THE FOUNDER, FORREST ROGERS, IS REMEMBERED TONIGHT WITH RICH FORREST ROGERS MEMORIAL CLASSIC PRESENTED BY PIONEER POLE BUILDINGS
Saturday, August 09, 2014

Forrest Rogers, the founder of the speedway which is now in its 52nd season of operation, will be remembered tonight when one of the classic events of the season will take place at Grandview Speedway with the running of the Forrest Rogers Memorial presented by Pioneer Pole Buildings. The 50-lap race, paying at least $10,000 to win, will feature the NASCAR 358 Modifieds and with that amount of money being offered it is quite possible that there will be some visitors, outside competition, coming to try for the pot of gold that also includes $250 from TP Trailers of Limerick and $150 in product from VP Racing Fuels provided that the winner has the proper decals on the winning car and is using VP racing gasoline. Of course there are always rumors of outsiders that will be showing up.

 Also included as part of the night of stock car racing action will be the exciting BRC Late Models and Sportsman stock cars.

  At least a dozen events are on the schedule for the night’s activities. Just five more Saturday night NASCAR point events remain as drivers battle to win titles and improve their positions in the point standings.

 Gates will open at 5:30 p.m. for spectators and that will also be when the weekly Low Down and Dirty Meet & Greet takes place featuring Pioneer sponsored racers Craig VonDohren, Kevin Hirthler, Brian Hirthler and Chuck Schutz.

 Adult admission for the Classic will be $25 while youngsters 6 through 12 pay just $5 and kids under 6 are admitted free.

 The Forrest Rogers Memorial does have a rain date of Saturday, August 16th. If the rain date is not needed then a regular three division show of NASCAR 358 Modifieds, Late Models and Sportsman stock cars will be presented.

 On Sunday, August 10th, another in the year-long series on Outlaw Enduro events will be presented with a 1 p.m. starting time. Included in the show will be the Blast from the Past Vintage Racers.

 Check in at 610.754.7688 or www.grandviewspeedway.com for race information.
