(LEHIGHTON, PA. 5-15-19) Thus far Mahoning Valley Speedway has run off five thrilling events in the first six weeks of the 2019 season and the popular paved Lehighton ¼-mile oval is all set for another action packed night of short track stock car racing this coming Saturday evening, May 18 with a six division program of Modifieds, Late Models, Street Stocks, Dirt Mods, Pro 4s and Hobby Stocks. Race time is 6:00 pm.
Getting things rolling will be the postponed Late Model feature from May 4 and then a complete series of heats and features will follow.
At intermission Kids Big Wheel races sponsored by Hobby Stock driver Phil Sabatine and Street Stocker Brennen Coulter will be held.
Front gates open at 4:00 pm. Adult grandstand admission is $14, $2 off for students, seniors 65+ and active military. Children under 10 are free. Pits will open at 11:30 am. Early paid practice ($25 per car) will be from 12:30 to 3:30. Regular warm-ups begin at 4:15. Pit admission $25 members, $35 non-members. Driver sign-ins will be from 3:00 to 4:15.
The rain-postponed Street Stock feature from the May 4 Ward Crozier Sr. memorial that was to be run on this night has been rescheduled for a later date. The reason is due to unanticipated situation with the track’s tire supplier. In order to be fair to those teams management feels this was the proper thing to do at this time.
The Street Stocks will be in the spotlight the following Saturday, May 25 with a 75-lap/$1000-to-win main event.
The annual Fan Appreciation Night is then next on the calendar, all set for Saturday, June 1 at 5:00 pm. The admission is just $8 for a night of all seven divisions.
