Feature Notebook: 

Jeff Fultz won tonight's PASS 150 at SoBo. Felt took the lead after Preston Peltier didn't come up to speed and he took advantage and got the lead. With the win Fultz becomes the 50th different winner in the PASS South Series.

A big wreck with 25 laps remaining took out several drivers.  Peltier had a battery problem so we heard from the track and that helped trigger the wreck as drivers behind got impatient.

Matt Craig rebounded to finish eighth and added to his PASS South point lead.

Matt Bowling swept the Late Model Stock events.

Pre-Feature Notebook:  Tate Fogleman and Vinnie Miller led the practice rounds here on Friday at South Boston. Preston Peltier is the only former winners at SoBo in the field today.  Only one driver, Ross Kenseth has won here more then once. He is not in the lineup today. 

In practice Peyton Sellers had smoke pouring out of the back of his 99. He went to the pits without a yellow flag. He would return for practice two.

Of the information we have Tate Fogleman led the first practice over Spencer Davis.  Some crafty veterans have made the trip for this race, they include Jeff Fultz, Jeff Scofield and former Oxford 250 winner Jeramie Whorff.  Sellers is not the only Late Model Stock guy making a change today as Deac McCaskill is here running for Coulter Motorsports looking to get a win at SoBo. 

Matt Craig led the second practice over Spencer Davis and Dalton Sergeant.

In Late Model Stock action Josh Oakley led practice one and Matt Bowling led the second practice.

Preston Peltier sets fas time for the feature event for tonight.  The top 10 will redraw for starting spots.
