THERE'S PLENTY TO DO IN SOUTHSIDE VIRGINIA
Where to play. Where to stay.

Halifax County, Virginia, and the areas that surround it (known as Southside Virginia) have plenty to offer. From the right and left turns of VIRginia International Raceway to a historic plantation to one of the largest reservoirs/lakes in the Southeast United States, plan your trip now. And we'll be sure to share even more fun things to do as we get closer to June 25!

Halifax County, VA

Home to both South Boston Speedway and VIRginia International Raceway (VIR), Halifax County is rich in motorsports history. The historic county is also home to the Berry Hill Resort, a beautiful plantation that has been turned into a resort, and many other historic locations. Be sure to plan to check out all of the great shops and restaurants in the towns of Halifax and South Boston. 

Danville & Pittsylvania County, VA

Danville is the birthplace of Wendell Scott and is the closest larger city to South Boston Speedway (just about 40 minutes). You'll find plenty of local and chain restaurants and beautiful scenery to take in, as the city has undergone some major revitalization projects in recent years.
