What Won the RaceLee Pulliam passed Timothy Peters in the final 10 laps to score his sixth win in the South Boston 200. Danny Willis Jr. led the first 100-laps, but got wrecked on a restart and was never a factor in the finish. Matt Bowling took the lead with 50-laps to go only to be spun from the top spot by Bobby McCarty.
