Wyatt Finishes 2nd and Tightens Up Points Race
Aug 22, 2006 - updated Aug 22nd, 2006 12:20pm
Web posted by Chrissy Wyatt-Ward

Hampton Virginia --

For Immediate Release:

Crossroads Fuel Service Late Models 100 presented by SunTrust

Langley Speedway, Hampton Virginia

Wyatt’s ability to win 2 of the 4 100 lap features this year gave him and Team 29 high hopes of a chance to take their 7th victory of the 2006 season. Having another win to their credit this week also would have given them “three in a row.” Wyatt qualified 4th and the invert this week would be a “0”. The blessed zero would be a welcome sight for qualifying pole sitter Greg Edwards.

When the green flag waved, Wyatt had the challenge of getting to the bottom of the track; as starting in 4th place, puts the driver on the outside line. Wyatt’s spotter Rick Hester found him and hole and got him to the bottom very early in the running. During the first caution of the night, Wyatt stated “the car was pretty neutral but it’s a tick tight unfortunately.” Crew chief Sammy Gaita reassured him by saying “Don’t worry about it Case, the car will get better when the tires come up.” Green flag racing resumed and Wyatt maintained a comfortable lead over Jeff Shifflett until lap 67 when he began his late race charge to the front.

Throughout the race, the team keeps Wyatt apprised of the laps as they count down. With 23 laps to go Wyatt’s spotter, Rick Hester told him “if you got anything left, it’s time to show it, go get them boys.” In third at the time, Wyatt “got up on the wheel” and set his sights on Anthony Warren and Greg Edwards. The pass on Warren looked almost effortless. But to catch Edwards was a whole other story. Edwards Dodge was VERY STRONG and Wyatt’s tire stagger had closed up causing the car to get tight. By lap 97 Wyatt was within striking distance of Edwards, who had him by a car length. Unfortunately, his momentum was halted by a caution. In racing, the leader starts the race and/or restarts. Edwards restarts were starting at about turn 3 and Wyatt was catching on.

For the restart, Wyatt was right up on the # 27 Dodge going into turn one. When the two cars exited turn 2, it appeared Edwards “checked up” as did Wyatt which landed the #26 Dodge of Danny Edwards right on the tale end of Wyatt’s car…. LITERALLY. Wyatt got sideways on the backstretch, Danny Edwards advanced to second, Wyatt fell to third and the caution flew again before completion of the lap. This allowed Wyatt to reposition in 2nd for the final start to this heart-pounding race. A smooth restart allowed Wyatt to gain some breathing room over Danny Edwards and Wyatt finished .509 seconds behind race winner Greg Edwards. This finish closes the gap between Wyatt and current point leader Danny Edwards to a mere 44 points. This difference is shared among 4 drivers and should certainly make for some exciting racing to come.

During his post race interview Casey stated, “I tried to get him on that restart there. He checked up a little early getting into 1 and I got into him a little bit. It was nothing intentional. I knew if I could get him on that restart... really that was my last hope when my car’s not doing good. For some reason I get good restarts with this car. I took a shot at him, but didn’t get it.”

Casey and Team 29 would like to thank track Chaplain Tom Potter for all of his efforts to raise money for the Victory Junction Gang Camp and pulling off another awesome walk-a-thon. Casey also wishes to thank the boy scouts that visited with him and fellow racer Rick Gdovic in the pits on Saturday. Casey thoroughly enjoyed meeting and talking with them and hopes they enjoyed their evening. As always Casey and team would also like to thank their sponsors: Wyatt Homes Inc., Rica-Sha Hair and Tanning, George Brooks Law Offices, Bostic Electric, CBX Custom Modulars and their fans for their continued support.
