Tripleheader of Late Model racing action slated Saturday at South Boston Speedway
SOUTH BOSTON, VA. — America's Hometown Track will roar to action this weekend with a special fan-leasing tripleheader of racing action on the four-tenths mile asphalt oval.
South Boston Speedway will host the touring PASS Super Late Model Series in a 150-lap shootout and the NASCAR Whelen All-American Late Model Stock Car Division in a pair of 75-lap races.
The first of the three races slated for the evening will get the green flag at 7 p.m.
Prior to racing action Saturday, fans will have a chance to go trackside and meet the drivers in the events in a special Fan Appreciation Session. Grandstand gates will open Saturday at 4:30 p.m., in time for fans to view the qualifying time trials for the two divisions at 4:45 p.m.
