South Boston, VA. --

Eddie Johnson didn't need any luck Saturday night at South Boston Speedway.


Earlier this season, Johnson, who resides in Midlothian, Va. collected his first Barkhouser Late Model Stock Car Division win of the campaign after he surged to first place from the fourth position when the lead three cars on the track got tangled in an accident.



Saturday night, Johnson posted his second win of the season at the four-tenths mile asphalt oval, but he didn't need any assistance. After qualifying fourth, Johnson battled to the front by the 105th circuit and pulled away to collect the win in the featured attraction of the SunTrust 150 presented by GCR NASCAR Dodge Weekly Series race program.



"I got a little lucky in that first win here," Johnson said after the race. "But tonight, I flat had the best car here."



Wayne Ramsey of Amherst, Va. placed second, exactly where he started the event. Ramsey, however, slipped back to third in the early stages of the race before battling into the runner-up slot on lap 137.



Owen Miller of Emporia, Va. garnered a third-place finish in the race and pulled to within eight points of division points leader Drew Herring of Benson, N.C. with one race remaining in the title chase this season at South Boston Speedway.



Herring qualified ninth in the field and wound up posting an eighth-place finish. When the night began, Herring owned an 18-point lead over a second-place tie between Miller and Cash.



Rodney Cook of Reidsville, N.C. started eighth in the race, but rallied for a fourth-place finish, while Jon Denning of Springfield, N.J. rounded out the top five finishers in the event.



Nick Smith of Hampton, Va. was sixth at the checkered flag, while pole position winner David Triplett, Jr. of Timberlake, N.C. was seventh. Cliff Daniels of Smithfield, Va. placed ninth, just behind Herring. Daniels was the final driver on the lead lap.



Cash rounded out the top 10 competitors in the race and was one lap down at the close of the race.



The race was slowed by two cautions, the first of which came out on lap 119 when Jonathan Bailey of Keysville, Va. went spinning in the backstretch.



The second caution flag flew on lap 137 when Adam Barker of Hurt, Va. went spinning in turn four after battling Ramsey for second place. Earlier, Barker led the race from lap nine through the 104th circuit.



Danny Willis, Jr. scores 2nd Limited Sportsman victory; Anderson unofficially locks up points championship



Danny Willis, Jr. of Cluster Springs, Va. started on the outside of the front row, grabbed the lead for good on the fourth circuit and held on the rest of the way to secure his second Strutmasters.com Limited Sportsman Division triumph of the season.



Willis battled side-by-side through the first three laps of the race with pole sitter Charles Barnes of Chase City, Va., who wound up second in the 50-lap race, which was slowed by just two caution periods.



Despite wrecking his car during qualifying time trials and being involved in both caution incidents on the track, Bruce Anderson of South Boston, Va. motored to a sixth-place finish to unofficially lock up the division's points crown.



Timmy Langford of Amelia, Va. started sixth in the event, but motored to a third-place run and was followed by Tommy Peregoy of Red Oak, Va. in the fourth position. Tiffany Daniels of Smithfield, Va. secured a fifth-place performance and was the final driver on the lead lap.



Chuck Watkins scores fourth Pure Stock win of season to unofficially claim division points championship



Chuck Watkins of Stem, N.C. motored to his fourth Budweiser Pure Stock Division victory of the season in 30-lap racing action Saturday night and unofficially locked up a points championship in the process.



Watkins qualified third in the 13-car field, but started sixth after the top eight drivers in time trials were inverted for the race. Watkins motored to the front in the final 10 laps of the race, which was slowed by two caution periods.



Mark Francisco of Halifax, Va. led a portion of the race, but settled for a second-place finish at the end, while Lee Anderson of Gladys, Va. placed third. Anderson also led a portion of the race in the early stages.



Justin Tucker of Elon, N.C. finished fourth in the field and was followed in the top five by William Ridgeway of Burlington, N.C.



Corey Lqjoie scores win in Pro Challenge Series;

Mathis finishes third to claim points championship



Corey Lajoie earned the pole position prior to the 51-lap race for the competitors in the touring Aaron's Pro Challenge Series and led every lap to secure a victory.



Terry Mathis finished third in the 11-car field and locked up the season-long title chase for the series. The title was the third consecutive for Mathis in the series.



John Stancill motored to a second-place finish just ahead of the series champion, while Kenny Forbes, who started eighth in the field, rounded out the top four competitors in the race.
