Howard and Brightbill Crowned 2019 Grandview Speedway Point Champions

KRESSLEY AND BELTZ SCORE NASCAR FEATURE VICTORIES IN FINAL POINT RACES OF SEASON

BECHTELSVILLE, PA SEPTEMBER 15, 2019 . . . Brett “The Threat” Kressley avoided being involved in two red flagged incidents that blocked the track during the running of the T.P. Trailers NASCAR 358 Modified 30-lap feature on Saturday night at Grandview Speedway in the action sponsored by WNPV 1440 AM Radio, Lansdale. The Orefield leadfoot went on to chalk up his third win of the season.

Ryan Beltz overtook Tom Miller to become the new leader on the sixth lap of the TP Truck Equipment NASCAR Sportsman 25-lap feature to claim his first win of the season and become the 15th different winner in the series. The last time Beltz stood in victory lane was June 30, 2018.

Providing the feature winners met the necessary requirements, they received monetary awards from T.P. Trailers and a certificate from VP Fuels for product awards. The Dan’s Deli ½-way hoagie award recipients were Jesse Leiby and Beltz. Wyatt Harrar, who finished 10th in the Sportsman feature received an extra $100 for being the highest finishing crate engine driver.

Kressley and Beltz may have won the battle by winning their respective features, but it was Duane Howard and Brad Brightbill that won the war claiming the 2019 point championship title in their divisions.

Howard, involved in some early mishaps finished seventh, but had enough points to actually clinch the crown last week; earned his sixth Modified point title at the 1/3-mile oval behind the wheel of the Norm’s Save Station/Norm Hansell-owned No. 357. Howard, who praised Norm and the crew for providing him with a great car powered by a Carroll Hine engine every week, said it takes a team effort to win a championship.

Sportsman point champion Brightbill, who missed a feature earlier in the year on the night they ran a make-up feature in which he had engine problems and didn’t participate in the regular show feature, still had enough points to earn his first title ever in his self-owned No. 19. He became the fifth different driver to earn the title since 2015.

The big one, the 49th annual Freedom 76, is set for Saturday, September 21 at 7 p.m. The winner walks off with at least $25,000.

Kicking off the weekend will be the Freedom 38 Sportsman action on Friday night at 7:30 p.m. The event pays $2,000 to win and is sure to attract a stellar field of Sportsman racing talent.

The Delaware Auto Exchange Mid-Atlantic Sprints will also be part of the doubleheader show. Featured with the Sprints will be standout racers such as Eddie Wagner, Tom Carberry, Tim Tanner, Jr., and others.

Jesse Leiby, a rookie that started competing midway through the season, took the early lead in the Modified feature trailed by the son and father duo of Steve and Ray Swinehart; Brett Gilmore and Craig Whitmoyer.

With five laps completed, Ray Swinehart took over second and set his sights on Leiby.

The first yellow was thrown on the 17th lap when Louden Reimert slowed between the third and fourth turn, but then pulled away. R. Swinehart, winless since the Forrest Rogers Memorial on September 1, 2018, became the new leader when action resumed.

The red had to be thrown on the 19th lap for a multi-car accident that blocked the track that eliminated defending point champion Mike Gular and Frank Cozze. Eight cars were out of contention on the restart red in turn one. It was Swinehart in front when racing went green again followed by Doug Manmiller, Leiby, Kressley and Whitmoyer.

Kressley was slicing through the pack advancing a position almost every lap and by the 22nd lap he was challenging Swinehart for the lead.

A new leader emerged on the 24th lap when Kressley stormed past Swinehart for the number one position to become the third different front runner.

Once Kressley took command he never looked back and pulled the family-owned No. 19K into the winner’s circle to post his 12th career Modified feature victory. Claiming his season best finish in second was Swinehart followed by Manmiller, who despite a damaged race car in third; early leader Leiby in fourth and Whitmoyer fifth who had his best run since May 4, 2019.

The four qualifying heats were won by Danny Erb, Brett Gilmore, Whitmoyer and R. Swinehart. Rick Laubach and Gular won the consies.

Sportsman action saw Tom Miller take the early lead to set the pace for three laps before the red was thrown when one of the back runners was pinched into the third turn guard rail which triggered a chain reaction that eliminated ten cars. Jack Butler, who was also involved, was shaken up a bit. Miller resumed the lead on the restart with Scott Kohler, Beltz, Dean Bachman and Wyatt Harrar in pursuit.

Beltz moved into second on the fifth lap and one lap later he put the Just Cruisin’ No. 221 at the head of the pack.

Within no time Beltz had a straightaway lead built up leaving Kohler, Bachman, Brandon Edgar, a feature winner earlier in the year and Brian Hirthler dicing for the remaining positions.

Positions behind Beltz were constantly changing, but he never faltered and went on to garner his third career win. Having his best finish of the year was runner-up Bachman, followed by Hirthler, newly crowned point champion Brightbill, who managed to come home in fourth after being involved in the third lap incident and having to go pit side before rejoining the race in time and Brad Arnold, who was also a feature winner this year.

Kohler, Steve Young, Parker Guldin and Mike Mammana won the heats. Consies went to Nate Brinker and Kenny Bock

Fans attending Friday’s doubleheader featuring the Freedom 38 for Sportsman and Mid-Atlantic Sprints will also have this as the final opportunity to purchase their Freedom 76 tickets for just $35 rather than the race day price of $40.

Admission for the Friday night show is $12 for adults, $5 for youngsters 6 through 11 and admission is free for kids under 6. Starting time is 7:30 p.m. There is no rain date for this event.

Then on Saturday the $25,000 to win dirt track racing classic, the 49th Annual Freedom 76, is expected to attract many of the top names. Gates for advance ticket holders open at 3 p.m. while admission gates will open at 3:30 p.m.

The first qualifying event will get the green at 7 p.m.

Adult tickets are priced at $40, youngsters 6 through 11 pay 10 and kids under 6 are admitted free.

EMOTIONAL STEVEN REED TOPS WALL MODIFIEDS SATURDAY

WALL TOWNSHIP, N.J. ~ Two-time All American Auto Group Modified stock car champion Steven Reed raced to his fourth main event win of the season Saturday night at Wall Stadium Speedway. The Jackson resident and current point leader was emotional in the winner's circle after the event.

A pair of drivers, Joey Merlino of Pine Hill and Kevin Davison of Howell, fought for their first main event wins in the test as Reed worked his way to the front of the pack. A lap 18 restart saw Davison power to the front past Merlino in the outside lane before another caution slowed the action. Davison again worked the outside lane on the ensuing restart before both Merlino and Davison tangled in turn two. Reed then raced into the lead after his climb to the head of the field.

Reed then survived a few more cautions before stretching his advantage to the checker flag. Andrew Krause of Holmdel and Eddie McCarthy of Pt. Pleasant were second and third while Brick's Eric Mauriello and Neptune's Chris Andretta wrapped up the top five.

“This win is for the fans,” an emotional Reed said after the win. “Every week a lot of people come up to me in the stands and that really means a lot. Some come up and wish me luck like I'm a man going off to war. Their encouragement helps. Even the haters help us by encouraging us to go faster!

“I also have to thank my family and backers for all they do to make this car fast. It is so much fun to drive because it is so good. My spotter kept telling to to take it easy and save the tires in case there was another restart. It is hard to slow down when the car is so good!”

Point leader Elliot Wohl of Beachwood took a step toward his first O'Shea's Auto Repair Factory Stock title by wining his fifth 25-lap main event of the year. Former champ Scott Riggleman of Manchester led much of the first half of the race before settling for second, while Tom Rajkowski of Fords, Wall's Bryan O'Shea and Joey Helberg of Union wrapped up the top five.

Former champion Brian Osborn of Howell raced into the lead on lap five and drove on to his second victory of the year in the 25-lapper for the Surfside Collision 4 Cylinder Stocks. Alonzo Morales of Mt. Ephraim and point leader Neil Rutt III of Edison were second and third while Sal Liguori of Hazlet and Jeffrey Loesch of Neptune City were fourth and fifth.

Eric Mauriello jumped into the Alan Camp No. x3 for the Center State Engineering Sportsman 25-lapper and crossed the finish line first, but when that team suffered a tire bank infraction Jonathan Laureigh of Lanoka Harbor was awarded the feature race win. Farmingdale's Tommy Martino, point leader Carsten DiGiantomasso, Jake Nelke of Manahawkin and Roland DeMartino of Beachwood were second through fifth.

Auto racing continues at Wall Stadium Speedway this Saturday (Sept. 21) night with the Factory Stocks battling in two 25-lappers and the Sportsman cars and Mike's Performance Center Limited Late Models each racing in a 25-lapper. The visiting Three Quarter Midgets will race in a 25-lap event on the inner oval and Demolition Derby action will also be presented. Grandstand gates open at 5:00 p.m., qualifying begins at 5:45 p.m. and features start at 7:00 p.m. This “Pack the Track” night event offers a discounted admission of just $10 for adults and $5 of children aged 6 to 16.

Sammons Scores Third While Pauch Jr. Wraps Up 2019 Title At New Egypt

New Egypt, NJ – Davey Sammons and Dakota Kessler led the 30-Lap Vahlco Wheels Modified feature to the green. Sammons would jump out the early lead and led the first six laps when Johnny Guarino, Cale Ross and Wade Hendrickson tangled in turn three. Sammons would jump back out to the lead on the ensuing restart with Kessler in tow. The second caution of the event would fly on lap ten when Kevin Vaclavicek, Dominick Buffalino and Blaine Bracelin got together in turn four. Sammons would again take command of the field on the restart. Brandon Grosso would take over the runner-up spot from Kessler after starting 10th on lap 13. The only slight hiccup that Sammons would have would be on lap 15 when his right side sail panel came loose and folded over which would not phase him one bit as he continued to set a torrid pace. Billy Pauch Jr. who started 12th would now be in the third position as him and Grosso battled for second while they chased after Sammons. 2018 track champion David VanHorn had now raced up from his 13th starting spot while him and Mike Butler put on a crowd-pleasing duel running side by side for the fourth position lap after lap toward the end of the event. They would all be no match for Sammons and he would lead wire-to-wire scoring his third Vahlco Wheels Modified main event of 2019 at New Egypt Speedway. Brandon Grosso would come home second with Billy Pauch Jr. third, David VanHorn fourth, and Mike Butler completing the top five.

“Two weeks ago we changed something on the car and had a motor issue, we got everything back in time for last week and found out we had a bent valve. So, we found something and it took us two weeks to run it. I drove as hard as I could. The track was really fun, I’ve won races where I had to run the bottom and it’s nice to win one where you have to get up on the wheel. We fought for this and we’re just happy to be here”, said Sammons post race.

After clinching the 2019 Vahlco Wheels Modified title the week prior, Billy Pauch Jr. was officially crowned champion this week, for Pauch Jr. it is his second championship in three years and four straight seasons where he hasn’t finished worse than second in points.

“It was a tough and challenging year, we really got going there. We really wanted to win tonight but hats off to Davey (Sammons), Our guys are awesome, this means a lot, I grew up here as a kid, we’ve had a good couple of years here and we have a lot of fun”, Pauch Jr. said following the race.

Brian Spencer picked up his second straight Larry’s Hot Rods & Harley’s Northeast Wingless Sprint Car feature over Rich Mellor, Larry Drake, Duane Nixon and Heidi Hedin. With his second place finish Rich Mellor has clinched the 2019 Larry’s Hot Rods & Harley’s Northeast Wingless Sprint Car championship.

Robbie Holzwarth scored his second Crate Modified win of 2019 and the second of his career over Ryan Heim, Sammy Martz Jr., Matt Miller and Johnny Bangs. The point battle is closer than ever with Joe Toth leading Johnny Bangs by just two points and Ryan Simmons 10 out of the lead in third heading into next week's final points race. The Crate Modified results are currently unofficial.

Rob Longo won the 15-lap feature for the Mike’s Performance Center 4-Cylinders over point leader Mike Fox, Joe Garey Sr., Dom Antonelli and Scott Dunn.

New Egypt Speedway is back in action next Saturday night when Hammer Electric presents Championship Night along with ¼ Midget Night. Track champions in the Larry’s Hot Rods & Harley’s Northeast Wingless Sprint Cars, Hammer Sportsman, Crate Modifieds, Street Stocks and the Mike’s Performance Center 4-Cylinders will all be crowned.

WNPV-AM RADIO CHAMPION’S NIGHT SET FOR SATURDAY AT GRANDVIEW

HOWARD AND BRIGHTBILL LEAD POINT STANDINGS ON FINAL POINT NIGHT

49TH ANNUAL FREEDOM 76 CLASSIC, $25,000 TO THE WINNER, TAKES PLACE SEPTEMBER 21

BECHTELSVILLE, PA September 10, 2019 . . . The final NASCAR point races of the season are set for this Saturday, September 14th, at Grandview Speedway with the running of WNPV-AM Radio Champion’s Night. Duane Howard is the pacesetter in the T.P.Trailers 358 Modified division while Brad Brightbill is leading the standings in the T.P.Truck Equipment Sportsman division.

During the season, there have been 19 feature races presented in each division with 59 racers competing in the Modifieds and 50 in the Sportsman. Twelve different racers have won Sportsman features while the Modifieds have had 9 different winners making for a very competitive season.

With all the different winners during the season it is anyone’s guess to who will be feature winners in the season finale point races.

Attendees coming out on Saturday will have a chance to say hello to ten time champion Jeff Strunk as part of the Low Down and Dirty Meet & Greet which gets started at 5 p.m. Sportsman rookie, a two feature winner, Parker Guldin will also be part of the event as will Jimmy Leiby, winner of the Sportsman feature last Saturday.

Fans will have the opportunity to win pairs of tickets for the NASCAR Monster Energy Cup race, October 6, at Dover International Speedway along with a four pack of “ride all day with coaster” tickets to the popular Knoebel’s Amusement Park, America’s largest free admission park which features the #1 Wooden Roller Coaster in the world, the Phoenix, all courtesy of WNPV.

In fourth is Kyle Lilick having earned 3473 points and fifth spot belongs to Brad Arnold with 3334 counters.

And when this night of action packed racing is over all attention will turn to the 49th edition of the Freedom 76. Many of the top names in dirt track Modified stock car racing have won the Freedom 76 Classic at Grandview Speedway. And there are many top names in the sport that are still without a win in the prestigious race. Many past winners and non-winners will be entered in the September 21st 49th Annual Freedom 76, the richest event of its type in the area, looking to grab the $25,000 first place money and the prestige that goes with the victory. With that kind of money being offered you just never know who will show up.

Veteran racer and WAEB-AM Radio personality Bobby Gunther Walsh has again signed on to sponsor the Freedom 76 Hard Charger Award in the amount of $500. It is supported by three of his sponsors including Mrs T’s Pierogies, Just Born and Res-Q.

And the night before, the Mid-Atlantic Sprint Series will be in action along with the $2,000 to win Freedom 38 for Sportsman.

Both nights of racing will start at 7 p.m.
