Hampton, VA – Langley Speedway officially closed out the 2014 season this past weekend with another eight division night. Champions were crowned in each division including the Enduro division which we did not cover. I have split these recaps again due to the fact there was so much going on throughout the day. It was a bitter-sweet moment when the final checkered flag waved knowing the season is official over.
Just like that the final 20 laps of the season for the Rhonda Clairborne Pro Wing Karts. Matt Leach was able to jump into the lead spot off of turn four coming to the checkered flag with a big push from Ryan Hudgins. The race would go caution free but not incident free as we had just one solo spin, his kart would remain under power and able to pull away.
It was very surprising how calm this race was given the fact these karts rely on the draft much like a super speedway in the cup series. The top nine cars ended up pulling away from Amanda Frye who was stuck in limbo pretty much – can’t catch the lead pack and has to wait for the karts behind her.
It was pretty much “smooth” sailing for the rest of the way, minus the one kart spin and the mix up in the back of the pack.
Even though Charlie-Ray Lorah came across the stripe in the third position it was enough to lock up his second Pro Wing champ kart title here at Langley Speedway.
