BECHTELSVILLE, PA. – Grandview Speedway looks to return to action this Saturday, July 23 with another action-packed program of stock car racing under the NASCAR Advance Auto Parts Weekly Racing Series banner.
After suffering an unexpected rainstorm just before warm-ups last Saturday, causing the triple-header program of T.P. Trailer Modifieds, T.P. Truck Equipment Sportsman, and URC Sprint Cars to be rained out, management, race teams and fans alike are ready to get back to action.
The Saturday night rainout was the sixth point race of the current season to be lost to the weather at Grandview Speedway, while the United Racing Club Sprint Cars suffered their seventh postponement of the season.
Grandview will be busy this weekend hosting two events, as the Outlaw Racing Series Enduro and Outlaw Racing Series Vintage Racers will be in action on Friday, July 22 starting at 7 pm. Grandstand admission will be $10 for adults. This event was added to the schedule to make up for an earlier postponement.
The next racing program will be the T.P. Trailer NASCAR Modifieds and T.P. Truck Equipment NASCAR Sportsman joined by the Outlaw Racing Series Vintage Cars in a three-division program this Saturday, July 23 starting at 7:30 pm. The program will include qualifying events leading to the 30-lap T.P. Trailer Modified feature, the 25-lap T.P. Truck Equipment Sportsman main, and the Vintage Racers will run a feature event only.
Pit gates will open at 4 pm. with grandstand gates opening at 5:30 pm. warm-ups will be starting at 6:15 pm. Adult grandstand admission is $18, and children ages 5 and under are admitted free of charge.
The night of racing will be sponsored by T.P. Trailers and Truck Equipment, the sponsor of both the Modified and Sportsman divisions all season long. They provide bonus money each week throughout the season to all the feature race winners in the form of $300 to the T.P. Trailer Modifieds and $200 to the T.P. Truck Equipment Sportsman.
T.P. Trailers & Truck Equipment is where you will find Truck Bodies, Trailers, Snow & Ice Removal Equipment, Outside Storage Solutions, Parts, Repairs, Custom Fabrication and more.

Prior to the racing action will be the weekly Meet and Greet. This week’s drivers include Sportsman drivers Kenny Bock and Nate Horn along with Vintage drivers Todd Lapp, Tori Hall, and Joe Medaglia. The Meet and Greet is held in the main gate area starting at 5 pm. and is a great time for fans to meet the drivers up close and collect some autographs.
