BECHTELSVILLE, PA March 20, 2014 . . . Fans turning out for the annual Free-to-the-Public practice session at Grandview Speedway on Saturday, March 29th will get to see quite a variety of race cars. The noon time test and tune session will allow racers to show off their new equipment and make sure everything is ready for the new season which could be one of the very best seen at the Berks County clay oval.
It is expected that there will be many different types of race cars taking part in the practice session including NASCAR 358 Modifieds, Late Models, Sportsman, Sprints, Midgets, Enduro cars, Vintage racers and many more. And there are some new drivers expected to be part of racing action at Grandview plus veteran drivers in new rides for the 2014 season.
No one will actually win practice but the sessions just may shine a light on racers to watch when the point battle gets underway.
The green flag will fall for the start of the NASCAR point battles on Saturday, April 5, 7 p.m. with the NASCAR 358 Modifieds, Late Models and Sportsman featured in a tripleheader card of action packed stock car racing. Seven time NASCAR Modified champion Craig VonDohren will be kicking off defense of his 2013 championship title.
Racers in all three divisions are reminded that tires with the BGP stamp on them will be allowed up to and including Memorial Day weekend, after that only tires with the GVIEW stamp will be allowed for use at Grandview Speedway.
Again in 2014 T.P. Trailers of Limerick is adding bonus bucks to the winner’s money in each division provided the winning cars are carrying clearly visible T.P. Trailers decals. The Modified winner will earn an extra $250 while $100 will go to the winners in the Late Model and Sportsman divisions.
Practice day will also offer fans a great opportunity to purchase their season pass, $350, which covers all the Saturday night racing events presented between April 5th and the end of September.
