South Boston Speedway or "SoBo" is a short track located just outside South Boston, Virginia, U.S.A.. SoBo is located approximately 60 miles (97 km) 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 longtime general manager Cathy Rice operating the track. NASCAR's Sprint Cup Series has not raced at the track since 1971; however, NASCAR's Busch Series (now Xfinity Series) last raced here in 2000. After the NASCAR Busch Series left the schedule, the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series competed at SoBo for a few years between 2001 and 2003. The NASCAR K&N Pro Series East and Whelen Modified Tour now hold events here, and SoBo continues to play a part in the NASCAR family hosting Whelen All-American S
