Jimmy"The Newport nightmare" Owens picks up Cotton Pickin win

Jimmy Owens has showed interest in the MSSS since we made our first appearance at the Clash at the Mag in 2013.    Car owner Jesse Barnett would give Owens an opportunity to race with the MSSS this past weekend at the 2014 Cotton Pickin $2000 to win event.   With over 40 of the top SS drivers in the south signed in, it would not be easy for Owens. 

During Owens Heat race, he found out quick that the MSSS is loaded with talent.  Owens and 2013 MSSS champion Calvin Cook battled it out side by side for the entire 10 lap event, with Owens edging out Cook by a slim margin.  The feature would be no different.  Owens, Cook, Robinson, Idom, and Butler would all race side by side for several laps.  At one time 2014 Nesmith Champion Jeremy Idom would past Owens for the lead, only to have it taken away by a caution flag.  Owens would go on and win the 20 lap event with Jeremy Idom 2nd, Jason Harrison 3rd, Calvin Cook 4th, and Jeff Butler 5th. 

We would like to thank Johnny Stokes and all the folks at Magnolia Motor Speedway for letting us race and be part of the 2014 Cotton Pickin.
