Deac McCaskill hoping for track championship bid at South Boston Speedway in 2009

South Boston, VA. --

When the 2008 racing season at South Boston Speedway was winding to a close, one of the hottest competitors in the NASCAR Late Model Stock Car Division was Deac McCaskill.

The Raleigh, N.C. driver wound up third in the final points battle, but that was despite missing one race and getting off to a less-than-impressive start to the campaign.

This year, McCaskill has his sights set on a strong start and a possible run for the 2009 championship at America’s Hometown Track. He will begin his chase for the title Saturday afternoon 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 think I had a top car except for the first three races last season,” McCaskill said last week. “We still had a great season, but to try and win a championship, you have got to be able to finish every race.

“That’s our main goal this year,” the 31-year-old McCaskill added. “I want to win the championship here. I want it pretty bad.”

McCaskill owns two track championships from his racing days at Southern National Speedway in Kenly, N.C. Those are nice, however, he longs for a championship for the historic four-tenths mile asphalt oval in South Boston.

“This track, there’s just so much history here and accomplishing a track championship is so tough,” McCaskill said. “This is a neat place to race at from the people who compete here to the people who work here to the people who watch races here. It’s a special place and winning a championship is something that you will always be proud of.”

A total of four races are slated 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.
