Von Dohren Continues to Lead NASCAR Modified Points at Grandview

BECHTELSVILLE, PA – So you want to talk about competitive racing? Well it is certainly happening at Grandview Speedway. In the primary division of NASCAR stock car racing at the one-third-mile, banked clay track, the TP Trailers 358 Modifieds, there has been six different feature winners in six Saturday nights of racing. Craig VonDohren, the defending champion, leads Jeff Strunk by just six points in the point battle and neither driver had visited victory lane until this past Saturday when 10-time track champion Strunk edged out Mike Kellner for the feature win.

Brian Hirthler leads the NASCAR Sportsman standings and has managed to win one feature while in the BRC Late Models defending champion Chuck Schutz leads the standings but has yet to visit victory lane.

Stock car racing action returns to Grandview Speedway on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. when Whelen Engineering, a major supporter of NASCAR, presents the tripleheader night of racing excitement. Included will be the TP Trailers NASCAR 358 Modifieds, BRC Late Models and Sportsman racing. Spectator gates open at 5:30 p.m.
