Late Model Stock Car race will provide added excitement to USAR Hooters ProCup visit to SoBo Saturday night
SOUTH BOSTON, VA. — The 250-lap race for the drivers in the touring USAR Hooters ProCup Series will be the featured attraction Saturday night when the green flag falls at South Boston Speedway.
While the limelight will be focused on the USAR Hooters ProCup Series drivers, who will be making their second appearance at America's Hometown Track this season, there will also be quite a lot of interest in the 110-lap Barkhouser Late Model Stock Car Division race.
The Late Model Stock Car Division drivers will hit the four-tenths mile asphalt oval shortly after the conclusion of the 250-lap USAR Hooters ProCup Series event.
The Late Model Stock Car Division drivers will be trying to snap a five-race win streak by Drew Herring, who has won seven of the past eight races at South Boston Speedway.
In the 110-lap race for the Late Model Stock Car Division, a $1,500 bounty will be placed on Herring, who has surged into a tie for first place in the chase for the NASCAR Dodge Weekly Series points crown at South Boston Speedway.
Herring and Jonathan Cash are currently tied atop the Late Model Stock Car point standings. The two are 10 points ahead of third-place Owen Miller of Emporia, Va. and 30 points ahead of fourth-place Jon Denning of Springfield, N.J.
Any driver who can successfully defeat Herring and end his impressive winning streak will receive the regular first-place purse money along with an additional $1,500.
