DESPITE RUMORS GRANDVIEW SPEEDWAY WILL BE OPEN FOR BUSINESS IN 2008

 

BECHTELSVILLE, PA October 26, 2007 . . . ?It seems to be an annual ritual,? said Grandview Speedway owner Bruce Rogers. ?Each year the rumors circulate that the track has been sold, a developer is going to build houses, and each year we have to put out a news release saying it is not so.?
 The one-third-mile, banked clay oval will again be presenting Saturday night stock car racing, featuring Modifieds and Late Models, sanctioned by the National Association of Stock Car Auto Racing (NASCAR) in 2008 and for years to come.
 In addition, as in the past, there will be a variety of added attractions on Saturday nights plus a series of Thunder on the Hill special promotions co-promoted by Bob Miller and Bruce Rogers.
 ?Rumors about the track closing create problems for everyone involved with the speedway,? said track public relations director Ernie Saxton. ?The racers and the track run into problems attracting sponsors when these rumors are circulating. The Rogers family will be the first to tell everyone if and when there are any plans to close the track.
 ?We are already scheduling events for 2008 and have sponsors in place for more than half of our Saturday night events. This year showed an increase in fan support and we anticipate that 2008 will be even a better season. Rumors of the track closing do no good for anyone involved with racing at Grandview Speedway.?
 Coming up on Saturday, November 10th is the annual track awards banquet being staged at the Kutztown, PA Fire Hall. Jeff Strunk will be honored for winning his sixth NASCAR Modified title while Brian Shuey will celebrate his first NASCAR Late Model title.
