Little Valley Speedway Ready For May 29th Opener

Little Valley Speedway, the only true half mile dirt track in the region, is prepared for the opening program in its five race “Special Events” format, hosting the Memorial Day Late Model Special, sponsored by Close Racing Supply, on Sunday, May 29th at 6:30. Highlighting the busy event will be the very popular Super Late Models, racing for $3,000 to win. Also on the card are the 360 Late Models, with their third annual Mike “Duke” Duclon Memorial named for the racing pioneer, who became known as the “Father of the Super Stocks,” by redesigning the Limited Late Models into Super Stocks, which have since been dubbed 360 Late Models. They will race for $1558 to win. The Crate Late Models will also be on hand with a $1000 payout to the winner, plus the highly competitive E-Mods, looking for $750 to win, and the Street Stocks seeking a $300 top prize.

Admission for this ambitious program is only $14 for adults, with those under 12 admitted free. Pit passes are $30. Gates open at 3:30, with hot laps at 5:30 and racing at 6:30. Fan amenities include a covered grandstand with stadium seats, great food, including the famous pizza and “two hand” fried dough, along with other fare. There is free parking and free camping with hookups.

Little Valley Speedway is located on the grounds of the Cattaraugus County Fair on Rt. 353 in Little Valley, NY, just north of the Salamanca exit of I-86 and only eight miles west of the resort town of Ellicottville on US 62. Follow Rt. 242 out of Ellicottville to Rt. 353 and head north a short distance to the track. Other attractions in the area include The Seneca Casino in Salamanca, Alleghany
State Park, a jewel of the New York State park system, and the Kinzua Reservoir.
