Hampton, VA --

NASCAR Whelen All-American Series at Langley Speedway

Heyman Investment Group-Wachovia Securities Night Race Report Saturday, July 26, 2008

Danny Edwards Jr. was awarded his fifth victory of the season when Nick Smith failed to clear the post-race technical inspection following the Heyman Investment Group-Wachovia Securities 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.

Looking to extend his recent hot streak, Smith set the pace in afternoon time trials, clocking in at 88.334 mph. Greg Edwards shared the front row with Smith. C.E. Falk and Doug Godsey made up Row 2, while Danny Edwards Jr. and Doug Warren started in Row 3.
As the race got under way, Greg Edwards won the drag race into Turn 1 to take the early lead. Smith dropped into second, followed by Falk, Godsey and Danny Edwards Jr.

Coming around to complete the opening circuit, Falk poked a fender alongside Smith out of Turn 4 and motored into the runner-up spot on lap 2. Two laps later, Danny Edwards Jr. bypassed Godsey for fourth and, on lap 5, Smith regained second from Falk. All the shuffling allowed Greg Edwards to pull away by five car-lengths.
The first caution flag appeared on lap 12 when Shawn Balluzzo and Duane Shreeves spun in the middle of Turns 1 and 2. The yellow flag was an unwelcome sight for Warren, who had just passed Godsey to crack the top five. Scoring reverted to lap 11 and Godsey kept fifth place for the restart.
Back under green, Greg Edwards and Smith bolted in nose-to-tail formation. Smith shadowed Edwards until lap 15 when he drove underneath the leader in Turn 1. Edwards regained command on the backstretch, but the tussle allowed Falk and Danny Edwards Jr. to close in.
Danny Edwards Jr. slipped around Falk for third place on lap 19. He initiated the move on the back straightaway on lap 18 and gained the clear-cut edge in Turns 1 and 2 on the following circuit. Within four laps, Danny Edwards Jr. had zeroed in on Smith’s rear bumper.
On lap 29, Smith nosed under Greg Edwards off the fourth corner and climbed atop the leaderboard on lap 30. Only three laps later, he had already opened a three-length margin. That lead swelled to half a straightaway on lap 36 as the Edwardses found themselves trapped behind a slower car.
The second caution flag flew on lap 37 for Shreeves’ spin in Turn 4. Setting the lineup, Smith was the leader, followed by Greg Edwards, Danny Edwards Jr., Falk and Mark Wertz.

As the race resumed, Smith quickly fashioned a two-length lead over Greg Edwards, then began to ease away. By the time the third caution flag was displayed, at lap 76, his advantage had grown to more than half a straightaway.
Gathering for a restart, Smith and the Edwardses were separated from fourth-place Falk by a pair of lapped machines. The top three took advantage of that situation pulling away as the race returned to green.
With Smith driving off into the distance again, the battle for second began to heat up. Danny Edwards Jr. took a look to the inside of his brother in Turns 1 and 2 on lap 82. Greg Edwards fought off that bid, but, a lap later, Danny Edwards Jr. was back at it. Greg Edwards remained tough in the outside lane, though, and cleared Danny on lap 85.
Just behind that brotherly scuffle, Wertz overtook Falk for fourth place. Before the pass was officially recorded, however, the fourth yellow flag flew as Godsey and Dean Shiflett locked horns in Turn 3. The incident sidelined both drivers and the field was momentarily brought to a halt along the backstretch as cleanup activities commenced.
The last of the race’s five caution flags appeared on the ensuing restart when Ross Clements spun in Turn 1.
Back under green for the last time, Smith again drove away from his pursuers, while the Edwards brothers resumed their battle for second. With Greg Edwards guarding the low lane, Danny Edwards Jr. had thoughts of swinging to the outside. As he looked high, however, Falk closed in and Danny tucked back in line.

On lap 96, Danny Edwards Jr. finally worked alongside Greg Edwards in Turn 4. After a lap of side-by-side racing, Danny inched ahead at the end of the 97th circuit. He cleared Greg on lap 98 and left the door open for Falk, who edged into third.
On lap 99, Greg Edwards regained the third spot from Falk, who suddenly found himself occupied by a challenge from Wertz.
At the front, Smith sailed to the checkers, finishing five lengths ahead of Danny Edwards Jr. His victory celebration was short-lived, though, as inspectors found unapproved rear springs on his car, resulting in his disqualification.
In the amended rundown, Danny Edwards Jr. was the winner, followed by Greg Edwards. Falk beat back Wertz’s bid off the final corner and nabbed third. Wertz was fourth, while Warren rounded out the top five.
Jeff Shiflett and Albert Falk were sixth and seventh, the final drivers to complete the entire distance. Matt Waltz, Mike Rudy and Clements were eighth, ninth and 10th, in that order, all one lap back.

In the evening’s other feature events:

Division points leader Paul Lubno started on the pole and led all the way for his third win of the season in the 40-lap Super 8 Motels/B&B Engines Grand Stock race.
Jammie Goode was quickest in time trials, lapping the .395-mile layout at 78.711 mph. Since he’d won the two previous races, however, Goode had to line up eighth. That left Lubno and Brandon Hinson as the front row occupants.
On the start, Lubno pulled ahead of Hinson as the field exited Turn 2 for the first time. Danny Harrell, the third-place starter, moved up a spot, while Hinson dropped back to third. Coming around to complete lap 1, fourth-place Tommy Sweeney got out of shape off Turn 4, briefly stacking the pack and allowing Lubno, Hinson and Harrell to drive away.
As the second circuit came to a close, Hinson went after Harrell for the runner-up position, taking the spot in Turns 1 and 2 on lap 3. While second place traded hands, Lubno opened a three-length margin. Goode, meanwhile, made his way into the top five.
Continuing to work his way toward the front, Goode bypassed Sweeney for fourth on lap 5 and swiped third from Harrell on lap 10. Within a couple circuits, he was hounding Hinson for second. He gained the position on lap 13, ducking under Hinson in Turn 2 and powering ahead on the backstretch.
The first yellow flag appeared on lap 15, erasing Lubno’s lead, which had grown to almost half a straightaway. Setting the lineup, Lubno, Goode, Hinson, Harrell and Henry Barnes made up the top five.
Back under green, Hinson tried to muscle his way to the inside of Goode as they reached Turn 1. The two made contact and sped on. While they scuffled, however, Lubno pulled away by four lengths.
It took Goode several laps to make up that lost ground. But, by lap 23, he was parked on the leader’s rear bumper and looking for an opening. Lubno, a longtime Langley veteran, refused to budge, though.
The second, and final, caution flag waved on lap 29. Getting ready for a restart, Brian Waters’ lapped machine separated Lubno and Goode from third-place Hinson.
As the race resumed, Lubno leaped out to a lead of almost three lengths. That margin stayed fairly consistent until the last five circuits when Goode began a push for the win.
Goode’s late-race charge came up short at the checkers as Lubno held on to win by a little more than a single car-length. Goode was second, followed by Hinson, Harrell and Robbie Parker.

Robbie Davis scored his second win in a 25-lapper for the Med Express Urgent Care Super Trucks, leading from pole to checkers.
Charlie Barclay set the fast time in qualifying, at 77.774 mph. As the winner of the last two races, though, he had to give up the pole and start on the outside of Row 4. Davis and Rick Potter made up the reconstituted front row.
As the race got under way, Davis motored out front, bringing Tommy Nixon and Troy Turnage along with him and dropping Potter back to fourth. Barclay emerged from the opening shuffle in sixth.
Davis and Nixon dashed away from the pack in the early going. By lap 4, they had put nearly half a straightaway between themselves and third-place Turnage. Meanwhile, Barclay was making steady progress. He took over fifth on lap 3, fourth on lap 5 and third on lap 6.
At the front, Nixon hammered on Davis for the lead. The aggressive tactics didn’t pay off, however, as Nixon soon developed a tire rub and smoke began to billow from the right-front of his truck. He gave up second place to Barclay on lap 12 and hit the pit lane on the following circuit.
Over the second half of the race, Davis was able to hold Barclay at bay. He fought off one final bid on the last lap and beat Barclay to the line by less than a truck-length. Hugo Belfiore, Turnage and Potter were third, fourth and fifth, respectively.
Nixon, who entered the race with a two-point edge in the standings, ended up 11th and surrendered the divisional lead to Davis.

Matt Hockaday moved out front on lap 5 and rolled to his fifth victory in the 25-lap E-Z Auto of Newport News UCAR feature. It was his second win in a row.
Robbie Salas paced a highly competitive qualifying session, nabbing the pole with a lap at 69.987 mph. Less than seven-tenths of a second separated first from 21st on the 22-car grid.
On the start, Salas faltered and gave up the lead to his front-row colleague, Mike Joyner. Hockaday tagged along with Joyner and took over second place, while Salas slipped to third.
Hockaday gained the lead on the fifth circuit. He drove under Joyner on the backstretch and pulled ahead as they exited Turn 4. Salas rushed to fill the void and came away with the second spot. Caught to the outside, Joyner was also overtaken by Renno Marchetti IV and Allen Dail before he found a place in line.

The only caution flag waved on lap 8.
When the race resumed, Hockaday jumped out to a four-length lead over Salas. Little by little, though, Salas chipped away at the margin. Just past the halfway mark, he had trimmed Hockaday’s advantage to just two lengths.
Before Salas could close the gap any further, he had to deal with a challenge from Dail, who had bypassed Marchetti for third on lap 12. With Salas’ attention diverted, Hockaday began to extend his lead again.
Hockaday had to withstand one more bit of drama on the way to Victory Lane. He was ahead by four car-lengths when Glenn Healy Jr. nearly spun in front of him in Turn 2 on lap 24. As Hockaday dodged Healy, Salas and Dail closed in from behind. Hockaday survived the near-miss, though, and sped on toward the checkers.
At the finish, Hockaday was the winner by two lengths over Salas. Dail was third to the line, followed by Marchetti and Dusty Connor.

Casey Sipe picked up his second victory of the season in the 30-lap Standard Welding Pro 6 race. He started on the pole, at 81.141 mph, and led every circuit.

James Williams, who posted his first series win on July 12, shared the front row with Sipe and grabbed a narrow lead as the initial green flag waved. When the field reached Turns 1 and 2 for the first time, though, Sipe battled back on the inside and surged out front.
By lap 10, Sipe had fashioned a four-length advantage over Williams, while third-place D.J. Watson had fallen almost half a straightaway behind the lead duo. That all changed when the only caution flag flew on lap 11 for debris.
Setting the lineup for the restart, Sipe was the leader, followed by Williams, Watson, Wesley Harris and David Phelps.
Back under green, Watson failed to come up to speed immediately and gave way to Harris. Just as Watson got going, Phelps dropped off the pace on the backstretch, further jumbling the running order. Up front, Sipe enjoyed a five-length lead over Williams, who was half a straightaway ahead of Harris.
By the finish, Sipe’s winning margin had swelled to almost a full straightaway over Williams. Harris, Watson and Warren Smigo rounded out the top five.
