Langley Speedway, the only NASCAR-sanctioned weekly track in southeastern Virginia, is proud to announce that it will honor long-time motorsports journalist Al Pearce early in Saturday night's NASCAR Whelen All-American racing program presented by Sysco.

    Pearce, a native of Rocky Mount, N.C. and long-time resident of Newport News, began his motorsports career at Langley in the summer of 1969. He had been hired directly from the Army to cover NASCAR for the The Times-Herald (now, Daily Press) and his stories, features and columns from Langley appeared in the Peninsula newspaper for the next 30-plus years. He retired in 2004, but continues to cover major NASCAR races almost weekend for AutoWeek magazine.

    "Considering everything that Al has meant to short-track racing around here, we felt it was fitting that we dedicated our media center in his name," said track GM Chuck Hall. "It's impossible to estimate how many of our current fans learned about Langley Speedway and first came for the first time because of Al's stories in the Times-Herald and Daily Press. Over his 35 years at the newspapers, it's probably safe to say he's spent maybe 500 days and nights out here. That's quite a record, one we feel is deserving of this honor."

    Former Langley Speedway promoter Joe Carver and former track and NASCAR Mid-Atlantic Regional champion Elton Sawyer are among the special guests returning for the ceremony. Carver is generally credited with reviving the ailing track during his 10 eventful years (early-70s to early-80s). He left Langley to work with long-time friends Darrell Waltrip and Travis Carter, and currently works with a company near Charlotte that schedules and delivers show car

    Sawyer is among a host of competitors (among them, Geoffrey Bodine, Denny Hamlin and Ashton Lewis Jr.) who used Langley as a springboard to their NASCAR careers. After his Late Model career the Chesapeake native won two poles and two Nationwide Series races, was a top-10 points finisher six times, including three seasons in the top-5. After a brief career in Sprint Cup, he worked for Bill Davis and Ray Evernham, and currently is on the technical management staff at Team Red Bull.  

     Saturday night's six-race SYSCO Rock Star 265 program includes a Late Model 100, Modified 50, Grand Stock 40, and 25-lap races for the Super Truck, Legend and UCAR classes.

Rock Star 265 Race for Life: Benefiting Madison ArnotModified Racing Champ Setting Records to Help Little Girl Beat Cancer!

Hampton, VA-  Saturday the racing community joins together for  a 10 year old little girl named Madison Arnot and her family. At CHKD, Madison is known as their little “Rock Star”- this is her story.

Madison is the youngest patient to receive treatment at CHKD for a genetic disorder called Familial Adenomatous Polyposis (FAP). This disease allows hundreds to thousands of colorectal polyps to develop at a very early age. This disease, untreated can lead to cancer. Doctors screened Madison and her siblings at a young age because their father had overcome his challenge with this disease at the age of 19. Madison was the only child that tested positive and so her treatment began.

In March of 2009, Madison had her colon removed. Since that time, things have not gone well and she has now had six to seven surgeries with the anticipation of five or six more. She is currently in home health care and her IV and feeding supply costs are unimaginable. Madison’s parents have health insurance, but her health demands prevent her mother from working and the co pays continue to mount.

Fast forward to April 2010, Madison and her family are being embraced by another part of Hampton Roads that is very well known to those who live here- the racing community. Langley Speedway, a NASCAR sanctioned shortrack celebrating its 60th season has been visited by many of NASCAR’s biggest names; such as Ned Jarrett, Richard Petty, Bobby Allison and Denny Hamlin- just to name a few.

However, it is one of Langley Speedway’s most recognized names that heard about Madison’s plight who has come forward to raise money to help Madison’s healthcare to continue with fewer burdens to her family than they currently carry. Madison’s local racing hero is Shawn Balluzzo. Shawn, age 53 has 29 wins in three different classes at 4 different racetracks on the east coast. He has won three Modified Championships and is the reigning track champion at Langley. 2010 marks his 26th year racing and what will certainly be his most memorable regardless of the outcome of competition for the year.

On June 12, 2010 Shawn will be competing in the “Rock Star 265 Race for Life: Benefiting Madison Arnot.” Shawn will be the first driver in Langley Speedway’s history to compete in every race on the schedule for that evening. He will be competing in the Late Model Stock Car, Modified, Grand Stock Super Truck, U-Car and Legend races that night. This is a racing feat that has not been attempted by anyone, anywhere. Therefore Shawn will be setting new records while raising money for Madison.

Portions of the purse money won by Shawn will be donated to Madison and her family. In addition, over the next six weeks leading up to the “Rock Star 265”, pledge cards will be available at the Fan Club booth at the speedway for fans to make flat donations or to donate money for each lap Shawn is able to complete.

Shawn’s cars are being donated by drivers that regularly race in their respective divisions at a competitive level. Their crews will be assisting him in each race, therefore giving him a realistic chance at a win in every race.

Outside of his weekly racing hobbies, Shawn designs and builds racing simulators for Sprint Cup teams and other businesses. As part of the evenings fundraising events, Shawn will have simulators on hand for fans to race in. All of the proceeds from the simulators will go towards this great cause. All fundraising events from the evening will benefit the Arnot family. If you, your family or business would like to get involved in what promises to be an event to remember, please contact Shawn Balluzzo at sballuzzo@msn.com.

Madison Arnot, has never once complained and her parents say she doesn’t ask “why” either. By all accounts, she is a consummate fighter that intends to win her life’s biggest battle. Join the Arnot family and Shawn on June 12, 2010 at Langley Speedway and support her in her attempts to defeat this disease.
