COLD, WIND, WET WEATHER MAKES GROUNDHOG WRONG ABOUT EARLY SPRING, GRANDVIEW FORCED TO POSTPONE $3500 TO WIN NASCAR 358 MODIFIED RACE UNTIL SATURDAY, APRIL 16TH
BECHTELSVILLE, PA April 8, 2016 . . . The groundhog seems to have been wrong. His prediction of spring weather did not hold true and Grandview Speedway management was forced to postpone their Saturday, April 9th NASCAR stock car racing events and reschedule them for Saturday, April 16th.
That means the Modified racers will have to wait a few more days to have their chance to race in the T.P.Trailers NASCAR 358 Modified 35-lapper that rewards the winner with $3500plus. All the same talents will be returning including opening night winner Craig VonDohren, Duane Howard, Jeff Strunk, Meme DeSantis, Doug Manmiller and a long list of others as they battle for top honors and the big bucks.
A full series of qualifying events will lead up to the 35-lap main event featuring 28 starters.
Also the BRC Late Models and Sportsman stock cars will run in qualifying events topped off by 25-lap features in each division.
Adult admission is $20 while youngsters 6 through 11 are admitted for $5. Kids under 6 get in for free. Military with proper ID are admitted free.
The 5 p.m. Low Down and Dirty Meet and Greet will feature the same drivers with their cars on display as were scheduled on April 9. Included are NASCAR 358 Modified driver Steve Swinehart, Late Model talent Eric Hoch and Sportsman veteran Dean Bachman.
Then on Sunday (April 17th) at 1 p.m. a full show of Outlaw Enduro and Blast From the Past Vintage Car racing will be presented.
