BECHTELSVILLE, PA July 26,2012 . . . Duane Howard did not win the NASCAR 358 Modified feature race at Grandview Speedway this past Saturday night. That has not happened often this season. And fans can be assured that Howard and his Blue Bell Air sponsored No. 4 will be back better and stronger seeking that elusive ninth win as he continues his quest for the 2012 NASCAR Whelen All American Series 358 Modified championship.
Don Norris, Jr. was the big winner last Saturday in the Modifieds and he will have the Limerick Diner sponsored racer ready for a try at a second straight victory on Saturday night. Norris became the sixth different winner in Modified competition this season.
One driver that has not been to victory lane but has been running strong this season is Chris Esposito. The Perkasie, PA racer, considered an under funded racer has been a consistent top five competitor. A victory just might be in the books for Esposito this Saturday night at the one-third-mile, banked clay oval.
The NASCAR 358 Modifieds will join with the Late Models and Sportsman in a tripleheader card of NASCAR stock car racing presented on Saturday, July 28th and sponsored by Hatfield Quality Meats. Spectator gates open at 5:30 p.m. and racing gets the green flag at 7:30 p.m.
Hatfield mascot Smylie will shoot hot dogs and tshirts into the crowd and have samples of their product available free. Hatfield Meats Night is a very popular annual event at Grandview Speedway.
As part of the night two lucky fans will go home with a pair of tickets to the Pennsylvania 500 NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Pocono on August 5th.
