SoBo's May 29 Italian Delight program offers two chances to slow defending champ down
SOUTH BOSTON, VA. Can anyone catch Justin Johnson?
The defending South Boston Speedway NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model Stock Car Division champion is setting a torrid pace in the 2010 campaign. Johnson currently has five victories in the campaign and has amassed a 64-point cushion over his closest challenger in the race for his second straight title.
The regions best NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model Stock Car drivers will have two chances to halt Johnsons winning ways when South Boston Speedway returns to action on Saturday, May 29, for the running of the Italian Delight Twin 75s race program.
Highlighting the evening of racing at the four-tenths mile asphalt oval will be a pair of 75-lap events for the drivers in the NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model Stock Car Division. The first race of the night will get the green flag at 7 p.m.
Nick Smith currently sits second in the Late Model standings and is 25 points ahead of a third-place tie between Deac McCaskill and Stacy Puryear. Lee Pulliam is fifth in the standings and is only eight points behind McCaskill and Puryear.
Also slated for action on May 29 will be the Limited Sportsman Division, the Budweiser Pure Stock Division and the Southern Vintage Modifieds.
Tommy Peregoy and Justin Snow continue to reside at the top of the Limited Sportsman Division standings. Each claimed a victory last weekend when twin races were waged at Americas Hometown Track.
Peregoy currently leads the championship chase, but only has a nine-point edge over Snow. Danny Willis Jr. is third in the standings, while defending champion Brian Pembelton is fourth and Jonathan Bailey is fifth.
Jarrett Milam used a victory last weekend to move to the top of the heap in the Budweiser Pure Stock Division. Milam owns a 10-point lead over second-place Joe Allred. Daniel Crews is third in the standings. He is 10 points behind Allred and only one point ahead of fourth-place Randy Hupp.
Pit registration will begin at noon on Saturday, May 29. Practice for all divisions will be held from 2:15 p.m. until 3:45 p.m. and qualifying time trials will get underway at 5:15 p.m. Grandstand gates will open at 5 p.m. Admission is $10 for adults and $5 for youths ages 7-12.
