McCaskill scores his second Late Model win of season Saturday night at South Boston Speedway

SOUTH BOSTON, VA. — "How about that high line?"

Those were some of the first words out of Deac McCaskill's mouth Saturday night after he won the 150-lap Barkhouser Late Model Stock Car Division race at South Boston Speedway.

The event was the featured attraction of the Charles Anderson Lawn Care present Ladies' Night race program.

The NASCAR Dodge Weekly Series triumph was the second of the season for McCaskill at America's Hometown Track.

The Raleigh, N.C. driver started sixth in the 23-car field, but had worked his way into the lead position after only 42 trips around the four-tenths mile asphalt oval.

During his surge to the front, McCaskill made most of his passes using the outside line on the track.

"I like that outside line," McCaskill said. "The quickest way around this place is the bottom line, but I can build so much momentum up when I use the high side."

Outside pole sitter Peyton Sellers of Danville, Va. grabbed the lead on the opening circuit and stayed in front until McCaskill made his pass. Despite making several side-by-side bids to regain the lead, Sellers had to settle for a second-place finish.

Drew Herring of Benson, N.C. earned his first pole position of the season and motored to a third-place run to remain second behind Sellers in the chase for the track's championship.

Perhaps the most impressive run of the evening came from fourth-place finishing Eddie Johnson of Midlothian, Va., who qualified 23rd for the race, but battled into the top five by the end of the night.

Jonathan Cash of Oxford, N.C. was fifth for the event, while Brandon Butler of Petersburg, Va. was sixth. David Quackenbush of Lorton, Va. was seventh and was followed in the top 10 by Owen Miller of Emporia, Va. in eighth, Wayne Ramsey of Amherst, Va. in ninth and Ryan Rhodes of Sanford, N.C. in 10th.

The race was slowed by four caution periods, the last of which set up a 16-lap shootout to the checkered flag.

Several top contenders experienced woes during the race and had to head to the pits during the event. They included Scott Worley of Long Island, Va. (21st), Justin Johnson of Roxboro, N.C. (23rd), Rodney Cook of Reidsville, N.C. (20th), David Triplett, Jr. of Durham, N.C. (16th) and Keven Wood of Stuart, Va. (18th).

Snow scores eighth Limited Sportsman win, moves into tie for division point lead

Justin Snow of Danville, Va. led from start-to-finish to score his eighth Limited Sportsman Division victory of the season.

Snow started from the pole position after being the top car in qualifying time trials for the ninth time this season. Snow entered the event two points behind runner-up Jonathan Bailey of Keysville, Va., but moved into a tie for the division lead with the victory. Bailey has claimed seven wins in the division this season.

Bailey started on the outside of the front row, but slipped behind South Boston, Va. drive Bruce Anderson on the third lap and was not able to get back to the second slot until the 47th circuit. By that time, Snow had opened an advantage of a half a straightaway.

Anderson wound up third in the 12-car field and was followed by Charles Barnes of Chase City, Va. in fourth and Danville, Va. competitor Kenny Bowes in the fifth position.

Joey Throckmorton takes checkered flag twice, but only gets one Pure Stock win

Joey Throckmorton of Scottsburg, Va. appeared to have posted a pair of victories in twin 30-lap races for the Virginia Army National Guard Pure Stock Division.

A post-race inspection, however, negated the second win of the night for Throckmorton, who entered the night as the leader in the chase for the division championship.

Throckmorton started ninth out of 18 cars in each of the events, but roared to the front each time. Throckmorton collected the lead in the opening event on the 21st lap. In the second race, Throckmorton gained the first-place spot in the 26th lap.

Roxboro, N.C. driver Scott Phillips placed second in the opening race, which was slowed by just one caution period, and was followed by Rodney Pennington of Stem, N.C. in the third-place spot.

Nick Igdalsky of South Boston, Va. placed fourth in the opening race, while Quain Moore of Callands, Va. rounded out the top five performers.

In the nightcap, which was run caution-free, Brandon Baker of Durham, N.C. started 12th, followed Throckmorton across the finish line and was then awarded the victory after the post-race inspection. Pennington was elevated to second place in the revised rundown, while Phillips, Moore and Igdalsky rounded out the top five.
