DIRT 358s Join Super Lates at Little Valley.

The Super Late Models return for the second week in a row and their final race, as the season winds down at Little Valley Speedway. A full card of racing will be held on Saturday, September 7th at 6:00 PM, an hour earlier than the usual starting time. Topping the list will be the lightning fast Super Late Models, vying for the top prize of $2500 for 25 laps, and continuing their quest for the point title, which will be decided that night. Dick Barton, Bob Close, Todd Andrews, and Ron Davies all have legitimate shots at the title, with Barton and Close neck and neck for the lead.

Also appearing at the speedway for their annual shootout are the 358 modifieds, who will be gunning for a winner's check of $2500 for 25 laps, and a coveted qualifying spot at Syracuse for Super Dirt Week, and the All Star Race at Fulton during the Victoria 200 Weekend. Originally advertised as a guaranteed starting spot in the Victoria 200, Fulton officials departed from past practice and created the All Star format to reduce the number of guaranteed cars in the field. All those who qualify for the All Star event will get $300 to start.

The Super Stocks led by Bill Holmes, who has a commanding lead, will run 20 laps, and with two races remaining, anything can happen. The race for second is hot, with Steve Watson, Bob Dixon, Kyle Bradigan, and the ageless Ron Baker all in serious contention. The Street Stocks, with Wayne Mohawk and Jim Kennerknecht leading the way, will race 15 laps, with the championship still in doubt. The school buses will round out the card. Remember, racing will start at 6:00PM, with the gates opening at 3:00.

Tickets for this event are $15 for adults, with those under 12 admitted free. As always, there is free camping on the grounds.
