Can Sellers make it two, maybe three, Late Model wins in a row Saturday night at South Boston Speedway?

SOUTH BOSTON, VA. -- Peyton Sellers hopes to double his fun Saturday night at South Boston Speedway.

The Danville, Va. driver led wire-to-wire to win the season-opening, 200-lap Late Model Stock Car Division event at the four-tenths mile asphalt oval. Saturday night, he'll have a chance to pick up two victories.

The Late Model Stock Car Division drivers will run twin 110-lap races to highlight Saturday night's NASCAR Dodge Weekly Series program at South Boston Speedway.

The first race of the night is set to get the green flag at 7 p.m.

"We're looking forward to it," Sellers said. "Right now, we're the only car that can win them all."

While Sellers joked about winning every race, he knows the chances of that happening are slim and none with the load of competition invading South Boston Speedway this season.

"I think we caught them sleeping in the first race," Sellers said. "We hope we can stay on top again this week, but the competition at South Boston is so tough."

In fact, it's probably the best around, according to Sellers.

"South Boston Speedway is the best place on the East Coast to win a championship," Sellers said. "And, right now, that's what we're looking to do -- run for the championship.

"The pressure is off us now," Sellers added. "We got that win under our belt. Now, we can go out there and have some fun."

In the first Late Model Stock Car Division race of the season, Sellers led every lap, but not without a huge challenge from Woody Howard.

"For 190 laps, he was right on my bumper," Sellers said. "That's the way I like to win them, good, tough racing. The Lord was definitely riding with me that night. Everything went perfect for us."

In addition to the twin 110-lap Late Model Stock Car Division races, Saturday's race program at South Boston will also include twin 50-lap races for the Barkhouser Limited Sportsman Division drivers and 30-lap races for the Pure Stock Division and Grand Stock Division competitors.

Pit gates will open at 1 p.m. on Saturday and time trials will begin at 5 p.m., following practice sessions for all divisions.

Adult admission for Saturday's race will be $8 up to 6:30 p.m. and $10 after that point. Youth, ages 10 through 15, will be admitted for $5 and children under the age of 10 will be admitted free with a paid adult.
