Southboston, Va --

Matt Bowling of Ridgeway, Virginia survived a tough battle with William Byron and two-time NASCAR Whelen All American Series National Champion Lee Pulliam over two late-race restarts to win Saturday’s Southern Virginia Higher Education Center NASCAR Late Model 150 at South Boston Speedway.

The win was Bowling’s first of the season, and it came in South Boston Speedway’s final event prior to the April 23

 

 Denny Hamlin Short Track Showdown celebrity charity NASCAR Late Model Stock Car Division race which will pit NASCAR stars against the best-of-the best Late Model drivers in the country.

 

Bowling was on the outside of the front row on both of the double-file restarts, took the lead on both, and, on the final one, which created a green-white-checker finish, was able to clear his challengers just before Byron made a tough move to the inside to muscle his way past Pulliam to grab second place.

Bowling, who led twice in the race for a total of 61 laps, sped under the checkered flag .396-second ahead of Byron, with Juan Garcia of Bogata, Columbia edging Pulliam for third place. Josh Berry finished fifth.

Quin Houff of Weyers Cave, Virginia, Myatt Snider of Charlotte, North Carolina, Bruce Anderson of South Boston, Virginia, Eddie Johnson of Midlothian, Virginia and Austin Thaxton of South Boston, Virginia rounded out the top 10 finishers.

Bowling averaged 67.748 mph in the race that was slowed by four cautions that consumed 23 laps.

Throckmorton Scores Win In Limited Sportsman Division

Joey Throckmorton of South Boston, Virginia started on the pole and led flag-to-flag in winning the 50-lap Limited Sportsman Division race.

The win in the caution free race was the first of the season for Throckmorton, who finished 1.265 seconds ahead of runner-up Mack Little III, who was making his first start at the track in several years.

Trey Crews of Halifax, Virginia finished third with defending division champion, Danny Willis Jr. of Cluster Springs, Virginia, and Calvin Meadows of Martinsville, Virginia rounding out the top five finishers.

Throckmorton averaged 85.547 mph in winning the race that took 14 minutes and one second to complete.

Rudy Wins Modified Division Race

Mike Rudy of Prince George, Virginia grabbed the lead from Jimmy Humblet of Shiloh, North Carolina with seven laps to go and drove away to a 2.538-second win over Humblet in the 50-lap Modified Division race.

Kyle Wood of Powhatan, Virginia finished third with Matt Slye of Williamsburg, Virginia and Chris Humblet of Shiloh, North Carolina rounding out the top five finishers.

Nathan Crews Takes First Win In Pure Stock Division Race

Nathan Crews of Long Island, Virginia took the lead from defending division champion Greg Autry of South Boston, Virginia on the second lap and led the rest of the way in winning the 30-lap race for the Budweiser Pure Stock Division.

The win was Crews’ first of the season in the division and it came in his first start of the season. His margin of victory over Autry was .799-second.

Stuart Crews of Long Island, Virginia finished third with Johnny Layne of Nathalie, Virginia and Bruce Mayo of Halifax, Virginia completing the top five finishers.

Winslow Makes It Two Straight Wins In Budweiser Hornets Division

Eric Winslow of Pelham, North Carolina took the lead from Kenny Mills, Jr. of Alton, Virginia on the third lap and drove to victory in the 15-lap Hornets Division race. The win was the second straight triumph for Winslow.

Mills finished second, with Kirstin Simmons of LaCrosse, Virginia, defending division champion Kevin Currin of Chase City, Va. and Michael Farmer rounding out the top five finishers.
