7 events on tap Saturday night as part of Gazette-Virginian NASCAR Late Model Twin 75s program at South Boston Speedway

SOUTH BOSTON, VA. — A smorgasbord of NASCAR Whelen All American Series racing action will be served up to area short tracks fans Saturday night at South Boston Speedway.

America’s Hometown Track will return to action Saturday with the running of the Gazette-Virginian NASCAR Late Model Twin 75s racing program. A total of seven races are slated on the historic four-tenths mile asphalt oval. The first battle of the night will get underway at 7 p.m.

Highlighting the racing action will be twin 75-lap races for the drivers in the NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model Stock Car Division. Twin 25-lap races are also scheduled for the drivers in the Limited Sportsman Division.

Rounding out the night of racing action will be events for the Budweiser Pure Stock Division, the Modified Division and the Hornets Division.

Tickets purchased for last weekend’s Southern Virginia Higher Education Center NASCAR Late Model Twin 75s racing program, which was rained out, will be honored this weekend.

Former NASCAR Whelen All American Series national champion, Peyton Sellers, will attempt to continue his bid towards a second NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model Stock Car Division championship at South Boston Speedway Saturday night.

Sellers has racked up five victories in 2014 and sits comfortably atop the point standings in the Late Model Stock Car Division ranks.

The battle for second place in the standings is a tight one as Austin Thaxton owns only a mere three-point cushion over Matt Bowling, who is also seeking his second championship at America’s Hometown Track.

Josh Oakley sits in the fourth-place position in the standings. He is only four points ahead of Bruce Anderson. Both Oakley and Anderson have visited Victory Lane this season at South Boston Speedway.

Defending champion Danny Willis Jr. has moved to the top of the standings in the Limited Sportsman Division. Willis, who owns one victory this season, is only three points ahead of second-place J.D. Eversole. Trey Crews, who led the standings earlier in the season, is now in third place. He is 12 points behind Eversole.

Tommy Peregoy and Bob Davis round out the top five contenders in the championship chase.

In the Budweiser Pure Stock Division, Greg Autry has opened a 28-point lead over Bruce Mayo in the title standings.

Stuart Crews is third in the Pure Stock standings. Johnny Layne currently holds the fourth-place spot; however, he is only four points ahead of fifth-place Harrison Walker.

In the Modified Division, Jimmy Humblet leads the chase for the crown by nine points over Mike Rudy. Joe Scarborough is third in the championship battle. He is two points ahead of fourth-place Chris Johnson and six points ahead of fifth-place Mike Johnson.

Currently, the top three competitors in the battle for the Hornets Division championship this season are Kevin Currin, Austin Milam and Kenny Mills.

Pit gates will open on Saturday at 2 p.m. and practice for all divisions will be held from 3:30 p.m. until 4:30 p.m. Qualifying time trials will roll off at 5:30 p.m. Grandstand gates will open 5 p.m.
