Late Models will battle it out in twin 75-lap races Saturday at South Boston Speedway
SOUTH BOSTON, VA. — The region's best NASCAR Whelen All American Series Late Model Stock Car Division competitors will be on hand at South Boston Speedway for the running of the NASCAR Whelen All American Series Late Model Twin 75's racing program.
The night of racing will feature six total events, highlighted by the two 75-lap shootouts for the competitors in the NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model Stock Car Division. The green flag will wave for the first race of the night at 7 p.m.
Philip Morris, a three-time NASCAR Whelen All American Series national champion and a former South Boston Speedway champion, is well on his way to securing another crown at America's Hometown Track. And, the Ruckersville, Va. driver is in the thick of yet another national title hunt. Entering this weekend's action, Morris is third in the national championship hunt and is well within striking range of leader Keith Rocco and second-place Lee Pulliam.
In the chase for the 2011 crown at America's Hometown Track, Morris owns
a 128-point cushion over second-place Natalie Sather. Dennis Holdren is third in the standings and is followed in the fourth spot by Josh Oakley.
The Limited Sportsman Division will also be in action Saturday night, along with the Budweiser Pure Stock Division and special appearances by the Legendary Flathead Series and the IMCA Style Modifieds.
Danny Willis Jr. used a victory one week ago to take over first place in the Limited Sportsman Division standings. Willis leads second-place Brian Pembelton by a mere seven points heading into this weekend's action. Justin Snow, the division's defending champion, is third in the standings and is 21 points ahead of fourth-place Bobby McCarty.
Joe Allred won a pair of races for the Budweiser Pure Stock Division last week and leads Trey Crews by a slim four points in the division standings heading into action this weekend. Randy Hupp is third in the standings and is only three points ahead of fourth-place Stuart Crews.
