HIGHLY ANTICIPATED VP RACING FUELS BRUCE ROGERS MEMORIAL MONEY MAKER CLASSIC AT GRANDVIEW SPEEDWAY OFFERS $7,500 TO WIN AND $1,000 TO MAKE THE FIELD FOR THE 50 LAPPER

NEW ON SPEEDWAY GROUNDS CAMPING RULES IN PLACE

BECHTELSVILLE, PA March 1, 2020 . . . One of the most talked about and most anticipated race events to be presented at Grandview Speedway each season marking the start of the 58th consecutive season of racing is set to happen when the Third Annual VP Racing Fuels Bruce Rogers Memorial Money Maker Classic is presented on Saturday, April 4.

The race, a 50-lapper on the one-third-mile, banked clay oval, will feature the Small Block Modifieds going up against Big Block Modifieds (Combined Modifieds) with the winner walking off with at least $7,500.

Pits will open at 2 p.m. while grandstand gates will be ready for business at 5 p.m. The green flag falls at 7 p.m.

New Yorker Matt Sheppard was the big winner over a field of more than 50 entries in 2019.

Both Duane Howard, Grandview’s NASCAR track champion in 2019, and Craig Von Dohren, winner of many events and championships at the Bechtelsville clay track, like the fact that the race pays $7,500 to win. And they like that every racer that makes the main event will go home with at least $1,000.

The Rogers Memorial, as in the past, is expected to attract quite a few outsiders as they seek the big bucks for the win and the prestige of winning the Classic named in memory of the late track owner. But of course the weekly regulars joining Howard and VonDohren is expected to include Doug Manmiller, Brett Kressley, Jared Umbenhauer, Kevin Hirthler, Ray Swinehart, and Kenny Gilmore along with many others.

Also attracting a lot of attention will be a strong field of the popular TP Truck Equipment Sportsman stock cars making up the second part of this special doubleheader event.

It is pretty much a win-win situation for all involved.”
