Weekly racers return to action May 10 for Puckett Dodge Night at South Boston

SOUTH BOSTON, Va. (May 8, 2003)-- After a one-week hiatus, the NASCAR Dodge Weekly Series at Big Daddy's South Boston Speedway returns to action May 10 with Puckett Dodge Night presented by Arctic Cat. The NASCAR Late Models will compete in twin 110s, with the Sheetz Limited Sportsman cars racing for 50 laps. The Pure Stock division has a 30-lap race scheduled.

Woody Howard is the most recent Late Model winner at South Boston, but Jimmy Mullins owns the points lead. Philip Morris trails Mullins by a slim four points. Mechanical woes caused Dean Ward to relinquish the points lead following the April 26 event, but he remains tightly in the championship hunt, only six points behind Mullins. Wade Day, the defending NASCAR Dodge Weekly Series Atlantic Region champion, and Jason Dickerson round out the top five.

Tommy Peregoy finished second in the April 26 Pepsi Night, but inherited the win after a post-race disqualification. Peregoy also sits in the runner-up spot in points, following Wayne Roach by 22 points. The remainder of the top five includes Jonathan Cash, Bill Moshenek and rookie Bruce Anderson. Only 48 points separate the top five in Sheetz Limited Sportsman points.

Tommy Wooldridge and Billy Goble claimed the April 26 twin bill for the Pure Stock division, but the pair is now tied for the lead in that division's points standings. Scott Phillips, Donald Glass and Lee Anderson complete the top five, all within striking distance of the lead duo.

Grandstand gates for Puckett Dodge Night presented by Arctic Cat open at 5 p.m., with qualifying scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Green flag for the first race is at 7 p.m. Tickets are $10 for adults, and $5 for youth age 10 to 15. Children nine and under are free. Children age four to seven are invited to participate in the Pepsi Racing for Kids Challenge at 6 p.m.
