Bechtelsville, Pa. ? The outcome of the 30-lap NASCAR Whelen All-American Racing Series modified feature on Saturday night at Grandview Speedway sponsored by the Mavericks Motorcycle Club was anyone?s guess after Brad Missimer and Kyle Follweiler shuffled race leader and current point leader Duane Howard back to third on the 25th lap restart. Follweiler emerged as the new leader on the 27th lap with Missimer and Howard in tow. Before Follweiler could take the one-lap-to-go signal, he hit the yuke tire in the fourth turn that was hit by another competitor earlier which put it closer to the track and Follweiler spun which in turn put Howard, who overtook second the previous lap, back in control. Howard later withstood a one-lap shoot-out and went on to put the Chad Sinon-owned/BPG Racing No. 4 in victory lane for the fourth time of the season.
Troy Wink was the early pacesetter trailed by Missimer, Jeremy Banos, Glenn Owens and Addison Meitzler.

It didn?t take Howard long to pull away from the pack leaving Missimer, Follweiler, Manmiller and Ryan Godown battling for the remaining positions. Addison Meitzler regrouped the pack when he spun in the third turn with 24 laps completed. On the restart the veteran Howard was shocked that the youngsters of Missimer and Follweiler got by him and he was now third while Missimer, behind the wheel of the A-Z Furniture No. 327, and Follweiler ran first and second.
The lead changed for the fifth time on the 27th lap when Follweiler put the B & F Machine No. 42 in the top spot after a brief battle with Missimer. Coming out of the fourth turn before he could take the white flag, Follweiler made contact with the yuke tire. It was a tough break for Follweiler as his hopes o
