The USAC East Coast Sprints will be making their only stop of the season at Grandview this Saturday night. In previous scheduled visits to the speedway, current NASCAR Modified driver Tim Buckwalter was a winner in 2019, the event was cancelled due to the COVID shut down in early 2020, and last season former NASCAR Modified driver now turned Sprint car driver Briggs Danner was in victory lane by the end of the evening.
The top two drivers in the current USAC East Coast series points have been the leading feature winners this season and last year as well. Defending Champion Alex Bright has been a two-time winner so far this season after scoring a club leading eleven wins last year. This year’s current point leader, Briggs Danner, has scored five wins already this young season after taking nine wins last year.
In T.P. Trailer NASCAR Modified action, Brett Kressley and Craig Von Dohren have been to the winner’s circle so far this season, with Kressley currently on top of the point chart.
In the T.P. Truck Equipment NASCAR Sportsman division, Jordan Henn, Brian Hirthler and Parker Guldin have all reached victory lane, with Hirthler currently sitting in the top spot in the point standings.
All race teams are being reminded by Speedway management that tire sales will resume this week at the racetrack ONLY. The tire truck will be at the track when the pit gate opens at 4 pm, and all teams will be allowed to purchase two tires. To be certain the tire sales are monitored fairly, we are requiring that all cars must be signed in first for the night’s event, before purchasing, and the driver of each car is required to make the tire purchase.
We appreciate your understanding and your support during the tire shortage issue.
Once again, as last season, there will not be a fuel truck at the track, so racers need to plan accordingly.

Saturday, May 21 will see a return to a two-division program with the T.P. Trailer Modifieds and T.P. Truck Equipment Sportsman both in action at 7:30 pm.
