PERKS ARE INCREASING FOR BPG RACING FREEDOM 76 WITH VP FUELS; ENTRY FORMS ARE AVAILABLE ON TRACK WEBSITE, ADVANCE TICKETS ON SALE RACE NIGHTS.....AREA FANS CAN WIN FREE TICKETS AND CHANCE TO BE HONORARY STARTER
Thursday, August 22, 2013

BECHTELSVILLE, PA VP Racing Fuels has posted product awards valued at $500, $300 and $150 for the top three finishers using their fuel in the rich BPG Racing Freedom 76 Classic for Modifieds set for Grandview Speedway on Saturday, September 14th. The race is the richest modified stock car racing event in the tri-state area with the winner taking home at least $25,000.

 The VP awards will come in the form of 54 gallons of VP racing gas to the highest finishing racer on VP gas, 30 gallons to the second highest finisher and the third best finisher on VP gas will receive 15 gallons of the popular product.

 Each product winner will be required to have raced with VP decals on the race car, VP patch on the racing uniform, no other fuel decals being displayed and will be subject to pre and post-race fuel tech inspection.

 “It’s been really great to see Grandview racers realize the value of running VP race gas over methanol. Our Freddie Turza has put in a lot of hours with a lot of racers proving to them the advantages of running our gas,” said Jim Kelly, VP Regional Manager for Eastern North America & Europe. “Craig VonDohren, Doug Manmiller, Duane Howard and others have made the switch and these awards, along with the weekly awards that we pay out, are a way of acknowledging the move to VP race gas and showing our appreciation. We want to thank Bruce, Theresa, Kenny, Tina Rogers and the entire Grandview staff for allowing this to happen.”

 Fans should be checking for ads in editions of the Norristown Times Herald, Lansdale Reporter, Pottstown Mercury and Berks Mont Newspapers that will give them a chance to win the opportunity to be an honorary starter for a BPG Racing Freedom 76 event, have their photo taken in victory lane and two tickets for the big race. Four other winners will receive two tickets for the race. The ads will be running possibly starting as early as Friday, August 23.

 Entry forms for the 43rd annual BPG Racing Freedom 76 are presently available at www.grandviewspeedway.com or at the pit office on race nights. Entering prior to race day will cost $90 while the price goes up to $115 on race day. No NASCAR or track license is required.  Each entry fee includes a pit pass for the event. All racers planning to take part in the race are asked to submit their entry as early as possible so their name can be used in promotional efforts leading up to the event.

 In addition to the $25,000 first place money for the winner lap sponsorship money is growing quickly and is expected to reach more than $2,000. Lap sponsorships are available for just $20 and can be purchased at the speedway office or contact Ernie Saxton at 215.752.7797. A special deal remains in place that offers a race ticket and lap sponsorship, a $50 value, for just $40. Just 22 of the ticket and lap sponsorships packages remain. All money goes to the racers.
