Reigning NASCAR South Boston Speedway late model track champion Wayne Ramsey returned to Victory lane Saturday night. Ramsey, who started the 2009 season on the sidelines due to sponsorship issues, capitalized on a lap 57 incident that took two-time national champion Philip Morris out of contention. From there, Ramsey cruised to his first late model win of the season, rolling to a 1.218-second win over David Quackenbush. Nick Smith battled back from the incident from Morris and salvaged third.

NASCAR like it used to be and still ought to be. Plenty of old-fashioned, fender-bending, traditional short track action took place Saturday night in the Twin 50 limited sportsman races at South Boston Speedway. Brian Pembelton extended his points’ lead in this heart-stopping series and won the second 50-lapper, while local sensation Jeb Burton almost won the first race.

Pulling double duty

Jeb Burton at VIR Sunday
It’s all part of the learning curve for a young racer. Jeb Burton pulled double duty this past weekend, competing in NASCAR short track racing at South Boston Speedway on Saturday night and on a specialized short track circuit Sunday at Virginia International Raceway Sunday. Burton, still only 16, is further ahead in NASCAR racing at SBS. He finished fourth in limited sportsman action at SBS, and 23rd in the Volkswagen Jetta TDI event at VIR.

Donohue reviled by competition

David Donohue left Virginia International Raceway on Saturday reviled by two of his competitors after a bruising finish to the feature race, the Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Daytona Prototypes feature. Nevertheless, this controversy will likely work itself out, once cooler heads prevail. As matters stand, Donohue is having an outstanding season so far, with a win for the Brumos Porsche no. 58 entry at the season-opener Rolex 24 at Daytona, followed by a third-place podium finish at VIR Saturday.
