Neil Baggett Wins First-Career CCSDS Feature at The Mag
Action Continues Friday Night at Jackson Motor Speedway

Columbus, Mississippi (07/05/18) – The COMP Cams Super Dirt Series (CCSDS) made their second appearance of 2018 at Magnolia Motor Speedway (Columbus, Mississippi) on Thursday night, and for the second-straight event at the 3/8-mile oval there was a first-time series winner in Victory Lane.

Hometown racer, Neil Baggett claimed the $2,000 winner’s check.

“Man, I grew up around here watching guys like Don Hester race, and I always dreamed of doing it,” Baggett said in Victory Lane. “I’ve got to thank Montgomery Farms and all of these great supporters, who allow my dreams to come true. We had a great car tonight, and I just had to make sure I didn’t beat myself. I jumped the cushion in turn three with a few laps remaining and Cade (Dillard) could have slid me dirty, but he didn’t. That’s something I’ll definitely remember the next time, if the roles are reversed.”

New Vision Graphics Pole Sitter, Hunter Rasdon and Neil Baggett brought the field to the green flag for the 35-lap feature. Baggett took advantage of a fast cushion to jump to the lead as the race went green. It would be a lead he would never relinquish.

Cade Dillard and Chad Thrash pursued the leader throughout the event, but not even a pair of cautions would enable them to overtake the Columbus, Mississippi racer for the top spot.

Baggett crossed the finish line a few car lengths ahead of Dillard to score his first-career series win. With the triumph he became the 11th different winner in 16 series events in 2018.

Dillard, Thrash, Jack Sullivan, and Kyle Beard completed the Top-5 finishers.

Kyle Beard received the Larry Shaw Race Cars Hard Charger Award after advancing nine spots to finish fifth. Clay Fisher was the Henryetta Ford Hard Luck Award recipient after mechanical issues ended his night on lap 3.
