Race Report
Saturday, June 11, 2011

HAMPTON, Va. (June 11) — With lightning flashing in the distance and heavy rain on the way, C.E. Falk outran the weather and 19 other drivers to claim his third straight victory in the 75-lap Crossroads Fuel Service Late Model Stock Car portion of Saturday evening’s NASCAR Whelen All-American Series slate at Langley Speedway.
Falk earned the pole for the first of the scheduled Twin 75s, presented by Thomas Nelson Community College’s Truck Driver Training program, qualifying at 88.361 mph. Paul Debolt was second-fastest, just 44-thousandths of a second off Falk’s pace. Langley newcomer Matt Bowling, Dean Shiflett and Greg Edwards completed the top five on the starting grid.
As the race got under way, Debolt powered ahead of Falk and led the charge as the field rolled into Turn 1 for the first time. Officials ruled that Debolt had been a little too eager on the start and he was black-flagged.
On lap 4, Debolt slowed on the backstretch and came to the pit lane for a stop-and-go penalty, handing the top spot to Falk. Shiflett moved up to second, followed by Bowling, Edwards and Doug Godsey.
The third position changed hands on lap 9 when Edwards nudged Bowling aside at the end of the backstretch and finished off the pass exiting Turn 4. Godsey spotted the opening and tagged along with Edwards, taking over fourth place.
At lap 20, Falk held a six-length advantage over Shiflett, who saw Edwards growing larger in his mirror. Within six circuits, Edwards had pulled up on Shiflett’s rear bumper and was on the hunt for another position.
Edwards launched his bid for second on lap 29, driving underneath Shiflett in Turn 3. The two went side-by-side until they reached the backstretch on the following circuit. Heading toward Turn 3, Edwards gained the clear-cut edge. The swap allowed Falk to double his lead to a full straightaway.
Deeper in the field, Shayne Lockhart hounded Bowling, looking to crack the top five. After stalking Bowling for several laps, Lockhart pulled to the inside on lap 32, nosed ahead on lap 33 and completed the pass on lap 34.
Back toward the front, Godsey was on the charge, closing in on third-place Shiflett. On lap 49, Godsey slipped underneath Shiflett on the backstretch. They raced door-to-door for a couple laps with Godsey inching out out front on lap 50 and clearing Shiflett on lap 51.
The race’s only yellow flag flew on lap 51 when Rick Gdovic spun off Turn 4. The caution erased Falk’s lead, which was holding at a full straightaway over Greg Edwards. Godsey, Shiflett and Lockhart tailed the lead duo as the field slowly circulated around the .395-mile oval.
Bunching for a restart, Greg Edwards broke out of line, willing to test his luck on the outside of Falk. He was joined in the outer groove by Shiflett, Wes Falk, Eddie Johnson, Debolt and 2005 NASCAR Whelen All-American Series national champ Peyton Sellers.
As the race resumed, Falk leaped ahead of Edwards, who fell neatly in line on the leader’s rear deck. Behind them, Godsey and Shiflett renewed their battle for the third position. After a lap and a half, Godsey regained command of the position. In the meantime, though, he had lost precious ground to the two front-runners. As Godsey pulled away, Lockhart moved up to challenge Shiflett for fourth place.
At the head of the field, Falk was on cruise control. Just 10 laps after the restart, he had already fashioned a six-length lead and the gap widened with each passing circuit. A similar distance separated second-place Edwards from third-place Godsey as the race neared its conclusion.
On lap 71, Lockhart went after Shiflett for the fourth spot, driving low on the back straightaway. Shiflett got enough of a run off Turn 4 to hold Lockhart at bay on that circuit. The next time around, the advantage went to Lockhart, who cleared Shiflett off Turn 2 on lap 73.
At the checkers, Falk was the winner by 2.652 seconds — better than half a straightaway — over Edwards. Godsey was third to the line, while Lockhart and Shiflett were fourth and fifth, respectively.
Wes Falk headed up the second five, in sixth, followed by Debolt, Johnson, Mark Wertz and Bowling. Jeff Shiflett, Danny Edwards Jr. and Terry Carroll were 11th through 13th, in that order, the final drivers on the lead lap.
In abbreviated Victory Lane comments, Falk was clearly pumped up by his effort: “Man, this thing is rolling! It’s probably one of the best cars I’ve ever had here. Hopefully, we can go and do it again in another 75.”
Unfortunately, though, the weather intervened and prevented Falk from going for a second consecutive doubleheader sweep. Raindrops began to pelt the speedway at lap 18 of the very next race, the KeesVacations.com Modified 50-lapper. The shower soon turned into a deluge and officials made the rainout call shortly before 9 p.m.
In addition to the second of the Late Model Twins and the Modified feature, races for the Larry King Law Super Trucks and EZ Auto of Newport News UCARs were also claimed by the elements.

In the evening’s other featured event:

Ritchie German scrambled from third to first on the opening circuit and showed the way to his second win of the season in the 40-lap Heritage Motor Co. Super Street race.
Sitting in for 2009-10 division champ Randy Sample, Late Model regular Casey Wyatt snagged the pole position in afternoon time trials, at 74.283 mph. Ryan Nester was second-quickest, 48-thousandths of a second off Wyatt’s standard. German, Larry Venable and Kevin Alves lined up third, fourth and fifth, respectively.
When the initial green flag fell, Wyatt bolted into the lead with German in tow, leaving Nester stranded up high. Exiting Turn 2 for the first time, German immediately ducked underneath Wyatt in a bid for the lead. He drew even as they raced down the backstretch and grabbed the top spot off Turn 4.
As German pulled away, Nester swapped lanes and drove under Wyatt, coming away with second place through Turns 1 and 2 on lap 2. Alves and John Pereira emerged from the shuffle in fourth and fifth, while Venable slid back to ninth.
At lap 5, German was up by more than three lengths over Nester, who was two lengths ahead of Wyatt. Another half-straightaway separated the top three from Alves and Pereira, who were tussling over fourth.
On lap 12, as the leaders bypassed a slower machine, German added another car-length to his margin, while Wyatt narrowed the gap between himself and Nester.
Fourth place changed hands on lap 13 as Pereira slipped past Alves. By lap 17, Alves had slipped to seventh, also giving up spots to Sean Calway and Jamie Sample.
The first yellow flag appeared on lap 21 for Thomas Wilson’s spin on the backstretch. During the ensuing caution period, Alves headed to the attention of his crew before rejoining the field.
Gathering for a restart, Calway gave up the fifth spot in line and pulled alongside German. Back under way, German quickly cleared Calway, while Nester moved past in Turn 2. Calway slid into the third position, just ahead of Wyatt.
On lap 22, Wyatt regained the third spot from Calway and set off after German and Nester, who had pulled away by several car-lengths. Meanwhile, Calway dropped into a fourth-place scuffle with Pereira.
On lap 32, Wyatt scooted past Nester for second. Nester tried to return the favor on lap 33, but came up empty as Wyatt held the spot. Behind them, Jamie Sample had joined the battle for fourth and nabbed the position, bringing Pereira along with him and kicking Calway from the top five.
With wholesale position changes happening in his mirror, German continued to pad his lead, stretching the advantage to almost half a straightaway.
Three laps shy of the checkers, the second caution flag waved as Alves ground to a halt on the back straightaway, bringing an end to his night.
On the restart, heavy smoke began to pour from Wyatt’s second-place machine, prompting another yellow flag and chasing him to the pits for the duration. Nester assumed the runner-up spot as the field prepared to go back under green.
One more lap was completed before the fourth caution flag was unfurled for Mike Borden’s spin in Turn 3. Setting the running order, German and Nester went 1-2, followed by Sample, Pereira and Calway.
Under green for the final time, German managed a two-length advantage over Nester. Meanwhile, Calway and Venable both slipped past Pereira. While Calway powered ahead, though, Venable’s machine skated loose in Turn 4, allowing Pereira to retake fifth.
At the finish, German was the winner by 0.495-second — a little more than two lengths — over Nester. Sample was third to the line, but failed to clear the post-race inspection. His disqualification moved Calway and Pereira up to third and fourth in the amended rundown, while Venable was fifth.
