As told by Mike Kimble: Chicken McCombs was the man who prepared the Legendary Cars #248 and #631. His cars may have won more races over their “hay-day” than any other in Mississippi history. Any time the #248 pulled into the pits, whether at Memphis, Jackson, Mobile or Pensacola, the other teams knew they were racing for second place. Although several drivers won in his cars, Chicken McCombs will always be tied to one driver in Mississippi racing lore; Ival Cooper.
