Trumann, Arkansas (03/18/19) – Capitalizing on the momentum that he started his season with in Arizona back in January, Kyle Beard piloted his Gary Beard Trucking #86 Black Diamond Race Car/ Kuntz & Co. Racing Engine Super Late Model to his first win of the season on Saturday night.
Beard’s triumph was worth $3,000 and came with the Mississippi State Championship Challenge Series (MSCCS) Super Late Models at Jackson Motor Speedway.
“We’ve been really good at Jackson in the past. I knew we were bringing a really good car, and that if I did my job in the driver’s seat, we had a good shot at winning,” Beard said. “From the time that we unloaded, the car was awesome. I won’t lie that I got a little nervous when that caution came out with two to go because these Mississippi guys are tough to beat, and you hate to give them another chance to make a run. Luckily everything worked out, and we got the win.”
Saturday night saw Kyle Beard return to action at Jackson Motor Speedway (Jackson, Mississippi), where he entered the Mississippi State Championship Challenge Series (MSCCS) season opener. In qualifications, Beard registered the fastest time overall before finishing third in the dash.
Rolling off third for the main event, Kyle eventually slipped past polesitter Rick Rickman to grab the lead in the 40 lapper. Beard looked to be on his way to a comfortable win before a late-race caution set up a two-lap dash to the checkers. Kyle was able to keep the field at bay to pick up his first win of the season and a $3,000 payday. Rick Rickman, Brian Rickman, Dean Carpenter, and Brett White trailed him to the checkers.
