Hampton Va. --

NASCAR Whelen All-American Series
at Langley Speedway - Hampton, VA
Saint Leo University Night
Saturday, June 9, 2012

C.E. Falk posted his fourth and fifth wins of the season, sweeping the Saint Leo University 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 lineup for the first race was determined in late afternoon time trials and Greg Edwards topped the charts, at 88.675 mph. Wes Falk was second-quickest, followed by Mark Wertz and C.E. Falk. Less than a tenth of a second separated the top four qualifiers. Shayne Lockhart rounded out the top five on the 16-car grid.
As the opening event got under way, Edwards bolted into the lead, leaving Wes Falk to contend with Wertz, who snagged the runner-up spot. Behind them, C.E. Falk dueled with Lockhart for fourth. Lockhart eventually won that battle.
Edwards had things his way in the early going, driving off by nearly half a straightaway as various tussles were waged in his mirror.
On lap 7, Wes Falk went after Wertz for second. He nosed ahead at the end of lap 9 and cleared Wertz on lap 10, bringing Lockhart and C.E. Falk along with him. For a few laps, Wes Falk was able to close ground on the leader, only to see Edwards extend his margin as he prepared to confront slower traffic.
C.E. Falk took a step toward the front on lap 22 when he slipped around Lockhart for third. Ahead, Edwards was almost free of the slower machines and his lead was mostly intact.
The complexion of the race took a drastic swing on lap 27 when Edwards suddenly fell off the pace. Wes Falk flashed past to take the lead on lap 28. On the next circuit, Edwards looped his machine in Turn 2 to bring out the only caution flag. He later reported that his right-rear wheel had worked its way loose.
Preparing for a restart, the Falk brothers led the way. Lockhart gave up his third spot in line to launch from the outside lane. He was joined up top by Danny Edwards Jr., Eddie Johnson, Jeff Shiflett and Greg Edwards.
Back under green, Wes Falk pulled ahead of Lockhart on the backstretch. C.E. Falk took second, while Lockhart settled back into third. Deeper in the field, Casey Wyatt bypassed Danny Edwards Jr. to crack the top five.
Working lap 33, Wes Falk was up by more than two lengths on his brother and Lockhart, who were nose-to-tail for second. Behind them, Greg Edwards had emerged in sixth place and was beginning to charge back toward the front.
Edwards picked off Wyatt for fifth on lap 37 and he grabbed fourth from Wertz on lap 41. With Edwards on the warpath, things began to tighten up at the head of the field.
On lap 43, C.E. Falk drove underneath Wes Falk at the end of the front straightaway. The two went side-by-side until they reached Turn 4. Exiting the corner, C.E. Falk gained the clear-cut edge. The brief scuffle also allowed Lockhart and Edwards to join the Falks in a four-car lead pack.
Edwards overtook Lockhart for third on lap 45. As he pulled ahead, three lengths separated him from second-place Wes Falk. Within a couple circuits, though, he had gobbled up that deficit.
While C.E. Falk widened his lead, Greg Edwards took a run at Wes Falk on lap 48, ducking low in Turn 2. He came up empty that time, but didn't go away, renewing the assault as the white flag went in the air.
At the finish, C.E. Falk was the winner by 0.931-second about five lengths over Edwards, who swiped second from Wes Falk on the last lap. Lockhart tailed the lead trio to the line, in fourth, followed by Wertz.
Wyatt headed the second five, in sixth, while Danny Edwards Jr., Duane Shreeves, Shiflett and Terry Carroll completed the top 10. Bruce Livingston and J.T. Jackson were 11th and 12th, respectively, also on the lead lap.
In Victory Lane after the race, Falk sounded an ominous note as he looked forward to the second race: I don't know. I think we've got a broken shock mount or something cause this thing was just wobbling really bad. So, hopefully, we'll fix that and give the 97 (Edwards) a run for his money. He was good and I'm glad he came back to run second. They've had terrible luck, but we'll keep benefiting from it.
The lineup for the second 50-lapper was determined by the finish of the first, putting C.E. Falk and Edwards on the front row.
As the nightcap began, Falk and Edwards battled door-to-door with Falk nosing ahead to lead lap 1. Before their duel could play out, the first caution flag waved for Bruce Livingston's spin in Turn 2.
Lining up for the restart, third-place Wes Falk headed to the outside lane, joined by Wyatt, Danny Edwards Jr., Carroll and Shiflett.
Back under way, C.E. Falk and Greg Edwards quickly cleared Wes Falk, leaving him to contend with Lockhart, who snagged third and opened the door for Wertz, who advanced to fourth. The shuffle allowed the lead duo to pull away by six lengths.
On lap 9, Edwards went after C.E. Falk for the top spot, ducking to the inside off Turn 2 and taking the position at the end of the back straightaway. Falk tried to return the favor at the start of lap 12, but Edwards fended him off. Meanwhile, third-place Lockhart was closing in.
By lap 18, Edwards had extended his margin to five car-lengths and looked to be easing away. Nearing the halfway mark, though, Falk started to narrow the gap. Moving in, little by little, he chopped Edwards advantage to a single car-length by lap 33. On lap 34, though, Falk slid off Turn 4 and the bobble allowed Edwards to regain a four-length edge.
Edwards lead disappeared entirely on lap 37 when Jackson spun in the middle of Turns 1 and 2 to bring out the second, and final, yellow flag. Bunching for the restart, Wertz and Wes Falk, the fourth- and fifth-place runners, headed to the outside lane.
Back under green, C.E. Falk forced a fender underneath Greg Edwards as they sped into Turn 1. He regained the lead at the stripe and cleared Edwards in Turn 1 on lap 38.
Spotting the opening left by the new leader, Lockhart rushed to fill the void to the inside of Edwards, initiating a side-by-side duel that lasted until lap 41. Edwards came out on top, but, by then, Falk had driven off by almost half a straightaway.
Over the closing circuits, Edwards was able to close in a bit, but it wasn't nearly enough as Falk won by 0.589-second about three lengths. Lockhart was third to the checkers, followed by Wertz and Wyatt.
Wes Falk was sixth in the final rundown, while Danny Edwards Jr., Carroll and Shiflett were eighth through ninth, in that order. Shreeves was 10th, the final driver to complete the entire distance.
Returning to the winner's circle, Falk offered a unique description of the race-winning pass: I love restarts. It's attack, attack, attack for me. So, going down there, driving into Turn 1, I kinda let Jesus take the wheel there.
The Late Models will be off the next three weekends. The KeesVacations.com Modifieds take center stage on June 16 and 29, while the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East will be in town on June 23 for the Visit Hampton 175. The Late Models return to action on Saturday, July 7.

In the evening's other feature events:

John Pereira and Ritchie German split the victories in Twin 20s for the Heritage Motor Co. Super Streets. The wins were the first of the season for both drivers as Renno Marchetti IV's three-race unbeaten streak came to a halt.
German, who had to abandon a likely championship campaign in 2011 due to work commitments, was the fast qualifier for the first race, which was also his first race of the new season, at 74.481 mph. He dialed up a "6" on the inversion wheel, though, bumping him to the outside of Row 3.
In the reconstituted lineup, Dale Parro was the pole-sitter, flanked by Pereira. Larry Venable and Marchetti were in Row 2, while German share Row 3 with Ryan Nester.
As the opener got going, Parro jumped into the lead. His stay atop the leaderboard was short-lived, however, as Pereira motored past on the backstretch on lap 2. Behind them, Marchetti and German closed in.
Marchetti snatched the runner-up spot from Parro on lap 7, while German followed his cue a couple laps later. The exchange of positions allowed Pereira to open a three-length lead, but Marchetti began to narrow the gap.
On lap 14, Pereira and Marchetti made contact in Turn 4. Pereira held onto the top spot, but the brief skirmish allowed German to join the lead battle. Meanwhile, Nester grabbed fourth from Parro on lap 15.
The lead duo got together again on lap 17. While Pereira hung on, German was now solidly in the mix. German's presence may have been a blessing for Pereira as Marchetti had to worry about defending the second spot as much as taking the lead.
At the finish, Pereira was the winner by 0.432-second about two lengths over German, who edged ahead of Marchetti on lap 19. Marchetti was third, followed by Nester and Parro.
By virtue of his win in the first race, Pereira started the second one from the pole. German lined up on the outside pole.
The second 20-lapper got off to a rough start when Parro spun at the end of the backstretch to bring out what would turn out to be the only caution flag. He retreated to the back of the pack as the field prepared for a complete restart.
Finally under way, German gained a half-length lead at the end of lap 1. Pereira rallied to lead laps 2 and 3, but gave way to Marchetti on lap 4. German and Nester tagged along with Marchetti and took over second and third.
By lap 7, Marchetti had fashioned a three-length lead over the German/Nester tandem. Three laps later, though, he suddenly dropped off the pace and German pounced, taking command of the event. Though traveling at a reduced speed, Marchetti remained on the track and ended up eighth, two laps down at the end.
At the front, German was clinging to a slim edge over Nester when the runner-up skittered loose off Turn 4 on lap 17. The slip allowed German to pull away by four lengths.
Nester, the defending division champ, tried to rally in the closing circuits, but the deficit was too much to overcome as German won by 0.429-second. Pereira was third, followed by Sean Calway and Venable

Piloting a backup truck, Robbie Davis took the lead off the final corner and scored his fourth win, and third in a row, in the 25-lap Larry King Law Super Truck feature.
Troy Turnage started from the pole, at 74.650 mph. Davis, meanwhile, had engine problems on his potent #17 machine in practice, but hopped in the #99 truck and qualified second. Tommy Nixon, Chase McAdams and Brad Adams completed the top five on the 12-truck grid.
As the green flag fell, Turnage bolted into the lead, while Nixon moved up to challenge Davis for second, taking the spot as they rounded Turns 3 and 4 for the first time. Within the first seven circuits, the front three had already put nearly half a straightaway between themselves and fourth-place Adams.
On lap 14, Davis slipped past Nixon at the end of the frontstretch, only to see Nixon return the favor on the backstretch. With his pursuers staging their own private duel, Turnage widened his lead to four lengths.
Davis made another charge at Nixon on lap 19 and swiped the runner-up position at the end of the backstretch. Nixon tried to cross back over to Davis inside on the frontstretch, but his path was blocked by a slower truck, forcing him back in line.
With a firm grasp on second, Davis set off after Turnage, who was four lengths ahead. By lap 22, he had erased that margin and was parked on the leader's tailgate.
Davis began his winning pass in Turn 1 on the white-flag lap, driving underneath Turnage. The two were side-by-side for the final lap with Davis eking out a half-length victory at the checkers. Officially, the margin of victory was a scant 92-thousandths of a second. Nixon was third, followed by McAdams and Adams.

Casey Sipe started on the pole, at 81.081 mph, and sailed to his second win of the season in the 30-lap Standard Welding Pro Six race, leading flag-to-flag.
Landon Florian shared the front row with Sipe and held down the runner-up spot throughout the contest. After falling nearly half a straightaway behind in the first 10 circuits, he began to nibble away at Sipe's lead.
At lap 27, with the leader in traffic, Florian pulled to within three car-lengths. Sipe broke free of the slower machines, though, and rolled on to the win.
At the checkers, Sipe was the winner by 1.005 seconds about five lengths over Florian. Steve Williams was third, while Bobby Hall and J.B. Sipe rounded out the top five.

In a 20-lapper for the Rhonnda Claiborne, Realtor HRKC Pro Winged Champ Karts, Charlie-Ray Lorah started on the pole, at 60.063 mph, and led all the way for his third win.
Jake Harberts and Aaron Leach provided Lorah with a drafting boost in the early going. When Leach dropped back, Matthew Dail moved up to take his place in the lead trio.
The front-runners got a little undisciplined on lap 11 when Harberts and Dail broke ranks to split a slower kart on the backstretch. Dail came away from the exchange in second, while the fourth- and fifth-place runners, Matthew and Aaron Leach, closed on the top three.
Coming to the finish, Lorah was afforded a little breathing room (as such things are measured in the Champ Kart series) when Harberts shuffled past Dail for second.
At the stripe, Lorah was the winner by 0.132-second a kart-length over Harberts. Dail was third, followed by Matthew Leach and Daniel Millard

Only a few car-lengths from going a lap down, with four to go, Alex Floroff came away with an unlikely second straight win in the 40-lap Cook's Moving Service Enduro race.
Two-time winner Richard Quinn started on the pole and set a blazing pace for the first 35 laps, extending his lead to over three-quarters of a lap.
On lap 36, though, Quinn was collected in a wreck in Turn 2 and lost the lead to Floroff before he could get his machine righted. It was of little consequence, since Quinn's car was too damaged to continue and he retired to an 11th-place finish.
With Quinn on the sidelines, the race belonged to Floroff and he led the rest of the way. Don Masingo was the runner-up, while Rodney Davis, Larry Drommerhausen and Bill Eaker rounded out the top five.
