RCN TO TELEVISE GRANDVIEW SPEEDWAY FOR THE 16TH STRAIGHT SEASON
GRANDVIEW SPEEDWAY’S SATURDAY NIGHT STOCK CAR RACING ACTION TO BE TELEVISED BY RCN/TV FOR THE 16TH STRAIGHT SEASON BECHTELSVILLE,
PA January 21, 2016 . . . For the 16th straight season Lehigh Valley,
PA’s RCN/TV will offer television coverage of six dates of NASCAR
sanctioned Saturday night stock car racing at Grandview Speedway.
The coverage, shown on a delayed basis, will be broken up into two
programs each week. Qualifying heat racing action will be included in
one show and the feature races for the T.P.Trailers NASCAR Whelen 358
Modifieds, Sportsman and BRC Late Models and special events will be
shown in a second show. Each show will offer approximately two hours of
coverage and will be shown on two separate nights during the week
following the actual live race event. And there will be a second showing
of the two night coverage on later dates.
Included in the schedule of events to have coverage are April 9, May
21, June 11, July 9, July 30 and the Forrest Rogers Memorial presented
by Pioneer Pole Buildings Modified Classic on August 13.
“The television coverage by RCN/TV is a great tool for our racers to
use in attracting sponsorship. We are told the programming from
Grandview gets very high viewer ratings,” said promoter Bruce Rogers.
“This also gives viewers that are not fans of the sport a chance to see
what dirt track stock car racing is all about and perhaps serve as an
incentive for them to come out and see the events live. It is pretty
much a win-win situation for all involved.”
A few of the televised events are still available to businesses looking
to benefit from sponsorship in motorsports at Grandview. Details can be
had by contacting Ernie Saxton at 215.752.7797 or on his cellphone at
267.934.7286. The shows
include Victory Lane interviews, current point standings, news from the
pit area, highlights video from ace lens man Gary Silverman, and instant
replay of key happenings.
Well respected Area Auto Racing News, Reading Eagle and Allentown Call
writer Randy Kane will once again team up with veteran broadcaster Mike
Feltenberger to provide expert commentary of the events.
Grandview Speedway will kick off their 54th consecutive season of stock
car racing on Saturday, March 26th, 12 noon, with a free-to-the-public
practice session featuring all types of competition.
The new season, the battle for the lucrative point funds, will
officially get underway with the first NASCAR point events of the season
for the T.P.Trailers 358 Modifieds, BRC Late Models and Sportsman
racers on Saturday, April 2nd, 7 p.m.
Grandview Speedway, a one-third-mile, banked clay racing facility, is
located on Passmore Road, just off Route 100, 10 miles above Pottstown,
PA. Information is available at www.grandviewspeedway.com or telephone
