Langley founded what you see today because he saw a gap in coverage for Late Model Stock Cars (LMSC), which race primarily throughout the southeast region. His passion and determination for LMSC helped grow the brand of not only race22.com but the reputation of LMSC racing. He was not really involved in the day to day for a few years but has returned in hopes of returning race22.com to the forefront of short track media specifically with the LMSC racing community.
