Sellers scores 3rd straight win and 10th overall this season at South Boston Speedway Saturday night

SOUTH BOSTON, VA. — Peyton Sellers of Danville, Va. is on a mission.

And, following another victory Saturday night at South Boston Speedway, that mission can possibly still be accomplished.

Sellers started third in a 26-car field of Barkhouser Late Model Stock Car Division rides Saturday night. He motored to the front in just three laps and held on the rest of the way to claim a victory in the 150-lap event, which was the featured attraction of the Dodge presents Back to School Night race program.

The victory was the third straight for Sellers and his 10th NASCAR Dodge Weekly Series triumph of the campaign at the four-tenths mile asphalt oval.

Sellers, who has 13 overall victories for the 2005 season, leads the chase for the NASCAR crown at America's Hometown Track and he is also strongly contending for a division and national crown under the NASCAR Dodge Weekly Series banner.

Owen Miller of Emporia, Va. started sixth in the race, but roared through the pack to gain a runner-up finish, while Drew Herring of Benson, N.C., who sits second in the title chase at South Boston, motored to a third-place finish.

Pole sitter Justin Johnson of Roxboro, N.C. finished fourth in the race and was followed by hard-charging Brandon Butler of Petersburg, Va. in fifth place.

Wayne Ramsey of Amherst, Va. started the race from the outside position on the front row and wound up sixth, while Ronald Hill of Rougemont, N.C. surged from a 14th starting spot to place seventh.

Rodney Cook of Reidsville, N.C. finished in eighth place and was followed in the top 10 by Scott Worley of Long Island, Va. in the ninth slot and Frank Deiny, Jr. of Mechanicsville, Va. in 10th place.

The first caution of the night flew on lap five when a multi-car wreck took place in turn four. Following a red-flag period to clean up the track, the drivers went on a green flag run until lap 111.

In all, the race was slowed by five cautions, the last of which set up a 10-lap shootout to the checkered flag.

Bailey holds off hard-charging Snow to secure 8th Limited Sportsman victory of the season

Jonathan Bailey of Keysville, Va. picked up his eighth victory of the season in the 50-lap race for the Limited Sportsman Division competitors, however, it was a second-place run by Danville, Va. driver Justin Snow that caught the attention of most people.

Snow posted the best qualifying run during time trials, but was sent to the rear of the 18-car field after failing a post-qualifying inspection due to tire tread width.

Snow avoided a multi-car crash on the opening lap of the race and quickly found himself in 14th place. Snow was in the top five within seven laps and had gained the second-place position by the 21st circuit.

Bailey, however, held off the division's point leader to score the victory. The win by Bailey enabled him to close within 12 points of Snow in the chase for the division championship.

Bruce Anderson of South Boston, Va. finished third in the race and was followed in the top five by Danny Willis, Jr. of Cluster Springs, Va. in fourth place and Andrew Perry of Hillsborough, N.C. in the fifth position.

Brian Cole of Roxboro, N.C. finished sixth in the field, while Timmy Langford of Amelia, Va. placed seventh and Brian Pembleton of Amelia, Va. garnered an eighth-place run.

Rounding out the top 10 drivers in the race were Tommy Peregoy of Red Oak, Va. in ninth place and Jason Dickerson of Oxford, N.C. in 10th.
