McCarty Takes Win In NASCAR Late Model 100 At South Boston Speedway

South Boston, Va….Bobby McCarty of Summerfield, North Carolina fended off a challenge from Danny Willis Jr. of South Boston, Virginia in a six-lap dash to the finish following the race’s final caution period to win Saturday night’s 100-lap NASCAR Whelen All American Series Late Model Stock Car Division race at South Boston Speedway.

The win was the first of the season for McCarty, who became the third different driver to visit Victory Lane at South Boston Speedway in the track’s first six Late Model Stock Car Division races of the season.

For Willis, the pole winner, the runner-up finish to McCarty was his best career finish in the NASCAR Late Model Stock Car Division ranks. But, it didn’t come without its challenges, as he had to fight off several bids by eventual third-place finisher Mark Wertz of Chesapeake, Virginia, including one over the closing laps, to earn the spot.

Defending South Boston Speedway NASCAR Whelen All American Series Champion Matt Bowling of Ridgeway, Virginia raced from his eighth starting spot to finish fourth and John Moore rounded out the top five finishers.

Justin Carroll of Lanexa, Virginia, former NASCAR Whelen All American Series National Champion Peyton Sellers of Danville, Virginia, Landon Huffman of Claremont, North Carolina, Nathan Crews of Long Island, Virginia and Dusty Ellington of Burkeville, Virginia rounded out the top 10 finishers.

McCarty, who led all but the first lap, averaged 54.359 mph in winning the race that was slowed by three caution periods.

Twenty-one cars took the green flag for the race.

Throckmorton Sweeps Limited Sportsman Twinbill

It didn’t matter where Joey Throckmorton found himself starting in Saturday night’s twin 25-lap NASCAR Limited Sportsman Division races.

Throckmorton, of South Boston, Virginia, swept the night’s pair of 25-lap NASCAR Limited Sportsman Division races, starting on the pole and leading flag-to-flag in the first race, and racing from his sixth starting spot in the nightcap to complete the sweep.

Saturday night’s sweep allowed Throckmorton to keep his unbeaten record at South Boston Speedway intact as he has now won all of the track’s first five races of the season.

David Latour Jr. of Clemmons, North Carolina was the runner-up in both races. Tommy Peregoy of Clarksville, Virginia finished third in the opener, with Mike Jones of South Boston, Virginia and Billy Myers of Hurt, Virginia rounding out the top five finishers in the first race.

Colin Garrett of South Boston, Virginia finished third behind Throckmorton and Latour in the nightcap for his best finish of the season. Peregoy and Jones completed the top five finishers in the second race.

Mayo, Layne Split Pure Stock Division Twinbill

Bruce Mayo of Halifax, Virginia and Johnny Layne of Nathalie, Virginia split wins in Saturday night’s pair of 15-lap races for the Budweiser Pure Stock Division.

The win by Mayo was his first of the season, while Layne’s win in the second race was his second victory in the division this season.

Randy Hupp of Halifax, Virginia was the runner-up in both races. Scott Phillips of Halifax, Virginia, Layne and Jordan Pickrel of Keeling, Virginia followed Mayo and Hupp across the finish line in the first race.

Pickrel finished third in the nightcap to earn his best finish of the season to date, with Phillips and Mayo rounding out the top five finishers.

            Dawson Wins Hornets Division race

Justin Dawson of Nathalie, Virginia took the lead from Kenny Mills Jr. of Alton, Virginia with seven laps to go and won the night’s 15-lap race for the Budweiser Hornets Division.

The win made Dawson the division’s fourth different winner in as many races.

Mills finished second with Todd Garnett of Drakes Branch, Virginia taking third place and Eric Winslow of Pelham, North Carolina and Drew Dawson of Nathalie, Virginia completing the top five finishers.
