Breakthrough Start For Falk...

Daytona Beach, Fla. --

· Jumps To Fifth Following Fourth Win

· Defending champion Virginia’s Philip Morris still out front



(June 9, 2009) – If the off season labor indicated future success, CE Falk III was pretty confident heading into the season. But he didn’t expect this.

The 22-year-old Charlotte, N.C., driver picked up his fourth win of the season this past weekend at Langley Speedway in Hampton, Va., and continued to move up the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series standings. His latest trip to Victory Lane pushed him up two spots to fifth.

“It’s just a credit to our team and what they’ve been doing,” Falk said. “It’s incredible for sure. I thought it would be a good season, but I didn’t expect four wins by June.”

Falk, from Virginia Beach, Va., also has five runner-up finishes among his 10 races at Langley, South Boston (Va.) Speedway and Caraway Speedway in Asheboro, N.C. He is second in the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Virginia state standings behind Philip Morris.

The Ruckersville, Va., driver has seven wins in 12 starts and continues to lead the national points with 535 points. Keith Rocco is second with 505 points running at Connecticut’s Waterford Speedbowl, Thompson International Speedway and Stafford Motor Speedway.

Nebraska’s Bill Leighton is third with 480, racing at I-80 Speedway and Junction Motor Speedway. Nick Joanides, the points leader at Toyota Speedway at Irwindale (Calif.), is fourth with 410 points.

And Falk has moved up right on their heels.

“It’s been a lot of hard work and determination,” said Falk, who finished fourth in Virginia last season. “Last year, it seems we couldn’t run any better than second. As happy as I was with 21 top fives last year, I wanted the wins. We upped everything. I pushed my motor man to get better power. Me and my crew chief (Phil Warren) worked really hard over the winter to come up with some combinations this year. Our hard work is paying off.

“We’ve been fortunate when our car has been off to run second or still get the win.”

Falk opened the season in March with a second to Morris at South Boston. He returned to the track the first weekend of April for a twin feature, finishing fourth and second. Two weeks later, Falk won his first feature at Langley, setting off his current run that has seen him pick up four victories in six starts.

Falk’s first full season running a Late Model came in 2007 after running a partial schedule the year before along with racing in the ProCup touring series. Falk ran a full season at South Boston in 2007, recording one win. He didn’t have any wins last year but was consistently in the top five week-in and week-out.

He credits his dad and Warren for getting the car ready in Virginia Beach while he pursues a business management degree at the University of North Carolina-Charlotte. Falk’s younger brother, Wesley, 21, also races with him at Langley.

Falk said that a pair of new sponsors this year – Towne Banke from the Hampton Roads, Va., area and Horsepower Tee Shot Tour – have enabled him to get some upgraded racing parts.

“They’ve really stepped up and helped me this year,” Falk said. “That’s all you can really ask for as a race car driver. Then it’s on your shoulders to make sure you do the job.”

The NASCAR Whelen All-American Series champion also earns a secure spot in the NASCAR Toyota All-Star Showdown, to be held at the Toyota Speedway at Irwindale in 2010.

Under the points structure for the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series, the race winner will receive two points for every car in the event up to 23 cars. Second place will receive two fewer points, and so-on through the field. For example, if there are 23 cars, the winner receives 46 points, second gets 44 and third 42. If there are 15 cars, the winner receives 30 points, second gets 28 and third 26. Race winners receive an additional five bonus points.
