Southern Virginia Higher Education Center NASCAR Late Model Twin 75s racing action Saturday at SoBo

SOUTH BOSTON, VA. – There’s a whole lot of NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model Stock Car Division racing action remaining in the 2014 season at South Boston Speedway, and the action-packed excitement continues this weekend with the running of the Southern Virginia Higher Education Center NASCAR Late Model Twin 75s racing program at America’s Hometown Track on Saturday night.

Five action-packed events will be scheduled as part of the Southern Virginia Higher Education Center NASCAR Late Model Twin 75s racing program, highlighted by a pair of 75-lap shootouts for the drivers in the NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model Stock Car Division.

The first of five races scheduled Saturday, Aug. 2 will get cranked up at 7 p.m. As a special feature of the Southern Virginia Higher Education Center NASCAR Late Model Twin 75s racing program, all emergency services personnel will be admitted for the racing action at the discounted price of $5 per person.

Also featured as part of Saturday night’s NASCAR Whelen All American Series program will be events for the Limited Sportsman Division, the Budweiser Pure Stock Division and the Champ Karts.

Former NASCAR Whelen All American Series national champion Peyton Sellers is in search of his second NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model Stock Car Division championship at South Boston Speedway. He currently leads the standings in the division and has reeled off five triumphs in 2014 at the historic four-tenths mile asphalt oval.

Austin Thaxton sits in second place in the standings; however, he is only three points ahead Matt Bowling in the third-place spot. Bowling, like Sellers, is looking for his second NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model Stock Car Division crown at South Boston Speedway.

Josh Oakley is fourth in the standings and is only four points ahead of fifth-place Bruce Anderson. Both Oakley and Anderson have scored victories in 2014 at South Boston Speedway.

Defending Limited Sportsman Division champion Danny Willis Jr. has fought all season to return to the top of the standings and has finally achieved the first-place position; however, the one-time winner is only three points ahead of J.D. Eversole.

Trey Crews, who led the majority of the season in the division, has slipped to third in the standings. He is 12 points out of the lead heading into this weekend’s racing action. Tommy Peregoy is in fourth place and Bob Davis rounds out the top five in the standings.

Greg Autry continues to lead the standings in the Budweiser Pure Stock Division. He owns a 28-point cushion over second-place Bruce Mayo.

Just 4 points separate third place Johnny Layne, Harrison Walker in fourth place and fifth-place Jimmy Wade.
