BECHTELSVILLE, PA June 8, 2016 . . . The battle for the lucrative NASCAR and track point titles continues at Grandview Speedway this Saturday with T.P.Trailers Night offering an exciting four division show of auto racing action. Judging from early racing action the season seems headed to becoming one of the most competitive seen at the 54-year-old racing facility in quite sometime.
With six weeks of racing completed ( four events have been rained out) Craig VonDohren is leading in the T.P.Trailers NASCAR 358 Modifieds with 1714 points and two wins to his credit. VonDohren is an eight time and defending champion. Veteran Mike Gular has put together a series of strong finishes to hold second in the chase for the NASCAR and track Modified titles. Gular is just 150 points behind and 10-time champion Jeff Strunk is coming off a strong second place finish last Saturday and is closing in on the top spot.
Dave Ogin, without benefit of a feature win, leads the BRC Late Model standings and Jordan Henn leads the Sportsman with 1237 counters and one win. Only 19 points separate Henn from challenger Craig Whitmoyer.
There have been 13 different feature winners in the three divisions of stock car racing making up the regular Saturday night attractions. The Sportsman division has had 6 different winners in as many races.
