Since opening in 1957, South Boston has served as a hub for short track competition on the East Coast.

The short track culture at South Boston remains just as vibrant as ever. In the past decade alone, four track champions at South Boston in Philip Morris, Lee Pulliam, Matt Bowling and Peyton Sellers, have all gone on to claim the NASCAR Advance Auto Parts Weekly Series title during the same year.

Many of South Boston’s weekly competitors, including national frontrunners Sellers and Layne Riggs, will be up against a healthy contingent of Late Model Stock drivers as they look to add another chapter in the growing history of the track’s most cherished race.

Thunder Road Harley-Davidson 200 entry list

An impressive group of nearly 50 cars will attempt Saturday’s Thunder Road Harley-Davidson 200, which is one of the largest entry lists in the history of the race.

Layne Riggs and Peyton Sellers will take their national championship battle into Saturday’s 200-lapper, but both will have to contend with defending race-winner Bobby McCarty. Known for his success in Late Model Stocks around the East Coast, McCarty also enters the Thunder Road Harley-Davidson 200 as the most recent champion of the Virginia Late Model Triple Crown.

Joining the Virginia locals this weekend will be Super Late Model standout Derek Thorn, whose accomplishments also include two championships in the ARCA Menards Series West. Thorn will be piloting a Late Model Stock prepared by Steve Stallings and Marcus Richmond, the latter of whom has served as a crew chief for drivers like Noah Gragson, Ty Dillon, Dennis Setzer and Timothy Peters.

Other notable names searching for a Thunder Road Harley-Davidson 200 victory include defending ValleyStar Credit Union 300 winner Landon Pembelton, part-time NASCAR Camping World Truck Series competitor Corey Heim and Carson Kvapil, who is the son of Truck Series champion Travis Kvapil and will be driving a car fielded by JR Motorsports.

Several talented drivers have won the Thunder Road Harley-Davidson 200, including past NASCAR Advance Auto Parts Weekly Series champions Lee Pulliam, Philip Morris and Peyton Sellers (NASCAR)

Thunder Road Harley-Davidson 200 history, winners

Despite South Boston Speedway being a cornerstone of Virginia’s short track community, the Thunder Road Harley-Davidson 200 has primarily been dominated by drivers from out of state during its brief existence.

The most successful of these drivers was Semora, North Carolina, native Lee Pulliam. The four-time NASCAR Advance Auto Parts Weekly Series Division I National champion was unstoppable at South Boston during the early 2010s, winning six consecutive Thunder Road Harley-Davidson 200s from 2011-’16.

Virginia natives have attempted to re-take control following Pulliam’s win streak. Philip Morris and Peyton Sellers kept the Thunder Road Harley-Davidson 200 trophy inside Virginia from 2017-2019 before Summerfield, North Carolina, native Bobby McCarty broke that streak in last year’s race.

Sellers and McCarty are the only two past winners who are entered in this weekend’s Thunder Road Harley-Davidson 200, which presents an ideal opportunity for a new name to stamp their own legacy at the end of 200 grueling laps.
