South Boston Speedway or "SoBo" is a short track located just outside South Boston, Virginia, U.S.A.. SoBo is located approximately sixty miles east of another area familiar to most NASCAR fans, Martinsville. It is owned by Mattco, Inc, the Mattioli family trust that owns Pocono Raceway, with second-generation member Joe Mattioli III operating the track. NASCAR's Sprint Cup Series has not raced at the track since 1971; however, NASCAR's BUSCH Series (now Nationwide Series) raced here into the new millennium.
After the NASCAR Busch Series left the schedule, the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series competed at SoBo for a couple years. The NASCAR Camping World East Series now hold events here and SoBo continues to play a part in the NASCAR family, hosting Whelen All-American Series late model and USAR Hooter's Pro Cup events. Some of the better known graduates of South Boston's Saturday night weekly events include Jeff Burton, Ward Burton, Elliott Sadler, Stacy Compton, and the Bodine brothers (Todd, Geoff and Brett). Danville, Virginia driver Wendell Scott, the first African-American driver to compete at NASCAR's highest level, also raced in Modified Division events here.
