Mahoning Valley Speedway releases Octoberfast news; Enduro/Demo reset to October 28…Late Model/Street Stock Shootout added
LEHIGHTON, PA – Mahoning Valley Speedway presented by Lehighton Ford has once again drudged through a weather related weekend as flooding from late week rain forced the postponement of the scheduled Dirt Mods, Small Car Enduro, Jr. Enduro, Vintage TQ and Small Car Demo Derby. Since then there has been revisions made to best accommodate that event.
Firstly the Dirt Mods will now be part of Octoberfast on Saturday, October 13. The race will be a 50 lapper and pay $1000-to-win. Any style Dirt Modified is welcome to race including those with sail panels. The race winnings have been bolstered thanks to Mike and Cindy Warden who posted an additional $100 to the winner and promoter Jack Carlino who is kicking in and additional $300.
The Enduro and Demo along with the Vintage TQ’s will now take place on Sunday afternoon, October 28. In place of the Dirt Mods will be a Late Model/Street Stock Shootout feature. Race time is slated for 1:30 pm.
The Small Car Enduro will pay a guaranteed minimum $600 to win, $300 for 2nd, $200 for third, $150 to fourth and $100 for fifth. Dependent upon the number of entrants that prize money can increase.
