Bailey's will sponsor June 25 racing action at SoBo
SOUTH BOSTON, VA. — South Boston Speedway and Bailey's Cigarettes have worked hand-in-hand for years to bring some of the best short track racing action to fans in the Southeast.
This week, South Boston Speedway officials announced that the partnership between the track and Bailey's Cigarettes will continue again this season.
"Bailey's has had a huge impact on racing at the short track level and at South Boston Speedway," Cathy Rice, General Manager at South Boston Speedway, said. "Mac Bailey and his entire family enjoy racing and have been willing to promote the sport and help short track racing continue in its popularity. Sponsors like Bailey's Cigarettes are key to this sport and are appreciated very much."
In past years, Bailey's has sponsored the season-ending Late Model Stock Car race at the historic four-tenths mile oval. This year, the cigarette manufacturing company, located in Keysville, Va., a short distance away from America's Hometown Track, will sponsor the June 25 event at South Boston Speedway.
The June 25 event will also feature the speedways annual Fireworks Extravaganza in honor of the July 4 holiday.
"We are pleased to announce that Bailey's will sponsor our race on June 25," Rice said. "The fans and drivers always look forward to that race and, of course, the fireworks that follow at the end of the night."
Slated for racing action on June 25 will be the Barkhouser Late Model Stock Car Division competitors, the Limited Sportsman Division drivers and the competitors in the Virginia Army National Guard Pure Stock Division.
The Late Model Stock Cars will hit the asphalt for a 200-lap race on June 25. The Limited Sportsman Division will compete in a 100-lap shootout and the Pure Stock Division drivers will test the oval for 50 circuits.
