NASCAR Dodge Weekly Series at Langley Speedway - Hampton, VA

Casey Wyatt took the lead on lap 86 and stormed to his fourth victory of the season in the Bud Select 100 for the Crossroads Fuel Service/Sunoco Dealers Late Models, the featured event of Saturday evening’s NASCAR Dodge Weekly Series program at Langley Speedway.
Mark Wertz set the pace in time trials for the race, touring the .395-mile oval at 86.010 mph. After the post-qualifying inversion, however, he ended up on the outside of Row 4 as the field lined up for the green flag.
J.J. Jensen started from the pole with Anthony Warren to his outside. Doug Warren and Shawn Balluzzo made up Row 2, while Wyatt and Greg Edwards were in Row 3. Danny Edwards started seventh, to the left of Wertz.

Jeff Shiflett and Jeff Sampson posted the fifth- and sixth-quickest times, respectively. They were both sporting four fresh Goodyears, though, a violation of Langley’s two-tire rule which landed them in 15th and 16th on the starting grid.
As the event got under way, Anthony Warren remained to the outside of Jensen and edged ahead to lead the opening circuit by half a car-length. He cleared Jensen in Turn 2 on the second lap. Jensen dropped into second, followed by Doug Warren, Wyatt and Danny Edwards.
On lap 10, Wyatt worked past Doug Warren to gain the third spot. Danny Edwards, Wertz and Greg Edwards tagged along with Wyatt, dropping Doug Warren to seventh.
Continuing his march toward the point, Wyatt picked off Jensen for the runner-up spot on lap 18. Again, Danny Edwards, Wertz and Greg Edwards were there to take advantage of the open lane.
As positions changed hands in his mirror, Anthony Warren had his machine in the wind. By the 30th circuit, he was up by more than half a straightaway.
Coming around to complete the 34th lap, Wertz sized up Danny Edwards and launched a bid for third, ducking low off Turn 4. He drew even in Turn 1 on the following lap and completed the pass off Turn 2, bringing Greg Edwards with him.
The first yellow flag appeared on lap 47, erasing Anthony Warren’s lead, which had swelled to nearly a full straightaway. During the ensuing caution period, Greg Edwards headed to the pits with rear end problems. His crew made repairs and sent him back into the fray, but not before he dropped a lap to the leaders.

The second caution flag flew on lap 49. Setting the lineup, Anthony Warren was out front, followed by Wyatt, Wertz, Danny Edwards and Jensen.
Back under green, Anthony Warren fashioned a 1-1/2 car-length edge as Wertz moved up to challenge Wyatt for second. Behind them, Shiflett had made his way up to sixth and was dogging Jensen for the fifth position.

Shiflett nabbed fifth place on lap 51 with a strong run to the outside of Jensen. He continued his charge on lap 60, swiping fourth from Danny Edwards.
At the front, Wyatt had put some space between himself and third-place Wertz and was beginning to zero in on Anthony Warren.
The third yellow flag waved on lap 67, bunching the field. Anthony Warren, Wyatt, Wertz, Shiflett and Danny Edwards held the top five positions.
As the race resumed, Anthony Warren fashioned a two-length gap over Wyatt, who was getting a mirror-full of Wertz. Soon, though, Wyatt had driven away and Wertz was falling into Shiflett’s clutches.
Shiflett made the move around Wertz to pick up third place on lap 70, leaving Wertz to deal with Danny Edwards. Anthony Warren and Wyatt, meanwhile, were four lengths ahead of Shiflett.
The fourth caution flag was displayed on lap 78. It was quickly followed by caution #5 on lap 80. Anthony Warren, Wyatt, Shiflett, Wertz and Danny Edwards made up the top five as the field gathered for the restart.
Back under way, Wyatt latched onto Anthony Warren’s rear bumper. Exiting Turn 4 on lap 80, Wyatt poked a fender to the inside of Warren. Reaching the other end of the frontstretch, Wyatt drew alongside the leader.

Racing side-by-side, Warren managed to keep the nose of his car out front at the line until lap 86 when Wyatt took the lead for the first time. Wyatt cleared Warren off Turn 4 on the 87th circuit to grab the clear-cut edge. Within a handful of laps, he had forged a five-length advantage.
The last yellow flag was unfurled on lap 97 when Bubba Adams spun off Turn 2 and collected Jensen in a hard collision. A brief brouhaha ensued as Adams made his way across the infield and back to his pit area. Order was soon restored, though, and the field bunched behind Wyatt for the sprint to the checkers.
On the final restart, second-place Anthony Warren failed to come up to speed, causing a logjam as Wyatt bolted from the pack. Shiflett emerged from the scuffle in second, followed by Danny Edwards, as Anthony Warren continued to drop through the field.
At the finish, Wyatt was the winner by 1.614 seconds over Shiflett. Danny Edwards was third, followed by Wertz and Sampson. Mitch Sarvis was sixth, while Anthony Warren limped home in seventh, the final driver on the lead lap. Greg Edwards, Robbie Babb and Bobby Dean completed the top 10.
In Victory Lane after the race, Wyatt noted his duel with Anthony Warren: “Whew! I’m tired. That was tough, man. I ain’t driven that hard in a long time. I was driving my butt off for the last 50 laps there. Anthony ran me good, ran me clean, ran me strong. That was fun, running side-by-side like that. I ain’t had that in a long time. Me and Mark got a taste of it last week, but it won’t nothing like that. That was real fun. I ain’t raced like that in a long time.”
Second-place Shiflett was a bit breathless following his run from near the back of the pack: “That was a lot of fun. A big workout. I don’t know what happened on that last restart, but I didn’t mean to get into the 21 (Anthony Warren), but I had nowhere to go. We’re glad to be up here in the front again after the wreck we had three weeks ago. I think we got her back on track and we’re planning on coming and winning next week.”

Commenting on his third-place outing, Danny Edwards pointed out his messy windshield, compliments of his brother: “Kinda hard to see there. When Greg’s rear end line broke or something, it got on my windshield pretty bad. We struggled a little bit tonight. The car was a little bit loose there at the late stages. Early on, it was a little bit tight getting in. But, we worked hard and just kinda hung in there and come back and salvaged a decent finish.”
Combined with Greg Edwards’ eighth-place finish, Danny Edwards’ third-place run allowed him to edge atop the division standings. Danny now holds a two-point lead, 406-404. Wertz is third with 400, while Wyatt holds down fourth with 386.

In the evening’s other feature events:

In the 50-lap NTELOS Wireless Super Street feature, Tommy Sweeney took the lead for good on the 16th circuit and held on for his second win of the season.
Ricky Derrick established a new division record in qualifying for the race, turning a lap at 74.489 mph. The inversion wheel was not so kind to him, however, as an “8” popped up, putting on the outside of the fourth row.

Rod Busitzky started on the pole, flanked by Jason Langley. Larry Venable and J.T. Brown made up Row 2, while Dale Parro and Ritchie German occupied Row 3. Sweeney shared Row 4 with Derrick.
As the event got going, Venable immediately went after Busitzky for the lead. Langley edged ahead to pace lap 1, but gave way to Venable on the second circuit. Parro, Sweeney and German also slipped past Busitzky.
After caution flags on laps 4 and 5, the field got back down to business. Parro tracked Venable for a couple laps before taking over the top spot on lap 6. Sweeney, German and Derrick tagged along with Parro, dropping Venable to fifth.
The third caution flag appeared on lap 8 as Venable and Brown tangled off Turn 2 and Venable spun, collecting Langley in a wicked crash. While both drivers were OK, the race was red-flagged for cleanup.

Back under green, Sweeney moved up to challenge Parro, grabbing the lead for the first time on lap 9. German and Derrick took Sweeney’s cue and grabbed second and third, respectively.
The fourth yellow flag flew on lap 12.
On the restart, Derrick snagged the runner-up spot from German, then set out after Sweeney. He quickly closed in on the leader and took the point on lap 13.
Derrick’s stay atop the leaderboard only lasted a couple laps. Heading off Turn 2 on lap 16, he suddenly slowed and Sweeney flashed past to regain the lead. Derrick nursed his car to the pit lane and retired to a 12th-place finish.
Behind Sweeney, Parro had retaken second from German and was beginning to close in on the leader. He was within a car-length when caution #5 waved on lap 34. At that point, officials began scoring the caution laps.

When the green flag reappeared, at lap 38, Parro tried to keep pace with Sweeney. He was successful until lap 41 when Sweeney powered to a four-length advantage off Turn 2. The run ended on lap 43 when the sixth yellow flag flew for a Doug Woodyard/Chris Roberts tangle in Turn 1, which left Roberts’ car planted against the outside wall.
On the final restart, at lap 47, Sweeney pulled away by 1-1/2 car-lengths. Parro gobbled up the lost ground, however, and delivered a boot to the leader’s bumper in Turn 2 on the white-flag lap. Instead of rattling Sweeney, though, the rap only propelled him further ahead. Parro tried to rally off the last corner, but came up short at the line as Sweeney won by 0.225-second.
German was third to the stripe, followed by Sean Calway. Dennis Nowak was fifth at the checkers, but failed to clear the post-race technical inspection. Jessica Wood moved up to fifth in the official rundown.

Cameron Patrick scored his second win of the ‘06 campaign in a 25-lapper for the Cook’s Moving Service INEX Legends. He took the lead on lap 3 and never looked back, showing the way to the finish.
Patrick set the fast time in qualifying, at 78.343 mph, and started third after the inversion. Ryan Crites and Don McLaughlin shared the front row, while Rette Causey lined up to the outside of Patrick.
As the race got under way, Crites nosed out front and paced the first two circuits. Patrick moved up to second on the start and motored under Crites on the backstretch on lap 3, taking the lead off the fourth corner.

While Patrick headed the procession, Crites held down the second spot until lap 10 when Causey slipped past. Meanwhile, deeper in the field, Jeremy Cook, who started 15th after various problems during afternoon practice and qualifying, cracked the top five on lap 12.
Patrick was up by almost half a straightaway when the race’s only yellow flag appeared on lap 20. Gathering for the restart, Patrick, Causey, Crites, Kerry Gilbert and Cook made up the top five.
Back under green, Cook scooted around Gilbert to take over fourth and, at the front, Crites was hounding Causey for second.
Looking to snag the runner-up position on the final lap, Crites, instead, skated wide in Turn 1 and gave way to Cook and Gilbert.
Speeding back to the checkers, Patrick was the winner by 1.411 seconds over Causey. Cook tailed the lead duo to the line, in third. Gilbert was fourth and Crites was fifth. Thirteen of the 16 starters completed the entire distance.

Kevin Alves led the last 16 circuits and posted his first victory of the season in the 25-lap E-Z Auto Rental UCAR race.
Randy Sample was the fastest qualifier, at 68.869 mph, and kept the pole when a “0” was dialed up on the inverson wheel. Four-time race winner Randy Prillaman started on the outside of the front row, while Glenn Healy Jr. and Robert Rusinyak made up Row 2. Alves launched from fifth on the grid.
On the start, Sample grabbed the lead, while Prillaman, hung on the outside, tumbled to sixth before finding a place in line. Healy emerged from the shuffle in second, followed by Alves.
With Sample holding a two-length lead, Alves closed in on Healy for second. He took the spot on lap 7 and set sail after the leader.
On lap 10, Alves ducked under Sample on the backstretch and led by half a car-length at the stripe. He cleared Sample as they reached Turn 1 on lap 11.
Behind the leaders, Prillaman was starting to rumble, picking off Matt Hockaday for fifth on lap 10. He moved past Robbie Davis for fourth on lap 13 and took third from Healy on lap 16.
At the front, Alves was ahead of Sample by almost half a straightaway when the event’s lone yellow flag flew on lap 21. Lining up for the restart, Alves and Sample were separated from third-place Prillaman by a lapped car.
Back under green, Sample took a look to the outside of Alves before falling back in line. Prillaman, meanwhile, had dispensed with the slower car and was growing larger in Sample’s mirror. He swept past Sample off the fourth corner on lap 21 to take second place, then set sail after Alves.
Nearing the finish, Prillaman was able to close to within 1-1/2 lengths of the leader. He could get no closer, however, as Alves rolled on to a 0.544-second victory. Sample tailed Alves and Prillaman to the line, in third, while Healy and Davis completed the top five.
