Inside Line Promotions - NORTH PORT, Fla. (Sept. 29, 2020) - Danny Sams III is checking a bucket list item off this weekend when he tackles the 33 rd annual COMP Cams Short Track Nationals presented by Hoosier Tires.
The Sams LaMountain Racing driver made his debut at I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark., in June and will return to the oval this Friday and Saturday for one of the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour's marquee events.
"It's super cool to be able to go to these big races and to be part of it," Sams III said. "I believe we learned a lot the last time. We had plenty of speed. A mishap in the B Main cost us a shot at making the feature, but I think we had a competitive car."
Sams III enters this weekend ranked 10th in the ASCS National Tour championship standings and he is in contention for the Rookie of the Year Award as the series only has four remaining races in 2020.
The Short Track Nationals is one of 360ci winged sprint car racing's biggest shows. The winner's share from the Saturday finale is $10,041, which is one of the highest in the division. The event routinely draws several dozen competitors from across the country seeking the stout payout as well as bragging rights.
"If we carry the momentum we gained two weekends ago hopefully we can make the show," he said. "We definitely have gained a lot of experience at these tracks that are new to us. We have a full notebook and it's great to return to tracks not starting out chasing a setup. Hopefully we can take another step forward this weekend."
