Two Virginia Tracks Prepare for Exciting 2017 Season with New Events

dominion_sobo

Two NASCAR Whelen All-American Series short tracks located just 150-miles apart from each other go into 2017 with almost identical schedules and look to continue the success each had the previous year! While Dominion is looking to get their second year under their belt, South Boston Speedway is looking to open its doors for their 60th season. After going through some major renovations towards the end of 2016 and through the off-season, SoBo will great its fans in 2017 with upgraded bleachers along with a brand new racing surface.

With just fourteen dates on the calendar in 2017, South Boston Speedway officials plan to pack each of those weekends with as much racing action as you can handle with the NASCAR Late Model Stocks running plenty of Twin features along with a good mix of long distance races. Returning the first weekend of July is the Thunder Road Harley-Davidson 200-lap Late Model feature that will surely draw some of the biggest names in LMSC racing as they all fight for the big check. Lee Pulliam has been the man to beat for the past five years and we bet he will be back to defend his crown.

The NASCAR K&N East series will be making a stop at Virginia historic 4/10th mile oval in 2017. A pair of Twin-100 lap race, yes we typed that correctly, two points paying races will be held on the same track on the same day for the K&N series when they make their trip to South Boston, Virginia May 6th. In addition to the K&N series, South Boston will play host to the CARS Tour for the first time in the series three-year history under the new system. The race in September is scheduled to be the season finale for the CARS Tour. Returning to SoBo during the summer will be the PASS South series for their 150-lap feature.

After a vastly successful rookie season, Dominion Raceway enters 2017 with one of the most compact schedules in Virginia running multiple divisions just about every weekend of the season. Officially kicking their 2017 campaign off on March 25th with the CARS Tour coming to town, Dominion Raceway looks to highlight over twenty-three weekends of racing from March all the way to October this upcoming year.

Mirroring a schedule very similar to South Boston, Dominion Raceway will look to continue to draw the large car counts they saw in 2016 as Nick Smith will look to continue his dominance on the high bank 4/10th mile oval. Car counts help play a major role in last years State and National points races and with so many races scheduled in 2017, we have a feeling the track may have the same effect on drivers and the NWAAS points battle becomes clearer.

In addition to the NASCAR Late Model Stocks, returning to Dominion are you Dominion Stocks, Modifieds, UCAR, INEX Legend & Bandos. Special events will also be held on select weekends for both the Mini Mods (a division very similar to if not the same as Mini Stocks in North Carolina) as well as the mini cup cars. The USAC Midgets are also on the schedule to return to Dominion Raceway twice during 2017.

A complete schedule for both tracks can be found below or on their websites. Of course, all events are subject to change at the tracks discretion.
