South Boston Speedway in Virginia was hosting a NASCAR Late Model Stock Car division Twin 75-Lap feature event that ended up with a car owner being flung onto the race track during a late race red flag. Earlier in the night, Philip Morris, defending series national champ, won the first feature with former national champ Lee Pulliam finishing fourth. Those two drivers would get together while battling for 2nd in the second 75-lap feature. The hard fought battle ended with Morris ending up crashed into the turn three wall on lap 70. With the cars stopped under a red flag to clean up the debris, Morris’ car builder, Forrest Reynolds, ran out of the track and attempted to reach inside Pulliam’s car. Pulliam then quickly hit the gas sending Reynolds flying as you can see in the video. It was pretty amazing that he was even able to stand up after that. Reynolds was then escorted out of the track and Pulliam had to restart at the tail of the lead lap cars for causing the caution. Pulliam finished 10th. I thought we learned that going out on to a race track, not as a track official or safety crew personnel and not a driver in a race car, was a very bad idea and a series safety concern. Maybe Mr. Reynolds has now learned this and he is lucky it didn't cost him him life. I am sure we will talk about this incident this week on the Hammer Down Racing Report. Read more about this here.
