The CARS Late Model Stock Car Tour will make their first trip up to Virginia this season for Saturday’s 125 at Langley Speedway.

In seven decades of operation, Langley has hosted events for the NASCAR Cup Series, Xfinity Series, Whelen Modified Tour and many other sanctioning bodies while also being the site of the Denny Hamlin Short Track Showdown in 2018.

Saturday’s 125-lap feature will be the third time that the CARS Tour has visited Langley. Former champion Deac McCaskill won the inaugural race back in 2019 while Layne Riggs enters the week as the defending winner of the 125.

Although he has been efficient at flat tracks, the 2021 season has been marred by inconsistency for Riggs, who has three finishes outside the Top 20 to go along with a victory at Ace Speedway and a second at Dillon Motor Speedway.

Riggs and the rest of the CARS Tour competitors will look to the stop the momentum being generated by veteran Justin Johnson after he became the first multi-time winner of the season at Caraway Speedway two weeks ago.

Along with the series regulars, 2017 Langley Late Model Stock champion Matt Waltz has also filed an entry for the 125, while Nelson Motorsports has elected to field a second car for veteran Timothy Peters.

The 125 can be viewed live on, with Langley’s UCar division set to get the on-track action underway at 7 p.m.. The complete entry list can be found below.
