South Boston Speedway has been represented well thus far at Daytona
SOUTH BOSTON, VA. — The eyes of NASCAR racing fans across the country are focused on Daytona Beach, Fla. during SpeedWeeks. And, thus far, South Boston Speedway has been represented well. Elliott Sadler took the first victory in the duel, posting atop the leader board in his 150 mile qualifier at the "World Center of Motorsports".
South Boston Va. native Jeff Burton, a former Late Model Stock Car Division competitor at America's Hometown Track swiped the pole position for the running of this weekend's Daytona 500.
Jeff Burton will be trying to visit Victory Lane in NASCAR's biggest event of the season just as his brother, Ward, did a few years back.
Shortly after Jeff Burton captured the pole position for the Daytona 500, Denny Hamlin, who competed in the Late Model Stock Car ranks two seasons ago at South Boston Speedway, scored a triumph in the Budweiser Shootout Sunday afternoon.
Burton and Hamlin won't be on the track on March 25 when South Boston Speedway opens the 2006 racing season, but a host of other talented drivers will take to the four-tenths mile asphalt oval to try and find their place in history.
The season-opening event at South Boston Speedway will get underway with a special starting time of 3 p.m.
