3M Back to School 150: Drew Herring posts 8th Late Model Stock Car win of season, takes over lead in title chase at South Boston 

SOUTH BOSTON, VA. — What a difference a week makes.

Last weekend, Drew Herring of Benson, N.C. wrecked his racecar and fell from atop the Barkhouser Late Model Stock Car Division point standings at South Boston Speedway.

Saturday night, Herring grabbed the pole position for the featured attraction of the 3M presents Back to School 150 and led every lap of the event to score his eighth triumph of the season.

The victory by Herring, coupled with a 14th-place finish by Jonathan Cash of Oxford, N.C., enabled Herring to erase an eight-point deficit and overtake Cash in the chase for the NASCAR Dodge Weekly Series championship at America's Hometown Track.

The race was extended to 154 laps in order for the event to finish with a two-lap green-flag shootout. The final caution period was set up when the car of Scott Turlington of Richmond, Va. spun around in turn two and collected the ride of Cash. Prior to the incident, Cash was running in fourth place and would have managed to maintain a slim edge in the point standings with a top four finish.

Nick Smith of Hampton, Va. posted a second-place run in the 19-car field after starting the event from the ninth slot. Smith, who enjoyed his best finish of the campaign, worked his way into the runner-up position with a pass of Adam Barker of Hurt, Va. on the 112th circuit.

Barker wound up finishing third in the unofficial rundown, while Eddie Johnson of Midlothian, Va., who posted a win last weekend, finished in fourth place.

Jon Denning of Springfield, N.J. motored to a fifth-place finish in the race and was followed by Rodney Cook of Reidsville, N.C. in the sixth-place spot. Cook was the final driver on the lead lap.

Jason Dickerson of Ruckersville, Va. was seventh at the close of the race, while Owen Miller of Emporia, Va. finished eighth. Brandon Dean of Lancaster, S.C. placed ninth, while Jonathan Bailey of Keysville, Va. rounded out the top 10 drivers. Dickerson, Miller, Dean and Bailey were all one lap down.

The race had plenty of fireworks earlier in the evening when the cars of NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series competitor Timothy Peters or Providence, N.C. and Speedy Faucette of Mebane, N.C. got together. Faucette had bumped Peters prior to the lap seven incident, but went spinning into the wall after contact from Peters, which brought out the yellow flag for the second time in the early stages of the race.

During the caution period, Faucette jumped on the hood of Peters' machine as he headed toward the pits. Faucette wound up 18th in the field and Peters, who parked his ride after the wreck, finished in the 17th position. Peters was assessed a stop and go penalty after the incident and, once he went a lap down to the field, opted to park for the night.
