For 2017 the Super Late Model division will battle a total payout in excess of $40,000 as the Mississippi State Championship Challenge Series (MSCCS) Super Late Model thunders into town. The finale will be headlined by a $10,000-to-win/$1,000-to-start, 75-lap feature, which again matches the richest event in the facilities history.
