MEITZLER, WHITMOYER, SNYDER AND SCHLOSBERG WIN NASCAR FEATURES AT GRANDIEW

BECHTELSVILLE, PA
~ Terry Meitzler, a past champion, had been thinking about
retiring. The Berks Products sponsored team had been struggling but with a new
Higbie racer being used for the first time everything seemed to come together on
Saturday night at Grandview Speedway when the Kutztown racer was able to drive
the Dennis Bailey owned No. 81 to victory in the 30-lap Hatfield Quality Meats
Night NASCAR 358 Modified. The victory, the first since July 19, 2008 for
Meitzler, earned the team $2750 including $250 in bonus bucks from TP Trailers
in Limerick, PA

 Craig Whitmoyer of Hamburg drove his
Engle Body/Huber Fabrication No. 99 to his first win of the season in the 25-lap
main event for the Sportsman racers. The win for the one armed racer tightened
his grip on second place in the point
standings.

 Danny Snyder (Green Lane) took
advantage of a late race spin by leader Mike Kellner to grab the lead and ride
to victory with the Rhoads Brothers Livestock Hauling No. 4 in the regular
25-lap NASCAR Late Model feature race. The rained out 25-lapper for Late Models
was won by Sam Schlosberg (Green Lane) at the wheel of his own Green Lane Auto
Sales No. 70.

 In the 30-lap main event for the
NASCAR 358 Modifieds Justin Grim set the early pace. A five car accident in Turn
1 on the third circuit closed up the 28 car field behind the leader putting Tim
Buckwalter and Todd Smith in the thick of the battle. With four laps in the
record book Buckwalter, a past ARDC Midget champion, took the lead. Buckwalter
continued to be the leader until the 13th lap when a two car accident
on the backstretch eliminated defending champion Duane Howard. On the restart
Don Norris Jr. charged to the front with Doug Manmiller and Terry Meitzler
challenging. The final laps of the main event had Norris and his Limerick Diner
No. 976 and Meitzler in a side-by-side battle for the win. With four laps
remaining Meitzler was able to put his racer in front of the field and ride to a
popular with the fans victory. Second place was earned by Don Norris
(Douglassville) just a few feet behind. Doug Manmiller (Shoemakerville) grabbed
third followed by Modified division point leader Craig VonDohren (Oley) and nine
time champion Jeff Strunk (Pottstown) still searching for his first win of the
season.

 In Victory Lane a very happy winner
celebrated with his cigar chomping car owner Dennis Bailey and told fans that
had actually been considering retiring. He did not think he was going to get a
win again.
