Greg Edwards Collects Win Number Ten and Championship Number Six; Finishes 2019 Tenth in the Nation, Fourth in Virginia

Hampton, VA– Greg Edwards, of Poquoson Virginia, came one championship closer to tying Phil Warren’s record of seven Late Model Stock Car track championships at Langley Speedway. He also tied his brother Danny Edwards with six championships a piece – twelve all together for Edwards Motorsports. He did so by simply starting last night’s race, it was an added bonus for the team to do so from the pole position posting a time 15.833 seconds. Conor Hall, who was looking to steal the title from Edwards did not have the car count he needed but would roll off second. Michael Hardin, Danny Edwards, and Mark Wertz rounded out the fastest five.

You would have thought Greg Edwards needed to win the race in order to win the championship because he took off from the field when Shane Snyder displayed the final green flag of the 2019 season. After leaving Hall to deal with the likes of Hardin and his brother Greg had nothing but a clear track in front of him to click off laps. Hall would eventually lose his second-place position to Danny Edwards just prior to the first caution of the evening for a spinning Brenden Queen in turn two.

It was an all Edwards front row for the ensuing restart where both drivers were able to maintain their position on the speedway. The restart would essentially be null and void after contact between the No. 7 of Zach Lightfoot and No. 9 Rodney Boyd made contact in turns three and four. Edwards was challenged a little more on the second restart from three-time race winner Connor Hall. As he has done all year, Edwards was once again able to defend his position and retain the race lead one last time.

All of our attention from that point on was focused on the epic battle between Late Model veteran Mark Wertz and relative newcomer to the division, Thomas Marks. The two spent the last quarter of the 100-lap race battling door-to-door for the fourth position. Marks utilizing the inside line for the offensive while Wertz mastered the outside line and ultimately defended his position. Edwards would power out of turn four one final time to earn his tenth victory of the season by a full second over his brother Danny Edwards. Connor Hall, Mark Wertz, and Thomas Marks would round out the top five finishers.

“That’s the way I wanted to end it,” Edwards said in a confetti-filled victory lane. “We tried something for this last race because we really had nothing to lose; might should have done that earlier in the season. The car was really good. I have to thank James Long and everyone that helps [on this car], Phillip Goodwin, Ashly, and all the people that help. It takes up a lot of time out of our lives to do this. I appreciate everything they give to me. It’s been a dream season. I have to thank Charlie High, he is one hell of an engine builder and I’m proud to be driving one of his motors”

Edwards also did something this year that not too many Division-I drivers competing in NASCAR’s weekly series can do, finishing tenth in national points running a single track all year long. Edwards had exactly 18 starts this season, which is the max NASCAR will take towards your national and state standings. Earning a total of nine wins, and eighteen top fives and top tens Greg Edwards was able to finish tenth in the nation and fourth in the state of Virginia.

“We are really happy with where we finished,” Edwards commented. “You get eighteen starts and we got exactly eighteen. Got a top ten in the nation and fourth in the state while all these other guys are running thirty to forty races a year. I am really happy about that.”

The title brought Greg even with his brother Danny at six championships and both just one shy of the record Phil Warren set in the division at seven.

“We are back to even,” Greg said about his brother’s six titles. “That’s pretty impressive and an elite crew, with Danny and Phil [Warren]. I think we are the only three to be able to do that in Late Model racing so that is a good group of guys to be in with.”

Greg Edwards Looking for Sixth Late Model Stock Car Championship Tonight

Hampton, VA – The 2019 Larry King Law’s Langley Speedway will come to a close later this evening and six more champions will be unofficially crowned. Poquoson’s own Greg Edwards is looking to clinch his sixth track title tonight – twelfth combined for Edwards Motorsports. Edwards, who has already won three times as many races as the next person, is also looking to earn win number ten to close out his tremendous year. With tonight’s race being a single 100-lap feature he will have to work on a good qualifying run and saving his tires if he wants to be there at the end.

Connor Hall, who has had a breakout season of his own winning the Hampton Heat 200 and the Solid Rock Carries 150 at Carteret County Speedway collecting $10,000 in each race, comes into the weekend sitting second in points, only fifteen behind Edwards. With three wins to his credit, this season alone Hall has proven time and time again he knows how to run upfront. However, he will need some alignment of the stars if you will if he wants to steal the championship away from Edwards, something that is still mathematically possible. With each position on the track counting for one point, Connor Hall essentially needs to win tonights feature, have a full field of cars show up, per the NASCAR rulebook, and Edwards needs to have a DNF. Though the odds are stacked against the No. 77 Townebank/Blue Water Yacht Sales Toyota one thing we can certainly take to the betting table is that Connor and crew will certainly give it everything they have and more.

Defending series champion Danny Edwards (392) currently sits in third place with no mathematical chance to gain on either Hall or his brother. Brenden Queen (384) enters the night fourth in points trailing Danny by only eight points so we could see a change in third should Queen have a stellar night. Thomas Marks (337) who has also had a standout year should lock up fifth-place points by just starting the race.

In support divisions, we already know the Super Streets are going to put on a great show but with only 10 points separating Dale Parro and Gordon Weeks, we most certainly should expect to see a barn burner in that 40-lap feature. Rick Poust by virtue of taking the green flag should clinch the Super Truck championship as should rookie Mike Farley in the UCAR division. Another race we should keep our eye on is the Pro Six 30-lap feature. Jarred Clarke, who is actually winless on the season, enters the weekend with just a five-point lead over seven-time winner Travis Wall who missed the first couple races of the season.

Greg Edwards Continues to Dominate Langley Speedway in 100-lap Feature

Hampton, VA – In a stout field of 15 cars, Connor Hall picked up the pole position after putting down a lap time of 15.948 compared to Greg Edwards who qualified second with a 15.950. Danny Edwards Jr, Casey Wyatt, and Brenden Queen rounded out the five fastest drivers.

Once the field got the green flag, Hall jumped to the lead with Greg in tow. Danny, Queen and Wyatt all began a battle for the third position while everyone else went single file. Wyatt went into turn two with a great run and got to the inside of Queen to take the fourth position headed down the backstretch. Meanwhile, a heated battle between Thomas Marks and Michael Hardin started up for the ninth position.

A quarter of the way through the feature Greg Edwards put the bumper to Hall and moved Him up the hill in turn two and a side by side battle for the lead began ensued. Two laps later Greg cleared Hall for the lead down the backstretch. Greg’s brother, Danny Edwards, followed in his tracks and took second away from Hall. A side by side battle heated up between Wyatt and Queen for the fourth position. The two drivers stayed side by side for about five laps until Wertz got a piece of Queen and took the fifth spot from him. Now it was Wertz turn at Wyatt as he went to the inside of him for fourth.

Halfway through the feature it was still Greg and Danny pacing the field while Hall was coasting in third. Wyatt, Wertz and Justin Carroll continued to battle for fourth and fifth. Things started to get Wild as the laps were winding down. Justin, Wyatt and Wertz went three wide into turn one and Wyatt got into the lose stuff and almost went around. Carroll took advantage of the slip and took the fourth spot with Wertz going to fifth. Wyatt fell back to ninth after the slip.

The first caution of the evening came on lap 77 when Casey Wyatt turned Zach Lightfoot in turn two. Lightfoot wasn’t too happy about that and under caution went after Wyatt and spun him in turn three.

On the restart, Greg shot off into turn one. Wertz got stuck on the outside line and got shuffled all the way to the back of the field. Wertz then went to the pits and parked his machine with a broken right front hub. The second caution came on lap 85 once again for Lightfoot, this time it was him getting into Rodney Boyd going into turn one sending him for a spin.The next restart was a wild one, Hall got an amazing start and took it three wide into turn one to take the inside from

Greg. Danny and Queen got shuffled back after the start but held a good position. Coming out of turn four, Hall got shoved out of the groove and got stuck on the outside line falling all the way to tenth. The third and final caution came out on lap 91 for Justin getting into Danny into turn one sending Danny nose first into the wall.

On the final restart, Queen took the cone to see if he had anything for Greg and boy did he. Queen got the slightly better start than Greg and went into turn one with a slight edge for the lead. The two would stay completely side by side until lap 93 where Queen took the lead by hadn’t quiet cleared Greg. Greg would get the lead back on lap 95 and cleared Queen. Checkered flag flew and Greg Edwards picked up his ninth win of the season.

Greg Edwards Doubles Down at Langley Speedway Picks Up Wins Seven and Eight

TWR’s little helper celebrates with Greg Edwards in victory lane Saturday night when he picked up win number seven on the season. (Bill Carnes/Given to Fly Photography)

Hampton, VA– You don’t always have to win the battle but you certainly want to win the war. Greg Edwards is not a better example of that these past couples of weeks at Larry King Law’s Langley Speedway picking up his eighth victory – fifth consecutive – of the season Saturday night.

Connor Hall was the fastest man in town earlier in the evening during qualifying. Oddly enough he was the first car to hit the racetrack to lay down his 15.732–second (90.398 MPH) lap. Greg Edwards, the second to last car to go out for qualifying, came up only three-hundredths of a second short of the pole position, however, rightfully earned his spot on the front row. Brenden Queen, Danny Edwards Jr., and Casey Wyatt rounded out the fastest five cars for race one.

When it was time to go green flag racing Hall took advantage of his number one starting position and jumped out to an early lead while third-place starter Brenden Queen was able to also get by Edwards on the inside. Greg being the veteran he is at Langley settled for third and got into a familiar rhythm. Within ten laps he was able to peak his nose under Queen and take the position. With nothing but open track between him and the leader, Edwards set the car on kill mode an immediately tracked down Hall and executed a pass for the lead around lap twenty-eight. From there it was smooth sailing as Edwards would click off laps and pass lap traffic with ease to pick up his seventh – fourth consecutive – win of the season in the caution-free 70-lap feature.

Connor Hall would finish in the runner up position while Brenden Queen found a way to keep his nose just in front of Danny Edwards to steal a podium finish. Casey Wyatt, who was battling at times three-wide with Queen and Danny, would come home fifth.

Per the NASCAR rulebook, a minimum of eight cars was inverted for race number two of the evening. Handing the top spot over to Justin Carroll. To his outside was Rookie of the Year contender Zach Lightfoot. Greg Edwards elected to give up his eighth-place starting position to go to the rear with the hopes of collecting maximum points for the event and collect he did.

As usual race two was a little more hectic and honestly probably more “racey” as guys and gals were on already worn out tires, we really got to see how much people saved from the first race and the faster cars were thrown in the middle of the pack. Justin Carroll would show the way for a handful of laps before Danny Edwards took over while brother Greg Edwards worked his way through the field. With the help of a handful of cautions, some rather close together, Greg Edwards found himself back in the top three just shy of the halfway point of the race.

A couple of almost back-to-back cautions set up some rather intense cone restarts. Edwards trying both the outside and inside to get around Hall. Have to give a lot of Credit to Connor Hall and the No. 77 team because he did everything in his power to keep Edwards behind him to the point that the two rubbed doors going into one battling for the lead. Ultimately, Greg Edwards would prevail after a last-ditch cross over move from Hall was ineffective regulating Hall once again to a second-place finish. Danny Edwards would improve his finishing position by one and swap places with Brenden Queen while Justin Carroll was able to hang on to a fifth-place finish.

“It’s just really hard racing there with Connor,” Edwards said in victory lane. “If the fans don’t like that racing, I don’t know. That was some exciting side-by-side racing.  Connor gave me all he had he never backs down. He’s gonna’ run it for all she’s got and that’s what he should do. Our car was just a tick better tonight and I’m just proud of this team. Thank God for this effort, thank God for Charlie High racing engines, James Long, my fans and family, I really appreciate it.”

The Late Models will take the week off and return to racing on September 7thwith a single 100-lap feature leaving just six races left before a champion is crowned. Racing, however, will return to Langley next weekend August 31stwith twin 40-lap Modified features where the $1,000 bounty for Shawn Balluzzo is still up for grabs. Super Streets, Pro Six, Karts and Enduros all slated to race as well.

Greg Edwards Continues the Winning Streak at Langley Speedway as the Season Winds Down

Hampton, VA– When you’re hot you’re hot and that is showing in the Taylor Waste Services Late Model division at Larry King Law’s Langley Speedway. Since the annual Hampton Heat 200 no one has been on point more than current series points leader Greg Edwards, who once again flexed his muscle Saturday night dominating the 100-lap feature.

Even after transmissions issues plagued the Hampton based race team during practice, he and the crew were able to head to the race shop and make the swap prior to qualifying and went out and snaged the pole with 15.829 (89.835 mph) second lap. Connor Hall, who had just come off another impressive $10,000 win at Carteret County Speedway the previous week, Woody Howard, Brenden Queen, and Michael Hardin made up the fastest five drivers.

Once it was time to go racing Connor Hall was not playing games while Edwards may have been in tire save mode early. From the outside lane going into turn one Hall sailed his No. 77 Townebank machine into turn one and took the lead from the veteran driver of Edwards and looked early to be a major contender for the win. Even after an early caution due to contact between Rodney Boyd and Craig Eastep bunched the field back up, Hall did what needed to be done to clear the field on the ensuing restart and looked to check out.

Edwards, however, had a plan of his own and once he got back around of Queen who had elected to take the cone on the one and only restart. Once clear he went into cruise control mode attempting to save the right rear tire. It wasn’t until just before the halfway break the Edwards made his move taking a peak under Hall as the pair worked through and out of turn number two. Edwards would eventually take the position and really open up a good bit of distance between himself and second place. Lapped traffic also had a large effect on Greg’s new lead as it took way longer than normal for Connor to work his way around the slower cars of Terry Carroll and Thomas Marks. With no more cautions it was essentially the final nail in the coffin for Hall and secured the win for Edwards.

Defending track champion Danny Edwards, who had issues during qualifying which set him pretty far back in the field for the feature, rebounded to a solid third place finish. Woody Howard and Brenden Queen rounded out the top five finishers. An honorable mention goes out to Rookie of the Year contender Zach Lightfoot who started and maintained a top ten position all night – he would finish just outside the top five in the sixth position.

“My hats off to Connor [Hall],” Edwards said right after getting out of his car in victory lane. “His car is so fast on the outside I don’t know how he does it. His car just grips up and turns when he wants it. He had a lot of speed early and we were so tight so I made the decision that I needed to ride and take my time. If we could just not spin the rear tires I was hoping eventually he would wear down a little bit, I think that’s what happened.”

Greg Edwards Doubles Down on Whelen Night at Langley Speedway

Hampton, VA– Greg Edwards won just about everything but a support division races during Whelen Night at the races. Leading the way in second practice, leading the way in qualifying with 15.799 (90.006 MPH) and eventually leading the way to victory lane both 70-lap features tonight to help pad his points lead over Connor Hall. Danny Edwards, Connor Hall, Peyton Sellers, and Brenden Queen made up the fastest five starters.

Race number one got off to a great start when fifteen Taylor Waste Services Late Models came to life. Danny Edwards, who had to completely rebuild his machine following a hard wreck during the Hampton Heat, got a much better start than his brother and took the lead early. However, 2019 Hampton Heat 200 winner Connor Hall, had plans of his own and stole the lead from Danny Edwards on lap three and looked to set a pace that could not be matched.

That pace was too much even for Hall to maintain as Greg Edwards got back around his brother and eventually tracked down and passed Connor Hall to take the lead with twenty-nine laps on the board. Peyton Sellers, who had been following in the tire tracks of Edwards most of the race also got around Hall to occupy the second position and attempt to take the lead and further his case towards a 2019 NWAAS National championship. His best shot came when Edwards closed in on Cameron Bowen, making his NWAAS return, and Brenden Queen battling hard for the seventh position. Luckily for Edwards, both drivers conceded the track position for the faster cars and Edwards was able to drive away to his fourth win of the season. Peyton Sellers would hang onto second, Connor Hall third, Danny Edwards fourth and rounding out the top five for the first time in his Late Model career – Zach Lightfoot.

Per the NASCAR rulebook, no less than eight cars were inverted for the start of race number two. This handed the pole position over to Chesapeake’s own, Cameron Bowen. Brenden Queen, Thomas Marks, Zach Lightfoot, and Danny Edwards made up the starting five. Greg Edwards elected to start the second 70-lap feature from the rear of the field citing some issues getting through the gearbox and not wanting to tear the car up on the start.

That, however, did not seem to phase the current points leader from working his way through the field. Within the first handful of laps, Edwards had climbed four to five position while Queen took full advantage of the invert and showed the way for the first seventeen laps before giving way to Danny Edwards and Connor Hall. The first and only caution of the entire evening came on lap twenty-six when the No. 19 of Cameron Bowen came to a halt in the middle of the speedway down the backstretch to draw the caution before driving away and down pit road to the attention of his crew. As much as that boils our blood over here at TWR it was the break Greg Edwards needed.

Connor Hall elected to take the cone on the ensuing restart and would use it to his advantages leading several laps from the outside while racing Danny Edwards door-to-door. While all this was going on it allowed for Greg to work his way around Queen and close the gap on the leaders. Once to his brother rear bumper the two worked their way around Hall and almost immediately started to put distance on him and the field before taking over the lead on lap forty-nine. Besides a few close calls with slower cars playing difficult Edwards drove away to his second consecutive and fifth overall win of the year. Danny Edwards, Connor Hall, Brenden Queen, and Thomas Marks made up the top five for race number two.

“I am just so proud of this car,” Edwards said during victory lane. “We had a little bit of clutch issues. Thought we were fighting issues with the throw-out bearing but it was the clutch. I shifted into fourth; the wheel hopped and just wouldn’t go. Once we get going though it’s great. We didn’t want to chance it so we elected to start from the rear. That allowed me to save tires, ease my way through the field there to fifth and was lucky enough to get that caution. I saved enough rear tire and the car was spot on.”

Racing will return to Langley Speedway NEXT weekend, August 10thwith twin Modified’s, Grand Stocks, Super Trucks, UCAR, Karts, and the Enduro.

Mike Looney and Greg Edwards Split Twin Features at Larry King Law’s Langley Speedway

Mike Looney celebrates in Dale Lemonds Victory Lane June 22, 2019.

Hampton, VA – As we get closer and closer to the annual Hampton Heat 200 it was that time of the year Langley Speedway saw a few drivers come from out of town to build a solid notebook. Phillip Morris, Peyton Sellers, Jeff Oakley, and Mike Looney – who actually made his first ever start at the speedway – all made the trip to Hampton to try and tame the flat short track. Mike Looney was the fastest man in town as the sun went down over turn three and grabbed the pole over Peyton Sellers. Phillip Morris, Greg Edwards, and Danny Edwards Jr.

Once the green flag flew, Looney took the lead going down the backstretch with Sellers falling into second. Lap three and Sellers made the move coming out of turn two and went to the inside of Looney to take the lead. Morris looked to follow with Sellers but Looney cut the nose of Morris going into turn three. Morris looked to move Looney again in turn four but this time making contact with Looney’s left rear. Neither car looked to have too much damage. The battle for eighth place also began to heat up as Gracie Trotter looked to hold off a charging Queen. With ten laps on the board Looney dove to the inside of Sellers in turn three and took the lead on corner exit. Morris’ now had a bumper full of Greg Edwards. Looney began to pull away from Sellers who now had Morris and Greg in his tracks as he had a slip in turn two.

With multiple attempts to get past Sellers, it took Morris until lap 22 before he finally got around him for second. Greg also made the pass on Sellers moving him to fourth. By this time Looney had a half a straightaway lead over the field. Danny made his way around Hall for the fifth position but Hall has perfected the crossover maneuver and took fifth right back. With Morris and Greg battling for second, Looney’s lead grew to a full straightaway. Lap traffic was a big factor between Morris and Greg as Greg went to make a pass on the inside but Morris used it as a blocker causing Greg to slow up to get around the lap car. Clear of lap traffic, Morris was able to close the gap to Looney to a half a straightaway once again. Lap 40 and Greg made a bold move on Morris and took second away. After starting strong, Sellers now had to fend off Hall for the fourth position. A three-car battle heated up for the seventh position between Queen, Trotter, and Oakley. Queen looked to the inside of Trotter multiple times, but she was able to fend off all attempts.

The second caution came with twenty laps to go, this time for Queen coming to a stop in turn three. The green flag came out and once again Looney took the point but a caution came out again for debris on the front stretch. On the restart, Looney continued his streak of great starts and held the lead. Morris went to second with Hall to third. Greg fell all the way back to sixth on the restart. With just five laps to go, Hall looked to the inside of Morris in turn for and moved him up the track to take second. Sellers and Greg were both also able to get past Morris for the position.

The checkered flag flew with Mike Looney picking up his first ever win at Langley Speedway in his first ever start. Connor Hall, Peyton Sellers, Greg Edwards, and Phillip Morris rounded out the top five finishers.

With an eight invert from race number one, Jeff Oakley was put on the pole. Woody Howard, Danny Edwards Jr, Phillip Morris, and Greg Edwards filled the top five. When the green flag flew, Howard got a great start and jumped to the point. Morris fell in line in second, move Oakley to third. Oakley did not get the start he wanted and Danny took advantage of that as well and took third away. It’s well known that Langley is a one-groove racetrack in recent years so to be able to run the outside line; you must be doing something right. That’s just what Mike Looney did as he used the outside to power past Oakley for fourth. First lead change of the race came on lap 5 as Morris got to the inside of Howard in turn four and got by him.

Oakley continued to fall through the field as Hall also used the outside line to get past him. Greg then went to the inside of Oakley and passed him as well. Oakley was now in sixth. Howard looked to get the lead back from Morris as he dove to the inside of Morris in turn two and battled to turn three. Howard made big contact with Morris sending both cars up the track and allowing Danny to take the lead on lap 12. After that contact Morris fell to fifth and Howard fell to third. Looney was able to make his way from eighth to second in only 15 laps with no cautions.

Battles throughout the field began to heat up as drivers began to get impatient. Greg got past Morris for fifth and Hall was able to get past Howard for third on lap 17. After Danny was able to put a slim lead on the field, Looney was able to catch him on lap 22. Looney made the move to the inside of Danny in turn four and took the lead on lap 23. Greg made his way past Howard for the fourth position as Hall looked to gain some ground on Danny in second. After having to start at the rear of the field for a tire change, Peyton Sellers made his way up to the seventh place. After starting on the pole, Oakley fell all the way to ninth place.

Lap 30 and Sellers worked his way past Morris for the sixth position. Then on lap 34, Greg was able to get to Halls back bumper to take third place. Hall looked to pull off one of his crossover moves coming out of turn two, but Greg drove Hall to the bottom of the track almost into the grass down the backstretch. The first caution of the race came out on lap 37 for Morris going for a spin by himself in turn two. Morris came down pit road and changed his right front tire as it looked to be flat.

The green flag flew and Looney did not get a good start at all. Going into turn one he was sideways stacking the field up and allowing Greg to use the outside to take the lead and Danny going to second. Looney held onto third and Sellers was fourth. Hall fell to eighth after getting stacked up on the start. After picking speed back up, Looney was able to quickly catch up to Danny and take second away. Looney then looked to close in on Greg for the lead. An unfortunate turn of events happened for Looney as he was all of a sudden off the pace and brought his machine down pit road and parked his machine. With ten laps to go, Greg had a half a straightaway lead over brother Danny. Morris was able to catch Queen for sixth and went to the inside of him. Queen loves the outside line so Morris was unable to get past him for position.

The checkered flag flew and Greg Edwards picked up his third win of the season at Langley Speedway. Danny Edwards Jr, Peyton Sellers, Connor Hall, and Woody Howard rounded out the top five finishers.
