“Bayport Credit Union/ Speed Club Center Night at the Races”

Post Race Recap 8-19-17

By Mark Rogers Jr

Local short track racing returned to Larry King Law’s Langley Speedway with an exceptional race card featuring eleven races in nine different race divisions. Thanks in part to the rains canceling racing in recent weeks, it was business as usual at the .397 mile oval on a night of guaranteed nonstop racing action. On the evenings race schedule were the Cycle City Bandeloros and Legends series. Riverside Paper Pro Six’s returned to race duty with the Harris Truck Shop Super Trucks and the Carroll’s Automotive UCAR’s. Bojangles Enduro’s would see action once again with Old Skool Video Games Super Streets returning as well. In twin race action, Pepsi Grand Stocks along with the Taylor Waste Services Late Models highlighted the much anticipated evening of racing. Here’s the recap of all the exciting race action.

Cycle City Corps Bandeloros 15 Laps: Wesley Newell picked up his first pole of the 2017 race season with a lap set at 21.632 seconds. Jacob Putman would share the front row starting second just ten thousandths of a second of the lap of Newell’s. Green flag racing began and the pole sitter would show the field into turn one. He was then harassed by Jacob Putman for the lead but Putman had to settle for second as the leader held his line. The race experienced only one caution as Newell would hold off the charge of Putman for his first win in the Bandeloros Division. The race winner had this to say in Victory Lane, “Thank you, yeah, I wanna thank my dad, thanks to Jody and my mom”.

Taylor Waste Services Late Models Twin 66’s: Nick Smith had the fastest lap in Late Model qualifying, posting up a 16.059 second circuit to win the pole. Greg Edwards was only sixteen thousandths off the pole lap and would start shotgun in row one. Connor Hall, Brenden Queen and Matt Waltz were the five best in qualifying. Green flag waved to the pole sitter Nick Smith would need a lap to secure the point from Greg Edwards in an early battle for the lead. Once settled in single file, Matt Waltz, Mark Wertz were early movers to the front just a few laps into the race. The race then experienced two caution periods where Connor Hall’s night ended abruptly in the turn three wall. But back up front, it was leader Nick Smith being chased by Greg Edwards as the halfway had approached. Several laps later into the feature saw the lead change three times as Greg Edwards, Nick Smith traded spots before Matt Waltz after serving a rough driving penalty earlier in the race came through the field to take the lead. From there and in clean air, Matt Waltz would go on to win the first Late Model feature. Waltz from Victory Lane, “The wheel was straight when I was good, definitely want to apologize to Connor, that’s was all me, that was my fault”, admitted the race winner. “Kinda disappointed about the call to put us in the back when that hadn’t happened to anyone else out here but we came back and won it anyways. I just got to thank all these guys and thank everybody for coming out here tonight”. In the nightcap, Casey Wyatt was the pole sitter for the second race feature by virtue of his eighth place finish and by NASCAR’s invert rule. Green flag waved as Wyatt jumped out to an early lead with Danny Edwards Jr in tow. Soon a battle for the lead as Danny Edwards Jr gets to the bottom of Wyatt to take the race lead. But the lead changes for the feature had just begun as Brenden Queen spent time up front as did Matt Waltz. But suddenly the Queen, Waltz battle for the lead took a turn as contact with the leaders sent both cars spinning to bring out the caution. Inheriting the race lead as the halfway was completed was Greg Edwards who would have to survive two race restarts before amounting a sizable race lead over second place runner Nick Smith. In the latter portions of the race saw Matt Waltz worked his way back to second as Cameron Bowen showed muscle running fourth. But back up front it was all Greg Edwards in an eventful Late Model feature. Greg Edwards in Victory Lane, “Yeah, we kinda got knocked back there again at the beginning of the race like we did in the first one, I just didn’t panic”, said the race winner. “We made the right adjustments in between the races, I need to thank this for some people. John McMasters, the date of his death was yesterday, he was on our team. My Uncle Arthur Bristow, my mom’s brother, were celebrating this for him, he passed away this week. It’s a big deal for us, glad to get this car up front in clean air again, it’s just where she likes to be”.

Pepsi Grand Stocks Twin 25’s: Rodney Boyd nabbed up his fourth pole in the Grand Stock division sporting an 18.177 second lap. The hot wheel of Tommy Sweeney’s qualifying lap earned him the two spot in row one with Mark Frye, Tim Wilson and Paul Lubno rounding out the top five on the grid. Green flag racing began as Boyd showed the field into turn one and easily secured the point by turn two. From the three spot, Mark Frye would use up Tommy Sweeney for second as Paul Lubno was an early mover as well. Rodney Boyd would enjoy his race lead for much of the feature before Frye would catch the race leader. But with two laps to go, the leader Boyd would spin off the bumper of Frye to bring out the caution, Frye would be forced to start in the rear for rough driving. Back to the green to decide the feature, Boyd would rebound and come back to win the first Grand Stock feature. Boyd in Victory Lane, “Almost again we had one taken away from us just out there riding”, claimed Rodney Boyd. “After the last incident involving Tommy Sweeney, tore our car up, these things aren’t as easy to fix as people think they are. It takes a lot of effort, a lot of hard work to find the piece that’s bent but we found it, still gotta do a little more adjustment”. In the Grand Stock second feature, Kevin Morgan assumed the race pole after the mandatory eight car invert. Green flag would wave as pole sitter Kevin Morgan would lead lap one followed by Tommy Sweeney taking a turn at the lead on lap two of the event. Paul Lubno with Tim Wilson were some of the early movers before race leader Tommy Sweeney slowed to bring out the caution. Back to the green saw Paul Lubno as the race leader who would continue his race lead to the halfway. But then came race one winner Rodney Boyd who started eighth from the mandatory invert to take the race lead as there would only be a few laps left in the feature. Once in clean air, Boyd would go on to win the second Grand Stock feature. Boyd from Victory Lane,” Competition is tough in our division”, explained Boyd. “When you think a guy who qualifies last can’t run up front, it proved tonight. Kevin Morgan held his own on the outside and did a helluva job. I waited my time, picked the times when it was right to make my move, it was good battling with Paul Lubno. Once again thank all my sponsors, Langley Speedway and Bill Mullis”.

After a brief race caution, Saunders would win the restart into turn one and from there, go on to win the Legends race feature. Spencer Saunders from Victory Lane, “Man this feels great, after qualifying fourth I wasn’t sure what we had for the race”, said the race winner. “I had a feeling that we would be pretty good, once we took the lead it seemed like we never looked back. I really hated to see that caution with five to go, seems like when you want one, you never get it and when you don’t want one you get one anyways. Just glad we were able to hold them off, just want to thank my dad and mom, all the fans for coming out”.
