There really isn’t anything quite like racing. When human and machine align and become one to defeat their opponents, overcome obstacles, and master the racetrack, it’s a beautiful thing to watch. The good people of Virginia understand this better than most, as Larry King Law’s Langley Speedway is the ultimate venue for a variety of racing events and spectacles. You’ll find karts, cars, super trucks, twin modifieds, VA Sprint Cars, drifting, Enduro racing, and a whole lot more at the Langley Speedway.
