Twin 75-lap Late Model races will highlight Saturday racing at South Boston Speedway
SOUTH BOSTON, VA. — The NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model Stock Car Division will highlight a six-race event Saturday night when South Boston Speedway returns to racing action under the lights.
America’s Hometown Track will host the Charles Anderson Lawn Care presents Italian Delight Family Restaurant program Saturday, May 3. The first event of the night will roll to the starting grid at 7 p.m.
The featured events of the night will be a pair of 75-lap battles for the drivers in the NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model Stock Car Division.
Four different drivers have motored to Victory Lane through the opening five NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model Stock Car Division races of the season.
Peyton Sellers, a former NASCAR Whelen All American Series national champion, claimed victories in the first two races of the season and currently owns a slim two-point edge over former South Boston Speedway champion Matt Bowling in the chase for the 2014 title.
Bobby McCarty is third in the standings. One-time winners Josh Oakley and Austin Thaxton are sitting in the fourth and fifth-place spots in the standings. Oakley is only two points ahead of Thaxton in the battle for fourth place.
Also scheduled as part of the Charles Anderson Lawn Care presents Italian Delight Family Restaurant program are events for the Limited Sportsman Division, the Budweiser Pure Stock Division, the Modified Division and the touring Legendary Ford Flatheads.
Trey Crews has motored to one victory thus far this season and he is currently in first place in the Limited Sportsman Division standings. Crews’ edge is quite precarious; however, as he only leads second-place Tommy Peregoy by one point.
J.D. Eversole and Daryn Cockran are deadlocked in third place in the Limited Sportsman Division standings. The two are only three points ahead of one-time winner Danny Willis Jr., who is the defending champion of the division.
Greg Autry, a two-time winner in 2014, leads Johnny Layne and Bruce Mayo in the battle for the Budweiser Pure Stock Division championship.
In the Modified Division, one-time winner Jimmy Humblet leads Mike Rudy by five points in the standings.
