NASCAR Whelen All-American Series at Langley Speedway

Hampton, VA

Sprint Night Race Report Saturday, April 19, 2008

(April 19) — Greg Edwards outlasted the competition and cruised to his first victory of the season in the Sprint 100 for the Crossroads Fuel Service Late Model Stock Cars, the featured event of Saturday evening’s NASCAR Whelen All-American Series program at Langley Speedway.
Nick Smith, the winner on opening night, earned the pole position for the second race of the year, clocking in at 88.892 mph. Of the 20 drivers who posted qualifying laps, he was the only one to break the 16-second barrier (15.997 seconds). Only 1.055 seconds separated first from 20th.
As the race got under way, Smith’s front-row colleague, C.E. Falk, nosed out front and led at the end of the initial circuit. Little by little, Falk inched ahead, finally clearing Smith off Turn 2 on lap 4. Smith settled into second place, followed by Anthony Warren, Danny Edwards Jr. and Greg Edwards.
By lap 12, Falk had stretched his lead to three lengths over Smith. Meanwhile, Greg Edwards was losing contact with the top four.
The complexion of the race took a drastic turn on lap 22 when a couple of slower cars tangled and spun to a halt in Turns 3 and 4. Arriving on the scene, Falk slowed to try to avoid the mess. Instead, he got clipped from behind and pushed right into the middle of it. By the time the smoke cleared, Falk, Smith and Warren were all involved.
As the field was aligned for a restart, Danny Edwards Jr. was the new leader, followed by Greg Edwards, Dean Shiflett, Mark Wertz and Terry Carroll. Falk made a visit to his pits, then rejoined the rear of the pack. Smith and Warren were sidelined for the night.
Back under green, Danny Edwards Jr. jumped out to a two-length lead over his brother, Greg. Behind them, Wertz zeroed in on Shiflett for the third spot, taking the position on lap 25. On that same circuit, Craig Eastep slipped past Carroll to crack the top five.
At lap 40, Danny Edwards Jr. owned a four-length lead and was gradually pulling away, while half a straightaway separated second-place Greg Edwards and third-place Wertz. A lap later, Eastep and Carroll overtook Wertz, dropping him to fifth in the running order.
Just past the halfway mark, Danny Edwards Jr. suddenly dropped off the pace, giving way to Greg Edwards on lap 52. At about the same time, Wertz began having difficulties and started sliding back through the field, eventually falling to eighth.
At the front, Greg Edwards had inherited a lead of better than half a straightaway over Shiflett, who had his hands full with Eastep. On lap 70, Eastep ducked under Shiflett in Turn 2 and edged ahead at the line for second. He cleared Shiflett on lap 71 and set off after Greg Edwards.
On lap 79, Greg Edwards put a lap on Danny Edwards Jr. Danny remained on the track until lap 84 when he called it a night, retiring to a 16th-place finish.
With only two laps to go, Eastep saw his chances at a podium vanish as he dropped off the pace and slid back in the running order.
At the finish, Greg Edwards was the winner by 4.333 seconds — a full straightaway — over Dean Shiflett. Jeff Shiflett tailed his brother to the stripe, in third, followed by Shawn Balluzzo and Carroll.
Aaron Adams was sixth at the end, while Eastep ended up seventh. Wertz was eighth, followed by Falk, who salvaged a lead-lap finish. Rick Gdovic was 10th, the final driver to complete the entire distance.
In Victory Lane after the race, Greg Edwards acknowledged his good fortune: “The best car didn’t win tonight, that’s for sure. But, sometimes, you’re better off to be lucky than good. We just haven’t quite figured this Ford out. We’re working on it. Everybody kept falling out in front of me. I just took the holes and they went. If they want to give me the race, I’ll certainly take it.”
Asked about his brother’s hard luck, Edwards said, “I saw something puff out from the front of his car and then I saw him wiggle his car. I thought he had a tire go down. I didn’t know what happened.”

In the evening’s other feature events:

Jammie Goode started on the pole, at 78.794 mph, and wired the field to pick up the win in the 40-lap season opener for the Super 8 Motels/B&B Engines Grand Stocks.
Goode grabbed the lead as the field roared into Turn 1 on the opening lap. Jimmy Adkins, who started third, tagged along on Goode’s bumper and moved into second. Paul Lubno, who started on the outside of Row 1, emerged from the shuffle in third, followed by Tommy Sweeney and Danny Harrell.
While Goode and Adkins maintained a firm grasp on the top two spots, Lubno and Sweeney battled for third place. Sweeney snagged the position on lap 10, only to see Lubno reclaim the spot on lap 13. Their duel allowed Goode and Adkins to open a half-straightaway gap at the head of the field.
The race’s second caution flag flew on lap 25 for a multi-car tangle in Turn 2. Goode managed to dodge past the accident scene, but Adkins wasn’t as fortunate, getting swept up in the melee.
Gathering for a restart, a lapped car separated Goode and Lubno, the new second-place runner. Returning to green, Goode took full advantage of the buffer, bolting to a five-length lead. Once free of the slower car, however, Lubno began to narrow the gap.
Lubno had drawn to within two lengths of Goode when the third, and final, caution flag waved on lap 32.
Under green for the dash to the checkers, Goode quickly gained a two-length edge over Lubno. He steadily pulled away over the remaining circuits and won by 1.680 seconds — nearly half a straightaway.
Lubno was second to the line, followed by Harrell. Sweeney rallied from the rear of the field to take fourth, passing both Brandon Hinson and Jason Leftwich to gain his final position on lap 38. Leftwich completed the top five.

Charlie Barclay led all 25 laps from the pole to win the season’s opening event for the Med Express Urgent Care Super Trucks.
After qualifying at 75.214 mph, Barclay grabbed the lead in the first turn on lap 1. Robbie Davis, the outside pole starter, settled into second, followed by Debbie Biesecker, who started third.
Things weren’t going quite as well for fourth-place starter Tommy Nixon, however. Caught to the outside, he dropped to eighth before finding a place in line. By lap 11, though, he had made his way back into sixth and was gaining on Brad Adams’ fifth-place machine.
Working lap 19, Nixon spun his truck off the fourth corner and collected seventh-place Troy Turnage. The worst was yet to come, though, as eighth-place Rick Potter piled into Turnage at full speed, severely damaging both trucks and prompting a red flag stoppage. While Potter and Turnage were sidelined by the accident, both drivers managed to walk away.
Back under green, Adams shot past Bill Wallace to pick up the fourth spot. At the front, Barclay had quickly opened a three-length margin and was easing away.
The last of the race’s two caution flags waved on lap 22 when third-place Biesecker spun off Turn 4. Lining up for the restart, Barclay, Davis, Adams and Wallace ran 1-4.
As the race resumed, Adams got the drop on Davis and came away with the runner-up position. The exchange allowed Barclay to dart away to a half-straightaway lead, a margin he would hold to the checkers.
While Barclay strolled to a 2.044-second win, Davis tried to regain the second position on the final circuit, ducking under Adams in Turn 4. The move went awry, though, as he spun off the corner and could only watch as the rest of the field streamed toward the finish line.
In the final rundown, Barclay was the winner, followed by Adams, Wallace, Nixon and Biesecker. Davis wound up eighth in the finishing order, at the tail end of the lead lap.

In the 25-lap opener for the E-Z Auto of Newport News UCARs, Robert Rusinyak took the lead on lap 20 and showed the way to the checkered flag.
Glenn Healy Jr. was due to start on the pole, at 70.588 mph. Mechanical problems in the pits prevented him from making the starting grid, though, handing the pole to Allen Dail.
As the race got going, Dail and Matt Hockaday battled all the way to Turn 4 with Dail getting the upper hand at the end of the first lap. Rusinyak hitched onto Dail and moved into second, followed by Renno Marchetti IV, while Hockaday slipped to fourth.
The first 14 laps were interrupted by five caution flags. It quickly became apparent that Dail was a bit vulnerable on the restarts and Rusinyak tried to take advantage. In fact, he grabbed the lead on a restart at lap 10, only to see the pass negated by another yellow flag.
Rusinyak’s persistence paid off, though, when the green flag flew for the final time on lap 19. He worked a fender alongside Dail in Turn 2 and took the lead off the fourth corner. This time, the yellow flag stayed under wraps and the move stuck. Deeper in the field, Hockaday grabbed third from Marchetti.
At the finish, Rusinyak was the winner by 0.438-second over Hockaday, who swiped second from Dail on lap 24. Marchetti was third to the line, while Dail slipped to fourth. Dusty Connor completed the top five.

With drafting help from Spencer Saunders, Dannie Wyatt moved out front on lap 4 and led the rest of the way to win the Rhonnda Claiborne, Realtor HRKC Pro Winged Champ Kart feature. The race was trimmed from 20 to 18 laps after three caution flags, which threatened to pose fuel issues for the entire field.
Robert Peach started on the pole, at 61.394 mph, and paced the first three circuits. Wyatt, meanwhile, drifted back to third on the opening lap to pick up Saunders.
Once they linked up, Wyatt and Saunders quickly made their way to the front, taking over the top two positions on lap 4. By lap 13, they had pulled away by nearly a full straightaway.
The field was bunched on lap 14 when the third, and final, caution flag appeared. Lining up for the restart, Wyatt and Saunders ran 1-2, followed by Peach, Allen Williams and Jeremy Grogg.
Back under green, Wyatt and Saunders maintained a disciplined, nose-to-tail draft and quickly opened a four-length advantage, while their pursuers began scrambling two- and three-wide in their wake.
At the finish, Wyatt was the winner by 0.092-second over Saunders, barely a kart-length. Grogg came home in third, followed by Adam Chalkley and Ryan Hudgins. After contending for the win in the closing laps, Peach ended up ninth.
