Race Report
Saturday, August 20, 2011

HAMPTON, Va. (Aug. 20) — Continuing his march toward a third straight track championship, C.E. Falk picked up his 10th and 11th victories of the season in the Langley Federal Credit Union/Heritage Motor Co. 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.
The wins were Falk’s seventh and eighth in a row at Langley. He hasn’t tasted defeat at the historic .395-mile speedplant since finishing third in the front half of a twinbill on June 25.
Wes Falk outshined his older brother in qualifying for the first event, earning the pole position with a lap at 88.725 mph. C.E. Falk was second-quickest and lined up to his brother’s outside on the front row. Greg Edwards, Shayne Lockhart and Danny Edwards Jr. rounded out the top five on the 20-car grid.
Race #1: As the opening 50-lapper got under way, the Falks dueled door-to-door until they reached the fourth corner. Exiting the turn, Wes Falk gained the upper hand, leaving the lane open for Greg Edwards, who snagged the runner-up spot on lap 2.
On lap 8, C.E. Falk ducked underneath Greg Edwards in a bid to regain the second position. He completed the pass in Turn 2 on lap 9 and set off after his brother, who had fashioned a two-length advantage.
The first caution flag appeared on lap 11 when Dean Shiflett spun in Turn 2, collecting Renno Marchetti IV and Jeff Shiflett. As the field bunched for a restart, C.E. Falk broke out of line, opting to pull to the outside of the leader.
Back under green, C.E. Falk inched ahead of Wes Falk and led lap 11 by a few feet. Wes Falk rallied on lap 12 and nosed back out front, while C.E. Falk took the lead for good on lap 13. The two continued to battle until lap 15 when C.E. Falk cleared his brother off Turn 4.
Once in the lead, C.E. Falk set sail. By the halfway mark, his lead had grown to half a straightaway over Wes Falk, who was busy with a challenge from Greg Edwards. Casey Wyatt was fourth, a couple lengths behind the tussle for second, and Mark Wertz held down fifth.
On lap 32, Wes Falk suddenly dropped off the pace in Turn 1 and slowly made his way back to the pits. With his premature exit, the runner-up spot passed to Greg Edwards, who was nearly a straightaway behind the leader.
The second yellow flag waved on lap 36 for Duane Shreeves’ spin in Turn 2. For the ensuing restart, Wertz, Danny Edwards Jr., Brandon Gdovic, Doug Godsey, Rick Gdovic and Mitch Sarvis chose the outside lane.
As the race resumed, C.E. Falk cleared Wertz in Turn 2, leaving him to scuffle for second with Greg Edwards, who gained the clear-cut edge on lap 37, bringing Wyatt along with him. Meanwhile, the leader had pulled away by almost half a straightaway.
The last of the race’s three caution flags flew on lap 44 when Rick Gdovic spun off Turn 2, collecting Sarvis and Shreeves. Lining up for a dash to the checkers, Lockhart, Danny Edwards Jr., Wertz and Godsey headed to the high side.
Under green for the final time, Falk quickly dispensed with Lockhart, who also gave way to Greg Edwards and Wyatt before finding a place in line, in fourth.
At the finish, C.E. Falk was the winner by 0.902-second — about six lengths — over Greg Edwards. Wyatt was third, while Lockhart and Brandon Gdovic completed the top five. Wertz headed the second five, in sixth, followed by Terry Carroll, Godsey, Danny Edwards Jr. and Rick Gdovic.
Race #2: The starting lineup for the nightcap was determined by the finishing order of the first event, putting C.E. Falk and Greg Edwards on the front row.
As the second race got going, Falk and Edwards raced hard into Turn 1 and banged together, skittering up the track and leaving the inside lane wide open for Wyatt, who pounced on the opportunity and grabbed the lead.
With the field still struggling to sort itself out, trouble broke out in a big way in Turn 2 on the second lap. By the time the smoke cleared, nearly two-thirds of the 15 starters had been swept up in the melee. Among those involved were Greg Edwards, Wertz, Carroll, Danny Edwards Jr., Wes Falk and Rick Gdovic. Only Wes Falk and Danny Edwards Jr. were chased to the sidelines for good, though.
On the restart, Wyatt and Falk quickly cleared Brandon Gdovic, who had launched from the outside lane. Two laps later, Falk ducked underneath Wyatt in Turn 2 and motored into the top spot as they came around to complete lap 4. On lap 7, Gdovic followed Falk’s cue and bypassed Wyatt for second.
By the time the crossed flags were displayed, Falk had stretched his lead to almost a full straightaway over Gdovic, who was three lengths ahead of Wyatt. Behind the lead trio, Lockhart and Godsey battled for fourth.
With the laps winding down, Falk closed in on Greg Edwards, who was still plugging along after the early-race mishap. Rather than risk the ire of his rival, Falk followed Edwards to the finish, giving up a few car-lengths of his enormous margin.
At the checkers, Falk was the winner by 2.954 seconds — better than half a straightaway — over Brandon Gdovic. Wyatt was third, followed by Lockhart and Godsey. Wertz posted his second sixth-place run of the night, while Rick Gdovic, Chris Hopkins and Greg Edwards rounded out the lead-lap cars. Shreeves was 10th, a lap in arrears.
In Victory Lane after the second race, a subdued Falk accepted responsibility for the early tangle with Edwards: “It’s kinda hard to celebrate. I really wanted to race the 21 (Edwards) and I don’t know if it was really my fault or cold tires or cold racetrack, but I obviously slid up the hill, so, if his car got wrecked, it’s my fault. But, we had a great number 40 car again. That’s eight in a row for us, so I’m really happy for all the guys and stuff.”
In the Late Model standings, Falk now leads Edwards by 38 points, 740-702, nearly doubling the advantage he owned at the start of the night.

In the evening’s other featured events:

The KeesVacations.com Modifieds ran a pair of 30-lappers and points leader Shawn Balluzzo came away with his fourth and fifth wins of the season.
In the caution-strewn opener, Balluzzo started on the pole, at 86.041 mph, but had to fight his way from the back of the pack on two occasions after being caught up in incidents on laps 8 and 14.
While Balluzzo was having his struggles, Anthony Kincaid, the outside pole starter, set the pace for the first 26 circuits. Heading into the last 10 laps, though, Balluzzo moved back into the runner-up spot and was soon filling the leader’s mirror.
On lap 27, Balluzzo slipped under Kincaid off Turn 2 and completed the pass for the lead at the end of the backstretch. Just one lap later, he had already pulled off by half a straightaway, a margin he would maintain to the finish.
As the checkers waved, Balluzzo was the winner by 1.824 seconds over Kincaid. Joe Scarbrough was third to the line, followed by Todd VanGuilder and Mike Rudy.
The second race wasn’t nearly such an ordeal for Balluzzo. Starting on the pole, he jumped out front on the first lap and led all the way, staving off a mid-race challenge from Robbie Babb en route to the win.
At the finish, Balluzzo was the winner by 2.027 seconds — better than half a straightaway — over Babb. Chris Johnson was third, while Scarbrough and VanGuilder completed the top five.

Ritchie German and Randy Sample split a pair of 25-lappers for the Heritage Motor Co. Super Streets. German’s win in the opener was his fifth of the season, while Sample picked up win #4 in the nightcap.
German was the fast qualifier for Race #1, at 73.721 mph. After an inversion, he started on the outside of Row 2, turning the pole position over to Larry Venable.
As the first 25 got under way, Sean Calway got the drop on Venable and grabbed the lead. German moved past Venable on lap 3 to take over second.
German tailed Calway until lap 9 when he motored under the leader in Turn 1. The two went side-by-side until lap 10 when German gained the clear-cut advantage off Turn 4.
By the finish, German had opened a half-straightaway lead, winning by 1.882 seconds. Calway was second, followed by Jamie Sample, Ryan Nester and Chris Roberts.
In the second race, German looked to be on the way to completing the sweep as he led the first 21 laps from the pole. On lap 22, though, he and Calway tangled and spun in Turn 2, bringing out the second of the race’s three yellow flags.
As German and Calway retreated to the rear of the field, Randy Sample assumed the top spot. He led the rest of the way and won by 0.753-second — about three lengths — over John Pereira. Jamie Sample posted his second third-place finish of the night, followed by Roberts and German, who passed Nester on the white-flag lap to salvage fifth place.

In the 25-lap Larry King Law Super Truck feature, Curtis Hughes assumed the lead on the 23rd circuit and paced the final three laps for his first victory.
Tommy Nixon was the fast qualifier, at 73.450 mph. Following an inversion, he started on the outside of Row 3. Jonathan Mullett and Hughes made up the reconstituted front row.
Mullett led the first four laps before giving way to Chase McAdams, who paced laps 5-22. On lap 23, McAdams and Troy Turnage locked horns in Turn 2 and the leader went for a loop, prompting the last of six caution flags and elevating Hughes to the top spot.
On the final restart, Hughes manufactured a two-length advantage over Bill Wallace, who soon gave way to Mullett and Robbie Davis.
At the stripe, Hughes was the winner by 0.464-second over Mullett, while Davis came home in third. Buck Munger and Wallace were fourth and fifth, respectively, sliding across the finish line after an encounter with sixth-place Nixon off the last corner.

Chris Hildebrand rolled to his second straight win, and third of the season, in the 25-lap EZ Auto of Newport News UCAR race.
Hildebrand set the pace in time trials, qualifying at 72.084 mph, and started fourth after the inversion. Matt Morgan and Ben Zoellner made up the front row, while Sammy Gaita was on Hildebrand’s inside flank in Row 2.
Morgan led the opening lap, but gave way to Gaita on lap 2, bringing Zoellner with him. Bill Eaker and Hildebrand also tagged along, dropping Morgan to fifth.
On lap 7, Hildebrand picked off Eaker for third. He dispatched Zoellner for second on lap 9, then set his sights on Gaita, who was five lengths ahead.
The only caution flag flew on lap 19 for Andrew Graham’s spin in Turn 2.
Back under green, Hildebrand immediately went after the lead, going three-wide with Gaita and Eaker, who had restarted alongside the leader. As the trio returned to the flagstand, Hildebrand nosed ahead.
Over the closing circuits, Hildebrand steadily extended his margin. At the finish, he was the winner by 0.543-second over Eaker. Zoellner was third.
Gaita and Morgan were fourth and fifth, but both failed to clear the post-race inspection and were disqualified. Jon Largena and Michael Waters were fourth and fifth, respectively, in the official rundown.

Casey Sipe took the lead on lap 8 and held on for his third win of the year in the Standard Welding Pro Six feature, which ran one lap past the scheduled 30-lap distance, due to a late caution flag.
Doug Warren led the qualifying session, at 79.897 mph. He spun an “8” on the inversion wheel, though, dropping him to the outside of Row 4 and passing the pole to Bobby Hall.
Hall led laps 1-7 before Sipe found his way to the front. In the meantime, Warren, the points leader coming into the race, was struggling. He finally ground to a halt on lap 9, bringing out the third caution flag. The early exit left him with a 10th-place finish.
On the ensuing restart, Sipe and Anthony Perez quickly pulled ahead of Steve Williams, who occupied the outside lane. On lap 13, though, Williams slipped past Perez and closed on the leader.
With seven laps to go, Sipe and Williams were nose-to-tail. A major bobble in Turn 4 cost Williams dearly, however, as Sipe opened a four-length edge.
The final yellow flag appeared on lap 27. With caution laps counting, the field bunched for “green-white-checkered” finish, beginning on lap 30.
Under green for the final time, Sipe forged a two-length lead, then withstood Williams’ last-lap rally to win by 0.225-second — a single car-length. Perez was third, followed by Warren Smigo and Hall.
Coupled with Warren’s 10th-place outing, the victory catapulted Sipe into the points lead. He now enjoys a slim, four-point margin over Warren, 412-408.
