Greg Edwards Takes 3rd Place at Langley Speedway
We got off to a great start Saturday! Greg qualified with a lap time of 16.518. This put Greg in the first position but on the "re-draw" Greg spun the wheel and it landed on "8". This now put Greg starting in the 8th position and inverting the first eight drivers for Saturday Nights 75 Lap Race.
The opening ceremony started with the 1st Colonial High School Marching Band followed by a roaring Monster Truck show. Although the show was short due to a malfunction to one of the rear tires, the show was definitely exciting!
The Late Model Division was scheduled to run third. During the second race of the night, a rain cloud positioned itself right over top of Langley Speedway and dumped rain once again on race night. The race was stopped for the brief rain shower and then the Langley Speedway Crew, Volunteer's and Driver's jumped into action to dry the track. The track was cleared and the race went on.
After avoiding several "close call" accidents, Greg continued to make his way up the field. With an unavoidable slip into the infield's muddy mess, a car slipped from the track and slid sideways from turn two all the way to turn three spraying mud across the track and cars. Greg's windshield was now covered in mud from top to bottom and stayed covered for most of the race.
With a small view through the muddy windshield, Greg worked his way up to take 3rd with only eleven laps to go. He fought to hold his position and finished in 3rd place for Saturday Night's Race.
The night ended with great finishes by the Edwards brothers. Congratulations to Danny for taking 2nd place!
Thank you to everyone who came out Saturday night to support us! Special Thanks to all of our Sponsors for helping us maintain a "winning" car and team and to Langley Speedway for making it all possible!
Langley Speedway will be closed Saturday, May 14th for the Richmond Race Weekend. We hope to see you at the next race on Saturday, May 21st.
