(OAKS, PA. 1-20-19) Eastern Pennsylvania’s two paved short tracks, Evergreen Raceway in St; Johns and Lehighton’s Mahoning Valley Speedway, took advantage at the 2019 PPB Motorsports Race Car & Trade Show in Oaks to announce a special Enduro Car Series to be held between the two facilities during the upcoming season.

Both tracks have had a supportive history of Enduro races over the years and many of those who compete race both speedways. That led to a sparked interest and the concept of the Mahoning Valley Speedway/Evergreen Raceway Small Car Enduro Series.

Points will be tallied for each driver and the top five in the final standings will be awarded the same payout.

The series kicks off on Saturday, March 30 at Evergreen. Then it’s on to Mahoning Valley on Sunday, April 28. Sunday, May 19 race No. 3 moves back to Evergreen. On Sunday, June 16 Mahoning welcomes back the show for round 4 and then Evergreen on Sunday, July 21. The series stays at Evergreen for a Sunday, August 25 event while Mahoning gets a reappearance for the next two on Sunday, September 15 and Sunday, October 20. The conclusion of the inaugural twin-track outing will be Saturday afternoon, November 2 at Evergreen.

The series is open to all 4-cylinder, front wheel drive Enduro cars.

Each track has other racing events slated for all of the aforementioned dates as well.
