WAYCROSS, GA — The 23rd Annual COMP Cams Topless 100 – Presented by Crop Production Services is slated for Thursday-Saturday, August 13th-15th at Batesville Motor Speedway in Batesville, AR. The $40,000-to-win event is co-sanctioned by the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series and the COMP Cams Super Dirt Series – Presented by Lucas Oil.
The event’s unique format, featuring dirt late models without a roof, gives spectators an up close look as drivers wrestle their 800+ horsepower machines around the lightning-fast, 3/8-mile oval. In 2014, Jimmy Owens captured his second-career Topless 100. Dale McDowell finished second, followed by Jonathan Davenport, Scott Bloomquist, and Don O’Neal rounding out the top five.
The renowned Lucas Oil Productions Studios will be on hand to tape all the action with multiple camera angles, driver interviews, on-board cameras, and various technical segments. The event will air on MAVTV Motorsports Network and NBC Sports Network at a later date, in 2015.
