South Boston Speedway News
Action Heats Up At South Boston With PASS Super Late Models

Southboston, Va --

(June 2, 2016) – As the weather heats up, so does the racing action at South Boston Speedway this Saturday night.

After two off weekends, action returns to the .4-mile oval in a huge way with a 150-lap race for the PASS Super Late Models and twin 75-lap events for South Boston’s competitive NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Late Model Stock cars.

It is the first of two visits by the PASS Super Late Models in 2016 and as always, the series brings fast race cars and competitive racing.

Five PASS events this year have produced five different winners and just 10 points separate the top-two positions in the points standings.

Kodie Conner, who doesn’t have a win in 2016, leads the PASS points, 10 points ahead of Matt Craig, who won at Caraway Speedway.

Tate Fogleman, whose last name should be familiar to South Boston fans, is third in the points. His dad is Jay Fogleman, who has raced many times at South Boston.

Another second generation driver, Brandon Setzer, scored a PASS victory at Dillon Motor Speedway earlier in the season. His father is Dennis Setzer, long-time NASCAR Truck Series competitor, who also raced at South Boston in Late Models.

South Boston’s Late Models will return to one of the most competitive seasons in recent memory at the historic southern Virginia track. There have been four different winners in eight races. Track and NASCAR Whelen All-American Series national points leader Matt Bowling has four wins, Austin Thaxton two, and Bobby McCarty and Danny Willis Jr. one each.

But four different winners in eight races doesn’t come close to painting a true picture of how close the racing has been. There has been very little follow-the-leader racing. Two wide, three wide, and yes, even occasionally four-wide racing has become part of everyday life at South Boston. At least three times so far this year, four different drivers have had a legitimate shot to win the race on the final lap, even the final turn of the final lap.

“I think fans have gotten their money’s worth,” Mark Wertz, who is second in points, said earlier this year. “At least from my seat, it’s been pretty exciting.”

Joey Throckmorton, who has dominated the Limited Sportsman division at South Boston Speedway, will be making the most of an off week in that division by moving up for the Late Model races for the twin 75-lappers.

In addition to the 150-lap PASS Super Late Model race and twin 75-lap races for the Late Models, there will also be a 15-lap race for the Budweiser Hornets.

Advance adult general admission tickets are $10 each and may be purchased at the South Boston Speedway office until 5 p.m. on Friday, June 3. Adult general admission tickets will be $15 the day of the race. Youth ages 7-12 will be admitted for $5 and children six and under will be admitted free with a paying adult.
