Sellers will try to stay atop SoBo and NASCAR Division I standings Saturday night...Justin Snow has a $500 bounty
SOUTH BOSTON, VA. Peyton Sellers will try to maintain his lead in the Barkhouser Late Model Stock Car Division and the NASCAR Dodge Weekly Series Division I standings Saturday night when South Boston Speedway returns to action for the running of the Craftsman Night at the Races.
The Late Model Stock Car Division competitors will highlight the five-event Craftsman Night at the Race program. Gates will open at 5 p.m. and the first event of the evening will receive the green flag at 7 p.m.
While action has been exciting and competitive in the Late Model ranks at America's Hometown Track throughout the 2005 season, Sellers has managed to score six victories at the four-tenths mile oval and gain a 26-point cushion over second-place Drew Herring.
Jonathon Cash and Ryan Rhodes are tied for third place in the Late Model standings, while Owen Miller sits in the fifth spot, eight points behind the third-place tie.
Those drivers, plus recent Late Model winners Wayne Ramsey, Scott Worley, Justin Johnson and Deac McCaskill are all expected to be on hand for Saturday night's racing action.
When the Limited Sportsman drivers hit the asphalt for racing action Saturday, seven-time winner Justin Snow will carry a four-race win streak with him. He will also have a $500 bounty hanging over his head. Snow leads five-time winner Jonathan Bailey by only two points in the chase for the division crown.
Rounding out the Craftsman Night at the Races program will be events for the Virginia Army National Guard Pure Stock Division drivers, the Grand Sportsman Division and the touring Legendary Flathead Series.
Chuck Watkins leads the Pure Stock standings by 10 points, while Lee Anderson is second only four points ahead of third place Nick Igdalsky.
Pit gates will open Saturday at 1 p.m. and practice for all divisions will be held from 2:15 p.m. until 3:45 p.m. and qualifying time trials will get the green flag at 5 p.m.
Adult admission for the race will be $8 up to 6:30 p.m. and $10 after that. Youth, ages 10-15, will be admitted for $5 and children under the age of 10 will be admitted free with a paid adult.
