Twin Late Model races scheduled Saturday as part of American National presents Charles Anderson Lawn Care Night at SoBo
SOUTH BOSTON, VA. — Saturday night's American National presents Charles Anderson Lawn Care Night at South Boston Speedway will now offer even more excitement than originally planned.
Initially five events were on tap for the American National presents Charles Anderson Lawn Care Night racing program Saturday night at America's Hometown Track. The rainout of last weekend's NASCAR Whelen All American Series racing action, however, set the stage for six races to be waged on the historic four-tenths mile asphalt oval.
The featured attractions of the evening will be a pair of 75-lap events for the NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model Stock Car Division.
Twin races are also scheduled Saturday night for the Limited Sportsman Division competitors, along with races for the Budweiser Pure Stock Division and the Southern Vintage Modifieds.
In addition to announcing twin races for the NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model Stock Car Division this weekend, South Boston Speedway General Manager Cathy Rice also announced this week that the Budweiser Pure Stock Division event, which was rained out last weekend, would be made up on Saturday, Sept. 3, when twin races will be scheduled for the division's competitors.
Also this week, Rice said that race fans' rain checks from this past weekend would be honored for this weekend's racing action only. Rice also said that pit passes from last weekend will also be honored for all divisions that did not complete events.
Heading into Saturday night's twin races for the NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model Stock Car Division, Philip Morris, a three-time NASCAR Whelen All American Series national champion, will own a sizable 146-point cushion over Natalie Sather in his quest to claim another championship at America's Hometown Track. Dennis Holdren is third in the standings and is only 18 points ahead of fourth-place Matt Bowling.
The twin races for the Limited Sportsman Division Saturday night could play a huge factor in deciding the 2011 division champion.
Danny Willis Jr. owns a mere one-point edge over Brian Pembelton heading into the twin races Saturday night. Bobby McCarty, who scored another victory last weekend, is third in the standings. McCarty is 19 points ahead of defending division champion Justin Snow.
Joe Allred continues to set the pace in the title chase for the Budweiser Pure Stock Division. He is 31 points ahead of second-place Trey Crews. Stuart Crews is third in the standings and is only one point ahead of Randy Hupp.
Darryl Lacks owns an 11-point lead over Daryl Gwynn in the Southern Vintage Modifieds standings, while Donnie Lacks is in third place and is only six points behind Gwynn.
Pit registration will begin at 12:30 p.m. on Aug. 13. Practice for all divisions will be held from 2:30 p.m. until 4:30 p.m. and qualifying time trials will get underway at 5:30 p.m. Grandstand gates will open at 5 p.m. and admission will be $10 for adults and children six and under will be admitted free with a paid adult.
