Hampton, VA --

SunTrust Night set for this Saturday NASCAR Whelen All-American Series at Langley Speedway

Update:
Five feature events are slated for this Saturday, Aug. 11, as Langley Speedway continues its 2007 NASCAR Whelen All-American Series campaign with SunTrust Bank Night at the Races.
This week's lineup includes: Crossroads Fuel Service Late Models (75 laps); Dunkum's Machine Shop/Super 8 Motels Grand Stocks (40 laps); B&C Seafood Modifieds (50 laps); Peninsula Hardwood Mulch INEX Legends (25 laps); and, E-Z Auto Rental UCARs (25 laps).
Gates open at 1 p.m., while afternoon practice runs from 2 'til 4. Following a 4:15 drivers meeting, time trials get under way at 4:30. Pre-race activities commence at 6:55 and the evening's first feature race takes the green flag 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 in uniform are also admitted free. Military members in civvies (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.
• • •
The Speedway will hold its regular, weekly "test and tune" session this evening. Gates open at 5 p.m. and practice begins at 6.
Pit admission is $10 with a valid NASCAR, INEX, HRKC or Langley Speedway license and $20 without a current competition license. There is no charge to watch from the grandstands.
Summaries of Thursday evening practice sessions (as well as other events) are available on the track's Web site, www.langley-speedway.com. In the menu on the homepage, click on "Results," then follow the appropriate links. Practice results are posted shortly after the end of each week's session.
• • •
The Speedway's "Wild Wacky Wednesday" schedule continues on August 15. The program includes "Time Attacks" (solo runs against the clock), 1-on-1 drag races (for one lap around the track) and a burnout competition.
Gates open at 5:30 p.m. and the fun begins at 7. Tickets are just $5 for adults and kids (6-12). Children under 6 are admitted free when accompanied by an adult. Pit passes for competitors are $15.

In a bit of housekeeping from last Saturday night, Dwain Smith and Greg Burgess, who finished 1-2 in the Kim Jusino, Realtor HRKC Pro Winged Champ Kart race, failed to clear the post-race inspection and were demoted to 20th and 21st, respectively, in the official rundown. Burgess also drew a one-race suspension from HRKC officials.
With the ouster of Smith and Burgess, the win went to Rob Cotic, who started 17th in the 21-kart field. Jeremy Grogg, Bobby Peach, Casey Wyatt and Danny Wyatt rounded out the amended top five.

Philip Morris of Motor Mile Speedway in Radford has widened his lead in NASCAR's latest Virginia state championship points listing. He is 130 points ahead of Langley regular Greg Edwards, 658-528. Edwards struggled to a 17th-place finish in last weekend's Late Model Stock Car race at South Boston Speedway. It was his first finish outside the top 10 this season.
Danny Edwards ranks fourth in the current standings, 24 behind his brother. Other local drivers in the statewide top 10 include sixth-place Mark Wertz and 10th-place Shawn Balluzzo.
• • •
In NASCAR's national top 500, Woody Pitkat of Stafford Motor Speedway in Stafford Springs, Conn., continues to hold a iron grip on the #1 spot. He holds a 90-point edge over fellow Stafford driver Keith Rocco.
Local drivers in the top 500 include: Greg Edwards (42nd), Danny Edwards (56th), Mark Wertz (68th), Shawn Balluzzo (105th), Jeff Shiflett (146th), Dean Shiflett (283rd), Anthony Warren (341st), Jeff Sampson (347th), Craig Eastep (413th) and Ross Clements (467th).

Baseball Hall of Famer and homespun philosopher Satchel Paige once advised, "Don't look back. Something might be gaining on you."
If Late Model points leader Danny Edwards looks back, that "something" would be Mark Wertz's bright blue #40 Dodge.
Following his seventh victory on July 7 - win #7 on 7/7/07 - Edwards enjoyed a 56-point cushion in the division rankings. That greater-than-50-point margin was significant because it meant that Edwards would retain the lead, even if he were forced to miss one race.
For the July 14 event, however, Langley's Late Model field made the switch from Goodyear tires to the American Racer brand and, since then, Edwards has cooled off somewhat, while Wertz has surged.
Over the last four races, Wertz has trimmed 22 points from Edwards' lead, making up an average of 5.5 points per event, and now trails by just 34 - 760-726. If he can maintain his current pace, Wertz would overtake Edwards for the division lead in the next-to-last race of the season.
• • •
NASCAR action continues at Langley Speedway next Saturday, Aug. 18, when the track hosts Langley Federal Credit Union Night at the Races. That evening's feature lineup includes: Late Models, Med Express Urgent Care Super Streets, Cook's Moving Service Super Trucks, UCARs and Wolf Contractors Wolf Trucks.
