Timothy Culp Conquers Gumbo Nationals for Second-Straight Year

Greenville, Mississippi (10/03/15) – It definitely didn’t come easy, and it definitely wasn’t pretty, but Timothy Culp emerged victorious in the 9th Annual Harlow’s Casino Gumbo Nationals at Greenville Speedway on Saturday night. The $10,000 victory marked the second-straight year that the Prattsville, Arkansas driver conquered the ¼ mile confines in the Mississippi State Championship Challenge Series (MSCCS) sanctioned event.

Kyle Cummings and Brian Rickman brought the field to the green flag for the 75-lap affair, but the initial start would be nullified by a spin by 9th starting Ray Moore in turn one. Moore was able to rejoin the tail of the field, and on the ensuing attempt to get the event underway Rickman bolted to the lead with the 4th starting Culp advancing to 2nd with Bub McCool, Cummings, and Eric Cooley in tow.

The caution waved on lap 10 as Tyler Erb spun in turn one with a flat tire. Culp capitalized on the double-file restart as he executed a masterful slide job to take the top spot away from Brian Rickman in turn two. The next few laps found Culp extending his advantage with Rickman, McCool, Cummings, and Jack Sullivan in pursuit.

A lap 19 regrouped the field, but as the green flag waved again Culp again extended his advantage. By the 29th circuit lapped traffic was becoming a factor. Culp’s struggles in traffic allowed Brian Rickman and Bub McCool to reel in the leader. However, bad luck struck for McCool on lap 32, when he nearly spun in turn one. The car slowed considerably and looked to be coming to a complete stop before McCool fired the engine once again. Unfortunately the caution flew for the slowing McCool, and he was sent to the rear. He would be far from done though, and the chaos would be just getting started.

A lap 37 caution for Tommy Surrett set up a restart, where Brian Rickman closely pursued Timothy Culp. Entering turn one on the 40th circuit, Rickman attempted an apparent slide job on Culp, which saw the two make hard contact. Culp was pinched into the outside wall and almost flipped as his passenger side wheels rode the top of the concrete wall. Somehow both drivers manage to keep going, but not before the caution flew. Rickman was credited with the caution due to initiating the contact, and was sent to the tail of the field. Culp amazingly sustained minimal damage, and resumed the lead.

The next restart found 2nd place runner, Kyle Cummings being penalized for jumping the restart. With Cummings pushed back to 3rd, Jack Sullivan was promoted to 2nd. Sullivan’s time in the runner-up spot would be short-lived though as contact with Cummings entering turn three on lap 40 found Sullivan slamming into the outside wall as his night came to an early end. He displayed his displeasure with Cummings under the caution period before retreating pitside.

As the field tried to separate itself from lap 40, Kyle Cummings bolted to the lead on the restart with Garrett Alberson briefly taking the 2nd spot down the backstretch. Culp however used an impressive move to retake the lead at the flag stand.

The next three laps found a three-wide battle for the lead between Culp, Alberson, and Cummings. Bad luck would bite Cummings on lap 44 though as contact with Josh Putnam sent him spinning to the infield.

The restart found Culp at the point with Alberson, Putnam, Eric Cooley, and Bub McCool, who went to the tail on lap 32, occupying the top five.

Culp again had his hands full on the restart as Alberson and Putnam briefly pushed him to 3rd before Culp overcame another outstanding battle to lead the field back to the flag stand.

The next several laps found Culp extending his advantage, but the battle behind him featured incredible racing. Putnam ran 2nd with Garrett Alberson, Chad Thrash, Bub McCool, and a rebounding Ray Moore all in pursuit. The battle for positions two through six found constant two and three wide battles with non-stop position swapping.

In the closing laps Putnam took 2nd for good with McCool, Ray Moore, and Chad Thrash settling into their top five finishing spots. Culp claimed the win by a little less than a second.

An elated Culp was quite honest in victory lane.

“(Brian) Rickman screwed up when he crashed me, because that just pissed me off, and I started racing a lot harder,” said Culp. “My front end was toed-out bad after that, and I couldn’t restart very well at all. I’m sure that made for some exciting racing for the fans, but man it was a handful for me.” The personable racer, concluded by saying, “I know that Bub (McCool) has a lot of fans here at Greenville, but hopefully tonight I made some.”

This concludes the 2015 season for Greenville Speedway. Keep your browser locked to www.GreenvilleSpeedway.net for information on the 2016 season.

Mississippi State Championship Challenge Series feature results at Hattiesburg Speedway in Hattiesburg, Mississippi (June 5th, 2015):

Friday's return to Hattiesburg Speedway sparked much excitement threw the grandstands.

Fans saw side-by-side racing, fast qualifying times and a couple accidents in the 40-lap feature -including one scary somersault flip by Chris Reid of Wiggins, Miss., in his No. c4 late model. Reid's car broke a rear end, sending him end-over-end and resulting in a very hard landing on his roof. Although his car was totaled, we are happy to report that Reid was okay after the accident.

David Gentry of Lewisburg, Tenn., returned to action in the MSCC Series and finished with a solid 7th-place finish at Hattiesburg.

Noticeably missing in action at Hattiesburg was Neil Baggett and Rick Rickman of Columbus, as Baggett was tying the knot out-of-town, but a nice surprise to the racetrack was Eddie Rickman, who ended up with a top 5 finish, in his No. 68 super late model.

Brian Rickman was the only other driver to wrestle away the lead from Bub McCool during the racing, leading on two different occasions during the span of the 40-lap feature -Brian was record third in the final tally.

Jeremy Broadus of Biloxi, Miss., had an impressive run in his No. 88, grabbing his best State Series finish of the season, taking fourth.

With McCool showing the way late in the race, Chad Thrash of Meridian, Miss., wage a battle with Brian Rickman. Once Thrash disposed of Rickman, he began chopping chunks out of McCool's advantage, as the lead dissipated from seconds-to-lengths in the closing laps among heavy traffic. McCool hung on for the win in conclusion, but Thrash clearly had a car that was just as fast, once the pair sliced-and-diced their way through the field.

(1) 57J -Bub McCool (18th career MSCCS victory and four-in-a-row),

Greenville, Mississippi (10/04/14) – Timothy Culp won his first-career Dirt Late Model feature at Greenville Speedway in 2011, and on Saturday night he won the richest of his young career with a $10,000 triumph in the 8th Annual Gumbo Nationals.

“This place has always been special to me since it’s the first place I won in a Super Late Model, but it hasn’t always been kind to me,” said an elated Culp in victory lane after successful completing nearly a dozen doughnuts in the infield after bagging the victory in the richest event in the history of the facility.  “Tonight we had no mechanical failures, no bad luck, and we did what few have been able to do and that’s beat Bub McCool at Greenville.”

Culp jumped to the lead at the drop of the green flag from his outside-front-row starting spot for the 75 lapper. He paced the opening circuits, which were plagued by a series of cautions. Bub McCool, Neil Baggett, Tyler Erb, and Ronnie Johnson gave chase during the opening laps, and McCool used a lap 8 restart to catapult into the lead.

Culp would remain persistent though, and on a lap 18 restart he used a strong run on the low side to retake the lead as McCool slipped as far back as the third spot before mounting a charge back to the lead three circuits later. Culp continued to use restarts to his advantage, and on a lap 30 restart he raced into the top spot.

The next several laps found Culp and McCool tap dancing around the high groove. Behind the lead duo incredible battles waged through the pack with three and four wide action with Baggett, Erb, Ronnie Johnson, and Morgan Bagley fighting tooth and nail for the third spot.

A lap 41 slide job in turn two sent McCool to the lead, but a lap 48 restart saw Culp rocketing back into the lead once again. The next ten laps found Culp and McCool waging war for the lead through lapped traffic. That all came to an end on lap 59, when McCool bounced off the turn 4 wall, resulting in a broken driveshaft, which ended his night.

Despite a late-race charge from Neil Baggett, Timothy Culp went on to power his Bennings Heat & Air #c8 Bob Pierce Super Late Model to the $10,000 victory. Neil Baggett, Chad Thrash, Tyler Erb, and Morgan Bagley rounded out the top five finishers.

A bevy of bonuses in memory of Greg Camponovo, who lost his life a week earlier in an accident on his family farm, were distributed throughout the payout.

With a ninth place finish David Breazeale claimed the 2014 MSCCS Super Late Model title.
