Race of Champions Modified Series Set for Different Type of Event at Mahoning Valley Speedway Sunday, May 19, 2024

Race of Champions and Mahoning Valley Speedway Modified competitors are gearing up to return to Mahoning Valley Speedway for a unique event this Sunday, May 19.

Series and Track Management are awarding “show up” points to competitors so they may lay it all on the line and go for a victory in the 100-lap event where only one (1) set of tires will be required. The race, the “Spring Zing” 100 will take center stage Sunday afternoon at 4:00 pm.

The event will be 100-laps and will not count caution laps with double-file racing through the completion of lap 90. Qualifying will be traditional group green-white-checker qualifying along with ten (10) lap qualifying races and a redraw. Driver’s will have to manage their tires throughout the duration of the event with no tire changes for the race.

“We are looking forward to it,” stated Jack Ely from Wall, NJ, who earned his first Series victory last year at Mahoning and finished second in the season ending championship standings. “Mahoning is tricky. It can be a great track or it can jump and bite you. It’s fast and multiple groove and our Series is extremely competitive so Sunday’s race along with the Mahoning regulars will prove to be very exciting.”

Qualifying for the 100-lap event will begin at 4:00pm on Sunday, May 19 along with a full card of Mahoning racing. Modified competitors are invited to practice at the track on Saturday.
