RYAN GRIM EARNS FIRST CAREER NASCAR 358 MODIFIED VICTORY, SCHUTZ AND KRESSLEY ARE REPEAT WINNERS ON INGERSOLL RAND NIGHT AT GRANDVIEW SPEEDWAY

BECHTELSVILLE, PA.?~ One week after almost winning
the 30-lap NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Modified Feature at Grandview, Ryan
Grim came back Saturday night with a determined vengeance. The Laury?s
Station-based driver went from second to first on the initial start of the
Ingersoll-Rand Night sponsored event and at the wave of the checkered Grim
chalked up a well-deserved first career victory over runner-up veteran Ray
Swinehart, who posted his season best finish. Grim became the fourth different
Modified feature winner of the season.

In the
25-lap NASCAR BRC Late Model feature Chuck Schutz, the only driver running VP
Fuels gas in the class, overtook Joe ?Geezer? Fanelli on the 15th lap and went
on to be the first repeat winner in the
division.

Brett
Kressley started deep, 18th, in the pack of the 25-lap NASCAR
Sportsman feature but that didn?t deter him from passing leader Kenny Gilmore
with one lap to go and score back-to-back victories in the
feature.

 

All three
winning drivers received an Ingersoll-Rand Tool Pack worth $600 along with
monetary prizes from T.P. Trailers and VP Fuels product prizes if they were
eligible.

In the
Modified feature action Grim wasted no time grabbing the early lead at the
onset.

The only
caution of the race was brought out on the second lap when Kevin Hirthler, while
running third, stopped along the backstretch out of contention. When action
resumed Grim kept the Hoffman Speed Supplies/Willow St. Pub No. 17 in front
outdistancing himself from Brian Houseknecht, Swinehart, Jarrad Miller and Don
Norris Jr.
