BECHTELSVILLE, PA As part of the continuing 50th season anniversary celebration 358 Modified racers that make Grandview Speedway their home during the 2012 season will be racing for some serious cash, some added perks and both NASCAR and track point funds.
During one six week period, August 11th through September 15th, it is possible; a racer on a hot streak could walk off with at least $80,000.
How does that happen? The Forrest Rogers Memorial presented by Pioneer Pole Buildings, a 50-lap race for Modifieds that remembers the man who built the track, is set for Saturday, August 11th and pays $20,000 to win for a Grandview Speedway regular. Non-regulars will race for $10,000 to win.
The following four Saturdays the NASCAR 358 Modifieds will be racing for $2,500 to win their 30-lap features and who knows there just may be some extra perks included.
Come Saturday, September 15th, the event that has so many fans and racers talking, the BPG Racing Freedom 76 will close out the 50th anniversary season for the 358 Modifieds with the 76-lap feature race paying an astounding $50,000 to win.
So add it all up and you have at least $80,000 available to the 358 Modified feature winners during that six week period time.
