Brett Kressley, the current NASCAR T.P.Trailers 358 Modified division point leader, has two Modified wins to his credit and will be looking to win number three when T.P.Trailers & Truck Maintenance of Limerick present a tripleheader card of stock car racing excitement on Saturday night. In addition to the Modifieds there will be racing action for the Late Models and Sportsman stock cars. At least 12 events is being planned starting at 7:30 p.m.

In third is Jeff Strunk with 1084 followed by Craig Von Dohren at 1073 and Duane Howard at 1003. There have been 43 drivers earn points in the four nights of NASCAR Modified point racing run so far this season.
In the Sportsman division Brad Grim is on top with 894 followed by Brad Brightbill with 838 points. Also topping 800 points in third is young Louden Reimert with 815 counters. More than three dozen racers have earned Sportsman points.

Saturday night event sponsor T.P. Trailers & Truck Maintenance has been a longtime supporter of racing at Grandview and as they do each Saturday night they will be paying bonus bucks to the feature winner in each division.
The big question on this night, will there be new winners or repeat winners? Last season there were close to three dozen feature winners. Can racers top that in 2018?
Fans have the opportunity to meet a couple of the weekly racers in the Low Down & Dirty Internet Radio Meet and Greet taking place near the main gate starting at 5 p.m. just 30-minutes before the ticket windows open. Featured this Saturday will be Sportsman racer Jesse Landis and Grandview veteran Modified racer Ron Kline.
As is the normal for a Saturday night regular tripleheader show the adult admission is $15 while youngsters under 12 are admitted free.
The Sportsman racers will be in the Spotlight on Saturday, June 23rd when a 40-lap feature will top their segment of the tripleheader. And an event that is sure to be popular with fans and racers who are pet lovers is the Safety Net Sanctuary Raffle Fundraiser that will be a huge part of the night. The care forever home for animals located on 11 acres in Fleetwood, PA gives a home to dogs, cats and farm animals. No animals are euthanized. Fans are invited to bring dog and cat food to be placed in special containers and take part in the raffle that will have winners walking off with gift baskets, race team items and area business gift certificates.
