at that lately. The car was pretty good, though. The lapped cars kinda made me nervous a little bit, but they gave me room, so we were good.

“We’ve had a fast and balanced car this year, but these races are tough to win, and there’s no shortage of great teams and cars out here. We’re thankful to win another win, and we thank everyone, who makes our program possible.”

After Mother Nature won the first two events over the Fourth of July weekend, Kyle Beard headed to Boothill Speedway (Greenwood, La.) on Saturday afternoon for the COMP Cams Super Dirt Series (CCSDS) sanctioned program.

Drawing a field of 21 entries, Kyle qualified second fastest overall in time trials behind Brian Rickman before picking up an eight-lap heat race victory. Outrunning the field in the 40-lap feature, Beard raced to his second win of the season, which came over B.J. Robinson, Rickman, Logan Martin, and Morgan Bagley. He pocketed $4,000 for his 18th-career series triumph.

Kyle is currently fourth in the latest CCSDS point standings. Full results from this event are available at www.CompDirt.com.
