Seekonk, MA — On Saturday and Sunday, October 8th & 9th, Seekonk Speedway will honor the Founder of the Action Track of the East, in an event he made famous with the Fall Classic. Pairing up two of the most exciting divisions in the Northeast, open wheel Modifieds, and the full fendered Pro Stocks in twin 100 lap main events.
Headlining the event will be the Valenti Auto Mall Modifieds, as they invade for their second visit of the season. In the 7 previous Fall Classic visits, there has yet to be a repeat winner. Starting with Les Hinckley, Andy Seuss, Dave Berghman, Chris Pasteryak, Vinny Annarummo, Mike Stefanik and Jon McKennedy have all taken home the prestigious DAV Fall Classic hardware.
Joining them on center stage will be the Pro Stocks, in a 100 lap main event. Dave Darling has become one of the favorites in this event, claiming it twice in the past 5 years. Rick Martin is the all time win leader in Fall Classic history, with over 5 wins. Other recent winners of the Pro Stock portion include 6 time Pro Stock Champion Fred Astle, who won his first and only one in 2009, Tom Scully Jr, and Russ Hersey. With most speedways closed down for the season, Seekonk is expecting several invaders to come down and try to take home the $3,000 winners’ share, not to mention the lap money available to the leader of each lap.
