PULLIAM SCORES BIG IN “200” AT SBS

SouthBoston, VA --

 

Lee Pulliam continued his domination of South Boston Speedway’s mid-summer Fourth of July racing extravaganza here Thursday night, winning the Dr. and Mrs. Maresca of St. Lawrence Radiology Presents Sellers Construction 200.

Pulliam took the lead from race leader Josh Oakley of Rougemont, N.C. on lap 165 and drove away from the field, edging eventual runner-up Matt Bowling of Ridgeway, Va. by  4.55 seconds in the 200-lap NASCAR Whelen All American Series Late Model Stock Car Division race.

The win, Pulliam’s tenth of the season at South Boston Speedway, was worth $5,000. This marks the third season in a row that Pulliam has won South Boston Speedway’s pre-Fourth of July race. Due to a rainout of the race on Wednesday night, this marked the first time that the race was held on July 4.

Pulliam entered the race tied with Deac McCaskill of Raleigh, N.C. for the lead in the NASCAR Whelen All American Series national points race. With the win, Pulliam regained the national points lead as McCaskill struggled to a 10th-place finish.

The race was a competitive one, with four lead changes among five drivers. Pulliam led the race only once, for the final 35 laps, taking the lead from Oakley after rallying from fourth place on an invert for the restart of the race after the 10-minute halfway break. 

Oakley finished third, former South Boston Speedway and NASCAR Whelen All American Series national champion Peyton Sellers of Danville, Va. finished fourth and former South Boston Speedway and multi-time NASCAR Whelen All American Series national champion Philip Morris of Ruckersville, Va. rounded out the top five finishers.

NASCAR Camping World Truck Series star Timothy Peters of Danville, Va., Bobby McCarty of Summerfield, N.C., Bruce Anderson of South Boston, Va., Austin Thaxton of Cluster Springs, Va. and McCaskill rounded out the top 10 finishers.

Pulliam averaged 59.407 mph in the race that was slowed by two caution periods that consumed eight laps.

            Willis Wins 100-Lap Limited Sportsman Race

Danny Willis Jr. of Cluster Springs, Va. fended off Michael Maresca of Hannawa Falls, N.Y. in a two-lap sprint to the finish that followed the last of the race’s three caution periods to win Thursday night’s 100-lap Limited Sportsman Division race.

The win was Willis’ fifth of the season at the .4-mile oval.

Willis started third in the race, and battled Maresca hard for the top spot over the final 60 laps of the race. Maresca successfully fended off Willis until Willis managed to wrestle the lead away on lap 67.

Once in front, Willis led the rest of the race, which was extended to 106 laps in order to accommodate a green-white-checkered finish, but not without a fight from Maresca.

Tommy Peregoy of Clarksville, Va., Garrett Bunch of Front Royal, Va. and Caleb Davis of Thaxton, Va. completed the top five finishers.

Willis averaged 64.255 mph in the race that was slowed by three caution periods for 19 laps.

            Allred Wins 50-Lap Pure Stock Division Race

Joe Allred, III of Scottsburg, Va. grabbed the lead from Nathan Crews of Long Island, Va. on the fourth lap and led the rest of the way to win Thursday night’s 50-lap race for the Budweiser Pure Stock Division.

The win was Allred’s fourth victory of the season. Along with allowing Allred to extend his lead in the division points race, the win gives Allred the most wins in the division thus far this season.

Stuart Crews of Long Island, Va. finished second, .388-second behind Allred after a close late-race battle with Allred for the win. Austin Milam of Ringgold, Va. finished third, with Randy Hupp of Halifax, Va. and Bruce Mayo of Halifax, Va. rounding out the top five finishers.

            Next Race At South Boston Speedway
