South Boston Speedway News
Racing action at SoBo will kickoff Memorial Day holiday weekend

SOUTH BOSTON, VA. — South Boston Speedway will kickoff the Memorial Day holiday weekend Saturday night with the running of the Italian Delight Family Restaurant Twin 75 NASCAR Whelen All American Series racing program.

 

A total of five events are slated for the evening of racing action with the first scheduled to get cranked up at 7 p.m.

 

The featured attractions of the evening will be a pair of 75-lap races for the drivers in the NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model Stock Car Division. That will give competitors two chances to try and halt the impressive seven-race win streak currently held by Philip Morris.

 

Morris, a multi-time NASCAR Whelen All-American Series national champion and the driver currently in second place in the chase for the national crown this year, has reeled off wins in all but one NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model Stock Car Division event at South Boston Speedway in 2011.

 

Two weeks ago, Morris rolled to his seventh straight victory despite the fact that there was a $500 bounty on him if any other driver could snap the win streak.

 

That bounty has increased to $1,000 for Saturday’s Italian Delight Family Restaurant Twin 75 racing program,

 

Any driver who can score a victory over Morris on Saturday can collect the bounty, plus the normal first-place prize money. Morris must still be competing at the end of the race for a driver to claim the bounty and Morris himself 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 a eighth consecutive win.

 

With the seven-race win streak, Morris has now amassed a 79-point advantage over second-place Justin Johnson, the two-time defending NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model Stock Car Division champion at America’s Hometown Track.

 

Josh Oakley is third in the standings and trails Johnson by only four points. Frank Deiny, Jr. is fourth and is 12 points behind Oakley.

 

Other races scheduled Saturday night include events for the Limited Sportsman Division, the Budweiser Pure Stock Division and a special appearance by the Legendary Flathead Series.

 

Brian Pembelton, who is coming off a victory two weeks ago, leads the Limited Sportsman Division standings by a mere three points over defending champion Justin Snow, while Danny Willis Jr. is third and is only six points behind Snow.

 

Joe Allred, a two-time winner two weeks ago, is first in the Budweiser Pure Stock Division standings. He is 12 points ahead of Trey Crews and 19 points ahead of third-place Randy Hupp.

 

Pit registration will begin at 12:30 p.m. on Saturday. Practice for all divisions will be held from 2:30 p.m. until 4:30 p.m. and qualifying time trials will get underway at 5:30 p.m. Grandstand gates will open at 5 p.m. and admission will be $10 for adults and children six and under will be admitted free with a paid adult.
