Carl's Racing Products Night
Race Report
Saturday, April 21, 2012

Defending track champ C.E. Falk notched a pair of victories as he swept the Carl's Racing Products Twin 50s for the EZ Auto in Newport News Late Model Stock Cars, the featured events of Saturday evening's NASCAR Whelen All-American Series program at Langley Speedway.
The starting lineup for the first race was determined by time trials and Greg Edwards backed up his opening night qualifying success by nabbing his second straight pole award, at 88.328 mph. Falk was second-fastest, 66-thousandths of a second off Edwards pace. Mark Wertz, Danny Edwards Jr. and Casey Wyatt filled spots three, four and five, respectively, on the 17-car grid.
As the first 50-lapper got under way, Edwards motored ahead of Falk to take the lead into Turn 1. Looking to cash in on the open inside lane, Wertz pulled underneath Falk in a bid for second. He cleared Falk on lap 3, but gave the spot right back on lap 4 as Falk switched lanes and charged past to his inside.
While Falk and Wertz dueled for the runner-up spot, Edwards widened his advantage. By the time Falk and Wertz sorted themselves out, the leader was up by half a straightaway. Over the next handful of circuits, Falk trimmed the margin, only to see Edwards pull away again.
Nearing the halfway point, Edwards encountered slower machines. He quickly dealt with the traffic, but still gave up some of his lead as Falk narrowed the gap to five lengths.
The first yellow flag appeared on lap 26 when Gary Weeks and Wes Falk spun in Turn 4. During the ensuing caution period, fourth-place Danny Edwards Jr. pulled into the pits with mechanical issues, retiring to a 15th-place finish.
As the field bunched for a restart, fifth-place Shayne Lockhart pulled out of line to try his luck on the outside of the leader. He was joined up top by Weeks and Wes Falk.
Back under green, Greg Edwards quickly cleared Lockhart. Heading into Turn 1, though, he found C.E. Falk to his inside. The two raced door-to-door down the backstretch with Falk edging ahead off the fourth corner.
On lap 27, Edwards battled back underneath Falk in Turn 4 and regained the lead in Turn 2 on lap 28. Three laps later, it was Falk's turn again as he drove under Edwards into Turn 1. He nosed out front on lap 32 and cleared Edwards on lap 33.
The second yellow flag flew on lap 34 when Wes Falk spun in the middle of Turns 3 and 4. Gathering for the restart, Lockhart made his way to the outside lane, once more, tailed by Duane Shreeves, Chris Hopkins and Wes Falk.
Before another lap was recorded, the last of the race's three caution flags waved for a multi-car mishap on the frontstretch. Weeks and Shreeves tangled to trigger the melee, which ended with Wes Falk's #41 machine perched atop Hopkins #99 car. The red flag was displayed as officials and safety crews went to work.
After the red flag was withdrawn, the field lined up for what would turn out to be the final restart. Wertz, in third place, gave up his spot in line and pulled alongside C.E. Falk.
As the race resumed, Falk and Edwards quickly dispensed with Wertz, determined to settle the victory between themselves. By lap 37, Falk had forged a two-length advantage.
Falk's margin held steady until the closing laps when he padded his lead a bit. At the finish, he was the winner by 0.572-second about three lengths over Edwards. Wertz was third to the line, followed by Lockhart and Wyatt.
Jeff Shiflett headed up the second five, in sixth, while Weeks, Kevin Cunningham, Shreeves and J.T. Jackson rounded out the top 10.
In Victory Lane after the race, Falk commented on what's shaping up to be a year-long battle with Greg Edwards: "It's pretty much two heavyweights. It's gonna be tough, but we're gonna give it our all. I've just gotta thank this whole 40 team. They gave me a great car. Can't say enough about the crew. We really worked hard to get here.
The lineup for the second race was determined by the finishing order of the first event, putting Falk and Edwards on the front row for the nightcap.
On the start, Falk and Edwards went side-by-side until they reached Turn 4. Exiting the corner, Falk gained the upper hand, while Edwards dropped into second, followed by Wertz, Wyatt and Lockhart. Meanwhile, deeper in the field, Danny Edwards Jr. was quickly wheeling his brother's backup car toward the point, cracking the top five on lap 8.
At lap 13, Falk enjoyed a two-length lead over Edwards and he stretched that margin to three lengths as they hit the backstretch. Wertz was two lengths behind Edwards, while a full straightaway separated the top three from fourth-place Wyatt and fifth-place Edwards Jr.
On lap 17, Danny Edwards Jr. climbed another rung on the leaderboard, bypassing Wyatt for fourth. And, at the front, Greg Edwards and Wertz closed in on Falk.
Just past halfway, slower traffic came into play and Falk was able to extend his lead to four lengths over Edwards, who had his hands full with Wertz. On lap 34, Wertz ducked underneath Edwards off Turn 4 and took over the runner-up spot in Turns 1 and 2 on lap 35.
Needing a little help to get himself into contention, Wertz got a boost in the closing laps as Falk eased past a couple lapped machines. Working lap 45, Wertz was within a car-length of the leader's bumper.
Shaking free of traffic, though, Falk dashed away and won by 0.508-second over Wertz. Greg Edwards and Danny Edwards Jr. were third and fourth, in that order, while Wyatt completed the top five.
Lockhart and Terry Carroll were sixth and seventh, respectively, the final drivers on the lead lap at the end of the caution-free run. Shreeves, Rick Gdovic and Hopkins were eighth, ninth and 10th, all a lap in arrears.
Back in Victory Lane, Falk noted Wertz's strong effort: It was a tough Twin 50s tonight. Mark, he had a heckuva race. I know he's been working hard and he's really going after it here and he's been here a long time. He made it tough for us at the end. We used every inch of Hoosier we had.
Turning his attention to next Thursday's Denny Hamlin Short Track Showdown at Richmond International Raceway, Falk was upbeat: Momentum now. It's all here and it's all with the 40 car. We've got Carl's Racing Products blasted all over that thing, so, hopefully, we make it look good for SPEED next week. Tune in next Thursday night and, hopefully, we'll put it in Victory Lane at RIR.

In the evening's other feature events:

In a caution-free 25-lapper for the Larry King Law Super Trucks, Tommy Nixon moved out front on the 22nd circuit and held on for his first win of the young season.
Troy Turnage set the fast time in qualifying for the event, at 74.419 mph. He dialed a "4" on the inversion wheel, though, bumping him to the outside of Row 2. Chase McAdams assumed the pole position, flanked by Nixon, while Robbie Davis lined up in the third spot.
As the race got going, McAdams nosed ahead of Nixon at the end of lap 1 and cleared him off Turn 2 on the second circuit. Davis tagged along, taking over second, followed by Turnage, while Nixon dropped to fourth.
Riding Davis tailgate, Turnage was in contention until lap 7 when he did a half-spin in the middle of Turns 1 and 2. The caution flag remained hidden and Turnage got himself squared away, but not before falling to 10th in the running order.
At the front, Davis closed in on McAdams and pounced when the leader drifted wide in Turn 4 on lap 12. Davis edged out front on lap 13, but a slower truck blocked his path and allowed McAdams to retake the lead on lap 14. All the while, third-place Nixon had his sights set on the lead duo.
On lap 15, Davis eased back ahead of McAdams, gaining the clear-cut advantage off Turn 2 on lap 16. A lap later, Nixon also overtook McAdams and moved into second.
Closing in on the leader, Nixon drove underneath Davis in Turn 3 on lap 21 and pulled out front out of Turn 2 on lap 22.
At the checkers, Nixon was the winner by 0.194-second a single truck-length over Davis. McAdams was third, while Turnage recovered from his early-race mishap to take fourth and Chris Munger was fifth.

Sammy Gaita took the lead on lap 3, then held off Tim Wilson's furious late-race rally to capture his first win in the 25-lap SavitaPets.com UCAR feature.
Bill Eaker was the fast qualifier for the race, at 72.315 mph. After an inversion of the top four, though, he ceded the pole to Kevin Morgan. Eric Schaffer lined up alongside Morgan, while Gaita and Eaker occupied Row 2.
As the event got under way, Morgan jumped into the lead, while Gaita and Schaffer tussled for second. Gaita got the better of that faceoff on lap 2, then went after Morgan, picking up the lead in Turn 4 on lap 3. A lap later, the only caution flag appeared when Schaffer lost a wheel and looped his machine in the middle of Turns 1 and 2.
Lining up for the restart, Wilson gave up the third spot in line and pulled to the outside of Gaita. He was joined in the outer lane by Jesse Jones, Michael Joyner, Richard Ellis and Rodney Davis.
Back under green, Gaita and Morgan shot ahead of Wilson. Eaker tagged along and swiped third, but Wilson moved over to the inside groove and retook the position. On lap 8, Wilson grabbed second from Morgan and set off after Gaita, who was nearly half a straightaway ahead.
Bit by bit, Wilson chipped away at Gaita's lead. By the time the white flag appeared, he had nearly erased the entire gap. Continuing to close ground, Wilson dipped low as the field sped off Turn 4 for the final time.
Wilson managed to work a bumper to the inside of Gaita, but ran out of time as Gaita held on to win by 0.125-second less than a car-length. Eaker trailed the lead twosome to the line, in third, followed by Jon Largena and Jones.

Casey Sipe took advantage of Landon Florian's late-race misfortune and posted a win in the 30-lap Standard Welding Pro Six race.
Steve Williams posted the fastest lap in time trials, at 80.539 mph. Following an inversion, though, he started fifth, while David Butler moved to the pole.
As the green flag dropped, Butler's front-row mate, Bobby Hall, bolted into the lead. Anthony Perez emerged in second, followed by Florian, Williams and Butler. Sipe, who started eighth, took over sixth.
With Hall showing the way, Florian hounded Perez for the runner-up spot. He captured the position on lap 19 and brought Sipe with him, to third.
Only two lengths down to the leader, Florian quickly gobbled up the ground and snagged the top spot on lap 21, passing Hall on the backstretch. Again, Sipe was right in his tire tracks, passing Hall for second off Turn 4.
The first caution flag waved on lap 24 when Perez and Williams spun in Turn 4. Lining up for the restart, third-place Hall opted for the outside lane, hoping to retake the lead.
Back under green, Florian and Sipe made short work of Hall, who also surrendered the third spot to Nelson Moody before finding a place in line.
The second, and final, caution flag appeared on lap 28 when Matt Mullins spun in Turn 4, setting the stage for a three-lap sprint to the finish.
On the last restart, Florian appeared to miss a shift and failed to come up to speed immediately. As he tumbled down the running order, Sipe seized the opportunity and motored away from the pack.
At the checkers, Sipe was the winner by 1.009 seconds about four lengths over Moody. Hall was third to the stripe, while Williams and J.B. Sipe completed the top five. Florian, who looked poised to pick up a win in only his second Pro Six start, ended up eighth in the final rundown.

In the evening's final feature, a 40-lapper for the Cook's Moving Service Enduros, Richard Quinn drew the pole and never looked back, scoring a dominating win in the division's season opener.
By the finish, Quinn had put a lap on everyone except second-place Alex Floroff. His margin of victory over Floroff was about three-quarters of a lap.
Larry Drommerhausen came home in third, a lap down, followed by Bobby Larkin and Derrick Boggess.
