BECHTELSVILLE, PA On Sunday, July 20th,
Grandview Speedway will be host to the second Open Wheel Spectacular of the
season as the Hilborn Tri-State Race Saver (TSRS) 305 Winged Sprint Cars join
forces with the wingless midgets of the American Racing Drivers Club
Open wheel fans are sure to enjoy the diverse
style of these two organizations. The
winged TSRS Sprint Cars provide close competition during their qualifying events
and twenty-five lap feature event. The
wingless ARDC midgets are known for their "three wide and side by side" style of
racing and there is sure to be plenty of that when the midgets take to the high
banks of the Grandview Speedway.
Fans did not go away disappointed
following the first Open Wheel Spectacular last month. Many longtime fans could
relate to successful Sunday night doubleheaders that featured Sprints and
Midgets at Grandview some years back.
Adam Carberry was the winner of
the June Spectacular and added his name to the list of TSRS feature winners this
season that includes two time champion, Mike Haggenbottom, Karl Freyer, Kyle
Reinhardt and Dave Brown. In only their
third Grandview appearance, there are plenty of TSRS competitors who would be
honored to take home a win from the Grandview Speedway, including Tim Tanner and
Tom Carberry Jr. who finished second and third in the June event.
Steve Buckwalter picked up his second ARDC win of the
season during the June event, taking the win over Alex Bright and Grandview
Modified regular, Tim Buckwalter. Bright
has since added another win to his May victory at Grandview and joins Buckwalter
and current ARDC point leader, Steven Drevicki who each have two wins so far
this season. PJ Gargiulo and Tim
Buckwalter each have one win in 2014. The ARDC midgets continue their
75th anniversary celebration of presenting exciting midget auto
admission for the Sunday, July 20th event is a low $15 while
youngsters 6 through 12 pay just $5. Kids under 6 are admitted free. And there
is always free parking on the speedway grounds.
Spectator gates open at 5:30 p.m.
with racing getting under way promptly at 7:30pm. Fans are invited to the pre-race Meet &
Greet, hosted by the internet radio hosts of the Low, Down & Dirty radio
