Hampton, VA – It is that time of year again when the best of the best come together on one track, to battle for the prize money and the bragging rights! The 8th Annual Hampton Heat 200 is upon us here in Hampton Roads and let me tell you what; this one is on track to shatter all kinds of records. Rumor around the block is more than 40 cars have registered for the chance to take home $10,000! Names like Lee Pulliam, Tommy Lemons Jr, Greg Edwards, Matt Waltz, C.E Falk, Josh Berry, Phillip Morris – I could keep going but I don’t want to ruin the surprise!

A few things have changed this year right off the bat, because of pesky Mother Nature the 2015 Hampton Heat will actually be the first of three races in the VA Triple Crown trilogy. South Boston’s 200-lap race has been rescheduled for August 29th. Second, this year’s race will not be a Langley Speedway points race! Teams will still however be able to earn points to the national points standings. A huge change from last year as the Hampton Heat honestly played a pivotal role in the championship standings.
Who will win the 2015 Hampton Heat 200? Well shoot, your guess is as good as mine! Langley so far this year has seen seven different winners… a few of which do not call Langley their home track. This years event is going to bring big names from some pretty big stables in the Mid-Atlantic Region. Lee Pulliam – who has a victory this year – will be in the running. Josh Berry, driver for JR Motorsports, took home a win in his very first attempt at the track. Greg Edwards, the current points leader, looking to bounce back after rebuilding his primary color. I could honestly go on forever BUT we will save that for a different post later this week with our very carefully and thought out predictions!
