Langley Speedway: 4CDL.com TNCC Night – LIVE on Twitter (@theweeklyracer)
Hampton, VA – With the Late Model’s off this weekend we will turn most of our attention to the rumbling , ground pounding sound of the modifieds. Running their first set of twins this season 7-time track champ, Shawn Balluzzo, will look to extend his dominance on the season. Balluzzo told us earlier this season they are really hunting for that Div. II National Title so every win will count. Balluzzo has really taken to the road this season to help his chances, running at South Boston and East Carolina in addition to his home track. Being blatantly honest here the 48 team has struggle some kind of bad at SoBo somehow always running into either motor or distributor troubles.
However, the past is the past right? Balluzzo is coming into this weekend with two victories on the road sweeping the twin bill down at East Carolina and looking to do the same tonight. He will have to be on is toes as Jon Largena – who only ran a very limited schedule last year – has really started to get a handle on these much more powerful machines. Watch out for the black and white number 4 to be up there in contention for the win.
Now, just because the Mods will be the “premier” division tonight according to NASCAR & Langley Speedway, this will not take away from plenty more great racing. The Super Streets will return after their thrilling finish that ended with race leader Landon Abbott nose first on the back stretch and his teammate went on to win. Certainly not how either of them wanted that race to end! It would also be a good idea to keep an eye on both the 21 & 24, both still winless in 2015… but seriously its only a matter of time!
Jesse Jones will also have the chance to extend his streak to FOUR! Thats right the four-peat is on the line tonight and I can tell you it won’t be easy. Eric Schaffer and Jones put on probably the second best race of the night last week with a very late race pass that gave Jones the victory by a quarter of a bumper. Keep your eyes up front on the #3 and #5, one thing I can promise you is both of them want to end up in victory lane but sadly there is only room for one!
The wing champ karts and Bando’s will both return to the track as they will help kick things off this evening with the annual HRKC parade laps to show the fans where these drivers get their start! A full schedule of the days events can be found bellow! Make sure to tune in to @theweeklyracer around 4:30 PM EDT for LIVE coverage.
