South Boston Speedway Takes Week Off; Returns To Action June 23 With Whelen 150
SOUTH BOSTON, VA. - South Boston Speedway is taking this weekend off.
That, for some of South Boston Speedway's competitors, is probably a good thing, especially those drivers in the Barkhouser Late Model Stock Car Division.
If one of the Late Model Stock Car Division drivers can find a way to break Barker's win streak in the 150-lap race that will headline the Whelen 150 Presented by Charles Anderson Lawn Care racing program on Saturday night, June 23, the lucky driver will be rewarded.
For the second time in as many events, South Boston Speedway officials are posting a $1,000 bounty for any driver other than Barker that can win the race. On the other hand, if Barker chooses to start at the rear of the field and goes on to win the race, Barker can collect the bounty money.
Racing fans will see plenty of action in the Whelen 150 Presented by Charles Anderson Lawn Care racing program. In addition to the 150-lap race for the Barkhouser Late Model Stock Car Division, fans will see the competitors in the Limited Sportsman division battle it out in a twin-race event.
Also on the June 23 racing card are races for the Budweiser Pure Stock Division and the Southern Vintage Modifieds.
South Boston Speedway's gates will open at 5 p.m., qualifying starts at 5:15 p.m. and the first race will start at 7 p.m.
South Boston Speedway will continue its Early Bird Special with admission being $8 for adults up until 6:30 p.m. and $10 after that. Youths ages 10-15 will be admitted for $5. Kids ages 9 and under will be admitted free with a paid adult.
