Langley Speedway Scheduled to Move Forward With Racing Tonight

Hampton, Va – After a line of strong storms moved through the Mid-Atlantic racing region overnight and forcing cancellation of two big events (Southside Speedway’s 75-lap Late Model feature & VMS $20,000 to win King of the Commonwealth) Larry King Law Langley Speedway is scheduled to go on as planned. Though most Virginian’s and folks from eastern North Carolina woke up to wet soggy grounds, the forecast for later this afternoon appears to be more ideal for some asphalt short track racing. With a mix of clouds and sun during the morning that will give way to cloudy skies later this afternoon, Hampton should see a high of 72 with winds SSW at 15 to 25 mph.

With the cancellation of Virginia Motor Speedway’s King of the Commonwealth, The Weekly Racer will switch its full coverage to Langley Speedway’s Courtyard Marriot Night which will feature a 50-lap Modified feature. 10-time champion Shawn Balluzzo opened the season with back-to-back victories in a wid pair of 40-lap twins. Can Balluzzo continue to dominate the series or will someone like Matt Carter or Jamie Sample be able to knock Balluzzo off the podium? Tune into our Twitter feed to find out later this evening starting at 4:30 PM EDT.
