CRAIG WHITMOYER WINS FREEDOM 38 ROC SPORTSMAN RACE AND DAVE BROWN IS TOPS IN TRSR SPRINT FEATURE AT GRANDVIEW SPEEDWAY ON FRIDAY NIGHT

  45th Annual Freedom 76 Modified
Classic, paying $25,000 to win, set for tonight

BECHTELSVILLE, PA September 12, 2015 . . . Ending a victory drought
of over two seasons in, Craig Whitmoyer, finally, found the way to Victory Lane,
once again, Friday evening at Grandview Speedway, in the second annual Race of
Champions Freedom 38?er for the Race of Champions Sportsman division. For the
Hamburg, PA resident, it was his first win at the Bechtelsville track since July
20, 2013.

In a
companion 25-lap main event for the TSRS 305 Sprint Cars, Dave Brown was the
winner after going out in front just prior to halfway and, easily, racing away
from the competition. For Brown it was his second win of the season. His other
triumph came on May 24, 2015 in a Thunder on The Hill
event.

On the
original green in the Sportsman 38-lap feature, a 6-car tangle in turn 2

close second. Whitmoyer, who started third, used the high outside lane racing
off turn 4 on lap 7 to drive by Lilick and become the new race leader. Lilick
dropped to second, with Kenny Hammond third.

On lap 13
the caution appeared for Jim Britt spinning in turn 4, bunching the
field.

With the
green it was the 40-year-old Whitmoyer racing out in front again, as Brad Arnold
quickly advanced to second, with Lilick now
third.

As the laps
clicked off, 35-year-old Brad Brightbill, who went to the tail of the field as
part of that first lap tangle, began to make his way through the competition. By
lap 18 the Sinking Spring, PA racer was up to sixth. After 19 circuits he was
fifth and after 21 tours, Brightbill had climbed into
fourth.

With 24
down, Brightbill was now running third behind Arnold, with Whitmoyer a full
straightaway out in front.

On lap 30,
Brightbill caught Arnold, but the second-generation driver had his problems
trying to find a way around Arnold. On lap 33, Brightbill went high, through
turn 1 and turn 2 racing through l
