IT'S TIME TO RACE!!
March 29, 2008

Jimmy Lang Wins ASA Late Model Nail Biter at Bronson

By Matt Prieur

The first race of the 2008 racing season overall for the entire ASA Late Model Series Presented by GM Performance Parts and more specifically, the ASALMS Southern Division is now complete!

The Flagship RVís 100, the 2008 ASALMS Southern Division Season Opener is now in the record books as the fast 0.333 Mile High-Banked Paved Oval of the Bronson (FL) Motor Speedway, located West of Gainesville in Bronson, Florida served as gracious hosts of the Flagship RVís 100.

In a exciting, thrilling, and just plain wild 100-lap Feature that ended up going into overtime to 101 laps, 19-year-old Jimmy Lang passed David Odell just after the final restart on Lap 99 and held off a late charge from Rookie of the Year title contender, Chad Pierce to win his first career ASALMS Southern Division Feature!

The Bluffton, South Carolina driver also takes the early points lead in the chase for the 2008 ASALMS Southern Division Championship title chase heading into the second South event on Saturday, April 19, 2008 at the New Senoia (GA) Raceway, located Southwest of Atlanta in Senoia, Georgia for the running of the Georgia Showdown 100.

Lang, who earlier in the evening broke the track record in ARP Bodies / Aluminum Racing Products Qualifying, took the lead for the first time on Lap 80 after race long leader, 17-year-old Blake Lehr, who led the first 79 laps, and home track favorite, Travis Cope collided in Turns 1-2 battling for the lead.

Both Lehr and Cope were sent to the rear of the field giving Lang the lead. Another Rookie title contender, David Odell grabbed the lead from Lang on Lap 99 only to see the last caution of the night fly. Odell led Lang to the green for the green-white-checkered finish and Lang would redeem himself by passing Odell back to take the lead and win!

As Odell tried to regroup, he blew a right front tire and limped across the start finish line in 10th. Pierce and several others cars all got by Odell and Pierce even mustered up a late charge at Lang, but in the end settled for second and takes the early lead in the chase for the 2008 ASALMS Southern Division Rookie of the Year title.

Wesley Chapel, Florida sophomore, Jeremy Gerstner finished a career high third while Buda, Texas native, Colt James came from the rear of the field on three different occasions to finish a solid fourth. 17-year-old Dustin Dunn rounded out the Top Five with a career high fifth place showing.

Lehr, who led the first 79 laps before going to the rear of the field, recovered to finish sixth as 14-year-old Casey Caudill earned the nightsí Hard-Charger Award after starting 17th to finish an impressive seventh. 17-year-old Kyle Eastham was eighth as 16-year-old Michael Pilla and Odell completed the Top 10.

More Details and a Complete Recap of the Flagship RVís 100 will be available beginning on Monday, March 31, 2008.
