NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour Statistical Advance: Langley

Analyzing The Courtyard By Marriott/Pepsi 150 At Langley Speedway

 

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (April 8, 2014) – The NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour will return to the Commonwealth of Virginia for the second week in a row to contest the Courtyard by Marriott/Pepsi 150 at Langley Speedway on Saturday, April 12. Below is a statistical look at the performance of selected drivers at the Hampton, Va., track:

 

Courtyard by Marriott/Pepsi 150 Setup:

·         Each of the previous four NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour races at Langley Speedway have seen a different driver reach Victory Lane.

·         Points leader Andy Seuss has won two of the season’s first three events. The 2011 Langley victor, Seuss has won five of the last seven NWSMT races dating back to the end of the 2013 season.

·         Langley is one of just two tracks on the 2014 schedule that four-time champion George Brunnhoelzl III has yet to register a win at. He also enters this week with the second-longest winless drought of his career.

·         There will be two events at Langley this season for the first time since the NWSMT began racing there in 2010.

 

At Langley Speedway:

History

·         Originally a .8-mile horse track, the grounds became an auto racing facility in 1950 and cut the distance of the dirt racing surface to .396 miles. It was converted to asphalt in 1968, and was most recently repaved prior to the 2013 season.

·         The track held nine NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races from 1964-70, 14 NASCAR Nationwide Series events from 1982-88, and has played host to the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East each year since 2011.

·         The first NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour race at South Boston was contested on Sept. 4, 2010 and was won by Tim Brown.

 

Notebook

·         There has been a different winner in each of the four previous NWSMT races at Langley.

·         As with race wins, each of the four prior Langley events has produced different Coors Light Pole Award winners.

·         Jason Myers, Andy Seuss, John Smith and Brown are the only drivers to compete in all four previous NWSMT events at Langley. Myers and Seuss are entered for this week’s race.

·         There has yet to be a race won wire-to-wire at Langley.

·         Kyle Ebersole was the youngest Langley race winner at 20 years, 10 months, nine days.

·         Brown was the oldest Langley victor at 39 years, one month, 29 days.
