The Motorsports 2012 Presented by SEF Small Engine Fuels Race Car and Trade Show was a great show. All of us involved with the Grandview Speedway display enjoyed the opportunity to meet so many fans, racers, media and more to talk about the exciting 50th anniversary season that kicks off with a free to the public practice on Saturday, March 31st at noon. All divisions are invited to participate.
Those stopping to visit with us had the opportunity to learn what is happening at Grandview in 2012 including information on the NASCAR 358 Modifieds, Late Models and Sportsman that will be racing just about every Saturday night. And then there was information on the Thunder on the Hill Series, the Sunday Small Car Series, the NEETS Enduros and the Blast from the Past Vintage Stock Cars (NEETS and BLAST appearing in Sunday doubleheaders).
Visitors were able to pick up schedules, NASCAR license applications, season tickets, the newest Grandview Speedway t-shirts.
Thanks to Brad Missimer for the great looking 50th anniversary car and thanks to Tom Herbert for unveiling his good looking No. 18 Pink Panther 69 Camaro as part of the display. Special thanks to those who worked the display for us during the exciting show weekend.
Our thanks go out to Len Sammons and staff for voting the Grandview Speedway display as the Best of the Show Speedway Booth.
Topping the 50th anniversary season will be the BPG Racing Freedom 76 for Modifieds on September 15th (raindate is September 22nd) paying $50,000 to win and the Forrest Rogers Memorial presented by Pioneer Pole Buildings paying $20,000 to win to a regular Grandview modified racer and $10,000 to a visiting driver.
