South Boston Speedway News
South Boston Speedway will race under the lights for the first time in 2008 season on Saturday, April 5

South Boston, VA. --

South Boston Speedway will take a week off this weekend before returning to action on Saturday, April 5, with the running of the Randy Lajoie’s Safer Racer 150.

The second race of the 2008 season at America’s Hometown Track will feature the campaign’s first racing under the lights. The green flag for the start of NASCAR Whelen All American Series racing action on April 5, is set to fly at 7 p.m.

A total of six races will be on tap for the April 5 event, highlighted by a 150-lap race for the drivers in the Barkhouser Late Model Stock Car Division.

Roxboro, N.C. driver Justin Johnson, motoring the number 44 Frank Deiny Jr. Racing, claimed a victory in the hotly contested season-opening event. While certainly pleased with the victory, Johnson probably wasn’t overly surprised. Prior to the start of the season, Johnson said his goal was to win the track championship at South Boston Speedway and he felt confident he could score quite a few victories along the way.

“I would be surprised if we did not win six or seven races this season,” Johnson said following a preseason test session at the four-tenths mile asphalt oval. “I would say that I think we will win 10 or more races, but I don’t want to over-exaggerate anything right now.”

Other racing slated for April 5 includes a battle for the Limited Sportsman Division, twin shootouts for the Budweiser Pure Stock Division and races for the drivers in the INEX Legends Series and the touring Legendary Flatheads.

Lee Pulliam of Semora, N.C. secured a victory in the first Limited Sportsman race of the season, while Joey Connor of Halifax, Va. was the victor in the first event for the competitors in the Budweiser Pure Stock Division. While the drivers in the Legendary Flatheads Series will be making their debut at South Boston Speedway on April 5, Brad Hancock of Newport News, Va. will be bidding for his second straight triumph.

Pit gates will open April 5 at 1 p.m. with practice for all divisions beginning at 2:15 p.m. and continuing through 3:45 p.m. Grandstand gates will open at 5 p.m. and qualifying time trials will get cranked up at 5:15 p.m.

Tickets are priced at $10 for adults. Youth, ages 7-12, will be admitted for $5 and children, ages 6 and under, will be admitted free. All youth must be accompanied by a paying adult to receive discounted admission.
