CenturyLink NASCAR Late Model 100 will heat things up Saturday night at SoBo
SOUTH BOSTON, VA. — The racing action will heat up again this week at America’s Hometown Track as five events are planned as part of the CenturyLink NASCAR Late Model 100 racing program on Saturday, July 19.
The first of five races Saturday night at the historic four-tenths mile asphalt oval will get cranked up at 7 p.m.
The featured attraction of the CenturyLink NASCAR Late Model 100 racing program will be a 100-lap dual for the drivers in the NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model Stock Car Division.
Former NASCAR Whelen All American Series national champion Peyton Sellers owns the lead in the chase for the 2014 crown at America’s Hometown Track after rolling to multiple victories thus far.
The battle for second in the title chase is tight as Austin Thaxton is only 11 points ahead of third-place Matt Bowling, who, like Sellers, is a former South Boston Speedway track champion.
Also scheduled as part of Saturday night’s racing action will be events for the Limited Sportsman Division, the Budweiser Pure Stock Division, the Hornets Division and the touring Legendary Ford Flatheads Racing Association.
A mere five points is all that separates the top three drivers in the Limited Sportsman Division point standings.
Trey Crews is currently the division leader; however, his cushion is only four points over second-place J.D. Eversole and only five points over Danny Willis Jr., who is the division’s defending champion.
In the Budweiser Pure Stock Division, Greg Autry is 25 points ahead of second-place Bruce Mayo, Johnny Layne and Harrison Walker are tied for third place in the division. Layne and Walker are only two points ahead of fifth-place Jimmy Wade.
Kevin Currin and Austin Milam are the points leaders in the Hornets Division. Currin is in first place. He is 10 points ahead of Milam.
Pit gates will open on Saturday at 2 p.m. and practice for all divisions will be held from 3:30 p.m. until 4:30 p.m. Qualifying time trials will roll off at 5:30 p.m. Grandstand gates will open 5 p.m.
