Magnolia State Cotton Pickin’ 100 Weekend Rescheduled For Nov. 12-14

Due to overwhelming feedback from fans and racers, officials with Magnolia Motor Speedway have made the decision to move forward with a rescheduled date for the 2020 edition of the Magnolia State Cotton Pickin’ 100. Originally slated for September 24-26, but preempted by Tropical Storm Beta, the mega event has been rescheduled for November 12-14.

“It never used to seem to be that way, but the past few years November has been a pretty dry and mild month in this area, so we figured it was a good idea to reschedule the Magnolia State Cotton Pickin’ 100 for November 12-14. Ever since we had to postpone the event our phones have been blowing up with calls from fans and racers asking when the reschedule date will be. It seems like everybody is hungrier than ever for racing this year, and as long as Mother Nature doesn’t throw us another curveball we are going to give them more racing.” said track promoter, Johnny Stokes.

The 2020 Magnolia State Cotton Pickin’ 100 will be held on Thursday-Saturday, November 12-14.
