(LEHIGHTON, PA 7-7-10) Itís time to play another round of 7 Card Stud at Mahoning Valley Speedway.

Saturday night, July 11starting at 6:00 p.m. it will be Hand Two of the Modified 7 Card Stud 100 which means another star-studded field will be on hand for 100 laps of feature racing and as usual the stakes will be high with $3000 on the line going to the winner.

Hand One saw Bobby Jones pass Eric Beers and lead the final 45 circuits to claim his first 100-lap Mahoning win. He brings with him an Ace of Diamonds into Hand Two.

Thus far Beers has led the most laps in both 100-lap races this year only to come up short each time. No doubt the all-time winner in extra distance races (6) at Mahoning will be primed to cash in on the top prize.

As always there are the top weekly stars such as point leader and three-time 2010 winner John Bennett along with Donny Wagner, Chip Santee, Lonnie Behler, Brian DeFebo and Tyler Haydt to name a few.

Then there are the invaders such as track record holder Zane Zeiner, Matt Hirschman, Earl Paulus, John Markovic and Anthony Sesely.

Time trials will lock the top 12 into the grid. They will then be inverted for the start. All
others will race in heats and a consi.

Also on the card will be the Street Stocks, Pro4 Late Models, Dirt Modifieds and the first appearance of the season for the XCEL Chassis 600 Modifieds. The Late Models have the night off.

Mahoning is the only asphalt track that these popular scaled touring mods race at and their previous races at the Lehighton quarter-mile have been very close and ultra competitive.

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.
