SOUTH BOSTON, Va. (Jan. 31, 2022) -- The SRX Series (Superstar Racing Experience) featuring drivers from a variety of racing backgrounds is coming to South Boston Speedway on Saturday, June 25 in what will be one of the biggest events in the speedway’s 65-year-history.

This will undoubtedly be one of the biggest events in the track’s history, and it will put South Boston Speedway and the South Boston, Virginia and Halifax County, Virginia community on a national stage. We are proud to be able to bring this event to South Boston Speedway as we celebrate the speedway’s 65th anniversary.”

Track officials point out that the easiest way to have tickets delivered is via e-mail.
“With this option you can either print your tickets out on standard copy paper or add them to your smartphone,” Brashears explained. “If you are unable to do that, we can print and mail your tickets to you in advance for a small shipping fee.

The SRX Series is a racing series founded in 2020 by three-time NASCAR Cup Series champion Tony Stewart, NASCAR Hall of Fame crew chief and team owner Ray Evernham, Sandy Montag and The Montag Group, and George Pyne.
Using a format similar to the format of the former International Race of Champions, the competing drivers race identically prepared racecars designed by Evernham.
The SRX Series debuted on June 12 of last year with a series of six short-track races that were nationally televised by CBS in primetime on Saturday nights during the summer.
A high level of competition was seen last season with five different drivers earning wins in the six-race series. Stewart won last year’s SRX Series title.
Racing fans can enjoy a full week in Southside Virginia and attend two of the country’s most prestigious events on back-to-back weekends. South Boston Speedway will host its crown jewel Fourth of July event, the Thunder Road Harley-Davidson 200 presented by Grand Atlantic Ocean Resort, on Saturday night, July 2.
That event will feature a 200-lap NASCAR Advance Auto Parts Weekly Series Late Model Stock Car Division race and one of the area’s best Fourth of July fireworks displays.
Tickets for the July 2 event are on sale now and are priced at $15 in advance. Kids ages 12 and under will be admitted free when accompanied by a paying adult.
