South Boston Speedway to host NASCAR Late Model 100 racing program Saturday night

SOUTH BOSTON, VA. — South Boston Speedway will kick off the Memorial Day Weekend Saturday night, May 23 with the running of the NASCAR Late Model 100 racing program.

In honor of Memorial Day Weekend and to honor all military personnel, America’s Hometown Track is also hosting Military Appreciation Night this weekend. All military personnel will be admitted free on Saturday with proper identification.

The first of five events scheduled to compete on the historic four-tenths mile asphalt oval will begin at 7 p.m.

Highlighting the night of racing will be a 100-lap race for the drivers in the NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model Stock Car Division.

There has been an intense battle for the lead in the chase for the 2015 championship in the division thus far. Two-time NASCAR Whelen All American Series national champion is currently in first place in the standings; however, Pulliam only has a two-point lead over Matt Bowling.

Pulliam has recorded three triumphs in 2015 at America’s Hometown Track and Bowling, a former South Boston Speedway NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model Stock Car Division champion, has claimed one victory.

The top five in the title chase for the Late Model Stock Car Division is rounded out by Juan Garcia in third, Thaxton in fourth and Quin Houff in fifth place.

Also slated as part of Saturday night’s NASCAR Late Model 100 racing program will be a pair of 25-lap races for the drivers in the Limited Sportsman Division, along with events for the Budweiser Pure Stock Division and the Budweiser Hornets Division.

Danny Willis Jr. is seeking his third consecutive Limited Sportsman Division championship at South Boston Speedway and sits atop the point standings with a 20-point cushion over Joey Throckmorton on the strength of two victories this season.

The fight for third place in the Limited Sportsman Division standings continues to be intense as Trey Crews and Calvin Meadows are currently tied for the spot ahead of fifth-place Billy Myers.

Another close battle for a position exists atop the Budweiser Pure Stock Division where Greg Autry leads Stuart Crews by a mere two points.

In the Budweiser Hornets Division, Eric Winslow is in first place by a 21-point margin over Kirstin Simmons.
