Langley Speedway released their 2019 schedule on Saturday packed with 21 NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Late Model Stock Car races on 15 dates.

The season will kick off on Saturday, March 30th featuring a 100-lap Late Model Stock Car race. Two of the 15 LMSC dates will feature the two biggest Late Model Stock Car races held annually the Hampton Heat 200 and the 200-lap Denny Hamlin Short Track Showdown. The Denny Hamlin Short Track Showdown will take place on Thursday, April 11th with a test day of Wednesday, April 10th. The Hampton Heat will take place on July 20th.

In addition to the Late Model Stock Car dates, Langley Speedway will also host the CARS Tour Late Model Stock Car series for the first time on June 8th. This will be a great test of local drivers versus some of the biggest names in Late Model Stock Car racing on the tricky flat track.

After running primarily twin 75-lap feature races for the Late Model Stock Cars in 2018, Langley Speedway will mix things up with twin 70-lap features, 100-lap features and the two 200-lap features.

In 2018, Danny Edwards, Jr. racked up another championship for the legendary Edwards family name that has been synonymous with racing in Eastern Virginia for many years. This season there will be many regular challengers for the championship including Edwards brother Greg, Brenden Queen, Justin S. Carroll and newcomer Zach Lightfoot. Lightfoot comes back home to Langley Speedway after winning the Dominion Racer (Limited) division championship at Dominion Raceway in 2018.

A mix of drivers from seasoned veterans to guys several years into their Late Model Stock Car career and newcomers should help to mix up the competition even more in 2019 at Langley Speedway.
