SAM ARD 150: Barker Makes It Five In A Row At South Boston Speedway

SOUTH BOSTON, VA. - dam Barker continues to be virtually unstoppable at South Boston Speedway.

Barker, from Hurt, Va. outran 2005 South Boston Speedway and NASCAR Weekly Series national champion Peyton Sellers of Danville, Va. in a two-lap shootout following the race's final caution period to win the Sam Ard 150 NASCAR Late Model Stock Car race here Saturday night at South Boston Speedway.

The win was Barker's fifth win in a row here in the Barkhouser Late Model Stock Car Division. Barker's win coupled with a third-place finish by Wayne Ramsey of Amherst, Va. allowed Barker to extend his points lead over Ramsey in the track points standings to an unofficial six point margin.

Sellers, driving a Chevrolet painted to resemble the No. 00 Thomas Brothers County Hams Oldsmobiles formerly driven by Ard, the 1982 South Boston Speedway NASCAR Late Model Sportsman Division and two-time NASCAR Busch Series champion, attempted to make a run at Barker in the final two-lap shootout but fell about three car lengths shy.

Ramsey finished third in a Ford with David Triplett Jr, of Timberlake, N.C. edging Owen Miller of Emporia, Va. in the closing laps to take fourth place.

Greg Edwards of Poquoson, Va., Eddie Johnson of Midlothian, Va., Jonathan Bailey of Keysville, Va., rounded out the top eight finishers, all of whom finished on the lead lap. Scott Turlington of Richmond, Va. and John Brown rounded out the top ten finishers.

Barker averaged 47.608 mph in the race that was slowed by five caution periods.

Saturday night's Sam Ard 150 was a tribute to and benefit event for Ard who is recovering from injuries sustained in a recent ATV accident and has been stricken with Alzheimer's Disease. Ard's wife has been victimized by an eye disorder and the family has been facing tough circumstances in recent years.

The speedway donated $2 from each adult general admission ticket sold for the race to the Ard family.

Ard's son, Robert Ard, was in attendance at the event. Also attending the event was former South Boston Speedway and NASCAR Weekly Series national champion, Barry Beggarly of Pelham, N.C.
