Rodney Wing Gets First Career PRO Series Win at Magnolia Motor Speedway

Columbus, Mississippi (11/27/10) – Whynot Motorsports Park promoter, Rodney Wing, continued his torrid late season pace behind the wheel of a Thrash Motorsports entry as he powered the #1c Thrash Motorsports/ Rocket Super Late Model to the $2,000 PRO Dirt Car Series feature win at Magnolia Motor Speedway (Columbus, Mississippi) on Saturday night.

Forty-eight Super Late Models entered the event as first year Super Late Model racer, Jason Brock, blazed to the Southern Belle Pole Award in time trials. He was joined on the front row for the feature event by fellow first year, Super Late Model racer, TK King from Columbus, Mississippi. At the drop of the green flag in the feature, Brock would bolt to the top spot with David Breazeale and Rodney Wing in pursuit as King began to fade.

Jason Brock held the top spot during the early laps of the event as Wing moved past Breazeale to take the second spot on lap four, and one lap later Wing would use a power move on the high side exiting turn four to take the lead from Brock as Breazeale began to work on Brock for second.
The leaders would enter lapped traffic by lap ten and the next five laps would see great racing through lapped traffic before the first caution of the event waved on lap 15 for Scott Flurry, who made hard contact with the turn four wall, bringing his night to an early end.

With Wing at the point and Breazeale and Jason Brock in tow the event got back underway as Neil Baggett launched himself from the fifth spot to the second spot on the restart. Baggett would start to reel in the leader before the caution flew on lap 19 for fourth running, Dane Dacus, who saw his night come to an end after hard contact with the turn four wall.

The top five running order for the restart consisted of Wing, Baggett, Breazeale, Wade Byars, and Jake Knight.
On the restart the running order would remain the same as the event would see a five lap run before the final caution flew on lap 25 as Tony Morris duplicated the feats of other competitors in the feature by making hard contact with the turn four wall.

As the field went green for the final time, it appeared that Rodney Wing was on his way to the comfortable win, but Baggett and Thrash would have other ideas as they caught the leader by lap 30 as they battled side-by-side for the second spot. Breazeale cleared Baggett with three laps to go as he set his sights on the leader. However, Wing would go on to lead the finals laps to claim the win over David Breazeale, Neil Baggett, Wade Byars, and Mathew Turner.

Rodney Wing double his pleasure on the night as he stormed to the lead in the $500 to win Open Wheel Modified feature and never looked back as he picked up the win over Blake Koenigsberger and Ben Stephens.

In the Street Stock feature, Trey Bright spent the early laps chasing Tony Silvestri, but would use a late lap pass to claim the win over Silvestri and Bill Sudduth.

In the NeSmith Chevrolet Crate Late Model Invitational, Jeremy Shaw led the entire distance from his front row starting spot, but the win would not come easy as he had to fend away the early advances of veteran, Johnny Virden, before having to fight off a late race charge by young driver, Jamie Tollison. At the checkered flag Shaw was fired by Tollison and Virden.

Via heat race action Landon Frith and Elvis Turbeville have entered the front row starting spots for Sunday evening's $750 to win, Kajun Mini Stock feature.

The 10th Annual Possum Town Grand Prix will conclude on Sunday afternoon with a $3,000 to win/$200 to start, 40 lap Super Late Model event, a $2,500 to win, NeSmith Late Model Series event, a $500 to win, Street Stock event, and a $750 to win, Open Wheel Modified event at Magnolia Motor Speedway.
