HAMPTON, Va.– Greg Edwards and Matt Waltz shared the spotlight at Langley Speedway on Saturday evening, splitting the Shriners/Max Media Twin 75s for the ComServe/Verizon Wireless Late Model Stock Cars.
Edwards picked up his fifth win of the season in the opener, bouncing back from two trips to the rear of the field.
