Another soggy afternoon, during which tantalizing peeks of sunshine were quickly superseded by heavy downpours, forced Langley Speedway officials to throw in the towel on the track’s program on Saturday.

It was Langley’s fourth washout since July 14.

Track officials are hoping for a more favorable forecast as action resumes at Langley Speedway on Sept. 1, when the NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour hits town for a Labor Day weekend 150-lapper, presented by Newport News Shipbuilding and BayPort Credit Union.
