South Boston, VA. --

Late Model Stock Car crown with 9th triumph of season

Drew Herring of Benson, N.C. entered Saturday night's racing action at South Boston Speedway with a slim eight-point lead in the Barkhouser Late Model Stock Car Division standings.

Herring left America's Hometown Track at the end of the evening with his ninth NASCAR Dodge Weekly Series victory of the season and the track championship. The 150-lap race was the featured attraction of the Miss Utility 150.

Herring started the event from the third spot in the 13-car field, but took the lead in the early stages when pole position winner Jon Denning of Springfield, N.J. tapped race leader Jonathan Cash of Oxford, N.C. in the rear to send the two cars spinning.

When the race went back under the green flag, Herring had the lead position, a spot he would not relinquish despite constant pressure from Nick Smith of Hampton, Va., who wound up second at the close of the race.

Owen Miller of Emporia, Va. motored to a third-place finish in the field and wound up second in the final points standings.

Two-time winner Eddie Johnson of Midlothian, Va. posted a fourth-place run in the race, while Cash recovered from his early-race incident to finish in the fifth-place position. Johnson wound up third in the final point standings, while Cash was fourth in the championship chase.

Adam Barker of Hurt, Va. finished in sixth place in the race and was followed by David Quackenbush of Lorton, Va. in seventh. Quackenbush was the final driver on the lead lap.

Rodney Sawyer of Ridgeway, Va. posted an eighth-place run in his first racing action on the four-tenths mile asphalt oval since the 2001 campaign. Sawyer was one lap down at the close of the race.

Keven Wood of Stuart, Va. finished in ninth place, three laps down, while Richard Storm of Partlow, Va. rounded out the top 10 competitors.

Willis scores 3rd Limited Sportsman win of the year;

Anderson places third and locks up division title

Danny Willis, Jr. motored to his third Strutmasters.com Limited Sportsman Division victory of the season after gaining the lead in the early stages of the 50-lap race.

Willis was running third on the track when the lead two cars of Bruce Anderson of South Boston, Va. and Tommy Peregoy of Red Oak, Va. got together while battling for the lead.

Once in front, Willis was able to fend off his contenders and pick up the victory. Anderson, who suffered a stop-and-go penalty for the incident with Peregoy, rallied back through the eight-car field and was running second before Charles Barnes of Chase City, Va. made a late pass to secure the runner-up spot on the track.

Anderson, a 10-time winner in the division this season, wound up third in the race, while Peregoy finished fifth and was followed in the top five by Timmy Langford of Amelia, Va.

Watkins finishes 2nd and is crowned champion

Chuck Watkins of Stem, N.C. had locked up the championship in the Budweiser Pure Stock Division prior to Saturday night's 30-lap race. A second-place finish by Watkins in the 12-car field simply added to his points lead.

Justin Tucker of Elon, N.C. started fourth in the event and moved to the head of the field on lap 19. Once in front, Tucker motored in the lead the remainder of the way to score a triumph.

Quain Moore of Callands, Va. finished third in the race and claimed second point in the points standings. William Ridgeway of Burlington, N.C. was fourth at the finish and was followed in the top five by Chris Seay of Ringgold, Va.

Watkins posted the fast qualifying time, but wound up starting sixth in the event following a pre-race inversion.

Patrick Molesworth of Robbinsville, N.J. scored a victory in the 25-lap race for the touring INEX Legends Series, while Jeremy Cook of Hampton, Va. posted a runner-up finish and locked up the track championship for the series.

Cook started fifth in the caution-plagued event, but challenged for the lead before winding up in second place.

Molesworth began the event from the pole and, after losing the lead in the early stages to Austin Dillon of Lewisville, N.C., battled back to score the triumph.

Dillon wound up with a third-place finish in the 16-car field and was followed in the top five by Brad Arthur of Roanoke Rapids, N.C. in fourth place and Brad Hancock of Newport News, Va. in the fifth position.

Bill Blair records victory Legendary Flatheads event

Bill Blair of Thomasville, N.C. grabbed the lead on the eighth circuit of the 20-lap race for the touring Legendary Flathead Series and held on the rest of the way to post a victory.

Jerry King of Burlington, N.C. was second in the 10-car field and was the winner among the Sportsman Division competitors.

Don Cook of Burlington, N.C. was third and was followed in the top four by James Shaw of Tobaccoville, N.C.

The race was red-flagged 10 laps into the event when the car of multi-time winner Johnny Gregory of Rural Hall, N.C. spun coming out of turn four and was struck hard by Clayton Smith of King, N.C., who began the race from the pole position.
