Rick Rickman and series director Charles Thrash in victory lane.
What won the race: Third-starting Rick Rickman of Columbus, Miss., bested brother Brian Rickman for his second career MSCCS victory as he lapped all but four competitors. The winner took the lead from his brother on the 31st of 40 laps.
Quotable: "We are still learning this new Bob Pierce Late Model," winner Rick Rickman said. "It's only the third race in it so far."
Key notes: Rickman's previous MSCCS win came at hometown Columbus (Miss.) Speedway on Sept. 7, 2013. ... The 17-minute features ended at 10:30 p.m.; a single-caution slowed the action. ... Jimmy Cliburn topped his qualifying group, but was forced to scratch because of motor issues following the dash. ... Scott Dedwylder, Keith Miller and George Paul suffered troubles before or during qualifying. ... The Mississippi-based tour launched its 14-race campaign with the first of three 2014 appearances at Whynot; the series will return on June 21 and Aug. 2.
On the move: Former series champion David Breazeale climbed from 15th to finish seventh.
Winner's sponsors: Rick Rickman's Jay Dickens-powered Bob Pierce Race Car is sponsored by Goat Farm Posse, Advanced Logistics, Rickman Brothers Trucking, Advanced Racing Suspension and 1250 Package Store.
Points chase: Two-time and defending MSCCS points champion Chris Wall did not enter Saturday's season opener at Whynot, despite claiming three MSCCS victories at the track in 2014.
