NASCAR Whelen All-American Series at Langley Speedway -

Casey Cycle City Night Race Report Saturday, Oct. 3, 2009

Jonathan Mullett took the lead on lap 31 and drove on to his first victory of the season in the Casey Cycle City 50 for the Atlantic Power Sweeping Super Streets, the featured event of Saturday evening’s NASCAR Whelen All-American Series program at Langley Speedway.
Randy Akers nabbed the pole in afternoon time trials, lapping the .395-mile oval at 74.732 mph. Larry Venable was second-quickest and shared the front row with Akers. Randy Sample, who only needed to take the green flag to wrap up the ‘09 championship, started third, alongside Mullett. Jeff Shannon completed the top five on the starting grid.
As the race got under way, Akers jumped out front, clearing Venable before the field reached Turn 1 and leaving the inside lane open for Sample, Shannon and Mullett. Caught on the outside, Venable dropped to fifth before finding a place in line.
Only four laps into the event, the front five had already put nearly half a straightaway between themselves and sixth-place Rod Busitzky.
As Akers began to ease away from his pursuers, the second-place battle between Sample and Shannon heated up on lap 16. In Turn 2, they skittered up the track and Mullett pounced, driving under and past both cars to take over second. Shannon came away from the exchange in third. Meanwhile, Akers widened his lead to five lengths.
The field was bunched when the first caution flag appeared on lap 25. The interruption was a help to Sample, who was about to give up the fourth spot to Venable.
Back under green, third-place Shannon immediately went on the attack. He drove under Mullett on the backstretch and nosed ahead at the line. Continuing his march toward the front, he overtook Akers on lap 27, edging out front at the flagstand. He completed the pass on the following circuit and brought Mullett along with him, kicking Akers back to third.
Shannon’s stay at the front was short-lived, however, as he lost an engine, in impressive fashion, at the end of the front straightaway as he began lap 31. With Shannon heading for the sidelines, the top spot passed to Mullett. Akers, Sample, Venable and Busitzky lined up behind the new leader as the field prepared for a restart.
As the race resumed, Mullett gained a two-length edge over Akers. He more than doubled that margin on lap 32 as Sample hounded Akers for the second position.
Soon, Akers broke free from Sample, who was beginning to slip into Venable’s clutches. Mullett, meanwhile, enjoyed a fairly stable four-length advantage.
At the checkers, Mullett still maintained that four-length edge and won by 0.826-second over Akers. Venable was third, having slipped by Sample on lap 47. Busitzky rounded out the top five. John Foster Jr., Justin Brown, Sean Calway, Doug Woodyard and Michael Farmer made up the second five, while Harry VanGuilder came home 11th, the last driver on the lead lap.
In the final Super Street standings, pending official verification, Sample claimed the title by 30 over Mullett, 598-568. Shannon and Venable were third and fourth, respectively.

In the evening’s other feature events:

In the 25-lap Med Express Urgent Care Super Truck feature, Robbie Davis continued his late-season roll, leading flag-to-flag for his fifth win in a row.
Davis started on the pole, at 74.779 mph, and demonstrated his dominance in the early going. By lap 4, he had already pulled away from division points leader Tommy Nixon by nearly half a straightaway. And the margin was growing.
Behind Davis and Nixon, Charlie Barclay fought to hold off Brad Adams for the third spot. Adams pulled off the pass on lap 11, only to see the move negated when the first caution flag waved. He kept at it, though, and grabbed third from Barclay on the restart following the second caution flag.
The race was slowed by two more yellow flags, at laps 14 and 17, keeping the field bunched.
On the final restart, Davis quickly drove away from Nixon by nearly three lengths as Adams moved up to challenge for second place. Soon, though, Nixon eased away from Adams and closed ground on the leader.
By lap 21, Nixon was within half a length of Davis’ tailgate. That’s as close as he would get, however, as Davis held on to win by 0.272-second. Adams was third to the line, followed by Barclay and Paul Hogge Sr.
Nixon will bring a 24-point lead over Davis into next Saturday’s Super Truck finale, 526-502. Since Davis’ fifth win has tilted the tiebreaker in his favor, Nixon will have to win the title outright, which he can do by finishing 12th or better.

The Casey Cycle City INEX Legends race featured seven lead changes among four drivers. At the end, though, Brad Hancock came out on top, scoring his division-best sixth win of the season.
Hancock qualified on the pole, at 78.008 mph, but gave way to his front-row partner, Rette Causey, on the opening lap. Hancock quickly slipped in line on Causey’s bumper, followed by Joe Hendricks Jr., Steve Keesee and Chris Raiford.
Hancock tailed Causey for a couple circuits, then moved back out front on lap 3. By lap 7, Hancock, Causey and Hendricks were locked in a nose-to-tail battle, while Keesee watched from two lengths back.
On lap 8, Keesee, who clinched the ‘09 division title when he took the green flag, got into the fray, swiping the third spot from Hendricks as they raced off Turn 4. At the crossed flags, the front four were bumper-to-bumper.
The first caution flag appeared on lap 15. Setting the lineup, Hancock was the leader, followed by Causey, Keesee, Hendricks and Spencer Saunders.
Back under green, Causey scooted past Hancock to retake the lead as they headed into Turn 1. A lap later, Hancock returned the favor and left the lane open for Keesee, Hendricks and Saunders, dropping Causey to fifth.
On lap 19, Keesee motored under Hancock in Turn 1 and pulled ahead, bringing Hendricks and Saunders with him.
The leaderboard changed again on lap 21 as Hendricks pushed his machine to the front for the first time. Saunders took over second, while Hancock moved up to third and Causey grabbed fourth.
In search of his first victory, Hendricks showed the way as the white flag waved. Heading into Turn 1, though, Saunders made a strong bid for the lead and the two front-runners locked horns and spun, prompting a caution flag and setting up a “green-white-checkered” sprint.
As Hendricks retreated to the back of the pack and Saunders turned into the pits, Hancock assumed the lead with Causey, Keesee, Jamie Price and Raiford in tow.
On the final restart, Hancock quickly forged a two-length edge, then held on as Causey tried to rally. At the finish, Hancock was the winner by 0.191-second. Causey was second, followed by Keesee. Hendricks rebounded from the tangle with Saunders to salvage fourth place, while Price took fifth.
In the final division standings, Keesee outpointed Price by 34, 558-524, to claim the title. Hancock was third, followed by Saunders and Raiford.

It’s likely that Adam Florian won’t be the 2009 EZ Auto of Newport News UCAR champion. A couple DNFs during the course of the season saw to that. So, if he can’t win the title, Florian is aiming to do the next best thing and win everything else.
Starting on the pole, with a new division record (71.735 mph), Florian led all the way and picked up his eighth win of the year in Saturday evening’s 25-lapper.
Points leader Randy Prillaman joined Florian on Row 1 for the start of the event, but slipped back a spot as the green flag waved. Allen Dail, who lined up third, moved into second on the opening lap.
The yellow flag made a early appearance, on lap 2, for a five-car melee in the middle of Turns 1 and 2. Gathering for a restart, Florian was the leader, followed by Dail, Prillaman, Austin Dodge and Michael Joyner.
Back under green, Florian led a three-car breakaway at the head of the field. Behind them, cars were stacking up two- and three-deep, jousting for position. Points contender Chris Hildebrand emerged from the shuffle in fifth place.
The only other caution flag flew on lap 5 for a single-car mishap in Turn 2.
As the race resumed, Florian eked out a slim margin over Dail. Deeper in the field, Hildebrand slipped by Dodge for fourth, bringing Renno Marchetti IV and Mike Chapman along with him. Chapman soon overtook Marchetti to crack the top five.
At the front, Florian extended his lead over Dail, who was feeling pressure from Prillaman. Just past the halfway mark, Florian’s advantage stood at almost half a straightaway.
Closing in on the finish, Florian approached a gaggle of slower machines, racing for position. Rather than risk a headlong plunge into traffic, Florian wisely backed off his pace a bit and cruised to the checkered flag.
At the end, Florian was the winner by 1.577 seconds — about five lengths — over Dail. Prillaman was third, followed by Hildebrand and Chapman.
Prillaman will carry a 16-point lead, 642-626, over Hildebrand into next Saturday’s UCAR points finale. He’ll clinch the ‘09 crown by finishing ninth or better.

Doug Warren started on the pole, at 79.995 mph, and paced the field from wire-to-wire for his second win of the year in the 30-lap points finale for the Standard Welding Pro 6 division.
Warren Smigo held the runner-up spot in the opening laps. Almost immediately, though, officials detected a leak from his car and black-flagged him to the pits. He answered the call on lap 7 and James Murphy moved up to second.
Behind Warren and Murphy, Lindsay Bryant struggled to hold off Casey Sipe for third. Sipe cleared the Bryant machine on lap 10 and set off after Murphy. Meanwhile, Warren had widened his lead to over half a straightaway.
Sipe, who had already clinched the ‘09 Pro 6 title, swiped second place from Murphy on lap 14. Bryant slipped by Murphy for third on lap 16.
The first caution flag flew on lap 18 for a two-car incident in Turn 1. Another yellow flag quickly followed on the ensuing restart.
Back under green, Warren forged a two-length edge over Sipe. Over the remaining circuits, he added another length to the margin, easily holding Sipe at bay.
At the finish, Warren was the winner by 0.703-second — about three lengths. Sipe was second, followed by Bryant, Matt Mullins and Murphy.
In the final Pro 6 standings, Sipe earned the championship, outpointing Bryant by 78, 544-466. Bobby Hall, Carter Sipe and Smigo were third through fifth, respectively, pending official verification.

Mike Ganoe notched his fourth victory of the season in a 50-lapper for the Larry King Legal Services Enduros and overtook Wayne Groome to claim the division championship.
Ganoe started on the pole, at 70.746 mph, and led laps 1 and 2 before giving way to Tony Spivey. On lap 10, Ganoe regained the top spot and set sail. By the finish, he had lapped all but the second-place machine, winning by three-quarters of a lap.
Groome, meanwhile, needed to finish either in front of or right behind Ganoe to take the title. Instead, he struggled to a 13th-place finish, finally parking his car on lap 47.
In the final Enduro standings, Ganoe claimed the championship by 20 over Groome, 268-248. Spivey was just behind Groome, in third, with 246.
