The Weekly Racer Announces 2015 Touring Series Schedule (Pt. 2)
Newport News, VA – Round two of the Touring series will kick of early in July with one of my favorite mini series in Late Model Stock Car racing. Just as the summer starts to really heat up so will the action around the mid-atlantic in all of the divisions of racing! We will continue our touring series at South Boston Speedway for their Independence Day celebration as well as the opening leg of the VA Triple Crown series. Lets take you through the final five race of The Weekly Racers Touring Series…
6. We head back down route 58 and on our way to South Boston Speedway to kick off one of them most exciting racing series in the state of Virginia. In a tag team effort between SoBo, Langley, and Martinsville we will kick off round one of three in the Triple Crown series. I am estimating thirty plus late model teams to pack the pits as they all battle to win the 200 lap race. Last year saw some very exciting racing as well as some big names running into trouble early. It will be interesting to see who makes it back and who takes home the trophy!

7. What better way to keep the summer going than one of THE most highly anticipated races of the summer! The weather played the spoiler in the 2014 edition, raining twice before the green flag was able to be displayed to the field. This did not take away from the fact more than 35 cars hit the pavement and everywhere you looked on the track cars were racing. I expect nothing less this year, as a matter of fact I expect even more! Maybe this year will be the year Lee Pullman makes his debut now that Dalton Sergeant – who ran very well for most of the race in 2014 – is running out of his stables. You can all but expect the same exhilarating racing from regulars like Waltz, Edwards, Wertz and Wyatt. I am hoping to see the return of McCaskill, Ankrum, and Sellers! If the Hampton Heat 200 is not on your calendar of events to attend in 2015 I highly recommend you amend it now while it’s still early.
8. 2014 marked the first time I saw this series in action, better yet first time I saw Super Late Models in action. I don’t want to sound corny in talking about the series but I really liked just about everything they did running the series. Most interesting part was when they inverted the top ten after qualifying with a pill draw. Was a great way to shake things up and create some great racing. Even though the turnout was not as high as some of the previous races it was still some exciting racing. The PASS South Series will return back to SoBo for their second 150 lap race of 2015 and we will be there again to bring you the coverage.
9. Not only nearing the end of racing season but the end of The Touring Series we will return to one of our favorite tracks down in Robersonville, North Carolina. The Late Models will be back in action as well as the Modified’s. We could also see the addition of more division through out the year as my sources at the speedway tell me they are always looking for new divisions to add to the schedule to make a better show for the fans! At this point in the year the nights will start to cool down providing for more horsepower and better grip.
10. Last but certainly not least on our ten race schedule is the mecca of all Late Model racing! To take a line from the World of Outlaws… “All asphalt roads lead to Martinsville!” A two-day event will certainly draw drivers from all over the country as they will take on the likes of the ‘Paperclip’ for what could be a total of 300 laps. Last year saw plenty of drama along with a ton of torn up race cars. We also saw a lot of great racing up front from names we have known for years as well as those drivers who are looking to make a name for themselves.
