Twin 75-lap battles for the Late Model Stock Car Division on tap Saturday night at South Boston

SOUTH BOSTON, VA. – Twin 75 lap races for the NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model Stock Car Division will be the featured attraction of the night Saturday when South Boston Speedway returns to action with the running of the Southern Virginia Higher Education Center NASCAR Late Model Twin 75s racing program.

Five action-packed races will be offered Saturday night as part of the Southern Virginia Higher Education Center NASCAR Late Model Twin 75s racing program. The first event of the evening will begin 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.

The region’s top NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model Stock Car Division will, once again, be on hand for the racing action. Three of the top nine drivers in the standings for the NASCAR Whelen All American Series national championship standings are regular competitors at America’s Hometown Track.

Two-time defending NASCAR Whelen All American Series national champion Lee Pulliam is currently second in the national title standings, while former NASCAR Whelen All American Series national champion Peyton Sellers is fourth and former South Boston Speedway champion Matt Bowling ranks ninth in the national standings.

Sellers, who is bidding for his second NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model Stock Car Division championship at South Boston Speedway, currently leads the standings in the division. He has tallied five wins in 2014 at the historic four-tenths mile asphalt oval and owns a sizable edge over second-place Austin Thaxton.

Thaxton is only three points ahead Bowling in the third-place spot. Josh Oakley is fourth in the standings and is only four points ahead of fifth-place Bruce Anderson. Both Oakley and Anderson have posted wins in 2014 at South Boston Speedway.

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.

Danny Willis Jr., the defending Limited Sportsman Division champion, has put himself in position to repeat as champion. The one-time winner in 2014 has climbed to the top of the division’s standings; however, he only has a three-point lead over second-place 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 Saturday’s racing action. Tommy Peregoy is in fourth place and Bob Davis rounds out the top five in the standings.

In the Budweiser Pure Stock Division, Greg Autry sits on top of the heap with a 28-point lead over second-place Bruce Mayo. Johnny Layne is 4 points ahead of fourth place Harrison Walker with Jimmy Wade rounds out the top five in the standings.

Pit gates will open Saturday at 2 p.m. and practice for all divisions will be held from 3:30 p.m. until 4:30 p.m.

Grandstand gates will open Saturday at 5 p.m. and qualifying time trials to set the starting lineups for the night of racing will get cranked up at 5:30 p.m.
