NASCAR Whelen All-American Series
at Langley Speedway - Hampton, VA
Preview: Late Model 150 divided into Twin 75s this Saturday
Wednesday, August 22, 2012

HAMPTON, Va. (Aug. 22) Instead of the originally-scheduled 150-lapper, Langley Speedway's EZ Auto in Newport News Late Model Stock Cars will run Twin 75s this Saturday, Aug. 25, as the track continues its 2012 NASCAR Whelen All-American Series campaign with Sysco/Eagle 97.3 FM Night.
With Saturday's feature being split into two separate races, drivers who race exclusively at Langley will now have a chance to reach 18 starts for the season, helping them to maximize their NASCAR points totals. The sanctioning body bases its state and national standings on each driver's top 18 finishes. To date, weather woes have claimed four Langley Late Model races.
In addition to the Late Model Twins, this weekend's huge nine-race lineup includes: Cycle City Corp. INEX Legends (Twin 20s); Pepsi Grand Stocks (40 laps); Larry King Law Super Trucks (25 laps); Standard Welding Pro Sixes (30 laps); Xtreme Mechanical Service INEX Bandoleros (20 laps); and, Rhonnda Claiborne, Realtor HRKC Pro Winged Champ Karts (20 laps).
Front gates open and afternoon practice rounds get under way at 2 p.m. A drivers meeting is slated for 4:15, followed by time trials at 4:30. To accommodate the crowded feature schedule, the INEX Bandolero race goes green at 6:40. Regular pre-race ceremonies begin at 6:55, while the Champ Karters hit the track 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>.

The "Stuff the Bus" drive wraps up this Saturday. Fans are encouraged to fill the track's "Boogity-Boogity-Boogity" hot rod school bus with backpacks and other school supplies. Donated items will be distributed to children in Hampton, Newport News and Appalachia.

Despite his disqualification from the second of last Saturday's Late Model Twins at Langley, C.E. Falk jumped from fourth to third in the standings. Northeastern Modified pilot Ryan Preece is fourth, only one behind Falk, while Keith Rocco is fifth, just one in arrears to Preece.
