Doggett eyes 300-lapper amid string of impressive runs at South Boston
Oct 18, 2011 - updated Oct 18th, 2011 7:10am

Ruther Glen, Va --

For Immediate Release: October 18, 2011

Taylor Doggett is on a streak of impressive third-place finishes at South Boston Speedway and now, with leaves turning and temperatures cooling in southeast Virginia, the 18-year-old late model racer is facing one of the biggest races of his career this Saturday at the famed four-tenths-mile oval.

 

South Boston will open its doors Saturday for the final time in 2011 for the NASCAR Whelen Late Model 300 Presented by Danville Toyota. Doggett, who’s never run a 300-lap race, enters the event as a surprising up-and-comer in SoBo late model racing after reeling off a trio of third-place finishes in the last two weekends of racing at the track.

 

Doggett finished third to multi-time NASCAR champion Philip Morris and Bruce Anderson in both twin 75-lap PASS Super Late Model mains on August 20 in first race behind the wheel of the Dean Motorsports No. 20. Doggett returned to South Boston on September 3 and netted another third-place run to Morris and this month’s Martinsville Virginia is for Racing Lovers 300 winner Lee Pulliam.

 

The head-turning drives have Doggett, a late model rookie, a perennial favorite for a feature win this Saturday.

 

“The last couple months have been a career booster, for sure,” Doggett said this past weekend. “We’ve made so many strides in the right direction. We’ve come together with Jim Dean of Dean Motorsports and with the help of H.C. and Peyton Sellers and their group, we have a real shot at the win this weekend at South Boston.”

 

Doggett began the season with FDJ Motorsports and won his first late model main over the summer in a 75-lap race at North Carolina’s Orange County Speedway. In August, the charismatic, well-spoken racer moved to Dean Motorsports to run as a teammate to Morris, one of the most accomplished late model racers of all time.

 

The move to Dean was a career move as Doggett continues to stride toward the goal of racing in the highest levels of NASCAR.

 

“We reached out to Jim (Dean) and tried to make something happen,” Doggett explained. “With Philip’s (Morris) track record we knew it would be a good move. We feel like now is our time to shine, and we made the move and so far it’s worked out extremely well.

 

“There are good things going on. I’m aiming to move up. We’re always looking for sponsorship. We want to move to K&N East or ARCA and race for a championship,” Doggett added.

 

Dean, a respected late model car owner who’s credited in racing circles for propelling Denny Hamlin to the big time, believes Doggett has what it takes to compete with the best in the sport.

 

“I’m definitely a strong supporter of Taylor and what he can do in the seat,” Dean said. “He’s so smooth on the gas and he’s proven he can drive a loose racecar and I trust the feedback he’s giving me. I think he can win in series above him, whether it’s K&N or ARCA or something else, and I think he’s ready to do it right now. This weekend will be one of the biggest, best fields of the year at South Boston and I think he’s an absolute favorite to win. He’s already shown he belongs and he’s been very impressive.”

 

Doggett says he’s ready for the big 300-lapper and anticipates another strong showing with the Dean group.

 

“I feel like we’ve made some gains on the setup in the meetings we’ve had the last few weeks. I’m staying in shape and preparing for the longer distance race. We’re going for the win and again, we couldn’t do it without the help of some great people. A big thanks, as always, to McDonald’s and the entire Washington family, Dean Motorsports, Sellers Racing, my family and all my supporters,” Doggett said.

 

The weekend of racing kicks off Friday at South Boston with qualifying slated to begin at 4 p.m. The 300-lap event will start at 3 p.m. Saturday after heat races and pre-race activities.
