Race Report
Saturday, June 4, 2011

HAMPTON, Va. (June 4) — Two-time track champion C.E. Falk posted his first two wins of the 2011 campaign, sweeping the Budweiser Twin 50s for the Crossroads Fuel Service Late Model Stock Cars, the featured events of Saturday evening’s NASCAR Whelen All-American Series program at Langley Speedway.
Falk set the pace in afternoon time trials, which determined the starting order for the first 50-lapper. He qualified at 88.836 mph, just nipping Matt Waltz for the pole by 13-thousandths of a second.
For his part, Waltz was only one-thousandth quicker than Danny Edwards Jr. and Doug Godsey, who turned in identical times and shared Row 2, and two-thousandths quicker than Greg Edwards, who lined up fifth on the 19-car grid.
Race #1: The opener got under way with a bang as Waltz and Godsey tangled in Turn 3 on the first circuit. Before the dust had settled, the first five cars in the outside line had been collected as officials scrambled to realign the field for a full restart.
On the second try at a start, Falk quickly cleared 12th-place qualifier Jeff Shiflett, who had assumed the outside pole. Danny Edwards Jr. grabbed second, while Shiflett slipped into a door-to-door battle for third with Greg Edwards.
The second and third caution flags flew on laps 2 and 8.
On the restart after Caution #2, Paul Debolt opted for the outside lane and came away with the runner-up spot. Danny Edwards Jr. tried to return the favor on the restart at lap 8, but Debolt held him off. Greg Edwards was on the move, though, swiping the third position from his brother.
After a green-flag stint that lasted from laps 8-22, the caution flags started piling up again with incidents on laps 23, 26 and 27. That last one proved costly to Debolt and Greg Edwards, who both earned trips to the rear of the field when they tangled in Turn 2, collecting three other cars in the process.
Getting set for a restart at lap 27, Falk continued to show the way. Danny Edwards Jr. was second, followed by Wes Falk, the leader’s younger brother, Mark Wertz and Shiflett.
Back under green, C.E. Falk quickly cleared Wes Falk, who was restarting on his outside flank. The younger Falk dropped into a side-by-side duel with Edwards Jr., who took control of second on lap 28. Kyle Waltz, who had joined Wes Falk on the outside, slid into the fourth spot, followed by Wertz.
On lap 31, Shiflett scooted past Wertz to return to the top five. Five laps later, he overtook Kyle Waltz for fourth and brought Greg Edwards along with him, to fifth. Meanwhile, C.E. Falk was steadily easing away from the fray, extending his lead to almost half a straightaway.
The seventh caution flag waved on lap 37.
As the race resumed, C.E. Falk and Edwards Jr. motored ahead of Wes Falk, who again restarted on the outside. A lap later, Shiflett disposed of Wes Falk and, once more, Greg Edwards tagged along.
With nine laps to go, Greg Edwards took aim at Shiflett, ducking underneath him on the backstretch and nosing ahead at the line to snag third. While his pursuers scuffled in his mirror, C.E. Falk was setting sail, rebuilding his half-straightaway margin.
The final caution flag fluttered on lap 47 when one of the battered machines shed a piece of debris in Turn 2. Setting the running order, C.E. Falk was the leader, followed by Danny Edwards Jr. and Greg Edwards. Shiflett ran fourth, followed by Wertz.
Under green for a four-lap sprint to the finish, C.E. Falk gained a one-length edge over Edwards Jr., who fashioned a similar gap between himself and his brother.
By the end, Falk had increased his winning margin to three lengths over Danny Edwards Jr. Greg Edwards, Shiflett and Wertz completed the top five. Kyle Waltz headed up the second five, in sixth, followed by Wes Falk, Chris Hopkins, Debolt and Terry Carroll. Shayne Lockhart and Lee Reinhardt were 11th and 12th, respectively, also on the lead lap.
In the winner’s circle for the first time in ‘11, Falk’s relief was palpable: “Man, it feels so great to be back. Had a long winter, a lot of changes. New race cars. New sponsor. Man, she was rolling tonight. We’re working hard. We were tired of getting our butt handed to us by the 21 (Greg Edwards), so we went to work and I think we’ve got a good piece for the rest of the year.”
Race #2: Ordinarily, when running twin races, the first event will be relatively sedate, as competitors conserve their equipment to be sure they’ll make it to the second race. After eight caution flags in Race #1, though, the field had to be approaching the nightcap with some trepidation.
The lineup for Race #2 was determined by the finishing order of Race #1, putting C.E. Falk on the pole, flanked by Danny Edwards Jr. Greg Edwards and Shiflett made up Row 2 with Wertz starting fifth.
As the green flag fell, Falk and Edwards Jr. raced door-to-door into the first and second turns. Falk grabbed the upper hand off Turn 2, leaving Edwards Jr. to contend with his brother for second.
Before that duel could develop, though, the first caution flag was displayed for a three-car incident at the start/finish line. So, here we go again with the caution flags? Not really... at least for a while.
Back under green, Falk motored ahead of Wertz, who restarted on the outside, to seize command. Danny Edwards Jr. held second, while Greg Edwards and Wes Falk claimed third and fourth.
On lap 7, Greg Edwards drove underneath his brother into Turn 1 and grabbed second place at the end of the backstretch. Though brief, the exchange allowed Falk to pad his lead to six lengths. Once in the clear, however, Greg Edwards began to close in. By lap 17, he had cut the gap in half. The charge seemed to stall when he got to within three lengths, though, as Falk began to ease away again.
In Race #2, not even the leader was immune from the occasional scuffle as was demonstrated when Falk tried to put a lap on Reinhardt in Turn 3 on lap 31. The two made slight contact and Reinhardt spun, prompting the second yellow flag.
At that point, it would have been appropriate to say, “Here we go again!” Between laps 31 and 34, the yellow flag waved five times in rapid succession. Among the highlights (or lowlights, depending on your perspective) were a tangle involving Greg Edwards and Wes Falk that sent them both to the rear of the field and a scary incident involving Godsey and Jeff Shiflett that saw Shiflett go airborne, then head-on into the outside wall between Turns 3 and 4.
Lining up for what would turn out to be the final restart, C.E. Falk maintained the lead, followed by Danny Edwards Jr. Debolt was third, but gave up that spot in line to test his fortune on the outside of the leader.
Returning to green, Falk and Debolt dueled all the way to Turn 4. Exiting the corner, Falk powered ahead, while Debolt slipped into second, ahead of Edwards Jr., who had a mirror-full of his brother, Greg.
On lap 38, Greg Edwards scooted past Danny Edwards Jr. in Turns 3 and 4 to take over third. A few laps later, Wertz slipped by Edwards Jr., who was beginning to fade in the waning circuits.
Closing in on the finish, Greg Edwards zeroed in on Debolt’s runner-up spot. Meanwhile, Falk had driven away to a commanding lead.
At the checkers, Falk was the winner by half a straightaway over Debolt, who held off Greg Edwards for second. Wertz tailed the lead trio to the line, in fourth, while Dean Shiflett grabbed fifth from Danny Edwards Jr. on the white-flag lap. Following Edwards Jr. to the line were Kyle Waltz, in seventh, Renno Marchetti IV, Reinhardt and Carroll.
In Victory Lane after the race, Falk initially struggled to find words to describe the wild-and-wooly event: “We started conserving fuel there at the end, man, like it’s the Coke 600 or something. Great night for our team. We were tired of getting kicked in the mouth and we went to work and had a great test Friday. Man, what an awesome racecar. It was the best car I’ve had here in two years and that’s saying a lot. I’ve had a lot of good cars here.”
After Saturday’s dual slugfests, it’ll be interesting to see what transpires next week when the Late Models return to action in Twin 75s.

In the evening’s other featured events:

In the 40-lap Pepsi Grand Stock race, Rodney Boyd inched ahead of Ricky Derrick at the finish line to claim his first victory of the season.
Boyd was fastest in afternoon qualifying, circling the .395-mile oval at 77.905 mph. Carl Livingston was second-quickest, followed by Derrick, Robbie Parker and Mark Frye.
On the start, Boyd jumped out front, leaving Livingston in a side-by-side battle with Derrick. Derrick eventually claimed the spot and brought Parker along with him, to third. The early duel, though, allowed Boyd to open a half-straightaway advantage.
By lap 6, Mark Claar, the winner of the previous Grand Stock race, had moved from his ninth starting position into the top five. Continuing to charge, he picked off Livingston for fourth on lap 13, then went three-wide past Parker and a lapped machine to gain third on lap 15. Soon, he was parked on Derrick’s bumper.
The first caution flag waved on lap 22 to investigate a fluid leak from Billy Newman’s #54 machine. As the field gathered for a restart, Claar chose to give up the third place in line and pull alongside Boyd.
Back under green, Claar slipped neatly into second place as the pack rolled into Turn 1. Exiting Turn 2, he drove underneath Boyd in a challenge for the lead. Exiting Turn 4, though, he suddenly dropped off the pace as Boyd rocketed ahead.
The second, and final, yellow flag flew on lap 24 when Claar was unable to make it back to the pits, grinding to a halt at the end of the backstretch.
As the race resumed, Derrick latched onto Boyd’s rear bumper and began hunting for an opening. He found it on lap 32 and took the lead for the first time.
Two laps later, though, Boyd returned the favor, moving back out front. On lap 36, it was Derrick’s turn to retake the lead, closing in on the finish. On lap 39, Boyd ducked below Derrick in Turn 2 and the two headed for the white flag side-by-side.
Off the last corner, Boyd surged ahead and beat Derrick to the stripe by half a car-length. Parker tailed the two leaders to the line, in third, followed by Livingston. Frye was fifth to the stripe, but failed to clear the post-race inspection. Michael Waters moved up to fifth in the amended rundown.

Brad Hancock started on the pole, at 77.752 mph, and led all 25 laps to notch his second win of the year in the Cycle City Corp. INEX Legends race.
While Hancock maintained a fairly comfortable margin throughout the event, Chris Raiford and Steve Keesee staged a furious battle for the runner-up spot. That duel came to an end, however, when they tangled in Turn 4 on lap 18, prompting the race’s only yellow flag.
Lining up for the restart, Hancock showed the way, followed by Jamie Price, Cameron Patrick, Joe Hendricks Jr. and Spencer Saunders.
As the race resumed, Price rode Hancock’s bumper over to Turn 2. Spilling onto the backstretch, though, Hancock pulled away by two car-lengths. Meanwhile, Patrick had moved up to challenge Price for second.
On lap 23, Patrick scooted past Price off Turn 4. The shuffle allowed Hancock to extend his lead and he won by nearly half a straightaway. Patrick was second, while Price, Hendricks and Saunders completed the top five.

Casey Sipe took the lead on a restart at lap 11 and rolled to his first victory in a 30-lapper for the Standard Welding Pro Sixes, snapping Doug Warren’s unbeaten streak.
Looking for his fourth straight win, Warren earned the pole with an 80.448-mph qualifying effort. Steve Williams, Bobby Hall, Anthony Perez and Joe White completed the top five on the 11-car grid. Sipe didn’t post a qualifying lap and lined up 10th.
Warren took the early lead, as the race got going, pulling away by six lengths. It soon became apparent, though, that he was laboring as Hall closed to within two lengths.
The first caution flag appeared on lap 11. It was quickly followed by another on the ensuing restart. As the field bunched again, Sipe gave up his third spot in line and pulled alongside Warren, ready to challenge for the lead.
Back under green, Warren cleared Sipe into Turn 1. Sipe kept his machine wound up in the high lane, however, and drew even with the leader on the backstretch. At the line, Sipe was the new leader by half a car-length. The two continued to duel until lap 13 when Sipe gained the clear-cut advantage. Within five laps, Sipe had opened a five-length margin.
The yellow flag flew four more times between laps 21 and 24. The last of those four incidents came on a restart when Warren failed to come up to speed and tangled with Hall, sending Hall to the sidelines and Warren to the back of the pack.
On the final restart, Sipe darted away from White and won by better than half a straightaway. White was second, followed by Kevin Adams, Williams and Warren Smigo. Warren struggled to a seventh-place finish, a lap off the pace.

Tommy Sweeney was awarded the win in the Rhonnda Claiborne, Realtor HRKC Pro Winged Champ Kart race. After two caution flags in the early going raised fuel mileage concerns, the race was trimmed from 20 to 19 laps.
Chris O’Brien started on the pole, at 60.247 mph, and led the first 18 circuits. Coming around to receive the checkered flag, however, he got turned around by second-place Charlie-Ray Lorah.
Lorah crossed the finish line in first, but officials immediately reviewed the end of the event and penalized him to the tail of the lead lap for spinning O’Brien. Lorah’s ouster handed the win to Sweeney.
David Millard and Daniel Millard were second and third in the official rundown, while Bill Dailey and Sparky West rounded out the top five. O’Brien ended up 10th and Lorah was 14th.

Mike Ganoe drew the pole and led all the way to win a 50-lap contest for the Enduro division, the evening’s final feature.
Danny Harrell, who won the Enduro opener, started last in the 11-car field. By lap 9, though, he was up to second place and closing on the leader.
With eight laps to go, Harrell was camped out on Ganoe’s rear bumper, just waiting to pull the trigger. A slip in Turns 1 and 2 on lap 45 cost him dearly, however, as Ganoe motored away by five lengths.
Harrell tried to rally in the closing circuits, but came up three lengths short at the stripe as Ganoe held on for the win. Alex Floroff followed Ganoe and Harrell to the line, in third. Bill Eaker and Larry Drommerhausen were fourth and fifth, both a lap down.
