Post Race Recap 7-1-17
By Mark Rogers Jr

Highlighting an exciting night of racing and making the trip on its 2017 race schedule at the .395 mile oval was The Virginia Sprint Series. The lightweight, winged Sprint Cars were a sure bet to produce speeds not often and rarely ever seen at Larry King Law’s Langley Speedway. Also in race action were the Trip Anderson Realtor Winged Champ Karts, Carroll’s Automotive UCARS and the Harris Truck Shop Super Trucks. On the evenings race schedule included Old Skool Video Games Super Streets followed by the much anticipated Fireworks display to conclude the evening. Fast speeds, close racing and lighting up the skies made Larry King Law’s Langley Speedway the place to be.

Trip Anderson Realtor Winged Champ Karts 20 Laps: Aaron Leach was quickest this week in the afternoon time trials, blistering a 23.088 second lap to earn the top spot on the grid. Brandon Lorah’s lap which was equal in effort but just short on speed yet worthy of a share of the front row would start second. Garry Osbourne, Tillman Heuer, and Danny Millard were the five best in the twenty one car field. Green flag waved to start the evenings racing and emerging as the early race leader was pole sitter Aaron Leach. Garry Osbourne would lock bumpers early, drafting the leader and mirroring his every move. On back, Danny Millard with Robert Pellek were able to stay with the leaders but by halfway, the leaders were able to get away. Final laps in the event saw Osbourne able to sneak a peek underneath but couldn’t get it done as Aaron Leach would cross the stripe first. Aaron Leach was in Victory lane, “We made some changes and everything worked”, expressed the race winner. “I cant thank enough Bill Mullis for buying this race track and actually run one of his karts. Everything this year is for my nephew, everything that’s been going on, let’s go win another one”.

Jesse Jones continued to give chase but nothing was doing against the hot wheel of Michael Waters who would go on to win his sixth straight at Larry King Law’s Langley Speedway. Waters had this to say in Victory Lane, “Yeah, Ive been sweating in the car even before we took the green, it’s been hot all day”, claimed Waters. “Like to thank Moyock Automotive, Courtney, it’s her car and not mine.

McAdams from Victory Lane, “Awe yeah man, it’s been a rough year but it took a lot of hard work”, shared the race winner. “Dustin, I thought he had me but started reeling him back in after we caught up to that lap car, hopefully we can get back here again (Victory Lane)”.
