C. E. Falk, III Pulls Double Duty; Late Model Driver – Sprint Cup Mechanic
Charles Edward (C. E.) Falk, III got his start in ’06 running in the Hooters Pro Cup series (known now as the Cars X-1R Pro Cup) running six races with a best finish of eleventh. That following year Falk decided to race full-time in the Weekly Racing division, more specifically Langley Speedway. After a winless 2008 season Falk stepped his game up and won more than half on Langley’s Late Model feature events.
Falk, a four-time Langley Speedway track champion, has 49 total Late Model stock car wins. One of those win was the prestigious 2010 Denny Hamlin Short Track Showdown run at Richmond International Raceway; the race that puts some of the best late model stock driver on the same track in the “same cars” as top cup drivers. Falk also has seen victory lane in some of the largest late model stock car races within the region in his career, taking the checkers twice at the Hampton Heat 200 (Langley Speedway) & Toyota Danville 300 (South Boston).
I was unable to get back in touch with C.E. before the post of his interview so please excuse the lack of information about his move to Charlotte. I do know he has moved to Charlotte to help his uncles Sprint Cup team Hillman Racing as a suspension mechanic. As of right now he will run a part-time schedule at South Boston Speedway.
