Casey Wyatt Finishes on the Podium After Starting Last

Hampton Virginia --

Race Date: September 23, 2006

Crossroads Fuel Service/Sunoco Dealers Late Models 75

Langley Speedway, Hampton Virginia- Last week, Casey’s car developed a miss half-way through the race. The following Monday, team owner Wayne Wyatt conversed with the engine builder on what he had found. Feeling it was something in the ignition Wyatt started the search there. He was unable to pinpoint the problem and was out of time. He and his son/driver Casey had a trip planned to Dover to meet with some team owners about Casey’s plans for the 2007 season. Arriving home late Friday night, Wyatt started his search again early Saturday morning. After many attempts and no success, it would be decided that to play it safe, an engine swap would be needed. Wyatt made the call to his engine builder and sent Casey after a new engine. The team proceeded to remove the old one, knowing it was only a 2 hour round trip. The trip turned into 4 ½ hours due to heavy traffic and construction. The team decided they couldn’t make it to the track in time to qualify so they concentrated on getting the new engine in and getting the car ready to race.

Casey and Team 29 pulled their race hauler into Langley Speedway at 7:38 pm. After unloading, track officials gave Casey 2 pace laps during warm up laps for the Modified division. After doing so, the team went over the car to make sure it was ready for the 75 lap event scheduled for the evening. Starting from the rear of the 16 car field, Casey knew he had a long way to go to catch the front of the field. By lap 9, he had secured 10th place, lap 20 brought the pass for 9th and by lap 28 he secured 6th place. On lap 38, Casey would complete the pass of Jeff Shiflett for 5th. The next challenge for Casey was to pass visiting South Boston competitor, Nick Smith. After looking for every opportunity to pass, Casey nudged his nose under Smith coming off of turn four. Completing the pass, he set his sights on the three Dodges of Danny Edwards, Mark Wertz and point’s leader Greg Edwards.

On two separate occasions, Wyatt would complete the pass of Danny Edwards for 3rd, only to be relegated back to 4th by cautions. The third and final attempt to pass Edwards would come on lap 68. Wyatt took the third spot with seven laps to go. Running out of laps, Casey finished third for his 13th finish in the top three this season.

After the race, Casey thanked his crew for their hard work and dedication. “They worked all day just to get this car to the track.” Casey also thanked engine builder Bob Shreeves for coming to the rescue on such short notice. Casey expressed that the new motor had more horsepower and the team was going to have to make some adjustments to take advantage of it. Casey Wyatt and Team 29 will be going for their 7th win Saturday September 30th in Langley Speedway’s scheduled 100 lap event.

Casey and Team 29 would like to thank their sponsors: Wyatt Homes Inc., Rica-Sha Hair and Tanning, George Brooks Law Offices, Bostic Electric, CBX Custom Modulars and their many fans for their continued support.
