HAMPTON (June 19) -- Thomas Stinson motored out front on the 28th circuit and fought off Shawn Balluzzo down the stretch to post his first victory of the season in the SuperCuts 50 for the B&C Seafood Modifieds, the featured event of Saturday evening's NASCAR Whelen All-American Series program at Langley Speedway.


Joe Scarbrough was the pole-sitter, qualifying at 83.662 mph. On the opening lap, his front-row partner, Rusty Wood nosed ahead. Wood remained stout on the outside, also leading lap 2. On lap 3, though, Scarbrough made the inside line work and took command.

The first caution flag waved on lap 8 when Scott Lawrence spun in Turn 2. The second yellow flag appeared when officials were unhappy with the ensuing restart.

Back under green, Scarbrough and Wood raced side-by-side for three laps before Scarbrough gained the clear-cut edge. As Scarbrough pulled away, he left the lane open for Stinson, who took over second.

Deeper in the field, Balluzzo was beginning to rumble toward the front. He picked off Cameron Patrick for fourth on lap 13 and swiped third from Wood on lap 20. As he motored away from Wood, six lengths separated Balluzzo from the lead duo.

At the halfway mark, Scarbrough and Stinson were nose-to-tail, while Balluzzo had closed to within two lengths.

Stinson launched his bid for the lead on lap 28, ducking underneath Scarbrough in Turn 2 and pulling out front as they returned to the start/finish line.

Balluzzo was next to challenge Scarbrough, working to the inside of the #9 machine on lap 31. Balluzzo gained the upper hand out of Turn 4 on lap 32 and set off after Stinson, who had stretched his margin to five lengths.

Balluzzo had narrowed the gap to just a single car-length when the third caution flag flew on lap 40 for debris.

On the restart, Stinson pulled ahead and Scarbrough shot to the inside of Balluzzo. They bumped wheels in Turns 1 and 2 and Scarbrough spun, prompting caution #4.

The next restart didn't go any more smoothly, ending with a four-car pileup in Turn 1. Caught up in the mess were Robbie Babb, Lawrence, Cameron Patrick and Scarbrough. Bobby Gery also spun to avoid the melee.

With the field whittled to six cars, Stinson gained a one-length advantage over Balluzzo as the green flag reappeared. Soon, though, Stinson manufactured some breathing room as Wood closed in on Balluzzo.

Heading into the final five laps, Balluzzo slipped away from Wood and zeroed in on the leader. At lap 48, the margin was down to only half a car-length.

That was as close as Balluzzo would get, however, as Stinson eased off over the two remaining laps to win by two lengths. Balluzzo was second, followed by Wood, Scarbrough and Anthony Kincaid.

Mark Claar took the lead on lap 33 and sailed to his third win of the year in the 40-lap Pepsi Grand Stock race. Robbie Parker started on the pole and showed the way for the first 32 laps. Meanwhile, Claar was nabbed during the post-qualifying inspections and had to start ninth. He steadily worked his way toward the point, though, and moved out front on lap 33. Ricky Derrick tagged along with Claar to pick up the second spot. The only caution flag appeared on lap 38, setting up a three-lap sprint to the checkers. Claar held Derrick at bay on the restart and won by a car-length. Tommy Sweeney tailed the lead duo to the line, in third. Carl Livingston and Rodney Boyd were fourth and fifth to the line, respectively. Boyd, however, failed to clear the post-race technical inspection and was disqualified. In the official rundown, Paul Lubno was credited with fifth place.

Former UCAR ace Kevin Alves snagged the top spot on lap 32 and rolled to his first victory in the 40-lap Langley Fan Club Super Street race. Gunning for his fourth straight win, Randy Sample started on the pole and led the opening circuit. On lap 2, though, he suddenly fell off the pace and headed to the pits, handing the lead to Randy Akers. Sample's crew repaired his machine and sent back into the fray, three laps behind. Meanwhile, Alves hounded Akers for the lead. Alves' efforts finally paid off on lap 32 as he worked alongside the leader off the second corner and eased out front. Sean Calway and Renno Marchetti IV came along with Alves, dropping Akers to fourth in the running order. Over the closing laps, Alves pulled away, while Calway and Marchetti tussled for second. At the checkers, Alves won by five lengths over Calway. Marchetti was third, followed by Akers and John Pereira.

Casey Sipe led all 30 laps from the pole and bagged his second win in the Standard Welding Pro Six feature. Matt Mullins, who started third, moved up to second on the opening circuit and offered a stern test to the leader in the early going. After a caution flag at lap 16, Sipe pulled away, while T.J. Guthrie closed in to challenge Mullins for the runner-up spot. A yellow flag on lap 29 bunched the field for a "green-white-checkered" finish. On the final restart, Sipe opened a three-length lead off the second corner and cruised to the win. Mullins was second, followed by Guthrie, Lindsay Bryant and Warren Smigo.

Mike Dayton grabbed the lead on lap 2 and led the field to his second victory of the season in a 20-lapper for the Rhonnda Claiborne, Realtor HRKC Pro Winged Champ Karts. At the finish, Dayton was nose-to-tail with second- and third-place finishers Charlie-Ray Lorah and Bill Dailey. Jake Harberts and Chuck Weeks were fourth and fifth, in that order.

Hunter Koschara started on the pole and dominated all 25 circuits to win the Virginia Mini Cup feature. After a late caution flag, he pulled away over the final five laps to win by better than half a straightaway. Quin Houff overcame a spin on the first lap, rallying for a runner-up finish. Ryan Adams, Jeff Stump and Travis Roach completed the top five.
