    Mahoning Valley Speedway Announces “Trick-or-Treat 200”

    (LEHIGHTON, PA 8-23-09) With the rain that forced the cancellation of this past Saturday night’s Hand Four of the Modified 100 Poker Series race as well s the continuation of Hand Three at Lehighton’s Mahoning Valley Speedway, a revision to the schedule has now been made to accommodate those events.

    The still-to-be completed 63 laps of Hand Three will now be held on October 3. That same night will be Hand Four of the Poker Series. All regular track classes, Late Models, Street Stocks, Pro4 Late Models and Dirt Modifieds will also be in action for their final point races of the season.

    Now, in order to fulfill the five race Poker Series so an overall champ can be crowned, a new date had to be found and after carefully looking at what is available, it has been decided that Saturday afternoon October 31 will be the 2009 curtain call event at Mahoning.

    Being dubbed, “The Trick-or-Treat 200” there will be a pair of 200-lap feature races, one for the Modifieds and the other for the Street Stocks.

    Not only will it be Hand Five for the Modified 100 Poker Series, it is also a double-point event for the class which will determine the this year’s track champion.

    As is the case for all 100-lappers the winner’s jackpot will be $3000. Plus it will be time to show the hands of the players that raced in all of the Poker races and see who walks away with the $2500 top prize along with $1500 for second best and $1000 for third.

    Keeping in mind that night is Halloween, there will be a 2:00 p.m. start so enough time is there to run both features and have the youngsters back home for trick-or-treating.

    The track is planning special treats for the kids that day and after the races are over they are invited to bring their treat bags into the pits and meet the drivers.

    The Modifieds will run time trials with the top-12 locked into the main. All others will compete in heats and a consolation.

    The Street Stocks will run heats to determine their starting grid. The winner’s share will be announced shortly. All Street Stocks racers are welcome to compete.

    Racing action at Mahoning continues this Saturday night at 6:00 p.m. with all regular track classes plus the postponed July 25 Late Model and Street Stock features. Also on the card will be the 4c Super Mods.

    On Saturday night, September 5 the fifth annual Street Stock 100 will be held. Joining the Streeters will be all regular track classes plus the Sportsman Micro Stocks. The postponed July 25 Dirt Modified feature will also be run.

    Mahoning Valley Speedway is conveniently located just west of Lehighton on PA Route 443. For additional updates and information log onto or call the track office at 570-386-4900.

    Wait so is this two 200 lap races, for 400 laps total, or two 100 lap races one for each class?

    And if it is two 200 lap races are they going to have a halfway break in the middle?
