Advance tickets just $10 for the PASS Super Late Model, NASCAR Whelen Late Model action at SoBo
SOUTH BOSTON, VA. —The PASS Super Late Models and the NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model Stock Car Division will both be in action this weekend at South Boston Speedway.
The night of racing will get cranked up at 7 p.m. and will feature four action-packed events on the four-tenths mile asphalt oval.
Co-headlining the PASS Super Late Model 150 racing program will be the second of three visits by the PASS Super Late Model Series to South Boston Speedway in 2013, along with twin 75-lap battles for the highly-competitive drivers in the NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model Stock Car Division.
Also featured Saturday night will be a race for the touring Legends Cars Series.
Prior to green flag racing action at 7 p.m., a Fan Appreciation Session will be held trackside from 5:30 p.m. until 6:30 p.m. to enable fans to visit with their favorite competitors.
If the May 11 PASS Super Late Model Series event at South Boston Speedway is any indication, Saturday night’s 150-lap race should make for some great racing action.
On May 11, four different drivers held the lead over the course of the 150-lap race, and there were nine different lead changes.
Ross Kenseth, the son of NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Matt Kenseth, motored to the win in the 150-lap race, while Kyle Grissom grabbed the runner-up position.
Jay Fogleman, Preston Peltier and Kyle Moon rounded out the top five finishers. Trevor Noles led 69 laps in the May 11 race, and Trey Mitchell held the top spot for 50 laps.
Lee Pulliam, the defending NASCAR Whelen All American Series national champion and the current leader in the chase for the 2013 national title, sits atop the South Boston Speedway NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model Stock Car Division standings.
Pulliam, who has scored eight victories this season at South Boston Speedway and 12 overall victories for the 2013 campaign, will be seeking his ninth and 10th triumphs at the historic four-tenths mile asphalt oval Saturday night.
Pulliam leads second-place Bobby McCarty in his bid for the 2013 South Boston Speedway championship at South Boston Speedway.
McCarty is currently 38 points ahead of third-place Dustin Storm. Former multi-time NASCAR Whelen All American Series national champion Philip Morris and Austin Thaxton are just 12 points behind Storm in a tie for fourth place in the standings.
Grandstand gates will open Saturday at 4:30 p.m. Qualifying time trials will also begin at 4:30 p.m. Practice for the competing divisions will be held Saturday from 2 p.m. until 3:50 p.m.
