Falk Holds On For Third Hampton Heat Victory

IMG_8371

Hampton, VA – Mother nature tried to play spoiler twice for us here at Langley Speedway this evening. As the largest race on Langley Speedway’s schedule saw 37 Late Model Stock Cars headed to Hampton, Virginia. We started this deal around 4:35 with qualifying time trials where local driver Matt Waltz grabbed yet another pole clocking in at 16.071. Deac McCaskill, yes thats right Deac McCaskill, took his machine and grabbed the outside pole with a time of 16.113 for his first official race at the speedway. Brayton Haws, Greg Edwards, and Woody Howard would round out your top five starters

As the race got the green green flag at 11:21 PM Matt Waltz immediately went to work clearing McCaskill on the entry of one. Waltz and McCaskill, two very good drivers, checked out early creating about an eight car lead over third place Haws. Both Greg Edwards and Smith would go to war for the fifth spot while some of your Langley Speedway regulars and out of town drivers waged war deep within the field. Positions six through seventeen were all nose to tail for quite a few laps while leaders started working through some lap traffic.

Hampton, Va – Let me ask you a few questions okay, Whats better $1? Yea that’s easy enough, $2 Whats better than one apple, assuming you like apples? Easy answer right, two apples What’s better than having one race car? If you haven’t caught on yet the answer is obvious, two race cars! For ever people have been saying two heads are better than one! Gives you four eyes, four hands, twenty fingers to work with! It’s like how group work was envisioned in college, you split the work load up so each person can focus on a smaller portion and provide better quality work!

This weekend, The Weekly Racer is extremely proud to be partnering up with Mark Rogers (@1goodolboy) & Race22 (www.race22.com // @race22) to bring our readers and fans some of the best coverage of Langley Speedway’s, and in my personal opinion, one of the top three biggest Late Model Stock Car races in the region this Saturday July 26th, 2014. I myself will have the honor of playing host to Race 22’s Five Star Body Interactive Race Coverage Lobby! If you have never checked something like this out you will not want to miss this! Acting just like a chat room, fans can send in questions, comments, their 2 cents about whats going on at the track. I will provide you with live time scoring, where the action is on the track, as well as a direct line to information handed out from the tower. Absolutely perfect for those who cannot make it to this event, as well as those who are there to interact with other fans!

Mark Rogers will be leading the charge down on pit road, helping to bring you guys as close to the action as humanly possible! I’m not lying either, its like you will be standing in turn four with him as the night goes on, he will be the go to go for machines involved in accidents on the track, getting information on drivers who run into mechanical issues, as well as keeping you updated visually!

I am beyond excited to be asked to help the guys out at Race22 with this event! What better way to bring you the best coverage available than with two guys who, well lets face it, have a small to medium size obsession with Late Model racing! Make sure to stay tuned here on The Weekly Racer site as well as our Facebook & Twitter as well has Race22.com for all of the times and links. Just a quick tie bit of information, this is a free service to you fans, and there is a mobile version so you can stay updated no matter where you are at on your smart phone.

Hampton, VA – Everyone deserves a night off during their season, specially on the eve of Langley Speedways biggest race of the season, for some it will be the biggest race of their career. With the Late Model Stock cars having the night off we looked to Langley’s Modified division to provide our weekly fix of stock car racing! In a division that has shown a higher average car count though out the 2014 season saw 19 Modified’s take to the track for qualifying time trials. Robbie Babb would be your top qualifier for the evening meaning he would get the honors of leading the field to the green flag for race number one!
