Sellers scores fifth 5th win of season Friday night at SoBo, takes over point lead in Late Model Stock ranks

SOUTH BOSTON, VA. — Friday night racing is just fine with Peyton Sellers.

Sellers driver grabbed the lead on the opening circuit of the 150-lap race for the Barkhouser Late Model Stock Car Division Friday night at South Boston Speedway and led all the way to the checkered flag.

The win was the fifth of the season for Sellers, who entered the night second in the NASCAR Dodge Weekly Series championship chase at the four-tenths mile asphalt oval. When the night ended, however, Sellers was atop the point battle in the division.

Sellers' victory, coupled with a 16th-place run by Drew Herring of Benson, N.C., enabled the Danville, Va. driver to overtake the teenager, who has scored three wins for the season.

Sellers managed to lead every lap, but he had his hands full with Durham, N.C. driver David Triplett, Jr. for much of the race. Triplett started third in the 22-car field and shot into the second-place position on the 25th circuit.

Jerame Donley, who was making his first appearance of the season at South Boston Speedway, qualified on the pole with a time trial run of 15.701 seconds and proceeded to score a third-place finish in the unofficial rundown for the event.

Scott Worley of Long Island, Va. managed a fourth-place run in the race, while Justin Johnson of Roxboro, N.C. finished fifth.

Jonathan Cash of Oxford, N.C. was sixth for the night, while Brandon Butler of Petersburg, Va. placed seventh and Chris Hopkins of Petersburg, Va. was eighth.

Ninth place in the event went to Ryan Gray of Raleigh, N.C., while Wayne Ramsey of Amherst, Va. rounded out the top 10 drivers in the field.

Three caution periods slowed the field for the night. Herring, who started 12th in the event, saw his hopes for a victory vanish during the second caution when he and 11th-place starter Rodney Cook got together in the frontstretch, heavily damaging both rides.
