Fairlawn, VA(July 24, 2012) — To say that Lee Pulliam is on top of the world of Late Model Stock Car racing right now would be a gross understatement.

The Semora, NC driver rebounded from an indefinite suspension from NASCAR to last week claim the points lead in the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series(NWAAS) National Points Standings, despite having to sit out of competition until May 1st. Since returning he’s claimed 14 victories in just 21 starts, including seven wins from July 3rd to July 21st.

His latest run has the looks of a record breaking performance and he has shown little to no signs of slowing down, despite his competition seeming to close in him more every race and especially at his home track of Motor Mile Speedway. However, despite the competition getting better, Pulliam seems to be growing smarter and racing harder and at the end of the day he’s still winning and winning almost every race.

Saturday, July 21st was no different as the young driver drove his car to two more wins on the 4/10 mile track, besting another solid 23-car field. Pulliam’s record at Motor Mile Speedway is without a doubt the most solid two years of racing on the track in it’s 24 year existence. In 30 starts(two in 2010), he’s visited victory lane 21 times, a winning percentage of 70%.

Pulliam’s recent win streak has him staying atop the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series National Points Standings this week where he has 730 points with his 14 wins in 21 starts. Last week he had a slim one point lead on Langley Speedway regular, CE Falk III, but Falk chose not to compete in any races this past weekend in the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series and instead opting to run the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series at Chicagoland Speedway, where he finished 29th.

Falk slipped to third in the standings with NASCAR Whelen Modified Series driver, Keith Rocco taking second. Pulliam’s lead now stands at fifty over Rocco(680), who is three points ahead of Falk(677). Kingsport Speedway points leader, Nate Monteith is currently fifth(647), Southern National Motorsports Park points leader, Deac McCaskill is 7th and former points leader, Anthony Anders is now 8th in points.

Pulliam isn’t looking to slow his roll to the championship down either as he’s expected to pull double duty this weekend, making a start on Friday night at Kingsport Speedway and returning to action at Motor Mile Speedway on Saturday night. Kingsport Speedway has seemed to be Pulliam’s achilles heel this season, in two starts on the track, Pulliam has failed to make it to victory lane, where as in his first starts at South Boston, Southern National and Caraway Speedway, he was easily the victor. will have Five Star Bodies LIVE on Twitter Coverage from Kingsport Speedway on Friday night and post race coverage from Motor Mile Speedway on Saturday night as we continue to watch Pulliam’s quest from suspension to redemption.
