Josh Putnam Treks to Magnolia Motor Speedway
Josh Putnam rolled into Magnolia Motor Speedway (Columbus, Miss.) on Thursday night for the opening round of a three-race swing at the 3/8-mile oval.
Thursday's action featured the make-up event from the COMP Cams Super Dirt Series (CCSDS) slate that was rained out on September 4. Thirty-seven entries registered for battle, and after qualifying second fastest in his group, Josh won his heat race to earn the third-starting spot for the feature.
He would slip back to a sixth-place finish at the checkered flag.
On Friday night, Josh would battle the handle throughout the night in the $4,000-to-win program. Struggles in qualifying and heat race action resulted in the team making the decision to scratch from the B-Main to get ready for Saturday's finale.
The team entered the final night of the three-race weekend on Saturday night as a $12,000 winner's prize was posted for the Super Late Model division. After qualifying sixth fastest in his time trial group, Josh started and finished third in his heat race.
Rolling off the feature grid from the 11th-starting spot, Putnam climbed six spots to finish fifth behind Cade Dillard, Wil Herrington, Billy Moyer Jr., and Kyle Beard.
