BOBBY GUNTHER WALSH SEEKS THAT ELUSIVE FIRST FEATURE WIN; WILL KICK OFF HIS 26TH SEASON IN THE VP RACING FUELS BRUCE ROGERS MONEY MAKER MEMORIAL AT GRANDVIEW APRIL 4

BECHTELSVILLE, PA March 6, 2020 . . . Close but no cigar just may describe Bobby Gunther Walsh’s stock car racing career. Though he has won a number of qualifying events he has not grabbed a win in a main event.

The popular, very popular, racer will be giving it another try in 2020 when he goes racing with the NASCAR T.P.Trailers Modifieds at Grandview Speedway. This will be his 26th year of racing and he is looking forward to it.

The WAEB-790 AM radio personality continues to be the number one on air personality at the Allentown in the Lehigh Valley area. He has been behind the microphone for close to 40 years and his show can also be seen on Service Electric Cable TV and Blue Ridge Cable.

And he continues to be one of the most popular racing talents seen in action on the one-third-mile, banked clay track each Saturday night throughout the season. When the events are over it is not difficult to find Walsh in the pit area as there is always a long line of fans visiting with him and collecting some of the free stuff provided by his many sponsors that he gives away.

The veteran racer would love to earn that first feature win this season at the NASCAR sanctioned racing facility. “I get a great deal of personal satisfaction out of racing, driving the race car, the challenges there are and just being out there racing against so many great talents, “said the Allentown resident.

When asked his age, Gunther responded with, “I graduated with Fred Flintstone so that should give you an idea of how old I am.” In other words he did not want to share that secret information with us.

His charity work continues to be very important to Bobby. He is actively involved with Allentown Rescue Mission (Helping homeless Men and their families) $155,000 raised in 2019 serving Gunther’s homemade meatballs. I have known Bobby for years and I am still waiting for him to ship me a few meatballs.

Animals In Distress (No Kill Shelter) $160,000 raised in 2019 with the Radiothon

Children’s Home of Easton (Helping abused/abandoned children) $170,000 raised plus Christmas presents with the WAEB Children’s Home Christmas Party

The Center For Animal Health and Welfare (No Kill Shelter) $115,000 raised with the annual Bowl-A-Thon held at one of his sponsors (Jordan Lanes) locations.

The Blue Star Mothers was Bobby’s veterans charity in 2019 (It is switched every couple of years). They average around $50,000 each year.

The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society Student of the Year MC/PR and Leukemia and Lymphoma Society Man and Woman of the Year MC/PR

And there are a host of other smaller events.

ResQ Natural Supplements, Dr. Eric Lebby & Dr. Thomas Dibenedetto, Orthopedic Specialists, Agentis Kitchen and Bath, Eden East, Paul Wright Roofing, Zongora Comfort Solutions, Just Born/Mike and Ike and Hot Tamales top the list of almost three dozen sponsors.

This season Bobby will be driving a 2019 Bicknell powered by Outlaw Engines. The always sharp looking racer will be prepared and housed by Rick Fenstermaker and his crew.

At the track, the crew is headed by Greg “Speedy” Saeger supported by Paul Rupert, Randy Miller, Joe Walsh and newcomer Travis Boyer. As Bobby is quick to point out none of the racing is possible without great efforts by the crews and great support from sponsors.

Bobby Gunther will be kicking off his 26th season of racing with the Third Annual VP Racing Fuels Bruce Rogers Money Marker Memorial at Grandview which rewards the winner with $7,500 and the prestige of winning a race named after the late popular track owner.

Adult admission for the Rogers Memorial is $28 while pit admission is $40.

Grandview Speedway will kick off their regular season schedule of NASCAR racing on Saturday, April 11th featuring T.P.Trailer Modifieds and T.P.Truck Equipment Sportsman. Racing will start at 7 p.m.

Enduro and Vintage racing is set for 1 p.m. on Saturday, March 21.

And there is the annual free-to-the public practice session, open to all divisions, set for 12 noon on March 28th. Pit admission is $30.

The complete schedule of Grandview events for 2020 can be found at www.grandviewspeedway.com. The track telephone number, for information, is 610.754.7688.

Bridgeport Speedway To Pay Up To $1000 Weekly To 602 Sportsman

Bridgeport, NJ - With the start of the 2020 season around the corner, Bridgeport Speedway has been dilligently peparing for the upcoming season. From creating a brand new race track, to securing essential sponsorships, to filling in key employee roles, to coming up with ways to make Bridgeport even more appealing to the race teams, track owner Doug Rose and his team has been hard at work for the past four months.

Doug Rose had the following to say; "The Ramey family was gracious enough to allow Brittany and I to follow along last year and watch their weekly operation. When doing so, the plans were to roll into the 2020 season trying to keep things as much the same as possible knowing that their formula over the last seven years was a success stated rose."

"Danny Serrano and I have been bouncing around the idea of doing something with the 602 Sportsman payout while not trying to put ourselves in a position not to succeed."

"We’ve sat down a couple times looking at different scenarios and what we could do or not do and still feel it would be safe for the well-being of the speedway."

"With the number of drivers that we feel Will be competing at the speedway in 2020 for the weekly point shows we feel comfortable making a couple concrete changes while putting a twist in there to compensate the drivers when we have excellent car counts for the South Jersey Overhead Door 602 Sportsman."

"We have decided to add three things to all points shows at Bridgeport Motorsports Park in 2020. We will be offering a tiered weekly payout with the base pay being the normal pay that the Ramey Family has been using which will be for 29 cars and under which has paid $500 to win with now $75 to take the green which has been raised since 2019.

When we have 30 plus cars we will bump up to the next purse, which will see the winner receive 750 to win with additional positions receiving extra purse money as well. On top of this purse adjustment, we are going to add in a gamblers program, which will add an additional $250 to the win regardless if we are over or under the 30 cars. So, on a weekly basis a driver who chooses to take the gamblers will be racing weekly for 750 or $1000 to win. We feel that this is huge for the growth of the 602 Sportsman division."

The non-point shows at Bridgeport will pay substantially more than the weekly purse; i.e. the winner of the "Kingdom of Speed Weekend" could possibly go home with $1,500! March 21 will serve as the track's 'practice day' with the following weekend being the grand opening for the 2020 season.

THIS WILL LEAVE YOU SPEECHLESS

With the start of the 2020 season being a month away, Bridgeport Motorsports Park has some unfinished business to prove to fans. Fans have been making assumptions about whether the track will be finished in time, or whether we will see racing action starting in April instead. We can tell you we are on target and all systems are a go, and this track is going to leave you speechless.....

With that being said, we are officially one month away from the Kingdom of Speed 100 weekend which will provide seat grabbing, adrenaline filled racing in six, that's right we said SIX, divisions of racing! The show will include the Spec 358 Small Block Modifieds, Bridgeport Modifieds (both 358 Spec Small Blocks and Big Block Modifieds), 602 Sportsman, Street Stocks, the Delaware Auto Exchange Mid-Atlantic Sprint Car Series, and for the first time ever USAC SpeedSTRs. This will be the start of a new era at Bridgeport Motorsports Park and YOU WON'T WANT TO MISS IT!

Tickets for this historic event, as well as tickets for the spectacular Monster Truck Throwdown show, can be purchased at
