Sellers Caps Season With Wild Win

Stafford Springs, CT — Peyton Sellers emerged from a wild finish with his first career NASCAR Camping World Series East victory at Stafford Motor Speedway Sunday afternoon.

Sellers (No. 44 Casella Waste Systems Chevrolet) won a three-car, final-laps battle with Ted Christopher and Brian Ickler for the victory in the final race of the 2008 season. In the process, Sellers secured a starting position in the postseason NASCAR Toyota All-Star Showdown, scheduled for Jan. 23-24, 2009 at the Toyota Speedway at Irwindale (Calif.).

Ickler (No. 15 Ickler Motorsports Chevrolet) led the field on the final restart on lap 143, but spun into the infield on the restart. The race remained under green and Christopher  (No. 31 Ferguson Contractors/Coca-Cola Chevrolet), who had inherited the lead, appeared to be en route to the win. However, exiting Turn 4 on lap 149, Christopher backed off the gas for Ickler’s car — which was off the pace — and Sellers made contact with Christopher. Sellers was able to recover and continue, while Christopher’s disabled car brought out the yellow/checkered flag.

Ickler ended up in 18th, one lap down, while Christopher was scored 20th, two laps down. Ickler had won the Coors Light Pole Award in Saturday’s qualifying and led a race-high 66 laps Sunday.

Dale Earnhardt, Inc. teammates Trevor Bayne (No. 1 Dale Earnhardt Chevrolet) and Jesus Hernandez (No. 11 DEI Chevrolet) finished second and third. Austin Dillon and Eddie MacDonald rounded out the top five.

Matt Kobyluck, who had already clinched his first NASCAR title in the second-to-last race of the season, capped off his championship season with a seventh-place finish.

Completing the top 10 were Woody Pitkat, Kobyluck, Jody Lavender, Jamie Hayes and Ricky Carmichael.
