Philip Morris Sweeps Twin Late Model Stock Features at Langley Speedway; Extends Points Lead Over Division

Hampton, VA – Philip Morris continues to do Philip Morris things here in the Mid-Atlantic winning just about everything this weekend at Langley Speedway extending his points lead in the division.

Morris only needed one lap earlier in the afternoon to win the pole. His 15.541-second lap was good enough to beat Mark Wertz, Brenden Queen, Danny Edwards Jr., and Connor Hall, who rounded out the starting five drivers.

Race number one fell right in line with how the first twin races normally all. Drivers were falling in line, saving their cars and their tires. Morris, however, wasted zero time in the first 75-lap feature. He jumped out to an early lead and never looked back. Behind him was where all of the racing took place. Connor Hall and Brenden Queen looked to flex their muscles as the sun set over the speedway staying in or around the top five.

The one and only caution in race one would come on lap fifty-six allowing the field to catch back up to Morris. Philip, however, would not be fazed and continued his dominance as they went back green leading all seventy-five laps. Brenden Queen, Greg Edwards, Danny Edwards Jr., and Mark Wertz rounded out the top five for race one; Connor Hall finished in the eighth position, which earned him the pole in race two by virtue of the invert.

Race number two of the evening was once again everything that the second twin race lives up to. Aggressive driving, aggressive defending, wrecks, and anything else you can think of. With Morris winning the first race he would be forced to start in the eighth position, however, in the attempt to earn even more bonus points from NASCAR he elected to fall to the rear for race number two which almost cost him a racecar.

When the green flag was displayed it almost looked to be the Connor Hall saw with a guest appearance from Brenden Queen. Both drivers – Queen using the outside groove to his advantage – led a handful of laps while Morris fought his way back through the field. Morris’ night, however, almost took a literal turn for the worst after he and Greg Edwards made contact in turn two. Edwards would have to come down pit road to change a tire and Morris was going to be sent to the rear due to the contact but would come down pit road to fix some of the damage to his right front fender.

Morris would drive through the field and take the lead from Brenden Queen after he and Hall spent ten laps battling hard side by side. Once Morris took the lead it was lights out. The wins for Morris was number three and four on the season at Langley Speedway and extended his points lead in the Taylor Waste Service Late Model’s. It should be noted that Morris leaves this weekend leading the points at Langley Speedway, Dominion Raceway, and South Boston Speedway. He is more than likely leading National and Virginia State points with NASCAR when they are released.
