NASCAR Whelen All-American Series at Langley Speedway

Rolling Thunder Mods, championship battles highlight Saturday's program Thursday, September, 25, 2008

Five division champions will be crowned this Saturday, Sept. 27, as Langley Speedway plays host to USG/Wolf Contractors Night, the next-to-last event of the track's 2008 NASCAR Whelen All-American Series points season.

Saturday's lineup includes: Rolling Thunder Modified tour (75 laps); Bass Pro Shops Super Streets (50 laps); EZ Auto of Newport News UCARS (25 laps); Wolf Contractors Wolf Trucks (25 laps); and, Rhonnda Claiborne, Realtor HRKC Pro Winged Champ Karts (20 laps).

Gates open at 1 p.m. with afternoon practice running from 2 'til 4. The drivers meeting gets under way at 4:15, followed by qualifying at 4:30. Pre-race ceremonies begin at 6:55, while the Champ Karts lead off the evening's feature slate shortly after 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.

Due to foul weather, this evening's "test and tune" session has been called off.

• • •

Heading into this weekend's Super Street points finale, Ryan Nester holds a two-point edge over Jessica Wood in the championship battle, 522-520. While both drivers have scored one win this season (the first tiebreaker), Nester enjoys a 5-2 edge in second-place finishes (tiebreaker #2).

If Wood were to win Saturday's race, the tiebreaker would tip in her favor and she would take the title, even if Nester finished second in the season-ender. If Wood doesn't win, she could still swipe the crown by finishing two spots ahead of Nester.

• • •

In the UCAR division, Renno Marchetti IV enters Saturday's race with a 22-point lead over Matt Hockaday, 588-566. With a 6-2 advantage in race wins, Hockaday owns the tiebreaker, so Marchetti will need to win the championship outright. An 11th-place finish would be just enough.

• • •

The championship picture is crystal-clear in the Wolf Truck class. Jeff Sampson will wrap up the Pro Division title by simply starting Saturday's race, while Eric Schaffer has already clinched Semi-Pro Division honors.

• • •

In the HRKC Pro Winged Champ Kart class, Dannie Wyatt holds an eight-point lead over Adam Chalkley, 500-492. That's deceptive, though, because all drivers will be dropping their two-worst finishes (or missed races).

Currently, Wyatt would be dropping seventh- and 15th-place finishes for an adjusted total of 440. Chalkley would drop sixth- and seventh-place finishes for an adjusted total of 414.

If Chalkley were to win on Saturday, his season-ending points total, taking the drops into consideration, would be 464.

Wyatt's easiest path to the title, meanwhile, would leave him on the sidelines on Saturday. By not racing this weekend, Wyatt's two drops would total 22 points (the 15th-place finish plus zero for the missed race), leaving him with 478. Even if he chooses to compete, Wyatt will end up with at least 478 points (and the championship), regardless of where he might finish.

• • •

Spencer Saunders has won the last two Champ Kart races, so, by track rules, he'll start Saturday's race from no better than the eighth spot.

• • •

The 2008 points season ends on Saturday, Oct. 4, as NASCAR action continues at Langley Speedway with Hampton Roads Toyota Dealers Night. That evening's feature card includes: Crossroads Fuel Service Late Model Stock Cars, B&C Seafood Modifieds, Super 8 Motels/ B&B Engines Grand Stocks, Med Express Urgent Care Super Trucks and Peninsula Hardwood Mulch INEX Legends.

• • •

Three events make up Langley Speedway's "post-season" schedule:

• Saturday, Oct. 11 - The Third Annual Virginia State UCAR Championship/Super Street Showdown. Each division will run a 75-lap feature. Pro 6s, Wolf Trucks and Champ Karts will round out the program.

• Saturday, Oct. 18 - "The Night of Destruction." A full day of extreme novelty events, including favorites from the past and a few new crowd-pleasers.

• Friday, Nov. 7 - Langley Speedway's 2008 Awards Banquet. This year's gala returns to the Hellenic Community Center in Newport News, Va. Tickets are $45. Call the Speedway office at (757) 865-7223 for complete details.
