SOUTH BOSTON, VA. — The PASS Super Late Model Series will team with the NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model Stock Car Division to provide area fans with an exciting night of short track racing.
For the second time this season, the PASS Super Late Model Series will visit America’s Hometown Track for the running of the PASS Super Late Model 150 racing program.
Sharing the spotlight with the PASS Super Late Model Series Saturday night will be the NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model Stock Car Division competitors in a pair of 75-lap shootouts.
Also scheduled as part of the four-race program will be an event for the touring Legends Series cars.
The first of the four races will get the green flag at 7 p.m.
Defending NASCAR Whelen All American Series national champion Lee Pulliam, the current leader in the chase for the 2013 national crown, will be seeking his ninth and 10th victories of the season at the historic four-tenths mile asphalt oval Saturday night.
Pulliam has opened a comfortable advantage over second-place Bobby McCarty in his bid for the 2013 South Boston Speedway championship.
