Craig Riding Hot Streak Headed Into South Boston Speedway PASS Race

SOUTH BOSTON, Va. (August 8, 2017) – Matt Craig rolls into South Boston Speedway Saturday night on a hot streak in the PASS South Super Late Model Series.

The young driver has four wins in six PASS starts this season and has finished in the top five in all but one race. Those four wins have allowed him to build a solid point lead over second-place Tate Fogleman and third-place Kodie Conner. Fogleman and Conner are winless, but each has two top 5s and five top 10s on the season.

In addition to the 150-lap PASS Super Late Model race Saturday night, there will be twin 75-lap Late Model races and a 15-lap Budweiser Hornets Division race.

Fogleman, son of Jay Fogleman, a former South Boston campaigner who notched three Late Model wins on the .4-mile oval, may have a slight advantage Saturday. He was runner-up to winner Jeff Fultz the last time the PASS cars visited South Boston in the spring of 2016. Craig finished eighth in that race.

Austin Thaxton will be the only South Boston late model regular to compete in the 150-lap PASS race. The South Boston resident will be driving for TH Motorsports out of Watkinsville, Georgia. Thaxton, who is third in South Boston late model points and has one win on his home track this season, has competed in six super late model races for TH Motorsports this season, but this will be his first PASS event.
Thaxton will also run both ends of the 75-lap late model twin bill.

Peyton Sellers enters Saturday night’s Late Model doubleheader with a solid lead in the South Boston points standings with a more-than 60-point lead over Bobby McCarty. Thaxton is third followed by Danny Willis Jr. and Brandon Pierce.

Sellers and McCarty have three wins each on the season.

Advance adult general admission tickets are $10 each and can be purchased by calling 877.440.1540. Adult general admission tickets will be $15 the day of the race. Youth ages 7-12 will be admitted for $5 while kids six and under will be admitted free with a paying adult.

The track will be hosting a canned food drive Saturday night and anyone bringing five cans of food will receive $5 off an adult race-day ticket.
