Wednesday, June 30, 2010

Race fans can get an early jump on their Fourth of July holiday weekend this Friday, July 2, as Langley Speedway continues its 2010 NASCAR Whelen All-American Series schedule with Old Point National Bank Night.
Friday's feature lineup includes: B&C Seafood Modifieds (50 laps); Pepsi Grand Stocks (40 laps); Casey Cycle City INEX Legends (25 laps); Enduros (50 laps); and, INEX Bandoleros (20 laps).
And, of course, the evening is highlighted by the Speedway's annual pyrotechnic spectacular, presented by world-famous Zambelli Fireworks Internationale.
Pit gates open at 1 p.m. on Friday, while front gates open and practice gets under way at 3. A drivers meeting is slated for 4:15, followed by time trials at 4:30. Pre-race ceremonies begin at 6:45 and the INEX Bandoleros lead off the racing program shortly after 7.
Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children, 6-12. "Little Race Fans" (under 6) are admitted free when accompanied by an adult. Military personnel (active-duty or retired, with ID) and senior citizens (60+, with ID) receive a $2 discount off the adult ticket price. "Family Packs," which include two adult and two children's tickets, are $25 - a savings of $5.
Advance tickets may be purchased online by clicking on the appropriate link at www.langley-speedway.com or at the Speedway office during regular business hours.
In case of inclement weather, Friday's program - fireworks included - will shift to Saturday, July 3.
. . .
Through four Modified races this season, Shawn Balluzzo, Thomas Stinson and Rusty Wood have managed to separate themselves from the pack in the chase for the 2010 division title.
Defending champ Balluzzo won the year's first two events to gain the early points lead. Wood and Stinson have split the last two race wins, though, to keep the pressure on the front-runner.
Heading into Friday's 50-lapper, Balluzzo holds a narrow six-point advantage over Stinson and Wood, who are deadlocked for second. Scott Lawrence and Matt Slye complete the top five.
. . .
After a runner-up finish in the '10 opener, Mark Claar has been unstoppable in Grand Stock competition, reeling off three straight wins.
Claar turned in a particularly impressive performance in the division's last race, on June 19. He came from the back of the pack to take the lead on lap 33 on the way to the victory.
He leads '09 champion Ricky Derrick by 14 points in the current Grand Stock standings and will look to extend that margin in Friday's 40-lap feature.
. . .
First- and second-place outings in last weekend's Late Model Twin 75s have propelled C.E. Falk into seventh in this week's NASCAR Whelen All-American Series National Top 500. Keith Rocco, who competes in the Modified class at a trio of Connecticut tracks, continues to hold the top spot.
Other Langley regulars near the top of the national rundown include: Woody Howard (11th), Greg Edwards (18th), Wes Falk (23rd), Danny Edwards Jr. (29th), Mark Wertz (54th), Brandon Gdovic (85th) and Dude Gibbs (99th).
In the Virginia state rankings, Justin Johnson of South Boston Speedway shows the way, while C.E. Falk and Howard are second and third, in that order. Greg Edwards is fifth. Wes Falk and Danny Edwards Jr. are seventh and eighth, respectively. Wertz checks in at 11th, while Gdovic and Gibbs are 17th and 19th.
. . .
Vaughan Crittenden led 19 of 20 laps and notched his first win as the Rhonnda Claiborne, Realtor HRKC Pro Winged Champ Karts held their seventh race of the season during last Sunday's Hampton Roads Kart Club meet at the Speedway.
Crittenden's margin of victory was 79-thousandths of a second over David Phelps. Jake Harberts, Mike Dayton and Bill Dailey were third, fourth and fifth. Just over half a second separated the top five at the checkers.
. . .
Cousins to the familiar Legends cars, the INEX Bandoleros are produced by 600 Racing Inc. and are designed as a bridge between karts and cars. The small, full-bodied racers are powered by 30-horsepower, 570cc Briggs & Stratton Vangard sealed engines.
. . .
Over $32,000 in posted awards, including a $10,000 winner's payout, will be up for grabs on Saturday, July 10, as the Crossroads Fuel Service Late Model Stock Cars contest their biggest event of the season - the Third Annual Hampton Heat 200. The race is part of the City of Hampton's 400th anniversary celebration.
The Pepsi Grand Stocks, Larry King Legal Services Super Trucks, Casey Cycle City INEX Legends and EZ Auto of Newport News UCARs are also slated for action on July 10.
. . .
A longtime member of the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series, Langley Speedway is a .395-mile, slightly-banked oval. The track is located at 11 Dale Lemonds Dr., off North Armistead Ave., in Hampton, Va.
