When the engines are cranked up at South Boston Speedway on Saturday, May 3, six action-packed races will be on tap as part of the America’s Hometown Track will host the Charles Anderson Lawn Care presents Italian Delight Family Restaurant program.
The featured events of the night will be a pair of 75-lap shootouts for the drivers in the NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model Stock Car Division.
The night of racing, which will get underway at 7 p.m., will also feature events for the Limited Sportsman Division, the Budweiser Pure Stock Division, the Modified Division and the touring Legendary Ford Flatheads.
The action through the first five NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model Stock Car Division races of the season at the historic four-tenths mile asphalt oval has been exciting as four different winners have visited Victory Lane.
Former NASCAR Whelen All American Series national champion Peyton Sellers won the first two Late Model Stock Car events of the season at America’s Hometown Track and he sits in first place in the chase for the championship. Sellers, however, only has a two-point lead over Matt Bowling, a former NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model Stock Car Division champion at South Boston Speedway.
The third-place spot in the standings is occupied by Bobby McCarty, while one-time winner Josh Oakley sits in fourth place, a mere two points ahead of fifth-place Austin Thaxton, who has also motored to one win this season.
Aided by one victory thus far, Trey Crews leads the Limited Sportsman Division standings. Crews, however, only has a slim one-point edge over Tommy Peregoy in the standings. There is currently a tie for third place between J.D. Eversole and Daryn Cockran, while Danny Willis Jr. is in fifth place. Willis, the defending division champion, owns one victory this season and is only three points behind the third-place tie.
Two-time winner Greg Autry leads Johnny Layne and Bruce Mayo in the chase for the Budweiser Pure Stock Division crown, while Jimmy Humblet, a one-time winner in the Modified Division, leads Mike Rudy by five points in the standings.
