"Daddy Dave" Comstock, a beloved figure among Street Outlaws fans, celebrated a well-deserved triumph on Saturday night at the No Prep Kings event held in Bowling Green, Kentucky. This victory marked a significant milestone in his career, as it was his first-ever win in the series. In a thrilling showdown, Comstock found himself in the final round for only the second time, where he skillfully maneuvered his ProCharger/Hemi-powered Audi S5 to victory against his fierce competitor, Nate Sayler. The hard-earned win not only rewarded Comstock with a prize of $40,000 but also contributed valuable points to both his individual Great 8 and team championship standings, bolstering his position in the highly competitive racing landscape.

Despite facing early eliminations in the previous "No Prep Kings" events in Virginia and Minnesota, Comstock faced yet another challenge in his quest for victory. He had to fight his way into the invitational event on Saturday, and his weekend in Kentucky initially seemed doomed when a broken rearend during his lone test run on Friday evening left him sidelined. Helplessly, he watched as his opponent, Tim Brown, secured a solo win and an automatic invitational bid. However, fate took a favorable turn for Comstock when he was selected, along with one other driver, to fill the remaining spots in Saturday's main event. Determined not to be deterred, Comstock and his team worked tirelessly to build a replacement rearend overnight, which was successfully delivered to the racetrack just in time for the opening round on Saturday. This turn of events set the stage for an exhilarating comeback as Comstock embraced the fresh opportunity to showcase his skills on the track.

Comstock's journey to the ultimate stage of the competition was a testament to his skill, strategy, and determination to come out on top.
