Garrett Alberson wins Will McGary Memorial at I-30
Garrett Alberson continued his fast start to the 2022 season over the weekend with another $5,000 victory in the Ken & Beth Roberts-owned No. 58 Nutrien Ag Solutions / Roemer Machine & Welding / Mesilla Valley Transportation / Black Diamond Chassis / Clements Racing Engine Super Late Model.
His latest trip to the Winner’s Circle came on Saturday night at I-30 Speedway, where he led the final 38 laps of the sixth annual Will McGary Memorial to score the COMP Cams Super Dirt Series victory. He added a runner-up finish the night before at Ark-La-Tex Speedway.
“We had planned to race in Illinois this weekend with the World of Outlaws, but weather scrapped that, so we decided to head south to race with the COMP Cams (Super Dirt) Series, and it proved to be a great weekend,” Alberson said. “Friday night we had a car capable of winning but just couldn’t find a way past Kyle (Beard), but on Saturday night we got to the lead early and never looked back. We’ll take what we learned and this momentum and get ready for Lucas Oil (Late Model Dirt Series) action this weekend.
“Thanks so much to everyone, who supports this race team!”
With Mother Nature wiping out the Illini 100 weekend at Farmer City Raceway (Farmer City, Ill.), Robert Motorsports trekked south to Ark-La-Tex Speedway (Vivian, La.) to compete with the COMP Cams Super Dirt Series (CCSDS). In a field of 25 cars, Alberson secured his spot into the opening night feature with a heat race triumph. Moving forward one spot in the 30-lap affair, Garrett notched a second-place finish, which came behind Kyle Beard.
The following night at I-30 Speedway (Little Rock, Ark.) for the sixth annual Will McGary Memorial, Alberson topped the 29-car field in time trials before placing first in his heat. Overtaking Timothy Culp for the lead following a lap-three restart in the feature, Garrett raced to his second win of the season and third career CCSDS triumph. He claimed a $5,000 payday ahead of Mason Oberkramer, Logan Martin, Brian Rickman, and Tyler Stevens.
