Twin Late Model races Saturday at SoBo could play major role in determining 2010 champion
SOUTH BOSTON, VA. — It's early in the season, but Saturday's racing action at South Boston Speedway could play a key role in determining who will emerge as contenders for the 2010 NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model Stock Car Division championship.
America's Hometown Track will return to action Saturday for the running of the NASCAR Whelen All American Series Late Model Twin 75's race program. The featured events of the night will be a pair of 75-lap races for the NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model Stock Car Division. The first of four races scheduled Saturday night will get the green flag at 7 p.m.
Through two events this season, the NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model Stock Car Division has seen two winners at the four-tenths mile asphalt oval 2009 defending champion Justin Johnson and Tommy Lemons have claimed victories.
Johnson and Lemons are currently tied atop the Late Model point standings, 13 points ahead of a third-place tie between Philip Morris and Deac McCaskill. Just eight points behind that tie is a three-way deadlock for fifth place between C.E. Falk, Dustin Storm and Eddie Johnson.
Also scheduled for action Saturday night is the Limited Sportsman Division competitors and the Budweiser Pure Stock Division drivers.
Justin Snow and Tommy Peregoy have scored Limited Sportsman Division victories thus far this season and the two occupy the top spots in the point standings. Snow is in first place, four points ahead of Peregoy. Danny Willis Jr. sits third in the standings, just one point behind Peregoy.
One-time winner Randy Hupp leads the Budweiser Pure Stock Division standings through one race. He leads Joe Allred by seven points in the division standings. Trey Crews and Daniel Crews are tied for third, just six points behind Allred.
