Little Valley back in action on August 24th.
On August 24th, Little Valley Speedway will be back in action, after a hiatus for the Cattaraugus County Fair, with a full card of racing action, headlined by the Super Late Models, vying for a $3,000 winner's check. Following a highly successful Tri State Championship Series in conjunction with Raceway 7 and McKean, which was won by Bob Close from Eldred, PA, over Ashville, New York's Dick Barton by a single point, the extremely tight Late Model point chase at Little Valley continues, with Close leading Barton by a mere two points, 72 to 70. With three races remaining, there are a number of drivers in contention, including Todd Andrews from Eldred, PA, and Ron Davies from Warren, PA, who are tied for third with 58 points, plus Scott Haus from Hamburg, PA, and Waterford, PA's Andy Kania, who are tied for fourth with 52 points.
Also on the program will be the Super Stocks, racing for $1,000 to win and for a guaranteed berth in the King of the Hill at Ransomville Speedway on Saturday, September 14th. Bill Holmes from Chaffee currently leads that division, with 74 points, followed by Steve Watson from Coudersport, PA, Bob Dixon from Smethport, PA, and Todd Rice from Eldred, PA, tied for second with 55.
The Street Stocks, led by Jim Kennerknecht from Erie, PA, who has won six of the last eight races at the Little Valley half mile will be competing for $500 to win. Despite winning the last two races Kennerknecht trails Wayne Mohawk from Irving by six points, 75 to 69, with Ted Ingalls from Cuba at 66 and Bergen's Lee Zimmerman at 65 still very much in the hunt.
The school buses will be racing as well, with their unique brand of competition. Kenny Foster from Great Valley has a comfortable lead over Ray Wright from Little Valley in the title chase, 78 to 64, but Wright is trailed closely by Steamburg's Ron Foster, who is only 2 points behind him in third.
Gates open at 4:00, with the first race at 7:00. Tickets are $12 for adults, with those under 12 years old admitted free.
