Key notes: Baggett, a seven-time winner on the Mississippi State Championship Challenge Series, was the winner of the March 15 Southern All Stars opener at Southern Raceway in Milton, Fla. … Alberson, who serves as crew chief for Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series contender Earl Pearson Jr., made his seventh start of the season. … Alberson missed prelims because the team locked their keys in the hauler; a locksmith came and allowed him to tag the tail of the feature. ... Wesley Greene scratched and picked up the Hard Luck award. ... Columbus Speedway announced last week that a $2,525 bonus had been added to the winner's purse, with the winner of Friday's Chris Myers Memorial taking home $3,525. ...
