Lebanon Valley’s Chris Kokosa Aims
to Make More History at the Moody Mile
BELCHERTOWN, MA – September 17, 2015 -- With the demise of dirt racing at the New York State Fairgrounds made official earlier this week by DirtCar Motorsports, an unlikely Sportsman driver is dusting off his firesuit and helmet in an attempt to make more Dirt Track history in the last race ever at “Moody Mile” #OneMoreTime.
Chris Kokosa was a Sportsman staple at
Lebanon Valley Speedway from 1992 through 1999. In 2000 he ran in both the
Modified and Sportsman divisions at the classic, high-banked oval and then
returned to the Sportsman ranks full time again in 2006 and ‘07 with a
sprinkling of travelling modified races in the between years. He racked up 24
career feature wins, 4th on the all-time Sportsman win list at
Lebanon. Chris put his racing career on hold those non-race years to start a
business and a family. But, as is typically the case, the racing desire has
never really left him. It’s always been in his blood.
Fast forward now, to 2015 and the proclaimed end of the Moody Mile. The last chance for a long-time competitor to post another “W” in the Win column at Super Dirt Week and make a mark in history as the only two-time winner and the only Lebanon Valley winner at the Mile, Forever. Chris had to make this happen.
Chris and his crew members, some old and
some new, headed up by long-time friend and competitor Mike Middleton, are
pulling together for one last #FinaleAtTheFairgrounds and hoping to leave their
exclamation mark in history at the legendary Super Dirt Week mile.
