Langley Speedway is a historic track in Virginia. NASCAR Cup races were held there starting in 1964 when the track was still dirt (Ned Jarrett), and ending in 1970 (Bobby Allison).

Late Models are the featured class at the track. Before the current paved oval opened in 1968, there were a pair of dirt tracks at the facility. The first was called Dude Ranch Speedway, the second Langley Field.

The Winged Champ Karts put on a drafting exhibition at that has to be seen to be believed. Not known as an open cockpit track, Nick Fornoro Jr. did win an ARDC Midget race there in 1991.

Langley is a very nice place to watch racing, with an infield clear of haulers and comfortable aluminum seating.


Jason Bittner: Made it there one time I believe in 1997. Saw late models, 4cyl. Stocks and I think trucks.
