BPG RACING IS NEW SPONSOR OF FREEDOM 76 CLASSIC, PRACTICE DAY SET FOR MARCH 29TH


BECHTELSVILLE, PA March 14, 2008 . . . The granddaddy of all area Modified racing classics, the Freedom 76, will have a new sponsor this season.
 BPG Racing, owned by successful Blue Bell, PA businessman Chad Sinon, has agreed to take on the sponsorship of the race which offers the largest purse for Modifieds in area racing with $20,000 going to the winner.
 The BPG Racing Freedom 76 is set for Saturday, September 13.
 Long time sponsor THP, a respected real estate developer, has relinquished their sponsorship of the race.
 ?We do want to thank THP for their support of the event for so many years. They were a great support of racing at Grandview,? said track promoter Bruce Rogers. ?Hopefully, when the sluggish economy is corrected, we will see THP back with us. We wish them the best.?
 BPG Racing has been fielding race cars at Grandview Speedway for several years in addition to having cars in competition at other area tracks.
 ?Grandview Speedway has been good to us. We have been able to win a lot of events there and earned some sizeable checks with the wins and the point fund payouts,? said Sinon. ?We just wanted to be able to give something back to a track that has given us so much. We are excited about being the sponsor of this event, a true classic in the sport.?
 Sinon has also announced that he will be sponsoring a URC and NASCAR Modified doubleheader during the season at Grandview and will also sponsor the popular Pick 3 Contest in the weekly track magazine, the Grandview Groove.
 Fans are invited to come out and see all the new race cars as they take part in the Free-to-the-Public practice session on Saturday, March 29th at noon.
 The season kicks off, officially, on Saturday, April 5th at 7 p.m. with a full series of qualifying events for the NASCAR Modifieds and Late Models topped by a 40-lapper for the Modifieds and a 20-lap feature for the Late Models.  Admission for the opening event of the 46th season of stock car racing at Grandview Speedway will be $15.00 for adults.
 All REGULAR events, including those that have the added attraction of Legends or 600 Modifieds along with the NASCAR Modifieds and Late Models, will have an adult ticket price of $13.00.
 Grandview Speedway, a one-third-mile, banked clay oval, is located on Passmore Road just off Route 100 in Bechtelsville, PA, 10 miles north of Pottstown. For race information check in at www.grandviewspeedway.com or telephone 610.754.7688.
