Saturday, 10:17pm ET - Jay Middleton has won the ASA Southeast Asphalt Tour's SENECA Tobaccoville USA 100 at Dillon. Stay tuned for more.
Saturday, 10:15pm ET - GREEN FLAG is out and Middleton got one heck of a jump. He's up four carlengths by the first completed lap, making it seven to go.
Saturday, 10:13pm ET - YELLOW FLAG on lap 92 as David Elliott and Chris Fontaine have made contact in turn four. Fontaine spun his #47, bringing out the yellow.
The yellow flag ruined a torrid battle between Peltier and Middleton. Peltier was all over Middleton's back bumper, looking both high and low into and off the corners, but Peltier was not able to find a way by to this point. We'll have a restart with just eight laps remaining to settle this one.
Saturday, 10:09pm ET - 15 to go. Peltier is still hunting for a way by Middleton. Satterfield, Mattox, Fontaine and Elliot follow about 10 carlengths behind the top-two.
Saturday, 10:06pm ET - With only 25 to go, Middleton and Peltier still run bumper-to-bumper up front. Satterfield now has some pressure from Mattox for third.
Saturday, 10:05pm ET - GREEN FLAG is back out and Preston Peltier is all over the back bumper of Jay Middleton up front on lap 70.
Saturday, 10:04pm ET - GREEN FLAG is out and Middleton got the jump, but John Bolen appeared to not come up to speed. Bolen stalled his car in turn three, bringing out the YELLOW FLAG on lap 66. With Bolen stacking the field up, there were some swapping of spots, as Middleton now leads Preston Peltier, Taylor Satterfield, Jess Mattox, Chris Fontaine and David Elliott. Fontaine, who was third, got stuck behind Bolen on the restart and lost several spots.
Bolen has made it to pit road and the team has removed the left-rear tire, indicating a potential battery issue, then the team went to changing the right-front tire.
Saturday, 9:54pm ET - YELLOW FLAG lap 65. Told ya there was a battle brewing between Cope and McCurley. The two made contact, turning both sideways and leaving Mullinax, Fowler and Gene Kirila nowhere to go. Fowler, Mullinax and Kirila were involved in a chain-reaction stackup when Cope and McCurley went sideways. Fowler and Mullinax have taken their cars to pit road, while Kirila is going off on the hook.
The caution erases Middleton's full-straight-away lead over John Bolen. With just 35 laps to go, it's Middleton, Bolen, Fontaine, Peltier, Satterfield, Mattox, Elliott, Altman, McCurley, Cope and Jerrod Foley. Kyle Fowler has returned at the tail end of the field. Those names listed are the only cars left on the racetrack.
Saturday, 9:45pm ET - There's a decent battle for ninth brewing as Travis Cope has Stephen McCurley in his radar on lap 60. Jeremy Mullinax and Kyle Fowler follow in 11th and 12th waiting to see what happens ahead of them.
Saturday, 9:45pm ET - We have quickly reached the halfway point here at Dillon and Jay Middleton continues to be the engineer of the freight-train that is the SENECA Tobaccoville 100. Middleton is up 10 carlengths on John Bolen, while Fontaine, Peltier and Satterfield race by themselves in the top-five.
Saturday, 9:41pm ET - Taylor Satterfield has moved into the top-five by rooting Stephen McCurley out of his way on lap 36. Other than that, it's all single-file racing throughout the field.
Saturday, 9:38pm ET - GREEN FLAG is back out after a lengthy cleanup by the, shall we say, patient DMS track crew and Middleton is still up front.
Saturday, 9:29pm ET - YELLOW FLAG lap 22 as Tyler Milwood has stuffed his #31 into the turn-one wall. Up front, it's Middleton, Bolen, Fontaine, Peltier, McCurley, Taylor Satterfield, Jess Mattox, David Elliott, Jeremy Mullinax, Travis Cope in the top-10. Kyle Fowler and Scotty Ellis are in the top-10 hunt behind them.
Saturday, 9:25pm ET - Swap of second-place as John Bolen has taken the low road around Chris Fontaine in turn three on lap 11. .Middleton now has about a full straight-away lead on Bolen, however.
Saturday, 9:24pm ET - Status quo up front on lap 10, as Middleton has opened up a six-carlength lead over Fontaine and Bolen up front.
Saturday, 9:22pm ET - GREEN FLAG is back out and Middleton still shows the way on the single-file restart. The entire field remains single-file as Eric Wallace has brought his car to pit road.
Saturday, 9:21pm ET - GREEN FLAG is out. Jay Middleton got a jump on Chris Fontaine on the inside to take the lead at the start.
But it didn't take long for the first YELLOW FLAG of the night. On the opening lap, Eric Wallace looped his #9 in turn one. Running order is Middleton, Fontaine, John Bolen, Preston Peltier and Stephen McCurley in the top-five.
Saturday, 9:16pm ET - Engines have fired and we're rolling cars for the pace laps.
Saturday, 9:05pm ET - The ASA Southeast Asphalt Series cars are lined up on the frontstretch and we're about to begin driver introductions.
The crowd is still buzzing about the whild finish to the Pro Challenge Series feature as they await the SENECA Tobaccoville 100. Two of the brightest young stars in the three-quarter scale stock car series put on a classic short-track racing battle at the front. Clint King dominated the event, but Nick Stroupe battled hard in second, searching for a way around King's #07. Stroupe tapped King late in the race, taking the lead momentarily before King retaliated and knocked Stroupe back to second. King held strong by pinching Stroupe high on a series of late double-file restarts to claim the Pro Challenge North Region victory.
