BECHTELSVILLE, PA BPG Racing, owned by successful Blue Bell, PA businessman Chad Sinon, will be making an all out assault on the BPG Racing Freedom 76 Modified stock car racing classic at Grandview Speedway on Saturday, September 12, 7 p.m.
The 76-lap dirt track racing event, offering $20,000 plus to the winner, is expected to attract a stellar field of top talents. A win in this prestigious event can be the highlight of a racer’s career.

“We are adding Shawn Reimert to our team for this event because he has been a strong, consistent performer at Grandview,” said Sinon. “We think he has what it takes to be a winner of a major event like the Freedom 76 and we feel that he is due to be a winner.”
Howard, VonDohren and Reimert will be a formidable team as they all members of the team will be looking to be first across the finish line picking up the $20,000 first prize money. Second place isn’t too bad either with $10,000 waiting for the runner-up.
