South Boston, Va --

Philip Morris moved a step closer to a track championship at South Boston Speedway with a sweep of a pair of 75-lap races Saturday night.

Morris, of Ruckersville, took the lead from Bruce Anderson on lap 29 and led the rest of the way in winning the first 75-lapper.  Pole winner Matt Bowling of Ridgeway finished second, followed by Nathalie Sather of Fargo, N.D., Dennis Holdren of Roanoke and Ronald Hill of Rougemont, N.C. in a race that was delayed by caution flags five times and took 45 minutes to run.

Morris held off a strong late-race challenge from teammate and former NASCAR Whelen All-American champion Peyton Sellers to win race two from the pole.  Morris led the entire way in race two, but Sellers rallied through the field to second-place on lap 51 but couldn’t catch the race leader despite three cautions the final 24 laps.

Sellers settled for second-place, followed by Sather, Hill and Bowling in a race that took 42 minutes to run and was delayed by caution flags five times.

Morris averaged 43.054 MPH in race two.

 

McCarty takes home win in Limited Sportsman race.

Bobby McCarty of Summerfield, N.C., took home his second win of the year Saturday in the 50-lap Limited Sportsman race, passing Danny Willis Jr. of Cluster Springs on lap 13 and leading the rest of the way.

McCarty qualified on the pole with a time of 15.853 seconds and led the first nine laps before Willis passed for the lead.  McCarty returned the favor on lap 13 and led the rest of the way, with Austin Thaxton of Cluster Springs recording his best finish ever with a second-place effort.  Brian Pembelton of Amelia finished third, Blake Stallings of Danville finished fourth, and Willis, the points leader in the division, finished fifth.

McCarty averaged 49.546 MPH in a race that was delayed three times by caution flags and took 34 minutes to run.

 

Allred wins another Pure Stock race.

Joe Allred of Scottsburg set a second-straight Pure Stock qualifying record (18.027 seconds) and won his eighth race of the year in the Budweiser Pure Stock division.

Allred, starting mid-pack due to his having won the previous three races, passed Nathan Crews of Long Island on lap 19 and won by 0.749 seconds over Long Island driver Stuart Crews.  Randy Hupp of Halifax finished fourth and Bruce Mayo of Halifax finished fifth in a race that had three cautions and took 20 minutes to run.

Allred averaged 36.487 MPH in the win.

 

Johnson wins IMCA race.

Midlothian driver Chris Johnson won his second race of the year at South Boston in the 25-lap race for the IMCA-Style Modifieds.

Johnson, son of well-known race car driver Eddie Johnson, qualified on the pole with a time of 16.092 seconds and led the entire race, winning by 2.407 seconds over A.J. Winstead of Richmond.  Hunter Slayton of Richmond, Scott Lawrence of Elizabeth City, N.C. and Chris Hoylman of Dinwiddie rounded out the top-five finishers in a race that was caution free and took seven minutes to run.

 

Blair wins Legendary Flathead Ford race.

Bill Blair of Thomasville, N.C., started from the rear of the field but passed Gary Lewallen for the lead on lap 18 and won the 20-lap race for the Legendary Flathead Ford Racing Association.

Lewallen, of Trinity, N.C., finished second and was also the Sportsman winner, with Blair also winning the Modified Division.  Randy Apple of Reidsville, N.C., finished third and James Rogers of Ridgeway finished fifth in a caution free race.
