SATURATED GROUNDS FORCE GRANDVIEW SPEEDWAY TO CANCEL SATURDAY NIGHT RACING; FREE POCONO NASCAR TICKETS TO BE GIVEN AWAY ON SATURDAY, MAY 14
BECHTELSVILLE, PA May 7, 2016 . . . All the rain may be great for the May flowers but it is not good for auto racing on the Grandview Speedway clay track. The tripleheader show of NASCAR stock car racing, featuring the T.P.Trailers NASCAR 358 Modifieds, BRC Late Models and Sportsman racers has been canceled for tonight (Saturday, May 7). The overly saturated grounds, a result of all the rain that has fallen in the area, have made it impossible to get the track into racing condition.
Racing will return on Saturday, May 14th when Whelen Engineering Night is presented featuring another tripleheader card of NASCAR racing that will again include the very popular T.P.Trailers 358 Modifieds, BRC Late Models and Sportsman stock cars. Racing will get the green flag at 7:30 p.m. with spectator gates opening at 5:30 p.m.
As usual the Low Down and Dirty Meet and Greet, featuring drivers and cars on display, will take place at the main gate area.
Adult admission is $15 while youngsters under the age of 12 are admitted free.
WNPV-1440AM Radio of Lansdale, the local NASCAR station, and Pocono Raceway will be making some fans happy on Saturday night as they give away more than $1,000 worth of tickets for the June 4-5 NASCAR race weekend at Pocono. Fans will have the opportunity to win tickets for the Saturday, June 4th NASCAR Xfinity race (a first time appearance for the Xfinity Series at Pocono) and the June 5th Axalta “We Paint Winners” 400 Sprint Cup race. All the tickets include extra perks for the fans that are fortunate enough to win them.
Then on Sunday, May 15th, 1 p.m. there will be Enduro and Vintage stock car racing. Included in the action will be a 125-lap Big Car Enduro along with a 125-lap Small Car Enduro and a Ladies Race. The Blast from the Past Vintage Cars will also be part of the show. Admission is just $10 for adults.
