C.E. Falk Wins Pole for 2017 Hampton Heat at Langley Speedway

CE Falk works through turn two in final practice at Langley Speedway July 22, 2017 for the 9th Annual Hampton Heat.

Hampton, VA – Thirty-one cars hit the slick pavement of Larry King Law’s Langley Speedway for their two timed qualifying laps. Philip Morris went out early in the session and held the provisional pole with a 16.016-second lap. Philip’s time looked to be enough to earn him his first pole start in Hampton Heat history until Falk laid down a 16.007 (88.836 MPH) in his first lap. Morris would be pushed to second with Nick Smith, Timothy Peters, and Matt Waltz rounded out the top five.

In the four support divisions here at Langley this weekend, Bradley Kilby, who has been on a hot streak here at Langley this summer earned the pole in the Cycle City Corps Legends with a lap of record of 22.145. Tommy Sweeney, winner the last time out, grabbed the pole with an 18.501. Tommy Jackson, Jr. snagged the pole in the thirteen-car Legends field. The Cycle City Corp Legends feature will be an INEX National qualifier. Travis Wall earned the pole in the Riverside Paper Pro 6 with a time of 17.747.

Peyton Sellers Sets Fast Time Early in Friday Afternoon Practice in Preparation for Hampton Heat

Hampton, VA – The Hampton Roads area lived up to the name of the races this afternoon as twenty-five Late Models converged on Larry King Law’s Langley Speedway for the four-hour open test session before the 9th annual Hampton Heat. With temps in the upper 90’s and the heat index near the 110’s, teams worked to get a solid notebook for tomorrow’s 200-lap, $10,000 to pay race.

Peyton Sellers of Danville, Virginia, set the fastest time of the entire practice session earlier in the day that proved to be untouchable as the afternoon continued. Sellers laid his 16.238 (87.527 mph) second lap down in just his third of forty-five circuits around the .395-mile oval. Two other South Boston native drivers made up the fastest three cars as Timothy Peters (16.264) found his fastest lap on his last lap of practice. Current VA Triple Crown winner, and defending race winner when you think about it, Phillip Morris (16.276) found his fastest lap halfway through his practice session.

Nick Smith and Stacy Puryear, who put on an incredible battle in the closing laps of the Thunder Road Harley Davidson 200 just weeks prior, rounded out the top five cars. A complete list of UNOFFICIAL times can be found below.

A few names to point out that put down a solid is the #4 of Sam Hunt. His 16.540-second lap was good enough for eleventh on the board and #22 Grayson Cullather (16.781) who wound up nineteenth on the speed chart ahead of some Langley Speedway regulars. Of course, we understand this was just testing, and done in some of the hottest temps of the year, however, it is still worth pointing out these drivers do not race Langley on a regular basis.

Teams will have one last shot tomorrow afternoon to dial in their cars with final practice running from 12:00 PM – the same time the ticket windows and grandstands open – and run till 2:15 PM. Late Model qualifying will set to get under way approx. 4:30 PM with support division racing to begin at 7:00 PM. The Weekly Racer will have you covered for all of the nights racing action from the very first green flag to the last checkered flag over on our Twitter feed (@theweeklyracer).

#HamptonHeat Who to Watch: The Weekly Racer Staff Pick Their Top 5 Winners

The 9th Annual Hampton Heat is now just days away and the entry list is starting to be finalized. On the eve of the open test, Shawn and I wanted to give you our thoughts on who to watch out for on Saturday. Mind you, our picks were done completely separate from each other, interesting how they came out very similar. What are your picks?

 

Greg Edwards

There are not many drivers in the Late Model community that has won more races at Langley than Greg Edwards. Edwards kicked off 2017 in an incredible way picking up wins and leading the points. That was until a string of bad luck plagued the team. Edwards, another veteran driver who has yet to collect a prestigious Hampton Heat win, enters this weekend in a rebound after splitting twin races with Philip Morris in “The Prelude to the Heat.” As long as Edwards stays up front and avoids the black cloud that followed him around lately, look for him to be a very strong contender.

 

Philip Morris

Morris is on a hot streak this summer collecting wins at South Boston, Motor Mile, and even Langley Speedway. Morris is also the current VA Triple Crown series leader with his victory at the first of the month in the Harley Davidson 200. Morris continued to find ways into victory lane the following weeks. The multi time NWASS has never won a Hampton Heat in its eight-year history. However, the way he dominated second twin feature, two weeks prior, Morris cannot be counted out.

Peyton Sellers

Though Sellers is not a Langley regular he cannot be left off this list due to the sheer dominance the former NWAAS national champ & Xfinity driver showed during the first leg of the VA Triple Crown. Not to mention Sellers has won this event back in 2013 while piloting the 99 machine. What also sticks out to us here at TWR was his ability to roll out his backup car, that had no laps on it in the prior 48 hours and wheel it to two fourth place finishes. Sellers will be one car that everyone, fans, drivers, and crews will need to keep an eye on.

Matt Waltz

Just a couple of years ago the Newport News native was the man to beat when it came time for this race. 2014 seemed to be the year for Matt Waltz and his team as they entered this weekend with eight wins, fastest in practice the day before, fastest in happy hour practice the day of, and set a blistering pace throughout the race. 2014 was also when Waltz, along with Nick Smith, was penalized for coming down pit road too early at the break. The penalty put Waltz deep in the field where we would ultimately succumb to damage received in a crash. Waltz has been steady this year as we entered the weekend as the points leader and one win. This will certainly be a race he would like to check off his list and should have the car to do it come Saturday night.

CE Falk

Falk is a love em or hate em kind of racer. Especially when it comes to Larry King Law’s Langley Speedway. In years past, Falk was almost invincible when he pulled in and unloaded. Winning 32 races between 2009 & 2011 where he won the Late Model championship each year, then again in 2013, it is safe to say that Falk knows his way around the speedway. Not to mention of the eight total Hampton Heats, Falk has won 37.5% of the events. With a victory already this season, Falk will surely be a force to be reckoned with this weekend.

Sleeper: Nick Smith

This was a hard one! For multiple reasons. Smith is coming off a dominant 2016 season where he won the track championship at Dominion Raceway with around twelve wins. Currently sitting third in points this year at Langley Speedway with two wins under his belt, however, has run into some bad luck as well. Smith is also coming off a third place finish and is the highest ranked Langley driver in the triple crown series, where with the help of the invert, almost stole the victory. Smith will have to hope the cards fall his way throughout qualifying to avoid having to run deep in the hornet’s nest to keep his nose clean. The inaugural Hampton Heat winner will also have to put behind him the same mistake Matt Waltz made in 2014 if he wishes to call himself a repeat Hampton Heat winner. Nick has the car, the speed, and the talent to get it done. Will he have the luck?

Editor’s Pick: Connor Hall

He’s been killin it at Carteret, a track very similar to Langley when he’s gone down there and hasn’t been doing half bad here at Langley. Led a couple laps and is always running pretty fast when he doesn’t have bad luck. If he can keep his nose clean for the first hundred eighty laps, he might have something for them at the end.

Honorable Mentions:  Mark Wertz, Stacy Puryear, Danny Edwards, Jr., Timothy Peters

I literally spent days racking my thoughts around this one and come to the conclusion that there are probably 10, maybe 12 drivers on our pre-entry list that could win this weekend. Stacy Puryear was almost our sleeper pick due to his performance at South Boston, however, with his limited experience at the .395-mile oval, we feel that might be his only hindrance.

Mark Wertz & Danny Edwards, Jr. are always threats to win any given Late Model race at Langley Speedway and with their vast knowledge how the track changes throughout the day will certainly help both drivers.

Timothy Peters is another driver who is someone you should pay close attention to at any track he pulls into. With Red Horse Racing suspending operations earlier this year, it has allowed for Peters to run the Late Model more. He will certainly be looking to check the Hampton Heat off his list of races won.

 

Shawn’s Picks;

Philip Morris – The 4-time National Late Model champ finally got his first win at Langley Speedway in his last outing at the track. He made it look so easy that he is a good choice for winning his first Hampton Heat.

Peyton Sellers After loaning the motor from his car he tested and practiced with at Langley, Sellers hopped in his backup and qualified well and finished fourth in both races.

CE FalkCE has won the 200 lap event three times and finished third place in both races on NAPA Night.

Matt WaltzRoutinely challenging for the pole and wins at Langley Speedway, Matt is hungry for that first Hampton Heat win.

Greg Edwards The Hampton Heat win has eluded the 5-time track champion but he has had the car dialed in all season so far.


Dark Horse: Timothy Peters

After having his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series team unexpectedly close their doors Peters has returned to the late model series. Look for this driver to be up on the wheel this weekend trying to get his first Hampton Heat win.

Big Money Ahead for CARS Tour in Inaugural “Mid Atlantic Classic” at Orange County Speedway

Photo: CARS Tour Website

The 2017 Puryear Tank Lines/Thrifty Tire Service Centers 300 at Orange County Speedway saw Kyle Busch Motorsports development driver Cole Rouse hold off Matt Craig to claim his first career victory in CARS Super Late Model competition. Local favorite Layne Riggs led wire to wire in the Late Model Stock Car Tour event en route to a popular victory in front of his home crowd.

Riggs’ victory allowed him to slightly extend his points lead over Anthony Alfredo in the LMSC Tour, while Rouse was able to tie Brandon Setzer for the points lead in the SLM Tour. However, when the CARS Tour competitors return to Orange County, there will be more than just points on the line.

The historic, 3/8 mile asphalt oval will play host to the inaugural Mid-Atlantic Classic on July 22, 2017. The 150-lap super late model event will feature several key differences from the previous outing at Orange County for the super late models, including a total purse of $50,875, in which every competitor who makes the 30-car starting grid will earn $1,000. The winner of the Mid-Atlantic Classic will receive $10,000, which is a paycheck that exceeds every previous event in CARS Tour history, including the U.S. Nationals at Bristol that saw race winner Darrell Wallace Jr. earned $7,500.

“We are so excited to be able to bring the best Super Late Model drivers in the country to Orange County Speedway,” said CARS Tour Director of Marketing and Operations Chris Ragle. “Each race at Orange County has gotten bigger than the previous, now with $10,000 to win and $1000 to start we have seen interest beyond our expectations.  It is going to be a great show that you won’t want to miss!”

The Mid-Atlantic Classic will also mark the first time that stage race is used in the CARS Tour. The super late model race will be divided into four segments consisting of 35 laps, 65 laps, another 35 laps and a 15-lap sprint to the finish to end the race. There will be a five-minute break to accompany the end of each stage, and all segment winners will earn a $500 cash bonus, and will start inside the Top 8 for the final stage.

Stage racing has been around in many forms in auto racing over the past several decades, including exhibition NASCAR races such as the All-Star Race and The Clash, as well as the Eldora Dirt Derby in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. However, 2017 is the first year in which stage racing has been utilized throughout the entire NASCAR season, as the Top 10 drivers in each stage receive points, and stage winners in the top three NASCAR series earn a playoff point for their respective Chase. The new format has been well received by drivers and fans in NASCAR, and many CARS Tour competitors believe that stage racing will have many benefits for the series.

“Stage racing is going to be very fan-friendly,” said CARS Super Late Model competitor Bradley McCaskill. “The format is going to give fans something to watch, instead of drivers just riding around and saving tires until the end. It’s kind of cool how the series is giving drivers an incentive to go hard and get track position for later in the race.”

Each segment break will allow teams to change tires and work on their cars. After each break concludes, drivers will line up based on how many tires they changed in the pit box, with drivers who changed no tires starting first, while drivers who changed all four tires will start in the rear of the field. This will only be the second time this season that teams have had the option to make adjustments to their cars during the race, and many of the drivers believe that pit strategy will determine the outcome of the race.

“Everybody is going to want tires, especially as the race gets closer to the end,” said three-time CARS SLM Tour winner Matt Craig. “However, if you can get track position early and get that first stage win, then that will help your starting position. There is a lot to think about, but I think it is going to be a really interesting event, and I think you’ll see some newcomers show up. Pit strategy is really going to help out the guys who normally don’t have a shot to win the race.”

A strong field of super late model teams is expected for the Mid-Atlantic Classic, including CARS SLM Tour points leader Brandon Setzer, Raphael Lessard, Bubba Pollard, Jared Irvan, and local driver Tate Fogleman just to name a few. Although there will not be a $10,000 paycheck or any stage racing for the CARS LMSC Tour, the Mid-Atlantic Classic will serve as another chapter in the close points battle between Layne Riggs, Anthony Alfredo and Josh Berry. Nine points only separate them, but the JR Motorsports teammates of Berry and Alfredo will have to find a way to prevent Riggs from obtaining another win at his home track if they hope to gain an advantage over him.

Shawn Balluzzo and Matt Slye Split Wins in Modifieds While Renno Sweeps Super Streets

Hampton, VA – Shawn Balluzzo earned the poll for the first time this season running a 16.888 second lap around the 4/10th mile Langley Speedway. No other driver’s could get into the same bracket but Bubba Johnston, Matt Carter, and Matt Slye all qualified within six hundredths of each other for second through fourth.

Balluzzo led the field to the green and Bubba was able to run his outside for the first full lap until Shawn cleared him driving into turn-1. Carter struggled a little early on falling back to fifth place as Jamie Sample got by him six laps in. Ten laps in and there was a three way battle for fourth between Sample, Carter, and Bobby Gery. Eventually Sample would spin out into the grass and bring out the caution.

Johnston tried the high side on the restart but Balluzzo pulled away from him before turn-3. A couple cars back Gery was able to pass Carter for fifth place while Slye started reeling in Johnston with ten laps to go. Pushing his car a little too hard possibly, Slye got loose out of turn-4 and hit the drainage area but kept the car rolling forward. With five to go Gery was up to Danny Harrell for fourth place, but a caution the next lap for Slye bumping Johnston too hard and spinning him out. Shawn controlled the restart well and was able to cruise to another win on the season for the defending champ.

Race Two

Finishing 8th in the first race means Bubba has the pole for race two. Like earlier in the season Balluzzo chose to start at the rear to pick up maximum national NASCAR points in the second division. Bubba had Donnie Holston on his outside coming to the green flag but this didn’t last long as he cleared him before heading down the back stretch. Eight laps in a nd Bubba’s car has a hickup and gets loose off of turn-4 and he would cycle back to fourth place giving the lead to Matt Carter with Matt Slye chasing him down. A few laps later and Shawn was already halfway through the field with twenty-three laps remaining. Balluzzo kept up the fast pace and five laps later he was by Gery for third place and just over three seconds back of the leaders. Slye grabbed the lead on the eighteenth lap. With six laps to go Balluzzo was a second and a half back and two laps later he got around Carter for second. His run would stop there as both drivers got into lapped traffic and Slye was able to hold on to the win.

Old Skool Video Games Super Streets

Renno Marchetti IV ran a 18.863 in single car qualifying to beat out the eleven other cars that took time. Right off the start Dale Parro gets shoved high and cars scatter to keep racing on. Six laps in and Marchetti, Sammy Gaita, Randy Akers, and Landon Abbott were clear of the field by almost 8 car lengths. Back in the field Bill Eaker passed Jason Michaud for 8th place and laid some pressure on Sean Calway. Eaker worked his way past him after some good racing but the caution came out for Gordon Weeks getting in the back grass, Dale Nichols car would break a front suspension piece and hit the inside wall down the front straiht while the cars were slowing down and Dale Parro came down pit road and parked it.

On the restart Abbott chose the high line and was able to lead a lap as the drivers ran side by side for two laps before Renno could clear him. A few laps later and they made it three wide for fifth place and Eaker was the winner of that gamble. Randy Akers set up a pass on Abbott in the closing laps to secure a second place finish behind race winner Renno Marchetti IV.

Race Two

Sean Calway led the field to the green flag in the second race in the Old Skool Video Games Super Streets after an eighth place finish in race one. With it being another hot and humid day in Southeastern Virginia a little bit of rain tried to pop up again during the pace laps but the cars and track vehicles were able to keep th surface in prime racing conditions.

Calway had to defend his position several times just on the first lap. Chris Hott and Sammy Gaita spun out on the first start of the night and then Calway jumped the restart line the next attempt. After the good start Abbott tried to pass Calway on the outside but contact was made, with Landon getting the worse of the incident tearing off the right side of his vehicle and damaging the right rear suspension and flattening the tire. Michaud and Parro also were involved as they had nowhere to go when Abbott stopped, Michaud would park it for the night. Calway made a long stop in the pits but was able to rejoin the action.

With all that going on Eaker was put into the lead for the next restart and Akers went to his outside. Marchetti started behind him and took second place over with Akers not able to make a move on the outside. Six laps in and Renno was giving Eaker the bumper to let him know he was there with Akers and Gaita also waiting nearby. On lap-14 Gaita spun out into the grass on the rear stretch, a common practice for the night it seemed like.

Renno chose the high line over Bill and took over the lead quickly and Akers was battling hard with Dale Nichols for third place. Just a lap later Nichols got into Calway pretty hard putting him into the wall and bringing out another caution. Renno had a clean restart and with ten laps to go he was out to about a ten car length lead. Abbott started having some smoke from tire rub and cut down a tire on the back stretch for a late race caution. Renno took care of the last restart and was able to ride to a smooth finish for his second win of the night.

 

Langley Speedway Gearing up for 9th Annual Hampton Heat 200 on July 22nd

The NASCAR Monster Energy Cup has the Daytona 500, Indy Car has the Indy 500, and F1 has Monaco. When you stop and think about it, every racing series or track has their race, that one event that fans and drivers alike have circled on their calendar before the season is over. For Langley Speedway here in Hampton, VA that race is the Hampton Heat 200. A 200-lap, $10,000 to win race around the .395-mile oval that is sure to attract the best in the business.

With the return of the Langley Speedway and the Hampton Heat 200 in 2017, after being forced to take a year off due to the track’s closure, the race also brings back the ever-popular Virginia Triple Crown. A three race series between South Boston Speedway, Langley Speedway, and Martinsville Speedway that pays a bonus to the driver with the highest average finish in the three races. Philip Morris, who won the opening round of the Triple Crown, has been the heavy favorite floating around social media since his dominating win in the second of two races in The Prelude to the Heat.

As you can see from the list below provided by the track, many notable drivers in the Late Model community are expected to make the trip to Larry King Law’s Langley Speedway. Lee Pulliam, the 2016 NWAAS National Champion and defending race winner, however, is not listed as one of those drivers. Sources close to The Weekly Racer tell us that Pulliam just might head south to Myrtle Beach Speedway, where he has been on fire as of late, for twin races. Other names like Deac McCaskill and JRM drivers Josh Berry and Anthony Alfredo shouldn’t be expected this year as they are in a tight points battle in the CARS Tour Championship.

With an all day open practice scheduled for this Friday afternoon, it is expected that more teams will at least make the trip to test. Access their cars and notebook and then make the decision to race. It is also to our understanding the race will count towards NWAAS National and State points but will not count towards the track points, much like they did in 2016.

For a complete race day schedule head over to www.langley-speedway.com, hover your mouse over Fan Info and click the link for 2017 Hampton Heat. The Weekly Racer will post a full schedule later this week.

Michael Johnson beats out Kyle Wood in the Modifieds and UCARs Split the Twins

Midlothian, VA – The modifieds had a few less show up than the previous race but they still put on a heck of a show. Michael Johnson ran a 15.102 in practifying. He drew a four on the invert putting Lauren Edgerton on the pole, Kyle Wood in second, and Mike Rudy in third.

Kyle Wood wasted no time getting by Lauren and she ended up three wide for second place. By the third lap Johnson was into second and looking at the big lead Wood had already established. Farther on back Rudy and Morgan ran side by side for fourth place and Mike took the position and next up was Edgerton for him. He pulled up to her and made a pass on the outside on lap thirteen. At the halfway mark Johnson was starting to pull right up to Wood’s bumper going into the corner but Wood would pull away on exit. On lap-16 Adam Medek was battling a loose car and it didn’t help when Tyler Davis gave him a bump sending him around.

Coming to the restart Johnson chose the high side on the cone and Wood had possibly the slowest creep to the start I’ve ever seen. On the next lap, Johnson led the race by a nerf bar and would eventually complete the pass. One of the old sayings is that cautions breed cautions, so without fail the yellow flag flew for the second time. Medek was trying to pass Rip Salomone when he went in too hard and spun them both out.

Wood tried the high side this time over Johnson and the whole field ended up running side by side for an entire lap. Wood went to his inside once it was clear and the caution came out for the third time with Salomone and Harvey Thomas spinning out down the back stretch. Wood tried the high side again on the restart running side by side with Johnson as they came to the white flag. On the final lap he fell in behind him to try and get a nerf bar to his rear but Johnson was able to hold on for the win. Behind them, Rudy got sideways from Davis but was able to keep his third place finish.

UCAR Twins

Scott Willingham got the pole point in the UCAR division running a 16.977-second lap in the practifiying session. The always fast Michael Chapman missed out by just two-thousandths of a second of beating out Willingham. Scott pulled a 5 out of the invert bag which put Korey Lawson up front to take the green flag.

Lawson cleared the field after the first lap easily and the shuffling behind him started. Four laps in the caution flew for Willingham getting sideways with Joshua Thomas. Ending the first race for Thomas. For the restart, Chapman decided to try the high line and made a little contact with Lawson but couldn’t get by him. Hite worked his way back into second by the seventh lap and three laps later he was on the leader’s bumper trying to engineer a pass. On the thirteenth lap, Chapman slowed down on the back straight and came down to pit road to park it. Dillon Devenney and Willingham start racing hard with five to go and Scott was able to grab fourth from him. Dillon wasn’t giving up though and gives him a shot down the front straight making Willingham loose but he was able to save it. The next lap they bump again and get hooked to each other and the caution would come out. Beejay Anderson had nowhere to go and made contact while trying to slow down.

Off the restart, the UCAR drivers went three wide for second place but Hite was once again able to keep the position. With two laps to go Hunter Waldrop’s car made contact with the boiler plate and broke the right side of it. This set up a green-white-checkered finish. Lawson had a good restart but Hite was able to make some contact with him to try and steal the win from Lawson. Lawson was able to keep the spot and roll into victory lane leading every lap in the race.

Thomas led the field to the green flag in the second UCAR race of the night. Devenney was trying to get the third place position from Lawson when he got loose and fell back a spot to fourth. By the sixth lap, Thomas had a big lead but Lawson was coming, gaining almost a tenth a lap on the leader. It wouldn’t be enough though and with no help from cautions Thomas was able to cruise to the checkers with Lawson, Devenney, Ayers, and Frayser rounding out the top-5.
