South Boston Speedway News
Veteran Ronald Hill back for more ‘stout’ Late Model competition at South Boston Speedway

South Boston, VA. --

The competition here is stout. It was stout 20 years ago and not much except the names have changed. The competitors here are still as tough as you will find anywhere around.”

Veteran Late Model Stock Car Division driver Ronald Hill of Rougemont, N.C. spoke those words recently as he sat on pit wall at historic South Boston Speedway after completing a practice run around the four-tenths mile asphalt oval.

Hill, 42, has competed in the Late Model ranks for many seasons, just as his father, legendary performer Maurice Hill, did before him. And, in 2009, he is focused solely on South Boston Speedway.

“I’m not going to be racing anywhere else,” Hill said. “I think we can do alright up here. We finally figured some things out and we were running pretty good toward the end of last year.

“We would definitely like to get a couple of wins this year,” Hill added. “We could certainly use that. But it won’t be easy here. You can name off about 10 drivers who can compete for the win week-in and week-out here. I think we’re one of those that can win. We just need to make it happen.

Hill will get his first chance to see how he will fare in 2009 on Saturday afternoon when America’s Hometown Track opens the new season with the running of the NASCAR Whelen 150. In addition to the 150-lap race for the Late Model Stock Car competitors, four other races will be run on the four-tenths mile asphalt oval as well including events for the Limited Sportsman Division, twin races for the Budweiser Pure Stock Division and a shootout for the competitors in the Legendary Flathead Series.

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.

Adult tickets are priced at just $10 each for the afternoon of racing.
