Valenti Modified Racing Series Set For Lee’s Oktoberfest
Canaan, NH. – The Valenti Modified Racing Series, dormant since Labor Day weekend, returns to action this holiday weekend when Lee USA Speedway, Lee, NH, welcomes the series to its 34th annual ‘Oktoberfest’ of racing event. The open wheel modified tour will be making its 14th appearance at the traditional season ending program for the New Hampshire Speedway. The series will compete in a 75-lap feature race.
The 75-lap run is a break from what had become the norm at Lee. Twin 50-lap features were tried three years ago and proved to be successful. Both fans and competitors liked the concept. The thought of a 75-lap race was tried at Beech Ridge Motor Speedway in Maine in August. That format met with approval and was suggested for the Lee race given the amount of races on the schedule at the annual October event.

Anthony Nocella Looking for Repeat Stafford Victory in VMRS 80
(Stafford Springs, CT)—As the Valenti Modified Series prepares to return to Stafford Speedway for the second time in 2017 on Friday, September 1st for the VMRS 80, things could not be going any better for Anthony Nocella, driver of the #92 Nocella Paving Chevrolet. Nocella won the first VMRS race at Stafford back in May and he just won the series’ most recent race at Beech Ridge to extend his lead in the VMRS championship standings.
“We started out going real good this season and then we had a few tough races and then we won again this past weekend so I think we’ll have a pretty good chance,” said Nocella. “It’s always tough racing when you go to Stafford. There’s a lot of good cars and guys who race there weekly are always tough to beat. If we can come back with the car prepared just like it was and if it runs like it did back in May then I think we’ll have a decent shot at getting another win or at least a top-3 finish.” (more…)
