Matt Waltz Sets Fast Time in Prelude to the Heat

Hampton, VA – Matt Waltz set the fastest time in qualifying with the out of towners at Langley running a 16.113 second lap beating defending track champ Greg Edwards who ran a 16.176 second lap. In his out lap, Danny Edwards Jr broke his left front spindle on the car and his entire right front came off. He will not be able to make the race tonight as of now. Also, Phillip Morris blew his motor a little earlier on in final practice and is in the process of putting a borrowed motor from Peyton Sellers into his ride. Sellers switched to his backup car with the handling being so far off on his primary and managed to run a 16.293-second lap to put him 10th in the twenty car field.

Justin Kern caught up with Waltz in the pits, “It really didn’t feel all that great in qualifying but I mean watching everyone else it looked like everyone else had the same problem, not a lot of grip slipping and sliding all over the place. I gotta thank Waltz Engineering Sales, Davcon INC. as well we got a bunch of them up in the box tonight,  and Mulkey, Forbes, Reid & Barton, PLC for helping us out on the team here, happy to get on the pole for all the people and the crew”
