Helio Castroneves delivered a dramatic win in the first race of the 2022 Camping World SRX Series, and all eyes are on what the Superstar Racing Experience will do for an encore this weekend at South Boston Speedway in Virginia. Castroneves wasn’t even scheduled to be in the season-opening race, but has been petitioning for a racing team to pick him up for a NASCAR race this season, and entered himself into the field at Pensacola to help build his case.
The Camping World SRX Series continues on Saturday South Boston Speedway in Virginia at 8 p.m. ET, and looks to provide even more fireworks. You can see who steps up by watching live on CBS or streaming the race on Paramount+ with their must-have Premium plan.

Top SRX at South Boston picks
Before you tune in to Saturday’s race, you need to see the picks from SportsLine’s advanced computer model. SportsLine’s proprietary racing model simulates every race 10,000 times, taking into account a slew of factors including track history and recent results.
Last season, the model was all over Stewart finishing on top of the leaderboard at the SRX Series at Eldora. The model also called Stewart winning at Knoxville, and now it has dialed in on Saturday’s SRX race at South Boston Speedway. In 2021, the model nailed five of Kyle Larson’s wins during a historic NASCAR Cup Series season, and has also gone 15-10 on its head-to-head matchup predictions to start 2022. Earlier this season it was high on Ross Chastain to win in Austin, giving him a far better shot to win than his 40-1 odds implied. The model was also high on Joey Logano before he won as a 15-1 underdog at Darlington. Anyone who followed its lead on those plays saw huge returns.
For Saturday’s race, the model predicts that Tony Stewart struggles on Saturday and finishes outside of the Top 5. Stewart won the second and third races of the Superstar Racing Experience last season, but opened this season with a 10th-place finish in the season-opening main event in Pensacola. Stewart had a promising start last Saturday, after he took third in the first heat race, but he fell off after with an eighth-place finish in Heat 2 prior to the main event.
Last season, Stewart’s worst finish was seventh at Lucas Oil Raceway, which came on a slightly bigger track than South Boston Speedway. However, last weekend’s race was on a more similar half-mile long oval, and that didn’t produce the kind of results he was looking for, either. With a more competitive field of full-time drivers than last season, this year’s SRX campaign is already shaping up to be far more challenging than last season, and this week’s field in particular is loaded with talented drivers.
After the first week, Stewart is fifth in the SRX season point standings, with 21 points. He comes to South Boston 15 points behind co-leaders Tony Kanaan and Ryan Newman.
