(LEHIGHTON, PA 6-28-10) The 2010 class of Street Stock racers has been amazing this year at Mahoning Valley Speedway with weekly car counts that have been averaging 25 and along with that an equally high average of competition.

In 11 races thus far there have been only two repeat winners. They are most recent victory Jason Frey and current point leader and reigning champion Randy Ahner, Jr.

The racing has been so intense that Ahner, Jr., is the only driver in the top five in points to have a win.

Each week the 25-lap features are jam packed with race-long side-by-side action and now these highly competitive talents will get to showcase their abilities in a special 100-lap main this coming Saturday night, July 3. Race time is 6:00 p.m.

The $1000-to-win Star Spangled 100 will be the headline feature. The Street Stockers will run time trials which will determine to top-12. All others will run in heats and consolations.
Bill Hunara holds the current track record of 11.492-second set on September 1, 2007. That was also a 100-lapper that day in which he won as well as that yearís title.

Hunara also owns another 100 lap win while others who have scored in the extra distance showdowns include all-time class winner Todd Ahner, Lonnie Behler, Jon Moser and Ahner, Jr. With the exception of Todd Ahner, each time a Street Stock driver has won a 100-lap race they have gone on to win the championship that same year.

If 100 laps of Street Stocks racing isnít enough there is more to be had with a pair of 35-lap mains for the Modifieds.

The night will open with the make-up feature from May 29 and then a regular feature will be run as well.

It has been one great Modified feature after another so far including the barnburner from last Saturday night where Anthony Sesely used a wild three-wide pass to take the lead and ultimately the win.

Also on the card will be the Late Models, Dirt Mods and Pro4 Late Models.

On Saturday night, July 10, Hand Two of the Modified 100 7 Card Stud Poker Series resumes along with the Street Stocks, Dirt Mods, Pro4 Late Models and the first appearance of the year by the 600 Modifieds. The Late Models have that night off.

Mahoning Valley Speedway, run under the direction of the husband and wife team of Doug and Gena Hoffman, is located on PA route 443, two miles west of Lehighton.
