Late Model Stock Car questions to be answered Saturday when South Boston returns to action
SOUTH BOSTON, VA. — Will a third different NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Late Model Stock Car Division winner emerge in the early part of the season this weekend at South Boston Speedway? Or, will someone assume the upper hand in the chase for the 2013 Late Model Stock Car Division championship at America’s Hometown Track?
Those questions and many more will be answered Saturday afternoon when South Boston Speedway returns to action for the running of the NASCAR Whelen Late Model 150 racing program. The four-race program will get underway at 2 p.m.
Highlighting the special afternoon of racing will be a 150-lap shootout for the competitors in the NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model Stock Car Division.
In twin 100-lap events on Saturday, March 9, two different drivers found their way to Victory Lane as defending NASCAR Whelen All American Series national champion Lee Pulliam won the opening 100-lap event and C.E. claimed a victory in the second race.
Twenty of the region’s best NASCAR Whelen All American Series Late Model Stock Car Division competitors were on hand for the season-opening battles.
Also featured as part of the four-race program on Saturday will be events for the Limited Sportsman Division, the Budweiser Pure Stock Division and the Modified Division.
Danny Willis Jr. bested a field of 17 cars to win the season-opening Limited Sportsman Division event on March 9 on the historic four-tenths mile asphalt oval and Joe Allred III was the winner of the season-opening Budweiser Pure Stock Division event.
Saturday’s event will mark the first of the season at the historic four-tenths mile asphalt oval for the Modified Division.
