Free Pocono Raceway tickets + TQ Midgets highlight upcoming card at Mahoning Valley Speedway

(LEHIGHTON, PA 5-8-11) Race fans coming out to Mahoning Valley Speedway on Saturday night, May 14 will not only get to see some great pavement short track action, they will also be treated to superspeedway racing as well at Pocono Raceway in Long Pond.
Thanks to the generosity of Pocono Raceway’s Mattioli family, as part of Pocono Raceway Night at the Lehighton ¼-mile oval, the first 300 adult paying fans attending the races that evening will receive a free general admission ticket to attend the June 11 Pocono ARCA 200, an 80-lap, 200-mile ARCA Series presented by Menards race. It is the lead-in event to the Pocono 500 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race the following day at the 2.5-mile Tricky Triangle.
There will also be NASCAR Sprint Cup pole qualifying that takes place prior to the ARCA race.
Furthermore, Mahoning race fans will also be eligible to win free Terrace Grandstand race day tickets to the June 12 Pocono 500.
The May 15 card at Mahoning will also be highlighted by the touring ATQMRA 3/4-Midgets which will be making the first of five 2011 visits to the track.
Last year the time-honored club returned to Mahoning Valley after a five year absence and it was nothing short of an amazing night of racing.
The club ran twin 20-lap features in a combined 6:30 plus Paul Lotier, Jr., set a new track speed mark at a blistering 8.954-seconds which was just over 100 mph.
All regular track classes, which are Modifieds, Late Models, Street Stocks, Dirt Modifieds and Pro4 Late Models, will also be in action. Race time is 6:00 pm. Grandstands opens at 4:00.
A second Pocono Raceway Night at Mahoning Valley will be held on July 16.
