Rain washes out SBS race; event rescheduled for Thursday

Thunderstorms with accompanying heavy rain forced South Boston Speedway officials to postpone Wednesday night’s Dr. and Mrs. Maresca of St. Lawrence Radiology Presents Sellers Construction 200 racing program and reschedule it for Thursday night (July 4) at 7 p.m.

Practice will start Thursday at 2:30 p.m. and will go until 4:00 p.m. Qualifying time trials will start at 4:30 p.m., and a special Fan Appreciation event will be held trackside at 5:30 p.m. The first race of the night is scheduled to start at 7 p.m.

Grandstand gates will open and ticket sales will start at 3:30 p.m. Adult general admission tickets are priced at $20 each. Youths ages 7-12 will be admitted for $10 when accompanied by a paying adult. Kids ages six and under will be admitted free when accompanied by a paying adult.

The Dr. and Mrs. Maresca of St. Lawrence Radiology Presents The Sellers Construction 200 racing program will feature the longest and richest races of the points season for South Boston Speedway’s three top racing divisions.

A 200-lap race for the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Late Model Stock Car Division paying $5,000 to the winner will headline the night’s racing action. Also on the program are a 100-lap Limited Sportsman Division race and a 50-lap race for the drivers in the Budweiser Pure Stock Division.

Following the night’s racing action, fans will be treated to a dazzling Fourth of July fireworks display that is annually one of the biggest and best in the area.
