BECHTELSVILLE, PA September 8, 2011 . . . The championships in NASCAR 358 Modifieds and Late Models will be decided at Grandview Speedway on Saturday night (September 10). A full slate of qualifying events will lead up to a 30-lap feature for the NASCAR 358 Modifieds and a 20-lap main event for the Late Models.
In addition there will be a 15-lap race for the Vince’s Towing Legends Owners. This is a race that has been rained out twice this season so everyone has their fingers crossed. In addition to cash and a trophy the winner will receive 10 gallons of fuel from Kelly Racing Fuels and a $75 product certificate from BFP Specialty.
FANS ARE ASKED TO BRING AN AMERICAN FLAG…stand tall for the National Anthem….and sing as we honor the ten year anniversary of 9/11. The lovely Brittany Doyen will sing the National Anthem.
In the NASCAR 358 Modifieds the point battle is down to current point leader Jeff Strunk and second place Craig VonDohren. Strunk has a huge lead but it is possible a major miscue on his part could bump him out of his ninth title and keep car owner Norm Hansell from getting his first Grandview title.
In the Late Models Chuck Schutz has a lock on his fifth title but there are several drivers in the top ten that could move up in the finishing order and that means extra point fund money when the checks are give out at the annual banquet on November 19th.
For the Modified racers it is a final opportunity to get their equipment in shape for the Saturday, September 17th BPG Racing Freedom 76 Classic with $20,000 plus lap money going to the winner. There could be 60 or more racers on hand trying for a starting spot in the 41st annual classic.
Dirt track legends such as Billy Pauch, Stewart Friesen, Jimmy Horton, Keith Hoffman and others will be at Grandview to challenge the regulars such as Strunk, VonDohren, Howard, Godown, Gular and a long list of other talents.
