Seekonk, MA — On October 9, 10 & 11, Seekonk Speedway will hose the 18th annual DAV Fall Classic. There will be plenty of invaders coming to town for this event. Co-headlining the weekend will be the True Value Modifieds, NEMA Midgets, NEMA Lites and Pro4 Modifieds. They will be joined by open competition racing for Pro Stocks/Super Late Models, Late Models, Seekonk Sport Trucks/Mini Stocks and Street Stocks. Our Fast Friday classes will also be a part of the action, as the Seekonk Youth Racing Association, Pure Stocks and Sport4 divisions will be running.
Friday, October 9 will feature an open practice session for all divisions participating in the Fall Classic, as sanctioning bodies will allow. This has provided competitors that normally run elsewhere a chance to get acclimated with the tricky 1/3 mile.
Saturday will start with practice followed by qualifying for all divisions. Heats and consolations will be run as needed. On Saturday, features will be run for the Pro4 Modifieds, NEMA Lites, Pure Stocks, Seekonk Youth Racing Association 750 and 600 classes, and the Sport4 divisions.
Closing out Saturday’s events will be the Kraze’s Speed Equipment Pro4 Powder Puff race in The Race Against Cancer, featuring the ladies of the Pro4 Modifieds. This Powder Puff race will be the 1st Annual Race for a Cure for the Pro4 ladies. In a charity event that has been run once at the 4 Cylinder Nationals, Gary Sagar and the Pro4 community wanted to give Southern New England a chance to help in the Brest Cancer Awareness cause. Al proceeds and donations will go directly to the Race Against Cancer.
Sunday will feature twin 100’s for the True Value Modifieds and the Pro Stocks. The Pro Stocks have been a staple at Seekonk Speedway since 1979, headlining the speedway from 1980 until the present. This race has become a fan favorite over the years, as competitors and champions from the Northeast compete against the Seekonk greats. The TVMRS are winding down their season, and with only one more race on their schedule, each position weighs heavily in the chase for the title. Also running main events are the NEMA Midgets, open competition racing for the Late Models, Street Stocks and Seekonk Sport Trucks/Mini Stocks.
