Hampton, VA– The starting line-up for the 12thannual Hampton Heat 200 has finally been set and it’s Marietta, Georgia’s very own Cory Heim who will lead the twenty-six car field to the green later this evening. Heim’s 15.605-second lap (91.125 mph) was only .042 seconds faster than former track champion Greg Edwards who will share the front row. Jared Fryar, Bobby McCarty, and Danny Edwards will make up the fastest five cars.

“Feels really good man,” Heim said after qualifying. “We came here with a little bit of an unknown with this new racecar. I think it’s the third race on it now, it ran really good at Myrtle Beach. Got to thank Lee Pulliam Performance and Toyota Racing for a really good piece.

Heim went on to add what it’s going to take from behind the steering wheel to park the car in victory lane

“Strategy is going to play a key for sure with the tire breaks at lap hundred and one fifty,” Heim added. “That an unknown for me because I have never run this race before. It’s going to take a total team effort and me doing my job keeping the car in one piece and upfront.
