Inside Line Promotions - NORTH PORT, Fla. (July 7, 2020) - Danny Sams III is slated to run the longest stretch of Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour action beginning this Saturday at Riverside International Speedway.
The series visits the bullring in West Memphis, Ark., marking the first of five straight weekends with at least one currently scheduled race. It will also be the sixth time the Sams LaMountain Racing driver has competed at the oval, where he last raced in October 2017.
"It's a unique place and it's fun," he said. "We've been going to so many tracks for the first time this year it will be nice to return somewhere we have laps. Racing on small tracks makes it more racy and about the driver. When you get it right you definitely get it right. If we can get it right I'm going to really enjoy it."
Sams III was in contention to win a race at the oval in 2016.
"I led almost the whole race when I was 14-years-old before me and Sammy Swindell got together with three laps to go," he said. "A couple of other times we've been there we either got caught up in a wreck or didn't run well."
The team's best result at the track is a 19th-place finish.
"Hopefully we can get off to a strong start in our heat race and can set ourselves up for success," Sams III said.
He enters the race ranked 15th in the championship standings - only 46 points out of the top 10.
