GRANDVIEW RACERS DO WELL IN NASCAR NATIONAL STANDINGS FOR 2013

BECHTELSVILLE,
PA?~ Seven time Grandview Speedway NASCAR Whelen All-
American Series 358 Modified champion Craig VonDohren has finished fifth in the
National standings and for the first time in his career the 50-year-old racer is
the NASCAR Whelen All American Series Pennsylvania
champion.

 

The
Oley, PA professional racer was able to win six feature races plus rack up
consistent finishes to claim the track title. He is the all time leader in
regular Saturday night feature wins with 87.

 

VonDohren
was the highest ranked driver in the National points who competed at just a
single NASCAR track during the season. VonDohren drove his self-owned Pioneer
Pole Buildings/VP Racing Fuels No. 1c in gaining the impressive
statistics.

 

The
veteran racer will be invited to participate in the very plush NASCAR Whelen
All-American Series Awards event at the NASCAR Hall of Fame/Charlotte Convention
Center on Friday, December 13.

 

Finishing
sixth in the standings was Duane Howard (Oley, PA) who won an amazing nine
feature races during the 2013 NASCAR 358 Modified season but still fell short in
his quest to win a sixth track title.

 

Under
the point structure for the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series, a race winner
receives two points for every car in the event up to 20 cars. Second place
receives two fewer points and so on through the field. Race winners receive an
additional five points. For example, if 20 cars are in the field, the winner
receives 45 points, second place 38 and third 36. If there are 15 cars, the
winner receives 35 points, second 28 and third, 26.
