Mahoning Valley Revving Up For 2014


LEHIGHTON, Pa. – The dust has barely settled on the season ending Octoberfast 2013 at Mahoning Valley Speedway and the popular paved quarter mile oval is already looking ahead to next season.

Not one to rest on his laurels, track promoter Floyd Santee has set April 12, 2014 as the official season kickoff date. Race time is 6 p.m.

In typical Santee style, the year will be ushered in with an impressive line-up of feature races that will include a 100-lap race for the headline modifieds paying $4,000 to win, the most ever offered for a Mahoning 100 lapper.

Also on the evening’s card will be a pair of 50 lappers for the late models and street stocks with $1,200 and $1,000 respectively going to the winners, plus there will be a 40 lap dirt modified show with $1,000 awaiting the first to cross the finish line.

The 2013 Awards Banquet will take place on Jan. 25, 2014 at the Northampton Community Center in Northampton, Pa. Doors open at 5 p.m. and dinner will be served at 6 p.m. Cost of tickets is $55 each. Tickets must be ordered no later than Dec. 28.
