The depth in the NASCAR Whelen All American Series Late Model Stock Car Division at South Boston Speedway has been getting better with each week of the 2019 season.

It took another step in that direction Saturday night when Trey Crews of Halifax, Virginia scored his first career NASCAR Whelen All American Series Late Model Stock Car race win in the Bojangles NASCAR Late Model 100.
Crews, the outside pole starter, held off former NASCAR national champion Lee Pulliam of Alton, Virginia and Nick Sanchez of Miami, Florida in a 37-lap sprint to the finish following the race’s final caution period to capture his first win. His margin of victory was .748-second.

The Halifax, Virginia resident took the lead at the outset and held a lead of almost a quarter of a lap over Pulliam and Sanchez when a caution flag flew for an incident on lap 63. Pulliam and Sanchez gave Crews a hard run for a handful of laps after the restart, but Crews was able to gradually pull away as Pulliam and Sanchez engaged in a close side-by-side battle for second place, a battle Pulliam won by about two car lengths.
Austin Thaxton of South Boston, Virginia finished fourth and Mike Looney of Catawba, Virginia rounded out the top five finishers in the race that took just over an hour to complete.

Daniel Moss of Danville, Virginia and Danny Willis Jr. of South Boston, Virginia split wins in Saturday night’s twin 25-lap Limited Sportsman Division races. The wins marked the second victory of the season for both drivers.
Moss took the lead from Willis with three laps to go as they battled on the restart following the last of the race’s three caution periods and held off Willis to win by .415-second. Drew Dawson of Nathalie, Virginia finished third with Jason Myers of Hurt, Virginia and Brent Younger of South Boston, Virginia rounding out the top five finishers.

Willis started on the outside of the front row in the second race, took the lead from Myers on the second lap and drove to a .685-second win over Moss, who got around Myers to take second place on the next-to-last lap of the race.
