PENNSYLVANIA 410 SPRINT SPEED WEEK SERIES ($7,000 to win) & 358 MODIFIEDS ($3,000 to win) IN THUNDER SERIES DOUBLE HEADER TUESDAY, JULY 3 AT GRANDVIEW

BECHTELSVILLE, PA (June 19, 2018) – It’s one of the most anticipated events of the racing calendar and for the 24th year the Pennsylvania Posse elite group of racers charge towards the high banks on the hill to salute sprint car racing in the Keystone state.

NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series plays host to the Pennsylvania Sprint Car Speedweek on Tuesday, July 3 at Grandview Speedway in Bechtelsville, PA. The Speedweek event is presented by Pioneer Pole Buildings and features the 410 Sprint Cars and the NASCAR 358 Modifieds, in an exciting doubleheader.

The Grandview Speedweek event features a 35-lap Sprint Car A-Main -- the fifth race of a ten-race stretch for the winged warriors. Drivers from across the region will compete for a $7,000 winner’s share. Tenth place will pay $1,050 with $400 to start the A-main.

Also on the card, Grandview’s own NASCAR 358 Modifieds battle in a 30-lap event, with $3,000 up for grabs.

Expected entrants include Danny Dietrich; Greg Hodnett, an 8-time winner at Grandview Speedway; Lucas Wolfe, Ryan Smith, Freddie Rahmer, Brandon Rahmer, and Alan Krimes.

In 2017, a late race incident with leader Ryan Smith handed the top spot over to NASCAR-star Kyle Larson, who would go on to claim the Grandview Speedway Speedweek victory.

The Grandview small-block Modified stars will be out in full force defending their home turf: Brett Kressley, Craig VonDohren, Jeff Strunk, Jared Umbenhauer and Doug Manmiller.

PAUCH IS THE HEAD OF THE CLASS AT NEW EGYPT SPEEDWAY'S GRADUATION NIGHT

New Egypt, NJ (June 17, 2018) - At New Egypt Speedway's Graduation Night,
Billy Pauch, Jr. headed the field to win the Modified feature. The Hammer
Sportsman feature was won by David Burns. Eric Palmer picked up the victory
in the Crate Modified class. Karl Freyer topped his rivals in the Larry's
Hot Rods & Harley's Northeast Wingless Sprint Car main event. In the Lyons
Construction/Metal Fab Rookie division, Ryan Heim scored the win and took
home the 2018 Championship.

Steve Davis grabbed the lead as the 30-lap Modified feature began. Following
two caution periods and five tours completed, Davis was still in control
with Ryan Godown and Billy Pauch, Jr. next in line and battling for second
place. By lap seven, Pauch, Jr. slipped by Godown to take over second.
Following another break in the action for debris on the track on the eighth
circuit, Pauch, Jr. blasted by Davis and into first place. Twelfth place
starting David VanHorn was continuing his advancement towards the front as
he motored by Godown and into third with ten revolutions completed. After an
additional appearance of the yellow flag on lap eleven, VanHorn slipped by
Davis and began to pursue Pauch, Jr. As the contest reached the halfway
point, the top two remained intact with Brandon Grosso in third, Danny Bouc
in fourth and Godown dropping down to fifth. On lap sixteen, a tight battle
for the lead led to slight contact between the top two of Pauch, Jr. and
VanHorn. With ten laps remaining, Pauch, Jr. had pulled slightly away from
his rivals with VanHorn holding off Grosso for second, Bouc in fourth and
John McClelland climbing into fifth after an earlier visit to the pits.
Throughout the final third of the race, Pauch, Jr. hit his marks and crossed
the finish line to gain his third victory of the year. VanHorn held off the
strong advancements of Grosso to finish in second. With Grosso in third,
Bouc was fourth and McClelland was fifth. By placing ahead of Bouc,
McClelland and Dominick Buffalino in the May Modified Madness Series finale,
Grosso won the 2018 May Modified Madness title. Ryan Godown and David
VanHorn won the Modified heat races.

David Burns, the 2017 Lyons Construction/Metal Fab Rookie champion,
inherited the lead on the eleventh circuit and paced the field for the
remaining distance to win the 20-lap Hammer Sportsman feature. Joseph Brown
led the opening ten tours of the race. A restart following a caution on the
tenth lap saw the top two of Brown and Shaun Ratchford collide and set off a
chain reaction accident in front of the field. The incident elevated Burns
into first place. Defending champion Billy Osmun completed the race in
second. After missing his heat race due to mechanical issues, fourteenth
place starting Art Liedl finished the contest in third. Marty Resnick was
fourth and Bob Lineman, Jr came home in fifth. Hammer Sportsman qualifying
events went to Billy Osmun and David Burns.

With the time limit reached in the scheduled 20-lap Crate Modified feature,
Eric Palmer was declared the victor when the checkered flag waved after
sixteen circuits were completed. The triumph was Palmer's eighth career win.
The runner-up spot was taken by Steve Hicks. Third place went to John
Aumick. Kyle Kania wound up in fourth with fifth going to Ryan Simmons. Rob
Mancini and Eric Palmer were victorious in the heat races for the Crate
Modifieds.

Karl Freyer led every step of the way to win the 20-lap main event for the
Larry's Hot Rods & Harley's Northeast Wingless Sprint Cars. Freyer survived
two late race restarts to collect his first win at New Egypt Speedway. Rich
Mellor came home in second place. Third place was claimed by Bobby Tersillo.
Brian Spencer was fourth and Lee Nardelli finished in fifth. The qualifying
events in the Larry's Hot Rods & Harley's Northeast Wingless Sprint Cars
division were taken by Bobby Tersillo and Eric Jennings.

seven of the eight Rookie events in 2018. Bobby Holzwarth was next in line.
Kevin Borden, Jr., Matt Miller and Paige Brown rounded out the top five.
