Morris will continue bid for SoBo & national title Saturday at America's Hometown Track
SOUTH BOSTON, VA. — Philip Morris, an 11-time winner at South Boston Speedway in 2011 will bid for his 12th triumph Saturday night against some of the stoutest competition in the region in the NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model 150.
Morris, a three-time NASCAR Whelen All American national champion, currently sits atop the Late Model Stock Car Division standings and is in the third position in the most up-to-date NASCAR Whelen All American national title standings as he bids for a fourth national crown.
The NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model 150 will be the featured attraction of five races slated for Saturday night. The first event of the night will get the green flag at 7 p.m.
Also scheduled as part of the NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model 150 racing program will be action for the Limited Sportsman Division, twin races for the Budweiser Pure Stock Division and an event for the Southern Vintage Modifieds.
While Morris has staked himself out to a sizable 115-point advantage in the NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model Stock Car Division standings at America's Hometown Track, Natalie Sather, a female competitor, is poised to grab the top spot if given the chance. Sather is second in the standings, followed by Josh Oakley in the third position.
Dennis Holdren is fourth, while two-time defending champion Justin Johnson owns the fifth-place position.
The outcome of each and every Limited Sportsman Division race is pivotal as the season continues. Heading into Saturday night's event, Danny Willis Jr. and Brian Pembelton are deadlocked atop the standings and have defending champion Justin Snow bearing down on them from the third slot.
Bobby McCarty also remains in contention for the Limited Sportsman Division title from his fourth spot in the points. McCarty is just seven points behind Snow.
Trey Crews will carry a 14-point edge over second-place Joe Allred into the twin races for the Budweiser Pure Stock Division Saturday night. Randy Hupp owns the third-place spot and is followed in the top five by Stuart Crews in fourth and Jake Brown in fifth.
Darryl Lacks owns a slim one-point lead over Daryl Gwynn in the Southern Vintage Modified standings, while Donnie Lacks sits in third place.
