Southboston, Va --
The end of the 2014 season at South Boston Speedway is nearing; however, before the curtain closes on another banner campaign, one more night of exciting NASCAR racing action is scheduled on the historic four-tenths mile asphalt oval.
The final event of the season for America’s Hometown Track is scheduled Saturday, Sept. 13. The season finale will feature the NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour 150 and the NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model Stock Car Division.
The first race of the night on Sept. 13 will get the green flag at 7 p.m.
The NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour will be making its second appearance of the season at South Boston Speedway, and the NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model Stock Car Division competitors will be bidding for their final positions in the track’s championship point standings.
Former NASCAR Whelen All American Series national champion Peyton Sellers will bid to secure his second NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model Stock Car Division championship at South Boston Speedway.
Sellers has amassed five wins this season and owns a comfortable lead at the top of the standings.
Former track champion Matt Bowling is second in the title chase. He owns a 38-point edge over third-place Austin Thaxton. Josh Oakley is fourth in the championship chase. He is 12 points behind Oakley and 16 points ahead of two-time defending NASCAR Whelen All American Series national champion Lee Pulliam, who owns the fifth-place spot.
When the NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour made its first appearance at South Boston Speedway in April, Andy Seuss swiped the lead from pole sitter Danny Bohn on the initial circuit and then fended off late challenges from Kyle Ebersole and George Brunnhoelzl III to claim the victory.
Practice for competitors will begin Sept. 13 at 1 p.m. and continue until 3 p.m. Grandstand gates will open at 3:30 p.m. and qualifying time trials will get cranked up at 4 p.m. A driver autograph session is planned to begin at 6 p.m. and continue until 6:45 p.m.
Advance tickets, priced at $10 for adults, are currently on sale at the speedway office. Advance tickets will remain on sale through Friday, Sept. 12.
Adult general admission on the day of the race will be $15. Youth, ages 7-12, will be admitted for $5, and children ages six and under will be admitted free with a paid adult.
