More Money Added to Country Pleasin’ Sausage Magnolia State Cotton Pickin’ 100 Weekend
Mega Event Set for September 26-28 at Magnolia Motor Speedway
Columbus, Mississippi (08/27/19) – Just a tick over three weeks away from coming to life, the 2019 edition of the Country Pleasin’ Sausage Magnolia State Cotton Pickin’ 100 at Magnolia Motor Speedway has just had more money added to the weekend’s purse.
Magnolia State 100 founder, Dewitt Singleton is adding some additional money to the Super Late Model payout.
“I wanted to do a little something extra this year, so I decided to put up a couple of special bonuses,” Singleton revealed. “I’ve posted a $2,000 bonus for a Super Late Model driver, who can win both nights. If somebody sweeps the weekend, they now will win $18,000.
“I also wanted to give an extra driver the opportunity to start Saturday night’s Super Late Model feature. So, after the B-Mains on Saturday night, we are going to throw everybody’s name into a hat and randomly draw a 25th starter for the 70-lap finale. That means an extra driver is going to make at least $700 that they weren’t expecting to make so that pretty cool.”
The 2019 Magnolia State Cotton Pickin’ 100 will be held on Thursday-Saturday, September 26-28.
Entries have already begun to roll in for the Super Late Model portion of the program. Early entries include Jack Sullivan, Brandon Overton, Garrett Alberson, Morgan Bagley, Shay Knight, Billy Moyer Jr., Dane Dacus, Vic Hill, Billy Moyer, Austin Rettig, Zach McMillan, John Tweed, Kyle Beard, Chad Thrash, Eric Cooley and more.
The early entry fee for the weekend is only $100. Super Late Model competitors have until Saturday, September 21 to file an early entry for the event. After this date, the entry fee will be $150. Competitors must file an early entry by mailing a check to Magnolia Motor Speedway, 495 Highway 45 South, Columbus, MS 39701 or competitors can give Johnny Stokes (662-574-2572), Ben Shelton (901-335-3037) or any of the Magnolia Motor Speedway staff early entries.
After seeing an Open Practice Session held on Thursday, September 26 there will be a complete $4,000-to-win/$300-to-start program on Friday, September 27 for the Super Late Models.
