Hampton Va. --

NASCAR Whelen All-American Series
at Langley Speedway - Hampton, VA
Preview: Mod Madness set to overtake Langley this Saturday

Thursday, October 13, 2011

HAMPTON, Va. The season's longest and richest open-wheel feature tops a six-race slate this Saturday, Oct. 15, when Langley Speedway plays host to Mid-Atlantic Modified Madness presented by the Racing For Hope Foundation. The evening's headliner will be a 100-lap/$5,000-to-win event for the KeesVacations.com Modifieds.
Along with the Mod main event, Saturday's lineup includes: Pepsi Grand Stocks (40 laps); Heritage Motor Co. Super Streets (40 laps); Larry King Law Super Trucks (25 laps); Standard Welding Pro Sixes (30 laps); and, Enduros (50 laps).
Front gates open and afternoon practice begins at 2 p.m. A drivers meeting is scheduled for 4:15, followed by time trials, starting at 4:30. Pre-race activities get under way at 6:55, while the first feature event goes green shortly after 7.
Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children, 6-12. Military personnel (active-duty or retired) and seniors (60+) receive a $2 discount off the regular adult ticket price. “Little Race Fans” (under 6) are admitted free when accompanied by an adult. Family Packs, which include two adult and two kids tickets, are $25 — a savings of $5.
Advance tickets may be purchased in the Speedway office during normal business hours or through the track’s Web site — <www.langley-speedway.com>.

A 26-car starting field is slated to take the green flag in Saturday's Mod Madness 100. The top 20 will earn their positions through time trials. Positions 21-26 on the grid will be filled in a "Last Chance" qualifying race.
• • •
At 100 laps in distance, Saturday's Modified feature represents something of a foray into uncharted territory. The division's 2011 schedule at Langley was made up of 50-lap events and, late in the season, even shorter "Twin" races. To be successful in this weekend's race, drivers will have to strike a balance between speed and conserving tires and equipment for the closing circuits.

Modified division race winners at Langley in 2011 include: Shawn Balluzzo (7), Cameron Patrick (4), Robbie Babb (2), Anthony Kincaid (2), Mike Rudy (2) and Mark Slye (2).
As the runner-up to Balluzzo in the title chase, Chris Johnson wouldn't exactly qualify as a dark horse candidate to end up in Victory Lane on Saturday, even though he was winless in the just-completed Langley points campaign. He could have an edge, though, if he picks up a few tips from his dad, longtime Late Model standout Eddie Johnson. The senior Johnson is a widely-acknowledged master in longer events, biding his time, then roaring into contention at the finish.
• • •
Langley Speedway will hold an all-day Modified practice session on Friday, Oct. 14, from 9 a.m. 'til 4 p.m. Teams will have to clear out at 4 as Hampton Roads Kart Club members begin to arrive for a special "Friday Night Under The Lights" meet.

The Racing For Hope Foundation, the presenting sponsor for this Saturday's Mid-Atlantic Modified Madness program, was founded this year and is based in Norfolk, Va. The organization works with the local racing community to promote awareness of pediatric cancer and to raise funds for medical research and to provide assistance to young cancer patients and their families. To learn more, visit the group's Web site at <www.RacingForHopeFoundation.org>.

In the Grand Stock division, Ricky Derrick holds a 16-point lead over Mark Claar in the battle for the '11 title, 432-416. Claar swept Twin 20s on Oct. 1, but only gained four points on Derrick, who was the runner-up in both races. Three races remain on this season's Grand Stock schedule, including Twin 20s on Oct. 22.
• • •
Ritchie German owns a 40-point edge in the current Super Street standings. After his sixth win on Oct. 1, though, it was revealed that work commitments would keep him away from the season's final two races. With that, attention turned to the second- and third-place drivers, Ryan Nester and Jamie Sample. Nester's margin over Sample is only 12 points, 440-428.
• • •
The Super Trucks complete their 2011 points season with this Saturday's 25-lap race. Tommy Nixon enters the finale with a 24-point lead over defending champ Robbie Davis, 582-558. With the tiebreaker in hand, Nixon can claim the championship by finishing 13th or better this weekend.
• • •
The Pro Sixes also finish up their points campaign in Saturday's 30-lapper. Doug Warren is six points ahead of Casey Sipe in the standings, 508-502. Warren owns the tiebreaker edge and can clinch the title with a fourth-place outing.
• • •
Idled by inclement weather since mid-July, the Enduros return to action this Saturday. Mike Ganoe holds a slim two-point lead over Danny Harrell in the points rundown, 196-194.

After playing second fiddle to Philip Morris in this season's NASCAR Whelen All-American Series state and national championship battles, Lee Pulliam grabbed the spotlight in a big way as he won last Sunday's Virginia Is For Racing Lovers 300 Late Model Stock Car race at Martinsville Speedway.
Pulliam muscled past Matt McCall on the first lap of the "green-white-checkered" dash that closed the event and led the way to the finish. Brandon Butler was the runner-up, while a peeved McCall ended up fifth.
Langley regular Greg Edwards started shotgun on the 42-car grid and came home with an impressive seventh-place finish. Doug Godsey started and finished 14th. Morris was the pole-sitter, but struggled to a 22nd-place result. Danny Edwards Jr. and Langley Late Model champ C.E. Falk were early retirees from the event, winding up 34th and 38th, respectively.
The day's feature event was slowed by 17 yellow flags, which consumed 60 laps. To accommodate the race-ending sprint to the checkers, the event ran eight laps past the scheduled 200-lap distance.

Six track titles will be decided on Oct. 22 when Langley Speedway puts the wraps on the 2011 points season with Waypoint Apartments "Championship Saturday."
