Talented Field of Competitors Look to Tame the Gumbo for $10k this Weekend

by Ben Shelton
Greenville, Mississippi (September 29) In less than two days the 9th Annual Gumbo Nationals will come to life at Greenville Speedway (Greenville, Mississippi) on October 1st-3rd, 2015.

A beautiful weather forecast combines with a great field of competitors will make this a must-see event in 2015.

In 2014 Louisiana native, Timothy Culp claimed the biggest win of his young career by scoring the $10,000 payday. Culp will return this year in a team car to Tyler Erb as he looks to repeat. The going will not be easy for the attempt at back-to-back wins as a talented field of drivers are looking to stand in his way. Expected entrants include Bub McCool, Billy Moyer Jr., Rick Rickman, Brian Rickman, Chad Thrash, Neil Baggett, Jack Sullivan, Tyler Erb, Eric Cooley, Doug Showah, Ronny Lee Hollingsworth, Garrett Alberson, Ray Moore, Ross Camponovo, Dane Dacus, Ashley Newman, Kyle Beard, B.J. Robinson, Allen Tippen, and a host of others.

For 2015 the Super Late Model division will battle a total payout in excess of $40,000 as the Mississippi State Championship Challenge Series (MSCCS) Super Late Model thunders into town. The finale will be headlined by a $10,000-to-win/$1,000-to-start, 75 lap feature, which again matches the richest event in the facilities history. All Super Late Models will be required to run an 8" spoiler.
