Daniel Silvestri Goes Two-for-Two in the Legends Division Over the Weekend; Ryley Music Leads Every Lap En Route to Bando Win

Hampton, VA – After capturing the pole, Ryley Music didn’t look to slow down when race time came. Jacob Derrick, Wyatt Philyaw, Logan Clark, Aaliyah Paynter, and Andrey Morrero rounded out the field. The green flag flew and Music took off to the lead early. The only move of the race was on lap two as Philyaw took second from Derrick. Paynter looked to make a move on Clark for fourth but was unable to make it stick. Ryley Music would go on to lead every lap of the race to pick up the win. Wyatt Philyaw, Jacob Derrick, Logan Clark, Aaliyah Paynter, and Andrey Marrero were you’re finishing lineup.

Daniel Silvestri picked up the pole for the Cycle City Corp Legends. Ryan Matthews, Conner Jones, Spencer Saunders, and Devon Courtney rounded out your starting five. Green flag flew and Silvestri also took off to an early lead while two time and defending race winner Ryan Matthews fell back to the fifth position. Matthews battled his way past Courtney and Jones to make his way back to the third position. With 10 laps complete Saunders began to put the pressure on Silvestri for the lead. Lap traffic came into play between the leaders as Saunders found his way to Silvestri’s back bumper once again.

Saunders with multiple attempts at taking the lead just couldn’t manage to get the car to stick. Lap 21 came up in lights and Saunders finally got the opportunity to stick his nose to the inside of Silvestri in turn two and took the lead. Silvestri took no time to recover and the very next lap, he took the lead right back from Saunders and put a gap between the two. The checkered flag flew and Daniel Silvestri picked up his first ever win here at Langley Speedway – it was Silvestri’s second Legend win of the weekend after finding victory lane the night before at Southside Speedway. Spencer Saunders, Ryan Matthews, Conner Jones and Devon Courtney were your top five finishers.

Dillon Spain Wins in Front of Big Field at Langley Speedway

Hampton, VA – The Cycle City Corp Legends continued their good car count on Saturday night with seventeen cars showing up. Tommy Jackson Jr, Sparky West, and Dillon Spain all made their first trip back to Larry King Law’s Langley Speedway after taking heavy damage on opening night.

Legends rookie Cody Carlton stayed hot laying down an 18.127-second lap for the pole with points leader Brian May missing the top spot by just .005. On lap seven a big pile up happened involving multiple cars, ending the night for a few drivers. Carlton kept the lead until after the second caution of the race involving him and Spencer Saunders which ended Carlton’s night.

Off the restart, Spain took the lead for ten laps until Saunders took it back on lap 18. After taking the green flag both drivers raced hard for the win, exchanging the lead several times almost like they were on a dirt track. Coming to the checkers Spain went deep into turn three making contact and send Saunders around and grabbing the win. Saunders would end up in 6th place.

 

In the Cycle City Corp Bandoleros, Jacob Putman picked up his second win of the year at Langley after a clean race up front with Autumn Weaver. Both drivers are also heading down to Charlotte Motor Speedway to take on the Bojangles’ Summer Shootout on their 1/5th-mile track. Further back in the field there was some beating and banging out on the track leading to some frustrated drivers after the race but cooler heads eventually prevailed.

 

Tyler Baker earned his second victory in a row as well as the season this past weekend in the Bojangle Enurdos. Bakers also took the points lead from defending Langley & East Carolina champion, Richard Quinn, by just three points. Austin Davis was the lucky one start on the pole position as the Eduro drivers immediatly pull pills for starting order. Did not take long for Baker to work his way up to the front and that is where he would stay for most of the 30-lap feature.

Richard Ellis, who alos competes in the Truck division, stayed hot on Bakers trails for most of the night beore his night ended suddenly – mechanical problems plauged the #41 Honda who needed a push off the track just before one of the races restarts. Once the feature got back under way, sans Ellis, Rodney Davis was on the charge for hte race lead. He would pull within about two car lengths before running out of laps. Hiby, Masingo, A. Davis would round out the top five finishers.

Woody Howard Wins INEX Legend Feature on Opening Night at Langley Speedway – Cole Bruce Goes Flag to Flag in Bando Race

Hampton, VA – Tommy Jackson Jr. picked began the 2017 season much like he ended the 2016 season – fast. Jackson was the fastest car in time trial qualifying for Saturday night’s Pomoco Night at the Race 25-lap INEX Legends feature. Posting a time of 18.096 or 78.581 mph on average he would lead Cody Carlton (R), Woody Howard, Brian May and Dillon Spain and thirteen other drivers to the green flag in one of the largest Legends races in a few years.

It did not take long for things to get crazy, as half the field was loose coming off turn two. Some drivers were saying after the race there was oil or something all over the track. One car at least looped it around, and was able to continue, while other cars took evasive maneuvers to avoid any damage before the race complete a lap. Just as we thought we were clear and were going to stay green the leaders run into big trouble going into three that saw Tommy Jackson, Dillon Spain, Cody Carlton and Sparky West in the wall. Carlton was the only car able to drive away.

The incident would hand the lead over to Woody Howard and Mason Diaz for the restart. Diaz, who runs primarily in the Legends and Pro Late Model division at Southern National in North Carolina, gave the veteran driver just about all he could handle for all twenty-five laps. Given the experience, Howard had not only in the car, but around the track you have to give a ton of credit to Diaz coming to a new track and running like that for the lead. Brian May and Spencer Saunders both moved up due to the wreckage and tried to hang tough but Howard and Diaz were in a league of their own all night. Howard would go on to win the first race of the season being credited with leading every lap.

“As soon as they drop the flag going into turn one and I noticed there was oil all in the bottom grove,” Howard said in victory lane. “Luckily I was able to straddle it and get below it which gave me a good run off the corner. Hate to see it for Tommy and all those guys, I was really looking forward to racing with them, I mean, they’re tough competition so I might not be sitting had they not wrecked out.”

Cole Bruce celebrates his flag to flag win as Langley Speedway re-opens for the 2017 racing season. (Shawn Dulin/TheWeeklyRacer.com)

Cole Bruce started his 2017 season of very strong in the tracks very first race since re-opening its doors. Setting the fastest time in the eight-car field with a 21.548 second lap of record or 66.976 mph on average. Bruce wasted no time to take the early lead once the green flag was displayed to the field and he never looked back.

Bruce was challenged once towards the end of the race after Bradley Kilby, who started fifth on the grid was able to drive up to the back bumper of Bruce but could not make a pass happen. The most entertaining part of the race was the side-by-side battle for the fourth position between the #3 of Jacob Putman and the #18 of Autumn Weaver. The two would battle door to door for over half the race with Putman gaining the slight advantage on the low line as it was the shorter distance around the almost 4/10-mile flat track.
