RAIN MOVES POINTS FINAL TO SEPTEMBER 16TH, T.H.PROPERTIES FREEDOM 76 MODIFIED CLASSIC OFFERS $20,000 TO WIN ON SEPTEMBER 9TH AT GRANDVIEW SPEEDWAYGrandview PR
BECHTELSVILLE, PA September 2nd, 2006 . . . Rain, the kind that makes people start planning to build an ark, forced postponement of the scheduled final point races for NASCAR Modified and Late Model stock car racers on Saturday night at Grandview Speedway. The BPG Racing/Chad Sinon Motorsports sponsored night of racing has been rescheduled for Saturday, September 16th.
?We just don?t think it is fair to have the point battle finish with two rainouts,? said track owner Bruce Rogers. ?It is such a close battle in both divisions that we just think the best way to handle it is to try to get one final point race completed.?
All attention is now turned to the grand-daddy of the big money 358 Modified events with $20,000 waiting for the winner of the T.H. Properties Freedom 76 Modified Classic on Saturday, September 9th.
Chad Brachman is the latest ?outsider? to let Grandview Speedway officials know he will be trying to qualify for the $20,000 to win T.H.Properties Freedom 76 Modified Classic. Brachman is a top performer at Ransomville, NY Speedway where he has a feature win and six top five finishes.
Brachman joins a long list of top dirt track modified stock car racing talents including six time Freedom 76 winner Billy Pauch, Kenny Brightbill, Meme DeSantis, Craig VonDohren, Jeff Strunk, 2005 Freedom 76 winner Ray Swinehart, current track Modified point leader Doug Manmiller and a host of others that will be trying to make the 40-car starting field and have a chance at the $20,000 first place money.
?We have had phone calls from a number of racers that normally do not race at Grandview,? said track public relations director Ernie Saxton. ?There have been a lot of requests for information and that just may make for some interesting visitors for the Freedom 76.?
At 3 p.m. race cars will be on display, fans will have chances to collect autographs, take photographs and enjoy some great music. Lew Boyd of Coastal Publishing will also be on hand with a large selection of their outstanding auto racing books including their newest release titled ?Paved Track Dirt Track? which traces the history of the old Nazareth Speedway and Old Bridge, NJ Stadium. Warmups will start at about 6:15 p.m. with qualifying events getting the green at 7 p.m.
Adult tickets are priced at $25, children?s tickets (6 thru 11) are $7 and under 6 are admitted free with a paying adult. Gates for advance ticket holders open at 1:30 p.m. while ticket windows open at 2 P.M. Pit gates open at 10 a.m. There is free parking on the speedway grounds. There is no NASCAR license required to enter the pit area for the Freedom 76.
Advance tickets will be on sale at the speedway on Friday, September 8th at 6 p.m. in the first turn area.
Should rain force postponement of the T.H. Properties Freedom 76 the race would be run on Saturday, September 16th following the same schedule and the final point races (BPG Racing/Chad Sinon Motorsports Night) would be moved to Saturday, September 23rd at 7 p.m.
