Chris Ferguson Wins Thrilling Magnolia State Cotton Pickin’ 100 Opener
Championship Night Set for Saturday Evening


Columbus, Mississippi (09/21/18) – The racing action at the Magnolia State Cotton Pickin’ 100 presented by Country Pleasin Sausage at Magnolia Motor Speedway officially came to life on Friday night, and it definitely didn’t disappoint.

165 racecars in five divisions filled the pit area.

Chris Ferguson started the night by besting 57 Super Late Model entries to blaze to the fastest lap in time trials. He backed up his qualifying effort by winning his heat race to lock into the pole position for the 30-lap, $4,000-to-win feature.

Ferguson was joined on the front row by Dirt Late Model Hall of Famer, Billy Moyer. It was Moyer who shot to the lead as the race went green. He paced the field until late in the race, when he encountered heavy lapped traffic. Ferguson capitalized on lapped traffic to take the lead with just two laps remaining. The North Carolina driver went on to claim the win, while 13th-starting Dale McDowell edged Moyer for the runner-up spot at the line. Jack Sullivan finished fourth and 22nd-starting Jason Hiett rounded out the Top-5 finishers.

“I never dreamed I would beat two Hall of Famers like Moyer and McDowell on a track that was this slick,” an elated Ferguson said in Victory Lane. “We drove all night to be here, and then to get this win is just amazing. It was a long trip, but this definitely made it worth it.”

Thirty-seven Durrence Layne Late Models registered for battle, and time trials were used to set the starting grids for three heat races. Justin McRee, Evan Ellis and Randall Beckwith snared the heat race wins.

Mississippi Street Stock Series action saw Ben Keith set fast time over a field 23 entries. Keith, Justin McRee, and Matt Byram won the heat races.

With 31 Durrence Layne Sportsman competitors on hand, Tyler Burgess, Justin McRee and Pickard all notched heat race wins.

Factory Stock heat race action was topped by Cody Chism and Scooter Ware.

On Saturday evening the Super Late Model competitors will compete in a full program that will culminate with a $12,000-to-win/ $700-to-start finale.

All other divisions will contest B-Mains and the Magnolia State Cotton Pickin’ 100 presented by Country Pleasin’ Sausage main events. The Durrence Layne Late Models will be competing for a $3,000 top prize. MSSS Street Stocks will be competing for $2,000-to-win. Factory Stocks/Pure Stocks will be competing for $1,000-to-win, and Late Model Sportsman will race for $1,200-to-win. 

Magnolia State Cotton Pickin’ Trophies will be presented to each winner!

At noon at the track in the grandstand area the Carl Hanson Memorial BBQ lunch will be held. Donations will be accepted for the barbecue plates with all money raised going to the Racer’s Benefit Fund, which helps racers and their families in times of need.
