Fall Brawl to close out Mahoning Valley Speedway season

Mahoning Valley Speedway will bring the curtain down on the 2022 season with the second running of the Fall Brawl taking place on Saturday, October 22 and fans will be treated to a rousing line-up as Modifieds, Late Models, Street Stocks, Dirt Modifieds, Pro 4s, Hobby Stocks and Futures will be in action with extra-distance features and added payouts for all.

Race time is 3:00 pm.

The Modifieds will be covering a distance of 68 laps and a $3000 top prize, $2200 for second, $1050 for 10th and $800 to take the green.

Brain DeFebo is the defending Fall Brawl Modified champ, taking the victory ahead of Don Wagner and Bobby Jones. 

This year the Late Models have been added and will contest in a 50 lap feature paying $2000-to-win, $1000 for second and $250 to start. Thanks to several key sponsors that stepped up to help make this race possible the attention has been great to say the least with teams from near and far having marked their calendars to be at Mahoning.

The Street Stocks are also set to run in a 50-lapper with the winner receiving $1200. TJ Gursky wrapped up his 2021 championship season with a victory in last year’s event and will no doubt be a factor once again although as always a stout field will be on hand, the trademark of the class and undoubtedly a close-filled affair from start to finish will take place.

Making a return to the Mahoning pavement are the Dirt Modifieds which will comprise of 358, Open Sportsman and 602 Crate Sportsman cars racing in a 25-lap main. The dirt Modifieds must run an all dirt setup and rest assured this will be a must see feature as driver skills will be put to the test.

Pro 4 racers are also getting to chance to showcase their talents during the Fall Brawl with a 25 lap event.

A big show at Mahoning wouldn’t be complete without having the popular Hobby Stocks. They will get 35 laps to chase down the $500 winner’s take.

The Futures will round out the program with a 25 lap run.
