South Boston Speedway News
Pulliam Takes Holiday Race Win
Jul 7, 2014 - updated Jul 7th, 2014 10:35pm
Web posted by Tim Chandler

South Boston, Va. --

Two-time defending NASCAR Whelen All American Series National Champion Lee Pulliam of Alton, Virginia fended off former national champion Peyton Sellers and Massachusetts teenager Kaz Grala in a two-lap dash to the finish that followed the race’s final caution period to win Thursday night’s Dr. & Mrs. Maresca of St. Lawrence Radiology Presents Thunder Road Harley Davidson NASCAR Late Model 200 at South Boston Speedway.

Pulliam earned $5,000 for the win in what was the biggest remaining NASCAR Whelen All American Series Late Model Stock Car Division race of the season at “America’s Hometown Track.”

Grala, of Westborough, Massachusetts, edged Sellers for the runner-up spot on the final lap of the frantic two-lap green-flag dash that decided the outcome and extended the race to 206 laps. He trailed Pulliam by .344-second at the finish.

Sellers, of Ringgold, Virginia, had to settle for third place after having led twice in the race for a total of seven laps. Josh Oakley of Rougemont, North Carolina, who had won two of the previous three Late Model Stock Car Division races at South Boston Speedway, finished fourth and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series standout Timothy Peters of Danville, Virginia rounded out the top five finishers.

Deac McCaskill of Raleigh, North Carolina, four-time former NASCAR Whelen All American Series National Champion Philip Morris of Ruckersville, Virginia, Bruce Anderson of South Boston, Virginia, Matt Bowling of Ridgeway, Virginia and Austin Thaxton of South Boston, Virginia completed the top ten finishers.

The race was a competitive one with five lead changes among Pulliam, Morris and Sellers. Morris, the pole winner, led the first 70 laps of the race that went 206 laps to accommodate a green flag finish. He lost the top spot to Sellers for a couple of laps and regained the lead on lap 73. From there, Morris led to the halfway break, which came at lap 103.

A drawing during the halfway break resulted in the inversion of the top five drivers for the start of the second half of the race. Morris was never able to get back to the top spot, and Pulliam, who started second for the second half of the race, quickly jumped into the lead.

Sellers made a bid, taking the lead from Pulliam on lap 137 right after the restart that followed the race’s seventh caution period. But, Pulliam got the lead back from Sellers on lap 142 and led the rest of the way. In all, Pulliam led twice for a total of 88 laps enroute to his fourth straight win in South Boston Speedway’s annual pre-Fourth of July racing spectacle.

Pulliam averaged 49.125 mph in scoring his fourth win of the season at South Boston Speedway. The race, which was slowed by nine caution periods that consumed 49 laps, took one hour, 40 minutes and 38 seconds to complete. Seventeen of the race’s 28 starters finished on the lead lap.

            Willis Scores Win In 100-Lap Limited Sportsman Race

Danny Willis Jr. of Cluster Springs, Virginia scored a flag-to-flag win in Thursday night’s special 100-lap Limited Sportsman Division race.

This was the second year in a row Willis has won the season’s longest and richest Limited Sportsman Division race at the .4-mile oval.

Willis grabbed the lead from Trey Crews of Halifax, Virginia on the race’s final restart on lap 55 and sped away to win the race by 3.057 seconds, or about a quarter of a lap.

Joey Throckmorton of South Boston, Virginia finished third, with J.D. Eversole of Richmond, Virginia and Chuck Lawson of Providence, North Carolina rounding out the top five finishers.

Willis averaged 71.941 mph in winning the race that was slowed by three caution periods that consumed a total of 13 laps.

The win was Willis’ third victory of the season at South Boston Speedway and his second win in a row.

            Crews Wins Pure Stock Division Race

Stuart Crews of Long Island, Virginia scored his first victory of the season at South Boston Speedway, driving to a flag-to-flag victory in the 50-lap race for the Budweiser Pure Stock Division.

Eric Crews of Long Island, Virginia finished second and trailed by .667-second at the finish. Greg Autry of South Boston, Virginia finished third with Mikkie Milam of Ringgold, Virginia and Bruce Mayo of Halifax, Virginia rounding out the top five finishers.
