Hampton, VA --
NASCAR Dodge Weekly Series at Langley Speedway -
Hampton, Va. (Sept. 1) — Langley Speedway has announced the cancellation of its Sept. 2 NASCAR Dodge Weekly Series racing program. Tropical Storm Ernesto, which rolled through the region on Thursday night and Friday, left a large portion of the Speedway property in a waterlogged state — much too wet to be sufficiently dried out by Saturday evening. The storm also produced widespread power outages on Virginia’s Peninsula, where the track is located.

With the attention of the local stock car fraternity focused on Richmond, the “Extreme Sports” crowd will take the Langley spotlight for two nights of action next week. Both programs will feature “1-on-1 Drags,” “Time Attacks” (solo runs against the clock) and the popular “Burnout Competition.”
• On Sept. 6, the track will host its regular “Extreme Sports Wednesday” show. Gates open at 5:30 p.m. and the fun gets going at 7. Pit admission is $15. Grandstand tickets are $8 for adults and $5 for children, 6-12. Kids under 6 are admitted free to the grandstand area when accompanied by an adult.
• On Sept. 8, Casey Cycle City will present a special Friday edition of the “Extreme Sports” program with $450 payouts (and trophies) to the winners of the “Time Attacks” and “1-on-1 Drags” (A and B Mains) and $250 (and a trophy) to the winner of the “Burnout Competition.” All previous Wednesday night winners are eligible to compete in Friday evening’s event.
For the Sept. 8 show, gates open at 5:30 and racing begins at 7:30. Pit admission is $20 ($17 with a pit pass from Sept. 6). Grandstand tickets are $8 for adults and $5 for children, 6-12. Kids under 6 are admitted free to the grandstand area when accompanied by an adult.
