"South Boston has been a good track for us in the past and hopefully it will be good to us again. Qualifying up front puts you in a great position to win. But, qualifying towards the rear makes it hard to stay on the lead lap. Also, since South Boston is so short and tight, passing is difficult. I am very excited about racing at South Boston again and possibly our first 1999 victory." --Larry Pearson; Driver No.00 Cheez-It Pontiac

* South Boston Veteran

By starting the South Boston 300 this weekend, Larry Pearson will make his 17th South Boston start in the 34 Busch Grand National races held at the speedway. Pearson is tied for fourth for the total number of BGN races won at South Boston. He hopes to make Saturday's South Boston 300 victory number four at the speedway and his first in the No.00 Cheez-It Pontiac.

* Larry Pearson Grandstand

South Boston Speedway honored Pearson by naming a grandstand in turn two after the Busch Series legend. "We wanted to honor Larry Pearson for his accomplishments here at South Boston" stated Hayne Dominick of Chesapeake Motorsports. "Larry was chosen because he is a past winner and he is also an active BGN competitor." Pearson leads all active drivers with three victories at South Boston.

* No.00 Cheez-It Pontiac

The No.00 Cheez-It team is taking the same Pontiac that Pearson piloted last month at Richmond International Raceway. Pearson advanced 13 spots en route to a 25th place finish, in the Hardees 250.
