Warren's DQ gives sixth Late Model win to Wyatt

Hampton, VA --

NASCAR Dodge Weekly Series at Langley Speedway

Dodge Night Race Report Saturday, August 12, 2006

Casey Wyatt was awarded his division-leading sixth victory of the year in the Dodge 75 for the Crossroads Fuel Service/Sunoco Dealers Late Models, the headlining event of Saturday evening’s NASCAR Dodge Weekly Series program at Langley Speedway. Wyatt was elevated to first place when the apparent winner, Anthony Warren, failed to clear the post-race technical inspection.
Warren, trying to turn around a frustrating season, was quickest during afternoon time trials, clocking in at 84.127 mph. After a spin of the inversion wheel, he lined up third. Greg Edwards started from the pole, flanked by points leader Mark Wertz. Danny Edwards shared Row 2 with Warren, while Wyatt and Jeff Shiflett made up Row 3.
As the race got under way, Greg Edwards took the early lead. Wertz settled into second, followed by Warren. Behind them, Danny Edwards and Wyatt tussled for fourth place with Wyatt grabbing the spot on lap 2.
Warren bypassed Wertz for second on lap 9, only to see the move negated by the first caution flag. Returning to green, Warren went after Wertz again, finally picking up the position on lap 12. Within two circuits, he was on Greg Edwards’ rear bumper.
On lap 15, Warren nosed under Greg Edwards in Turns 1 and 2 and gained the clear-cut edge at the end of the back straightaway. Five laps later, Wertz moved around Edwards to regain second place.
Wyatt was next to challenge Greg Edwards and he grabbed the third spot with a strong outside pass in Turns 3 and 4 on lap 24.
The second yellow flag waved on lap 33 when Danny Edwards, who had fallen back to seventh, suddenly slowed amidst a shower a sparks. During the caution period, he reported to the pits with a flat right-front tire. His crew made the change, checked over the car and returned him to the fray.
As the race resumed, Warren opened a two-length lead, while Wyatt began stalking second-place Wertz. Wyatt took the runner-up position on lap 35, but the swap allowed Warren to stretch his advantage to nearly half a straightaway.
Warren’s lead over Wyatt remained fairly consistent until lap 45. At that point, Warren began to slow and Wyatt chopped into the margin. Soon, though, Warren righted the ship and began to pull away again.
Later, Warren would report that his motor had begun to sour. Rather than being a handicap, however, the condition proved helpful because it allowed him to run flat out off the corners with no worries of the car getting away from him.
The third caution flag appeared on lap 59. Gathering for the restart, Warren, Wyatt, Wertz, Shawn Balluzzo and Greg Edwards made up the top five.
Back under green, Warren and Wyatt sped away from the pack, quickly putting better than half a straightaway on third-place Wertz.
Deeper in the field, Greg Edwards closed in on Balluzzo in a bid for fourth place. He nosed ahead on lap 68 and held the position when the fourth, and final, yellow flag flew on lap 70.
Under green for the final time, Wyatt immediately latched onto Warren’s rear bumper and carried him hard into Turn 1. Warren bobbled slightly, but maintained the lead. Wyatt kept up the attack until Turn 2 on lap 71 when Warren was able to open a two-length advantage.
Over the closing circuits, Warren continued to add to his lead. At the finish, he was 1.119 seconds ahead of Wyatt. Wertz was third to the stripe, holding off Greg Edwards’ late charge. Balluzzo was fifth.
In Victory Lane following the event, Warren commented on his engine concerns in the closing laps: “I thought, man, the kind of year we’ve been having, what else could go wrong?”
Unfortunately for Warren, he would soon find out.
During post-race inspections, officials detected an unapproved shock absorber on Warren’s #21 car and he was disqualified. The same nonconformity was discovered on Balluzzo’s fifth-place entry and he was also DQ’d.
In the amended rundown, Wyatt, Wertz, Greg Edwards, Danny Edwards and Shiflett made up the top five, while Aaron Adams, Dude Gibbs, Douglas Crigger, Ross Clements and Ron Blackburn rounded out the top 10. Billy Fisher and Jeff Sampson were 11th and 12th, in that order, the final drivers on the lead lap. Notably, all 16 starters were still running at the end of the race.
In the series standings, Wertz extended his lead over Danny Edwards to 12 points, 694-682. Greg Edwards is third with 676. Wyatt moved up to fourth with 636, while Shiflett slipped one spot to fifth with 632.

In the evening’s other feature events:

Dean Shiflett scored his fourth victory of the season in the Super 8 Motels/Dunkum’s Machine Shop Grand Stock feature. Due to a pair of late caution flags, the event ran 14 laps past the scheduled 40-lap distance.
Shiflett set a new division record in qualifying, touring Langley’s .395-mile oval at 78.742 mph. He got to keep the pole when a “0” was dialed up on the inversion wheel and shared the front row with five-time race winner Ricky Derrick.
As the event got under way, Shiflett powered out front, grabbing the upper hand on Derrick as the field reached Turn 1 for the first time. Derrick fell in line behind Shiflett, followed by Brandon Hinson, Ryan Nester and Danny Harrell.
With seven caution flags interrupting the proceedings and keeping the field bunched, Derrick never fell more than a few car lengths behind Shiflett. He could never get close enough, however, to launch a bid for the lead.
Along the way, Harrell slipped by Nester on lap 8 to take over fourth place and third-place Hinson fell by the wayside when his engine erupted in billows of white smoke on lap 38. With yellow flags flying fast and furious, officials had begun scoring the caution laps when the fifth one appeared on lap 24.
At the finish, Shiflett was the winner, crossing the line 0.498-second ahead of Derrick. Harrell was third, followed by Nester and Jason Leftwich.
During post-race inspections, officials found that the camber on Nester’s car fell outside the specified limits for the division and he was disqualified. David Brandt was also disqualified from the event as officials ordered him to the pits, after only two laps, for unsportsmanlike conduct.
In the official finishing order, Shiflett, Derrick, Harrell, Leftwich and Gene Smith made up the top five.

Dusty Conner notched his first win of the year in a 25-lapper for the E-Z Auto Rental UCARs, leading from wire-to-wire.
Points leader Randy Prillaman set the pace in time trials with a lap at 69.184 mph. After a spin of the inversion wheel, he started fourth. Matt Hockaday and Conner occupied the front row, while Kevin Alves lined up to the inside of Prillaman in Row 2.
As the initial green flag flew, Conner got the drop on Hockaday and carried a healthy lead into Turn 1. Hockaday slid into the second position, followed by Prillaman, Alves and Robbie Davis.
On lap 3, Prillaman dove to the inside of Hockaday on the backstretch and took over second place out of Turn 4. He quickly hacked into Conner’s three-length lead and began hunting for an opening.
Behind them, Davis swiped fourth place from Alves on lap 4. He held the spot for seven laps before Alves returned the favor on lap 11.
At the front, Prillaman filled Conner’s mirror. On a couple occasions, he was able to poke a fender alongside the leader, only to see his progress stymied by slower cars.
Just as Conner and Prillaman passed beneath the white flag to begin the final lap, the race’s only caution flag waved. Since the bulk of the field had yet to complete the 24th circuit, scoring reverted to lap 23, setting up a two-lap dash to the checkers.
On the final restart, Conner jumped out to a three-length edge. Prillaman tried to rally in the waning laps, but couldn’t close the gap as Conner held on to win by 0.642-second. Prillaman was the runner-up, followed by Hockaday, Alves and Davis.
Glenn Healy Jr., in sixth at the white flag, prevented another caution flag with a nifty save on the final circuit. While he may have slipped from sixth to 10th, his effort was still worthy of a mention.

Mark Claar took the lead for good on lap 9 and showed the way to his first win of the season as the B&C Seafood Modifieds swung back into action with a 50-lap race.
Claar paced the afternoon qualifying session, posting a lap at 84.197 mph, and he got to stay on the pole when a “0” popped up on the inversion wheel. Jason Palmore started to the outside of Claar on Row 1, while Henry Jones and Shawn Balluzzo made up Row 2.
On the start, Palmore shot ahead of Claar and hauled the 17-car field off into Turn 1. Claar nestled into the second spot, followed by Balluzzo and a side-by-side battle involving Jones and Bubba Farmer.
Claar tailed Palmore for the first seven circuits, then made his move off Turn 4 on lap 8. He drove to the inside of Palmore and the two went door-to-door for a lap with Claar gaining the advantage in Turn 4 on lap 9. By lap 14, Claar had opened a five-length lead.
The first yellow flag appeared on lap 15 when Farmer, running seventh, looped his machine in the middle of Turns 1 and 2. Lining up for the restart, Claar, Palmore, Balluzzo, Jones and Rusty Wood made up the top five.
Back under green, Claar quickly opened a two-length lead. Within two laps, that margin had grown to four lengths.
Thomas Stinson, a two-time Langley winner in Rolling Thunder Modified tour events in ‘06, cracked the top five for the first time on lap 19, scooting ahead of Wood.
On lap 22, Balluzzo took aim at Palmore and snagged the runner-up spot. Jones and Stinson followed Balluzzo’s cue, slipping by Palmore and dropping him to fifth place.
Palmore’s night came to a sudden end on lap 25 when he was swept up in a multi-car mess in Turn 1. Buddy Emory, Wood, Dwayne VanTassel and Buster Horne also caught a piece of the melee. Horne and Palmore were sidelined by the incident, while the others continued.
As the race resumed, Claar bolted to a four-length lead. Deeper in the field, Stinson was working on Jones for third, taking the position on lap 27. By the 30th circuit, Claar’s advantage stood at almost half a straightaway over Balluzzo.
Claar had an anxious moment on lap 33 as he was momentarily trapped behind a slower car, allowing Balluzzo to cut his lead to three lengths. He freed himself, though, and began to ease away.
The third, and final, caution flag appeared on lap 40 when Jones and David Kendall tangled and spun in Turn 1. Setting the lineup, Claar, Balluzzo, Stinson, Mike Rudy and A.J. Winstead held the front five spots.
Under green for the last time, Claar fashioned a three-length advantage, while Stinson went after Balluzzo for second place, diving low into Turn 1. Balluzzo fended him off to maintain the position.
Rebounding from his early-race mishap, Farmer made his way past Winstead and back into the top five on lap 41.
Nearing the finish, Claar had another close call as his path was blocked by a pair of lapped machines. Balluzzo, with Stinson on his tail, narrowed the gap to only two car-lengths. He could get no closer, though, as Claar won by 0.354-second. Stinson was third to the line, followed by Rudy and Farmer.
