SoBo to double everyone's racing excitement two times Saturday night
SOUTH BOSTON, VA. — Mother Nature may have kept the engines from roaring to life last weekend at South Boston Speedway, but the rained out program from one week ago has set the stage for some exciting NASCAR Whelen All American Series racing action this weekend at America's Hometown Track.
South Boston Speedway will host a total of six events Saturday night, July 24, with the first race getting the green flag at 7 p.m.
Highlighting the huge night of racing will be twin 75-lap races for the NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model Stock Car Division. Also scheduled for a double dose of racing will be the Limited Sportsman Division. Rounding out the night of racing will be action for the Budweiser Pure Stock Division and the touring Legendary Flathead Series.
Justin Johnson is set to continue his quest for a second straight NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model Stock Car Division title. The seven-time winner in 2010 will enter the twin racing action this weekend with a 106-point lead over one-time winner Deac McCaskill.
McCaskill holds a mere two-point lead over third-place Stacy Puryear in the chase for the Late Model Stock Car crown. Lee Pulliam is fourth and trails Puryear by 12 points, while David Latour rounds out the top five competitors in the standings.
Tommy Peregoy is the point leader in the Limited Sportsman Division. He is 24 points ahead of Justin Snow. Danny Willis Jr. sits third in the standings and has moved within nine points of Snow. Defending division champion Brian Pembelton and Taylor Doggett round out the top five competitors in the standings.
