Two TP Trailers NASCAR Modified Features Part Of A.D.moyer Lumber Night at Grandview this Saturday, Sportsman and BRC Late Models Join the Action

BECHTELSVILLE, PA JULY 12, 2017 . . . After nine Saturday nights of T.P.Trailers NASCAR 358 Modified stock car racing at Grandview Speedway there have been no repeat winners. In fact two of the top three in the Modified point standings have yet to win a feature. Jeff Strunk, a ten time champion, goes into the Saturday racing program leading Craig VonDohren by just four points and VonDohren is without a feature win. Duane Howard is a close third in the points but also without a Saturday night feature win. Only Strunk has a win. To say competition has been tough for the Modified racers at Grandview would be putting it mildly.

Saturday night the A.D.Moyer Lumber sponsored night of racing will include two NASCAR 358 Modified feature races. The first feature having been left from a partially rained out show a few weeks back and then there will be the regular Saturday feature. Two great opportunities for new names to be added to the list of nine different winners or perhaps the opportunity for a repeat winner or two.

For those keeping tab of these figures, there have been nine Modified features run along with nine features for the Late Models and ten for the Sportsman.

Schutz Wins Firecracker 40 During Jam Packed Night of Racing at Grandview

Chuck Schutz Takes Home More Than $2000 as Winner of Firecracker 40 Late Model Race at Grandview, Whitmoyer Gets Second Win of the Season with NASCAR Sportsman, Mike Gular Gets First 2017 TP Trailers 358 Modified Win and Brad Grim Comes Home First in Second Sportsman Feature. Brett Peters Wins Vintage Feature

BECHTELSVILLE, PA. July 9, 2017, Fans that attended the racing action on Saturday night at Grandview Speedway certainly got their money’s worth. All feature events had side-by-side, three to four wide action throughout their respective shows that produced two repeat winners, two season first winners that included a first career win.

The highlight of the night was the Firecracker 40-lap BRC NASCAR Late Model feature that was won by defending point champion and current point leader Chuck Schutz for a payday worth in excess $2,000. Schutz, who last won the event in 2010, dedicated the win to long-time supporter Carl Knauer who passed away. It was a long race commented Schutz in victory lane and he’s glad he could conserve his tires and that they held up in the battles with runner-up Ron Kline, who last won the race in 2011.

The 30-lap T.P. Trailers 358 NASCAR Modified feature wasn’t decided until the drop of the checkered. Brett Kressley appeared to be on his way to another win, but coming in for the checkered he had to go high to get around lapped traffic. It was all Mike Gular, who has been knocking on the door of victory lane for several weeks, needed. Gular took advantage of the situation and dove underneath Kressley and it was a drag race to the finish line, but Gular parked the Rich Stankewicz-owned No. 2 in victory lane for the first time this year ending a six-year winless drought.

Bacon Brings the 63 Back to Eastern Storm Win Column in Opener at Grandview

Bechtelsville, PA………The sight of the black Dooling/Hayward Motorsports No. 63 winning an Eastern Storm feature has become oh, so familiar over the last couple of seasons.

Bryan Clauson raced to three wins in the five Pennsylvania starts with the car in 2016, including one at Grandview Speedway. When the calendar turned its page to 2017, there was no better tandem to build upon the groundwork that had been laid than the pairing of the defending Eastern Storm championship team and the reigning USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car driver titlist, Brady Bacon.

On Tuesday night, Bacon prevailed in a spirited late-race battle with C.J. Leary in which he took over the point in lapped traffic with three laps remaining to score his first USAC National Sprint Car victory in nearly a year and the first for the Dooling/Hayward team since Clauson’s 41st and final victory at Lawrenceburg (Ind.) Speedway last July.

“This one is really special,” Bacon said. “Bryan and I both liked to come out here. The fans were always great. He was really good out here. Hopefully, we’re making him proud that we’re out here and got it back in victory lane. I wish he was still here and maybe I wasn’t in this car, but that’s just the way it is.”

Grant Goes Wire-to-Wire in USAC Sprints’ Return to Knoxville

Knoxville, Iowa………In one of the most highly-anticipated events on the 2017 USAC calendar, Justin Grant made it a night to remember as he led wire-to-wire to win the AMSOIL National Sprint Cars’ return to the famed Knoxville Raceway Saturday night after a six-year hiatus.

Grant, of Ione, California, finished 25th in his lone Knoxville start back in 2011, but there’d be no parallels drawn from that result to his performance on the half-mile Saturday night as he was in a class of his own throughout the 30-lap main event.

However, early on in the night, Grant couldn’t have anticipated the end result would go as smoothly as it did following a rocky beginning. The team fine-tuned their way throughout the evening, swapping out parts and pieces on the Sam McGhee Motorsports/Mike McGhee & Associates – Brown & Miller Racing Solutions/Maxim/Foxco until they hit the sweet spot in time for the main event.
