Hampton Va. --

Hampton Heat 200 set for Saturday night
Update: Wednesday, July 7, 2010

The biggest race on the Crossroads Fuel Service Late Model Stock Car calendar gets the green flag this Saturday, July 10, as Langley Speedway plays host to the Third Annual Hampton Heat 200, one of the showcase events of the City of Hampton's 400th anniversary celebration.
In addition to the Late Model tilt, Saturday's lineup includes: Pepsi Grand Stocks (40 laps); Larry King Legal Services Super Trucks (25 laps); Casey Cycle City INEX Legends (25 laps); and, EZ Auto of Newport News UCARs (25 laps).
Pit gates open at 9 a.m. on Saturday morning with Late Model inspections beginning at 9:30. Late Model practice runs from 12 noon 'til 2:15 p.m., followed by support division practice. Time trials get under way at 4:15. Fans can meet and greet their favorite drivers during an autograph session from 6:15 'til 6:45. Pre-race festivities begin at 6:45 and racing starts 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.
. . .
Over $32,000 in posted awards will be on the line in the Hampton Heat 200, including a $10,000 payout to the winner.
Along with the hefty race purse, over $1,000 in bonus prizes will be up for grabs:
. $300 Advance Auto Parts Pole Award.
. $200 Herr's Potato Chips Halfway Leader Award.
. $100 Sunoco Gas Cards to the pole winner, race winner and fifth-, 10th- and 15th-place finishers.
. Two Hoosier tires to the 10th- and 20th-place finishers.
. . .
Saturday's Hampton Heat 200 will be run in two 100-lap segments with a 15-minute halftime break. Pit crews will be busy during the intermission, however, as they scramble to make the key adjustments that will propel their drivers to Victory Lane.
In the first two editions of the event, the leader at the halfway mark wasn't holding the checkers at the end of the night.
. . .
In the inaugural event, in 2008, Nick Smith started fourth, swiped the lead from pole-sitter Danny Edwards Jr. on lap 142 and sprinted away to a dominating, 5.181-second victory.
In last year's race, C.E. Falk grabbed the lead from pole-sitter Smith on lap 23, but couldn't hold off Woody Howard down the stretch as the Chesapeake, Va., driver, who started fifth, moved out front on lap 183 and won by a second.
The common thread in the victories for Smith and Howard was car owners James and Mary Lou Long, who fielded both winning entries. The Longs will try to pull off the car owner "three-peat" on Saturday with Greg Edwards at the wheel of the #21 Chevy.
. . .
Late Model points leader C.E. Falk warmed up for this weekend's Hampton Heat 200 by competing in last Friday's 200-lapper at South Boston Speedway. His seventh-place outing there allowed him to hang onto seventh in this week's NASCAR Whelen All-American Series National Top 500. Connecticut Mod ace Keith Rocco continues to hold the top spot.
Other Langley regulars in the upper echelon of the national rankings include: Woody Howard (13th), Greg Edwards (21st), Wes Falk (26th), Danny Edwards Jr. (35th) and Mark Wertz (65th).
Langley Speedway remains well-represented in the Virginia state standings, holding five of the top eight spots. C.E. Falk is second, behind Justin Johnson of South Boston. Howard is fourth, while Greg Edwards, Wes Falk and Danny Edwards Jr. are sixth, seventh and eighth, in that order. Wertz and Brandon Gdovic check in at 13th and 18th, respectively.
. . .
NASCAR action continues at Langley Speedway on Saturday, July 17, with a 100-lap Late Model contest topping the bill. The B&C Seafood Modifieds, Super Trucks, UCARs and Rhonnda Claiborne, Realtor HRKC Pro Winged Champ Karts round out that evening's feature slate.
. . .
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.
