Double file restarts among rule changes for 2011 season at South Boston Speedway
SOUTH BOSTON, VA. — For 50-plus years, South Boston Speedway has offered some of the best NASCAR short track racing in the country and things are going to get even more exciting when the green flag drops for the 2011 campaign at America's Hometown Track.
The NASCAR rules for the 2011 season at South Boston Speedway are posted on the track's Web site at southbostonspeedway.com and among the changes that will greet fans and competitors are double file restarts following caution periods. The double file restarts were added for 2011 "by popular demand," according to South Boston Speedway General Manager Cathy Rice.
Other highlights in the rule changes for the upcoming season will be crate engines being allowed in the NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model Stock Car Division and the introduction of the 390 carburetor in the Limited Sportsman Division.
Rice noted that, while crate engines will be allowed in the Late Model Stock Car Division, built motors, which have been used in past seasons at the four-tenths mile asphalt oval will also still be allowed.
The full list of rules and changes for the upcoming season can be found on the speedway's Web site under the "Rules" link.
The 2011 South Boston Speedway schedule includes 19 events at the four-tenths mile asphalt oval and season tickets, priced at only $150, and gift certificates in any increments are available in time for the holiday shopping season.
The season ticket covers the admission price for all 19 events at South Boston Speedway in 2011.
During the 2011 season, South Boston Speedway will, once again, host its annual Independence Day celebration on July 1. That event will feature a 200-lap Late Model Stock Car Division race, along with a 100-lap Limited Sportsman event, a 50-lap Pure Stock clash and the track's annual Fireworks Extravaganza.
Other special events on the 2011 South Boston Speedway schedule include two appearances by the touring PASS Super Late Models on May 7 and Aug. 20, an April 16 doubleheader featuring the NASCAR K&N Pro Series and the NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour, and the USARacing Pro Cup Series will return on June 11.
