Barker Takes Craftsman 150 Win At South Boston Speedway

SOUTH BOSTON, VA. - Adam Barker of Hurt, Va. made it two wins in a row Saturday night, winning the Craftsman 150 here at South Boston Speedway.  Barker, driving a Chevrolet, held off Rodney Cook of Reidsville, N.C.  in a two-lap sprint to the finish that followed the last of the race's five caution periods to get the win in the Barkhouser Late Model Stock Car Division. His margin of victory was .833 second or about three car lengths.

Wayne Ramsey of Amherst, Va. finished third with Eddie Johnson of Midlothian, Va. and C.E. Falk III of Virginia Beach, Va. rounding out the top five finishers.  Jason Dickerson of Ruckersville, Va., Richard Storm of Partlow, Va., Scott Turlington of Richmond, Va. and Matt Lofton of Timberlake, N.C. and Owen Miller of Emporia, Va. completed the top ten finishers.

Only the top five finishers were on the lead lap at the end of the race.

Barker started on the pole and led the entire event. The Hurt, Va. resident built comfortable leads on several occasions only to have to fight off Cook and Ramsey in two restarts thanks to a pair of late-race crashes that pushed the race to an extended 160-lap distance to provide a two-lap green-flag dash to the finish. Twenty-six cars started the race but a rash of mishaps and attrition left just over half of the field on the track at the end. Barker averaged 51.910 mph in the race that took an hour and 14 minutes to complete.

Watkins Takes Pure Stock Win

Defending Budweiser Pure Stock Division champion Chuck Watkins of Stem, N.C. picked up his second win of the season in the 30-lap race.

Watkins took the lead from Jarrett Milam of Ringgold, Va. with seven laps to go and held on the rest of the way to take the win.

Milam finished second and Courtney Crosby of Scottsburg, Va. finished third. However, both were disqualified by NASCAR officials after they
refused to submit their cars to a post-race inspection.

As a result, William Ridgway of Burlington, N.C. was elevated to second place with Joey Throckmorton of Scottsburg, Va., Chris Seay of Ringgold, Va. and Lee Anderson of Gladys, Va. rounding out the top five finishers in the final rundown.

Smith Takes Southern Vintage Modifieds Race

Randy Smith of Bassett, Va. started on the pole and led all the way in winning the 25-lap race for the Southern Vintage Modifieds Racing Association.  Smith had his hands full the entire race, especially at the end, when a caution flag with one lap to go created a two-lap green-flag dash to the finish. The late caution period didn't derail his effort, though, as he held off Rodney Cook of Reidsville, N.C. by a car length with Darryl Lacks of Forest, Va. taking third place, a car length behind Cook.
