LATE MODEL CHAMPIONSHIP IS UP FOR GRABS IN FINAL POINT EVENT AT GRANDVIEW . . . . . MODIFIEDS GETTING READY FOR THE $25,000 TO WIN BPG FREEDOM 76
Wednesday, September 04, 2013

The battles for the NASCAR Whelen All American Series championships at Grandview Speedway are over in two divisions but in the Late Models six time champion Chuck Schutz of Pottstown has just a seven point edge over Jason Miller of New Tripoli going into the final night of point racing tomorrow.

 Schutz, shooting for his seventh title, has had a difficult second half of the season but last Saturday night managed to earn a fourth place finish in the 25-lap main event for the Late Models while Jason Millerís best effort was a seventh. Both drivers will be at their best tomorrow night when racing action gets underway at 7:30 p.m

 The battle for the Late Model title actually includes five drivers who are all in action tomorrow night and have a chance at the title if Schutz and Miller make costly mistakes.

 Also included in the Green Lane Wm. Penn/Four Star Lettering Night action will be the NASCAR 358 Modifieds and Sportsman. Jared Umbenhauer has wrapped up the Sportsman title for the second year in a row having a more than 500 point edge over second place Kenny Gilmore.

 The NASCAR 358 Modified championship goes to Craig VonDohren for the seventh time in his outstanding career. Despite winning nine feature races defending champion Duane Howard had to settle for second in the battle for the very lucrative NASCAR and track championships.
