STEVE BUCKWALTER AND JEFF GEIGES WIN OPEN WHEEL SPECTACULAR FEATURES AT GRANDVIEW SPEEDWAY ON SUNDAY NIGHT

BECHTELSVILLE, PA?~ The results of the second Open
Wheel Spectacular at Grandview Speedway have been written in the record
books. While that chapter may be closed,
it is not likely that the talk about this racing event will end any time
soon. 

 

Race fans saw Steve Buckwalter set a blistering pace
on his way to his second consecutive win in American Racing Drivers Club (ARDC)
action on the high banks of the Grandview Speedway Sunday night. The Tri-State Race Savers (TSRS) Sprint Car
feature saw three different leaders during the final six laps with multiple lead
changes on several laps before Jeff Geiges took command and the win. 

 

   Current ARDC point leader, Steven Drevicki and
Alex Bright led the field of wingless midgets to the green flag with Bright
using the outside line to take the lead on lap one. Bright ran and hid from the field as he
extended his lead lap after lap. Bright
was already reeling in the back of the field by lap eight as Drevicki, Brenden
Bright, Tim Buckwalter and Ryan Watt raced in the top five. 

 

  But disaster would strike for the
young Collegeville, PA driver on lap eleven. Bright was preparing to negotiate his way through lapped traffic when
contact was made between the Lightcap Electric #77 and the car driven by Eric
Heydenreich. Bright took a wild ride in
turn two before coming to rest on the inside of the track. Bright exited the car uninjured but his bid
for his third ARDC win of the season ended before the half way
mark.

 

  Drevicki took the lead on the
restart as Brenden Bright and Tim Buckwalter battled for second in front of
Watt. Tim Buckwalter took over second
when the pair raced through turn three. Steve Buckwalter slid into third before the half way mark. After a two lap battle with Tim Buckwalter,
Steve Buckwalter moved up to second. The
caution waved for Tyler Brehm who sat on the infield just off of turn
four.
