Jack Sullivan and Scott Bloomquist Lead the Way in Cotton Pickin’ Magnolia State Prelims

Columbus, Mississippi (10/10/14) – The annual Magnolia State Cotton Pickin’ 100 came to life on Friday night at Magnolia Motor Speedway as over 165 competitors converged on the state-of-the-art, 3/8 mile oval to battle for their share of over $90,000 in prize money.

Jack Sullivan from Greenbrier, Arkansas paced the stellar field of 72 entries in qualifying with a lap of 13.707 seconds around the 3/8 mile oval, and then he proceeded to wire the field to win the first heat race over Chase Junghans and Brian Rickman to earn the pole for Saturday night’s 100 lap, $20,000-to-win finale.

The second heat race found Chris Simpson from Oxford, Iowa charging to the lead late in the race to take the lead and the win from Mike Marlar, while Morgan Bagley edged Eric Cooley by a matter of inches to claim the final transfer spot.

Bub McCool from Vicksburg, Mississippi overcame a great early battle with Jared Landers to win heat race #3, while Anthony Burroughs scored the third and final transfer spot.

Fast qualifier in Group B Scott Bloomquist from Mooresburg, Tennessee won heat race #4 by over a straight away with Rick Eckert holding off Billy Moyer for second at the finish line. Bloomquist will join Sullivan on the front row for Saturday night’s 100 lap finale.

Batesville, Arkansas driver, Billy Moyer Jr. may have led the duration of his heat race to claim the win, but it was far from easy as Jimmy Owens staged a late-race run in heat race #5. Moyer Jr. was able to narrowly claim the win with Owens and Rodney Wing rounding out the top three.

The sixth and final heat race was a good one with Crossville, Tennessee’s Randy Weaver claiming the win by inches over a hard-charging, Dennis Erb Jr. The third and final transfer spot was bagged by Shane Clanton

Fifty-two NeSmith Crate Late Models took part in preliminary action on Friday night with Cleveland, Tennessee’s Riley Hickman setting fast time in qualifications.  Jeremy Shaw and Michael Arnold won the first two heat races to earn the front row for Saturday night’s $3,000-to-win feature. Other heat race winners included Evan Ellis, Johnny Stokes, and Kyle Shaw.

The Mississippi Street Stock Series (MSSS) saw 44 entries registering for action with heat race wins going to Jimmy Owens, Brian Hansford, Jeff Butler, and Jeremy Idom.

On Saturday night the annual Cotton Pickin’ Magnolia State 100 draws to a close B-Mains for all divisions will be contested on Saturday night along with Mini Stocks Heat Races and the Magnolia State Cotton Pickin’ 100 Championships Main Event Races.  The Super Late Models will battle for $20,000-to-win/$1,200-to-start. The NeSmith Late Models will chase a $3,000 top prize with the Mississippi Street Stock Series chasing a $2,000 victory. Mini Stocks will also be in action
