COASTAL 181 ANNOUNCES RELEASE OF BOOK ON HISTORY OF LEBANON VALLEY SPEEDWAY:
Newburyport, Mass., October 31, 2018 – Motorsports publisher Coastal 181 announced today the release of “MODIFIEDS OF THE VALLEY: A History of Racing at Lebanon Valley Speedway,” by Lew Boyd. It is the newest in a long string of popular racing books presented by the company over the last 18 years, focused on recording and preserving the color and drama of open-wheel and short-track racing across the United States.
New York’s Lebanon Valley Speedway is one of the most iconic tracks in the country. Boyd details comprehensively how the track gradually evolved from a gloomy start in a rural cornfield in 1953 to the successful and lively center for motorsports that it is today. The Valley has become particularly well-known for the high-banked turns on its half-mile clay and for the blistering speeds attained by the Big Block Modifieds and Sprint Cars.
The history is laid out decade by decade, illustrated with close to 300 full-color and black-and-white photographs and filled with colorful anecdotes about drivers and their cars – and the incredible action they produced, whether glorious or tragic.
Hully Bunn, Howie Westervelt, Doug Garrison, Frankie Schneider, Tommy Corellis, Dickie Larkin, the Tremonts, Flachs, Quinns, Marshalls, Brett Hearn, Andy Bachetti, and JR Heffner are just a few of the competitors profiled.
The 252-page volume is the perfect holiday gift for anyone who has ever visited the Speedway, as well as any race fan interested in the evolution and true nature of today’s finest dirt-track racing.
“MODIFIEDS OF THE VALLEY,” priced at $29.95, can be ordered online at www.coastal181.com or by calling Coastal 181 at 877-907-8181 toll free. The website, updated daily, includes over 1500 other motorsports books and DVDs, as well as hundreds of photos and racing commentaries.

Frankie Schneider Passes
Photo By Ace Lane Sr - Provided By Stan Zemenak
The racing community is saddened by the news of the passing of all time racing great Frankie Schneider.
There are 1000's and 1000's who try their hand at short track racing.... but only one worthy of the title, "The Old Master."
Frankie's skill behind the wheel, and ingenuity in the garage earned him win after win throughout the 40's, 50's, 60's & 70's.... Wherever Frankie raced, whether on dirt or asphalt... small track or big track.... it didn't matter. All would learn why he was truly "The Old Master."

New from Coastal 181:
The Number 43 chronicles the triumphs and trials of Wild Bill Greco, a legendary Northeastern short-track stock car driver. His success on the racetrack reveals much about his determination, drive, and desire to achieve success, but a look at the man behind the helmet and fire suit exposes a paradoxical figure who inspires and infuriates, embraces and battles, and ultimately, who steals the heart of all who truly get to know him. Be prepared to have your heart stolen, too!

Congratulations to Izzy Lowden

12 year old Izzy Lowden won her feature event at Blue Mountain last Friday 8/24 in the Senior Animal division. Izzy is a 3rd generation racer, with her dad Billy Lowden (current Mahoning Valley racer, having wheeled dirt modifieds at OCFS, NES, etc), and Izzy's grandfather Bill Lowden, who ran at Wall and East Windsor back in the 70's and early 80's.
Izzy has won before, and has quite a few 2nd place finishes in the books, but it's always great to be back in victory lane! With a few more events scheduled in the upcoming month, look for Izzy to have a few more in victory lane photo ops!
