South Boston Speedway News
4th of July weekend begins Friday night at SoBo with great racing action and fireworks to follow

Southboston, Va. --

The Fourth of July holiday weekend officially begins at 6 p.m. Friday. For avid fans of short track racing, however, the official start of the holiday festivities will be 7 p.m. Friday with the NASCAR Whelen Late Model 200.


The green flag will wave at 7 p.m. Friday night for the annual Independence Day weekend racing tradition at South Boston Speedway. The night of racing will feature three sizzling events, headlined by a 200-lap race for the NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model Stock Car Division.


Also slated for action Friday night will be the Limited Sportsman Division in a 100-lap race and the Budweiser Pure Stock Division in a 50-lap shootout.


When all the race winners have been decided, the lights around South Boston Speedway will dim and the skies will light up with the track’s annual Fireworks Extravaganza.


Fans arriving early for Friday’s action will also get a special treat, as they will be able to go trackside to meet and greet their favorite competitors during Fan Appreciation from 5:30 p.m. until 6:30 p.m.


Justin Johnson will bring a sizable point lead into the 200-lap race for the NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model Stock Car Division event. The defending champion has won seven times at America’s Hometown Track in 2010 and is over 100 points ahead of second-place Stacy Puryear.


Johnson is also in the thick of championship contention for state and national honors in the NASCAR Whelen All American Series. Johnson is currently atop the standings in the state of Virginia and is third overall in the national title hunt with nine total victories this season.


Fellow South Boston Speedway regulars Puryear and Deac McCaskill are also challenging for the Virginia title. Puryear is ninth in the state standings and McCaskill is 12th. McCaskill is third in the race for the South Boston Speedway crown.



Philip Morris, a three-time national champion, and multi-time competitor at South Boston Speedway this season, is fourth in the Virginia standings.


Tommy Peregoy leads the way in the Limited Sportsman Division heading into Friday night’s 100-lap race. He is nine points ahead of second-place place Justin Snow.


Jarrett Milam is the leader in the Budweiser Pure Stock Division. He holds a slim seven-point lead over runner-up Joe Allred. Randy Hupp is third in the standings. He is 24 points behind Allred and only one point ahead of fourth-place Daniel Crews and a mere six ahead of fifth-place Trey Crews.


Practice for all divisions will be held on Friday from 1:45 p.m. until 3:15 p.m. and qualifying time trials will get cranked up at 4:15 p.m. Grandstand gates will open at 3:30 p.m.


Advance tickets for adults are available at a cost of $15. Discount tickets will be available through 5 p.m. on Thursday, July 1. Adult admission on the day of the race will be $20. Children, ages 7-12, will be admitted for $10 and children, ages six and under, will be admitted free. Youth discounts are only valid if accompanied by a paying adult.
