DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - Virginia’s South Boston Speedway has come a long way since it opened for the first time on Aug. 10, 1957.
Originally a quarter-mile dirt track when it first opened for racing in 1957, the track is now a four-tenths-mile paved oval that plays host to NASCAR sanctioned weekly racing from late March through the middle of September.
South Boston’s General Manager Cathy Rice, who has worked at the speedway since 1989, says the facility plays an important role in the small local community that is void of major attractions.> More
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - Dirt racing has been taking center stage recently in the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series.
Leading the dirt racing charge not just this year, but for the last several years, is Craig VonDohren.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- It’s been a career year for Virginia’s Kres VanDyke, and the season isn’t even close to complete.
VanDyke, the reigning NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Tennessee champion, has scored 20 victories this season across three race tracks in the Southeast. At two of those tracks - Kingsport Speedway in Tennessee and Lonesome Pine Raceway in Virginia - he is also the point leader in the late model stock car division.> More
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - When you walk into Illinois’ Rockford Speedway, it becomes obvious very quickly that the track isn’t like other motorsports venues.
It’s small, just a quarter-mile in length, with 22 degrees of banking in the turns that helps create intense, high-speed racing. You could argue that there are plenty quarter-mile tracks in the United States and you’d be right, but none of them have the history that Rockford Speedway has.> More

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- Mason Diaz had high expectations entering the 2017 season at Southern National Motorsports Park, but even his own expectations couldn’t meet up to the strong season he has had thus far.
The 17-year-old from Manassas, Virginia, has had a stunningly strong rookie season thus far in the late model stock division at the Kenly, North Carolina, track. He's already collected five victories at Southern National in his No. 24 late model prepared by Mike Darne, including a sweep of twin features on May 27.> More
Philip Morris doesn’t wear a crown.
But these days, when the 52-year-old Ruckersville Va., racer straps on his helmet, he receives respect befitting a King.
On NASCAR’s local racing circuit, Morris is racing royalty. He’s enjoyed a storied career in the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series that spans more than 20 years, and his resume is peerless: Four national championships. Four Virginia championships. Nine Late Model track championships.> More
