Denny Soltis, of Torrington, C.T., made history on Saturday, September 2nd behind the wheel of his Bicknell No.1X at Lebanon Valley Speedway.


After winning his heat race, Soltis lined up on the front row next to John Ruchel for the initial green flag for the 30-lap main event.


Soltis immediately jumped out to an early lead. Soltis never looked back and went on to win by 3.877 seconds over Ruchel.


The Lebanon Valley veteran made his way back to victory lane since his last win in 2002. At age 74, Soltis made history by becoming the oldest driver to ever win a feature at The Valley.


Many may not know the veterans history, but Soltis’ first race at the high-banks was back in July of 1975. Soltis has seen his fair share of laps around the fast ½ mile, clay oval.


Soltis may have dabbled into some sprint car racing and some drag racing over his racing career and slowed down a bit to be with his family, but it wasn’t until six years ago that he came back to what he knows best; Big Block Modifieds.


Soltis may be the oldest driver to have won a feature at Lebanon Valley but he is a driver who has nothing to prove.


“We are so happy that we could be a part of such a special win,” said Bicknell Racing Products partner, Bob Slack. “We pride ourselves in dealing with rookies to veterans and Denny is a true veteran.”


Everyone at Bicknell Racing Products would like to congratulate Denny Soltis on making history and taking his Bicknell Racing Products No. 1X to victory lane at Lebanon Valley Speedway.
