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.

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.

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.

WILLMAN FINALLY BREAKS THROUGH WITH NASCAR MODIFIED WIN AT GRANDVIEW SATURDAY NIGHT

LEIBY, CASSEL AND DECKER ARE ALSO WINNERS

WNPV RADIO CHAMPIONSHIP NIGHT NEXT SATURDAY

BECHTELSVILLE, PA. September 8, 2019 . . . John Willman led the past three T.P. Trailers NASCAR 358 Modified 30-lap features, but always fell laps short of being in victory lane at the drop of the checkered.

The veteran racer missed several Saturday nights at the 1/3-mile Grandview Speedway oval due to engine problems or lack of crew help.

The “Ultimate Underdog” hasn’t won a feature since April 3, 2010, but Willman changed the status of that to be the ninth different winner this season in the Modified division. He ran every groove possible once he put the Hampton Bros./Carroll Hine powered No. 74W in front on the seventh lap. No matter which lane runner-up and current point leader Duane Howard ran he couldn’t get around or underneath him for the pass. Not only did Willman have to deal with Howard, Jeff Strunk joined the mix near the end for a three-way battle.

Willman dedicated the win to his father-in-law who is in ill-health and his wife Beth who was not in attendance since she was home with him.

In the TP Truck Equipment NASCAR Sportsman 25-lap feature, 16-year-old rookie Jimmy Leiby, who became a regular competitor with a crate motor in late July, took over the lead on the eighth lap and went on to win his first-ever career victory by holding off a fast closing second place Mike Mammana who gained ground as they approached lap traffic. Leiby is the 14th different winner in the division

Andy Cassel won the 10-lap Modified feature in the Blast From The Past while Rich Decker collected the win in the Vintage division.

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 Willman and Leiby. An extra $100 went to Leiby for being the highest finishing crate engine driver.

The final NASCAR point races of the season are set for Saturday, September 14 as WNPV-AM Radio Champion’s Night is presented. The T.P.Trailers NASCAR 358 Modifieds and T.P.Trucks Equipment Sportsman racing talents will battle it out for the lucrative championships and top point finishing positions.

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.

Jesse Leiby led six laps of the Modified feature enduring pressure from Eric Biehn and Willman.

Biehn while running a solid second, found himself facing the wrong direction in the second turn with Steve Swinehart, left with nowhere to go becoming involved in the sixth lap caution. On the restart Willman charged into first while Whitmoyer followed through for second to challenge. Leiby, Frank Cozze and Howard made it a five-way battle for the lead.

Cozze, who was right in the thick of things in third, stopped in the fourth turn out of contention on the lap 12 restart. It was still Willman showing the way with the top five composed of Whitmoyer, Howard, Strunk and Craig Von Dohren. Trying to get into a top five position was Brett Kressley.

Willman ran the middle, top and bottom portion of the track in anticipation of keeping Howard behind him. Howard had taken over second on the 15th lap and was running the highest path possible to try to become the new leader.

Right behind Willman and Howard, Von Dohren and Whitmoyer were waiting in anticipation for either one to falter and advance a position.

The top five remained the same bumper-to-bumper until Kressley overtook fifth on the 22nd lap.

Despite the struggle to gain a position the order never changed.

Howard made one last ditch effort to dive underneath Willman coming in for the checkered, but it was useless and Willman earned a crowd-pleasing fourth career Saturday night triumph. Howard was a close second trailed by Howard, Von Dohren and Kressley.

Ron Kline, Steve Swinehart, Jesse Leiby and Justin Grim were the heat winners while the consies went to Clay Butler, returning after his barrel-roll along the homestretch a few weeks ago and Timmy Buckwalter.

Steve Young led seven laps in the Sportsman feature before Tom Miller, while running second, spun in the fourth turn. The lead changed hands on the restart when Leiby shot past Young. Mammana followed through for second at the same time.

Within a few laps Leiby opened up some daylight over the rest of the top five that consisted of Mammana, Brad Brightbill the current point leader; Young and Jesse Landis.

Mammana reeled in Leiby, who was caught behind lap traffic, with two laps to go, but he didn’t have enough time and Leiby went on to victory with Mammana, Brightbill, Young and Landis in tow.

Young, Leiby and Miller won the heats. The consi was won by Brad Grim.

Time is running out to sign up for lap sponsorships and heat race sponsorships for the September 21st Freedom 76 are available $20 for laps and $200 for a heat race. Great opportunities to wish your favorite driver well or gain some great exposure for your business. Check in with Tina Rogers or Tommy Kramer at the track.

JEFF STRUNK, BRAD ARNOLD AND ANDY RESSLER WIN FEATURES AT GRANDVIEW SATURDAY

BECHTELSVILLE, PA. September 1, 2019 . . . Jeff Strunk, ten-time Grandview Speedway Modified point champion, came through the pack from his 11th starting berth in the TP Trailers NASCAR 358 Modified 30-lap feature on Saturday night and was able to catch up to first and second place runners Ron Kline and John Willman, somewhat hindered by lapped traffic, by the 22nd lap to make it a three-way battle for the lead.

Strunk finally cleared Willman with three laps to go. Seeing the white flag in starter Ray Kemp’s hand, Strunk passed Kline and went on to chalk up his fourth win of the season. Strunk was pleased with the track preparation and commented the victory was for No. 126 car owner Glenn Hyneman, who was not in attendance since he was not feeling well.

Brad Arnold overtook rookie leader Scott Kohler on the 15th lap of the 25-lap TP Truck Equipment NASCAR Sportsman feature and went on to become the 13th different winner in the division when he claimed his first win of the season over runner-up Jack Butler in the caution-filled event.

Former late model driver Andy Ressler, now competing in the X-cel 600 Modified class, “finally found a division he could win in at the track.” He passed leader Matt Warner with two laps to go in the 20-lap feature and went on to score the win.

The popular Blast from the Past Vintage racers are part of another tripleheader show on Saturday, September 7 along with the T.P.Trailers NASCAR 358 Modifieds and T.P.Trucks NASCAR Sportsman racers at Grandview Speedway. Racing gets the green at 7:30 p.m. Spectator gates open at 5:30 p.m.

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 Kline and Kohler. Wyatt Harrar, a rookie who just recently started in the division and placed 12th, received an extra $100 for being the highest finishing crate engine driver.

As usual it was Willman taking the early lead at the start of the Modified feature with pressure from Kline, Jesse Leiby, Mike Lisowski and Briggs Danner.

Kevin Hirthler spun in the second turn to bring out the yellow with four laps completed. A two-car second turn incident voided the restart. On the next attempt Kline charged past Willman to become the new pacesetter.

While Kline showed the way Willman and Ray Swinehart engaged in a side-by-side dual for second occasionally swapping paint.

By the ½-way marker the front runners now comprised of Kline, Willman, Strunk, Swinehart and Lisowski encountered lap traffic.

At the conclusion of the 22nd lap Kline, Willman and Strunk were all vying for the lead with neither one giving in.

Strunk overtook second on the 27th lap and set his sights on Kline, who was in search of his first career win in the division gathering many wins and even a championship in the Late Model division before making the switch to the Modified ranks.

Kline’s hopes of victory were erased by Strunk with one lap remaining. After several tries Strunk finally succeeded to pass him to claim his 73rd Saturday night career win. Posting his best finish was Kline trailed by Willman. Swinehart and Lisowski, fourth and fifth place finishers finally had a changed of luck to have their season best run.

Brett Gilmore, Brett Kressley, Jesse Leiby and Duane Howard won the four qualifying heats. The consies were won by Danny Erb and Kory Fleming.

Kohler took the early lead in the Sportsman feature with challenges coming from Steve Young, Kenny Bock, Nathan Mohr and Jimmy Leiby.

The red was thrown on the fifth lap after Mark Kemmerer was got into the first turn infield track tire which in turn caused him to make contact with the tire sending it onto the track and then he flipped up and over it. He was uninjured. Management deemed Andrew Kreis responsible for the incident and sent him pit side out of competition for the remainder of the race. Kohler resumed the lead on the restart with Beck, Arnold, Jesse Landis and Mike Mammana in pursuit.

Arnold moved into second to challenge Kohler on the seventh lap restart needed when Mohr was spun along the backstretch.

Within a few laps Kohler and Arnold were in a door handle to door handle battle for first and no matter how many bids Arnold made to get by him, they were unsuccessful.

The final caution period, in which there were several, was on the 15th lap when Lex Shive stopped in the fourth turn. At the same time Keith Brightbill, the current point leader went pit side with a flat tire while running fifth and never returned to competition. When action resumed Arnold charged into the lead.

In a few laps Arnold had a comfortable lead built up and was now being chased by Butler, Kohler, Landis and Ryan Beltz.

Arnold never looked back and went on to tally up his fifth career win followed by Butler, Kohler, Landis and Beltz.

Jimmy Leiby, Mammana and Bock were the heat winners.

In the X-cel 600 Modified feature Matt Warner was the early leader at the drop of the green with Ressler righty on his bumper along with Hunter Deihl, Brianna James and Jeff Sechrist.

Warner maintained the top spot until Ressler passed him with two laps remaining when lapped traffic slowed the front runners pace.

Ressler led the way for the final laps to claim the win. Finishing second was Warner followed by Korey Inglin, Jeromy Guistwite and Jon Josko.

Heat winners were Warner, Diehl and Sam Sciccihitano.

The final NASCAR point races of the season are set for Saturday, September 14 as WNPV-AM Radio Champion’s Night is presented. The T.P.Trailers NASCAR 358 Modifieds and T.P.Trucks Equipment Sportsman will battle it out for the lucrative championships and top point finishing positions.

LAUBACH FIRST TIME 2019 WINNER IN NASCAR 358 MODIFIED FEATURE AT GRANDVIEW, ROOKIE PARKER GULDIN EARNS SECOND SPORTSMAN FEATURE WHILE BRETT PETERS AND WES CASSEL WIN VINTAGE FEATURES SATURDAY

BECHTELSVILLE, PA. AUGUST 25, 2019 . . . Rick “Scooby” Laubach became a weekly competitor in the 2019 TP Trailers NASCAR 358 Modified season on a regular Saturday night basis at Grandview Speedway after only running the beginning of the season events other times. He was actually the point leader in the early stages of the year until hampered by motor and other mechanical issues as he struggled some weeks to even qualify and would actually run another competitors car just to be able to make the feature.

This Saturday “The Quaker Shaker” had a better engine ready for action and it paid off.

Following a torrid battle with John Willman, Laubach piloted the Gary Hermann-owned Blinderman sponsored 358 Modified into the lead on the 24th lap of the 30-lap Modified feature, coming from 12th starting spot, and went on to chalk up his first career Saturday night feature victory.

Rookie Parker Guldin made a clean sweep of the TP Truck Equipment Sportsman activities. First he won his qualifying event and topped the night off with his second 25-lap feature victory. Once again he picked up an extra $100 for being the highest finishing crate engine powered Sportsman.

In the 20-lap Blast From The Past feature, Brett Peters won the Modified portion while Wes Cassel was the winner in the Vintage class.

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 Willman and Guldin

Friday night, August 30th, 7 p.m. action features Enduro and Vintage racing. The Enduro racers will offer a Big Car and Small car race, Junkyard race plus Xcel 600 Modifieds.

Another tripleheader show of action packed stock car racing is set for next Saturday, August 31, with a 7:30 p.m. starting time. Included in the excitement will be the T.P.Trailers NASCAR 358 Modifieds, T.P.Truck Equipment Sportsman and a first time visit of the XCEL 600 Modifieds. Adults pay $15 while youngsters under 12 are admitted free.

John Willman led the Modified feature for one lap before Richie Hitzler, a rookie, merged into first.

Jockeying for positions behind Hitzler were Willman, Ray Swinehart, Dylan Swinehart and Frank Cozze.

A homestretch tangle on the 11th lap between Justin Grim and Glenn Strunk regrouped the field as the yellow came out. The restart was void following a chain reaction tangle in the fourth turn. Hitzler continued to show the way when action resumed, but now second through fifth was comprised of Willman, Swinehart, Laubach and Cozze.

Willman was back in the top spot by the 14th lap and three laps later Laubach was in pursuit.

A three-way battle for third between Swinehart, Duane Howard and Cozze ensued ahead of Willman and Laubach.

In no time Laubach, in the Teo chassis mount, reeled in Willman and passed him for the lead on the 24th circuit.

Ryan Grim and Briggs Danner set up a one-lap shoot out to the checkered when they tangled in the second turn. Laubach wasted no time pulling away when the race went green again as he was determined to be in the winner’s circle at the conclusion. That’s exactly where he was earning a well-deserved triumph trailed by Willman, for the second week in a row; Howard, current point leader and last week’s feature winner came from 14th starting spot to gain fourth followed by Craig Von Dohren.

Heats were won by Willman, Howard, R. Swinehart and Jordan Henn. Justin Grim and Danny Erb won the consies.

At the drop of the green in the Sportsman feature Guldin was the early pacesetter. Behind him were Kenny Bock, Jesse Landis, Mike Mammana and Brad Brightbill, who was on a mission and came through the pack on the outside from the 14th starting spot to round out the top five.

Mammana inherited second on the sixth lap when Landis dropped out of competition allowing him to challenge Guldin.

Steve Young brought out the first yellow when he slowed coming off the fourth turn. Guldin held his own on the restart, but it was Brightbill making his presence known pullup a bit. Miller continued to show the way on the restart with pressure now coming from Chris Esposito, Bock, and Brightbill putting the pressure on.

The yellow was thrown again after a fourth turn multi-car tangle with 19 laps completed. The restart was thwarted when several cars made contact in turn one. Before the restart, Brightbill, running a solid second, pitted with a left rear flat tire. He did rejoin the race, but could only get back up to ninth. On the restart Guldin kept Mammana, Brad Arnold, Brian Hirthler and Ryan Beltz in tow.

The front running order never changed in the final laps as Guldin was triumphant again chased across by Mammana, Arnold and Beltz.

Young, Guldin and Mammana won the heats. The consi went to Mark Kemmerer.

Jeff Paulson led the Blast From the Past feature for seven laps before Andy Cassel moved in front on the eighth lap restart brought out when runner-up at the time Todd Lapp spun in the third turn.

In a few laps the front runners encountered lapped traffic and Brett Peters was closing in on Cassel very quickly. Peters took advantage of the situation to take over the lead on the 19th lap.

Peters never looked back and went on to take the win chased across the line by A. Cassel, Paulson, W. Cassel and Mike Garris Sr.

Lap sponsorships and heat race sponsorships for the September 21st Freedom 76 are available $20 for laps and $200 for a heat race. Check in with Tina Rogers or Tommy Kramer at the track. Telephone Ernie Saxton at 267.934.7286 for complete information.
