(LEHIGHTON, PA. 5-13-18) Late Models at Mahoning Valley Speedway have been a staple for decades. Some of the best asphalt Late Model aces have and still compete at the demanding paved ¼-mile oval in Lehighton.
Mike Sweeney, who is the two-time and defending champion has been the leading Northeast asphalt Late Model winner the past three seasons.
Four time champion Paul Koehler Jr., is the all-time wins leader in area pavement wins. Frankie Althouse has been carving his own niche right alongside those two. There are others as well like most recent winner and up and comer Broc Brown. The always steady Jeremy Miller, respected veteran Kenny Hein and hot shoe Jacob Kerstetter to name a few of the current stars who race Mahoning Valley.
Track management is proud of their Late Model group but would also like to help bolster the field by inviting any and all area/regional/touring asphalt Late Model racers to be part of the Mahoning action.
With a simple weight adjustment, either left side or total, the track will allow Late Models built to different track/series rules to compete.
Race Director Steve Fox is ready to answer any and all questions that any competitor might have and can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
