Late Models will battle it out in twin 75-lap races Saturday night at South Boston Speedway

SOUTH BOSTON, VA. — South Boston Speedway has produced some of the best NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model Stock Car Division racing action in the region this season.

On Saturday, May 26, America's Hometown Track will serve up a double dose of intense Late Model Stock Car Division action as part of the Halifax County "Powers" Business Late Model Twin 75s racing program.

Six races are planned Saturday night and the first event of the evening will roar to life at 7 p.m.

The featured attractions of the night will be a pair of 75-lap races for the drivers in the NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model Stock Car Division.

Lee Pulliam has collected victories in the last two Late Model Stock Car Division events; however, the division's point lead currently belongs to one-time winner Matthew Bowling.

Former South Boston Speedway and NASCAR Whelen All American Series national champion Peyton Sellers is second in the points and is followed in the top five by Dennis Holdren in third, Tommy Peregoy in fourth and Bruce Anderson in fifth.

A double dose of racing action is also slated Saturday evening for the competitors in the Limited Sportsman Division.

Heading into Saturday's twin races for the Limited Sportsman Division, Danny Willis Jr. will carry a 14-point lead over second-place Bobby McCarty in the division standings after scoring victories in the last three events.

Rounding out the night of racing action Saturday will be events for the Budweiser Pure Stock Division and the drivers in the touring MAD (Modified Affordable Division) Modifieds.

Joe Allred, III leads Trey Crews by 20 points in the battle for the Budweiser Pure Stock Division crown. Stuart Crews is third in the standings and is only six points out of second place.

Pit registration will begin at 1:00 p.m. Saturday. Practice for all divisions will be held from 3 p.m. until 4:30 p.m. and qualifying time trials will get underway at 5:30 p.m. Grandstand gates will open at 5 p.m. and admission will be $10 for adults and children six and under will be admitted free with a paid adult.
