Keith Langston Continues Winning Ways

Keith Langston started on the pole this past Saturday April 18th for the twenty lap Pure Stock race at Orange County Speedway. Langston got off to a good start, but not the same thing can be said for his other competitors. Langston rolled out to about a 7 or 8 car length lead early in the race on the next closest racer Thomas Penny. Then on lap 7 there was caution on the track for debris and after lap 10 Langston was still in the lead with Thomas Penny in second, Chase Sandefur in third, Tony Ivey in fourth and Thomas Chappell in fifth. Thomas Penny made a big push for “Mississippi” Langston towards the latter part of the race and even went side by side for a lap or so with Langston riding the high line as usual. In the end when the white flag flew it was Langston grabbing the victory and another trophy for the memorabilia room. Langston finished first with Thomas Penny in second, and Sandefur winding up in third. Langston won the season long point’s race in ’08 and it sure looks like he hasn’t missed a bit after the first race of this year.
