Connor Hall sweps Langley twins, shocks sent to NASCAR

This is more common than you might realize

Connor Hall once again swept a pair of Twin Late Model Stock 50s on Saturday night at Langley Speedway but his front shocks have been sent to the NASCAR Research and Development Center in Concord, North Carolina for a closer evaluation following post-race technical inspection.

This doesn’t mean the car failed inspection, and the final results have been published as official by the track, but this is a common practice when a track is unable to measure or otherwise verify a component. A benefit of NASCAR sanctioning is that a track can lean on the league in these instances.

After winning in the opener, Hall was inverted to ninth by a blind pill draw that place Danny Edwards and Cole Bruce on the front row.

Both held on to finish in the podium, Bruce ahead of podium but neither could fend off Hall, who was in the top-five by nine laps. He was second to Edwards by Lap 20 as Bruce fell to fourth early in the feature. The winning pass was made on Lap 23.

He carved through the field.

Hall survived a rash of restarts in the second half of the race to win his sixth race in as many starts, seven if counting the CARS Tour race the week before, at his home track in pursuit of championships in both the series and the NASCAR national championship.

“Good restart by Cole and Ryan Matthews gave me a good shot there into one, and I think they caught me sleeping on the restart a little bit, and it goes to show you how hungry everyone is here too,” Hall said. “We’ve got a lot of work going into this program. I say it every week. We have a lot of supporters …”

There was one fan heckling him pretty loudly during his victory lane celebration, which ‘broke me off my game a little,’ as he was rattling down the list of his sponsors.

“I guess we have a Butterbean fan here tonight,” Hall jabbed back.

The win keeps Hall in position to chase both championships.

“Tonight was good for points, good for business and if  you’re not a fan of that, I apologize,” Hall said. “I’m here to take care of business.”


Hall started from the pole in the first race and led every lap over Woody Howard with Mark Wertz securing the final spot on the podium. Hall won the CARS Tour race last week at Langley and then won his fifth race in as many starts at Langley this season.

Which car does he like better?

“It’s a toe-mae-toe versus a tah-mah-toe deal,” he said. “We had a great car last week and a great car here tonight. This is the best this car has been in a while. We’re always tinkering. I don’t know. It’s hard to beat last week’s car, winning in the CARS Tour, but I love taking this car, Towne Bank and a bunch of other partners in Victory Lane.”

The only two incidents of note in the first race were single car spins involving Justin S. Carroll on Lap 11 and Trey Williams on Lap 25.

    The heckling was terrible and it’s the same guy everytime Conner Hall wins. We watch on Flo Racing and can hear his o sceneries over the television. Its awful. I think the track should do something about him. There are kids there and also watching on Flo Racing. It is not a good example for the track to let this be heard there and at home. I get sick of hearing this guy. And it is disresptful to the viewers, drivers, and fans of FLO RACING!!!
