South Boston Speedway News
Ramsey Scores Second Win As South Boston Speedway Caps Its 50th Anniversary Celebration Weekend

South Boston, VA. --

Wayne Ramsey has been looking to get back into Victory Lane here at South Boston Speedway since the first race of the season.

The Amherst, Va. resident finally got there Saturday night as he drove his Ford to victory in the 150-lap race for the Barkhouser Late Model Stock Car Division, the feature event of the Halifax County Tourism 150 Presented by Berry Hill Estate racing program.

Saturday night’s NASCAR racing action culminated the track’s 50th Anniversary Celebration Weekend which began on Friday night with a 50th Anniversary Reunion that brought together more than 100 former competitors, car owners and racing personalities that have been a part of South Boston Speedway’s rich history.

Ramsey took the lead from division points leader Adam Barker of Hurt, Va. on the 11th lap and never relinquished it as he drove to a 1.752 second victory over fellow Ford driver Greg Edwards of Poquoson, Va.

Barker finished third with Jonathan Bailey of Keysville, Va. finishing fourth and Jonathan Cash of Roxboro, N.C. rounding out the top five finishers. Rodney Cook of Reidsville, N.C. finished sixth and was the last driver to finish on the lead lap.

Eddie Johnson of Midlothian, Va., Ronald Hill of Rougemont, N.C., Scott Turlington of Richmond, Va. and David Triplett, Jr. of Timberlake, N.C. rounded out the top ten finishers. They were all two laps down.

Edwards, the pole winner, Barker and Ramsey engaged in a three-way battle for the lead early. When Ramsey broke into the top spot, the trio separated themselves from the field and determined the outcome between them.

A caution flag on lap 63 closed up the field but Ramsey was able to pull away from the field and secure his second win of the season.

The race featured two lead changes among three drivers with Ramsey leading the final 140 laps.

Ramsey averaged 79.921 mph in the race that took 45 minutes and 24 seconds to complete.

Anderson Wins Limited Sportsman Race

Limited Sportsman Division points leader Bruce Anderson of South Boston, Va. added to his points lead Saturday night as he drove to his 11th win of the season in the 50-lap Limited Sportsman Division race.

Anderson led only lap, taking the lead from pole winner Lee Pulliam of Semora, N.C. on the final lap and edging Pulliam by a car length and third-place finisher Danny Willis Jr. of Cluster Springs, Va. by about three car lengths.

Anderson’s margin of victory over Pulliam was .172 second. Willis was about three car lengths or .449 second behind at the finish.

Tommy Peregoy of Red Oak, Va. finished fourth and Brian Pembleton of Amelia, Va. rounded out the top five finishers.

Throckmorton Takes Pure Stock Win

Joey Throckmorton of Scottsburg, Va. took the lead on the sixth lap and drove to victory in the 30-lap race for the Budweiser Pure Stock Division.

Justin Tucker of Elon, N.C. crossed the finish line in second place but was disqualified after his car failed to pass a post-race inspection by track NASCAR officials.

Courtney Crosby of Scottsburg, Va. was elevated to second place with William Ridgeway of Burlington, N.C., Mark Francisco of Halifax, Va. and Joe Allred of Scottsburg, Va. rounding out the top five finishers.

Other Action

Eddie Capps of Sutherlin, Va. led all the way and won the 30-lap race for the Grand Stock Division. Troy Dowdy of Rustburg, Va., Lee Anderson of Gladys, Va. Ray Ellington, Va. of Madison Heights, Va. and Bennie Franklin of Rustburg, Va. rounded out the top five finishers.

Randy Smith of Bassett, Va. started on the pole and led all the way in winning the 25-lap race for the Southern Vintage Modified Racing Association.

Donnie Lacks of Lynchburg, Va. and Rodney Cook of Reidsville, N.C. finished second and third respectively.

Hendrick Wins 50th Anniversary Reunion Match Race

South Boston Speedway’s 50th anniversary celebration kicked off Friday night with a Four Champions Match race featuring former South Boston Speedway NASCAR track champions Barry Beggarly of Pelham, N.C., David Blankenship of Mosely, Va., Wayne Patterson of Amelia, Va. and Roy Hendrick of Richmond, Va.

The four champions competed in an eight-lap race driving cars provided by competitors in the Legendary Ford Flathead Racing Association.

Hendrick, the track’s first NASCAR Late Model Stock Car Division champion, scored a flag-to-flag win with Blankenship, Beggarly and Patterson trailing in order.

Blair Wins Legendary Ford Flatheads Racing Assoc. Race

Following the Four Champions Match Race, the competitors of the Legendary Ford Flatheads Racing Association raced in a 20-lap event.

Sixty-eight-year-old Bill Blair of Thomasville, N.C. won the event with Tom Corns of Kernersville, N.C. finishing second, about three car lengths back. Randy Apple of Reidsville, N.C. took third place with Jerry King of Burlington, N.C. and Jack Hale of Franklin rounding out the top five finishers.

Hale, while finishing fifth overall, was the top finisher in the Sportsman division.

Next Race At South Boston Speedway

After three consecutive weekends of racing, South Boston Speedway will be idle on Saturday night, August 24.
