Johnny Stokes didn't intend to get himself a birthday present Sunday.
Richard Parker used to live in the New Hope community, so he knows about the generosity and the hospitality in the Golden Triangle.
Chloe Bibby sounds like Vic Schaefer's kind of player.
Columbus native and former Ole Miss football coach Billy Brewer was named Monday one of six members of the Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame's Class of 2018.
Bill Sudduth has had more successful seasons. Sudduth has won four track championships since he began racing in 1984, all of which came in some incarnation of Pro-Street/Factory Stock racing. One year, Sudduth won 19-straight feature races.
Kyle Shaw hadn't won a NeSmith Late Model race in three years. The Millport, Alabama, native picked the best possible time to break that slump.
Aliceville High School clinched a spot in the Alabama High School Athletic Association (AHSAA) Class 2A playoffs with a 46-18 prep football win over Hatch in Class 2A, Region 4 play Friday night.
Hunter Logan and Cohen Trolio take their golf seriously. As two of the most accomplished junior players in the state of Mississippi, Logan and Trolio have walked the best courses and competed against the toughest competitors. That's why it didn't faze Logan or Trolio that they were the only juniors competing Thursday in the United States Golf Association (USGA) Men's Four-Ball Qualifier at Laurel Country Club.
With less than five laps left in the race to decide the Mississippi Street Stock Series points title, Lee Ray's bid to repeat as champion appeared dashed after he spun in turns three and four following contact with Eddie Rickman.
No one knows how the oddsmakers in Las Vegas determine their betting lines. There are countless variables that change by the day, and sometimes by the hour.
It wasn't a win, but it was clear how much a top-three finish meant to David Breazeale. The longtime Super Late Model racer fought back tears and struggled to find the words after exiting his car to a chorus of cheers following the 2016 Cotton Pickin' 100 at Magnolia Motor Speedway.
Choices isn't just another word to Adrian Branch. To convey the impact of that word, Branch uses more colorful ones -- like sashaying and profilin' -- and eye-catching objects -- like his $10,000 1987 NBA championship ring from his stint with the Los Angeles Lakers -- to hold the attention of the students assembled in the Columbus High School gymnasium.
There's something special about Spencer Hughes' right foot. Car owner Randy Thompson feels Hughes' right foot is his greatest attribute. In just his third Super Late Model race Saturday at Magnolia Motor Speedway, Hughes showed again why Thompson selected him pilot his car.
STARKVILLE -- Hunters Creek Village, Texas, was one of the lucky ones. On the western outskirts of Houston, the village had recently installed new drainage systems, as reported by The Houston Chronicle, and appeared to be positioned well geographically to avoid the effects of Hurricane Harvey.
For Spencer Hughes, his Street Stock car is "home."
There was a time when Eddie Rickman didn't know what he was doing with a race car. In the 1960s and '70s, before racing technology boomed and before Rickman became one of Mississippi's best Super Late Model drivers, he was still figuring out how to make a car go fast and handle better.
It doesn't matter what kind of car David Breazeale brings to the track. He's a favorite to win wherever he goes. Breazeale debuted a new Rocket XR-1 car Saturday for the Mississippi State Championship Challenge Series Super Late Model race at Magnolia Motor Speedway. He had one testing session Friday and didn't make any significant adjustments before Saturday's feature.
It takes a lot of practice, a lot of luck, and a really good car to win a race. Ellie Hughes has been racing since she was 8 years old. She started out in go-karts, worked her way up to Hot Shots, and has been racing Factory Stocks for the last two years. The 16-year-old has had to rebuild cars after wrecks, but after her latest crash totaled her car at Whynot Motorsports Park a few weeks ago, Hughes' racing experience was tested unlike any other period.
