Looking Back From 2006: Edwards Motorsports Celebrates “Lifetime Achievement Award”

Hampton, Va --

For Immediate Release:July 8, 2006

During the pre-race events, Langley Speedway presented a “Lifetime Achievement Award” to Danny Edwards, Sr. Danny, Sr. is the founder of Edwards Motorsports and has supported his two sons in racing for over 25 years.

During Time Trials, Greg Edwards qualified on the pole and Danny Edwards qualified second. After the wheel spin of six, Greg was pushed back from his original qualifying spot to sixth and Danny to fifth for the start in tonight’s Crossroads Fuels 75 Lap Race.

With 21-cars for the start, the Late Model Driver’s were ready to go! On the start, Greg was on the outside of his brother Danny and quickly ducked in behind him. They moved into turn 2 with the 21 car of Anthony Warren just on the outside. By the second lap, the No. 21 car ducked in behind Greg putting Danny in fourth and Greg in fifth.

On lap 31, the No. 29 of Casey Wyatt went under the No. 34 of Paul DeBolt in turn 4. Three laps later and the Edwards brothers stayed nose-to-tail as they ducked under the 34 to take the 3rd and 4th spots. Danny and Greg made their way behind Casey Wyatt who was running 2nd but no one could catch up to Mark Wertz in the lead.

It wasn’t until lap 43 that they caught up to Wertz and the four cars spaced themselves apart by what seemed two car-lengths between each of them. The rest of the field was running more than half a straight-a-way behind. The four out front paced themselves until lap 62 when Greg tried to make a run under his brother on the front stretch. Just as Greg put his 27 nose under the 26, the spotter called over the radio, “stay high and back it down, caution out and car down coming out of turn 1”.

On the restart, Danny was still running third and Greg in fourth. Danny edged his way to Casey Wyatt as Greg edged his way to his brother. On the last lap, Greg would make his last attempt to get ahead of his brother. As they came out of turn four, Greg made his way under Danny. Danny crossed the finish line with his brother’s Dodge Charger’s nose just barely to the door.

Danny finished 3rd and Greg came in 4th for tonight’s race. The Dodge’s still dominate the track point’s lead but swap places on the board this week. Mark Wertz takes the lead this week by two points over Danny and Danny is two points over Greg. The (official) track points are as follows: Mark Wertz (500), Danny Edwards (498) and Greg Edwards (496).

Congratulate Mark Wertz on his win!

Many thanks Langley Speedway for honoring Danny Edwards, Sr. with the “Lifetime Achievement Award" this past weekend.
