BECHTELSVILLE, PA March 6, 2015 . . . There seems to have been some confusion amongst racers planning to race at NASCAR sanctioned Grandview Speedway this season regarding the use of correct tires.
Effective immediately racers will be permitted to use BGP stamped American Racer tires that they have on hand. Once their supply of BGP stamped tires is exhausted racers will be required to use only American Racer tires that carry the “GVIEW” stamp.
Grandview management has told tire suppliers that effective immediately only “GVIEW” stamped American Racer tires should be sold to racers planning to use them in competition at Grandview.
“We apologize for the confusion regarding the proper tire to be used at Grandview,” said Tina Rogers, speaking for the Rogers family, operators of Grandview Speedway. “We felt that we had handled the tire situation by allowing racers to use the BGP stamped tires throughout the 2014 season. Unfortunately, we found some of our racers still have some of the tires that were purchased late in the year. In fairness to them we will permit them to be used until their supply is exhausted. We encourage all racers when purchasing tires to purchase “GVIEW” stamped tires. ”
The 2015 season, the 53rd consecutive season of stock car racing, gets the started on Saturday, March 28th at noon with the running of the annual free-to-the-public practice session.
