According to all reports Ma Nature is going to produce some good weather this weekend and racing action will return to Grandview Speedway for two nights of great entertainment on the one-third-mile, banked clay track. Tonight the competition should be intense for the NASCAR stock car racers. The racers are returning after three weeks of rainouts so all of them will be intent on getting back into action and making up for lost opportunities in the chase for the lucrative track and NASCAR titles. A great family outing as part of Memorial Day weekend.
Tonight will feature a tripleheader show of NASCAR stock car racing that includes the NASCAR T.P.Trailers 358 Modifieds, BRC Late Models and Sportsman stock cars. Racing will start at 7:30 p.m. with spectator gates opening at 5:30 p.m.
Duane Howard leads defending champion Craig VonDohren by just 17 points in the T.P.Trailers NASCAR 358 Modified point chase while Sean Merkel is on top in the BRC Late Models and Joe Funk tops the Sportsman division.
The popular racer meet and greet, presented by Low Down and Dirty radio, is set for 5 p.m. and will feature Modified ace Tim Buckwalter, Late Model standout Wayne Pfeil and veteran Sportsman talent Brad Brightbill along with their race cars.
Again this week Pocono Raceway and WNPV-1440AM Radio in Lansdale, the area NASCAR station, will attempt to make some fans happy as they give away $1,000 worth of tickets for the big NASCAR racing weekend at Pocono, June 4-5.
And the Memorial Day weekend will close with a Sunday night Pioneer Pole Buildings Thunder on the Hill three division show featuring Big Block/358 Modifieds, Sportsman and TSRS 305 Sprint cars in racing action starting at 7:30 p.m. Spectator gates open at 5 p.m. The Big Block/358 Modifieds will be racing for $5,000 to win and that will surely attract many top names in the sport. This will be an NASCAR point event for the 358 Modifieds that have an NASCAR license. Adult admission is $25 while young people 6-11 pay $10 and those under 6 will be admitted FREE. Pit admission is $35 with no special license required.
