Late Models, Limiteds, Pure Stocks resume racing action Saturday night at South Boston Speedway

South Boston,VA. --

After a four-week layoff, the competitors in South Boston Speedway’s main divisions will return to action Saturday night, April 26, for the running of the Earth Day 150 NASCAR Whelen All American Series racing program.

The first of four events slated for action on the four-tenths mile asphalt oval will get the green flag at 7 p.m. Former NASCAR Grand National champion Randy Lajoie will be on hand as a special guest for the event.

Highlighting the Earth Day 150 will be a 150-lap race for the competitors in the Barkhouser Late Model Stock Car Division. Twin 50-lap shootouts are planned for the Limited Sportsman Division drivers and a battle is also on tap for the Budweiser Pure Stock Division.

In the first Late Model Stock Car Division battle of the 2008 campaign on March 22, Roxboro N.C. driver Justin Johnson held off Philip Morris of Ruckersville, Va., a former South Boston Speedway track champ and NASCAR Weekly Series national champion, to score his second career victory at America’s Hometown Track. Racing action in the Late Model event was furious throughout the night and saw several lead changes in the final 25 circuits before Johnson grabbed the advantage for good with seven laps remaining.

Lee Pulliam of Semora, N.C. held off two-time defending champion Bruce Anderson of South Boston, Va. to win the season-opening event for the Limited Sportsman Division. Pulliam had to fend off Anderson and Justin Snow of Danville, Va. in a two-lap sprint to the finish that followed the race’s final caution period.

Joey Conner of Halifax, Va. breezed to victory in the initial race of the season in the highly competitive Budweiser Pure Stock Division, but can expect a host of challengers to be ready to battle him for the win on April 26.

Pit gates will open Saturday 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.
