Matt Bowling is on a roll at South Boston Speedway.
Bowling, trying to build his lead in the chase for the NASCAR Whelen All American national title and the South Boston Speedway Late Model Stock Car division title, took the lead from pole winner Mark Wertz on the 41st circuit and fended off his challengers in a 25-lap dash to the finish to win Saturday night’s Southern Virginia Higher Education Center NASCAR Whelen Late Model 100 at South Boston Speedway.
Saturday night’s win was Bowling’s second in his last three starts at South Boston Speedway and was his sixth of the season at the .4-mile oval.
Bobby McCarty of Summerfield, North Carolina finished second, 1.316 seconds behind Bowling with Josh Oakley of Rougemont, North Carolina, Brandon Pierce of Oak Ridge, North Carolina and Wertz, of Chesapeake, Virginia completing the top five finishers.
Nick Smith, Peyton Sellers of Danville, Virginia, Greg Edwards of Poquoson, Virginia, Danny Willis Jr. of South Boston, Virginia and Alex Brock of Chesterfield, Virginia rounded out the top 10 finishers in the 18-car field.
