Darrell Lanigan Leads the Way in Magnolia State Cotton Pickin’ Opener
Mega Event Draws to a Close on Saturday, September 28


Columbus, Mississippi (09/27/19) – Kentucky’s Darrell Lanigan cashed in first at the Country Pleasin’ Sausage Magnolia State Cotton Pickin’ 100 on Friday night at Magnolia Motor Speedway. The pilot of the GottaRace.com No. 29 Club 29 Race Car Super Late Model scored the $4,000 Super Late Model victory over a talented field of 35 entries from 10 states.

“I had to watch lapped traffic there, but all of the cards fell where I needed them and we got the win,” Lanigan said. “We always enjoyi coming to Magnolia Motor Speedway, and tonight was no exception. My team gave me a great car tonight, and now we’re focused on winning the $12,000 top prize tomorrow night and the $2,000 bonus that comes with sweeping the weekend.”

New Mexico’s Garrett Alberson was joined on the front for the feature by Darrell Lanigan. Lanigan shot to the lead as the race went green. A single caution slowed the action on lap 3. From there the Bluegrass State racer successfully navigated heavy lapped traffic to claim the victory. With the triumph Lanigan makes himself eligible for a $2,000 bonus if he can also win Saturday night’s $12,000 finale.

Fourth-starting Chris Ferguson ran second for the first half of the feature before Mike Marlar slipped past for the spot. Marlar went on to finish second and was followed across the finish line by Ferguson, Chris Brown, and Brandon Overton.

Spring, Texas racer, Chris Brown banked a $200 prize, courtesy of Ace Portable Buildings (Columbus, Mississippi), for setting fast time in qualifications.

In MSSS Three Star Tire and Auto Street Stock competition, 19 competitors registered for action. Dewayne Estes blazed to the fast time honors in qualifying and received a $200 bonus from Bob Roberts Barbeque for his quick circuit. Heat race action found Matt Byram and Justin McRee snaring wins to earn front row, starting spots for Saturday night’s finale.

Durrence Layne Late Model action found 37 competitors in the pit area with Saraland, Alabama’s Monte Skinner setting fast time before backing it up with a heat race win to earn the pole position for Saturday night’s $3,000-to-win finale.
