Hampton, VA – With Mother Nature playing spoiler last weekend for most of the Mid-Atlantic region, the IMCA style Modified’s that run at Langley Speedway had to put their season opener on hold for a week. However, with warm temperatures and sunshine in the forecast all day race fans in the Hampton Roads area should be set for a wonderful night of racing.

After missing their season opener last week, nine-time series champion Shawn Balluzzo will begin not only his title defense but also his hunt for an unprecedented tenth series title. The IMCA style modifed’s will headline Pepsi Night with twin 30-lap features. Along with the Modified’s race fans will enjoy exciting action from the Winged Champ Karts, INEX Bando, and Legends division, Super Trucks and the Grand Stocks.

Balluzzo’s title hunt will not be easy, however. As this year as he will have the likes of Matt Carter and Bobby Gery – who all showed increasing speed at the conclusion of last season – to deal with as they will all be competing for wins. No official word if Balluzzo’s longtime “nemesis” if you will Robbie Babb will be back competing full time this year as rumor has it he is going to be running the SMRS Tour. Not to mention these division veterans will have to deal with some younger talent this year as both Brad Adams and Matt Morgan look to make a name for themselves in the open-wheeled division.

Racing is set to get underway at 7:00 PM so make sure to pack the car up and head on out to the speedway. If you cant make it follow us all night on Twitter (@theweeklyracer)
