NASCAR Dodge Weekly Series at Langley Speedway

In 2005, Late Model driver Mark Wertz was shut out of Langley Speedway’s Victory Lane until Sept. 17 — the next-to-last points race of the year. This time around, he won’t be sweating out a down-to-the-wire quest for a win.
Capitalizing on Greg Edwards’ misfortune, Wertz took the lead with six laps to go and held on to win the Wolftrap Motorsports 75 for the Crossroads Fuel Service/Sunoco Dealers Late Models as Langley kicked off its 2006 NASCAR Dodge Weekly Series season on Saturday evening.
Extremely fast in preseason testing, Edwards backed up those results by claiming the pole for Saturday’s event. He qualified at 87.475 mph, breaking the division record that he set last April (87.015 mph). Wertz was second-quickest and lined up to the outside of Edwards on the front row. Danny Edwards, Greg’s brother, and Anthony Warren made up Row 2.
As the race got under way, Greg Edwards jumped into the lead, motoring ahead of Wertz off Turn 2 on the initial lap. Wertz, the ‘03 and ‘04 track champion, settled into second, followed by Danny Edwards. Casey Wyatt, who started fifth, grabbed the fourth spot from Warren. On lap 3, Jeff Shiflett ducked under Warren in a bid for fifth place, picking up the position on lap 4.
The first yellow flag flew on the next circuit as Chris Munger spun between Turns 1 and 2. During the ensuing caution period, Wyatt pulled into the pits with rear end troubles, giving up fourth place to Shiflett.
In all, the first 46 laps of the race were punctuated by seven caution flags as the field struggled to find its rhythm. At the front, meanwhile, Greg Edwards had no problem locating his groove as he managed to keep Wertz and Danny Edwards at arm’s length.
Behind them, Warren busily worked to regain fourth place from Shiflett. He slipped past on lap 31, only to see the move negated by a caution flag. He finally reclaimed the position on lap 35, bringing Gary Weeks along with him and dropping Shiflett to sixth.
After the rocky beginning, the drivers settled down and the final 30 circuits were caution-free.
On what would turn out to be the last restart, Greg Edwards and Wertz broke from the pack in nose-to-tail formation. In their mirrors, Shiflett retook fifth from Weeks on lap 49.
As the laps clicked off, Greg Edwards began to ease away from Wertz, who was feeling pressure from Danny Edwards. At lap 65, Greg Edwards was up by three car-lengths and free of slower traffic.
Greg Edwards’ stroll to the checkers came to an abrupt end on lap 70, however, as he suddenly dropped off the pace in Turn 1. As Wertz shot past and into the lead, Edwards slowly made his way back around to the pits, his engine steaming, and retired to a 10th-place finish.
While Greg Edwards may have been relegated to the sidelines, Wertz had his hands full with Danny Edwards, who was hounding him for his newly-acquired spot atop the leaderboard.
Danny Edwards’ best opportunity to mount a challenge came on the last lap as he poked a fender to the inside of Wertz off the second corner. As they reached Turn 3, Wertz still held a slight advantage and, rather than risk taking them both out, Danny Edwards dropped back in line and tailed the leader to the finish.
At the stripe, Wertz was the winner by 0.151-second — about a car-length — over Danny Edwards. Warren, making his debut in James Long’s #21 Chevy, came home third, while Shiflett and Weeks rounded out the top five.
Shawn Balluzzo recovered from a pair of mid-race spins to take sixth, followed by Aaron Adams and J.J. Jensen, the final drivers to complete the entire distance. Billy Fisher was ninth, a lap down to the leaders.
In Victory Lane after the race, Wertz began his remarks by offering praise for the second-place finisher: “Danny Edwards is one class act. He could have got me there at the end. The middle part of the race, we were riding and saving something there for the end. I told them, with 10 to go, I said, ‘I think Greg’s got us.’ I was starting to get a little loose off, I was really having to baby the gas and I seen that smoke start pouring out and I said, ‘Well, maybe something’ll come out of this after all.’ But, Danny allowed me to get here in one piece. He coulda got me, but he didn’t. He’s a class act.”
Runner-up Danny Edwards commented on his evening’s efforts and the last-lap run at Wertz: “We had a decent run. We were just a little bit slow getting started. It’d take us a few laps for things to get turning good. Thought we had him (Wertz) there on the last lap. But, y’know, it was the last lap and he was doing what he had to do and he put a pretty big block on me down there on the backstretch, but that was for the win, so can’t expect no less than that.”
After struggling just to maintain a spot in the top five, third-place Warren was pleased to come away with a podium finish, noting, “I don’t think I had but about a fourth- or fifth-place car. I’m not sure what happened to Greg. I think he had the class of the field ‘til right up there near the end. The car was pretty decent. We just couldn’t keep the forward bite under it long enough.”

In the evening’s other feature events:

Launching the defense of his 2005 division title, Dean Shiflett began the new season on an auspicious note, rolling to the win in the 40-lap Super 8 Motels/Dunkum’s Machine Shop Grand Stock feature.
In time trials, Shiflett shattered his own Grand Stock qualifying mark (77.027 mph), clocking in at 77.548 mph. Ultimately, though, that wasn’t good enough for the pole as, later in the session, Ricky Derrick turned a lap at 77.896 mph.
As the race began, Derrick pulled into the lead, leaving Shiflett locked in a side-by-side duel with David Gray, who started third. Gray took the second position and held it until Shiflett battled back on lap 5. The exchange allowed Derrick to pull away by four car-lengths.
In only three laps, Shiflett had tracked down Derrick. On the ninth circuit, he powered under Derrick off Turn 2, nosed into the lead at the start/finish line and cleared Derrick’s machine in Turn 1 on lap 10.
The first yellow flag was displayed on lap 12 when Brandon Ray’s power steering failed, sending up a thick cloud of smoke. During the caution period, the lights in Turns 1 and 2 blinked off, precipitating the third such delay of the night. Reportedly, anomalous power surges in the area were at fault.
Coming back to the green flag, Derrick drove hard to the inside of Shiflett, trying to recapture the lead. Shiflett fended him off, though, and set sail. At the halfway mark, his margin had swelled to nearly half a straightaway.
Caution flags at laps 27 and 29 bunched the field. Following the third yellow, officials began counting caution laps. The final restart came at lap 36.
Under green for the last time, Shiflett opened a lead of almost two lengths as the field exited Turn 2. By the finish, he had increased his advantage to three lengths, winning by 0.595-second over Derrick. Gray was third, followed by George VanGuilder and Robert Ellis.

While the lighting situation in Turns 1 and 2 was an annoyance for most, it turned out to be a godsend for Jason Palmore, who notched a victory in the 25-lap B&C Seafood Modified race.
Palmore started on the pole, at 84.729 mph, and grabbed the lead on the initial lap, darting ahead of his front row partner, Mark Claar, into Turn 1. Claar tried to cut back to the inside of Palmore off Turn 2, but only succeeded in opening the outside lane for Buddy Emory, who drew alongside.
While Palmore drove away, Claar and Emory went door-to-door with Emory gaining the clear-cut edge on lap 5.
By lap 13, Emory had chased down Palmore and he ducked to the leader’s inside off Turn 4. Palmore was ahead at the flagstand, but Emory completed the pass for the lead in Turn 1 on lap 14.
As they were heading off the second corner and down the backstretch, however, the lights in Turns 1 and 2 suddenly went dark, prompting the race’s only caution flag. Since Palmore had led the last completed lap (13), he was returned to the top spot for the restart.
Back under green, Palmore and Emory pulled away from third-place Claar by three lengths. While Emory was able to stay with Palmore, another opportunity for him to make a winning pass never presented itself.
At the finish, Palmore was the winner by 0.361-second — about two car-lengths — over Emory. Claar was third, followed by Late Model regular Shawn Balluzzo and Bubba Farmer.

Following an early-race mishap, Ritchie German rallied from the rear of the field to win the 50-lap NTELOS Wireless Super Street feature.
German qualified at 73.435 mph to claim the pole and, with Ricky Derrick in tow, he set the pace for the first 12 circuits. Derrick, it should be noted, actually took the lead in Turns 1 and 2 on lap 8, only to see German execute a crossover move to regain the top spot at the end of the backstretch.
On lap 13, however, German was collected when a slower car got crossed up right in front of him on the backstretch. He was relegated to the back of the pack for the restart as Derrick took over the lead.
Derrick held sway until lap 26 when his car belched a plume of white smoke in Turn 1. The second, and final, yellow flag waved as he slowly made his way to the pit area.
With Derrick’s early exit, the lead passed to Tommy Sweeney. German, meanwhile, had clawed his way back up to the fourth spot.
Back under green, German quickly dispensed with third-place Mike Ganoe. Continuing his charge, he picked off second-place Dale Parro on lap 33 and set sail after the leader.
On lap 37, German caught Sweeney at the end of the backstretch and drove to the inside in Turn 3. He cleared Sweeney off the fourth corner to regain the lead. Within three laps, he had pulled away by four lengths.
At the finish, German was the winner, finishing 1.005 seconds ahead of Sweeney. Parro was third to the line, while Ganoe and Jessica Wood completed the top five.

Charlie Barclay led from flag-to-flag to win the 25-lap Verizon Super Truck (formerly Mini Truck) race. Third on the original starting grid, he moved up to the outside pole after Tommy Nixon and Evan VanLeeuwen, second and fourth in the lineup, tangled on the initial lap, prompting a complete restart.
Carl Livingston was the pole-sitter for the race, qualifying at 73.009 mph. As the event got under way, though, he couldn’t stave off Barclay, who pulled ahead in Turn 3. At the halfway point, Barclay enjoyed a full-straightaway lead.
The second, and final, yellow flag was displayed on lap 20 for debris in Turn 2, erasing Barclay’s healthy advantage as the field bunched for the restart.
Back under green, Barclay fashioned a three-length margin. Livingston tried to rally in the closing laps, but came up a single truck-length short at the finish as Barclay held on to win by 0.289-second.
Nixon recovered from his first-lap spin to come home third, followed by Hugo Belfiore, who started last in the 15-truck field. Bill Wallace was fifth at the checkers.

Ryan Crites emerged from a scramble on lap 17 and drove on to the win in the 25-lap Cook’s Moving Service INEX Legends feature.
Cameron Patrick earned the pole with a qualifying lap of 77.119 mph. He led the first two laps before giving way to Jeremy Cook, falling to fourth place in the process as Don McLaughlin and Crites tagged along with Cook.
On lap 16, Cook ran up on a slower car and, in tandem with McLaughlin, drove to the high side. Sensing an opportunity, Crites and Patrick went low and came away with the top two spots. McLaughlin also slipped around Cook to move up to third.
Entering the closing laps, Crites held a three-length lead over Patrick. On lap 23, though, Patrick closed in on the leader’s bumper and ducked to the inside off Turn 4. Crites blocked the advance as Patrick nearly lost control of his machine.
At the checkered flag, Crites was the winner by 0.103-second over Patrick. McLaughlin was third, followed by Cook and Kyle Hendershott.

Randy Prillaman topped a 27-car field to win the E-Z Auto Rental UCAR feature. He started on the outside of Row 1 and took the lead on lap 4.
Robbie Davis started on the pole, at 68.676 mph, and led the first three laps before Prillaman took command of the event.
Robert Rusinyak, who started 10th, moved into the runner-up spot on lap 8 and tailed Prillaman for the remainder of the race.
At the third caution flag, officials began counting caution laps. When the fourth caution flag appeared on what would have been the last circuit, the race was allowed to continue two laps past the scheduled 25-lap distance.
Ultimately, the decision was made to end the race under caution and Prillaman saw the simultaneous yellow and checkered flags. Rusinyak was second, followed by Glenn Healy Jr., Davis and Jonathan Mullett.

After qualifying on the pole, at 73.656 mph, Jill Brinson led all the way to win the 20-lapper for the BBFlabradors.com Wolf Trucks — a new class of minimally-modified, full-size pickups.
Just past the halfway mark, Michael Leech, who was second-fastest in time trials, looked to be ready to give Brinson a run for her money. Before a battle could develop, though, Leech fell by the wayside with mechanical problems.
At the finish, Brinson cruised to a half-straightaway win over Michael Farmer. The official margin of victory was 3.245 seconds. Eric Schaffer was third, while Jeff Sampson and Brad Perron were fourth and fifth, in that order.
