One Night, Two Wins for CE Falk

Mason DunnCorrespondent IAugust 31, 2009

The quote, "when you're on, you're on," is the best description for talking about the way CE Falk went about bringing home his ninth and tenth wins of the 2009 season in NASCAR Whelen All-American Late Model Stock competition at Langley Speedway.

The track had changed the scheduled 100 lap event to twin 75s in an effort to make up some events that had been cancelled by weather.

Falk would show his strength early laying claim to the pole position for the first race and the outside pole position for the second race. Brother and teammate Wes Falk would qualify his Chevrolet 10th and 13th for the respective races.
Race one saw CE waste no time in taking the lead and showing the way but the road was not so smooth for Wes who encountered some bad luck early as the 17 of John Staton spun directly into the path of the hard charging 41 resulting in Wes' car climbing the side of Staton's bringing out the first caution and relegating Wes to a 19th place finish.
CE would continue on in dominating fashion opening up several large leads and showing some tremendous power on every restart before cruising to the first win of the night by just under two seconds over last week's winner Woody Howard. Mark Wertz, Danny Edwards and Greg Edwards would make up the rest of the top five.
After ample amount of time to rest and prepare for race number two the field retook the track just after midnight but the song remained the same.

After taking the lead from pole sitter Paul DeBolt on lap seven Falk never looked back showing no loss of power from race one. Meanwhile, Wes was having a much better race moving up to as high as seventh before losing brakes and having to run the race of his life to protect his eighth place finish.
CE Falk, who had impressed many by running away from former USAR standout Woody Howard by two seconds in race one, would top that in race two as he would battle through numerous restarts to top Howard once again, this time by just over four seconds. Greg Edwards, Mark Wertz and Dean Shiflett would round out the top five in race number two.
"We had two flawless races, the car was absolutely perfect. Our Avalon Pier/HorsePower Tee Shot Tour/Towne Bank Ford Fusion was incredible on both the short and long run," said an elated CE Falk glancing over at two trophies, "My team showed that they wouldn't let a bad week bring them down."
The night was also incredible for CE in the championship points battle as he would extend his lead over 2008 Champ Danny Edwards from six points to 22(652-630) with five races left on the schedule for the Crossroads Fuel Late Models. While Wes Falk is locked in a tight battle for sixth in points which he currently occupies by four points over Jeff Shiflett and eight points over Dean Shiflett.
In the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series points CE Falk would see a 56 point improvement in his National total, lifting it up to 742 points, and a 72 point boost in his Virginia State total, improving that to 720 points.
Next up for Falk Motorsports is another pair of 75 lap races next week, September 5, at Langley Speedway.
