The Mississippi State Championship Challenge Series will open its 2019 season at Jackson Motor Speedway in Byram, MS on March 16th.  A large group of drivers are expected to be on hand with defending champion Chad Thrash and the defending Rookie of the Year Shay Knight leading the way.  Chad Thrash will be sporting the “Pink” spoiler supplied by O.H. Hendricks as the defending champion..but who will have the spoiler at nights end?

MSCCS would like to thank Thompson Auto Repair and KB Motorsports for coming on board for the 2019 season as a hard charger sponsor.  The driver that advances the most during the feature event will receive $100…provided they were able to take the checkered flag. 

There will be a Rookie of the Year Program for the 2019 season sponsored by Hoosier Tire South with the ROY taking home $1500 in addition to their regular points fund winnings.  Drivers who wish to participate in the Rookie Program may pick up a form at the first event and return it by the third event for approval.

This will be a 40-lap $3,000 to win event with a $100 Entry Fee plus transponder fees.  Drivers not transferring from the B-Mains will receive $50 for non-qualifiers pay.  The format for the MSCCS Super Late Models will be the “Country Pleasin” qualifying to determine the top 8 starting positions for the main event.  Positions 9 thru 20 will be filled from the Cliburn Tank Lines B-Mains while positions 21 and 22 will be determined from the top 15 in points for 2018.
