Next MASS event benefits environmental education

The next event in the Mid Atlantic Super Series (MASS), the Neshaminy Classic, scheduled for June 17 in Langhorne, Pennsylvania, will raise money to support Idlewood, a nationally recognized environmental station with a 125-acre habitat for songbirds, deer and a variety of wetlands animals. Its trails are also known as some of the best, and hardest, mountain bike trails in the area.

Langhorne is a town once synonymous with speed of another sort. "At one time, Langhorne Speedway was once second only to Indianapolis in terms of importance," said Media Director Ken Getchell, a native of the area. "Indy cars and NASCAR raced here annually and it was known as one of the fastest, most difficult and dangerous places to race cars in all the world."
