Sellers roars to 2nd straight Late Model Stock Car victory Saturday night at South Boston Speedway

SOUTH BOSTON, VA. Peyton Sellers made it two wins in a row Saturday night at South Boston Speedway.

Sellers led every circuit of the 150-lap Barkhouser Late Model Stock Car Division race after beginning the event from the pole position with a qualifying run of 15.746 seconds around the four-tenths mile asphalt oval.

The Late Model Stock Car race was the featured attraction of the Craftsman Night at the Races program.

The victory was the seventh of the season for Sellers, who resides in Danville, Va., and boosted him 30 points ahead of Drew Herring of Benson, N.C. in the fight for the Late Model Stock Car championship at America's Hometown Track.

Sellers, who has 10 overall victories for the season, is also the leader in the NASCAR Dodge Weekly Series Division I standings and has hopes of claiming the national crown as well.

Wayne Ramsey of Amherst, Va. qualified on the outside pole, slipped back a bit early on, but battled back to gain a second-place finish in the 24-car field.

Herring motored to a third-place finish after starting in the fourth slot and David Triplett, Jr. of Durham, N.C. garnered the fourth spot ahead of fifth-place finishing Scott Worley of Long Island, Va.

Jonathan Cash of Oxford, N.C. motored to a sixth-place performance in the race and was followed in the seventh position by Justin Johnson of Roxboro, N.C.

Brandon Butler of Petersburg, Va. finished eighth for the night and was followed in the top 10 by David Quackenbush of Lorton, Va. in ninth and Clay Campbell of Martinsville, Va. in the 10th position.

Sellers had his hands full in the early stages of the race as third-starting Deac McCaskill of Raleigh, N.C. grabbed the second spot from the outset. McCaskill drove the high line and fought Sellers side-by-side on several laps before developing a tire rub and heading to the pits after 42 circuits.

Sellers had some challenges from Ramsey after that point, but pulled away down the stretch to win by nearly three-fourths of a straightaway.

The race was slowed by just two caution periods, one on lap 17 for a spin involving Terri Williams, Tim Pinion and Ryan Rhodes and another for a spin involving Triplett and Jason Dickerson on the 87th circuit. Dickerson and Triplett were fighting for fourth place on the track at the time of the caution.

David Triplett, Jr. of Durham, N.C. won the pole position for the race with a qualifying lap of 15.901 seconds. Triplett, however, was involved in the first of four caution periods for the race on lap 30 when he spun after receiving contact from Jason Dickerson of Ruckersville, Va.

Bailey has successful night bounty hunting in 50-lap Limited Sportsman Division race

Jonathan Bailey of Keysville, Va. started third, got involved in a lap 10 caution period, but still managed to score a victory in the 50-lap race for the Limited Sportsman Division.

The victory, the sixth of the season for Bailey, snapped a four-race win streak by runner-up finisher Justin Snow of Danville, Va. In addition to securing a first-place check, Bailey picked up a $500 bounty for ending Snow's win streak. The victory by Bailey also put Snow, a seven-time winner, and Bailey into a first-place tie in the division point standings.

Charles Barnes of Chase City, Va. finished third in the 11-car field and was followed by Bill Moshenek of Providence, N.C. in fourth place and Eddie DeClue of Butner, N.C. in the fifth position.

Bailey and outside pole sitter Tommy Peregoy of Red Oak, Va. were fighting for second place on lap 10 when the two got together and Peregoy wound up hitting the outside retaining wall. The race was slowed by only one other caution period.

Bailey moved past Snow and into the lead for good on the 18th circuit of the race after the two had motored side-side for a pair of laps.
