Twin 75 lap races for the NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model Stock Car Division will be the featured attraction of the night Saturday, May 9 when South Boston Speedway returns to action with the running of the Charles Anderson Lawn Care NASCAR Late Model Twin 75s.
Six action-packed races will be run under the lights at America’s Hometown Track. The first event of the evening will begin at 7 p.m.
In honor of Mother’s Day Weekend all mothers will be admitted for $5 as part of “Mom’s Night Out” at America’s Hometown Track.
In addition to the twin 75-lap races for the NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model Stock Car Division, other races featured Saturday night include 50-lap events for the Limited Sportsman Division and the Modified Division, a 30-lap race for the Budweiser Pure Stock Division competitors and a 15-lap event for the Budweiser Hornets Division.
The region’s top NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model Stock Car Division will, once again, be on hand for the racing action. The opening five NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model Stock Car Division events of the 2015 season have featured four different winners.
