MISS UTILITY 150: Drew Herring locks up South Boston Speedway's Late Model Stock Car crown with 9th triumph of season

SOUTH BOSTON, VA. — Drew Herring of Benson, N.C. entered Saturday night's racing action at South Boston Speedway with a slim eight-point lead in the Barkhouser Late Model Stock Car Division standings.

Herring left America's Hometown Track at the end of the evening with his ninth NASCAR Dodge Weekly Series victory of the season and the track championship. The 150-lap race was the featured attraction of the Miss Utility 150.

Herring started the event from the third spot in the 13-car field, but took the lead in the early stages when pole position winner Jon Denning of Springfield, N.J. tapped race leader Jonathan Cash of Oxford, N.C. in the rear to send the two cars spinning.

When the race went back under the green flag, Herring had the lead position, a spot he would not relinquish despite constant pressure from Nick Smith of Hampton, Va., who wound up second at the close of the race.

Owen Miller of Emporia, Va. motored to a third-place finish in the field and wound up second in the final points standings.

Two-time winner Eddie Johnson of Midlothian, Va. posted a fourth-place run in the race, while Cash recovered from his early-race incident to finish in the fifth-place position. Johnson wound up third in the final point standings, while Cash was fourth in the championship chase.

Adam Barker of Hurt, Va. finished in sixth place in the race and was followed by David Quackenbush of Lorton, Va. in seventh. Quackenbush was the final driver on the lead lap.

Rodney Sawyer of Ridgeway, Va. posted an eighth-place run in his first racing action on the four-tenths mile asphalt oval since the 2001 campaign. Sawyer was one lap down at the close of the race.

Keven Wood of Stuart, Va. finished in ninth place, three laps down, while Richard Storm of Partlow, Va. rounded out the top 10 competitors.
