Jimmy Humblet posted his fourth and fifth victories of the season with a sweep of the twin 30-lap features in the Modifieds class in Saturday’s NASCAR Whelen All-American Series program at Langley Speedway.

In the first event, Humblet snagged the lead from pole-sitter Robbie Babb on lap 18 and drove on to a four-length win. Babb was second to the line, followed by Anthony Kincaid, Danny Harrell and Matt Slye.

In the second race, which was extended to 33 laps to accommodate a “green-white-checkered” finish, Humblet led all the way from the pole to complete the sweep.

Harrell was second, four lengths back, while Scott Lawrence, Chris Humblet and Lauren Edgerton completed the top five.

The Mod Twins were hard-hitting affairs, featuring a total of nine caution flags — five in the first race and four more in the second. By the end of the night, nine of the 14 original starters had been relegated to the sidelines.

Landon Florian picked up his third and fourth wins of the season with a sweep of twin 20-lap races in the Pro Sixes class.

In the opener, Florian moved out front on lap 9 and led the rest of the way, finishing half a straightaway ahead of Cody Carlton.

Bobby Hall, fast qualifier T.J. Guthrie and Travis Wall completed the top five.

In the nightcap, Florian started from the pole and led flag-to-flag, beating Guthrie by half a straightaway. Hall, Carlton and Wall were third, fourth and fifth, respectively.
