THORNBURG, Va. – Peyton Sellers was untouchable Saturday night at Dominion Raceway, sweeping a pair of 60-lap late model stock car features after racing his way through the field in both events.

The only person who seemed to have anything for him all night was Mike Looney, who started on the pole in the first feature. Looney dominated much of the first feature, but was constantly hounded by Sellers.

Looney led until the white flag. Heading into turn one Sellers gave Looney a bump to move him up the track, which was just enough room for Sellers to drive under him and run side by side down the backstretch. Sellers had the better line coming out of four and took the checkered for his sixth win of the year.  Looney came home second, followed by Daniel Silvestri, John Goin and Aaron Donnelly.

Sellers started eighth in the second race after the mandatory invert, but it took only 30 laps for him to pick his way through the field to get to the front. He would survive four cautions and a green-white-checkered finish to fend off Mike Diaz on the last lap to win his seventh race of the year.

Looney finished third, followed by Goin and Sergio Pena.

Bobby Curtis went flag-to-flag to win the 40-lap Dominion Stocks feature. Tommy Jackson took the Legend car main event and Ryley Music won the bandolero feature. Kris Kurtz won the mini stock feature, with Kim Oliver taking a victory in the Any Car class and Fred Daniels scoring a win in the Mini Cup class.
