Each regular Saturday night show of stock car racing will consist of a full series of qualifying events in each division leading up to a 30 lap feature for the Modifieds and a 20 lap main event for the Late Models.
The 2006 season gets the green flag on Saturday, March 25th, 12 noon with the annual free-to-the-public practice session that affords everyone the opportunity to come out and see the new cars as the racers get them ?tuned up? for the official season opener. The practice is open to all types of race cars.
Then on Saturday, April 1, 7 p.m. the chase for the lucrative championships gets started. The NASCAR Modifieds will top their program with a 40-lap feature that gives the winner $3,000 and the Late Model racers showcase their talents in a 20-lap main event.
Racers at Grandview Speedway have the opportunity to earn point fund money, based on their end of the season point standings, from Grandview Speedway and NASCAR (two separate point funds).
