GCR presents SunTrust 150: Eddie Johnson 'flat had the best car' Saturday night in Late Model Stock Car action at South Boston Speedway 

SOUTH BOSTON, VA. — Eddie Johnson didn't need any luck Saturday night at South Boston Speedway.

Earlier this season, Johnson, who resides in Midlothian, Va. collected his first Barkhouser Late Model Stock Car Division win of the campaign after he surged to first place from the fourth position when the lead three cars on the track got tangled in an accident.

Saturday night, Johnson posted his second win of the season at the four-tenths mile asphalt oval, but he didn't need any assistance. After qualifying fourth, Johnson battled to the front by the 105th circuit and pulled away to collect the win in the featured attraction of the SunTrust 150 presented by GCR NASCAR Dodge Weekly Series race program.

"I got a little lucky in that first win here," Johnson said after the race. "But tonight, I flat had the best car here."

Wayne Ramsey of Amherst, Va. placed second, exactly where he started the event. Ramsey, however, slipped back to third in the early stages of the race before battling into the runner-up slot on lap 137.

Owen Miller of Emporia, Va. garnered a third-place finish in the race and pulled to within eight points of division points leader Drew Herring of Benson, N.C. with one race remaining in the title chase this season at South Boston Speedway.

Herring qualified ninth in the field and wound up posting an eighth-place finish. When the night began, Herring owned an 18-point lead over a second-place tie between Miller and Cash.

Rodney Cook of Reidsville, N.C. started eighth in the race, but rallied for a fourth-place finish, while Jon Denning of Springfield, N.J. rounded out the top five finishers in the event.

Nick Smith of Hampton, Va. was sixth at the checkered flag, while pole position winner David Triplett, Jr. of Timberlake, N.C. was seventh. Cliff Daniels of Smithfield, Va. placed ninth, just behind Herring. Daniels was the final driver on the lead lap.

Cash rounded out the top 10 competitors in the race and was one lap down at the close of the race.

The race was slowed by two cautions, the first of which came out on lap 119 when Jonathan Bailey of Keysville, Va. went spinning in the backstretch.

The second caution flag flew on lap 137 when Adam Barker of Hurt, Va. went spinning in turn four after battling Ramsey for second place. Earlier, Barker led the race from lap nine through the 104th circuit.
