Ramsey Takes SBS Win

SOUTH BOSTON, VA. - Defending South Boston Speedway champion Wayne Ramsey of Amherst, Va. has not had many opportunities to race this season.

But he took advantage of the opportunity to compete in Saturday night's Charles Anderson Lawn Care 150 racing program in a big way.

Driving a Ford owned by Robert and Charlie Long, Ramsey pulled away from his challengers following the race's final caution period and drove to a 1.218-second win over David Quackenbush of Lorton, Va. in the 150-lap race for the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Late Model Stock Car Division.

The win was Ramsey's first of the season and the victory made him South Boston Speedway's sixth different winner in the season's first eight races.

Nick Smith of Hampton, Va. finished third with pole winner Lee Pulliam of Semora, N.C. and Deac McCaskill of Raleigh, N.C. rounding out the top five finishers.

Ty Dillon of Welcome, N.C., Michael Hardin Pomfret, Md., Laura Hayes of Wilton, Cal., Justin Johnson of Durham, N.C. and Rick Gdovic of Yorktown, Va. completed the top ten finishers.

Defending NASCAR national champion Philip Morris of Ruckersville, Va. started on the outside pole and led the first 57 laps. He was sidelined in a mishap that occurred on lap 57 as he and Smith were battling for the lead.

Ramsey, who was running third at the time, inherited the lead and fended off challengers the rest of the way.

Ramsey averaged 67.009 mph in the race that was slowed by five caution periods.
