NASHVILLE, Ark. (April 10) – Titan Crump proved up to challenge Saturday night, topping the opening Challenge Series installment at Diamond Park Speedway and taking home $1,000 for his first IMCA STARS Mod Lite feature win of the season. 

After tuning up for the 20-lap main event with the $100 dash for cash victory, Crump started from the pole and had his hands full with Blake Wilson near midway before pulling away from the rest of the field.

“This is my biggest win. It’s awesome,” said Crump, who followed the middle groove much of the way and used the lower line to work through traffic. “The track was great.”

After motor issues in his first start of the season, Crump had run third at home track I-30 Speedway’s Joey Bradshaw Memorial the previous weekend.

“The good luck is starting to come back,” he said. 

Chad Kirkpatrick and 13th starting Chris Tucker completed the top three at Diamond Park.
