Bechtelsville, PA  Open wheel racing fans will be in their glory this weekend at Grandview Speedway with two big nights of racing that will include URC winged sprint cars and NASCAR 358 Modifieds on Saturday (June 21) and the first Open Wheel Spectacular of the season featuring the TSRS winged sprints and ARDC wingless midgets which is set for Sunday (June 22nd).

 Grandview Speedway management has also announced as a service to fans and racers they have connected to to have them provide information regarding rainouts via text and email.

 Jeff Strunk, a nine time track champion, will head up the NASCAR 358 Modifieds in the Saturday night doubleheader as he and Duane Howard continue their close battle for the NASCAR Whelen All American 358 Modified championship. More than 30 outstanding modified talents will be seen in action as part of a doubleheader show that also features the Rislone United Racing Company winged sprint cars.

 Brian Carber of Pipersville, PA currently leads the Rislone URC Sprint Series point chase heading to the Grandview Speedway. 

  Carber, a feature winner earlier this year at the Delaware International Speedway would like nothing more then to pull off a win at Grandview. Kevin Darling of Wyoming, DE is hot off a URC win Saturday night at the Winchester Speedway, where he led wire-to-wire to score his first win of the season. Grandview is considered by many to be one of the most challenging tracks on the URC circuit.
