The Midgets have a long and rich history at Grandview, and many say, the Grandview Speedway in Bechtelsville, PA is the perfect track to run these race cars. The winningest driver in the Midgets at Grandview is Morgantown, PA’s Leigh Earnshaw, with 22 wins. Earnshaw is expected to be on hand for the Ken Brenn Midget Masters to honor this respected car owner.
This special night is dedicated to Ken Brenn, an individual with a reputation rich in midget history and someone who once promoted midget racing at Grandview. Ken Brenn is an absolute “class act” and has been part of the local racing fabric for many years, enjoying much success as a modified car owner and a former promoter of the Bridgeport Speedway. Ken plans on attending this special event in his honor.
The Tuesday, August 3 event at Grandview Speedway opens the five race Eastern Swing of the NOS Energy Drink USAC National Midget Speed Week. Track gates at Grandview will open at 5 PM with race time set for 7:30 PM.
Time trials and qualifying events will lead up to the Ken Brenn Midget Masters 30-lap feature event paying $4,000 to the winner.
The 358 Modifieds will play an equally important part of this event with qualifying and a 30 lap feature that will pay $3,500 to the winner and possibly $5,000 to a first time Thunder on the Hill winner. Brett Kressley, Jeff Strunk, Duane Howard, Craig VonDohren, Rick Laubach, Doug Manmiller, Kevin Hirthler and Kyle Weiss are expected modified entries.
