BECHTELSVILLE, PA March 9, 2018 . . . The First annual VP Racing Fuels Bruce Rogers Memorial Money Maker set for Saturday, April 7th at Grandview Speedway will reward the winner with at least $7,500. However the honor of winning the 50-lap Small Block/Big Block Modified race could very well mean more to the winner than the big bucks.

                Rogers, the man who built the one-third-mile, banked clay track along with his father, was one of the most respected auto racing promoters in the business. And he was very well respected by the competitors. During his 55 years of running the popular auto racing facility he was able to bring it to national notoriety. It is one of the most successful short track racing operations in nation and has continued under the operation of members of the Rogers family since he passed away in March of last year.

                Many well-known racing talents have expressed interest in being a part of this event which will kick off the 56th consecutive season of stock car racing at the Bechtelsville oval.

                In addition to the $7,500 for the winner each driver taking the green in the first time event will earn at least $1,000.

                A full series of qualifying events will lead up to the 50-lap main event. Sportsman stock cars will be featured as the second part of the show. Rules can be found at www.grandviewspeedway.com.

                Racers planning to participate are requested to pre-enter (no entry fee) by telephoning or texting 484-256-4375. There is no license required and it is a non-point event. Please provide driver’s name, contact information and phone number to assist in the promotion of the event.

                Rain date for the Bruce Rogers Memorial Money Maker will be Saturday, April 14.

                Ticket prices for the April 7th special event are $28 for adults, $5 for youngsters 6 thru 11 and those under 6 will be admitted FREE.

                There has been some confusion regarding RCN-TV coverage during the 2018 season. The TV schedule will kick off with the Bruce Rogers Memorial set for Saturday, April 7th. This will be the 18th consecutive season of RCN-TV coverage of Grandview events.

                The coverage, shown on a delayed basis, is broken up into two programs each week. Qualifying heat racing action will be included in one show and the feature races along with any 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 Saturday race events. And there will be a second showing of the two night coverage on a later date.

                Other dates on the RCN schedule include May 12June 9July 7July 21 and the Forrest Rogers Memorial on August 11th sponsored by Pioneer Pole Buildings.

                Grandview Speedway will kick off their 55th consecutive season of stock car racing on Saturday, March 31st, 12 noon, with a free-to-the-public practice session featuring all types of competition.

Bechtelsville, PA December 15, 2017. . . With the 56th season of stock car racing scheduled to get underway at Grandview Speedway on March 31st interest is already growing in the NASCAR sanctioned Saturday night racing action which will once again feature the T.P.Trailers 358 Modifieds, Late Models and Sportsman stock cars.

                The annual free-to-the-public practice session will kick things off on Saturday, March 31st at noon. And Saturday, April 7th, will feature the Bruce Rogers Memorial, a 75-lapper, for big and small block racers paying $7500 to win. This event will not carry a NASCAR sanction.

Again this year racers that use VP racing gasoline will be able to earn some great benefits based on a program announced by track operators, the Rogers family, and VP Racing Fuels.

                As in previous seasons the top finishing racer in each of the three NASCAR divisions racing at Grandview each Saturday night will be eligible for product awards. For the T.P.Trailers 358 Modifieds there is a $150 product award for the top finishing racer that can show he has used VP racing gasoline, had VP decals clearly visible on each side of the race car and has a VP patch on his or her uniform. In the Late Model division there will be a $100 product award and the Sportsman racers will earn a $75 product award provided they meet the requirements set for the awards.

                In addition VP Racing Fuels is posting a $100 VP product award for the overall Hard Charger out of the three divisions each Saturday night.

                VP will also be a banner advertiser on the Grandview website.

                VP Racing Fuels Regional Manager Tim Hogue said, “We appreciate the support given our product by the racers and we want to show the racers support for their racing efforts.”

                Fans are also reminded that season passes ARE available that cover a reserved seat for all Saturday night events, April through September. The price is still $350. Send a check covering the passes being ordered along with a self-addressed stamped envelope (to speed delivery) to Grandview Speedway, 87 Wilt Road, Bechtelsville, PA 19505.

                For information telephone 610.754.7688 or check in at www.grandviewspeedway.com, Facebook or Twitter.

                Those having interest in enjoying the benefits of marketing through auto racing can obtain information on program book advertising, event sponsorship and billboard advertising by contacting Ernie Saxton at 215.752.7797 or email Esaxton144@aol.com. A color brochure is available.
