Another Top Five for Edwards Brothers at Langley Speedway
Jun 5, 2006 - updated Jun 5th, 2006 1:09pm

Hampton, VA --

For Immediate Release: June 3, 2006

Edwards Motorsports



Due to heavy rainfall throughout the afternoon in the Hampton Roads area, practice and qualifying were cancelled for tonight’s Coca-Cola 100 but Sandy Lemonds (track owner) and her crew didn’t let it stop the racing!

The Crossroads Fuels Late Model drivers were lined up by track points standings. The Edwards brothers made up the front row, Greg #27 on the pole and brother Danny #26 just on the outside. The light was green, the flag was dropped and the brothers dueled to take the lead. Greg shot ahead and his brother ducked in behind him. On the third lap, the 40 of Mark Wertz made his way between the brothers just before the first caution of the night. Going into lap four, the 02 of Chris Munger brought out the first caution when his car started smoking in turn one.

With three laps back on the board, they were back to green. The three Dodge’s ran upfront for the next thirty-six laps until the 01 of Jeff Shiflett ducked under Danny. Two laps later, the 29 of Casey Wyatt passed him and then came the 22 of JJ Jensen. Danny was having problems with his car and falling back while he was trying work it out. Danny was now running 6th as his brother Greg still held the lead.

With 53 laps to go, Wertz stayed on Greg’s bumper trying to make a pass and by lap 58 he did just that. Wertz made his way to the outside of the 27 on the backstretch. Greg said later that he let him by without a battle thinking Wertz would wear out his tires before the end. Then on lap 66, Greg hit it just a little too fast going into turn four and the tires started to spin. As he was trying to make the correction, the 29 of Casey Wyatt got into the rear corner of the 27 on the front stretch. Greg said he could feel the 29 making contact as he was trying not to lose control. Casey immediately let off as Greg pulled ahead and they both made a clean break without incident.

On lap 70, the 22 of JJ Jensen spun out Jeff Shiflett in the 01 on the front-stretch putting both the 22 and 01 to the rear for the restart. This moved Danny back up to fourth as Greg was still trying to make a run to regain the lead. Mark was still holding the lead and running a half of straightaway ahead until lap 93 when the 21 of Anthony Warren blew a trail of smoke on front-stretch causing the last caution of the night. On the restart, Greg tried to gain on Wertz for the last eight laps but Wertz’s car was just too fast to catch tonight.

The Edwards brothers had top five finishes with Greg in second and brother Danny in fourth. Un-official track points now have the brothers in First (Greg) and Second (Danny) Place for Points! With 17 races left in the season, it could still be anyone’s victory for the Track Championship and the “The Race for the Ring”. Mark Friedman’s Custom Jewelers located in Yorktown, Virginia will present the “Track Championship Ring” at the end of the season.

It was certainly an exciting night of racing and we congratulate Mark Wertz on his win!

We hope you will all join us at Langley Speedway for the exciting events planned for this upcoming weekend. For complete details on the upcoming event, please visit their “Welcome Page” and “Top News” at: www.langley-speedway.com.

We thank the fans of “Saturday Night Racing” at Langley Speedway. A very special “thank you” to all of our Sponsors!
