BUTLER AND KRESSLEY WIN RAINED OUT MODIFIED FEATURE FROM AUGUST 12TH, MAHANEY WINS SECOND MODIFIED FEATURE WHILE EGRIE WINS LATE MODEL MAIN AND KEMMERER TAKES SPORTSMAN FEATURE

VONDOHREN, SCHUTZ AND BRIAN HIRTHLER WIN NASCAR TRACK TITLES

BECHTELSVILLE, PA. September 10, 2017 – Racing action on Saturday night at Grandview Speedway sponsored by WNPV 1440 AM Radio, Lansdale, certainly had its share of varieties in all divisions.

Both Skip and Walt Smith paced the feature fields for all divisions in the Blast From The Past Red No. 2 driven by Dave Smith who lost his life in a freak highway incident while working for the township. Dave was the father of sportsman driver Derrick Smith.

In the rained out T.P. Trailers 358 NASCAR Modified 30-lap feature from August 19 it was Clay Butler, who became a track regular mid-season crossing the line first to register his first career win at the oval to become the 13th different winner. However due to an official error with the caution light, Brett Kressley, who had taken the lead on the 29th lap also shared the win.

Mike Gular had slowed down and as quick as the yellow went on it was turned off. By that time Kressley had backed off the throttle and Butler along with Jared Umbenhauer shot past him, but the yellow was never officially thrown. Management felt it was only fair to credit both Butler and Kressley with the wins.

Mike Mahaney, who travels from New York to pilot the Rod Breitenstein-owned No. 14 on occasion, had a rather dismal start to the season when he competed, but once the team discovered it was an electrical problem, they were in the hunt. Mahaney went from fourth to first by the second lap and despite yellow flags that fell when he needed them to regroup the pack when he encountered heavy lap traffic, he still pulled into victory lane to be the 14th different winner and chalk up his first career triumph at the track.

In the BRC 20-lap NASCAR Late Model feature Lou Egrie Sr. inherited the lead when Wayne Pfeil dropped out with mechanical problems and went on to capture his first win of the year to become the seventh different winner. The last time the two-time point champion had won was April 2015.

Mark Kemmerer added his name to the win list in the 25-lap NASCAR Sportsman feature for his first win of the year to become the division’s 12th different winner. He dedicated the win to fellow driver Derrick Smith’s father Dave.

All feature winners received monetary awards from T.P. Trailers and VP Racing Fuels providing they met the requirements along with the Dan’s Deli ½-way hoagie awards.

The night’s biggest winners were the newly crowned 2017 point champions.

Modified chauffeur Craig Von Dohren only won two features in the chase, but he still managed to record his 10th championship.

Chuck Schutz, a four-time Late Model feature winner garnered his ninth point title.

Opening night Sportsman feature winner Brian Hirthler went on to claim his first championship.

In the make-up Modified feature, Mark Kratz led for seven laps before Jeff Strunk hit the first turn yuke tire sending it onto the track bringing out the yellow. On the restart Butler charged to the head of the pack leaving Kratz, Kressley, Steve Swinehart and Umbenhauer battling for positions.

Lap after lap the battle for first ensued between Butler and Kressley with neither one giving up.

The caution was displayed after Kratz and Umbenhauer got hooked on the 17th lap. Umbenhauer broke free and continued, but Kratz stopped in turn two. The red was thrown the next try when a multi-car accident blocked the third turn. Butler and Kressley continued the duel, but now Frank Cozze and Umbenhauer were in the mix.

Kressley just took the lead on lap 29, but quickly slowed when the yellow light came on briefly, but quickly went out as Gular limped around the track. As a result Butler and Umbenhauer got by and Butler continued into the winner’s circle. After a turn of events, track management declared Butler and Kressley the winners following the error. Umbenhauer was third followed by Cozze and S. Swinehart.

The second Modified feature saw Mahaney take the lead from Mark Biehn on the second lap in search of a victory trailed by Biehn, Kratz and Kenny Gilmore.

Brett Gilmore brought out the yellow as he stopped in turn two on lap five. On the restart, Kenny Gilmore, who had overtaken second, made contact with Mahaney. Gilmore did a 360 without losing a position, but others in the back weren’t as fortunate and a multi-car tangle occurred. The top five behind Mahaney when racing went green again consisted of K. Gilmore, Cozze, Duane Howard and Von Dohren.

In no time Mahaney checked out increasing the distance each time he circled the 1/3-mile oval.

K. Gilmore’s fine run ended with four laps to go when he stopped in the second turn. This restart saw Ryan Watt in a challenging position.

On the 29th lap restart needed when Cozze broke with suspension problems, Strunk was once again in the first turn yuke tire. Also involved were Addison Meitzler and Danny Erb. Gular was sent to the pits for the incident. Mahaney left Watt chase him on the restart and succeeded in keeping all the competition behind.

Mahaney never faltered and was victorious followed by Watt, Von Dohren, Howard and Umbenhauer.

Heats were won by Mahaney, B. Gilmore, Strunk and Meitzler. Ron Seltmann Jr. and Butler won the consolation races.

Saturday, September 16 these same drivers plus a host of others will compete in the 47th running of the Freedom 76 in memory of promoter Bruce Rogers with $30,000 going to the winner in addition to other awards.

In the Late Model feature Wayne Pfeil’s misfortune was Egrie’s fortune when Pfeil pulled out of the race on the sixth lap when a red flag was needed as flames shot out of the headers of Schutz’s car putting him out of contention.

Pressuring Egrie on the restart were Bryon Sipe, Drew Weisser, Kyle Merkel, who started dead last and was advancing quickly and Steve Todorow.

Even though numerous yellows were needed, Egrie Sr. didn’t give up until he saw the checkered unfurled.

Andrew Kreis was the leader of the Sportsman feature for eight laps before Ryan Higgs, while running second hit the second turn tire and spun also collecting Jim Housworth. When racing went green again Kemmerer was the new leader and within no time opened up a comfortable lead.

The action for second through fifth was a heated one, between Kyle Lilick, Louden Reimert, Brad Arnold and Lex Shive.

Kemmerer never looked back and went on to score his second career win trailed by K. Lilick, Reimert, Arnold and Mike Lisowski.

Heats were won by Kreis, Housworth and Jesse Landis while Brian Hirthler took the consi.

The 47th Annual Freedom 76 Modified Classic in Honor of Bruce Rogers is set for Saturday, September 16th. The will pay $30,000 to the winner and is expected to attract many of the top names in dirt track Modified stock car racing. Action will get underway at 7 p.m.

The night before the Mid-Atlantic Sprint Series will be in action along with the Sportsman racing in the Freedom 38’er offering $1500 to the winner. Modifieds entered in the Freedom 76 will be allowed to participate in practice sessions. Adult admission is $12, youngsters 6 thru 11 pay just $5 and under 6 are admitted free. Advance tickets, $35 for adults, for the Freedom 76 will be available Friday night.

SHUEY WINS BRC LATE MODEL 30; BUCKWALTER WINS TP TRAILERS MODIFIEDS WHILE YOUNG AND SMITH TOPS IN SPORTSMAN FEATURES ON BRC NIGHT AT GRANDVIEW

BECHTELSVILLE, PA August 27, 2017 . . . The outcome of the 30-lap BRC NASCAR Late Model feature on Saturday night at Grandview Speedway came down to a photo finish between Brian Shuey and current point leader and defending champion Chuck Schutz. Shuey was declared the winner for his second win of the year in the event sponsored by Bernheisel Race Components. In order to qualify for the $15,000 in products and $40,000 in discount certificates, each competitor had to display the BRC decals on both sides of their car. Shuey was just glad he could hold off Schutz’s challenges when the pair races side-by-side because, “Schutz had the lane to take the lead away, but I just never gave up exclaimed the winded winner in victory lane. He commented he has had his share of ups and downs this season and luck just hasn’t been on his side.”

The T.P. Trailers 358 NASCAR Modified 30-lap feature also went down to the wire. Tim Buckwalter, who recently returned to the track behind the wheel of the Norm Saxton-owned No. 24, held off veteran campaigner Frank Cozze’s closing lap bids to claim his first win of the season and his second career win to become the 12th different winner in the division. Buckwalter thanked his owner, who Tim was actually directed to him through fellow driver Billy Pauch, and all his crew for their countless efforts.

Two new names were added to the books in the 25-lap NASCAR Sportsman features. Steve Young, driving the Marshall’s Home Comfort Services No. 187, narrowly beat out runner-up Jim Housworth by 0.068 second to record his first ever career victory. The event was the race rained out from the August 19 portion of the show.

The Sportsman feature from the regular segment was closer yet. In the photo finish win, sophomore racer Derrick Smith, piloting a 602 crate engine crossed the line 0.029 seconds ahead of defending point champion Jordan Henn. Smith, who didn’t expect to be in the winner’s circle had no idea that Henn was there until the end.

All feature winners received monetary awards from T.P. Trailers and product vouchers from VP Racing Fuel providing all necessary requirements were met.

Shuey, Buckwalter, Young and Andrew Kreis were the recipients of the Dan’s Deli ½-way hoagie bonuses.

The Late Model feature saw Shuey shoot past polesitter Lou Egrie Sr. to put the Scott Lee owned car at the head of the 17-car starting grid trailed by Egrie Sr., Bryon Sipe, Jordan Knepp and Steve Todorow.

In no time Shuey had a comfortable lead built up and by the sixth lap encountered slower-moving traffic.

The first and only caution was when Shawn Horning spun in the second turn on the 13th lap putting the field right on Shuey’s bumper. Shuey turned it up a bit on the restart since by this time Schutz, who started eighth, was in the runner-up spot giving Shuey no margin to error.

The former point champions were nip ‘n tuck as the pair put on a fierce side-by-side duel. Schutz would edge ahead slightly, but when the lap counted Shuey was the leader.

It was anyone’s guess as to what the outcome would be, but when the checkered unfurled Shuey was the one that pulled into the winner’s circle beating out Schutz by inches. Todorow was third followed by Egrie Sr. and Drew Weisser.

Bobby Gunther-Walsh quickly took the early lead at the onset of the T.P.Trailers Modified feature.

Brett Kressley, while running sixth, spun in the second turn and collected Jared Umbenhauer and Jeff Strunk ending the night for all three on the fourth lap caution. Gunther-Walsh held his pace when action resumed with Buckwalter pressuring him.

The lead changed on the sixth lap when Buckwalter motored into first leaving Gunther-Walsh, Mark Kratz, Steve Swinehart, Ryan Grim and John Willman in a five-car battle for second.

Five laps later Buckwalter had a commanding lead built up and it was now Swinehart in pursuit.

The field regrouped when Brian Krummel, a feature winner this year, spun in the first turn for the second and final caution. Buckwalter wasted no time moving out on the restart to maintain his spot.

With ten laps to go, 16th-place starter Cozze overtook second and used the lap cars to his advantage to close the gap and quickly catch Buckwalter.

As the laps wound down Cozze was getting closer and closer to Buckwalter.

Buckwalter was determined to keep Cozze behind him and he did just that. At the drop of the checkered he earned a hard-fought battle with Cozze, S. Swinehart, posting his best finish of the year; Willman and Doug Manmiller chasing his across.

Gunther-Walsh, S. Swinehart and Kratz won the heats. Danny Erb, returning for the first time since his health issues several months ago, won the consi.

In the rained out August 19th Sportsman feature, Andrew Kreis led three laps before Young took the outside lane off turn four and became the new leader.

While Young showed the way, Kenny Bock and Kreis diced for second with Ryan Higgs, Jack Butler and Kyle Lilick jockeying for the remaining positions.

Jack Butler overtook second on lap 13 to challenge Young, but his night ended when the engine left go nine laps later bringing out the yellow. Mike Lisowski, who had previously took over second had to pit since smoke was bellowing out his car. Their misfortune put Housworth in second and he made several attempts to pass Young the final remaining laps.

Housworth tried many moves to pass Young, but each one failed and Young went on to collect the win. Housworth had to settle for second followed by Bock, K. Lilick and Jordan Henn.

The second Sportsman feature saw Kreis once again take the early lead and he stayed glued to the bottom while action him was hot and heavy for the remaining spots between Smith, Bock, Louden Reimert and Dylan Swinehart.

A fourth turn tangle between Kyle Lilick, Housworth and Ryan Shupp brought out the yellow on lap 18. On this restart Smith charged to the front of the pack leaving Reimert, Henn and Ryan Lilick battle for second which gave Smith some breathing room.

Henn passed Reimert with two to go and was all over Smith pressuring him for first.

Smith never surrendered the lead and went on to narrowly claim a well-deserved win followed by Henn, Reimert, R. Lilick and Craig Whitmoyer.

Brad Grim won the August 19 consi.

Heat winners in the regular show were John McGovern, Smith and Bock. Lisowski won the consi.

Coming up on September 2nd is four division show of racing that will include the TP Trailers Modifieds, BRC Late Models, Sportsman and Blast from the Past Vintage racers. In addition the Modifieds will run in two 30-lap features including the rained out feature from August 19th. Again adults pay just $15 while youngsters 11 and under are admitted free.

VONDOHREN WINS PIONEER FORREST ROGERS MEMORIAL FOR THIRD YEAR IN A ROW AT GRANDVIEW SPEEDWAY; CHUCK SCHUTZ AND JOHN MCGOVERN ARE ALSO WINNERS

FREEDOM 76 WILL BE RUN IN MEMORY OF THE LATE BRUCE ROGERS AND PAY $30,000 TO WIN

BECHTELSVILLE, PA. AUGUST 6, 2017 – NASCAR 358 Modified point leader and defending champion Craig VonDohren scored a three-peat and became the only eight-time winner when he won the Forrest Rogers Memorial/Pioneer Pole Buildings 50-lap TP Trailers 358 NASCAR Modified feature for a $10,000 payday on Saturday night at Grandview Speedway in the races broadcast by RCN-TV, Allentown. The race is run in memory of the founder of the speedway.

During the course of the evening it was announced that the September 16th Freedom 76 Modified Classic, the biggest event of the season, would be run in memory of the late track promoter Bruce Rogers, who passed away in April, and will pay $30,000 to win. More details on this very special event will be released shortly.

VonDohren now joins Fred Rahmer, the ’82, ’83 and ’84 winner as the only driver at the 1/3-mile Berks Co. clay oval to win the prestigious event three straight times.

The defending and current point leader, who broke into the winner’s circle last week, didn’t have an easy time since he first had to battle side-by-side with Colt Harris several laps before he moved into first on the 31st lap and the he outran runner-up Mike Gular, who gave it his all several times, finishing second by a narrow 1.696 margin.

In victory lane VonDohren commented, “it was hard, flat-out racing and his crew worked diligently to repair the car after it got tore up in the heat race. The top was the place to be even though it was good on the bottom and I had to mix it up and run the middle while battling with Gular.”

The BRC NASCAR 20-lap Late Model feature was basically all current point leader Chuck Schutz as he ran away and hid since he led from the drop of the green until the wave of the checkered to win his fourth feature in the series.

John McGovern finally had a productive night in NASCAR Sportsman action as everything went in his favor. First he won his qualifying heat and then he held off the continuous challenges of runner-up Dylan Swinehart and third-place finisher Mike Lisowski once they caught him to win his first career ever 25-lap NASCAR Sportsman feature.

All feature winners received monetary awards from T.P. Trailers and also product certificates from VP Racing Fuels providing they met the necessary requirements. For finishing second in the Forrest Rogers Memorial race, Gular received a drum of VP fuel for finishing second.

Modified action saw Bobby Gunther-Walsh lead for two laps before the yellow came out when Addison Meitzler lost a tire and stopped in the fourth turn. Harris powered the Pony Express No. C7 into first on the restart trailed by Brett Kressley, Gunther-Walsh, Steve Swinehart and John Willman.

Coming through the pack from his 16th starting berth was VonDohren behind the wheel of his own Pioneer Pole Buildings/V&M Towing No. 1C picking the competition off one-one-one and at the conclusion of 13 laps he was third.

Brett Gilmore stopped in the bottom of the fourth turn with a flat tire bringing out the caution with 14 laps complete. Harris maintained his position when racing resumed, but there were some tense moments when Brett Gilmore ran the red pit light and came charging out in front of the pack and was racing with them.

Another hairy moment occurred for Harris was when Dan Waisempacher slowed in the fourth turn directly in front of Harris, who did make contact since he had nowhere to go for the 21st lap caution. The incident didn’t deter Harris and he was still first on the restart, but now VonDohren was second putting his bids in for another win.

The red had to be thrown after Ryan Grim, debuting a brand new car, barrel-rolled three times after getting into the third turn infield tire while battling for positions. He was towed back to the pits and after a quick pit stop returned only to go back to the pits. Harris was determined to stay in front, but by this time VonDohren and Gular were second and third making it a three-way battle for first with Kressley and Kevin Hirthler in pursuit.

After Harris and Von Dohren ran door to door for several laps swapping paint on occasion, VonDohren emerged as the new leader on the 31st lap.

The final yellow was on the 37th lap for Kressley sitting in the infield. Earlier he slid into the homestretch infield on the 33rd lap and what many assumed was a mechanical issue. Later it was realized he needed medical attention because the driveshaft broke and hit him in the leg. He limped back to the pits without help trying to walk it off.

The leader continued to be VonDohren with Gular sticking right with him making several bids to overtake him, but to no avail, but Gular still showed determination.

VonDohren shuffled it up a bit deciding which line to run to deter Gular and it must have worked because at the conclusion he was in victory lane followed by Gular, Frank Cozze, Jared Umbenhauer and Duane Howard, who started 14th, 11th, 18th and 20th respectively.

Heats were won by Steve Swinehart, Kyle Weiss, Joe Fanelli and John Willman. Mike Mahaney and Chris Esposito won the consolation races.

The Late Model feature basically had Schutz steal the show as even though there were numerous cautions giving everyone ample opportunity to pass him they couldn’t get the job done and he went on to chalk up his 48th career win chased across the line by Wayne Pfeil, Bryon Sipe, last week’s feature winner; Lou Egrie Sr., returning after missing from action with motor issues and Steve Todorow.

The onset of the Sportsman feature saw McGovern take the early lead with pressure from Steve Young, Derrick Smith, Dean Bachman and Kenny Bock.

On the seventh lap Dylan Swinehart, already a two-time feature winner this year and running fourth, went three-wide on the outside – made the move stick and was now second and took chase after McGovern.

It didn’t take long for Swinehart and Mike Lisowski, mow second and third, to reel McGovern in and make it a three-way battle for first.

Swinehart made several attempts to pass McGovern, but at the same time he had to be concerned that Lisowski wouldn’t get by the two of them.

McGovern kept the fierce competition behind him and went on to capture a well-deserved first win followed closely by Swinehart, Lisowski, Mark McGovern and Jordan Henn, the defending point champion who had a fine run in his second outing after returning from the homestretch accident earlier in the season.

Bock, McGovern and Young won the heats. The consi went to Brad Arnold.

Coming up on August 12th is WNPV Radio Night featuring NASCAR TP Trailers 358 Modifieds, BRC Late Models and Sportsman stock cars with racing starting at 7:30 p.m. Adult admission is just $15 while youngsters 11 and under are admitted free.

VONDOHREN, SIPE AND BRAD GRIM WIN NASCAR FEATURES AT GRANDVIEW SATURDAY

PIONEER FORREST ROGERS MEMORIAL OFFERS $10,000 TO WIN AUGUST 5

BECHTELSVILLE, PA. July 29, 2017 – Craig VonDohren, the nine-time and defending Grandview Speedway Modified point champion, hadn’t been to victory lane at the 1/3-mile banked clay oval since August 20, 2016. Saturday night, VonDohren, who regained the point lead by 14 points over 10 time champion Jeff Strunk, passed Kenny Gilmore on the 13th lap restart of the TP Trailers 358 NASCAR Modified 30-lap feature and went on to park his self-owned, Keith Harring/V&M Towing sponsored No. 1C mount in the winner’s circle for his first triumph of the year and also became the 11th different winner.

Two weeks ago in the BRC NASCAR 20-lap Late Model feature Bryon Sipe was one lap shy of capturing his first win of the year. This time the Shoemakersville speedster made a bold move to pass leader Brian Shuey in lap traffic on the 14th lap and didn’t make any driver errors to score his season first win since May 28, 2016 to become the sixth different winner.

Brad Grim claimed his first career victory in the 25-lap NASCAR Sportsman feature on July 8, 2017 and two races later he put the Mike Stringer Collision No. 23 in victory lane for a second time.

All feature winners received monetary awards from TP Trailers and also product certificates from VP Racing Fuels providing they met the necessary requirements.

Joe “Geezer” Fanelli set the pace of the Modified feature for seven laps before Kenny Gilmore, who recently became the new driver of the Dennis Bailey-owned No. 81 replacing John Willman, took over the top spot.

While Gilmore showed the way the battle behind him for the remaining positions was hot and heavy between Fanelli, Von Dohren, Duane Howard and Frank Cozze.

VonDohren, who started 12th and Cozze, eighth-place starter, advanced to second and third respectively on lap ten to pressure Gilmore.

A three-car, fourth turn tangle brought out the yellow on the 12th lap. It didn’t take Von Dohren long on the restart to shoot to the outside and overtake Gilmore for first.

Gilmore hung right there with Von Dohren for several laps trying to recapture the lead, but soon Von Dohren pulled away from his fellow competitors.

No more restarts were needed once Von Dohren gained control to allow anyone the chance to overtake him and when the checkered unfurled it was his 101st Saturday night career win. Finishing second was Gilmore trailed by Cozze, Howard and Tim Buckwalter, who posted his best finish of the year since returning a few weeks ago.

Heats were won by Colt Harris, Addison Meitzler and Fanelli. Kevin Hirthler won the consi.

Before any laps could be completed in the Late Model feature something broke on the front end of Kyle Merkel’s car causing him to spin coming off turn two and out of competition. Once green flag action resumed Shuey was the early pacesetter with Sipe, Steve Todorow, Danny Snyder and Wayne Pfeil in pursuit.

Sipe, Todorow and Snyder had their own battle for second which allowed Shuey some breathing room.

Lapped traffic enabled the cars behind Shuey to close in on him and attempt to take the lead away.

On the 14th lap with a lapped car, Shuey and Sipe three-wide, Sipe shot past both of them and into the lead.

Sipe was determined not to make any mistakes and keep everyone behind him. He did just that and captured his second career win followed by Shuey, Snyder, Todorow and Chuck Schutz.

In the Sportsman feature polesitter Steve Young set the pace for two laps before Louden Reimert and Craig Whitmoyer tangled on the backstretch for the yellow. Whitmoyer could continue, but Reimert had to be towed back to the pits. On the restart Young, Derrick Smith and Joe Funk III went three-wide and Funk III emerged as the new leader.

Jim Housworth and Grim diced four the runner-up position several laps before Grim overtook him on the seventh lap to take chase after Funk III.

Andy Clemmer brought out the final yellow on the 13th lap when he slowed his pace with a flat tire in the fourth turn. When action resumed Grim took over first with Mark Kemmerer, Funk III, Housworth and Brian Hirthler, the current point leader, battling for the remaining positions.

Grim kept everyone behind him and continued until he became the eighth different winner trailed by Kemmerer, for his best finish, Funk III, Housworth and Whitmoyer, who was on the move after the early lap incident.

The heats were won by Kenny Bock, Mike Lisowski and Young while Caleb Ross won the consi.

Defending Sportsman point champion Jordan Henn, who was injured in the horrendous homestretch crash on April 29, was back in competition and garnered a seventh place finish.

Next Saturday Grandview presents one of its most prestigious events, the annual Pioneer Pole Buildings Forrest Rogers Memorial. This will be a 50-lapper for the TP Trailers NASCAR 358 Modifieds paying at least $10,000 to the winner. Also included in the night of excitement will be the BRC Late Models and Sportsman.
