IMPERIAL, Pa. — The NDRL Northeast Late Model Series and NDRL Modifieds will contest a pair of events at Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway this season.
The first will be the Herb Scott Memorial on Saturday, July 27. The $5,000 to-win event will pay homage to the late Hall of Famer Herb Scott, who finished his illustrious racing career with a remarkable 520 feature wins between 1948 and 1979.
The half-mile dirt track will then host the NDRL Northeast Late Models and the NDRL Modifieds for a second time on Saturday, Aug. 16 for the annual Red Miley Rumble. That race will also pay the late model winner $5,000 and the modified winner $1,000.
The Red Miley Rumble honors the late pioneer in western Pennsylvania racing, who started the Miley family racing team back in 1969 at the tender age of 16. After 20 years of racing with brother Ben, Red started Miley Motor Sports with other Miley family members and leased out the famed Imperial oval. Miley Motor Sports took over Pittsburgh’s PA Motor Speedway in 1989. Red lost his 18-month battle with melanoma in 2007.
