October 11th, 2014 - C-eight Motorsports traveled to Magnolia Motor Speedway (Columbus, Mississippi) over the weekend for the 11th Annual Magnolia State Cotton Pickin' 100, which posted a $20,000 top prize at the state-of-the-art oval.

On Friday evening a talented field of seventy-two competitors registered for battle, and struggles in time trials earned Timothy the ninth starting spot for his heat race. He would only manage a ninth place finish, which relegated him to a b-main on Saturday evening.

Scheduled to start deep in his b-main, the team made the decision to scratch from the balance of the program, bringing Culp's weekend to a disappointing early end.

A talent-laden field of 50 Super Late Models converged on the gumbo oval, and Culp started his outing by posting the fastest lap in Group B of time trials. He later stormed to a heat race win, which positioned him starting on the outside-front-row of Saturday's 75 lap finale, alongside Neil Baggett.

In the main event, Culp battled the grueling track conditions of the 1/4 mile oval, as well as rivals Bub McCool and Neil Baggett. With Culp taking the lead on the opening lap, he and McCool swapped the top spot six time before McCool slowed to bring out the caution on lap 59 with a broken driveshaft. From there, Culp denied a late race charge from Baggett to score the richest victory of his young career aboard his #C8 Benning's Heat & Air/Carrier/Pierce Race Cars Super Late Model.

"I'm tickled to get ... and I'm just happy to beat Bub McCool finally at Greenville Speedway," Culp said after the race. Culp finished second to McCool in an MSCCS event at Greenville Speedway in June of this year.

"I knew if I could just keep getting him on them restarts (each time Culp passed McCool for the lead was on a restart) I could kind of get in his heat a little bit, and if I could ever catch lapped traffic in the lead I figured we'd have it. It just played into my hand there," Culp added.

"It was tough out there," Culp said following his $10,000 triumph. "The track was very demanding on car and driver, that was defiantly the hardest I've ever drove physically and mentally."

Baggett finished just 0.463 seconds behind Culp in the runner-up position, while Chad Thrash, Tyler Erb and Morgan Bagley rounded out the top five finishers.
