Race Report
Saturday, May 21, 2011

HAMPTON, Va. (May 21) — Greg Edwards led wire-to-wire, surviving a pair of late restarts, and posted his second consecutive victory in the Peak Health 100 presented by Dr. Mimi Peak 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.
Edwards was the pole-sitter for the race, topping the afternoon qualifying session with a lap at 89.564 mph. Matt Waltz was second-quickest, followed by Paul Debolt, Danny Edwards Jr. and Wes Falk. Two-time track champ C.E. Falk lined up behind his brother, in the seventh slot.
On the start, Edwards and Waltz dueled into Turns 1 and 2 with Edwards gaining the advantage as the field spilled onto the backstretch for the first time. Waltz slipped into the runner-up spot, while Debolt, Edwards Jr. and Wes Falk filled out the top five.
On lap 2, Wes Falk nosed ahead of Edwards Jr. to take over fourth. Seven laps later, on the ninth circuit, Edwards Jr. returned the favor and regained the position.
Second place changed hands on lap 10 when Debolt scooted ahead of Waltz at the end of the backstretch. Meanwhile, C.E. Falk was beginning to rumble. He moved past his brother for fifth on lap 11 and swiped fourth from Edwards Jr. on lap 14.
At the front, Greg Edwards was enjoying a leisurely drive, up by five lengths over Debolt, who had quickly driven away from Waltz, once the pass for second had been completed.
Dean Shiflett, who started sixth, made his way into the top five for the first time on lap 20, getting the better of Danny Edwards Jr. through Turns 1 and 2.
Continuing his march toward the point, C.E. Falk drove underneath Waltz in Turn 3 on lap 24 and finished off the pass for third in that same corner on the next circuit. Over half a straightaway separated Falk and second-place Debolt.
Edwards had a four-length edge over Debolt as he prepared to wade into slower traffic on lap 30. He broke into the clear on lap 33, having increased his lead as Debolt got hung up on the outside of Mitch Sarvis. A few laps later, though, Edwards suffered a similar fate as Casey Wyatt battled him to stay on the lead lap, giving Debolt a chance to close ground.
Nearing the midway point, the fifth-place dogfight between Shiflett and Wes Falk heated up. Falk grabbed the spot on lap 49 and, three laps later, Shiflett pulled onto the pit lane.
As the race continued, caution-free, Greg Edwards stretched his lead to half a straightaway over Debolt, who saw C.E. Falk growing larger in his mirror.
On lap 70, Falk ducked under Debolt off Turn 4. He gained the clear-cut advantage through Turns 1 and 2 on lap 71. Driving away from Debolt, Falk turned his attention to Edwards. The leader was an elusive target, though, as Falk was unable to narrow the half-straightaway gap.
The first caution flag flew on lap 82 when Wes Falk and Shiflett locked horns in Turn 2 and Falk spun. Falk fell to the rear of the lead-lap cars, while Shiflett called it a night and headed for his pit stall, retiring to a 16th-place finish.
As the field gathered for a restart, Matt and Kyle Waltz, who were in fourth and fifth, respectively, gave up their spots in line to test their luck in the outside groove. They were joined by Edwards Jr., who had slipped back to seventh.
Facing a challenge for the first time in a while, Edwards bolted from the pack when the green flag reappeared with C.E. Falk in tow. Falk stayed on the leader’s rear bumper until lap 86 when his machine wandered up the track in Turn 2. The slip allowed Edwards to fashion a four-length margin. By lap 95, the gap had swelled to almost half a straightaway.
Edwards’ cruise to the winner’s circle was interrupted on lap 98, however, when the second yellow flag was unfurled for debris in Turn 2. Lining up for a three-lap sprint to the finish, Greg Edwards and C.E. Falk held down first and second, followed by Matt Waltz, Debolt and Danny Edwards Jr.
Under green for the final time, Edwards and Falk darted away as Waltz and Debolt clashed on the frontstretch. Waltz and Debolt both continued without losing positions, but the lead duo was long gone.
Over the closing circuits, Edwards opened a three-length advantage over Falk and maintained that margin to the checkers, winning by 0.562-second. Matt Waltz was third, followed by Debolt. Kyle Waltz was fifth to the stripe, bypassing Danny Edwards Jr. on the last lap.
Wes Falk tailed Edwards Jr. to the stripe, in seventh, followed by Mark Wertz and Shayne Lockhart. Doug Godsey was 10th, the final driver to complete the entire distance.
In Victory Lane after the race, Greg Edwards offered a tip of the cap to C.E. Falk: “That was a great win. Y’know, I just knew C.E. would work his way up there. When he got up there and we had three to go, I was like, ‘Oh, no. He’s gonna remember last week (two weeks ago, actually).’ I kinda got in the back of C.E. with five to go (in the May 7 race). I was, maybe, a little too hungry for a win and got in the back of him. But, I think we’ve made up and he showed class tonight ‘cause he probably coulda ran in the back of me. I was just running like hell that last three laps. I just wanted to go as fast as I could go to try and get away from him. It’s a good thing he started back where he did ‘cause he worked his way all the way to second under green. Probably woulda been a lot more exciting if he hadn’t had to wear his car out getting up there.”
Turning to his own machine, Edwards continued, “The car was good tonight. I mean, this car’s been fast since we brought it out last year and we just keep tweaking on it and making it better. Man, I’m just hoping for a great season.”

In the evening’s other feature events:

In the 40-lap Pepsi Grand Stock race, Mark Claar grabbed the lead on the fourth circuit and led the rest of the way for his first win of the season.
Robbie Parker was the fast qualifier for the event, at 78.239 mph. A spin of the inversion wheel yielded an “8,” however, dropping him to the outside of Row 4. J.R. Smith assumed the pole position with Chris Spangler alongside. Mark Frye and Claar shared Row 2, followed, in Row 3, by Carl Livingston and Ricky Derrick. Rodney Boyd and Parker made up Row 4.
As the field circulated on its pace laps, Boyd’s machine was suddenly crippled by transmission troubles. He made it to the pit lane, but his crew was unable to solve the problem, leaving him on the sidelines.
On the start, Smith moved out front, pulling ahead of Spangler off Turn 2. Claar advanced to second place, shadowed the leader for a lap, then launched a bid for the top spot on lap 3.
Claar drove underneath Smith in Turns 3 and 4 on lap 3 and completed the pass for the lead off Turn 2 on lap 4. A lap later, Parker overtook Smith for second and left the door open for Derrick and Livingston, who also slipped by.
Working lap 6, Claar held a four-length advantage over Parker. An equal distance separated Parker from third-place Derrick. Little by little, though, Parker began to ease away from Derrick and close the gap on Claar.
The only caution flag appeared on lap 10 when officials spotted a fuel leak from Derrick’s third-place machine. After a visit to the pits, he rejoined the rear of the field.
Back under green, Claar bolted to a four-length lead over Parker. Within three laps, Claar had added another length to his margin as Parker dealt with a challenge from Livingston.
Nearing the halfway mark, Parker was able to drive away from Livingston and closed to within two lengths of the leader. Meanwhile, Derrick was on the comeback trail, up to fourth, but almost a straightaway behind the lead trio.
At lap 23, Parker drew to within a car-length of Claar. That was as close as he would get, though, as Claar eased away over the second half of the event, winning by 0.740-second — about four lengths. Parker was second, followed by Livingston, Derrick and Frye.

Pole starter Steve Keesee led all 25 laps for his first win of the year in the Cycle City Corp. INEX Legends feature.
Keesee earned the pole position with a lap at 78.490 mph. Brad Hancock, last week’s winner, started on the outside pole, followed by Chris Raiford, Jamie Price and Rette Causey.
The first attempt at a start went awry when Raiford spun in Turn 4, sending cars scattering to miss him. A complete restart was ordered with Raiford and Causey at the rear of the lineup.
Finally under way, Keesee moved out front, as Hancock settled into second. Dannie Wyatt and Cameron Patrick emerged in third and fourth, while Brian May and Michael Edwards jousted for fifth.
Twelfth on the original grid, Spencer Saunders was the man on the move in the opening circuits. By lap 2, he was up to the sixth spot and, two laps later, he cracked the top five. On lap 6, he teamed up with Patrick to bypass Wyatt, taking over fourth. And, on lap 8, he and May double-teamed Patrick, moving him up to third.
At the front, Keesee was keeping Hancock at arm’s length. As the crossed flags were displayed, he held a two-length edge. Over half a straightaway separated the lead duo from third-place Saunders, who had May and Patrick in tow.
On lap 20, Hancock closed to within a car-length of Keesee’s rear bumper. A lap later, they were nose-to-tail as the battle for the win began to unfold.
Before the tussle could develop, however, the race’s second caution flag waved as Wyatt and Scotty Edwards tangled into Turn 1, sending Edwards for a flip.
Back under green, Keesee held Hancock at bay for a lap before the third, and final, yellow flag appeared for Bobby Gobble’s spin at the start/finish line.
As the race resumed, Keesee, Hancock and Saunders broke away in bumper-to-bumper formation. Reaching the end of the backstretch, though, Keesee was able to manufacture one car-length’s separation from his pursuers.
Hancock continued to tail Keesee until the final corner when he ducked low in a last-ditch bid for the checkers. His charge came up just short, though, as Keesee held on to win by 79-thousandths of a second — just less than a car-length. Saunders was third to the stripe, followed by May and Raiford.

Landon Florian overcame an eight-car inversion and nabbed his third straight win in the 25-lap EZ Auto of Newport News UCAR race. Dating back to last season, he now has six consecutive victories in the division.
Florian paced afternoon time trials, at 73.141 mph. He dialed up an “8” on the inversion wheel, though, bumping him to the outside of Row 4. The inversion should have placed his brother on the pole, but Adam Florian was unable to answer the bell in his #80 machine. Instead, he took over Mason Sawyer’s #1 car and retreated to the tail of the grid.
With Adam Florian deployed out back, the pole passed to Bill Eaker, who shared the front row with Andy Graham. Matt Morgan, John Reardon and Chris Hildebrand completed the top five.
As the race got going, Eaker pulled ahead of Graham to take the early lead. Coming around to complete lap 2, Graham ducked under Eaker off the fourth corner. At the other end of the track, the two tangled and Eaker slammed the outside wall as the caution flag waved.
Morgan was the leader when the green flag reappeared, flanked by Sammy Gaita, who gave up the third spot in line to restart alongside the leader. Back under way, Gaita jumped out front, but was tipped sideways by Morgan in Turn 1. Gaita made the save as Gaita pulled away with a mirror-full of Landon Florian.
Florian took the lead from Morgan on lap 3. Before that lap was officially in the books, though, the second caution flag flew for a multi-car tangle in Turn 2. Scoring reverted to lap 2 and Morgan was returned to the lead.
On the ensuing restart, Florian chose to pull to the outside of Morgan. The bid paid off as he cleared Morgan as they passed the flagstand. Gaita tagged along with Florian and picked up the second position, followed by Hildebrand. On lap 7, Adam Florian made his way into the top five.
Caution #3 appeared on lap 9 when James Hite walloped the outside wall at the end of the back straightaway.
On the restart, Landon Florian was joined on the front row by his older brother. The two dueled until they reached Turn 3 and Landon motored ahead. By lap 12, Landon’s lead had grown to four lengths over Adam, who was busy holding off Gaita, Hildebrand and Eaker.
On lap 13, Hildebrand overtook Gaita for third. He continued the charge on lap 17, snagging second from Adam Florian in Turns 1 and 2. Florian returned the favor at the other end of the track and, a lap later, Hildebrand was off the pace.
The final caution flag was displayed on lap 19 as officials directed Reardon and his heavily smoking machine to the pits. That lap also spelled a premature end for Hildebrand, who headed to the sidelines.
On the last restart, Landon Florian quickly broke free, while Adam Florian found himself in a three-wide tussle with Gaita and Eaker. Eaker eventually took the spot, but, by then, Landon Florian has driven off into the distance.
At the finish, Landon Florian was the winner by 2.511 seconds — half a straightaway — over Eaker, who made a remarkable comeback from his early-race accident. Gaita was third, slipping by Adam Florian on the last lap. Landon Abbott was fifth at the end.

In a 20-lapper for the Rhonnda Claiborne, Realtor HRKC Pro Winged Champ Karts, Adam Chalkley assumed the lead on lap 2 and showed the way to the checkered flag.
Chris O’Brien was the fast qualifier, at 60.308 mph. Charlie-Ray Lorah, Bill Dailey, Vaughan Crittenden and Chalkley rounded out the top five on the 19-kart grid.
As the race got under way, O’Brien motored out front and was quickly joined by Dailey and Chalkley. Behind them, a second pack of six karts jousted, two-by-two.
On the second circuit, Dailey may have gotten a bit overexuberant with the “bump drafting” as he sent O’Brien around in Turn 4, prompting the race’s only caution flag and handing the lead to Chalkley.
Back under green, Chalkley and Lorah linked up in a draft and opened some separation between themselves and the rest of the pack.
Over the remaining laps, mini-packs, headed by Crittenden and David Millard, formed and took runs at Chalkley and Lorah. They were all unsuccessful, however, as the two leaders maintained a tight, disciplined draft.
Coming to the checkers, Lorah finally broke ranks in a bid for the win. He came up just short, though, as Chalkley nipped him by half a kart-length — 49-thousandths of a second, officially. David Millard was third, followed by Tommy Sweeney and Daniel Millard.

Macy Causey rebounded from a spin on lap 3 and notched the victory in a 15-lap feature for the CBX Modular Homes INEX Bandoleros.
Causey was the pole-sitter for the event, qualifying at 65.205 mph, and she led laps 1 and 2. A spin off Turn 2 on lap 3, though, brought out the only yellow flag and earned her a trip to the rear of the field.
Back under green, Brenden Queen was the new leader and he quickly pulled away by almost half a straightaway over Darrell Adkins. Meanwhile, Causey was slicing her way back toward the front. On lap 5, Causey overhauled Adkins for second, then began to close on Queen.
Causey’s rally seemed to have stalled at the midway point as Queen maintained a three-length advantage. On lap 9, though, he drifted wide in Turn 4 and Causey pounced, picking up the lead on lap 10.
By the finish, Causey’s margin of victory had swelled to 3.903 seconds — more than half a straightaway — over Queen. Adkins was third, followed by Cameron Bowen. Evan Horne was credited with fifth.

In the evening’s final event, a 50-lapper for the Enduros, Danny Harrell moved out front on lap 13 and held on for the victory.
Larry Drommerhausen drew the pole, but gave way to Alex Floroff on the opening lap. On lap 2, Mike Ganoe Sr. took the lead and showed the way until lap 13 when Harrell took command.
After leading by as much as a straightaway, Harrell got a bit of a challenge in the closing circuits. UCAR regular Bill Eaker swiped second place from Ganoe on lap 44 and began to close on the leader.
In the last six circuits, Eaker halved Harrell’s lead to five lengths. He simply ran out of laps, though, as Harrell took the checkered flag. Ganoe tailed Harrell and Eaker to the stripe, in third, followed by Drommerhausen and Floroff.
