March Mayhem racing program scheduled at 2 p.m. Saturday at South Boston Speedway
SOUTH BOSTON, VA. — Forget about March Madness. It's time for some March Mayhem at South Boston Speedway.
The historic four-tenths mile asphalt oval will return to action for the second straight weekend on Saturday, March 19, for the running of the March Mayhem NASCAR Dodge Weekly Racing Series event.
The action on the track was hot last weekend in season-opening action and fans can expect much of the same this weekend.
For the second straight week, Saturday's event will have a special green flag starting time of 2 p.m.
Highlighting Saturday's March Mayhem racing program will be a 150-lap battle for the drivers in the Barkhouser Late Model Stock Car Division.
Danville, Va. driver Peyton Sellers won last week's Late Model Stock Car event giving him back-to-back triumphs in season-opening competition at South Boston Speedway. Brandon Butler finished second in the 26-car field, while Frank Deiny, Jr. motored to a third-place finish.
The Limited Sportsman Division drivers will also be in action on Saturday. The competitors in the division will hit the asphalt for a 50-lap race.
Justin Snow, who resides in Danville, Va., collected a season-opening victory last weekend, while Tommy Peregoy and Billy Myers rounded out the top three drivers in the March 12 shootout.
Other action slated for Saturday will include races for the touring Allison Legacy Series, the Legends Cars and the Southern Vintage Modified drivers.
Pit gates will open Saturday at 9 a.m. with practice for all divisions running from 10:30 a.m. until noon. Grandstand gates will open at noon and qualifying time trials will get underway at 12:45 p.m.
Adult admission for the race will be $8 up to 1:30 p.m. and $10 after that. Youth, ages 10-15, will be admitted for $5 and children under the age of 10 will be admitted free with a paid adult.
