CAMPERS, TENTS, RVs AND TRAILERS WELCOME AT GRANDVIEW?S BPG RACING FREEDOM 76 RACE ON SEPT. 13Grandview PR
BECHTELSVILLE, PA August 26, 2008 . . . ?Campers, tents, RVs, and trailers are welcome on the grounds of Grandview Speedway for the BPG Racing Freedom 76,? said promoter Bruce Rogers. ?However we will not be allowing the roping off or saving of areas in the parking lot.?
The 38th Annual BPG Racing Freedom 76 Modfied Classic, paying $20,000 to the winner, is the granddaddy of the big money Modified stock car racing events in the area. More than 70 entries are expected for the event and a huge turnout of fans is anticipated.
?In an effort to alleviate some of the parking problems of the past we are asking fans not to rope off areas in the parking lot,? continued Rogers. ?We are NOT restricting the areas where campers, RVs, trailers and people with tents can set up but we are asking that everyone use common sense and not rope off or save areas. That will allow all fans to have a better experience at the BPG Racing Freedom 76,?
Fans who place vehicles on the grounds and rope off areas during the days leading up to the race will have the ropes removed. The area will be policed on a daily basis.
Rogers and his staff plan to take a close look at the parking and camping situation this year and if needed will make changes for the 2009 race.
In addition fans are asked to refrain from having open fires on the speedway grounds. Those that have grills will be asked to keep a close eye on them because of the extreme dry conditions that currently exist in the area.
Fans are reminded that dogs, no matter how small, are not allowed in the grandstand areas.
Included in the BPG Racing Freedom 76 events will be a Beer City BPG Racing Freedom Fest offering fun for the entire family starting at 1 p.m. Full details will be announced shortly. Racing will get the green flag at 7 p.m.
A full series of qualifying heat races will be presented along with the Schaeffer Motorsports Minuteman 20 (last chance to make the main event), the Alpine Building and Pole Supply Cash Dash (paying $1000 to win) and it is all topped off by the BPG Racing Freedom 76 offering $20,000 to win, $10,000 for second, $4000 for third and on down to $300 for last.
