Italian Delight 150: Barker Wins Italian Delight 150 In Dramatic Fashion

SOUTH BOSTON, VA. - Adam Barker of Hurt, Va. scored his ninth win of the season in the 150-lap race for the Barkhouser Late Model Stock Car Division that highlighted Saturday nights Italian Delight racing program here at South Boston Speedway.

And, he had to take home a battered race car in the process.

Barker, who had trailed C.E. Falk III of Virginia Beach, Va. all race long, found himself in a position to make a bid for the win when the races final caution flag flew on lap 146. The caution allowed Barker to close up behind Falk for the final restart which came on lap 153.

The division points leader jumped up beside Falk on the restart and the pair were side-by-side as they came out of turn four on the final lap.

Barker and Falk made contact as they raced to the checkered flag with Barker getting the nose of his Chevrolet in front as the two cars hit the finish line. The pair made contact one final time at the finish line with the two cars crashing in turn one completing the dramatic ending.

Both cars were heavily damaged as a result of the crash with neither car being able to make the customary appearance in front of Victory Lane.

Barker, who was credited with leading only one lap of the race, the final lap, edged Falk by a scant .085 second.
Wayne Ramsey of Amherst, Va. finished third with Rodney Cook of Reidsville, N.C. and David Triplett Jr. of Timberlake, N.C. rounding out the top five finishers.

Jerame Donley of Winston-Salem, N.C, Eddie Johnson of Midlothian, Va., Deac McCaskill of Raliegh, N.C., Owen Miller of Emporia, Va. and Jonathan Bailey of Keysville, Va. rounded out the top ten finishers.
