SOUTH BOSTON, VA. — Believe it or not, the chase for the 2010 division championships at South Boston Speedway will come to a close Saturday night when America's Hometown Track hosts the GCR presents Spaulding Equipment Night 150.
Four division champions will be crowned at the close of Saturday night's five-race program. The first event of the evening will get cranked up at 7 p.m.
The featured attraction of the evening will be a 150-lap race for the drivers in the NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model Stock Car Division. Also featured Saturday night will be an event for the Limited Sportsman Division, twin races for the Budweiser Pure Stock Division and a race for the Southern Vintage Modifieds.
On the heels of an eighth-place finish and a seventh-place performance in twin racing action for the NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model Stock Car Division last weekend, Justin Johnson has clinched his second straight championship entering Saturday night's 150-lap race for the Late Model Stock Cars.
