Hampton, VA --

NASCAR Whelen All-American Series at Langley Speedway

Langley Speedway reaches the halfway mark of its 2009 NASCAR Whelen All-American Series campaign in grand style this Saturday, July 11, when the track teams up with the City of Hampton to present the Second Annual Hampton Heat 200.

The featured 200-lapper is the biggest race on the Crossroads Fuel Service Late Model Stock Car calendar, offering total posted awards of $32,670 with a winner's share of $10,000. The event is part of the city's quadricentennial celebration, which culminates in 2010.

In addition to The 200, Saturday's lineup includes: Atlantic Power Sweeping Super Streets (50 laps); Casey Cycle City INEX Legends (25 laps); EZ Auto of Newport News UCARs (25 laps); and, Rhonnda Claiborne, Realtor HRKC Pro Winged Champ Karts (20 laps).

Pit gates open on Saturday at 9 a.m. and LMSC inspections begin at 9:30. A Late Model drivers and crew chiefs meeting is slated for 10:45 with practice getting under way at 12 noon.

Front gates open at 1 p.m. From 2 'til 4, the support divisions will join the practice rotation. A drivers meeting for all divisions is scheduled for 4, followed by support division time trials at 4:30.

Pre-qualifying inspections for Late Models commence at 4:45. Hampton Heat 200 pole qualifying starts at approximately 5:45. Pre-race ceremonies begin at 6:30, while the Champ Karts lead off the feature racing program, 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.

The Speedway will hold its regular, weekly "test and tune" session on Thursday, July 9. Gates open at 5 p.m. and practice begins at 6. Pit admission is $10. There is no charge to watch from the grandstands.

• • •

The Speedway's "Wacky Wednesdays" series continues this evening. The popular mid-week program features One-on-One Drags (one lap match races), "Time Attacks" (solo runs against the clock) and a Burnout contest.

Gates open at 6 p.m. A drivers meeting is scheduled for 7 and the fun gets going at 7:15. Tickets are just $5 and "Little Race Fans" (under 6) are admitted free when accompanied by an adult. Pit passes are $15.

Late Model points leader C.E. Falk has jumped to fifth in the latest NASCAR Whelen All-American Series national Top 500. Keith Rocco, who competes at a trio of Connecticut speedways, continues to hold down first place, followed by Philip Morris of Motor Mile Speedway in Radford, Va.

Other Langley regulars in the Top 500 include: Danny Edwards Jr. (141st); Greg Edwards (221st); Woody Howard (234th); Mark Wertz (265th); Wesley Falk (297th); Jeff Shiflett (351st); and, Shawn Balluzzo (372nd).

In the Virginia state points rundown, Falk is third, trailing Morris and Nick Smith. Danny Edwards Jr. checks in at 17th.

Hampton's Nick Smith was last year's Hampton Heat 200 winner and is expected to be on hand to defend his title this Saturday. He has teamed up with Richmond-area car owner Dave Atkinson for the full '09 campaign at South Boston Speedway and has posted three wins. He is currently ranked 12th in the Top 500.

A victory in Saturday's main event would be quite an accomplishment for Smith, coming on the heels of his wire-to-wire win in last Friday's Bailey's 200 at SoBo.

NASCAR action continues at Langley Speedway on Saturday, July 18, with Med Express Urgent Care Night. The lineup includes: Crossroads Fuel Service Late Model Stock Cars, B&C Seafood Modifieds, Old Point National Bank Grand Stocks, Med Express Super Trucks and Wolf Trucks.

A longtime member of the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series, Langley Speedway is a .395-mile, slightly-banked oval. The track is located at 11 Dale Lemonds Dr., off North Armistead Ave., in Hampton, Va.
