Sellers, Dillon lead East Series

Andy Santerre Motorsports made it a clean sweep in the American Revolution 150 at Greenville-Pickens Speedway late Saturday night.

Driving the No. 44 that Santerre himself piloted to 4 series championships, Peyton Sellers survived overtime to win the NASCAR Camping World East Series opener, his 1st career series victory. Following Sellers to the line was rookie teammate Austin Dillon. The 2 ASM drivers combined to lead all but 22 of the 156 laps in the event.
“Pressure's off,” Sellers said. “I’m in the record books with a pole and a win. What more can you ask for?”
Dillon, the grandson of longtime Sprint Cup Series owner Richard Childress, drove a black No. 3 in his first East Series start.
"It's our first run and that's awesome for Andy Santerre Motorsports," Dillon said. "I think we're going to have a great year. I already got one thing down: We got to lead laps and compete in the front. So now we just have to go out and win one."

Marc Davis and Ben Stancill finished 3rd and 4th, respectively.

Eddie MacDonald began a busy weekend -- he's supposed to make it to Lee USA Speedway sometime today for the ACT Governor's Cup 100 -- with a top-5 run.

NASCAR took the #44 shocks, wonder why?

Santerre is a thief. He stole Cansella from Sean Caisse after he dropped him-scumbag.

44's rear shocks had illegal pistons, very obvious infraction once the shocks were opened

Santerre is no different than any other team owner, they need sponserships to continue to field cars.andy is a local guy who has made it big and one of the few who remembers home.. good luck to his team on a great season.. big deal the shocks were not legal not like hes the only one getting caught..

I don't understand ASM why you wouldn't check your equipment after getting it back from another competitor? Isn't that a no brainer? Doesn't look like they we're very prepared for the season opener.
