Magnolia Motor Speedway 2015 Prelim Schedule Released
Columbus, Mississippi (12/18/14) - The preliminary 2015 schedule for Magnolia Motor Speedway has been added to the Schedule page. More dates and details will be added in the coming weeks.
Magnolia Motor Speedway to No Longer Run Mini Stocks
Columbus, Mississippi (12/17/14) - Magnolia Motor Speedway will no longer run Mini Stocks. Due to low car counts and with the class not growing, the facility will no longer run the class. Out of 12 races scheduled at the track in 2014, two drivers ran ten events and one driver ran nine races, which represented the top three drivers in points. Magnolia Motor Speedway regrets cutting the class, but it was deemed that the division was given plenty of time to grow. The track is now offering a much more affordable Factory Stock Class. Magnolia Motor Speedway would like to thank all the Mini Stock drivers that participated in the 2014 racing season.
Factory Stock Division Created at Magnolia for 2015
Columbus, Mississippi (11/26/14) - Magnolia Motor Speedway is excited to announce the launch of the brand-new, Factory Stock class. Rules are now posted for the division and the class will be run at Magnolia Motor Speedway, Jackson Motor Speedway, and Whynot Motorsports Park. This division is designed to be a cheaper stock class for new racers at affordable price.
Any questions about the new class can be answered by Johnny Stokes at 662-574-2572.
