COEBURN, Va. – Rain won once again last Saturday, August 2 at Lonesome Pine Raceway, forcing the cancellation of another race. The Pine will try again this Saturday, August 9 to get the green flag in the air.

The Wallace Kia Late Model Stock Car division will take on the high banks twice with twin 40-lap features. Street Stock, Mod-4, Pure-4, Rookie Pure-4 and Pure Street/Iron Warriors divisions will also be in action. The annual Faster Pastor race will also take place this Saturday for Whelen and Belcher Insurance Agency Night at The Pine.
