Danica Double Time

Word around the garages is it’s only a matter of time until Danica Patrick is announced as a new team member of JR Motorsports. JR Motorsports is the Nationwide Series operation owned by none other than Dale Earnhardt Jr. It has been reported Patrick will sign a two-year contract and will race in as many Nationwide Series events as possible since she is still racing full-time in the Indy Racing League. The partnership should make its track debut next February at historic Daytona Speedway. This is a very smart move by Little E and NASCAR to bring Danica Patrick into the fold. She will sell major merchandise and will bring more eyeballs to a sport that has been dwindling in viewership in the last few years.

Langston Goes Back-to-Back

We would like to congratulate Keith “Sippi” Langston for winning his second Pure Stock points title in as many years this past weekend at Orange County Speedway. Langston winning the title was pretty much a foregone conclusion due to the massive lead he had accumulated throughout the year. Langston had 4 wins, 3 second place and 2 third place finishes during the 2009 campaign. Langston has been truly dominant for the last two years at OCS and you can count on him to be the heavy favorite entering 2010. Congrats Sippi!

Mayfield Mud Slinging Continues

The Jeremy Mayfield saga continues unravel with more and more bizarre news and accusations and the latest coming earlier today. Mayfield who was suspended a few months ago from NASCAR for allegedly smoking crystal meth has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against his stepmother Lisa Mayfield over the death of his father. Mayfield and his legal team filed the suit late last week in North Carolina Superior Court. The lawsuit doesn’t state specifically how his stepmother was involved in the death of Terry Mayfield, but claims her “intentional actions” were a key role in his death. The investigation performed by police stated Terry Mayfield died from a suicidal gunshot to his chest, but it seems Jeremy thinks his stepmother is the culprit. This story has already been an ugly one for the Mayfield family, but it could get a lot worse before there is resolution.

Langston Wins In Amazing Fashion

This past Saturday was another steamy summer evening out at Orange County Speedway in Rougemont, North Carolina and there was a full list of races for all the spectators to enjoy. I personally arrived in time to see some of the final qualifying laps for the Late Model Stock series along with some U-Cars heats to get me in the mood for a good night at the track. Our favorite racer Keith “Sippi” Langston was third on the race agenda for the evening so he was gracious enough to take some time to come sit with me and some other fans before his Pure Stock race. Sippi came into the Pure Stock series that evening leading the point’s race with a laser focus to continue his winning ways. Langston had finished second in qualifying and drew fourth, but the starting position isn’t where races are won for Mississippi Motorsports. Langston as usual immediately shot out of the gates at the beginning of the race, but Tony Ivey wasn’t going to give up the lead easily. Langston and Ivey literally fought the entire 20 laps with the final few leading up to a one hell of a finish. Langston continuously ran extremely hard in turn 3 and 4 of the 3/8 mile track, but each time Ivey will somehow hold him off to maintain first place. Then on the final lap Sippi made one more tremendous charge before turn 3 and by turn 4 the two were neck and neck, but Langston was able to reach the finish line first before getting spun out by a disgusted Tony Ivey. The crowd went wild and the winning ways for Langston continued. The next race is at Orange County Speedway on August 18th so we highly recommend you put it on the calendar and plan to attend because it is a great outing to say the least.

Orange County Speedway Pure Stock Race July 18th, 2009

Langston Continues to Shine

Keith Langston won his second race of the year at Orange County Speedway in dominating fashion this past Saturday. “Sippi” Langston led the entire Pure Stock race on the Fourth of July, but it definitely wasn’t without suspense during the final laps. This win gives Langston a commanding 26 point lead in the overall points race and he has his eyes on another OCS Pure Stock Championship.

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.

Mississippi Motorsports is Ready to Roll

I’m sure by now all of our readers are well aware of Keith Langston and more importantly that last year he won it all at Orange County Speedway. We were so proud of his domination at OCS last year and it felt good to know SportsUnderground.com backed the best Pure Stock racer at Orange County Speedway. Well, it’s hard to believe that racing season is just around the corner when it seems like just yesterday the season ended. We are REALLY looking forward to this season because Langston will be mainly be racing at South Boston Speedway with a few OCS races still in the mix. Keith Langston has informed us that Mississippi Motorsports should have an update soon on some new sponsors for the ’09 season so once we get the scoop we will let you know.

Langston Pulls Off a Miracle

Keith Langston of Mississippi Motorsports had a battle all day last weekend at Orange County Speedway. Sippi lost the power steering on his pure stock car as soon as he unloaded the car at the track. Obviously he had a hard time qualifying, but he was able to qualify 4th. The power steering was only the beginning because Langston had a guy slam block him on the first lap dropping him to last place plus his front end was knocked off. With only 10 laps to go he was in last place yet somehow miraculously after all the troubles of the day Langston went on to win the race. The win gives Langston a total of 5 on the year at OCS!

Keith Langston Racing Update

Pure Stock

It seems there is one actual way these days Keith “Mississippi” Langston can’t win a race in the Pure Stock series at Orange County Speedway. He has to be disqualified to be held down. This past Saturday night Langston was disqualified for an honest mistake after changing two tires before the race which led to the DQ and halted his three race winning streak. Langston is still way ahead in the points race and with only four races to go this year things are looking really good for Langston and Mississippi Motorsports.

Dare We Say Keith Langston is En Fuego

En fuego

Keith “Mississippi” Langston started 6th this past weekend in the Pure Stock race at Orange County Speedway, but as usual it wasn’t long before his aggressive driving had him in first place. There were several thrills in the race where drivers were 2 and 3 wide which is s sight to see on such a small track. In the end Langston pulled off his third win in a row and fourth for the year. Sippi is running away now with the points race and is back at OCS this weekend looking to continue his dominance. All hail the king!
