Late Model Stock Competition Much Deeper Than Expected At South Boston Speedway This Season

Teenager Daniel Silvestri (97) has been one of the big Late Model Stock surprises at South Boston Speedway this season.

SOUTH BOSTON, VA – The racing season is young at South Boston Speedway, with just four race dates in the books so far. But there have already been some solid story lines revealed.

As expected, the three NASCAR Whelen All-American Series national champions, Peyton Sellers, Philip Morris, and Lee Pulliam have dominated victory lane.

What may be unexpected though, is the depth of the competition. Ten different drivers … Pulliam, Sellers, Morris, Mike Looney, Austin Thaxton, Jason Barnes, Trey Crews, Thomas Scott, Mike Jones, and Daniel Silvestri have all posted top-5 finishes in just five races this season.

Thaxton and Crews have been solid enough to elbow their way into the top-5 in the point standings, despite the winning ways of the big three. With second, fourth and fifth-place finishes, Thaxton is tied for second with Morris in the Late Model points standings, trailing only Sellers.

Late Model rookie Crews is fourth in the standings after a pair of third-place finishes and four top-10 efforts. Pulliam, who won the season-opener, is fifth in points.

Morris and Sellers have two wins apiece.

Silvestri is perhaps the biggest surprise of the season. The 16-year-old rookie finished second to Sellers on April 20 in just his third Late Model start. He also has a sixth to his credit this season.

The Limited Sportsman Division has seen parity as well early in 2019. There have been three different winners … Danny Willis Jr., Jacob Borst, and Daniel Moss … in three races this year.

There is just a 10-point difference between first and fourth in the Limited points standings. Moss leads the way with 106 points, followed by Willis with 99, Jessica Dana with 98 and Borst with 96.

Nathan Crews, behind a pair of victories, leads the Budweiser Pure Stock Points by 17 over Jordan Pickrel and Bruce Mayo, who are tied for second. Crews captured the first two races of the season and Pickrel won the most recent Pure Stock race.

Steven Layne leads the Budweiser Hornets Division in victories with two but trails Kevin Currin, who has one victory, in points. Currin has a five-point, 122-117 lead over Layne.

All divisions will be back in action Saturday night with the Bojangles NASCAR Late Model 100, featuring a 100-lap Late Model Stock race, twin 25-lap races for the Limited Sportsman Division, twin 15-lap races for the Budweiser Pure Stock Division and a15-lap race for the Budweiser Hornets Division.

Admission is $10 for adults with children 12-and-under admitted free. Grandstand gates open at 5:30 p.m. with the green flag falling at 7 p.m.

Virginia Triple Crown To Pay For First, Second and Third in 2019

The $10,000 bonus will be distributed $7,000, $2,000 and $1,000 among drivers with the best average finishing positions at South Boston, Langley and Martinsville.

 

MARTINSVILLE, VA – In an effort to reward more drivers for entering the three biggest NASCAR Late Model Stock Car races in Virginia, the Virginia Triple Crown will pay the top-three drivers with the best average finishing positions in the Thunder Road Harley-Davidson Presented by Grand Atlantic Ocean Resort 200 at South Boston Speedway, the Hampton Heat 200 at Langley Speedway and the ValleyStar Credit Union 300 at Martinsville Speedway.

The $10,000 prize will be distributed $7,000 to the winner, $2,000 for second place and $1,000 for third place.

“We want to give drivers even more of an incentive to start all three races,” Martinsville Speedway President Clay Campbell said. “By going to this format, a driver who gets unlucky at South Boston still has incentive to race at Langley and Martinsville.”

South Boston Speedway General Manager Cathy Rice said they are excited to have the Triple Crown back again this year.

“I think it will be a big year for everyone involved,” Rice said. “Paying the top-three finishers of the Virginia Triple Crown will certainly entice more competitors to join this year and compete in all three events that are included. Not only that, but the fans will have more action to look forward to, as well.”

Bill Mullis, owner of Langley Speedway, said he believes paying the top-three will benefit both fan and drivers.

“Langley Speedway is proud to continue to participate in this great event,” said Langley Speedway Owner Bill Mullis. “We believe the new purse structure will add a bonus to the top finishing drivers that will increase the interest level in all three of these important races.”

The Triple Crown has previously paid to the top-3 finishers but recently has been a winner-take-all format.

Peyton Sellers, the 2018 Triple Crown Champion, has won with both formats and said he likes paying the top-3 as opposed to just the winner, even though it’s less money for the Champion.

“There’s a lot of guys that travel back and forth to Langley and South Boston that put a lot of work into it and don’t get rewarded with the winner-take-all approach,” Sellers said “By paying the top-3 it also may keep more drivers racing for the Triple Crown, as one bad race won’t eliminate you. A lot of times the Triple Crown comes down to just one position and it can be decided in the last five laps at Martinsville, so this is a good way to reward more drivers for their efforts.”

In the event of a tie for any of the positions, the tie will be broken by the driver with the higher finish at Martinsville. To be eligible for the Triple Crown a driver must start all three races.

The Triple Crown starts June 29 with the running of the Thunder Road Harley-Davidson Presented by Grand Atlantic Ocean Resort 200 at South Boston Speedway and continues on July 20 with the Hampton Heat 200 at Langley Speedway. The Triple Crown will wrap up with the ValleyStar Credit Union 300 at Martinsville on October 5.

Josh Berry Claims CARS Tour Win After Holding Highest Hand at Ace Speedway

ALTAMAHAW, NC– Despite his involvement in two separate incidents during the night, Josh Berry executed one of the best performances of his career on Friday night at Ace Speedway, winning The Race At Ace 125 for the CARS Late Model Stock Tour. It was Berry’s 15th career victory in the series and an emotional one after his car owner, Dale Earnhardt, Jr., lost his mother just over a week prior.

In Hedgecock Pole Qualifying, Ryan Millington rocketed to the fast time award, the first of his CARS Late Model Stock Tour career. The youngster led the opening handful of circuits but was challenged early on restarts.

Three laps into the race, the caution flew for Trevor Ward’s smoking car, but at the exact moment the caution was called, Justin Carroll and Layne Riggs made contact, leading to a five-car pileup involving Berry, Tommy Lemons, Taylor Gray, Sammy Smith, and Jason York. Although damaged, all drivers except York were able to eventually continue. Carroll brought out the next caution six laps later when a loose wheel eventually separated itself from the car, causing him to spin in turn two.

Bobby McCarty took the lead from Ryan Millington on lap nine and appeared to be in the same form he was one year prior at Ace where he led nearly every lap en route to victory.

On a lap 30 restart, Zack St. Onge apparently missed a shift, a mistake which led the field to fan out and subsequently multiple competitors made contact in the first turn, leading to a multi-car incident where Brandon Pierce impacted the outside wall. Leland Honeyman, Jr., was also involved, ramping his machine over the entire right rear quarter panel of Josh Berry before also making contact with the concrete which ultimately ended his night.

A slew of additional minor cautions occurred through the middle stages of the race (laps 38, 55, 57, and 89) but Bobby McCarty continued to set the pace over his closest pursuer, Deac McCaskill, who shadowed the No. 22 for most of the event. Despite his issues early, Josh Berry worked his way up to third and passed McCaskill on lap 76 before chasing down leader McCarty under green.

The caution for Taylor Gray and Mini Tyrrell’s encounter on lap 89 set up a pivotal restart for McCarty and Berry within sight of the finish. As the field raced into turn three, Berry eased into McCarty’s rear bumper, moved him up the racetrack and stole the preferred line as the field raced into turn one. Following additional contact, Berry emerged as the leader and quickly opened up a sizeable advantage of Deac McCaskill who also bypassed McCarty during the same sequence.

Even a late-race caution for a single-car spin on lap 103 could not slow down Berry. He extended his lead to 2.421 seconds in the final 22 laps and handily beat Ryan Millington, McCaskill, McCarty, and his JR Motorsports teammate Adam Lemke to the stripe.

“At the beginning, when we got turned around, that wasn’t good,” Berry said in Edelbrock Victory Lane. “But, man, I felt calm. I could tell early on we had a good car, we just didn’t get a good qualifying lap.”

Before climbing out of the car, Berry pointed to the roof of the car where a memorial decal was placed in remembrance of his car owner’s late mother, Brenda Jackson, who passed away just over a week prior. He then shared how important she was in his racing career.

“It’s obviously been a long week for everyone at JR Motorsports with the passing of Brenda,” he said while visibly holding back some emotion. “Willie and Brenda are a large part of why I’m here. Ten years ago when I moved here to drive late models, they let me live at their house for like two months. Without them, and their hospitality doing that, I might not be here today. It’s just been a long week for everyone this week. Dale, Kelley, L.W., I know they’ve been going through a lot so this one’s for them.

“This has been a place we’ve struggled a little bit, but I don’t know, I guess we just figured it out tonight,” he continued. “There were a couple little things we were able to work on and make our car better. I think, for me, it had such a feel like Martinsville [last year] where I could get it turned and point it straight to come right off the bottom. It was just a matter of time until we kept picking them off and picking them off. I wanna thank the good Lord above that we didn’t get caught up in a lot of trouble when we were back there in the back. We were able to sneak through it, there, and miss the big one on the front stretch because it was a bad situation and I didn’t know which way to go.”

The win, coupled with the misfortune of his closest two-point pursuers Taylor Gray and Brandon Pierce, extended Berry’s point lead entering race five of the tour at Motor Mile Speedway on May 18. The CARS Super Late Model Tour will also be in action in yet another twin-bill race format, and the tour’s first visit to southwestern Virginia since its inaugural season in 2015.

Philip Morris Dominates Caution Free Feature at Langley Speedway from the Pole

Hampton, VA– After coming off a win and a second place finish the week prior in the return of Motor Mile Speedway to the NASCAR community, Philip Morris rolled into Hampton, Virginia with one thing on his mind – domination. He did just that when it came time to get down to business. Morris laid down a 15.768-second lap to earn the pole position. Brenden Queen, Greg Edwards, Danny Edwards Jr., and Connor Hall rounded out the fast five

Morris wasted absolutely zero time jumping out to the lead when Shayne Snider waved the green flag. Brenden Queen did his best to battle on the outside groove but failed to make anything happen but falling in line in the second position. That was until Connor Hall turned up the wick and got around the Chesapeake native bringing Greg Edwards with him. By the time Hall completed the pass Morris had opened up more than a full second lead and continued to set a blistering pace.

Towards the middle part of the race, Hall was able to close the gap that Morris had worked so hard to build. However, lapped traffic seemed to play into the hands of the five-time national champion. Morris was able to work his way around much easier than Hall and Edwards. In fact, Edwards was able to apply pressure on Hall for the second spot. This also allowed Morris to rebuild his lead. Edwards would eventually give Hall a shot going into turn one as the laps clicked off to eventually take second, Hall would settle into third. Brenden Queen and Thomas Marks rounded out the top five.

Maddy Mulligan had the best run of her Langley Late Model career as her car looked to come in later in the race. After making sure to say out of the way of Morris she was able to get around Rodney Boyd, Rick Gdovic, and rookie Zach Lightfoot. Even though she finished two laps down she would leave the property with a seventh-place finish.

Morris was excited in victory lane after making a statement on the track and made another one in the microphone.

“A win here at Langley Speedway is so special for me because it has been such a hard place,” Morris said in victory lane. “Especially what happened to the car the last time we were here. I have to thank Herb Nation, Travis, Forrest and all the guys at Forrest–Reynolds Racing for getting it back this close. It had a couple little hiccups during the race but all in all, I would say it’s [the car] as good as it’s ever been. My guys and spotter did a great job tonight, I can’t be any more proud of them.”

Morris also gave credit where credit was due saying he had to be on his toes tonight with the level of competition that was behind him. He would also foreshadow that this might be the Morris we see in a few short months at the Hampton Heat.

“It’s just hard not to spin the tires when the seventy-seven [Connor Hall] and Greg Edwards are so good here,” Morris said. “Darrell Poe did a great job on this motor for tonight, it’s nice and fresh, and I think we are about ready for the Hampton Heat.”

In support divisions, Paul Lubno ended up in victory lane after Tim Wilson and Sammy Gaita made contact racing for the lead in the 40-lap Grand Stock feature. Gaita had been leaving more than normal room on the bottom line on corner exit and Wilson saw his opportunity at the win. The contact sent Sammy spinning down the front stretch and made hard contact with the inside retaining wall.

Brandon Wood took the victory in the Bojangles UCAR feature while Chase McAdams found victory lane once more in the Harris Truck Shop Super Trucks.

Cole Bruce Gets Season Turned Around with Win at Dominion

FREDERICKSBURG, VA – Cole Bruce picked up his first win of the year at Dominion Raceway on Saturday, turning around what has been a tumultuous start to his 2019 season.

Bruce, 15, from Fredericksburg, Virginia, started Saturday’s Dominion Racer feature in the third position and quickly raced his way to the front of the field.  Bruce made his pass on the fourth lap of the 35 lap feature and held on to score the victory.

After a disappointing start to the season, the win was just what was needed to get the team back on track.

“It helped boost us up,” Bruce said.  “It gives us more confidence in ourselves for the rest of the season so we’re not scratching our heads trying to figure out what we need to do to make the car faster.  This win means a lot because we’re in a good spot for the rest of the season knowing we have a great car.  It just mainly relieves us to get that first win of the season.”

Bruce’s season started with a practice accident at South Boston Speedway in March.  After another disappointing result at Dominion Raceway, Bruce picked up his first top-five finish of the year at South Boston Speedway on April 20th.

“Our car program is doing well thanks to After Hours Fabrication,” Bruce said.  “Motor program, we’ve got that straightened out.  Overall, I think we have a pretty good shot at the Dominion championship this year.  I feel confident we’ll come back to South Boston and hopefully get a top-three finish, or, even better, a win.”

After scoring his first win of 2019, Bruce is now setting his sights on picking up more victories at Dominion Raceway.  His next race will be on Saturday, May 18th in the 35 lap Dominion Racer feature at the Thornburg, Virginia track.

Cole Bruce is supported in 2019 by Papa John’s, Shepherd’s Heating and Air, Matco Tools, Radley Cadillac in Fredericksburg, Mullins Racing and Dinah Marie Photography.

Barron Finally Finds Victory Lane at Carteret

PELETIER, NC – TJ Barron outlasted the competition in Saturday’s Clash at the Coast to score his first career victory at Bobby Watson’s Carteret County Speedway.

Barron made his move late in the race, passing Brandon Clements on lap 48 in the 60-lap race and driving away for his first Carteret County Speedway win.  The victory was special for Barron.  He was able to snap a winless drought that dated back to 2013 when he last won at Coastal Plains Raceway in Jacksonville.  After the race, he was given the winner’s trophy by his youngest son, Colton.

“This is pretty special,” Barron said in victory lane.  “We worked our butts off man.  This place has eluded me for last year and the first part of this year.  We had a good car.  It’s been since 2013 since we last won.  We finally won somewhere else besides Coastal Plains.  That’s pretty special.”

Chris Burns dominated for much of the first part of the race, but Clements was able to get in position to make a run at the lead when electing to start on the outside after a lap 35 caution.  On lap 37, Clements was able to make his way around Burns before eventually surrendering the lead to Barron.  Clements settled for second.

“I don’t know why everybody’s scared to jump out there, you can make it happen,” Clements remarked.  “We’re chipping away at it, little at a time.  It’s getting better and better.  I think we’ll come back out next time and we’ll have the heat for them.”

Eric Winslow finished third while Chris Burns and Rusty Daniels rounded out the top-five.

Jordan Lamothe led only one lap in the Legends feature, but it was the most important lap.

Lamothe inherited the lead on the last lap when race leaders Emily Day and Brian Sullivan wrecked on the backstretch.  The incident between Day and Sullivan immediately brought out the caution flag, which ended the race, allowing Lamothe to score his first Carteret County Speedway victory.

“I don’t really know what happened back there,” Lamothe said.  “I hope they’re both okay.  Sometimes it doesn’t matter what lap you lead as long as you’re the first one who crosses the start-finish line.  I just have to thank my mom, dad, fiancé, and everyone for all the support.  I hope the fans had a good time.”

Spencer Saunders finished in second while Shane Irving, Zack Brown and Aaron Crumpler rounded out the top-five.

Robert Arch picked up the victory in the Mini-Stock division, his third Carteret County Speedway win of the year, holding off Kris Hetu and Stephen Sanders.  After competing in the Mini-Stock feature, Sanders headed north to Winston-Salem where he won the Stadium Stock feature at Bowman Gray Stadium’s season opener later Saturday night.

Arch also competed in the U-CAR division, where he picked up his first two wins of the year, finishing second to Andrew Jackson.  The victory was Jackson’s first of the year.

Chris Burns picked up his second consecutive Street Stock victory over Mike Cooper and Billy Slater, while Sean Wales was victorious in Champ Kart competition and Charles Pudenz won in the Mini Cup feature.

The next race at Bobby Watson’s Carteret County Speedway, scheduled for May 11th, will be the first night race of the 2019 season.  The Short Track Shootout is headlined by a $2,500-to-win Legends race which appears destined to attract one of the largest fields in Carteret County Speedway history.

Young Guns Connor Hall and Brenden Queen Split Twin Races at Langley Speedway

Hampton, VA – In a stacked field of 18 Late Model Stock Cars, Greg Edwards of Poquoson, VA, put up a time of 15.729 to capture his first pole of the season. Brenden Queen, Danny Edwards Jr, Peyton Sellers, and Connor Hall rounded out the starting five for the first of two 70-lap races of the night.

Once the green flag flew, Greg Edwards got out to an early lead over Chesapeake native Brenden Queen, and brother Danny Edwards Jr. Danny ended up battling Queen for the second position and getting around him as problems began to develop for Queen who was freight trained on the bottom groove before settling back into the ninth position. From there, Queen would drop to the rear of the field and pull his car to pit road with issues under the hood. The issue would put an early end to his chances of victory in the first race.

Looking back towards the front, Greg Edwards kept a solid lead over brother Danny Edwards as the battle for fifth between Peyton Sellers, Nick Sanchez and Terry Carroll began to heat up.

The first caution of the night came out on lap 14 as Craig Eastep took a spin coming out of turn two. On the following restart, Rodney Boyd, Cameron Bowen, Duane Shreeves, and Rick Gdovic all got into a big wreck going into turn two. This incident would end Shreeves, Gdovic, and Bowen’s night for the first race, while Boyd was able to continue.

Green flag would fly and Edwards took off to another lead as the battle for third began to heat up between Hall and Sanchez. Danny would follow in behind Greg but just couldn’t quite get to his bumper to make a move.

Lap 20 came on the scoreboard and your top five were Greg Edwards, Danny Edwards, Conor Hall, Nick Sanchez, and Justin Carroll. After Hall made his was past Sanchez, he had made his way to Danny’s back bumper in no time resulting in a heated side by side, back and forth battle for second position.

Throughout the field, battles were being created everywhere. Zach Lightfoot, Thomas Marks, and Peyton Sellers began to battle for the eighth position for multiple laps leading to Sellers getting the spot. Hall set his eyes on Greg as he gradually began to close the gap for the lead. Lap traffic became a big factor as they were giving Greg no help and allowing Hall to make a move. As lap 51 went up in lights we saw Connor Hall finally take the lead after getting past Greg. Danny began to battle Greg for second which allowed Hall to pull away from the field. With clean air in front of Hall, it was smooth sailing to the checkered flag. Hall picked up his second consecutive win of the season as Greg Edwards, Danny Edwards, Nick Sanchez, and Justin Carroll rounded out your top five finishers.

With the NASCAR rules, on twin nights the top eight from the first race are inverted, this put Rev Racing’s Brooke Storer on the pole for twin number two. Terry Carroll, Peyton Sellers, Justin Carroll, and Nick Sanchez were your starting five.

Once the green flag flew it would be Terry Carroll who jumped out to the early lead followed by his son, Justin. Storer was quickly shuffled back through the field, finally finding a place in eighth. Sanchez would battle Sellers for position eventually giving a little nudge and took third, Danny Edwards Jr would follow right behind him. Sellers would also fall victim to the second groove, and if you know Langley, you know that’s not where you want to be unless your name is Matt Waltz. Sellers finally found a spot to get back down to the inside lane but, unfortunately, it would be eighth position.

Justin Carrol took the lead from dad Terry and immediately put some distance between him and the field. Sanchez putting on an impressive debut at Langley looked to get past Terry for second as well. Just twelve laps in and after starting last due to issues in the first race, Brenden Queen had made his way all the way up to the third position. Just like Sellers, Terry got stuck on the outside line and fell back into seventh position.

Just shy of halfway and Queen had closed the gap and was all over the leaders back bumper giving him a nudge and taking the lead. Queen then had his work cut out for him As the started to catch lap traffic already. Luckily they made it easy for Queen to get by and build a gap between him and Justin who would immediately have focus his attention on Sanchez but before he could make a move a caution would fly. Reason for the caution was contact between Lightfoot and Storer. Lightfoot would spin in turn three.

On the restart, Queen took off as Justin fell back into second and, winner of race number one, Hall took third. Hall then looked to take second, however, Justin did no go without a fight on the outside line. This battle allowed Queen to build a few car length lead over the field and also allowed Greg to make his way into the battle for second. Sanchez also wanted part of the battle as he ended up taking second from everyone. This had allowed Queen a half a straightaway lead over Sanchez with just ten laps to go.

Hall had a mirror full of Greg Edwards front bumper as he did everything he could to hold onto the third position. Justin Carroll also had his hands full with Danny, Sellers, and Terry all wanting the fifth position. Greg still throwing everything he had at Halls back bumper but Hall would not budge and held onto third.

The white flag flew for Queen as he was hoping for no trouble between now and turn four. Greg finally was able to make the last lap pass on Hall for third after multiple laps of battle. The checkered flag flew and it was Brenden “Butterbean” Queen picking up his first ever Late Model series win at Langley Speedway. Nick Sanchez, Greg Edwards, Connor Hall, and Peyton Sellers round out the top five finishers.
