South Boston Speedway Kicks Off 2020 With Open Practice Day

SOUTH BOSTON, VA….South Boston Speedway’s first official on-track activity of the 2020 season is set for Saturday, March 14, with the track holding its annual Open Practice/Media Day event, weather permitting.

Saturday’s Open Practice Day schedule has registration and pit gates opening at 9 a.m. Practice will run from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m., with the pit area closing at 4 p.m.

Fans will be admitted free and can watch the day’s activities from the frontstretch grandstands and from the tailgate section on the backstretch.

“Our Open Practice/Media Day event is something drivers, race teams and fans look forward to each year,” said South Boston Speedway General Manager Cathy Rice.
“It gives the drivers and race teams an opportunity to get onto the track and prepare for the start of the season. Fans enjoy it because they can watch the activity on the track and see some of the drivers and teams that will be competing at South Boston Speedway this season.”

Saturday’s Open Practice Day is a prelude to South Boston Speedway’s March 21 season-opening Who’s Your Driver NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour 150/NASCAR Late Model
