SOUTH BOSTON, VA. — Racing action will return to the famed South Boston Speedway Saturday night when the NASCAR Whelen All American Series Late Model Twin 75s racing program will be staged.
A total of six races are on tap Saturday night with the first event scheduled to get cranked up at 7 p.m.
Highlighting the night of racing will be a pair of 75-lap races for the competitors in the NASCAR Whelen All American Series Late Model Stock Car Division.
Philip Morris notched his 12th victory of the campaign at the four-tenths mile asphalt oval and the former South Boston Speedway champion and a three-time NASCAR Whelen All American Series national champion continues to lead the way in the chase for the 2011 crown at America's Hometown Track.
Morris owns a 128-point cushion over second-place Natalie Sather in the chase for the 2011 crown. Dennis Holdren is third in the standings and is followed in the fourth spot by Josh Oakley.
Also scheduled Saturday night will be action for the Limited Sportsman Division, the Budweiser Pure Stock Division, and special appearances by the touring Legendary Flathead Series and the IMCA Style Modifieds.
