SOUTH BOSTON, VA. — Three sets of twin races and seven total races. That’s what will be served up Saturday night, Aug. 1 when South Boston Speedway hosts the “Italian Delight Family Restaurant presents Frutopia Not Just Frozen” NASCAR Late Model Twin 75s racing program.

The first of the seven events scheduled on the historic four-tenths mile asphalt oval will get underway at 7 p.m.

Former South Boston Speedway champion Matt Bowling, a two-time winner at America’s Hometown Track this season, will try to continue his bid for another track championship when the drivers in the NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model Stock Car Division hit the track Saturday night.

Bowling owns a 37-point lead over two-time NASCAR Whelen All American Series national champion Lee Pulliam in the battle for the 2015 track championship. Pulliam, who has racked up five wins this season at South Boston Speedway, is also a former track champion at America’s Hometown Track.
