Langley Speedway is all set to drop the green flag

This Saturday, it's the first racing schedule of the season after waiting out the pandemic

HAMPTON, Va. — For the first time this season, we get to hear that sound on a Saturday night on North Armistead Avenue in Hampton. They'll be revving up their motors for the first weekend of racing at Larry King Law's Langley Speedway.

There is a long list of health and safety precautions the track will adhere to in the midst of this pandemic. Once Governor Northam reopened Stage 3 in Virginia this week, Langley was ready to go racing with a limited number of fans in the stands.

The usual capacity for the track is 6,500 fans. There is a strict limit of 1,000 for race nights, at least for now.
