Hampton Va. --

NASCAR K&N Pro Series East
at Langley Speedway - Hampton, VA
Preview: Visit Hampton VA 175 set for this Saturday
Wednesday, June 15, 2011

HAMPTON, Va. (June 15) — A bevy of up-and-coming young stars will fill the starting grid this Saturday, June 18, as the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East makes its debut appearance at Langley Speedway for the VisitHamptonVA 175, the seventh event on the series’ 12-race 2011 slate.
In addition to the 175-lap feature race, Saturday’s lineup includes Twin 25s for the KeesVacations.com Modifieds and a 40-lapper for the Pepsi Grand Stocks.
Front gates open at 1 p.m., just in time for fans to catch the final NASCAR K&N Pro Series East practice. Practice rounds for the local divisions begins at 2:05, while time trials get under way at 4:30.
An autograph session with the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East drivers starts at 5:30. Pre-race ceremonies begin at 6:55 and the Grand Stocks lead off the racing program at 7. The Visit HamptonVA 175 is slated for an 8 p.m. green flag.
On race day, tickets are $20 for adults. Military personnel and senior citizens receive a $2 discount off the adult ticket price. Kids, 12 and under, are admitted free when accompanied by an adult.
Advance tickets are available online at the track’s Web site, <www.langley-speedway.com>, and at the Speedway office during regular business hours. All advance tickets are $15.

The NASCAR K&N Pro Series East traces its roots back to 1987 and what was known as the Busch Grand National North Series. Over the years, NASCAR consolidated its roster of regional touring series under a standardized set of rules, eventually arriving at the current Pro Series East/West format.
Among the notables the series has produced are: former NASCAR Sprint Cup Series drivers Ricky Craven and Steve Park; current Sprint Cup stars Joey Logano, Martin Truex Jr. and Daytona 500 winner Trevor Bayne; NASCAR Nationwide Series driver Ryan Truex; and, Modified ace Mike Stefanik.
Virginia-based Late Model drivers, including Curtis Markham, Brandon Butler and Peyton Sellers, have also made their mark with top-10 finishes in the series standings
• • •
Darrell Wallace Jr., who graduated from high school just last weekend, brings a narrow five-point lead into the VisitHamptonVA 175. Max Gresham is second in the current standings, followed by Matt DiBenedetto, Brett Moffitt and Coleman Pressley.
Through the season’s first six races, Moffitt is the series’ only repeat winner with two victories. Other winners include Wallace, Gresham, DiBenedetto and Sergio Pena, with one victory apiece. All six of the victories went into the “W” column for Toyota.
• • •
Saturday’s VisitHamptonVA 175 marks the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East’s third trip of the season to Virginia. Pena won at South Boston Speedway, while Wallace grabbed the checkers at Richmond International Raceway.
• • •
Gresham is the series’ most recent winner, coming out on top in last Saturday’s Slack Auto Parts 150 at Gresham Motorsports Park in Jefferson, Ga. The track is owned and operated by his family.
• • •
Chase Elliott and Cale Conley will be paying their second visits of the season to Langley. Both were in the field for the May 28 USARacing Pro Cup Series race.
Elliott, son of NASCAR Sprint Cup legend Bill Elliott, qualified on the outside pole for that event and finished fourth. Conley, meanwhile, held his ground, starting and finishing 12th.
• • •
When it comes to seat time at Langley, no one on the VisitHamptonVA 175 entry list can top the father-and-son duo of Rick and Brandon Gdovic. Brandon finished seventh in last year’s Late Model points chase, while Rick was 11th. Their #46 (Brandon) and #64 (Rick) Dodges are prepared at their shop in nearby Gloucester.
• • •
Fans will have an early opportunity to meet NASCAR K&N Pro Series East drivers and get an up-close look at the cars on Friday, June 17, when the Speedway hosts a gathering in the Town Square area at the Peninsula Town Center, located just off I-64 on Mercury Blvd.
During the first hour of the event, which begins at 4 p.m., drivers will be available for interviews with the media. From 5-7 p.m., the public is invited to greet the drivers, collect autographs and snap photos.
• • •
Cameron Patrick will try to extend his season-opening four-race winning streak in Saturday’s Mod Twin 25s. The streak looked to be in jeopardy in last weekend’s 50-lapper before heavy rains arrived to offer Patrick a reprieve.
After qualifying on the outside pole, Patrick got shuffled out of the top five in the opening laps. He worked his way back into third on a restart at lap 14, only to tangle with second-place Chris Johnson on lap 18, bringing out the second yellow flag.
During the ensuing caution period, rain began to fall, quickly becoming a downpour, and prompted the cancellation of the rest of the evening’s program, preserving Patrick’s perfect record.
• • •
While Patrick has enjoyed a monopoly on the Modified winner’s circle, the Grand Stock division is still waiting for its first repeat race winner. Ricky Derrick, Mark Claar and Rodney Boyd have each scored a victory in the year’s first three races.
• • •
The Crossroads Fuel Service Late Model Stock Cars return to action at Langley Speedway on Saturday, June 25, in the Super Cuts Twin 50s. The Heritage Motor Co. Super Streets, Larry King Law Super Trucks, EZ Auto of Newport News UCARs, Rhonnda Claiborne, Realtor HRKC Pro Winged Champ Karts and Standard Welding Pro Sixes round out the schedule.
Racing activities at Langley shift to Friday on July 1 as the track hosts Old Point National Bank Night. That evening's lineup includes KeesVacations.com Modifieds, Pepsi Grand Stocks, Cycle City Corp. INEX Legends and Enduros. The program will be highlighted by the track's annual fireworks extravaganza.
The season's biggest Late Model Stock Car event, the Hampton Heat 200, is slated for Saturday, July 9. Super Streets, Super Trucks, UCARs and Pro Sixes will also be on hand.
• • •
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.
