DAD's NIGHT OUT 150: Drew Herring pulls away from field to score 3rd Late Model Stock win of season at South Boston Speedway

SOUTH BOSTON, VA. — The caution flag may have been Drew Herring's best friend Saturday night at South Boston Speedway.

The yellow flag flew on lap 59 of the 150-lap Barkhouser Late Model Stock Car Division as Herring, who resides in Benson, N.C., and Jonathan Cash of Oxford, N.C. were waging a side-by-side battle for the lead spot on the track. That side-by-side battle, which saw Cash on the low side and Herring in the high groove had gone on for 15 circuits.

Under NASCAR rules, the race lineup for the restart of the event reverted to the last completed green flag lap. When Herring and Cash crossed the start-finish line on the 58th circuit, Herring had the lead spot by a nose. Therefore, he was placed in the lead spot for the green flag restart.

When the race went back green on lap 65, the yellow flag stayed on the shelf the rest of the way and Herring motored easily to his third triumph of the season with the aid of the long green flag run. The race was the featured attraction of the Dad's Night Out NASCAR Dodge Weekly Series race program.

Pole position winner Jon Denning of Springfield, N.J. slipped to third place in the first half of the event, but battled back past Cash on lap 131 and held on for a runner-up finish in the 22-car field.

The second-place run by Denning, coupled with a fifth-place finish by Owen Miller of Emporia, Va., who entered the night as the leader in the chase for the division point crown, enabled Denning to move atop the standings by a mere two points.

Eddie Johnson of Midlothian, Va. slipped past Cash with 17 laps remaining and motored to a third-place finish, while Cash settled for a fourth-place run after challenging for the lead early on. Miller placed fifth in the field and was the final driver on the lead lap when the checkered flag flew.

Jason Dickerson of Ruckersville, Va. secured a sixth-place run, while Nick Smith of Hampton, Va. placed seventh and Justin Johnson of Roxboro, N.C. was eighth in the field.

Rodney Cook of Reidsville, N.C. was ninth for the night, while David Quackenbush of Lorton, Va. rounded out the top 10 drivers. Dickerson, Smith, Justin Johnson, Cook and Quakenbush were all one lap down at the close of the race.
