BECHTELSVILLE, PA – The tradition continues. The annual free-to-the-public practice session will kick off the 58th consecutive season of stock car racing at Grandview Speedway on Saturday, March 28th. That practice, which starts at noon, is open to all forms of racing competition.
Once again the one-third-mile banked clay track will be operated by the Rogers family and will again carry a NASCAR sanction.
The first racing event of the new season will be the 3rd Annual Bruce Rogers Memorial offering $7,500 to the winner of the 50-lapper that has the Small Block Modifieds going up against the Big Block talents. The race is set for Saturday, April 4th and is run in memory of the man who was instrumental in building the track and making it the huge success it has become. The first annual Rogers Memorial was won by NASCAR Camping World Series and dirt Modified standout Stewart Friesen while the 2019 race went to another top Modified talent, Matt Sheppard.
And the biggest race of the season, the “Granddaddy of Major Modified Races”, the 50th annual Freedom 76, which paid more than $25,000 to winner Duane Howard back in September is on the schedule for Saturday, September 19th with a September 26th rain date.
A complete 2020 schedule is being finalized and will be released shortly.
