Event organizer Bruce Rogers has announced that there will be NO significant rule changes for the 2013 season. “We have cleaned out the rule book, eliminating rules that no longer made sense to have included.” said Rogers. “All racers planning to compete at Grandview Speedway should make sure they read the rule book so that there are no questions about rules enforcement.”
