Dillard rumbles to Cotton Pickin' 100 finale at Magnolia, earns $12,000
Cade Dillard claimed his biggest win of the season on Saturday night with a $12,000 triumph in the finale of the Cotton Pickin’ at Magnolia Motor Speedway aboard his S&S Fishing & Rental Inc. No. 97 Krohn Farms / Black Diamond Race Car / Clements Racing Engine Super Late Model.
The victory was the seventh of the year for Dillard.
“We had a really good car tonight,” Dillard said in Victory Lane at the Johnny Stokes oval. “We learned a lot of things last night. We weren’t the best and figured out what we didn’t need to do, but we changed a lot of stuff today and I felt like we hit on something. I probably stepped it up with about 10 or so to go just to make sure I left myself with a gap. I just want to thank everybody, who believes in me and makes this all possible.”
Cade Dillard was back behind the wheel of his S&S Fishing & Rental No. 97 Super Late Model on Friday evening for the opening round of the two-day Cotton Pickin’ 100 at Magnolia Motor Speedway (Columbus, Miss.).
Drawing 40 Late Models for the unsanctioned weekend, Dillard edged his way into Friday’s $4,000-to-win preliminary feature with the fourth-and-final transfer spot in his heat race. Wheeling his way into the Top-10, Cade passed eight cars in the 40-lap affair to register an eighth-place finish.
On Saturday, Cade followed up the second-fastest lap in his time trial group with a heat race triumph. Tracking down early pacesetter Billy Moyer Jr. on lap 26 to assume command of the lead, Dillard wired the field in the remainder of the 60-lapper to capture his seventh win of the season and a $12,000 paycheck. He finished ahead of Wil Herrington, Moyer Jr., Kyle Beard, and Josh Putnam.
