LITTLE VALLEY, NY – When Stateline Speedway suffered a rain-out on September 12th after a highly successful re-opening on September 5th, officials reached out to Little Valley Speedway regarding next weekend, September 18th and 19th. The result was that Stateline will run their rained out program on Friday, the 18th, a date when Little Valley had originally scheduled a show “TBA,” while Little Valley's popular season ending Super Late Model/358 Modified Special Doubleheader will run, as planned, on the 19th . The result is that Super Late Model drivers will now have a good reason to run both shows. With each track posting $3,000 to win for their respective Super Late Model features, Stateline is posting $1,000 bonus to any SLM driver who wins both races for a hefty $7,000 weekend.
Little Valley's program gets under way at 6:30. Gates open at 3:30, with hot laps at 5:30. Adult admission is $14, with those under 12 admitted free. Pit passes for this event are $30.
Champions in all regular divisions will be crowned at the end of the evening. Mike Knight leads in the Super Late Models by a scant two points over Greg Oakes, with Dutch Davies and Chad Valone only eight back. Bruce Miller is ahead of Bill Holmes by a narrow six points in the 360 Late Models, while Brent Rhebergen holds a tight six point lead over Vic Vena and seven over Dan Davies. In the Crate Late Models, Bryce Davis reigns over three challengers, Brad Mesler, Paul Grigsby, and Mike Wonderling, who lurk eight points behind. The 358s will be led by regulars from Woodhull pitted against rivals from Ransomville and Merrittville.
A new rule this year will allow Dirt legal motors to run with or without the chip, with no change in stated weight requirements. Race teams please check the rules under “drivers info” on the Little Valley website- www.littlevalleyspeedway.com.
