BECHTELSVILLE, PA One of the most popular events of the
season takes place at Grandview Speedway on Saturday, June 15th, when the URC
sprint cars join with the NASCAR 358 Modifieds and the Blast from the Past
Vintage Cars to produce a great tripleheader action card of racing.
Stillwagon and a host of other top URC sprint racers will be seen in action on
the one-third-mile, banked clay oval and the sprint cars always produce some
excitement at Grandview.
A very special part of the night will be when fans
and racers get to remember the late Midge Miller. He passed away recently after
spending many years as a racer and a URC official. He will be inducted into the
URC Hall of Fame during the evening’s events.
Duane Howard will see if he
can continue his domination of the NASCAR 358 Modified action as he tries for
his sixth win in a row. The NASCAR point leader has been able to edge out six
time track champion Craig VonDohren the last couple of Saturdays but things
could change as VonDohren has been running very strong this season. There are a
number of top talents that could be showing up in victory lane rather than
Howard on Saturday night. Just added to the field of talents trying to beat
Howard on Saturday is Ryan Godown. The New Egypt Speedway ace, a winner just
about everywhere, has the night off at the Central Jersey racing facility and
figures he will challenge the Grandview racers where he has been a big winner in
Added to the special night of racing is the Blast from the Past
Vintage cars that will give fans a chance to see the cars of the past in action
for the first time as a part of the Saturday night show.
