South Boston Speedway News
Preece wins NWSMT 150; Pulliam sweeps Late Model twinbill

Southboston, Va --

Ryan Preece fended off J.R. Bertuccio in a two-lap dash to the finish that followed the race’s final caution period and won Saturday’s Easter Bunny NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour 150 at South Boston Speedway.

The win was Preece’s second career victory on the NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour and was his first win at South Boston Speedway.

His margin of victory over Bertuccio was .361 second.

Burt Myers of Walnut Cove, North Carolina, Eric Goodale of Riverhead, New York and Danny Bohn of Freehold, New Jersey rounded out the top five finishers.

Kyle Ebersole, who won last September’s NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour race at South Boston Speedway, finished sixth with David Calabrese, Trey Hutchens III, Gary Putnam and Jason Myers rounding out the top ten finishers.

Preece led 159 laps of the race, which had to be extended to 160 laps as the result of a pair of late-race cautions. The first of the two late-race mishaps occurred on lap 146 when the car driven by Paul Hartwig, Jr. spun on the backstretch. Then, when the race resumed on lap 153, a multi-car crash on the backstretch brought out another caution and a subsequent lengthy red-flag period, forcing a second attempt at a green-white-checker finish.

Preece was able to hold onto the lead on both restarts, fending off Bertuccio, whose bid to overtake Preece on the white-flag lap came up short.

Preece averaged 69.818 mph in the race that was slowed by three caution periods that consumed 16 laps.

Pulliam Pulls Off Late Model Sweep

Two-time NASCAR Whelen All American Series National Champion Lee Pulliam of Alton, Virginia became the third different winner in the NASCAR Whelen All American Series Late Model Stock Car Division at South Boston Speedway Saturday when he swept the day’s pair of 75-lap NASCAR Whelen All American Series Late Model Stock Car Division races.

Pulliam won the pole and led all but one lap in winning the day’s first 75-lap race, pulling away from former South Boston Speedway NASCAR Whelen All American Series Late Model Stock Car Division champion Matt Bowling of Ridgeway, Virginia in a 16-lap sprint that followed the race’s third and final caution period. His margin of victory over Bowling was 1.291-second.

Bobby McCarty of Summerfield, North Carolina, Chad Finchum of Knoxville, Tennessee and Blake Stallings of Danville, Virginia rounded out the top five finishers.

Due to a drawing for an inverted start, Pulliam started sixth in the second race, took the lead early, and with no cautions to slow the action, sped away from the field. His margin of victory over McCarty was 3.256 seconds, or almost a quarter of a lap.

Stallings finished third with Taylor Stricklin and Quin Houff of Weyers Cave, Virginia rounding out the top five finishers.

Next Race At South Boston Speedway

NASCAR racing action will return to South Boston Speedway on Saturday, April 11, when “America’s Hometown Track” hosts the 2 p.m. running of the Southern Virginia Higher Education Center NASCAR Late Model 150 racing program.

The five-event program will include races for the Limited Sportsman Division, Modified Division, Budweiser Pure Stock Division and Hornets Division.
