Hampton, Va. --

Marco's Pizza Night Race Report Saturday, April 17, 2010

Seeking a measure of redemption after a lackluster showing on opening night, defending champion C.E. Falk started on the pole and led all the way to win the Marco’s Pizza 100 for the Crossroads Fuel Service Late Model Stock Cars, the featured event of Saturday evening’s NASCAR Whelen All-American Series program at Langley Speedway.

Falk claimed the pole in afternoon time trials, clocking in at 88.975 mph. Greg Edwards was second-fastest at 88.953 mph, just four-thousandths of a second off Falk’s pace. Brandon Gdovic bagged the third starting spot, while Danny Edwards Jr. and Wesley Falk rounded out the top five on the 20-car grid.
As the race got under way, Falk gained the early lead, hauling the field off into Turn 1. Greg Edwards slipped in line on Falk’s bumper and Danny Edwards Jr. moved into third, leaving Gdovic to battle with Woody Howard for fourth. Within the first five laps, Falk and Greg Edwards had pulled away from third-place Danny Edwards Jr. by almost half a straightaway.

Behind the top four, Gdovic struggled to hang onto the fifth spot as Paul DeBolt, Wesley Falk and Mark Wertz nipped at his heels. He finally gave way on lap 15 and dropped to eighth in the running order.

Back at the front, Falk was beginning to ease away from Greg Edwards. By lap 32, his advantage had grown to five car-lengths over Greg Edwards, who suddenly had a mirror-full of his older brother to deal with. A straightaway separated the third-place machine, Edwards Jr., from Howard and DeBolt, who were tussling for fourth.
On lap 40, DeBolt picked off Howard for the fourth spot. Seven laps later, Wertz, the winner of the season opener, also slipped past Howard to crack the top five for the first time.
Just past the halfway mark, the leaders began to encounter lapped traffic. Working smartly around the slower machines, Falk was able to widen his margin over the Edwards brothers to nearly half a straightaway. By lap 72, as the race continued caution-free, the gap had grown even larger. Meanwhile, fourth-place DeBolt had shaken free of traffic and was closing on Danny Edwards Jr.
The first yellow flag was unfurled on lap 88 when Robbie Babb spun at the end of the backstretch. The interruption erased Falk’s lead and put Greg Edwards on his outside flank for the double-file restart.
As the race resumed, Falk quickly cleared Greg Edwards, who faced a renewed challenge from Danny Edwards Jr. Trouble broke out at the end of the backstretch, though, as DeBolt spun into the outside wall and the yellow flag reappeared.
Returning to green, Howard scooted around Wertz for fourth, then snagged third from Danny Edwards Jr. on lap 89. Edwards tried to reverse the move on lap 90, but, before that scuffle could play out, the third caution flag waved as Dude Gibbs spun in Turn 3.
Only one more green-flag lap was completed before the fourth, and final, yellow flag flew for a four-car tangle in Turn 2.
With the race inside its final 10 laps, drivers lined up in single-file formation for the sprint to the checkers. Falk led the way, followed by Greg Edwards, Howard, Danny Edwards Jr. and Wesley Falk.
Under green for the last time, Falk forged a slim margin over Greg Edwards, then extended the advantage to two lengths off Turn 2. After three more laps, Falk had added another car-length to his lead and was well on his way to victory, as Edwards dealt with a challenge from Howard.
At the finish, Falk’s margin of victory stood at 1.326 seconds — about half a straightaway — over Gre Edwards. Howard was third, followed by Danny Edwards Jr. Wertz slipped past Wesley Falk on lap 95 and came home in the fifth spot.
Wesley Falk headed the second five, in sixth, while Gdovic, Gibbs, Dean Shiflett and Jeff Shiflett rounded out the top 10. The top 10 finishers were all on the lead lap at the conclusion of the event.
In Victory Lane after the race, Falk recounted the extended green-flag run, followed by the series of late restarts: “I was just trying to ride and save the tires the best I could. It was such a long green-flag run and we got to lap 87 and I was like, ‘I guess we’re gonna be all right. We’ll just coast on and win this thing.’ But, the change of the race was just incredible — all those restarts and stuff like that. And then, of course, it got way cold, so everybody’s spinning their tires, trying to get to the flag first. And, the old 40 car got ‘er done tonight. Just really proud of my crew. We had a bad week last week, but we rebounded and showed the champions that we are.”

In the evening’s other feature events:

In a 75-lapper for the Rolling Thunder Modified tour, A.J. Winstead snagged the lead from Jimmy Humblet on a late restart and rolled to the win.
Joe Scarbrough was the polesitter for the event, qualifying at 85.947 mph. Ronnie Davis, Chris Hoylman, Humblet and Michael Leech were second through fifth, respectively, on the 16-car starting grid. Winstead launched from the outside of Row 5.
On the start, Scarbrough jumped out front as the field roared through Turns 1 and 2 for the first time. Davis settled into second, while Humblet bypassed Hoylman for third. Just four laps in, Scarbrough had already constructed a three-length advantage over Davis, who had Humblet parked on his rear bumper.
The first caution flag flew on lap 8 and two more appeared on ensuing restarts. As the field bunched for another try at getting the race back under way, Scarbrough, Davis and Humblet held the top three spots, followed by Leech and Scott Lawrence. Winstead was up to sixth.
As the race resumed, Scarbrough quickly fashioned a three-length lead over Davis. Deeper in the field, Winstead made his way around Lawrence and into the top five.
Humblet snatched the runner-up position away from Davis on lap 18. The exchange allowed Scarbrough to pad his lead to four lengths, but Humblet soon began to narrow the gap. On lap 27, Winstead picked off Leech to take over fourth. Within a handful of laps, he was hounding Davis for third.
The leaders waded into traffic for the first time on lap 28 and Humblet closed to within a car-length of Scarbrough. Behind them, Winstead grabbed third from Davis.
Coming around to complete lap 37, Humblet made his bid for the lead, ducking under Scarbrough off the fourth corner. He gained the clear-cut edge in Turns 1 and 2 on lap 38 and began to drive away from the struggling Scarbrough. By lap 41, Humblet’s margin had swelled to half a straightaway as Scarbrough was clearly off the pace.
On lap 45, Scarbrough surrendered second place to Winstead, while Leech slipped past for third on lap 47. A lap later, Scarbrough spun on the backstretch to bring out the fourth caution flag. He headed to the pits for a right-rear tire change as officials began scoring the caution laps to speed the event along.
Back under green, two lapped machines provided a buffer between Humblet and Winstead and the leader took advantage, opening a four-length edge. The green-flag stint was short-lived, however, as a three-car tangle on the backstretch brought out caution #5 on lap 59. This time, nothing separated Humblet and Winstead on the restart.
One last caution flag appeared on lap 68 for Chris Brown’s spin in Turns 1 and 2.
On the final restart, Winstead powered to the outside of Humblet off Turn 2 and nosed ahead at the line. He cleared Humblet’s #11 machine on the backstretch on the following circuit and quickly gained a narrow margin. Meanwhile, Scarbrough was on the comeback trail, moving into third on lap 72.
At the finish, Winstead was the winner by 0.730-second — about four lengths. Humblet bobbled in Turn 2 on the white-flag lap and gave up the second spot to Scarbrough. Humblet was third to the line, while Leech and Mike Hanbury completed the top five.
The Rolling Thunder Modified tour is slated for a return visit to Langley in October, while the track’s own division, the B&C Seafood Modifieds, kicks off its 2010 campaign next week.

Randy Sample came from the 16th starting spot to win a 40-lapper for the Langley Speedway Fan Club Super Streets, taking the lead on lap 38.
Randy Akers was the fast qualifier, at 73.966 mph. He was bumped back to the outside of Row 4, though, by an inversion of the top eight. Garrett Willcox moved up to the pole, sharing the front row with Ritchie German. Renno Marchetti IV and Jamie Sample made up Row 2, followed by Ryan Nester.
On the initial start, Willcox motored into the lead. Before the lap was completed, however, the Super Streets’ version of “The Big One” broke out on the backstretch. Among the casualties were Akers and Kevin Alves, the two fastest qualifiers.
Under green for a second try at getting the race under way, Willcox outdueled Jamie Sample to lead lap 1, clearing him on lap 2 and bringing Nester along to second. Sample dropped to third, followed by Rod Busitzky and Sean Calway. Randy Sample was up to sixth.
On lap 5, Busitzky slipped past Jamie Sample for third place. Calway and Randy Sample tagged along, moving into fourth and fifth. On the next lap, Calway and Sample tag-teamed Busitzky, dropping him to fifth.
The race’s only other caution flag waved on lap 8 when Willcox and Nester tangled in Turn 2 and Willcox spun. The incident earned both drivers a trip to the back of the pack and handed the lead over to Calway, who started shotgun in the 17-car lineup.
Returning to green, Randy Sample moved up alongside Calway to challenge for the lead. Calway held him off, though, and grabbed the clear-cut edge on lap 9. Behind them, Busitzky held down the third spot, followed by German and Jamie Sample.
On lap 12, German scooted past Busitzky to pick up third place. He was followed by Jamie Sample and John Pereira.
At the midway point, Calway was up by nearly three lengths over Randy Sample. In turn, the lead duo enjoyed a full-straightaway margin over third-place German.
Within a few circuits, Randy Sample had closed in on Calway and was hunting for an opening. He nearly found it on lap 33 when Calway got caught behind Willcox, leaving the outside lane wide open. Sample went topside, only to have Willcox switch lanes, blocking his charge as Calway maintained the lead.
Coming around to complete lap 37, Sample took another run at Calway, forcing his way to the inside of the leader off the fourth corner. The two leaned heavily on each other all the way down the frontstretch with Sample emerging in the lead at the entrance to Turn 1 on lap 38.
As Sample pulled away, Calway dropped off the pace and began to tumble down the running order. By the end, he had slipped to 10th, the final driver on the lead lap.
At the checkers, Randy Sample was the runaway winner over German. His final margin of victory was a whopping 4.060 seconds. Jamie Sample was third, followed by Pereira and Busitzky.

Defending division champ Tommy Nixon took the lead on lap 2 and motored to the win in the 25-lap Larry King Legal Services Super Truck race.
Charlie Barclay set the fast time in qualifying for the event, touring the .395-mile oval at 73.713 mph. An inversion of the top six dropped him to the outside of Row 3, though, as Buck Munger assumed the pole.
As the race got going, Chris Bechtel, who started alongside Munger, pulled out front, bringing Nixon and Barclay along with him. On lap 2, Nixon bypassed Bechtel in Turns 1 and 2 to take over the top spot. Barclay tagged along with Nixon and moved into second, while Davis grabbed third. Rick Potter and Brad Adams claimed fourth and fifth, respectively.
By lap 7, Nixon, Barclay and Davis were linked in nose-to-tail formation. Behind them, Adams slipped past Potter for fourth on lap 8. On the following circuit, Troy Turnage scampered by Potter to crack the top five.
At the halfway point, Nixon’s lead had grown to three lengths as he began to ease away from the brewing battle between Barclay and Davis.
The only caution flag flew on lap 18 when Turnage and Cory Millard tangled in Turn 3. Lining up for the restart, Nixon was out front, followed by Barclay, Davis, Adams and Potter.
Back under green, the front four broke away with Nixon gaining a slim margin as they hit the backstretch. Barclay quickly closed the gap, though, while Davis lingered a truck-length back.
Working lap 20, the leaders suddenly strung out as Nixon pulled away by four lengths over Barclay. On the next lap, Davis ducked underneath Barclay off Turn 4 and grabbed second as they headed into Turn 1 to begin lap 22.
While Davis and Barclay tussled, Nixon sped away, winning by 0.743-second — about four lengths — over Davis, who saw his seven-race winning streak come to a halt. Barclay was third, followed by Adams and Potter.

At the head of a potent, three-kart draft, Bill Dailey took the lead on lap 14 and held on to win a 20-lapper for the Rhonnda Claiborne, Realtor HRKC Pro Winged Champ Karts.
Dwain Smith was the polesitter, at 62.657 mph, and set the pace for the first 13 circuits with Casey Wyatt in tow. Meanwhile, Mike Dayton, who started on the outside of Row 1, drifted back in the field and found Dailey. Together, Dailey and Dayton linked up with Chris O’Brien and began making their way to the front.
By lap 12, Dailey, Dayton and O’Brien had caught up to the lead duo. On the next lap, they made their move, motoring to the outside of Smith and Wyatt and forging ahead on lap 14. Smith and Wyatt took a run at the new top three on lap 15, but came up empty as the leaders began to separate themselves from the pack.
Dailey, Dayton and O’Brien maintained their disciplined draft all the way to the finish and crossed the stripe in nose-to-tail formation. Dailey’s official margin of victory was 0.079-second. Ryan Hudgins came out on top of a wild, last-lap scramble to nab fourth, while Smith ended up fifth.

Danny Harrell grabbed the point on lap 28 and sailed to the win in the season-opening 50-lapper for the Enduro division.
Dale Parro started on the pole, at 70.848 mph, but gave way to his front-row mate, Mike Ganoe, on the opening circuit. In only four laps, Ganoe had driven away by more than half a straightaway.
Ganoe’s big lead vanished on lap 18, though, as the race was red-flagged for the only time.
Back under green, Tony Spivey bolted from fourth to second, then overhauled Ganoe for the lead in Turns 3 and 4 on lap 19. Deeper in the field, Harrell was on the move, swiping third from Parro. Five laps later, Harrell took second from Ganoe and set off after Spivey.
On lap 28, Harrell tracked down the leader and drove to the inside of Spivey as they raced down the backstretch. He completed the pass through Turns 3 and 4.
On lap 30, slower traffic became a factor and Spivey closed in, looking to take advantage. Harrell held him off, however, and motored away, extending his lead to more than half a straightaway.
At the finish, Harrell was the winner by five lengths over runner-up Spivey. Ganoe, the ‘09 division champ, was third, followed by Parro and James Loving.
