South Boston Speedway now ready to open 2009 racing campaign on Saturday, March 21
SOUTH BOSTON, VA. — Mother Nature did not cooperate with South Boston Speedway competitors and fans last weekend, but the green flag is now ready to drop to begin the 2009 season on Saturday, March 21, at America's Hometown Track.
Persistent rain on Friday and Saturday of last week washed out the planned season-opener, however, this weekend five action-packed races are planned for the running of the NASCAR Whelen Night.
The first of five races will begin at 2 p.m. The featured event of the day will be a 150-lap race for the drivers in the NASCAR Late Model Stock Car Division. Also slated for action on the four-tenths mile asphalt oval will be an event for the Limited Sportsman Division, twin races for the Budweiser Pure Stock Division and a shootout for the competitors in the Legendary Flathead Series.
Pit gates will open Saturday at 9 a.m. and practice for all divisions will be held from 10:30 a.m. until noon. Grandstand gates will open at noon and qualifying time trials will get cranked up at 12:45 p.m.
Adult tickets are priced at just $10 each for the afternoon of racing.
