MOORESVILLE, N.C. – HScott Motorsports with Justin Marks (HSMJM) is proud to announce the organization’s 2016 NASCAR K&N Pro Series East (NKNPSE) driver lineup: J.J. Haley, Hunter Baize, Harrison Burton and Tyler Dippel. Haley will return to the team following his 2015 rookie campaign in the series. Baize, Burton and Dippel will compete full time in the NKNPSE during the 2016 season and also will compete for Rookie of the Year honors.
Haley, 16, earned six top-five and 10 top-10 finishes in 14 starts with HSMJM in 2015. The Indiana native finished sixth in the NKNPSE driver point standings. Haley also made three starts in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series in 2015, with a career-best finish of seventh at Phoenix International Raceway in November.
Baize, 18, finished third in the ARCA/CRA Super Series point standings last season with two wins at the Illiana Motor Speedway in Schererville, Ind. and Flat Rock Speedway in Carlton, Mich. Baize also finished ninth in his ARCA Racing Series debut at Berlin Speedway in Marne, Mich. He followed that with a sixth-place run at Springfield’s Illinois State Fairgrounds.
Hampton, VA – Missing the full moon by just one day, Langley may have seen some left over “Full Moon” mojo as some very interesting events unfolded over the weekend. After a week of rain outs, Mother Nature was kind enough to give us one day to get some Late Model action in! This was supposed to be a double-header weekend for us with East Carolina Motor Speedway hosting their Whelen Night but, heavy rain storms in North Carolina forced track officials to pull the plug early. I know it has to be tough to make that decision but hind sight is the time and money the track saved the drivers and fans. We will have to wait another two weeks to see the cars work their way around the tricky tri-oval!

Poquoson, VA – She’s been stripped down, torn apart, every inch of her frame inspected, curves of her body smoothed out, brand new outfit! Today is the day all that hard work over the short off season – in retrospect to all of the other professional sports– finally pays off. Greg Edwards has worked hard over the past few months to get ‘LaFawnduh’ back in tip top shape and ready to lay some rubber at Langley Speedway this season.
Most people would agree that a reporter or a journalist should not show any bias towards a story or an event they are covering. Well guys good thing I am not your average reporter or journalist! Langley Speedway has been my home away from home for over 10 years now. I remember when my father took me to my first race back in 2003, needless to say it was love at first sight for me!
Well everyone, it is that time of year again when the car covers come off, the rumble of engines and the sweet smell of cam2 floating through the air! Langley is set to drop the green flag on its 64th season come Saturday April 5th and I know I can’t be the only one excited to get this season of racing in Hampton Roads “officially” underway.
