Agnew Wins Hooters Pro Cup Race; Morris Takes Win In Late Model Action

SOUTH BOSTON, VA. - Jeff Agnew scored his first win of the season here Saturday night in the Miller Lite 250 Presented By Halifax County Tourism USAR Hooters Pro Cup Series Northern Division race.

But it was Gary St. Amant that emerged with the Northern Division championship.

Amant, needing to finish eighth or better to clinch the crown, finished third and captured his first career USAR Hooters Pro Cup Series regular-season championship.

Brandon Ward of Winston-Salem, N.C. finished 11th and wrapped up the USAR Hooters Pro Cup Series Northern Division Rookie of the Year title.

Agnew of Floyd, Va., a former competitor at South Boston Speedway in NASCAR Late Model Stock Car Division races, started eighth and ran with the lead pack for much of the night.

He took the lead from defending USAR Hooters Pro Cup Series champion Benny Gordon of DuBois, Pa. On lap 147 and held on the rest of the way, pulling away from his closest challengers, Gordon and St. Amant, on the race's final restart with eight laps to go to secure the win.

Gordon took second and trailed Agnew by 1.266 seconds at the finish. St. Amant, from Delaware, OH, finished third with Derek Kale of Winfield, W.Va. and Matt Carter of Denver, N.C. rounding out the top five finishers.

Jody Lavender of Hartsville, S.C., Jeff Fultz of Troutman, N.C., A.J. Frank of Blufton, S.C., Sam Fullone of North Collins, N.Y. and Shane Wallace of Mooresville, N.C. rounded out the top ten finishers.

There were three lead changes among four drivers with Agnew leading the final 104 laps of the 250-lap, 100-mile race. Pole winner Johnny Rumley of Summerfield, N.C. led the first 84 laps. Wallace inherited the lead on lap 85 when several of the race's frontrunners pitted for tires and fuel and held it until Gordon wrestled the lead away from him on lap 89.

Gordon, who needed to win the race, lead at the halfway mark and secure all possible bonus points in order to have a true shot at the title, took the lead on lap 89 and held it until Agnew sped to the front of the pack for good on lap 147.

Agnew averaged 59.139 mph in the race that was slowed by 12 caution periods that consumed 66 laps.

Morris Wins Late Model Stock Car Race

Philip Morris of Ruckersville, Va. started on the pole and led all the way to win the 150-lap race for the Barkhouser Late Model Stock Car Division.

The win was Morris' first win of the season here, making him the fifth different driver to win in the Barkhouser Late Model Stock Car Division here this season.

Morris, driving a Dodge, was cruising about a quarter of a lap ahead of Adam Barker, Eddie Johnson, and Wayne Ramsey who were battling for second place, when the race's final caution came out on lap 144 for a mishap involving C.E. Falk and David Triplett Jr.

That mishap set up a two-lap green-flag sprint to the finish, a sprint that Morris easily won. His margin of victory over Barker was .614 second.

Johnson, of Midlothian, Va., finished third with Ramsey, from Amherst, Va. and Jon Denning of Springfield, N.J. rounding out the top five finishers.

Ronald Hill of Rougemont, N.C., Jonathan Bailey of Keysville, Va., Owen Miller of Emporia, Va, Jerame Donley of Winston-Salem, N.C. and Falk, from Virginia Beach, Va. rounded out the top ten.

Morris averaged 64.155 mph in the race that took 56 minutes and 17 seconds to complete. The race was slowed by five caution periods.
