Sellers looks to claim 2nd straight Virginia Late Model Triple Crown Oct. 5 at Martinsville Speedway

SOUTH BOSTON, VA. — Peyton Sellers has already locked up the 2014 South Boston Speedway NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model Stock Car Division championship. Now, he has his sights set on a repeat championship in the Virginia Late Model Triple Crown.

Once again this year, South Boston Speedway has teamed with Langley Speedway and Martinsville Speedway to offer the unique racing tripleheader.

The Virginia Late Model Triple Crown consists of the July 3 event at South Boston Speedway, the July 26 Hampton Heat 200 at Langley Speedway and the MDCU 300 on Oct. 5 at Martinsville Speedway.

Sellers, a former NASCAR Whelen All American Series national champion, reeled off five victories at America’s Hometown Track this season to secure his second South Boston Speedway track championship.

In the first two races of the Virginia Late Model Triple Crown, Sellers has posted finishes of third in the Dr. & Mrs. Maresca of St. Lawrence Radiology Presents Thunder Road Harley Davidson NASCAR Late Model 200 at South Boston Speedway on July 3, and fourth in the Hampton Heat 200 at Langley Speedway on July 26.

The third and final event in the Virginia Late Model Triple Crown will be the MDCU 300 at Martinsville Speedway on Sunday, Oct. 5.

Sellers will head into the MDCU 300 at Martinsville Speedway with a seven-point advantage over C.E. Falk in the Virginia Late Model Triple Crown standings.

Falk won the Hampton Heat 200 at Langley Speedway and finished 12th in the Dr. & Mrs. Maresca of St. Lawrence Radiology Presents Thunder Road Harley Davidson NASCAR Late Model 200 at South Boston Speedway.

In addition to the big-money purses at each of the three events, the driver with the highest point total among the three races will win the Virginia Late Model Triple Crown title and a $10,000 purse.
