Causey Scores History-Making Win At SBS; Splits LMSC Twinbill With Morris

South Boston, Va…. Sixteen-year-old Macy Causey of Yorktown, Virginia became the first woman to win a NASCAR Whelen All American Series Late Model Stock Car Division race at South Boston Speedway Saturday night as she survived the wreck-plagued first race of the Bojangles NASCAR Whelen Late Model Twin 75s to score her first career win.

Four-time former NASCAR Whelen All American Series National Champion and former South Boston Speedway NASCAR Champion Philip Morris of Ruckersville, Virginia wrestled the lead from former NASCAR Whelen All American Series National Champion and former South Boston Speedway NASCAR Champion Peyton Sellers of Danville, Virginia with seven laps to go and sped to a 2.685-second victory in the night’s second 75-lap race.

Causey’s win was her first career triumph in NASCAR Whelen All American Series Late Model Stock Car Division racing, and was her first career win in a full-bodied stockcar.

Causey, who drives for Rev Racing, found herself in the right place at the right time as mishaps either eliminated or caused enough damage to knock several top contenders out of a chance to win.

The mayhem started when former NASCAR Whelen All American Series National Champion and former South Boston Speedway NASCAR Champion Lee Pulliam’s engine blew on lap 21 while leading the race, causing him to spin and trigger others behind him to wreck including Morris and Sellers.

Danny Willis Jr., Brandon Pierce and Sellers were among those involved in a mishap on lap 44. With two laps to go, Ryan Repko and Austin Thaxton were eliminated in a hard crash while battling for the lead.

That put Causey on the inside of the front row next to Pierce for the final restart. She surged past Pierce, of Oak Ridge, North Carolina, on the final lap, edging Pierce by .286-second for the win. Jason Barnes of Stony Creek, Virginia finished third, Raymond Pittman III of Amelia, Virginia finished fourth and Jason Pittman of Chester, Virginia rounded out the top five finishers in the race that saw only six of 15 starters complete the distance.

There were seven lead changes among five drivers in the opening race, which was slowed by six cautions and two red flags. It took one hour and 23 minutes to complete the race.

The nightcap was a battle between Sellers and Morris for the win, with Morris taking the lead with eight laps to go after contact between the two cars forced Sellers’ car to slide to the top of the track.

Once in front, Morris sped away to score his second win of the season at the .4-mile oval. Pierce finished third behind Morris and Sellers, with Willis, of South Boston, Virginia, and Causey rounding out the top five finishers.

Garrett Takes Limited Sportsman Victory

Sixteen-year-old Colin Garrett of South Boston, Virginia scored his first-ever stockcar racing victory Saturday night, and did it in dominating fashion in the 40-lap NASCAR Limited Sportsman Division race.

The race had originally been scheduled for 50 laps, but due to lengthy weather delays, was scaled back to 40 laps.

Garrett won his third straight pole of the season in qualifying and led the entire race, finishing 5.83 seconds ahead of runner-up Barry Beggarly, Jr. of Providence, North Carolina. David Latour Jr. of Clemmons, North Carolina, Trey Crews of Halifax, Virginia and Eric Winslow of Pelham, North Carolina completed the top five finishers.

            Adkins Wins Pure Stock Race

A third new winner emerged at South Boston Speedway Saturday night as Quincy Adkins of Danville, Virginia scored his first win in the 20-lap race for the Budweiser Pure Stock Division.

The race was originally scheduled for 30 laps but was scaled back to 20 laps due to lengthy weather delays.

Defending division champion Johnny Layne of Nathalie, Virginia gave Adkins a tough battle in the closing laps, with Adkins taking the lead on the final lap and edging Layne by a half a car length at the finish line. Early leader Randy Hupp of Halifax, Virginia finished third with Harrison Walker of Buffalo Junction, Virginia and Bruce Mayo of Halifax, Virginia rounding out the top five finishers.

            Drew Dawson Scores Second Hornets Division Victory

Drew Dawson of Nathalie, Virginia took the lead with two laps to go and won the 15-lap Budweiser Hornets Division race. The win was Dawson’s second of the season.

Kevin Currin of Chase City, Virginia, Connor Priest of Dewitt, Virginia, Matthew Epps of Halifax, Virginia and Jared Dawson of Nathalie, Virginia rounded out the top five finishers.
