Three of the top five finishers in Saturday’s Stadium Stock Series
Race One were Davie County’s A.J. Sanders, Dale Barneycastle and Jason
Keaton, and the same trio is among the top five in points going into
the next race at Bowman Gray Stadium on July 10.

Sanders finished second to Winston-Salem’s Brandon Brendle. After
third-place Charlie Curry of Lexington, there was Barneycastle in fourth
and Keaton in fifth. Davie County’s Jason Tutterow and Andrew Sanders
were 20th and 21st, respectively.

The points race is extremely close. Barneycastle is third at 406,
just two behind the co-leaders. Keaton is fourth at 394. A.J. Sanders is
fifth at 378. Stephen Sanders is 12th at 298. Andrew Sanders is tied
for 17th at 248.

Who will step up July 10? Barneycastle could win the championship
for the second straight year. A.J. Sanders could win the championship
for the second time in five years. Keaton could notch his first title.

The key word: Could. Several could do it. That’s the beauty in
this battle … subscribe to the Davie County Enterprise, P.O. Box 4639,
