Motivated Sellers: South Boston's Late Model Leader Tops

Nascar Dodge Weekly Series Division I Standings

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (May 10, 2005) – After recording five wins in his first 10 races at South Boston (Va.) Speedway, Peyton Sellers has emerged atop the point standings for NASCAR Dodge Weekly Series Division I. Sellers, of Danville, Va., has accumulated 598 points towards NASCAR's Division I championship, which is contested between drivers at 15 participating race tracks.

Perennial championship contender Frank Deiny Jr., of Mechanicsville, Va., is ranked second, with 484 points earned after recording two wins in eight starts at Motor Mile Speedway in Radford, Va.

High Point, N.C. driver Travis Swaim, the reigning Late Model track champion at Caraway Speedway in Asheboro, N.C., is ranked third while Lanier National Speedway's Clay Dale and Lakeside Speedway's Tom Charles round out this week's top five.

The NASCAR Dodge Weekly Series championship will be decided under a new format in 2005, in which drivers receive points for each feature event they compete in, in each track's top class. Drivers can earn 50 points for a win, 48 points for second place, 46 for third place and so on. In addition, bonus points are awarded to drivers with a greater number of cars in the field at their home track. Drivers who compete in a race with between 15-20 cars receive 10 bonus points each, while drivers competing in fields of 21 or more cars receive 20 bonus points each.

Participating tracks are grouped into four divisions, which are not based on geography and contain 15-17 tracks each. Divisional points will be tallied until the NASCAR Dodge Weekly Series season concludes Sept. 18 and the driver with the highest point total in the division wins the divisional championship. Each of the four divisional champions can collect a $25,000 bonus for the title.
