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