BECHTELSVILLE, PA?~ Multi-time NASCAR 358 Modified champion Duane Howard has a comfortable edge in the chase for the lucrative track championship as the season winds down at Grandview Speedway. However a couple bad nights for Howard could mean someone else could take the title.
With just four point races left in the 2012 season Doug Manmiller finds himself in second spot in the championship chase for the NASCAR 358 title.
In the Late Models it is Chuck Schutz looking for his sixth track title while Jared Umbenhauer is in front in the new NASCAR Sportsman division.
This Saturday, August 18th, Hatfield Quality Meats will sponsor a four feature show of stock car racing with the NASCAR 358 Modifieds and Sportsman each racing in a feature while the Late Models will be seen in two 20-lap main events. The extra 20-lap feature for Late Models comes as a result of their feature being rained out last Saturday night.
