Hampton, VA --
USARacing Pro Cup Series at Langley Speedway
Persistent showers, which moved into the area late in the afternoon, have caused the postponement of Saturday evening's Hampton Virginia/Honor Flight 250 for the USARacing Pro Cup Series. The event has been rescheduled for tomorrow at 2 p.m.
Front gates open at 10 a.m. Short practices for the Atlantic Power Sweeping Super Streets and EZ Auto of Newport News UCARs begin at 12 noon and wrap up at 12:25 p.m. An autograph session with the Pro Cup drivers gets under way at 12:45, while pre-race festivities commence at 1:30. The Hampton Virginia/Honor Flight 250 Pro Cup race is slated for a 2 p.m. start. Super Street and UCAR 40-lappers will follow.
Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for kids, 6-12. "Little Race Fans" (under 6) are admitted free when accompanied by an adult. Military personnel in uniform are also admitted free. Military personnel in civvies (active-duty or retired, with ID) and senior citizens (60+, with ID) receive a $2 discount off the regular adult ticket price.
With Pro Cup qualifying falling victim to the elements, the starting lineup for tomorrow's race was determined by the current car owner standings. Clay Rogers, who picked up the win when the series visited Langley in May, will launch from the pole position. Bobby Gill will share the front row with Rogers. The series' most recent winner, Brandon Ward, will start third, alongside Drew Herring. Rookie driver Lucas Ransone, the runner-up at Langley in May, goes off fifth on the 22-car grid.
Conventional Super Street and UCAR time trials were also claimed by the foul weather. To produce starting lineups for those divisions, officials took the combined results of afternoon practice rounds. Ryan Nester, seeking his ninth win in nine starts, topped the Super Street speed chart, at 73.958 mph. He'll share the front row with Jeff Shannon, followed by Steve Dill, Larry Venable and Jeramie Wood.
In the UCAR class, Adam Florian turned the quickest practice lap, at 70.581 mph. Last week's winner, Allen Dail, was second-fastest, while points leader Randy Prillaman, Johnny Pereira and Chris Hildebrand complete the top five. When the rains came, some drivers loaded their cars and left the track. Those drivers who removed their cars from the pits will have to fall to the back of the pack for the start of tomorrow's races.
