South Boston, VA. --

South Boston Speedway will get the Memorial Day Weekend off to an exciting, fast-paced start Saturday night with the running of the Craftsman presents Charles Anderson Lawn Care Night racing program.

“We know everyone is looking forward to the holiday weekend and there is no better way to get the weekend’s festivities started than watching some of the best racing action in the area here at South Boston Speedway,” Cathy Rice, general manager at America’s Hometown Track, said. “Memorial Day weekend is a special time for our country and we here at South Boston Speedway join people across our country in paying tribute to all the members of our military.”

The first of five races in the NASCAR Whelen All American Series event will get the green flag at 7 p.m. at America’s Hometown Track.

The featured attraction of the Craftsman presents Charles Anderson Lawn Care Night program will be a 150-lap race for the drivers in the highly competitive Barkhouser Late Model Stock Car Division. The action in the premier division at the four-tenths mile oval thus far this season has been intense. Four different drivers have scored victories in the opening for Late Model events of the 2008 campaign.

Wayne Ramsey, who owns one of the four Late Model victories this season, sits atop the point standings with a six-point lead over one-time winner Justin Johnson. Former NASCAR Whelen All American Series national champion Philip Morris is third in the point standings, just one point behind Justin Johnson and two points ahead of a fourth-place tie between Eddie Johnson and C.E. Falk. Dude Gibbs and Jonathan Cash are the other two drivers who have posted wins in Late Model racing action this season.

Also slated for action Saturday night will be the Limited Sportsman Division drivers, who will battle it out in a 50-lap event. Lee Pulliam, the division’s current points leader, has posted two victories this season. Two-time defending division champion Bruce Anderson, who is second in the title chase, has claimed one victory. The other winner in the division thus far this season has been Danny Willis Jr.

Rounding out Saturday’s Craftsman presents Charles Anderson Lawn Care Night at America’s Hometown Track will be twin races for the drivers in the Budweiser Pure Stock Division and an event for the Yellow Book USA southern Vintage Modifieds.

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.
