South Boston Speedway News
Hotly contested championship chases resume Saturday night at America’s Hometown Track

South Boston, VA. --

The tight battles for the NASCAR Whelen All American Series track championships in the Barkhouser Late Model Stock Car Division and the Limited Sportsman Division at South Boston Speedway will resume Saturday night, July 12 at South Boston Speedway.

America’s Hometown Track will return to action with the running of the Miss Utility Night race program. The first of five events slated on the four-tenths mile asphalt oval will get the green flag at 7 p.m.

Highlighting the night of short track racing will be a pair of 75-lap races for the competitors in the Barkhouser Late Model Stock Car Division. The two events could play a big role in who wins the season-long battle for the division championship.

Wayne Ramsey, who owned the point lead in the Barkhouser Late Model Stock Car Division earlier this season, returned to the top of the standings on July 3, when he finished fourth in the Bailey’s Late Model 200. Ramsey’s finish on July 3, coupled with an 18th-place showing by Justin Johnson, boosted him to the top of the leader board.

Johnson, who was involved in an early-race, multi-car accident on July 3, slipped to second in the title chase, just 11 points behind Ramsey. Jonathan Bailey is third in the standings, but leads fourth-place Dude Gibbs by only three points. Another three points back in fifth place is C.E. Falk.

Two-time Limited Sportsman Division champion Bruce Anderson entered action at South Boston Speedway on July 3 with the points lead in his bid for a third consecutive title. Anderson, who owns two victories on the four-tenths mile oval this season, was leading with just over one lap remaining in the 100-lap race on July 3 when his engine expired, relegating him to a ninth-place finish.

Four-time winner Lee Pulliam capitalized on Anderson’s misfortune with a second-place performance, which boosted him back to the top of the points standings. Pulliam leads Anderson by eight points heading into this week’s 50-lap clash. Tommy Peregoy, Brian Pembelton and Steve Collins round out the top five in the division standings. Peregoy’s lead over fourth-place Pembleton is a mere five points.

Rounding out the Miss Utility Night racing program on Saturday will be events for the Budweiser Pure Stock Division and the INEX Legends Series. In Pure Stock competition this season, six different drivers have motored to Victory Lane, including Courtney Crosby, who claimed the division’s 50-lap event on July 3.

Pit gates will open July 12 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.
