South Boston Speedway is readying for a return visit by the PASS Super Late Model Series on Saturday. The visit will be the second of three planned appearances by the PASS series at America’s Hometown Track in the 2013 campaign.
The exciting night of racing will also feature twin 75-lap races for the drivers in the NASCAR Whelen All American Series Late Model Stock Car Division and a battle for the touring Legends Cars.
The four-race PASS Super Late Model 150 program will get cranked up at 7 p.m.
Prior to green flag racing action at 7 p.m., a Fan Appreciation Session will be held trackside from 5:45 p.m. until 6:45 p.m. to enable fans to visit with their favorite competitors.
When the PASS Super Late Model Series made its first stop at South Boston Speedway on May 11, Ross Kenseth, son of NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Matt Kenseth, scored the win in a 150-lap shootout.
Kenseth grabbed the lead on lap 135 and held off Kyle Grissom to take the checkered flag. Jay Fogleman, Preston Peltier and Kyle Moon rounded out the top five finishers.
The May 11 PASS Super Late Model Series event at the historic four-tenths mile asphalt oval featured four different race leaders, with the lead swapping hands nine times. Trevor Noles led 69 laps and Trey Mitchell rode out front for 50 laps.
When the NASCAR Whelen All American Series Late Model Stock Car Division drivers hit the historic four-tenths mile asphalt for their two 75-lap events, the chase for the 2013 South Boston Speedway championship will continue.
Defending NASCAR Whelen All American Series national champion Lee Pulliam, who has won eight times this season at South Boston Speedway, currently leads the standings.
Bobby McCarty is in second place in the standings, and is 38 points ahead of Dustin Storm. Former multi-time NASCAR Whelen All American Series national champion Philip Morris and Austin Thaxton are tied for fourth in the standings. They trail Storm by 12 points.
Grandstand gates will open Saturday at 4:30 p.m. Qualifying time trials will also begin at 4:30 p.m. Practice for the competing divisions will be held Saturday from 2 p.m. until 4 p.m.
Advance tickets for Saturday’s PASS Super Late Model 150 racing program are currently on sale and priced at just $10 each for adults. Advance tickets can be purchased at the South Boston Speedway office through 5 p.m. on Friday.
