Robert Baker No Rookie in COMP Cams Super Dirt Series Victory

by Ben Shelton
Nashville, Arkansas (04/14/12) – The COMP Cams Super Dirt Series (CCSDS) hosted a $2,000-to-win event at Diamond Park Speedway (Nashville, Arkansas) on Saturday night, and for the second time in the early part of the season a rookie candidate claimed the win as Robert Baker scored the victory.

Twenty-four cars took part in the event in front of a capacity crowd, and it was Minden, Louisiana's Jeff Chandler, who set on the pole for the main event with defending, series' champion, Brandon Smith, joining him on the front row.

Chandler broke to the lead at the drop of the green flag in the caution-plagued event, and would quickly build solid leads.  While he was on cruise control early, a great battle waged behind him for the second spot between Smith, RC Whitwell, and Larry Campbell.  Meanwhile, Robert Baker, who started 15th on the grid was the man on the move.  He was into the top ten just a few laps into the race, and by the time the caution flag flew on lap 30 he was into the top three. 

On the ensuing restart Baker would blast the cushion to take the lead from Chandler, who saw his tires seal over during the lengthy caution.  The Bryant, Arkansas' driver, Baker, drove away from the pack over the last five laps to claim the win, which came over Jeff Chandler, Brandon Smith, Kyle Beard, and Trey Beene

GRT Heat Race #1 was won by Brandon Smith with RC Whitwell winning NEA Super Gas/Killer Coatings Heat Race #2, while Jeff Chandler won Racing Head Service Heat Race #3.

The Boston's Sports Bar & Restaurants b-main was topped by Robert Baker.

The Larry Shaw Race Cars Hard Charger was Kyle Beard, who advanced fifteen spots to a 4th place finish after taking a provisional in the main event to start 19th.

The scariest moment of the event came on lap 28 of the feature, when Clay Fisher received contact that sent hit flying off the backstretch through the corner of a building, and into the base of the pit grandstands.  Clay nor any spectators were injured, but his car was totaled.  For the bad luck he received the Quarter Master Hard Luck award.
