SOUTH BOSTON, VA. — Twin races will be prevalent Saturday, Aug. 9 when South Boston Speedway returns to action with the running of the Gazette-Virginian NASCAR Late Model Twin 75s racing program.

The night of NASCAR Whelen All American Series racing action will get cranked up at 7 p.m. and will be highlighted by twin 75-lap races for the drivers in the NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model Stock Car Division and twin 25-lap races for the competitors in the Limited Sportsman Division.

The seven-race event will also feature events for the Budweiser Pure Stock Division, the Modified Division and the Hornets Division.
