Langley Speedway News
NASCAR Whelen All-American Series at Langley Speedway
Apr 4, 2007 - updated Apr 4th, 2007 9:22pm

Hampton, VA --

Update: '07 Season Opener set for this Saturday Wednesday, April 4, 2007

“The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.” — Lao-tzu, Chinese philosopher

Langley Speedway’s drivers will take that first step in the long journey toward the championship when the track launches its 2007 NASCAR Whelen All-American Series campaign this Saturday, April 7, with Toyota Night at the Races presented by the Hampton Roads Toyota Dealers Association.
The opening night feature lineup includes: Crossroads Fuel Service Late Models (75 laps); Super 8 Motels/Dunkum’s Machine Shop Grand Stocks (40 laps); Cook’s Moving Service Super Trucks (25 laps); Peninsula Hardwood Mulch INEX Legends (25 laps); E-Z Auto Rental UCARs (25 laps); and, Kim Jusino, Realtor HRKC Pro Winged Champ Karts (20 laps).
For the ‘07 season, the Speedway’s raceday schedule has been altered slightly. This year, gates open at 1 p.m. and practice rounds get under way at 2:30. The drivers meeting is slated for 4:15, followed by time trials at 4:30. Pre-race festivities, including an appearance by the Easter Bunny, begin at 6:45 and the evening’s racing program starts at 7.
Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children, 6-12. “Little Race Fans” (under 6) are admitted free when accompanied by an adult. Military members (active-duty or retired, with ID) and senior citizens (60+, with ID) receive a $2 discount off the regular adult ticket price. "Family Packs," which include two adult and two children's tickets, are $25 — a savings of $5.
• • •
As noted above, Cook’s Moving Service has signed on to sponsor the Super Trucks, completing the roster of division sponsors for the 2007 season.
Many exciting sponsorship opportunities are still available at the track. To learn more, contact Michael Hill at (757) 865-RACE.

For Langley’s Late Model drivers and teams, the new season will usher in a new format for compiling points toward NASCAR state and national awards.
Since the inception of its weekly racing program in 1982, NASCAR has aligned its member tracks into regions or divisions, which included facilities from several different states or Canadian provinces.
This year, drivers from each track within a state or province will be competing against one another for the title of “state champion.”
For example, Langley Late Model drivers may earn NASCAR points toward the Virginia state championship by racing at Langley, South Boston Speedway, Old Dominion Speedway in Manassas and Motor Mile Speedway in Radford. NASCAR points earned at tracks outside Virginia won’t count toward the Virginia championship, however drivers can compete for titles in more than one state.
The NASCAR Whelen All-American Series national champion will be the driver who posts the greatest number of NASCAR points in events at any sanctioned facility in North America. A driver need not be a track or state champ to win the national championship.
For the record, Virginia tracks have produced three of the last four national champions — Mark McFarland (Old Dominion, 2003), Peyton Sellers (South Boston, 2005) and Philip Morris (Motor Mile, 2006). Could ‘07 be the year for a Langley regular to reach the summit?
NASCAR’s method of awarding points toward its state and national titles has also undergone a reinvention for the new season, favoring a “bottom-up” versus a “top-down” approach.
For the past couple seasons, NASCAR has awarded 50 points to feature division race winners, 48 for second place, 46 for third, and so on. Then, bonus points were awarded to all drivers, based on the car count for that particular race — 10 points for 15-20 cars and 20 points for 21+ cars.
In the new setup, the last-place driver will get two points and the number of points awarded will increase by two for each position up the finishing order. (i.e. In a race with a 10-car starting field, the winner would receive 20 NASCAR points, while the winner of a race with a 20-car starting field would get 40.)
The maximum number of points a race winner can receive is 50. If more than 25 cars are in the starting field, then drivers finishing 25th and back would all get two points. This is done to level the playing field for smaller facilities that can’t reasonably start more than 25 cars due to physical constraints.
At the end of the season, each driver’s 18 best points outings will be taken into consideration when determining the state and national champions. Sept. 30 will be the closing date for races to count toward the NASCAR honors.
Also, throughout the season, NASCAR will maintain a ranking of the top 500 drivers from across the country. At season’s end, each of the top 500 drivers will receive a certificate of recognition from NASCAR.
Track points for all of Langley Speedway’s regular divisions will be kept using the traditional “top-down” system — 50 for first, 48 for second, etc.
• • •
Already an integral part of Langley Speedway’s program, the Hampton Roads Kart Club’s Pro Winged Champ Kart division, sponsored by Kim Jusino, Realtor, will take on an even higher profile this season.
Point standings for the class — from its 10 Saturday night races and a handful of Sunday events (at regular HRKC gatherings) — will be included in Langley Speedway’s weekly points updates. The division champ and other top points finishers will be recognized at Langley Speedway’s Annual Awards Banquet on Nov. 3.
Also, the HRKC Pro Winged Champ Karts, along with the Mid-Atlantic Champ Kart Association, will serve as co-headliners for the Oct. 13 program — The 2nd Annual Virginia State UCAR Championships/”King of Champs.”
• • •
Langley Speedway will kick off its regular schedule of Thursday evening “test and tune” sessions on April 5. Gates open at 5 p.m. and practice starts at 6. Pit admission is $10 with a valid NASCAR, INEX, Langley Speedway or HRKC license and $20 without a current competition license. There is no charge to watch practice from the grandstands. With a lighting test slated for Thursday evening, this week’s practice may run a bit later than normal.
• • •
Following this weekend’s season kickoff, action continues at Langley Speedway on Saturday, April 14, with AMF Bowling Night at the Races. The lineup includes: Late Models, Med Express Super Streets, INEX Legends, B&C Seafood Modifieds and Wolf Contracting Wolf Trucks.
• • •
A longtime member of the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series, Langley Speedway is a .395-mile, slightly-banked oval. The track is located at 11 Dale Lemonds Dr., off North Armistead Ave., in Hampton, Va.
To learn more about Langley Speedway and its upcoming 2007 season, fans may call the Speedway office at (757) 865-RACE or consult the track’s Web site — www.langley-speedway.com.
