McCool Ready For Home State Battle

McCool’’s most recent victory at Whynot came in the track’s 2013 season opener on Saturday night. He tuned up for the speedway’’s historic World of Outlaws show by capturing a Mississippi State Championship Challenge Series event.

“We’’ve had quite a bit of success there over the years,”” said McCool, who has earned four of his 10 career MSCCS victories at Whynot. “”I always like racing there. It’’s kind of a fast little deal, a big circle where you can race two- or three-wide – and sometimes even four-wide. Last year in the (season-ending) Fall Classic we ran three-wide for the lead for 50 laps.

““I would say it’s the best racing in Mississippi,”” he added. “”Back years ago it used to be follow-the-leader racing a lot, but (owner) Rodney (Wing) has just totally changed that place for the better since he took it over. He’’s done a real good job with the surface.””

McCool, who won the 2012 WoO LMS Rookie of the Year award with one of the best seasons a first-year traveler has ever enjoyed (one win, nine top-five and 15 top-10 finishes), will enter Whynot’’s World of Outlaws program riding a wave of momentum. He struggled for most of the tour’s season-opening eight-race swing through Georgia and Florida last month, failing to register a single top-five finish, but came alive over the past two weeks, preceding his Whynot score with a $10,000 triumph in the unsanctioned Pelican 100 on March 9 at Ark-La-Tex Speedway in Vivian, La.
