Morris Takes Second SBS Win

SOUTH BOSTON, VA. - Defending NASCAR national champion Philip Morris of Ruckersville, Va. claimed his second win of the season here Saturday night at South Boston Speedway.

Morris held off Justin Johnson of Durham, N.C in a two-lap green flag sprint to the finish to win the NASCAR Whelen All-American Easter Bunny 150 Late Model Stock Car Division race.

His margin of victory was 1.168 seconds.

The win was the second for Morris in as many starts at South Boston Speedway this season and his third triumph for the season.

Eddie Johnson of Midlothian, Va. finished third with Lee Pulliam of Semora, N.C. and Josh Oakley of Rougemont, N.C. rounding out the top five finishers.

Jonathan Bailey of Keysville, Va., Dane Rudolph of Wamberal, Australia, Jonathan Cash of Oxford, N.C. Kenny Forbes of Bullock, N.C. and Dustin Storm of Huntingtown, Md. rounded out the top ten finishers.

Nick Smith of Hampton pressured Morris for much of the race. However, Smiths bid for the win came to an unexpected end when the car driven by Smith and the car driven by Dude Gibbs of Seaford, Va. got together with six laps to go.

That mishap also triggered a spin on the backstretch by Storm, who was running third at the time, and Tim George Jr.

The race was restarted on lap 150 for a two-lap sprint to the finish with Justin Johnson and Eddie Johnson moving into the top three. Neither was able to make a serious bid against Morris, who held on to take the win.

Morris averaged 70.118 mph in the race that was slowed by three caution periods. The race took 52 minutes and 13 seconds to complete.

Peregoy, Snow Split Wins In Limited Sportsman Twinbill

Two new winners emerged in the Limited Sportsman Division as Tommy Peregoy of Red Oak, Va. and Justin Snow of Danville, Va. took wins in the pair of 50-lap Limited Sportsman Division races.

Peregoy won the first 50-lap race, first fending off challenges from 16-year-old Jeb Burton of Halifax, Va. before having to fight off Brian Pembelton of Amelia, Va. and Danny Willis Jr. of Cluster Springs, Va. over the last four laps to seal the win.

At the end, Peregoy edged Pembelton by .133 second with Willis, Burton and Brian Cole of Roxboro, N.C. rounding out the top five finishers.

With the top five qualifiers for the second race being inverted for the start, Snow and Willis occupied the top two spots for the start of the nightcap. Willis led the first five laps before Snow squeezed past Willis to grab the lead on the sixth lap.

Pembelton, who started fourth, took second place from Willis with 10 laps to go. He tried to make a run at Snow, but Snow was able to take the win by a 1.685-second margin.

Willis finished third with Brandon Gdovic of Yorktown, Va. and Peregoy rounding out the top five finishers. Burton, who started ninth, finished sixth.
