SOUTH BOSTON, VA. — What was already going to be an
action-packed night of racing at South Boston Speedway on Saturday, Aug. 31 has

Division will share the spotlight on Aug. 31 with the PASS Super Late Model
Series, which will return to the historic four-tenths mile asphalt oval. The
PASS Super Late Models were slated to battle in an event on Aug. 17; however,

Also scheduled as part of the Italian Delight Family

Division competitors battle it out.
Pulliam, the defending NASCAR Whelen All American
Series national champion, currently leads the national title standings this year
by 32 points over Deac McCaskill.

South Boston Speedway General Manager Cathy Rice has
said that Pulliam must still be competing at the end of the race for a driver to
claim the bounty, and she added that Pulliam 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 his 15th victory of the campaign at America’s Hometown
