The Super DIRTcar Series Caps Off Lebanon Valley's Modified Season

Just like that, the season is beginning to come to an end at Lebanon Valley Speedway. We’re already at Labor Day weekend. That means the final races of the season for the Modified and Pro Stock classes are at hand this weekend. The final race of the Modified season at Lebanon Valley just so happens to be the biggest one of all. The annual Mr. Dirt Track U.S.A. is a 101-lap race run as a round of the Super DIRTcar Series. It is one of the richest races in the series as $25,500 is the winner’s share of the purse. Regular points will not be on the line for Lebanon Valley regulars. Instead, appearance points will be on offer. Kenny Tremont Jr. will claim the 2019 Modified track championshi

Eddie Marshall Claims First Win of 2019; Kenny Tremont Jr. All But Clinches Modified Title

Saturday night was the final night of regular points for the Modifieds at Lebanon Valley. Kenny Tremont Jr. entered the night with a 30-point lead and needed to finish 13th or better to effectively clinch the title. Earning an extra $1000 from Bedell Racing Engines before even cranking his motor made things that much better. Mike King started from the pole and ran well early on. Matt Pupello was also quick in his Grand Premier-sponsored No. 42P, but he went a little too fast into turn 3 on the first lap. Pupello drifted up and into the wall to bring out the first yellow. Pupello was able to coax the car back to the pits, but was unable to continue. Once the race restarted, Eddie Marshal

L.J. Lombardo Snags Victory At The Last Second

John Ruchel started from the pole and led early in his No. 7 Bicknell. Brian Berger was able to quickly move up to second and brought the pressure to Ruchel’s bumper bar. What followed was about 10 laps of Berger trying to get past Ruchel. He would dive to the inside multiple times, but was unable to get past. Further back, L.J. Lombardo was methodically making his way forward, moving up to third by lap 10. By lap 20, Ruchel was able to finally shake Berger and open up a small gap. That allowed L

Kenny Tremont Jr. Is One With The Legends, Takes 4th Win of 2019

Saturday night was Legends Night at the Valley. A number of past racers at Lebanon Valley returned for a reunion, complete with classic race cars. The Modified feature saw John Ruchel start from pole after winning his heat race. His advantage did not last long as Kyle Armstrong, racing his backup car after his primary was destroyed last week, swept past on the first lap. The early portion of the feature was a start and stop affair. First, Ricky Davis hit the wall in turn 2 to bring out a yellow. Shortly after the restart, a crash in turn 4 collected Andy Bachetti, Marc Johnson, L.J. Lombardo and Eddie Marshall. Marshall was forced to retire, while the others were able to continue. Very
