South Boston Speedway News
Limited Sportsman champion sets sights on Late Model ranks in 2009 at South Boston Speedway

South Boston, VA. --

After a banner campaign in 2008 in the Limited Sportsman Division at South Boston Speedway, Lee Pulliam of Semora, N.C. is taking a step up to the NASCAR Late Model Stock Car Division in 2009.

The 20-year-old Pulliam will roll out his Late Model Stock Car on Saturday, March 14, when South Boston Speedway opens the 2009 campaign with a special afternoon starting time of 2 p.m. for the running of the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series 150.

“I can’t hardly wait,” Pulliam said last weekend during an open practice session at America’s Hometown Track. “I just want to be real competitive. I’d like to be in the top five and challenge for a win or two before the season is over. A win here at this track is special no matter if it is in Late Model or Limited. You’ve got to work hard to win either way.”

Pulliam did just that last year, reeling off seven victories to defeat two-time defending Limited Sportsman champion Bruce Anderson of South Boston by a mere seven points in the title chase.

“That was real special to me,” Pulliam said. “It came down to the last race of the season and I won and he finished second in that last one. It was pretty big.”

Pulliam knows that his qualifying run on Saturday will be critical in his bid to claim a top five finish for the day.

“The competition here is so tough that if you start outside of the top five then it’s hard to work your way to the front,” Pulliam said. “I want to be able to qualify in the top five and I think if I can do that, I will have a good chance of achieving my goal of a top five finish.”

A total of four races are on tap for Saturday’s season-opening event. In addition to the NASCAR Late Model Stock Car Division race, events are also slated for the Limited Sportsman Division, the Budweiser Pure Stock Division and the Southern Vintage Modifieds.

Pit gates will open Saturday at 9 a.m. and practice for all divisions will be held from 10:30 a.m. until noon. Grandstand gates will open at noon and qualifying time trials will get cranked up at 12:45 p.m.

Season tickets good for all events on the 2009 schedule are still available and are priced at just $175.
