South Boston Speedway News
USARacing Pro Cup Series will invade South Boston Speedway Saturday night for 250-lap shootout

South Boston, VA. --

The USARacing Pro Cup Series will invade South Boston Speedway Saturday night for the ninth event of the 2009 schedule. The South Boston 250 will get the green flag at 7 p.m.

David Wilson, a Florida Late Model Stock Car champion, claimed a victory at Hickory Motor Speedway late last month in the eighth race of the 2009 season for the USARacing Pro Cup Series.

Wilson was the top qualifier for the event and made a late-race pass of series point leader Clay Rogers to score the victory in the Hickory 250 presented by Calico Coatings.

Rookie of the Year contender Lucas Ransone grabbed the lead in Hickory on the opening lap and led for 30 circuits before giving the top spot away to Rogers.

Drew Herring, the 2008 Rookie of the Year, will likely be in the field Saturday night at South Boston Speedway. Herring, who had a top-five finish at Motor Mile Speedway in the seventh race of the campaign, got caught up in a crash on lap 106 in Hickory, while running in the top 10. That incident caused his night to go downhill after that.

“I just had a streak of bad luck,” Herring said. “We got caught up in a wreck and messed some stuff up on the right front, then we got spun.

“But the guys kept digging, making adjustments and doing the best they could with what we had,” Herring added. “Then, we dropped a cylinder and you could just hear the metal inside it tearing up. By the time we pulled the car in, the engine died and that was the end of our night.”

In addition to the 250-lap race for the USARacing ProCup Series competitors, there will also be an event staged on the four-tenths mile asphalt oval for the touring Rolling Thunder Modifieds.

Practice for the USARacing Pro Cup Series and the Rolling Thunder Modifieds will be held Saturday afternoon from 12 noon until 2:55 p.m. Qualifying time trials for the two divisions will get underway at 4 p.m. and will be followed at 5:45 p.m. by a on-track autograph session for fans.

The South Boston 250 will get the green flag at 7 p.m. and will be followed by the 75-lap Rolling Thunder Modified Series event.

Adult general admission is $15 if purchased at the speedway prior to 5 p.m. Friday, August 7th. Adult general admission price will be $20 on race day. Youth, ages 7-12, will be admitted for $10 and children, ages six and under, will be admitted free. Youth discounts are only valid if accompanied by a paying adult.
