South Boston Speedway News
Consistency in twin races Saturday night could be key to deciding SoBo’s 2009 track champion
Aug 13, 2009 - updated Aug 13th, 2009 1:36pm

South Boston, VA. --

If Nick Smith is going to maintain his position at the top of the NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model Stock Car Division standings Saturday night at South Boston Speedway, he will likely need his best effort in twin 75-lap races of the 2009 campaign.

South Boston Speedway will return to action Saturday for the running of the Sunoco Night NASCAR Whelen All American Series race program. The first race of the night will get the green flag at 7 p.m.

Highlighting the night of racing action will be a pair of 75-lap races for the Late Model Stock Car Division. Smith, a five-time winner in 2009, heads into the evening with a nine-point lead over David Quackenbush in the chase for the 2009 championship. Deac McCaskill is third in the standings, just four points behind Quackenbush and only one point ahead of fourth-place Justin Johnson.

Despite winning five races in 2009 and having some success in prior twin 75-lap events, Smith has not put together two solid runs in three previous nights of twin Late Model Stock Car racing on the four-tenths mile asphalt oval in 2009.

On April 4, Smith posted a 17th-place run in the first of two 75-lap races and followed that up with a victory in the nightcap. One month later, Smith posted finishes of sixth place and 14th place in two 75-lap events. In July, Smith won the first 75-lap race of the night, but slipped to a disappointing 17th-place finish in the closing event of the evening.

After Saturday night, only two more nights of point racing action will be held at South Boston Speedway before the 2009 division champions are crowned. Remaining events that will help decide the 2009 track champion at South Boston Speedway will be waged on Aug. 29 and Sept. 5.

Other events scheduled Saturday night include races for the Limited Sportsman Division, the Budweiser Pure Stock Division and the Southern Vintage Modifieds.

Brian Pembelton, a multi-time winner in 2009, leads the way in the battle for the Limited Sportsman Division crown. He owns a comfortable 69-point cushion over second-place Jeb Burton.

The battle for second place in the division, however, is much closer as Burton leads third-place Tommy Peregoy by only six points and fourth-place Danny Willis, Jr. by only eight points.

In the Budweiser Pure Stock Division, Chris Crosby is the current point leader, however, he has stiff competition from both Jack Milam and Mickey Cassidy. Milam is second in the standings, only five points behind Crosby and only one point ahead of third-place Cassidy.

Pit gates will open Saturday at 1 p.m. Practice for all divisions will be held from 2:15 p.m. until 3:45 p.m. Grandstand gates will open at 5 p.m. and qualifying time trials will get underway at 5:15 p.m.

Admission is $10 for adults. Youth, ages 7-12, will be admitted for $5 when accompanied by a paying adult and children, ages six and under, are admitted free with a paid adult.
