The first week of the 2013 South Boston Speedway NASCAR racing season was filled with action, and the excitement will return to America’s Hometown Track on Saturday.
South Boston Speedway will host the NASCAR Whelen Late Model 150 racing program on Saturday, with the event featuring an afternoon starting time of 2 p.m.
The featured attraction of the day will be a 150-lap race for the drivers in the NASCAR Whelen All American Series Late Model Stock Car Division.
In the season-opening twin 100-lap races on March 9, defending NASCAR Whelen All American Series national champion Lee Pulliam and C.E. Falk each scored victories and assumed the top two positions in the early-season battle for the 2013 NASCAR Whelen All American Late Model Stock Car Division title at South Boston Speedway.
Also featured as part of the four-race program on Saturday will be events for the Limited Sportsman Division, the Budweiser Pure Stock Division and the Modified Division.
Danny Willis Jr. won the opening Limited Sportsman Division race of the season on March 9, edging Joey Throckmorton for the triumph.
Joe Allred III was the winner of the season-opening Budweiser Pure Stock Division event, while Randy Hupp motored to a runner-up finish.
The March 23 event will mark the first race of the season at the historic four-tenths mile asphalt oval for the Modified Division.
