CHANGES ANNOUNCED FOR GRANDVIEW SPEEDWAY SATURDAY NIGHT RACING IN 2019

SATURDAY NIGHT RACING AT GRANDVIEW SPEEDWAY WILL HAVE A DIFFERENT LOOK IN 2019

                RULE CHANGES ANNOUNCED AS SEASON IS SET TO START ON MARCH 30

                ADDED ATTRACTIONS TO BE PART OF SOME SATURDAY NIGHTS

BECHTELSVILLE, PA December 10, 2018 . . . Changes have been made for the 2019 season at Grandview Speedway and Saturday night racing action will have a new look.

                “The lack of participants, car counts have been declining in recent years, and the lack of fan support has forced us to remove the Late Models from the Saturday night racing action,” said track spokesperson Tina Rogers. “Over the recent years we have held meetings with the owners and drivers and listened to their ideas on how to save the division. However the car count could not support it any longer. With many teams selling out and others planning to travel the car count would be event less for 2019.

It is so sad that we have been forced to take this step as Late Models have been a big part of racing at Grandview for many years. Certainly our thanks go out to those who supported the division. It is the end of an era.”

A 10:1 compression rule replaces the old 9:1 engine rule. This change will allow Late Model owners wishing to do so to use their motors in the Modified division of competition. The maximum on a Whistler will be 10:4.

                Saturday night racing will now feature the T.P.Trailers NASCAR Modifieds and Sportsman stock cars. The Sportsman division can look forward to more info on their new season as plans are being finalized. With the elimination of the Late Models track management will now be looking to add special attractions on Saturday nights and first to be signed is the URC Sprints on July 20 along with the East Coast USAC Sprints set for May 18th. As the schedule is filled in there will be a number of other special attractions.

                Another change announced after a meeting of track officials and management has all Modifieds and Sportsman being allowed to use single or double conventional rub rails on the left side of their car only.

                The Crate 604 Sportsman and Crate 602 Sportsman engines may now run a 750CFM Holley carburetor on gas. The carb rules can be found in the Modified section of the rule book at www.grandviewspeedway.com.

                And another rule being implemented is that all Sportsman sail panels must be of equal height.

                Ed Scott is available at 610.298.2408 and Cliff Quinn at 484.357.2587 should there be questions.

                The 2019 season, the 57th straight season of stock car racing, is set to start with the annual free-to-the-public practice session on Saturday, March 30th at noon.

                The VP Racing Fuels Bruce Rogers Memorial, featuring Modifieds, will be the first official night of racing action and is set for Saturday, April 6th. That race will pay $7,500 to win and $1,000 to start the race.  The race remembers the man who, with his father Forrest, developed the track into one of the most successful weekly dirt short track operations in the nation. The family continues the operation of the popular facility.

                Opportunities to benefit from marketing through NASCAR stock car racing at Grandview Speedway are currently available for the 2019 season.
