McCool’’s most recent victory at Whynot came in the track’s 2013 season opener on Saturday night. He tuned up for the speedway’’s historic World of Outlaws show by capturing a Mississippi State Championship Challenge Series event.

“We’’ve had quite a bit of success there over the years,”” said McCool, who has earned four of his 10 career MSCCS victories at Whynot. “”I always like racing there. It’’s kind of a fast little deal, a big circle where you can race two- or three-wide – and sometimes even four-wide. Last year in the (season-ending) Fall Classic we ran three-wide for the lead for 50 laps.

““I would say it’s the best racing in Mississippi,”” he added. “”Back years ago it used to be follow-the-leader racing a lot, but (owner) Rodney (Wing) has just totally changed that place for the better since he took it over. He’’s done a real good job with the surface.””

McCool, who won the 2012 WoO LMS Rookie of the Year award with one of the best seasons a first-year traveler has ever enjoyed (one win, nine top-five and 15 top-10 finishes), will enter Whynot’’s World of Outlaws program riding a wave of momentum. He struggled for most of the tour’s season-opening eight-race swing through Georgia and Florida last month, failing to register a single top-five finish, but came alive over the past two weeks, preceding his Whynot score with a $10,000 triumph in the unsanctioned Pelican 100 on March 9 at Ark-La-Tex Speedway in Vivian, La.
