Hampton, Va. --

NASCAR Whelen All-American Series at Langley Speedway

Update: '08 opener set for Saturday Thursday, April 3, 2008


Highlighted by the return of the Late Model Stock Car division, Langley Speedway kicks off its 2008 NASCAR Whelen All-American Series campaign this Saturday, April 5, with Budweiser Night at the Races.

In addition to a 100-lapper for the Crossroads Fuel Service Late Model Stocks, this weekend's five-race slate includes: Super 8 Motels/B&B Engines Grand Stocks (40 laps); Med Express Urgent Care Super Trucks (25 laps); E-Z Auto Rental UCARs (25 laps); and, Rhonnda Claiborne, Realtor HRKC Pro Winged Champ Karts (20 laps).

Gates open at 1 p.m. and afternoon practice rounds run from 2 'til 4. Following a drivers meeting at 4:15, qualifying gets under way at 4:30. Pre-race ceremonies begin at 6:55 and the first feature event goes green 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 Late Model Stock Car class, governed by NASCAR rules, was last seen at Langley Speedway on a regular basis in 2001 when Norfolk, Va.'s Phil Warren claimed the last of his seven track championships.

Beginning in 2002, the Late Model Sportsman division - an extension of the old Grand Stock class - assumed the headlining role at the track. The "Sportsman" tag was later dropped from the title.

While Langley went its own way with its top class, Late Model Stock Cars continued to be the car of choice at other NASCAR-sanctioned speedways around the area and proved to be attractive to ambitious and talented young drivers, who saw the division as a more direct route to NASCAR's upper levels.

With the resurrection of LMSC racing at Langley, the track is now firmly back in the mainstream of the region's short track scene.

This season's Late Model Stock slate includes 15 events - 11 100-lap races and four 200-lap features. The highlight promises to be the July 12 "Hampton Heat" 200, part of the City of Hampton's ongoing 400th anniversary celebration, which culminates in 2010. The winner of that race will pocket $15,000 from an announced purse of over $40,000.
