Hampton, VA --

NASCAR Whelen All-American Series at Langley Speedway

Five feature events are planned for this Saturday, Aug. 30, as Langley Speedway continues its 2008 NASCAR Whelen All-American Series campaign with Fire/EMS Night presented by Casey Cycle City and national series sponsor Whelen Engineering.

Saturday's Labor Day Weekend slate includes: Crossroads Fuel Service Late Model Stock Cars (100 laps); B&C Seafood Modifieds (50 laps); Bass Pro Shops Super Streets (50 laps); Peninsula Hardwood Mulch INEX Legends (25 laps); and, Wolf Contractors Wolf Trucks (25 laps).

Gates open at 1 p.m. and afternoon practice gets under way at 2. The drivers meeting is scheduled for 4:15, followed by time trials at 4:30. Pre-race ceremonies, highlighted by parade laps featuring local fire and rescue vehicles, start at 6:55. The racing program begins shortly after 7 with the INEX Legends in the leadoff spot.

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.

For this Saturday's program, all fire and EMS personnel in uniform will be admitted free. Others will receive a $2 discount by displaying their badges.

Due to inclement weather, this evening's open practice session has been canceled.

Langley Speedway's "Wacky Wednesdays" program also fell victim to the elements last night. The schedule is set to resume on Sept. 3.
The popular event features street cars in 1-on-1 drag races (for one lap around the track), "Time Attacks" (solo runs against the clock) and burnout contests.
Gates open at 5:30 p.m. and the fun gets under way 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.

The first 500 people through the gates this Saturday will be entered in a drawing for four tickets to Busch Gardens in Williamsburg, Va.

While Philip Morris struggled to find the handle at Langley Speedway in last Saturday's LMSC Twin 100s, Iowa dirt-tracker Brian Harris scored two wins and a second-place finish last weekend and leaped from third to first in the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series national top 500.

With the NASCAR points season beginning to wind down, Harris holds a 15-point edge over Morris and Marty Ward in the chase for this year's national title. Harris has accumulated 922 points and Morris and Ward have both tallied 907.

Local drivers in the national rankings include: C.E. Falk (25th); Greg Edwards (66th); Danny Edwards Jr. (104th); Jeff Shiflett (186th); Nick Smith (202nd); Mark Wertz (296th); Dean Shiflett (306th); Matt Waltz (386th); and, Shawn Balluzzo (494th).

In the Virginia state championship standings, Morris has all but wrapped up the crown. He enjoys a 274-point edge over Davin Scites. Both are regular competitors at Motor Mile Speedway in Radford.

Among local entries in the Virginia top 20, Falk is fourth and Greg Edwards is sixth. Danny Edwards Jr. ranks 11th, while Jeff Shiflett and Smith check in at 17th and 20th, respectively.

Langley Speedway will be closed on Saturday, Sept. 6, in deference to NASCAR Sprint Cup activities at Richmond International Raceway. Also, there will be no open "test and tune" session on Thursday, Sept. 4.

Local NASCAR action resumes at the Hampton oval on Saturday, Sept. 13, with Ladies Night presented by the Hampton Roads Toyota Dealers. General admission tickets for all ladies are just $5.

That evening's six-race bill includes: B&C Seafood Modifieds, Bass Pro Shops Super Streets, Med Express Urgent Care Super Trucks (in a 40-lapper), Peninsula Hardwood Mulch INEX Legends, E-Z Auto of Newport News UCARS and Standard Welding Pro 6s.
