In celebration of Mother’s Day on Sunday, South Boston Speedway officials have announced that all moms will be admitted to the NASCAR Late Model 100 racing program for just $5.
The night of racing will feature a 100-lap battle for the drivers in the NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model Stock Car Division, along with events for the Limited Sportsman Division, the Budweiser Pure Stock Division and the Hornets Division.
