When a group of friends formed the co-ed flag football team Foot Clan at Mississippi State in 2015, they didn't know what was in store. After going through the 2015 season without a quarterback, Foot Clan stuck together and was ready for the 2016 campaign. After winning the co-ed championship at MSU, Foot Clan won a National Intramural-Recreational Sports Association (NIRSA) Regional championship on Dec. 3-4 in Hattiesburg on the campus of Southern Mississippi. Foot Clan rode the momentum and lost 19-6 to Valdosta State's P-Rex squad in the NIRSA Flag Football National Championship game Jan. 8 in Pensacola, Florida.

Riley Hickman's "gamble" paid off. The Cleveland, Tennessee, native has plenty of experience racing at Magnolia Motor Speedway, where track conditions are relatively consistent.

Hickman chose hard compound tires all the way around, while the majority of the field, including second-place finisher Chase Washington, chose soft tires. The result was a smooth run through all 100 laps, a win, and $10,000 for Hickman.

It takes a village ... to restore a racetrack. Rod Taylor can't remember everyone who has shown up at Columbus Speedway to help paint, clean, or repair in an effort to prepare the track for its race Saturday, the first of the season after its indefinite closure earlier this year.

Brian Rickman has had a familiar mantra toward the end of each Mississippi State Championship Challenge Series season: avoid bad luck. In recent seasons, one bad finish, whether caused by mechanical failure or a driver error on the track, has wiped out his chances to clinch the points title and join brother Rick and father Eddie as State Series champions.
