Four Divisions of Racing at Grandview Saturday

Point Battle is Close As NASCAR Racing Moves into Third Week

BECHTELSVILLE, PA April 18, 2017 . . . With NASCAR stock car racing action at Grandview Speedway moving into its third Saturday the same drivers that won the championships in 2016 are leading the current point standings.

Multi-time TP Trailers NASCAR 358 Modified champion Craig VonDohren sits on top of the standings holding a slim lead over 10-time champion Jeff Strunk and past champion Duane Howard. VonDohren has 577 counters while Strunk has 568 and Howard sits with 563. Interesting to note that none of the top three have visited victory lane so far.

In the BRC Late Model division Chuck Schutz, another multi-time and defending champion, is in front of the stadnings with 468 points while second place Wayne Pfeil has 457. Third place is held by Bryan Sipe with 447 points. Again none of the top three in points have cracked victory lane.

Jordan Henn, last year’s Sportsman titleholder, sits on top of the standings with 463 tallies. Craig Whitmoyer is second with 458 and Brian Hirthler, a feature winner already this season, is third with 410 points.

The battle for the NASCAR and Grandview track titles will continue this Saturday, April 22nd, when a four division card of racing will be presented starting at 7 p.m. Included will be the TP Trailers NASCAR 358 Modifieds, BRC Late Models and Sportsman along with the Blast from the Past Vintage racers making their first appearance of the new season.

Spectator gates open at 5 p.m. and that will be the same time that the weekly Low Down and Dirty Meet & Greet is happening at the main entrance area. This Saturday fans will get to meet Modified racer Kyle Borror, last week’s Late Model feature winner Brian Shuey and Sportsman driver Jack Butler.

At least 12 events of racing will make up the night of NASCAR stock car racing action.
