South Boston Speedway News
McCaskill hopes to continue hot streak Saturday when racing action resumes at South Boston Speedway

South Boston, VA. --

Wayne Ramsey and Justin Johnson may be locked in a dogfight for the top spot in the Barkhouser Late Model Stock Car Division standings at South Boston Speedway, but Deac McCaskill is arguably the division’s hottest driver at this point of the campaign.

In his past seven NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Barkhouser Late Model Stock Car Division events at America’s Hometown Track, McCaskill has not finished worst than fourth. During that span, he has recorded one victory, four runner-up finishes, placed third once and fourth on one occasion.

McCaskill was fourth on May 24 and followed that up with runner-up finishes on May 31, June 15 and June 22 before scoring his first victory of the season on July 3.

The Raleigh, N.C. competitor hopes to keep his recent surge in the Late Model ranks going Saturday when South Boston Speedway returns to action for the running of the Southside Virginia Community College 150 race program. The first event of the night will get the green flag at 7 p.m.

“We’ve been on a pretty good roll of late at South Boston,” McCaskill said this past weekend, while enjoying an open date from racing at the four-tenths mile asphalt oval. “It was good to get that win [July 3]. We had been close, but hadn’t won one until then. And, we have followed that up with some pretty good finishes since then.”

Indeed. During twin 75-lap races for the Barkhouser Late Model Stock Car Division on July 12, McCaskill posted finishes of second and third.

“We felt pretty good about those,” McCaskill said. “Anytime you get finishes like that at South Boston, you’ve got to be pretty happy.”

Ramsey and Johnson each scored wins in the twin events on July 12. Ramsey enters racing action this weekend with a slim 13-point edge over Johnson. Dude Gibbs is third in the title chase, but leads the hard-charging McCaskill by only 18 points in the season-long title chase.

McCaskill would likely be more of a factor in the championship chase had he not missed one event this season and posted finishes of 23rd on May 10 and eighth on March 22.

The competitors in the Limited Sportsman Division will return to action Saturday evening as well. Lee Pulliam, a four-time winner this season, is attempting to end the two-year championship reign of Bruce Anderson, who scored his third triumph of the season on July 12. Pulliam placed second in the July 12 race.

Also scheduled for action this weekend will be the Budweiser Pure Stock Division, the Yellow Book USA Southern Vintage Modifieds and the INEX Legends Series.

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.
