(LEHIGHTON, PA 4-23-11) Rainouts – 2….Races – 0. That’s the score so far at Mahoning Valley Speedway as for the second time in as many weeks the season opener has been called due to the weather.

Because of all day rain forecasted, speedway officials called off Saturday night’s April 23 races which were to be highlighted by Hand One of the Modified 100 Poker Series feature. Included on the card where the Late Models, Street Stocks, Dirt Mods and Pro4 Late Models.

Hoping the third time will be the charm, Mahoning Valley Speedway now looks ahead to Saturday, April 30 as the first official race night of 2011.

It will be a regular show for all track classes as well as the Micro Stocks which will be making the first of seven appearances this season. Race time is 6:00 p.m.

Because of the past two week setbacks there is a slight revision for the 100 lap Modified Poker Series events. Hand One will now be run on May 21 with Hand Two set for June 18. The remaining three 100’s will remain as planned, July 2, August 20 and October 1.

The first of two 35-lap wild card Poker Series races will take place May 7. That same night will see the season debut of the 4c Super Modifieds.

Coming up on May 14 the exciting and very popular ATQMRA TQ Midgets will be in action for the first of five 2011 visits to the Lehighton paved quarter mile oval.
