Another week, another sighting of Anthony Anders on top of the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series national standings.

Despite not racing last week, the Easley, S.C. Late Model driver holds a massive lead over the country, with 644 points.

The 43-year old Anders has 13 wins, 20 top-five’s and 21 top-10’s in 22 starts this year between Greenville (S.C.) Pickens Speedway, Anderson (S.C.) Motor Speedway, Myrtle Beach (S.C.) Speedway and Hickory (N.C.) Motor Speedway.

Under the point structure for the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Division I standings, a race winner receives two points for every car in the event up to 18 cars. Second place receives two fewer points and so on through the field. Three bonus points will be awarded to a race winner with a single-digit starting position and five bonus points will be awarded to a race winner with a double-digit starting position.

Peyton Sellers of Danville, Va. remained in second this week, cutting into Anders’ lead by 66 points.

Sellers has five wins, 14 top-five’s and 15 top-10’s in 15 starts this year between Caraway Speedway in Sophia, N.C., South Boston (Va.) Speedway and Motor Mile in Radford, Va.

Two-time defending national champion Lee Pulliam of Semora, N.C. remained third in standings with 507 points. Pulliam has nine victories and 13 top five’s in 16 starts this year between Southern National Motorsports Park in Kenly, N.C., South Boston and Motor Mile.

Wallingford’s Keith Rocco, the 2010 NASCAR Whelen All-American Series champion who has finished in the top-four of the national standings for the last seven consecutive years, jumped from 10th to seventh this week after two runner-up finishes in the SK Modified action last week at the Waterford Speedbowl and Thompson Speedway.

Rocco, who competes full-time in the SK Modified divisions at the Waterford Speedbowl, Stafford Motor Speedway and Thompson Speedway, has four victories, 12 top-five’s and 13 top-10’s over 13 starts this year for 438 points.

Ryan Preece of Berlin, who competes full-time in the SK Modified divisions at Stafford and Thompson, part-time at Waterford and part-time in the Tour Type Modified division at Riverhead (N.Y.) Raceway, leaped from 14th to eighth nationally after sweeping wins a pair of SK Modified division features last Thursday at Thompson. Preece has 431 points behind five victories, 12 top-five’s and 14-top’s in 14 starts this year.
