Black Ice Tamed by Bub McCool in CCSDS Competition

Columbus, Mississippi (05/09/15) – For the second-straight night the COMP Cams Super Dirt Series (CCSDS) presented by Lucas Oil competed in a challenge event against the Mississippi State Championship Challenge Series (MSCCS) in the Magnolia State. While the venue changed, the winner did not as Vicksburg, Mississippi’s Bub McCool snared top honors in the $2,500-to-win affair.

Saturday’s action was contested at the state-of-the-art, Magnolia Motor Speedway (Columbus, Mississippi), where a stout field of forty-seven competitors entered the event.

While Fulton, Mississippi’s Eric Cooley earned the New Vision Graphics Pole Award via preliminary action, it was fellow-front-row starter, Billy Moyer, who jumped to the lead at the drop of the green flag. Moyer paced the field until lap 7, when McCool capitalized on lap traffic to seize control of the top spot. Moyer fell to second with Chad Thrash, Timothy Culp and Jimmy Cliburn in close pursuit.

The next several laps allowed McCool to stretch his advantage. However, as the race approached its midway point, the field again endured lapped traffic, which saw Moyer narrow the gap. Lap 21 found Moyer catapulting back into the top spot, and he would lead the next two laps before McCool regained control for good on lap 23.

The event’s sole caution flew on lap 24, when Brian Rickman rolled to a stop. At the time of the caution McCool led over Moyer, Thrash, Dane Dacus, Chad Thrash, and Rick Rickman.

As the green flew again McCool was able to motor away from the pack en route to the weekend sweep aboard his RBT Motorsports #57J Club 29/Jay Dickens Super Late Model. The victory was the fourth of his career with the CCSDS.

“I always love coming to Magnolia, but this place has a history of giving me fits,” noted McCool. “Tonight though the car was awesome. I have to thank my car owner, Randy Thompson, along with my crew, fans, and sponsors for their great support.”
Billy Moyer paced the field in qualifying with a 13.379 second lap around the 3/8 mile oval.

Eric Cooley won GRT Race Cars Heat Race #1 with Billy Moyer winning Allen Manufacturing Heat Race #2. Eric HIckerson raced to victory in Hoosier Tire Heat Race #3, while won Bub McCool Lucas Oil Heat Race #4.

The Boston’s Sports Bar and Restaurants B-Mains were topped by Clay Fisher and Chad McCool.

The Larry Shaw Race Cars Hard Charger Award went to Clay Fisher for advancing twelve spots from his 18th starting position. Allen Murray was the recipient of the Wilwood Tough Break of the Race Award for falling victim to a melee in his heat race, while in a transfer spot, and then seeing an engine expire, while running in a transfer spot in the b-main.

The CCSDS competitors will now enjoy the rest of May free from racing action. Next on tap will be the 5th Annual Rockabilly 45 at I-30 Speedway (Little Rock, Arkansas), which will be held June 5th-6th. Friday night’s program will be highlighted by a $1,500-to-win/$200-to-start feature, while Saturday will include a $3,000-to-win/$300-to-start feature.

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.
