BECHTELSVILLE, PA March 26, 2014 . . . As long as the weather person cooperates dozens of race cars, all types, are expected to take to the track at Grandview Speedway on Saturday, March 29th at noon. The free-to-the-public practice session will offer racers from a variety of different divisions of competition the opportunity to test and tune their new equipment for the 2014 season and fans will have the opportunity to see what their favorites have to offer.
Speedway management has also announced a change in their tire situation for the 2014 season. It had been said that tires stamped with BGP would not be allowed in competition after Memorial Day weekend. Track owner Bruce Rogers and Lias Tire (manufacturer of American Racer tires) have decided to allow the use of BGP stamped tires for the entire 2014 season but suggest that teams go to the new GVIEW stamped tire as soon as possible.
“We want to allow the racers a fair amount of tire to use the older BGP tires and did not want to have racers face a financial hardship by forcing them to go to the newer GVIEW tire early in the season,” said track owner Bruce Rogers. “We feel this is a fair way to handle the tire situation.”
The free-to-the-public practice session allows fans to enjoy the action from the grandstands free of charge.
Everyone entering the pit area will be charged $30 but NO NASCAR license will be required.
The chase for the lucrative point championships will get the green flag at 7 p.m. Saturday, April 5th with a tripleheader show featuring the NASCAR 358 Modifieds, Late Models and Sportsman stock cars. Gates open at 5 p.m. Adult admission will be $15 while youngsters 12 and under will be admitted FREE.
Season tickets, priced at $350, will be available. The season ticket includes a reserved seat for all the Saturday night events run between April 5 and the end of September.
NASCAR pit licenses for the drivers and owners in the 358 Modified division will be $200 for the season while owners and drivers in the Late Model and Sportsman divisions will pay $100.
Pit admission for the regular Saturday night NASCAR events will run $30.
