Hollingsworth Wins Magnolia "Governor's Cup"

COLUMBUS, Miss. - June 5. Columbus's "west side" track, Magnolia Motor Speedway, once again hosted its annual "Governor's Cup", and young second generation Alabama racer Ronny Lee Hollingsworth drove to a dominant win in the local classic.

It was only during the later laps, however, that the "dominant" claim could be made, as Hollingsworth endured a fierce duel with local favorite Rick Rickman throughout most of the race.  The battle raged on again and off again until late race traffic allowed Rickman to reel in the leader and lay claim to the top spot just past the midpoint. Rickman's #86 had begun to put some space between himself and Hollingsworth when a late caution flew.

Rickman experienced mechanical problems at that point and pitted his ailing #86 car.  Hollingsworth retook the lead and race nearly unchallenged to the win over Arkansas veteran Stacy Talor, with Neil Baggett driving from midfield to third, and Scott Dedwylder blasting from his 20th starting spot to fourth. Grabbing his eighth top five in nine starts so far this season, Memphis area driver Dane Dacus followed.
