The "Fightin' Lehighton" Rick Kirkendall raced to an exciting victory in the first of twin 50 features Saturday night at Mahoning Valley Speedway for round three of the Mahoning Modified Madness Series.
Race number two was postponed due to rain and will be rescheduled at a later date.
The popular Lehighton driver had been away from the racing scene the past few years and returned two weeks ago in Shawn Sitarchyk's SVS Abatement No. 80 car.
"It was very exciting from where I was sitting. I may have been a little rusty but it's just like riding a bike," said Kirkendall.
