South Boston Speedway News
Peyton Sellers, Austin Dillon slated to challenge SoBo’s Late Model competitors Saturday night in Earth Day 150

South Boston, VA. --

The talent-filled Late Model Stock Car Division will become even more competitive Saturday night when the green flag waves for the start of the Earth Day 150 NASCAR Whelen All American Series race program.

NASCAR Camping World Series competitors Peyton Sellers and Austin Dillon are scheduled to be in the field for the 150-lap Barkhouser Late Model Stock Car Division race, which will be the featured attraction of the four-race program on April 26. The first race of the evening will get the green flag at 7 p.m.

Sellers, the 2005 NASCAR Weekly Series national champion and winner of the track title at America’s Hometown Track that same year, along with Dillon, the grandson of successful NASCAR car owner Richard Childress, should add even more spice to a field of Late Model Stock Cars that waged quite a battle in season-opening action on March 22. In that event, the lead changed hands several times in the closing 25 laps before Justin Johnson of Roxboro, N.C. emerged with a victory over Philip Morris of Ruckersville, Va.

Sellers will be motoring the No. 90, Sandy Stigall-owned machine Saturday night. It’s a ride he plans to run on select nights at America’s Hometown Track this season when he isn’t driving the No. 44 Casella Waste Systems Chevrolet in the Camping World Series in 2008.

“Were looking forward to it,” the 24-year-old Sellers said recently when asked about his appearances at South Boston Speedway in 2008. “It’s always good to race at home and South Boston is home for us.”

Dillon turns 18-years-old this week and is coming off a Camping World Series victory last weekend at Greenville-Pickens Speedway in South Carolina. In that race, he drove a black Chevrolet bearing the No. 3 of former NASCAR great Dale Earnhardt. Childress had maintained the rights to the number and decided Dillon would be the first to compete with the No. 3 in a NASCAR traveling series following Earnhardt’s tragic death at Daytona several years ago.

Sellers claimed Rookie of the Year honors in the East Series of NASCAR Grand National Division racing in 2006, while securing one victory. Last year, Sellers finished third in the division’s points chase, while recording five top-five finishes and 10 runs in the top 10 during the campaign. Sellers capped off his successful 2007 season with a runner-up finish in the Toyota All-Star Showdown in California.

Former NASCAR Grand National champion Randy Lajoie will also be on hand Saturday at South Boston Speedway as a special guest for the event.

Other racing action slated Saturday night at the four-tenths mile asphalt oval include a pair of 50-lap races for the drivers in the Limited Sportsman Division and also an event for the Budweiser Pure Stock Division competitors.

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.
