Jean-Philippe Bergeron, No. 46 Prolon Ford Fusion

  • JP Bergeron returns to the seat of the No. 46 Fusion for David Gilliland Racing at Kansas Speedway in Kansas City for his second career ARCA Menards Series start.
  • In his ARCA debut at Salem (Ind.) Speedway, Bergeron qualified seventh and drove his way into the top-five during the first stage of the race. Adjustments made during the first pit stop made the car too loose for the Canadian driver's liking and he fell one lap down on lap 136. He ultimately brought home an eighth-place finish to earn his first career ARCA top-10.
  • At Kansas Speedway in May of this season, crew chief Derek Smith guided Thad Moffitt and the No. 46 team to a sixth-place effort.
  • Bergeron will round out his three-race stint with DGR at Phoenix (Ariz.) Raceway on November 6 with the ARCA Menards Series West.



Speedy Cash will return with Anthony Alfredo this weekend at the Kansas Speedway. After a good run was cut prematurely short at Texas, the No. 38 team is looking to rebound this Sunday afternoon.
"It was great seeing all the Speedy Cash folks in Texas last weekend. We had a big Texas-sized steak dinner on Saturday night and we were excited for Sunday. It was just a shame that our race was cut short," Alfredo said.
The Speedy Cash Ford Mustang driver was poised for a good finish, but a late-race wreck caused a fire. Fire is one of the most dangerous hazards while racing.
“I'm thankful to have been able to get out unharmed. It's credit to all the safety and innovation," continued Alfredo. "I have had a car on fire before. I knew to stay calm, but also move quickly. I had the composure to get everything off and get out of the car. It may have seemed to take a little bit, but I was in control of the situation."
Now Alfredo looks forward to Kansas.
"We have been getting better at intermediate tracks, and I know we can put up a good finish at Kansas. We had a top-25 finish there back in May, and was on the verge of breaking into the top-15. We had a great car then and hopefully it will be speedy on Sunday.'
The race will be televised live on NBCSN at 3:00 p.m. ET.

The fastest and most powerful cars to ever race at South Boston Speedway and a new speedway partner will be featured in a new two-night event in April 2022 as part of the track’s 65th anniversary season.

For the first time in South Boston Speedway’s history, sleek 1,600-pound, near-900-horsepower open-wheel 410-winged sprint cars will hit the .4-mile oval during the Sentara Healthcare American Sprint Car Weekend on April 29-30, 2022.

Full shows for the 410-winged sprint cars will be featured both nights including heat races, a B-Main and feature races.

The Sentara Healthcare American Sprint Car Weekend was unveiled to race fans attending last Saturday night’s season-ending CARS Tour event at South Boston Speedway with a demonstration of the powerful 410-winged sprint cars by visiting drivers from the Must See Racing Xtreme Sprint Car Series.

“We are very excited to host 410-winged sprint cars for the first time ever here at South Boston Speedway,” said Incoming South Boston Speedway General Manager Chase Brashears. “We couldn’t think of a better time to showcase this event than the speedway’s 65th anniversary season. Race fans from throughout the region will not want to miss seeing these insanely fast, near-900-horsepower machines compete here at South Boston Speedway.” 

Along with the first-ever event for 410-winged sprint cars, South Boston Speedway welcomes a new partner, Sentara Healthcare.

“We are really excited to bring this to Halifax County,” said Samantha Thompson, Practice Manager of Sentara Southern Virginia Orthopedics and Sentara Halifax General Surgery. “South Boston Speedway is so important to us, and we want to promote it and do as much as we can for the community.”

Thompson says she is excited about Sentara Healthcare’s first-time partnership with South Boston Speedway and first involvement in auto racing.

“I can’t explain how excited we are to do it,” Thompson remarked with a big smile. “This is a first-time event here and we’re looking forward to it.”

South Boston Speedway Director of Marketing Carly Brashears said having Sentara Healthcare as a new partner is big for the speedway.

“We are excited to welcome Sentara Healthcare to the South Boston Speedway family,” said Carly Brashears. “Sentara’s local medical center, Halifax Regional Hospital in South Boston, Virginia, is a great asset to our community and we are excited about our new partnership with them.”

The fastest unofficial lap ever turned at South Boston Speedway, 13.5 seconds, was recorded during Saturday’s demonstration run of the 410-winged sprint cars by Nolan Allison of Greensboro, North Carolina and Anthony Linkenhoker of Louisa, Virginia, with Allison hitting the mark. Both drivers predict lap times will be faster when the competitors visit South Boston Speedway next April and get their cars dialed in for the track.

“The speeds at this track will be extremely fast,” Allison remarked. “I think with the corner speed, the banking and how wide the track is, you’re just not going to touch the brakes. Last weekend we were probably running around 150 mph or so at times at Montgomery, Alabama. I think we will be pushing that, if not more, here at South Boston Speedway because the corners are so fast. I’m very excited about competing here.”

Like Allison, Linkenhoker is excited about racing at South Boston Speedway.
“I can’t wait,” Linkenhoker remarked. “This is an absolutely beautiful facility, and the track is great. The track is extremely smooth and that builds confidence in the car.

“Must See Racing has the top names in the sport,” Linkenhoker pointed out. “You’re racing with the best of the best. It’s going to be a great show.”

All four of South Boston Speedway’s regular racing divisions, the NASCAR Advance Auto Parts Weekly Series Late Model Stock Car Division, the Limited Sportsman Division, the Budweiser Pure Stock Division, and the Budweiser Hornets Division will be in action during the April 29-30 weekend. In addition, fans will see the competitors of the Southern Ground Pounders Vintage Racing Club in action.

The first race of the night on Friday night, April 29 will get the green flag at 8 p.m. The opening night’s racing action will feature a full show for the 410-winged sprint cars along with races for South Boston Speedway’s Limited Sportsman, Budweiser Pure Stock and Budweiser Hornets Division competitors.

Action will start at 7 p.m. on Saturday night, April 30 with fans seeing another full show for the 410-winged sprint cars. South Boston Speedway’s NASCAR Advance Auto Parts Weekly Series Late Model Stock Car Division drivers and teams will also be featured that night. The competitors of the Southern Ground Pounders Vintage Racing Club will also be on hand, making the first of their two scheduled appearances for the 2022 season.
Ticket information and additional details for the event will be announced at a later date.

“The significance of this next step is very meaningful for me,” said Nick Sanchez. “It’ll obviously be my first time participating in one of the top 3 series of NASCAR, which is something I’ve always dreamed of ever since I started racing. Since the day I first met BJ, we’ve always been on the same page. We both share the same collective goals for next year and I feel he and his team have made significant strides in performance each year they’ve been in the (Xfinity) Series. My main goal next year is to learn and get the most out of the car's performance, hopefully yielding some good finishes for myself and the team."

Additional details regarding race schedule and partners for Sanchez will be announced in the near future.
