BECHTELSVILLE, PA  When Jeff Strunk won the 43rd Annual BPG Racing Freedom 76 Modified race at Grandview Speedway on Saturday, September 14th, taking home more than $27,000, he pretty much brought an end to the regular weekly racing season at the NASCAR sanctioned Bechtelsville racing facility. However there are still a few special events.

 That very same night Duane Howard, winner of nine NASCAR 358 Modified feature races at Grandview this season, was presented with a check in the amount of $10,000 for being the overall champion of the American Racer Cup Series. Howard also collected additional cash as the Grandview winner of the American Racer Cup.

 When the top performers are honored at the annual awards banquet set for November 16th champion Craig VonDohren will pick up well in excess of $10,000 for his championship efforts from both NASCAR and the track owners Bruce and Theresa Rogers. Just shows that racers competing at Grandview are competing for some serious cash. Those wishing to attend the banquet can get information from Vicki Gehris at 610.367.2776.

 TP Trailers in Limerick has added to the weekly cash offerings with bonuses for the winners in all three divisions provided they are carrying TP decals on both sides of the car. And VP Fuels continued to offer lucrative product certificates to the top finishers in each division that used the VP racing gasoline.

 Some special events still to go in the season includes the October 5th Outlaw Enduro which will feature 200-lap features for the big cars and the small cars plus racing for the Blast from the Past Vintage Cars which will allow racers from other clubs to participate.
