BECHTELSVILLE, PA Racing on Saturday night at Grandview Speedway will continue where it left off when the rains came last Saturday with just one lap run in the NASCAR 358 Modified feature. Bill Gensler will be in front of the field when the green flag falls at 7:30 p.m.
Once the 29-laps of the first feature are complete a full show of 358 Modifeds and Late Models will be run including qualifying events for each division. A 30-lap feature for the Modifieds will see at least 28 cars starting while the 20-lap feature for the Late Models will have 24-cars taking the green.
The night of racing is named in honor of Robert Guinther, a long time fan of stock car racing at Grandview, who won the honors in a contest that had fans writing essays stating why they felt the night should carry their name. The contest was sponsored by BPG Racing . Guinther and his guests will enjoy the racing from the air conditioned sponsor booth. He will be the honorary starter for the Modified feature plus his group will have their pictures taken in victory lane after the two regular features.
Admission for adults is $13. Children 6-11 pay just $5 and under 6 are admitted FREE.
