Neil Baggett Bests Opening Night CCSDS Competition at the Gumbo Nationals
14th Annual Gumbo Nationals Finale Set for Saturday Night

October 2, 2020 - Neil Baggett narrowly escaped near disaster in the closing laps of Friday night’s 14th annual Gumbo Nationals opener to pocket the $4,000 winner’s check with the COMP Cams Super Dirt Series presented by Lucas Oil.

After leading throughout the 30 lapper Baggett as well as second running, Brian Rickman were collected in a turn-two melee with lapped traffic with just six laps remaining. Baggett and Rickman each spun to miss the tangled lapped cars, and as a result were reinstated to their running positions.

Holding off a rapidly closing Rickman in the six-lap dash to the checkers, Neil Baggett picked up the $4,000 victory, which marked his first CCSDS triumph of the 2020 campaign.

Rickman, Billy Moyer (started sixth), Drew Armstrong (started ninth) and B.J. Robinson (started eleventh) rounded out the Top-5 finishers.

Weekend action wraps for the CCSDS contingent wraps up on Saturday night at Greenville Speedway (Greenville, Mississippi) with a complete $8,000-to-win / $500-to-start event as the 14th annual Gumbo Nationals draws to a close.

The CCSDS entry fee each night is $100.
