Race Report
Saturday, July 23, 2011

HAMPTON, Va. (July 23) — Looking to bolster his national title hopes, C.E. Falk notched his sixth and seventh wins of the season, sweeping both halves of the Larry King Law 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.
Second to Falk in the division points rundown, Greg Edwards earned the pole position for the front end of the doubleheader, lapping the .395-mile oval at 88.725 mph. Falk was second-quickest, just 73-thousandths of a second off Edwards’ pace. Casey Wyatt, Paul Debolt and Mark Wertz rounded out the top five on the 17-car grid.
Race #1: As the opener got going, Edwards and Falk dueled into Turns 1 and 2 with Edwards grabbing the upper hand as they spilled onto the backstretch. Wyatt rushed to fill the void to the inside of Falk. Entering Turn 1 to begin the second circuit, though, Falk cleared Wyatt for the runner-up spot.
Behind the lead trio, Brandon Gdovic, fresh from his first career top-five K&N Pro Series East finish, went door-to-door with Wertz for fourth. Gdovic gained the clear-cut advantage at the end of lap 3 and brought Wes Falk along with him, to fifth.
Back at the front, Edwards had fashioned a three-length margin over C.E. Falk, who enjoyed an equal separation over Wyatt. Gdovic and Wes Falk were six lengths behind Wyatt at lap 5.
On lap 8, C.E. Falk closed up on Edwards’ rear bumper and began sniffing around for an opening. He found it on lap 10, driving underneath the leader off Turn 2. He finished off the pass through Turns 3 and 4, while Wyatt moved up to join the lead battle.
By lap 14, Falk had opened a two-length gap over Edwards, who was busy with a challenge from Wyatt. On lap 18, Wyatt slipped under Edwards at the entrance to Turn 1 and wrested the second spot on the back straightaway. The shuffle allowed Falk to more than double his advantage.
Not content with the third position, Edwards rallied on lap 26, ducking below Wyatt off Turn 2. He regained the second spot through Turns 1 and 2 on lap 27 and motored away from Wyatt, who saw Gdovic and Wes Falk growing larger in his mirror. Meanwhile, C.E. Falk’s margin continued to swell.
Heading into the final 10 circuits, C.E. Falk was up by half a straightaway over Edwards, while another half-straightaway separated Edwards and Wyatt, Gdovic and Wes Falk, who were locked in nose-to-tail formation.
On lap 43, Gdovic nosed under Wyatt in Turns 1 and 2 in a bid for third. He nabbed the spot by inches as they returned to the stripe and cleared Wyatt in Turn 1 on lap 44, leaving the door open for Wes Falk, who advanced to fourth.
At the finish, C.E. Falk was the winner by 1.516 seconds — about half a straightaway — over Edwards. Gdovic was third, followed by Wes Falk and Wyatt. Debolt headed the second five, in sixth, while Wertz, Danny Edwards Jr., Jeff Shiflett and Terry Carroll completed the top 10.
Renno Marchetti IV, Dean Shiflett, Shayne Lockhart and Rick Gdovic were 11th-14th, respectively, all completing the caution-free event on the lead lap.
Race #2: The opening 50-lapper was the third race on the evening’s six-race slate, while the nightcap was scheduled for last. With foul weather encircling the Speedway and lightning flashing in the distance, however, officials made the call to run the two Late Model features back-to-back. After a 10-minute break, drivers headed back onto the track.
The lineup for the second race was determined by the finishing order of the first one, putting C.E. Falk on the pole, flanked by Greg Edwards. Brandon Gdovic and Wes Falk made up Row 2, followed by Wyatt, in fifth.
On the start, Falk and Edwards went side-by-side with Falk nosing ahead to lead the first circuit by mere inches. The battled continued on lap 2 and Falk finally gained the upper hand in Turns 3 and 4. Gdovic, Wyatt and Wes Falk emerged from the opening shuffle in third, fourth and fifth, in that order.
On lap 5, Wes Falk slipped underneath Wyatt in Turns 1 and 2. He grabbed fourth by half a car-length as they returned to the flagstand and cleared Wyatt on lap 6. Debolt lined up on Falk’s bumper and followed him past Wyatt, taking over fifth.
The first caution flag waved on lap 11 when Lockhart spun in Turn 2. As the field bunched for a restart, Greg Edwards, Debolt, Wertz, Danny Edwards Jr. and Dean Shiflett all broke out of line, opting for the outside lane.
Back under green, C.E. Falk quickly cleared Greg Edwards, who faced an immediate challenge from Gdovic. Behind them, Wyatt scooted by Debolt to retake fifth.
The second yellow flag flew on lap 15 when Marchetti spun off Turn 4. He was joined on pit road by Wertz, Danny Edwards Jr. and Rick Gdovic. After stops, they all returned to the track in time for the ensuing restart. Again, Greg Edwards chose the outside lane, followed by Debolt and Dean Shiflett.
As the race resumed, Falk dispensed with Edwards off Turn 2 and began to ease away. At lap 20, his advantage stood at three lengths over Edwards, who was another four lengths ahead of Gdovic and Wes Falk.
Working the 30th circuit, C.E. Falk’s lead had increased to five lengths over Greg Edwards. Over the next few laps, Edwards appeared to narrow the gap a bit, only to see Falk pull away again. Meanwhile, third-place Gdovic had fallen a straightaway behind the lead duo.
With a snarl of slower traffic looming in his windshield, C.E. Falk caught a break when the last of the race’s three caution flags appeared on lap 45 for Debolt and Wyatt’s tangle in Turn 1. Gathering for a restart, Greg Edwards headed to the outside groove, once more, joined by Lockhart, Shiflett, Wertz and Danny Edwards Jr.
Under green for a sprint to the checkers, C.E. Falk pulled ahead of Edwards, who also lost positions to Gdovic and Wes Falk, falling to fourth.
While C.E. Falk was cruising toward his second win of the night, a scuffle for second broke out on the white-flag lap as Wes Falk executed a bump-and-run to get past Gdovic in Turn 2, bringing Edwards along with him.
At the stripe, C.E. Falk was the winner by 0.834-second — about five lengths — over his younger brother, Wes. Greg Edwards was third, followed by Gdovic and Carroll. Jeff Shiflett came home sixth, while Lockhart, Wyatt, Danny Edwards Jr. and Wertz completed the top 10.
Dean Shiflett, Rick Gdovic, Marchetti and Debolt were 11th-14th, in that order, all finishing on the lead lap.
In Victory Lane after the second race, Falk noted the challenges of making the quick turnaround after Race #1: “It definitely didn’t drive as good in the second race as it did in the first race. In the first race, it was awesome. That definitely made it exciting for us. We didn’t quite know what the heck was going on. But, a great night for EF Motorsports — 40 (C.E.) and 41 (Wes), first and second. That’s what we always try for here and, man, that’s a great night.”

In the evening’s other featured events:

In the 40-lap Heritage Motor Co. Super Street race, Randy Sample led all the way from the pole to post his second straight victory and third of the season.
Sample qualified at 75.103 mph to nab the preferred starting spot. Points leader Ritchie German was second-fastest, followed by Jamie Sample, Ryan Nester and Rod Busitzky.
As the race got under way, Randy Sample cleared German out of Turn 2 to take the lead. German settled into second, while Jamie Sample, John Pereira and Busitzky emerged in third, fourth and fifth. On lap 3, Pereira edged ahead of Jamie Sample for third.
At lap 8, Randy Sample held a one-length advantage over German. Pereira and Jamie Sample were half a straightaway back, while another half-straightaway separated them from Busitzky.
German stayed within a car-length of the leader until lap 34 when he skittered loose in Turns 1 and 2, allowing Randy Sample to pad his margin.
At the end of the caution-free run, Randy Sample was the winner by 0.913-second — a little more than three lengths — over German. Pereira was third, while Jamie Sample and Busitzky rounded out the top five.

In the 25-lap Larry King Law Super Truck feature, Tommy Nixon was awarded his fifth win of the year when the apparent winner, Chase McAdams, failed to clear the post-race technical inspection.
Nixon started on the pole, at 73.656 mph, but gave way to Robbie Davis on lap 1. He rallied back to the front on lap 2, though, and paced laps 2-14.
On a restart at lap 15, Nixon didn’t come up to speed immediately and McAdams took command of the event. Nixon, meanwhile, slipped back to fourth place.
While McAdams held sway at the point, Nixon maintained fourth until the closing circuits when his machine suddenly came back to life. In the final five laps, he picked off Jonathan Mullett for third and Davis for second.
Ultimately, that pass for second, on the white-flag lap, would turn out to be the pass for the win. In the official rundown, Nixon was the winner, followed by Davis, Mullett, Troy Turnage and Cory Millard.

Landon Florian started on the pole and led all 30 circuits to snag his sixth win of the season in the EZ Auto of Newport News UCAR race.
Chris Hildebrand qualified on the outside pole and held down the runner-up spot throughout the contest. At the finish, he was 1.210 seconds — about six lengths — behind the winner. Sammy Gaita was third to the stripe, followed by Andy Graham.
Bill Eaker had an interesting journey to his fifth-place result. Running fourth, he and his right-front wheel and tire parted ways just after a restart at lap 12. His crew installed a new tire and sent him back into battle. Relegated to 16th, he steadily made his way through the field and passed Matt Morgan on lap 27 to nab his final finishing position.

In a caution-free 30-lapper for the Standard Welding Pro Sixes, Doug Warren fended off a stout challenge from rookie contender Steve Williams and notched his fourth win of the season.
Warren started on the pole, at 80.403 mph, and pulled ahead of Williams in Turn 4 on lap 1 to take the lead. On lap 3, Bobby Hall slipped past Williams for second. Eight laps later, Williams returned the favor, regaining the runner-up spot. The exchanges allowed Warren to build a five-length lead.
Little by little, Williams began to chip away at Warren’s margin. At lap 20, they emerged from slower traffic in bumper-to-bumper formation. Behind them, Casey Sipe, who started eighth, had made his way up to third and was rapidly closing ground.
Over the last 10 laps, Warren held Williams at bay and won by 0.188-second — a single car-length. Sipe was third, 0.606-second behind the winner. Hall was fourth and Rob Hughes completed the top five.
