SOUTHERN ALL STAR DIRT RACING SERIES PR#34

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Riley Hickman Captures Magnolia Speedway Governors Cup Southern All Star Event


COLUMBUS, MS – The Southern All Star Dirt Racing Series returned to the Magnolia Speedway in Columbus, MS., for its annual visit at the 13th Annual Cliburn Truck Lines Governors Cup and three time Southern All Star series champion Riley Hickman of Cleveland, TN., got win #2 on the season and also a $5,000 payday in the 50 lap main.

In SUNOCO Race Fuels qualifying Batesville, AR., driver Wendell Wallace and Hickman were fast qualifiers in their respective groups with Wallace setting overall fast time with a `14.561 lap to Hickman’s 14.669 lap.

Wallace took the lead at the start and was looking to be the man to beat as he stretched out to half a straight lead over Hickman, Jack Sullivan, Eric Cooley and David Breazeale.  Then on lap seven trouble came as the car of Ashton  Winger spun in turn one and right in front of the leaders and Wallace had no place to go as he clipped Winger’s car ending his night, along with Brett White and Cale Finley.  Wallace went to the pits for repairs and returned to the tail end of the field and charged back to a 10th place finish.

This gave the lead to Hickman with Sullivan in second and Cooley third, this trio would then put on a show through the mid stages of the race as they raced each other side by side in and out of lapped traffic, swapping the lead back and forth several times till the last caution of the night appeared on lap 26 for Todd Morrow slowing on the track ending his night.

Hickman lead the field for the remaining 24 laps and held off several more challenges by Sullivan for his 6th career win, Sullivan of Greenbrier, AR., drove a great race and came up short and finished second for his best career run with the series, third went to David Breazeale of Starkville, MS., fourth to Dane Dacus of Lakeland, TN., from his 13th starting spot, and fifth place to Eric Cooley of Fulton, MS.

Hunter Rasdon of Jonesboro, AR., started 22nd and came home in the 6th spot, seventh went to Shay Knight of Columbus, MS., from his 17th starting spot, eighth place went to Dylan Ames of Harvest, AL., ninth to Brad Skinner of Spring Hill, TN., who started in the 20th spot and Wallace finished 10th.

The Southern All Star Dirt Racing Series Magnolia Speedway would like to thank the fans & drivers for their support this weekend at Magnolia, as severe weather was all around the speedway during the afternoon and we know if forced several drivers and a lot of fans to not make the trip to the speedway and we can understand that and look forward to our next visit to Johnny Stokes great facility.

The next event for the Southern All Star Dirt Racing Series will be on Saturday night August 13th at the Talladega Short Track in Eastaboga, AL., and the Michael Head Jr Memorial paying $4,000 to win.
