Web posted by Tim Chandler

South Boston, Va --

Jeb Burton scored his first career South Boston Speedway win in the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Late Model Stock Car Division here Saturday night with his victory in the NASCAR Whelen Late Model 150.

Burton took the lead on the seventh lap after a three-lap side-by-side battle for the lead with former South Boston Speedway and NASCAR national champion Peyton Sellers and led the rest of the way to pick up the win.

The Halifax, Va. resident had only one challenge after the race passed the halfway mark. That came on the restart on lap 86 that followed the race’s lone caution period. Pole winner Josh Oakley of Rougemont, N.C. was able to stick with Burton for a couple of laps, but once the field got stretched out single-file, it was all Burton the rest of the way.

With the race going green for the final 64 laps, Burton sped away to a 2.601-second win over Oakley, with Danville, Va. resident Sellers, track points leader Matt Bowling of Ridgeway, Va. and Dennis Holdren of Roanoke, Va. rounding out the top five finishers.

Ronald Hill of Rougemont, N.C., Bruce Anderson of South Boston, Va., Austin Thaxton of South Boston, Va., Joshua VanWinkle of Morehead City, N.C. and Trey Crews of Halifax, Va. completed the top ten finishers.

Burton averaged 81.982 mph in the race that took 43 minutes and 54 seconds to complete.

            McCarty Sweeps Limited Sportsman Division Twinbill

Bobby McCarty of Summerfield, N.C. ran his season win total in the Limited Sportsman Division at South Boston Speedway to six victories Saturday night by sweeping the night’s pair of 50-lap races.

McCarty, who entered the night with a five-point lead in the division point standings, drove to a 1.591-second over defending division champion Danny Willis, Jr. of Cluster Springs, Va. in the caution-free first race, with Mike Jones of South Boston, Va., Tommy Peregoy of Red Oak, Va. and Blake Stallings of Danville, Va. rounding out the top five finishers.

Due to an inverted start, McCarty started sixth in the nightcap. He moved quickly through the field and passed Stallings for the lead on lap 17. Once in front, McCarty led the rest of the race and drove to a 4.346-second win over Peregoy, with Jones, Michael Maresca of Hannawah Falls, N.Y. and Stallings completing the top five finishers.

            Nathan Crews Takes Pure Stock Division Win

Nathan Crews of Long Island, Va. scored his first win of the season Saturday night, edging Trey Crews of Halifax, Va. by .733-second in a green-white-checkered dash to the finish in the night’s 30-lap race for the Budweiser Pure Stock Division.

Defending division champion Joe Allred, III of Scottsburg, Va., Randy Hupp of Halifax, Va. and Daniel Crews of Long Island, Va. rounded out the top five finishers in the race that was slowed by a pair of caution flags.

            Rudy, Edgerton Split MAD Modified Twinbill

A pair of first-time South Boston Speedway winners emerged in Victory Lane following Saturday night’s pair of 25-lap races for the MAD Modified Division. (Modified Affordable Division).

Mike Rudy of Hampton, Va. took the lead from Joe Scarbrough of Charles City, Va. on the tenth lap and drove to an .882-second win over Scarbrough in the first 25-lap race. Robert Conner of Colonial Heights, Va. finished third.

In the nightcap, Lauren Edgerton of South Chesterfield, Va. started on the pole and led the entire race, edging Rudy, who started sixth due to an inverted start, by a slim .229-second margin.

With the win, Edgerton became the first female driver to win a race at South Boston Speedway in at least 10 years. Scarbrough finished third.

Next Race At South Boston Speedway
