   The True Value Modified Series returns to All-Star Speedway for the first time in over two years this Saturday night, September 20, and if history repeats itself, there will be some of the best racing for the lead all season long for the series.
   In 2006 it was Les Hinckley and Andy Seuss in a torrid battle for the lead, running side-by-side, lap after lap. Topping that was a TVMRS event in 2005 that had three-time champion Kirk Alexander on the outside of Jim Storace for the lead over a 50-lap span during a memorable 100-lap event.
This race will have the best TVMRS regulars on hand racing for 100 green flag laps in what might be the closest touring series points race in America, with three drivers separated by just three points. Series leaders Chris Pasteryak and Kirk Alexander could benefit from their 2008 All-Star Modified Showdown experiences over third place Mike Holdridge.
   It will also include non-regulars to the TVMRS that promise to fill the field with excitement. All-Star Speedway's own NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Points leader Louie Mechalides is a confirmed entrant, along with Jimmy Kuhn, who has registered top ten finishes in all three 2008 All-Star Modified Showdown events at the track. Others known to be making their first TVMRS appearance in months will be Luke Royea and Mike Douglas Jr.
   Adding to the show this Saturday, All-Star Speedway welcomes the Small-Block Supermodifieds for their first appearance in years at the track where it all began for the winged open cockpit cars. With no racing at Lee Speedway, where they compete weekly, a good field of cars is expected for qualifying races and a feature event.
   Not to be outdone, the Super Streets and Strictly Stocks will be included in the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series program, along with double-trouble as the Fast Fours will run two feature events with their typical three-wide racing to complete the program.
   Admission for this very special event is just $20 for adults, $15 for seniors, and children 10 years and under will be admitted free of charge. The racing program will begin at 6:00PM. The track is located on Route 27 in Epping, NH. For more information log onto: or call (978) 927-1322.
   There are only a few races remaining before winter sets in, so there is no better time than this Saturday, September 20 to take advantage of great weather and great racing at All-Star Speedway for what really is a "True Value" event.
