NASCAR Whelen All-American Series at Langley Speedway

Moody's A.V.E.S. Night Race Report Saturday, June 14, 2008

Greg Edwards held off a challenge from his brother, Danny Edwards Jr., and came away with his second victory of the season in the rain-shortened Moody’s All Virginia Environmental Solutions 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.
Edwards, wheeling the #84 car he usually pilots at South Boston Speedway, set the fast time in qualifying for the event, clocking in at 88.252 mph. C.E. Falk was second-quickest, followed by Nick Smith, Paul DeBolt and Jeff Shiflett. Danny Edwards Jr., who was going for his fourth straight win, qualified sixth-fastest.

As the race got under way, Greg Edwards quickly gained the upper hand, pulling ahead of Falk as the field roared through Turns 1 and 2 for the first time. Falk settled into second, while Smith, Shiflett and DeBolt emerged from the opening shuffle in third, fourth and fifth, in that order.
Danny Edwards Jr. was the man on the move in the early going. He bypassed DeBolt on lap 3 to crack the top five, then swiped fourth from Shiflett on lap 7.
The first caution flag flew on lap 11 when Terry Carroll spun into Turn 1. The interruption erased the five-car-length margin that Greg Edwards had fashioned over second-place Falk.
Back under green, Danny Edwards Jr. went back on the attack. He snagged the third spot from Smith on lap 13 and overhauled Fallk for the runner-up position on lap 20. As positions changed hands in his mirror, Greg Edwards motored off to a half-straightaway lead.
On lap 27, Greg Edwards waded into slower traffic for the first time and Danny Edwards Jr. zeroed in, trimming his brother’s margin to just two lengths.

Behind the lead duo, Smith moved up to challenge Falk for third. He slipped under Falk’s #40 machine off Turn 4 on lap 31 and completed the pass through Turns 1 and 2 on lap 32. Before that lap was in the books, however, the second yellow flag waved. Scoring reverted to lap 31 and Falk was returned to third place for the restart.
It’s been said that cautions breed cautions and that turned out to be the case on Saturday night as yellow flags appeared on laps 33, 34 and 37. Setting the lineup as the field prepared to go back under the green flag, the Edwards brother continued to run 1-2, followed by Falk, Smith and Shiflett.

As the race resumed, Smith wasted no time in going after Falk, taking over third place as they sped down the backstretch. In the middle of Turns 3 and 4, Falk switched lanes and tried to duck back to the inside of Smith off the fourth corner. Smith held him off, though, gaining firm command of the spot.
Deeper in the field, cars began to stack up behind fifth-place Jeff Shiflett. On lap 48, he gave up the position to Mark Wertz, who brought Dean Shiflett and Shawn Balluzzo along with him.
At the halfway mark, Greg Edwards enjoyed a three-length advantage over Danny Edwards Jr. Half a straightaway separated them from third-place Smith, who held a similar margin over Falk.
On lap 67, Greg Edwards headed into traffic again and Danny Edwards Jr. closed the gap, parking himself on his brother’s rear bumper.
Behind the leaders, a battle was brewing for the fifth spot as Dean Shiflett nosed ahead of Wertz at the end of the 67th circuit. Wertz battled back, though, and cleared Shiflett on lap 68. Shiflett cooled his heels for several laps, then resumed the battle on lap 79, grabbing the fifth position off Turn 4.

At the head of the field, Greg Edwards was clinging to a narrow lead over Danny Edwards Jr. and preparing to encounter another gaggle of slower cars on lap 90. As the Edwardses jousted, Smith began to creep back into contention.
Before the race-ending battle could play out, however, rain began to pelt the speedway, prompting the last of the event’s six caution flags. As fans scattered from the grandstands, officials decided to call the race and, with 93 laps on the board, the field passed under both the yellow and checkered flags.
In the final rundown, Greg Edwards was the winner, followed by Danny Edwards Jr. Smith was third, while Falk and Dean Shiflett completed the top five. Balluzzo and Wertz were sixth and seventh, respectively, followed by Jeff Shiflett and Matt Waltz, the final drivers on the lead lap. Gary Weeks was 10th, a lap off the leaders’ pace.
In Victory Lane after the event, Greg Edwards talked about the duel with his brother and offered a salute to his car owner: “I got loose when he’d get to my bumper. I almost lost it to him a couple times. I got real loose off of 2 and he drove underneath me there. I think maybe he was a little bit loose, too. But, if I could just keep my focus and not worry so much about him and worry about hitting my marks, we’d do all right. I’ve gotta thank Ted Daves for letting me drive this car. He’s let me run it at South Boston. We’ve won there, sat on a couple of poles. This is the first time he’s ever been here with a race car and, to sit on the pole and win the race, I’m just proud of him.”
Quizzed about the effects of close-quarters racing at Langley, Edwards explained, “When you get by yourself and nobody’s on your bumper, you focus on the road in front of you. When somebody starts filling up your mirror, not only do they take the air off your rear spoiler — which you wouldn’t think would do much here, but it’s very effective — but it just bothers you. You know, if you slip, they’re right there, so I think it’s as much of a mental thing as it is an aero thing. But, Danny’s usually the best at tucking up underneath of you.”

In the evening’s other feature events:

Defending division champ Paul Lubno started on the pole, at 78.235 mph, and led all 40 laps to post his second straight win in the Super 8 Motels/B&B Engines Grand Stock race. With the victory, the 104th of his Langley career, Lubno moved atop the division standings.
Lubno gained the clear-cut advantage at the end of the backstretch on the opening lap, pulling ahead of Jimmy Adkins, who started alongside him on the front row. Adkins dropped in line behind Lubno, followed by Danny Harrell.
Meanwhile, Jammie Goode, the points leader coming into the event, was struggling in the early going. Starting fourth, he got trapped in the outside lane as the race got under way and tumbled to seventh place.
The first caution flag appeared on lap 6 for Kyle Waltz’s spin in Turn 2.
Back under green, Goode quickly disposed of Robbie Parker to regain sixth, while Lubno bolted to a four-length lead.
Brandon Hinson was active in the opening circuits. He bypassed Tommy Sweeney for fourth on lap 7, then grabbed third from Harrell on lap 10. On that same circuit, Goode got by Sweeney to move back into the top five.
On lap 12, Goode took fourth from Harrell and brought Sweeney along with him. Four laps later, Sweeney passed Goode for fourth. With his potential challengers battling among themselves, Lubno cruised to a six-length advantage.
By lap 26, Hinson had tracked down second-place Adkins and was pressuring him for the position. They were soon joined by Sweeney and Goode, making the tussle for second a four-way affair amidst lapped traffic.
The complexion of the event took a turn on lap 31 when Hinson spun in Turn 1 and collected Goode. In turn, Goode clipped Carl Livingston, who was trying to dodge through the accident scene. The incident, which necessitated the second yellow flag, sidelined all three cars.
Caution #3 — the last one of the race — flew just after the ensuing restart as Jason Leftwich’s night came to an end in a billow of smoke on the frontstretch.
On the final restart, Lubno forged a two-length edge over Adkins, stretching the margin to three lengths as they rumbled onto the backstretch. By the finish, Lubno’s lead had grown to four lengths and he won by 1.150 seconds.
Adkins was second in the finishing order, followed by Sweeney, Harrell and Rodney Boyd. Goode ended up 18th in the rundown.

Steve Keesee went from third place to first off the final corner and notched his first victory of the season in a 25-lapper for the Peninsula Hardwood Mulch INEX Legends.
Brad Hancock started on the pole, at 78.029 mph, and paced the first three laps. During the second caution period, at lap 4, he suddenly pulled into the pits and retired for the evening. Don McLaughlin, in second at the time, also visited the pits as the lead passed to Keesee.
On the restart, Keesee manufactured a narrow margin over second-place Jamie Price. Meanwhile, Ryan Crites, who came into the event on a two-race winning streak, bypassed Joe Hendricks to take over third place on lap 5.
On lap 6, Price went after Keesee for the lead, ducking under him in Turns 1 and 2. Price nosed ahead at the line and cleared Keesee off Turn 4 on lap 7. Crites moved up to fill the opening under Keesee and nabbed second place on lap 8.
By lap 11, Crites had tracked down Price and the battled was on. All the way to the finish, the two were separated by no more than a car-length as Crites pecked at Price’s rear bumper. Keesee, meanwhile, lingered a couple car-lengths back.
On the final circuit, Crites mounted one last charge at Price in Turns 3 and 4. The two made contact in the fourth corner and skittered up the track. Seizing the opportunity, Keesee ducked low and shot past both cars to take the lead.
At the checkers, Keesee was 0.424-second ahead of Price, who put his own disappointment aside and came to Victory Lane to congratulate the winner. Crites was third, followed by Hendricks and Cameron Patrick.

Matt Hockaday overcame a less-than-ideal starting spot to score his third straight victory in the 25-lap E-Z Auto of Newport News UCAR feature.
Hockaday was the fastest qualifier, at 70.049 mph, but, since he had won the previous two races, track rules dictated that he could start no better than eighth. With Hockaday retreating to the outside of Row 4, Robert Rusinyak moved to the pole with Randy Prillaman alongside.
As the race got rolling, Rusinyak grabbed the lead and paced the opening lap. He gave way to Prillaman in Turn 2 on the second circuit, though, and slipped to third on lap 3 as Renno Marchetti IV scooted by.
Hockaday, meanwhile, was making steady progress toward the front. He emerged from the opening shuffle in sixth, took over fifth on lap 2 and moved up to fourth on lap 5. On lap 7, he nosed ahead of Rusinyak for third. He was almost half a straightaway behind Prillaman and Marchetti, though.
Hockaday’s deficit was wiped out on lap 11 when the only caution flag waved for John Gonsalves’ spin in Turn 4. Lining up for the restart, Prillaman, Marchetti and Hockaday ran 1-2-3, followed by Rusinyak and Dusty Connor.
Back under green, the front four cars broke away from the pack. On lap 13, Rusinyak made a bold move, passing both Hockaday and Marchetti to take over second. He gave the spots right back, though, as Hockaday, then Marchetti and Connor, slipped past. Prillaman, meanwhile, enjoyed a five-length lead.
By lap 17, Hockaday had drawn to within a couple lengths of the leader. He continued to close and ducked to the inside of Prillaman off Turn 4 on lap 20. He moved out front in Turns 1 and 2 on lap 21 to take the lead for the first time.
Hockaday’s victory was all but assured when Prillaman raced across the rumble strips at the edge of Turns 1 and 2 on lap 22. The excursion upset Prillaman’s car and allowed Hockaday to gain valuable breathing room.
At the finish, Hockaday was the winner by five lengths over Prillaman. Marchetti was third, while Connor was fourth and Rusinyak ended his up-and-down night in fifth.

Mark Claar got the better of Jeff Sampson and claimed his second victory of the season in the 25-lap Wolf Contractors Wolf Truck race.
Claar started on the pole, at 84.835 mph, and jumped out front on the opening lap. Sampson settled in on his bumper and began searching for an opening. Within three laps, the two had pulled away from third-place Troy Hutcheson by half a straightaway.
The race was interrupted by caution flags on laps 5, 9 and 14 (twice). On each restart, Claar carefully guarded the inside of the track, while Sampson was fighting a loose condition, especially in Turn 2.
Heading into the closing laps, though, Sampson seemed to have adjusted to his handling issues as he closed to within a truck-length of the leader.
Sampson’s effort was derailed, however, by one final bobble in Turn 2 on the white-flag lap. The slip allowed Claar to dart away and he won by three lengths. Sampson was second, followed by Hutcheson, George VanGuilder and Michael Farmer. Each of the top five finishers was a Pro Division entry.
Eric Schaffer was sixth overall and bagged top honors in the Semi-Pro Division. It was his fourth victory of the year. His win was sealed when the other Semi-Pro competitor, Jill Brinson, was collected in a crash on a restart at lap 14.
