10th - Frank Deiny, Jr. #5/South Boston and Motor Mile Frank Deiny, Jr.'s name is synonymous with winning Late Model Stock Car races throughout the region, but this season has been an entirely different tale.

Atlantic Region, 19 July 2004 [cached]
RADFORD, Va. - Frank Deiny Jr. made it a two-for-two weekend, winning at Ace Speedway in Altamahaw, N.C., on Friday night, and at Motor Mile Speedway on Saturday night.
The wins capped off a long week of travel for Frankie as he crossed the Virginia-North Carolina border four times in order to practice and race at each facility.
"We tested some this week," the Mechanicsville, Va., driver said."We wanted to try some things with the Bailey's Pontiac and fine-tune on our setups."
Deiny's teams were able to parlay what they learned in those test sessions into two impressive wins.
On Burlington Times-News night at Ace Speedway, Deiny qualified on the pole with a lap time of 15.95 seconds.After a mandatory redraw for position, he started the in third position.
When the green flag dropped for the 75-lap late model feature, the Bailey's Pontiac quickly moved to the front, taking over the lead on Lap 8.A late-race caution bunched up the field, but Deiny was able to hold on to the lead, taking the checkered flag a couple car lengths ahead of second-place driver, Robert Turner.
Deiny inherited the pole since the starting line up for the late model field was determined by the point standings.
Deiny took over the lead at the start of the race and never looked back.Late-race cautions stripped away his straightaway lead, but he was still able to hold off Chad Harris in a green-white-checkered finish to collect his ninth win of the season (six at MMS, three at Ace).For the second week in a row, Deiny led from flag-to-flag in the late model feature.
"I have to thank the guys on my crew," Deiny said.
Deiny continues to hold the top position in the point standings at both Ace and Motor Mile.
This weekend Deiny will compete in the Setzer-Wiles Memorial, presented by Dick Shirley Chevrolet at Ace Speedway on Friday.Then on Saturday, he will run the WDBJ 100 at Motor Mile Speedway.

Frank Deiny Jr. will be in a different role when SoBo opens 2008 season with running of Easter Bunny 150
SOUTH BOSTON, VA. - Nearly every time Frank Deiny Jr. is at South Boston Speedway he is mentioned as one of the favorites to claim a victory.
Deiny might be in Victory Lane following the season-opening Easter Bunny 150 Saturday afternoon at South Boston Speedway, but it will be as a role of car owner instead of car driver.
Deiny hasn't completely thrown in the towel on racing in NASCAR Whelen All American Series events, but his main focus when it comes to Late Model Stock Car Division competition this season will be on the five cars racing out of the FDJ Motorsports stables in Ashland, Va.
"My main goal here is [Johnson and Gibbs]," Deiny said following a recent practice session at the four-tenths mile asphalt oval.
Deiny will also field Late Model Stock Car teams in 2008 at Motor Mile Speedway in Virginia.
While Deiny will not compete for a track championship as a driver at South Boston Speedway this season, he does plan on strapping on his helmet for "two or three [Late Model] races" during the year.
"I plan on running two or three Late Model races here this year," Deiny said, adding that he was doing so "to keep Justin and Dude honest. I can't let them show me up too much," he joked.
The 34-year-old Deiny definitely has plenty of experience in his knowledge bank when it comes to South Boston Speedway. In 2001, Deiny claimed the Late Model Stock Car Championship at South Boston Speedway for the second of five career track titles he has secured. He also has recorded victories in over 100 Late Model Stock Car Division races during his years behind the wheel.
"I stopped counting when I got to 100," Deiny said. "It's more than that, but I'm not sure how much more."
The goal for Deiny now, however, is to begin collecting victories as a car owner.
"That would be nice," Deiny said.

That's exactly what unfolded in last weeks 150-lap Late Model Stock Car event at Motor Mile Speedway when in the final laps a dominating run for Frank Deiny was squelched by a last lap bump and run by two-time NASCAR Whelen All-American Series National Champion, Philip Morris.
The post race festivities were nothing short of exciting either as the two teams exchanged words, water bottles were tossed and the two drivers sat nose to nose in victory lane before Deiny leaned into Morris' window to let him know of his displeasure. No punches were thrown, nobody got hurt(if you don't count Deiny's feelings) ... it was simply short track racing at it's finest between two of the greatest racers who've ever taken to the 4/10 mile track.
Those two however weren't the only two people not exactly excited about one of their competitors and while everyone remained calm and left the main story to Morris and Deiny, we're going to give you a little insight into everything else along with some strong words from Deiny and Morris' view of the whole deal.
To say that Frank Deiny, Jr. wasn't happy about the contact between himself and Philip Morris would be an understatement as the veteran driver who was making a return to full-time Late Model Stock Car racing this season didn't mince words at all following the race.
"I don't know why[Deiny's] car wouldn't go; it looked like he was just parked in the corner. I had the train behind me ... it was time to go."
Certainly the bad blood that was created on Saturday night would continue to spill over into the early week right??? Absolutely as Deiny continued to make it known that he wasn't about to roll over and forget about last week.
"The 26 will not win a championship, I can promise you that," stated Deiny. "I'm gonna hit him as hard as he hit me, and I want to see if he has the ability to save it like I do. I saved mine; the question is can he save his?"
"We've had great battles in the past, and I did have a lot of respect for him. We've moved each other out of the way before---there's an art form to it," explained Deiny. "I was planning on him being aggressive, but I was planning on him using his ability to try and beat me. That's why I was upset; it took no ability to do what he did. He's a much better driver than that."
Morris still had the same feelings about the incident earlier this week himself as the veteran driver didn't show any remorse for the contact with Deiny.
"I was just hoping for an opportunity for somebody to open the door, and the way I look at it, [Deiny] opened the door for me," Morris explained.
Brandon Dean has found himself on the verge of greatness nearly all season as the young driver has been racing around the top five all season long against some of the biggest names in the business like the above mentioned Morris and Deiny.
Chad Harris was once the most formidable candidate in many people's mind that would challenge Morris for this years title, but while Frank Deiny has been emerging as the strongest challenger late in the season, Harris lost a little ground on Saturday night.
Pennington seems to have made the most of his switch to FDJ Motorsports, which puts him under the watchful eye of points leader, Frank Deiny, who owns FDJ Motorsports.
