South Boston, Va……South Boston Speedway’s first night race of the 2017 season was a night for new winners.

Bobby McCarty of Summerfield, North Carolina and former NASCAR Whelen All American Series National Champion and South Boston Speedway Champion Peyton Sellers of Danville, Virginia each picked up a win in the Virginia State University NASCAR Late Model Twin 75s Presented by Petersburg Kappa League Saturday night at South Boston Speedway.

McCarty picked up the win in the first of the night’s pair of 75-lap NASCAR Whelen All American Series Late Model Stock Car Division races after inheriting the lead when race leader Sellers spun after contact from former NASCAR Whelen All American Series National Champion Lee Pulliam of Alton, Virginia with eight laps to go.

Both drivers were forced to restart the race at the rear of field, with McCarty holding the top spot for the restart. Two more caution flags were waved for mishaps before the race ended, with McCarty holding off Danny Willis Jr. and Austin Thaxton, both of South Boston, Virginia, in a four-lap green-flag dash to the finish to earn his first win of the season.

Sellers rallied to finish fourth and Trevor Ward of Winston-Salem, North Carolina rounded out the top five finishers.

Sellers, driving a No. 00 Toyota in honor of late NASCAR Busch Series Champion Sam Ard who passed away a week earlier, won the wreck-filled nightcap, taking the lead on the opening lap and holding off Pulliam by a margin of .300-second.

The win was Sellers’ first victory at South Boston Speedway in over a year.

Thaxton finished third with Brandon Pierce of Oak Ridge, North Carolina and Josh Oakley of Rougemont, North Carolina completing the top five finishers.

Crews Wins Limited Sportsman Division Race

Trey Crews of Halifax, Virginia picked up his first win of the young season in the 50-lap Limited Sportsman Division race, edging Mike Jones of South Boston, Virginia by .757-second in a seven-lap dash to the finish that followed the last of the race’s seven caution periods.

Crews, a one-time winner at South Boston Speedway last season, muscled his way under pole winner and race leader Colin Garrett of South Boston, Virginia with 22 laps to go in the race and led the rest of the way.

Garrett finished third with Ross “Boo Boo” Dalton of Liberty, North Carolina and Dylan Saul of Charlottesville, Virginia rounding out the top five finishers.

Walker Scores Win In Pure Stock Division Race

Harrison Walker of Buffalo Junction, Virginia had not won a race in his three previous seasons of competing in the Budweiser Pure Stock Division at South Boston Speedway. That changed for the North Carolina State University student Saturday night.

Walker inherited the lead when race leader, defending division champion Johnny Layne of Nathalie, Virginia, was forced to the sidelines with a mechanical issue halfway through the race and sped to a 3.571-second win over Randy Hupp of Halifax, Virginia in the 30-lap Budweiser Pure Stock Division race.

Tyler Conner of Scottsburg, Virginia finished third, Scott Phillips of Halifax, Virginia finished fourth and Bruce Mayo of Halifax, Virginia finished fifth.

Crute Wins Wild Hornets Division Race

Tyler Crute of Alton, Virginia picked up his second win in as many starts this season in the 15-lap Budweiser Hornets Division, and did it in the most spectacular of ways, leading only the final lap.

Crute rallied from his starting spot at the rear of the 12-car field to pressure race leader Drew Dawson of Nathalie, Virginia over the last half of the race. The pair started side-by-side on the race’s final restart with four laps to go. On the last lap, Crute got the nose of his car in front of Dawson’s car as they sped down the frontstretch for the final time. Contact was made between the two cars, and Crute spun, taking the checkered flag with his car spinning sideways just in front of Dawson’s car.

Jared Dawson of Nathalie, Virginia finished third, Kevin Currin of Chase City, Virginia finished fourth and Justin Dawson of Nathalie, Virginia rounded out the top five finishers in the race.
