South Boston Speedway will drop the green flag on another exciting season of racing action in less than two weeks. The 2012 racing campaign at America’s Hometown Track will roar to life on Saturday, March 10, with the running of the NASCAR Whelen Late Model 300 presented by Danville Toyota.



The NASCAR Whelen Late Model 300 presented by Danville Toyota will feature the best of the best Late Model Stock Car Division competitors in the region in an event that will have the season-opening appeal of the Daytona 500 for short track competitors and fans.



In years past, the NASCAR Whelen Late Model 300 presented by Danville Toyota has closed out the season at South Boston Speedway, but the decision was made to move the event to the start of the campaign in 2012 to bring added excitement to the start of the new season for competitors and fans.



In addition to fueling the start of the season at South Boston Speedway in 2012, the NASCAR Whelen Late Model 300 presented by Danville Toyota will also be the first event in a unique tripleheader announced last week — the Virginia Late Model Triple Crown.



The Virginia Late Model Triple Crown will consist of the season-opening NASCAR Whelen Late Model 300 presented by Danville Toyota at South Boston Speedway, the Langley Heat 200 on July 28 in Hampton, Va. and the Virginia is for Racing Lovers 300 on Oct. 21 at Martinsville Speedway.



The winner of the Virginia Late Model Triple Crown this year will receive an additional $5,000. The runner-up in the competition will claim $3,000 and the third-place finisher will receive $2,000.



Points will be awarded to competitors based on their finish in the “feature” race at each site and the points will be applied. The driver with the highest point total over the course of the three races will claim the Virginia Late Model Triple Crown title.



Prior to the start of the 2012 season at America’s Hometown Track, an open practice for all divisions will be held on Saturday, March 3.



Practice will be held on March 3 from 10 a.m. until noon. Then, following a lunch break, practice will continue from 1 p.m. until 4 p.m.



A total of 17 events are scheduled at America’s Hometown Track in 2012 and season tickets for all of the exciting action in the upcoming season are currently on sale and priced at only $150.



South Boston Speedway’s upcoming campaign will be highlighted by NASCAR Whelen All American Series racing action in the Late Model Stock Car Division, Limited Sportsman Division and Budweiser Pure Stock Division.



The dates for NASCAR Whelen All American Series action at South Boston Speedway for the Late Model Stock Car Division, Limited Sportsman Division and Budweiser Pure Stock Division include April 7, May 5, May 12, May 26, June 16, July 14, July 21, Aug. 4, Sept. 1 and Sept. 15.



America’s Hometown Track will also be the scene for a ton of special events in 2012 as well.



South Boston Speedway will host the touring PASS Super Late Model Series for three events in upcoming season. Those events are slated for March 24, June 9, and Aug. 18. All three of those events will also feature twin races for the competitors in the NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model Stock Car Division.



The annual 200-lap FindItHere.com NASCAR Whelen Late Model Stock Car race and the annual Fireworks Extravaganza will be held on Tuesday, July 3. That event will also feature a 100-lap race for the Limited Sportsman Division and a 50-lap race for the Budweiser Pure Stock Division.



The NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour will visit the historic four-tenths mile asphalt oval on Saturday, April 14. That event will also feature twin races for the NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model Stock Car Division.



South Boston Speedway officials have also announced that the Modified Affordable Division (MAD) would be competing at the historic four-tenths mile asphalt oval on five dates in 2012.



The MAD Modifieds are scheduled to compete at South Boston Speedway on April 7, May 5, May 26, June 9 and July 21.
