Layne Riggs is holding the upper hand in the NASCAR Advance Auto Parts Weekly Series Late Model Stock Car Division at South Boston Speedway.

The Bahama, NC resident made it three victories in as many races, edging defending NASCAR Advance Auto Parts Weekly Series National Champion Peyton Sellers of Danville, VA to win Saturday afternoon’s 100-lap NASCAR Advance Auto Parts Weekly Series Late Model Stock Car Division race at South Boston Speedway.

Riggs had to do it the hard way, having to start mid-field in the 22-car starting field under South Boston Speedway’s handicapping system after having won two consecutive races. He worked his way past Jacob Borst to take second place on lap 47 and began chipping away at Sellers’ lead. With 18 laps to go, Riggs worked his way past Sellers. Once in front, Riggs never relinquished the lead.

“I knew I was catching him (Sellers) slowly,” Riggs noted. “He’s a tough guy to race with. He doesn’t show his cards much. I couldn’t tell if he was playing with me a little bit or if he was really slowing down. He was losing pace, and I was gaining pace at the same time. We did it all again. I hope we keep getting these victories.”

Borst, from Elon, NC, took third place with Mark Wertz of Chesapeake, VA and Mason Bailey rounding out the top five finishers. John Goin, Landon Pembelton, Camden Gullie, Chris Denny and Daniel Moss rounded out the Top 10 finishers.
