Bub McCool Records Podium Finish in Fall Classic; World Finals Next

October 31st, 2014

Vicksburg, MS – Bub McCool competed at Whynot Motorsports Park (Meridian, Mississippi) over the weekend in his #57J McCool Logging/ Victory Circle/Jay Dickens Racing Engine Super Late Model as he took part in the 20th Annual Coors Light Fall Classic at the 1/3 mile oval, where he came away with a podium finish.

Forty-eight Super Late Models entered the event, and a heat race victory on Friday night would position Bub starting third in the $15,000-to-win finale on Saturday. When the 100 lapper went green, McCool raced around the top five for much of the event before ultimately registering a third place finish behind race winner, Randy Weaver and Chris Simpson. Mike Marlar and Billy Moyer rounded out the top five finishers.

“I thought there for a while that we might have something for the leaders, but then I drove it into the wall late in the race, which killed any chances I had of winning,” said McCool. “Either way this is my best finish ever in this big event, so I’m definitely happy about that.”

Full results from the event are available at www.WhynotMotorsportsPark.com .

McCool’s next scheduled race is a trip to the 8th Annual World Finals at the Dirt Track at Charlotte (Charlotte, North Carolina) on November 6th-8th.

Klint Byars Caps Season with Top Five Finish in Fall Classic

November 3rd, 2013

Calhoun City, Mississippi – Even though it was a much-condensed season compared to the schedule that Klint Byars typically runs in his #5 Southern Belle/K&K Motorsports/Victory Circle M1 Chassis By Moyer/Jay Dickens Racing Engine Super Late Model, he made the most of his outings and capped the campaign over the weekend with a top five finish in the 19th Annual Coors Light Fall Classic.

Due to starting a new business as well as becoming a home owner, the 2013 season hasn’t offered many opportunities for Klint Byars to pilot his race car. In fact he only made five starts this year, but in those five starts he scored a win as well as a trio of top fives and four top ten finishes.

His final outing of the season came over the weekend as he made the trek to Whynot Motorsports Park (Meridian, Mississippi) for the 19th Annual Coors Light Fall Classic at the 1/3 mile oval. With a $15,000 prize on the line a strong field of 42 entries took to the facility for the event, and via qualifications Byars earned the 2nd starting spot for his heat race. He would go on to race to a 2nd place finish to lock into the 9th starting spot for the 100 lap finale on Saturday evening.

In the main event Byars enjoyed a great run as he advanced through the field to record a 5th place finish behind race winner, Shane Clanton, Don O’Neal, Steve Francis, and Jeremy Payne.

“I sure hated not getting to race more than I did this year, but sometimes life gets in the way of play,” noted Byars. “When we did race we had some good runs, and I definitely look forward to getting back into the full swing of things in 2014!”

Full results from the event are available at www.WhynotMotorsportsPark.com.

K&K Motorsports would like to thank its sponsors including Southern Belle, Byars Motorsports, Jay Dickens Racing Engines, Kirk Auto Company, Schaeffer’s Specialized Lubricants, Sivesind Racing Shocks, Hoosier Race Tires South, K&K Quik Stop, Lovorn & Lovorn Trucking, Victory Circle M1 Chassis By Moyer, Base Race Fuels, Bona-Fide Southern, X-Treme Graphics By J-Rod, & MSRMafia.com .

Bub McCool Takes the Bird at Ark-La-Tex; Whynot Up Next

March 17th, 2013

Vicksburg, MS – Bub McCool piloted his #57J McCool Logging/Southern Belle/Schaeffer Oil/Victory Circle M1 Chassis By Moyer/Jay Dickens Racing Engine Super Late Model to the $10,000 win in the 3rd Annual Pelican 100 on Saturday night.

After finishing second two years in a row Bub McCool finally claimed his first Pelican 100 victory on Saturday night in the third running of the event.

The $10,000-to-win, unsanctioned event attracted forty-seven Super Late Models to Ark-La-Tex Speedway (Vivian, Louisiana). McCool started his weekend by registering a lap of 14.234 seconds around the oval to earn top qualifier honors. Heat race action found him out-dueling Terry Phillips to score the win, which locked him into the pole for Saturday night’s 100 lap finale.

While McCool led a majority of the feature the win was far from easy as he had to fend off Chris Wall early in the event before battling Don O’Neal during the race’s mid-stages. Late in the event Bub began to battle mechanical issues as Billy Moyer moved into challenge for the top spot. McCool held on to score the win over Moyer, Phillips, O’Neal, and Wall.

“It was good to finally finish one spot higher at this joint,” an elated McCool commented in victory lane. “At the end something was going away in the motor, and I was just hanging on for dear life with Moyer back there. I have to thank Schaeffer Oil, and all of my great sponsors and fans for their support.”

Full results from the event are available at www.ArkLaTexSpeedway.com.

The upcoming weekend will see McCool Motorsports entering a single race as they travel to Whynot Motorsports Park (Meridian, Mississippi) for a $2,500-to-win, Mississippi State Championship Challenge Series (MSCCS) event on Saturday night. For more information on the event, please visit www.StateSeries.com .

Bub McCool and everyone at McCool Motorsports would like to thank all of their sponsors, which include Southern Belle, McCool Logging, Jay Dickens Racing Engines, Henderson Motorsports, Hoosier Race Tires, Eibach Springs, Victory Circle M1 Chassis By Moyer, Good Hope Lumber, Schaeffer’s Specialized Lubricants, New Vision Graphics, GottaRace.com, and MSRMafia.com Marketing Services.

Don O’Neal Takes Second Coors Light Fall Classic Title

October 17th, 2012

Whynot, Mississippi- Don O’Neal made himself right at home while making a guest appearance with Childress Racing during Whynot Motorsports Park’s 18th annual Coors Light Fall Classic.

O’Neal, the Martinsville, Ind., driver who normally pilots the MasterSbilt Race Cars house car owned by Keith and Tader Masters, led all but the first lap of Saturday night’s 100-lap main event at Whynot’s third-mile oval, earning $15,000 for his second victory in the unsanctioned special event.

Starting from the outside of the front row in a brand new MasterSbilt Race Car, O’Neal drove around polesitter Billy Moyer of Batesville, Ark., on the second lap and cruised for the majority of the race. He built more than a straightaway advantage at times before pulling away from Mike Marlar of Winfield, Tenn., after a lap-66 restart.

“We’ve had fun all weekend whether we won or lost. It’s just been a good weekend,” said O’Neal, who drove a brand new MasterSbilt car for the Louisiana-based Childress team. “We were fast right out of the box and ain’t done much to the race car all weekend. It’s just one of those good weekends you always hope for.”

The ninth-starting Marlar scored the runner-up finish only after holding off a late challenge from 11th-starting Dane Dacus of Lakeland, Tenn. Clint Smith of Senoia, Ga., finished fourth after running as high as second while Steve Francis of Ashland, Ky., rounded out the top five in a race slowed by just two cautions. Moyer, who was looking for his first Fall Classic victory, faded to a seventh-place finish.

O’Neal’s toughest challenge came in the form of lapped traffic. Slower cars raced in nearly every groove on a surface that was black from top to bottom, making selecting the right lane through traffic difficult. But O’Neal deftly handled the slower cars and never allowed his competitors the opportunity to move within striking distance.

“There early, I had no idea to run low or high,” O’Neal said. “It was just so tough to pass because of the momentum. But when I passed those lap cars low in one and two, I kinda figured out it was probably the best place to stay.”

It didn’t matter where O’Neal ran on the racetrack, he always seemed by far faster than any of his competitors. He pulled away from Moyer running the high groove early, then maintained a healthy advantage over a charging Smith through the middle portions of the race. Finally, O’Neal ran a low line through turns one and two and the high groove at the other end of the track while pulling away from Marlar late.

“The car was actually pretty good wherever I had to run it,” O’Neal said. “We hadn’t put hard tires on yet, so we really didn’t know what we were gonna have (for the feature). We really figured as good as we were on the soft stuff, just tighten up a little bit and we’d be OK. And we was.”

While O’Neal checked out, the multi-grooved racetrack produced plenty of close racing action behind him. Marlar was often in the thick of the battles, at times going three wide while making his run toward the front.

“This is a really fun place to race because you’ve gotta chase the groove on the racetrack all over,” said Marlar, who finished in the top five at Whynot for the second straight year. “Literally, every part of that track was better than the other parts at some point in the race. So not only are you chasing the racetrack, but you’re also trying to pass people too while you’re doing that.”

Marlar stuck with O’Neal briefly following the lap-66 restart, even looking under the leader a few laps after the restart. But O’Neal picked up his pace and easily pulled away.

Struggling to keep up with O’Neal through traffic, Marlar settled into second and held off the hard-charging Dacus in the closing laps to score the runner-up finish by less than a car length.

“I showed (O’Neal) my nose there and he changed his line. It was over with them. I couldn’t do nothing with him,” Marlar said. “The harder I drove my car, the better it worked. So once I got my tires fired up and gripping, I kinda stayed after it. But after that caution they cooled back off and I was too free again.”

Dacus was one of the fastest cars at the end of the race. After restarting sixth on lap 66, he began picking up spots running the low groove and tracked down Marlar in the closing laps. He was hoping for a caution to reset the field for a run to the finish, but that never came.

“I’d like to had a caution there toward the end to kinda bunch us back up,” Dacus said. “I feel like we were coming pretty good. But you never know if O’Neal and Marlar were taking it easy toward the end. Either way though, it’s a good run for our team.”

The M-D Metals Crate Late Model division saw Justin McRee continue his winning ways at the 1/3 mile oval by powering to the $2,000 victory over Jimbo McDuffie, Wayne Murphy, Tim Dees, and Chance Inman.

The Country Pleasin’ Street Stock finale saw Jeremy Idom and Landon Frith waging war for the top spot during the first half of the event before mechanical woes led to the demise of Frith. Idom went on to claim the win over Michael Williams, Jeffrey Walker, Donnie Monk, and James Elfring.

The Etheridge Race Parts UMP Open Wheel Modified finale was topped by local standout Randy King with Cade Dillard, Timothy Culp, Gregg Hollingsworth, and Jason Brock completing the top five in the $2,000-to-win finale.

The Robinson Electric Pure Stock division held a complete program on Saturday evening, and when the checkered flag dropped it was Landon Hembree, who claimed the victory, over Ray McKay, Mindi Sisson, Josh Carpenter, and Jennifer Cooper.

Charles and Jannie Thrash along with Rodney and Cassie Wing would like to thank everybody for their support of the 18th Annual Coors Light Fall Classic. Over 170 competitors took part in the program over the course of the beautiful weekend, and the event went down in the history books as one of the most successful ever.

Twenty-five Super Late Models entered the event, and Byars started the night by unofficially setting a new track record at the racy, clay oval. Via his qualifying effort he earned the pole starting position for the dash, which he would finish second to Breazeale. As a result, Klint started outside front row for the 50 lap feature, and at the drop of the green flag, the lead duo would begin a battle that would rage for the majority of the caution-free event. Byars and Breazeale would swap the lead close to ten times before Byars inched ahead for good on lap 38 and went on to claim the biggest win of his career, which was his second overall of the season. Breazeale, Steve Bryan, Jeremy Broadus, and Rodney Wing rounded out the final top five. With the win Klint now leads the tour’ standings. Full results are available at www.StateSeries.com.

Meridian, Mississippi – Chad Thrash considers Whynot Motorsports Park his home track and has competed there on several occasions, but on Saturday night he drove his #1c Tomkat of Chunky/Rocket/Roush Yates Racing Engine Super Late Model to his first ever Super Late Model win at the facility.

Chad entered a $1,000 to win, unsanctioned event at Whynot Motorsports Park (Meridian, Mississippi) on Saturday night. A solid field of twenty-three Super Late Models were entered into the program, which served as a tune-up for the upcoming weekend’s 16th Annual Fall Classic. In heat race action, Chad started second and picked up the win to earn the pole position for the feature. In the main event he would bolt to the lead early and would never look back as he claimed the win over Ronny Lee Hollingsworth, Klint Byars, David Breazeale, and Jimbo McDuffie. The victory was Chad’s third of 2010.

Thrash had claimed a Crate Late Model win at the track, but this win marked his first ever Super Late Model win at the facility.

A strong field of national and regional talent is expected to clash at the lightning fast oval this weekend, and Thrash will be in pursuit of his biggest career win.

He will look for redemption in this year’s event which will get underway on Thursday, October 21st with an Open Practice Session. On Friday time trials and heat race action will be held, while Saturday will see b-main action as well as the 100 lap finale. For more information please visit www.WhynotMotorsportsPark.com .

Bub McCool Claims First Career PRO Series Win

July 7th, 2010

(Meridian, Mississippi) – Bub McCool overcame a furious midrace challenge from Jimbo McDuffie and David Breazeale to claim the $2,000 win in Round #3 of the Four Crown Nationals at Whynot Motorsports Park in Meridian, Mississippi.

A stout field of thirty-seven Super Late Models assembled at Rodney Wing’s Whynot Motorsports Park for Round #3 of the Four Crown Nationals. For the third straight night, Bub McCool blazed to the Southern Belle Pole Qualifier Award. He was joined on the front row by Jason Cliburn. It was McCool, who got a great jump at the start of the race to lead the first lap over Cliburn, Ronny Lee Hollingsworth, Jimbo McDuffie, and Chad Thrash. As McCool jumped to the early lead Hollingsworth and McDuffie began
to battle side by side for the second spot as various two and three wide battles reigned supreme through the field.

By lap three Cliburn disposed of Hollingsworth in the battle for the second spot as he found himself ten car lengths behind the leader. With McCool maintaining the lead, the first several laps would see great racing throughout the field, and by lap 8, McCool was already entering lapped traffic. With the leaders working lapped traffic, it was David Breazeale, who was on the move, and by the time that the event’s lone caution flew on lap 15 as Bradley Price rolled to a stop in turn three. The caution eliminated McCool’s large lead with Cliburn, McDuffie, Hollingsworth, and Breazeale making up the top five in the running order.

Total chaos would ensue on the restart as the field flared three and even four wide for position with the green flag in the air. McDuffie raced past Cliburn for second as Cliburn began to fade. With McCool on the hub and McDuffie on the cushion the duo raced furiously for the lead as Breazeale raced his way into the third position and joined the battle for the lead. Two laps later on the seventeenth circuit, McDuffie overtook McCool for the lead, and one lap later Breazeale would rocket to the second spot past
McCool. Despite slipping to third, Bub McCool would stay committed to the bottom, and on lap 22 he would race past Breazeale and McDuffie to return to the lead. He would never relinquish it as he went on to lead the remaining laps en route to his first win of the 2010 season in his #57J Victory Circle Chassis. Breazeale, Hollingsworth, Chad Thrash, and McDuffie rounded out the top five.

Round #4 of the Four Crown Nationals will be held on Sunday, July 4th at Magnolia Motor Speedway in Columbus, Mississippi. For more information, please visit http://www.MagnoliaMotorSpeedway.net,

warm up lap for the feature ending his night before the feature ever took
the green flag.

On Saturday night, Bub traveled to Columbus Speedway in Columbus,
Mississippi for the 16th Annual James King Memorial. Bub started 9th in the
feature event, and for much of the feature event battled in the top 10
before retiring near the race’s midpoint with mechanical woes. He was
credited with a 17th place finish.
