Allred Gains Win In SBS Pure Stock Division
SOUTH BOSTON, VA - Long Island, Va. resident Nathan Crews’ victory in last Saturday night’s Easter Bunny 150 racing program here at South Boston Speedway was a short-lived one.
South Boston Speedway officials said Tuesday that Crews was disqualified following his win in the second of the night’s pair of 30-lap races for the Budweiser Pure Stock Division. Crews’ car failed to pass the post-race inspection as a result of an unapproved part.
As a result, the second-place finisher in the race, defending division champion Joe Allred III of Scottsburg, Va., was awarded the win. Allred won the night’s first 30-lap Pure Stock Division race.
In addition, track officials said yesterday that a scoring re-check of Saturday night’s 50-lap Limited Sportsman Division race revealed that Chris Crosby of Raleigh, N.C., who had been listed as finishing one lap down in seventh place, did not lose a lap in the race and finished fourth.
As a result, Daniel Moss of Danville, Va., who was listed as the fourth-place finisher, dropped to fifth place in the standings.
NASCAR racing action returns to South Boston Speedway Saturday night with a special event featuring the stars and cars of the NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour and the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Late Model Stock Car Division.
The stars of the touring NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour will be featured in a 150-lap race. Twin 75-lap races for the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Late Model Stock Car Division are also slated as part of the night’s action.
