It’s Carload Night at the historic four-tenths mile asphalt oval Saturday night for $20. The $20 carload special excludes vans, SUVs, and trucks.
The first of six races scheduled Saturday night will get cranked up at 7 p.m.
The co-featured attractions of the night Saturday will be twin 75-lap races for the drivers in the NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model Stock Car Division and an event for the touring PASS Super Late Models.
The PASS Super Late Models were slated to battle in a race on Aug. 17 at America’s Hometown Track; however, that event was rained out.
Grandstand tickets from the Aug. 17 event will be honored at the Aug. 31 event at South Boston Speedway.

Lee Pulliam, the winner of 14 events at South Boston Speedway this season and 22 overall triumphs, will once again be looking to fend off bounty hunters Saturday night when the NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model Stock Car Division competitors battle it out in a pair of 75-lap races.
Pulliam, the defending NASCAR Whelen All American Series national champion, currently leads the national title standings this year over Deac McCaskill.
A bounty on Pulliam that began at $500 has now swelled to $2,500 as Pulliam has won four consecutive races since the bounty was put in place.
South Boston Speedway General Manager Cathy Rice has said that Pulliam must still be competing at the end of the race for a driver to claim the bounty, and she added that Pulliam can also claim the bounty if he elects to start from the rear of the field and attempt to work his way to the front to score his 15th victory of the campaign at America’s Hometown Track.
