Oakley Edges Bowling For SBS Win

South Boston, Va….It was ‘Bo Time!’ for Josh Oakley Saturday night at South Boston Speedway.

Oakley, of Rougemont, North Carolina, took the lead from Matt Bowling of Ridgeway, Virginia with seven laps to go and then fended off Bowling in a two-lap green-flag dash to the finish that followed the last of the race’s two caution periods to win Saturday night’s Bojangles NASCAR Late Model 150 at South Boston Speedway.

The win was Oakley’s second of the season at South Boston Speedway, and it came by a margin of .326-second.

Peyton Sellers of Ringgold, Virginia rallied to finish third after his right front tire went flat 13 laps from the finish while he was running second to race leader Bowling. Bruce Anderson of South Boston, Virginia finished fourth and Bobby McCarty of Summerfield, North Carolina rounded out the top five finishers.

Dennis Holdren of Roanoke, Virginia and Myatt Snider of Charlotte, N.C. finished sixth and seventh respectively and were the final two drivers in the 17-car starting field to finish on the lead lap.

Austin Thaxton of South Boston, Virginia finished eighth, one lap down after his car crashed into the wall on the final lap and Michael Maresca of Hannawa Falls, New York finished ninth, a lap down. Blake Stallings of Danville, Virginia finished tenth, two laps down.

Bowling won the pole and led until Oakley muscled his way past him one lap after the restart that followed the race’s first caution period that resulted from Seller’s flat tire. He and Oakley were lined up beside each other on the front row for the final restart, but it was Oakley that got the advantage at the end and the win.

Oakley averaged 77.082 mph in the race that had to be extended by two laps to accommodate a two-lap green-flag run at the end.

            Eversole Wins Limited Sportsman Race

J.D. Eversole of Richmond, Virginia took the lead on the opening lap and outran Daryn Cockram of Blacksburg, Virginia in a 13-lap sprint to the finish that followed the last of the race’s six caution periods to win the 50-lap Limited Sportsman Division race.

The win, Eversole’s second straight victory at South Boston Speedway, came by 2.602 seconds.

Former South Boston Speedway Limited Sportsman Division champion Billy Myers of Hurt, Va., Mark Simpson of Richmond, Virginia and Bob Davis of Thaxton, Virginia rounded out the top five finishers.

            Layne Wins Pure Stock Race

Johnny Layne of Nathalie, Virginia raced his way from the rear of the field to win Saturday’s 25-lap race for the Budweiser Pure Stock Division.

The win was Layne’s first victory of the season.

Layne took the lead from Mayo on the 17th lap and pulled away to a 1.244-second win.

Harrison Walker of Buffalo Junction, Virginia finished third with Jimmy Wade of Halifax, Virginia and Scott Phillips of Halifax, Virginia rounding out the top five finishers.

            Humblet Takes Victory In Modified Division Race

Jimmy Humblet of Shiloh, North Carolina started on the pole and scored a flag-to-flag win in the night’s 50-lap Modified Division race.

The win was Humblet’s second of the season.

Chris Johnson of Mechanicsville, Va. finished second, 1.071-second behind Humblet with Hunter Slayton of Richmond, Virginia, Mike Rudy of Prince George, Virginia and Joe Scarbrough of Charles City, Virginia rounding out the top five finishers.

Currin Wins Hornets Division

Kevin Currin of Chase City, Virginia took the lead on the second lap and won the 15-lap Hornets Division race.

Austin Milam of Ringgold, Virginia finished second, with Bobby Fleming of Danville, Virginia finishing third.
