"We are coming off another successful season of Saturday night stock car racing with the T.H. Properties Freedom 76 attracting a strong field of racers and one of the largest fan turnouts in track history. Our weekly NASCAR Modified and Exide ShorTrack Late Model shows drew some very strong crowds for a number of events during the season. We did lose more than a half-dozen shows because of rain," said Ernie Saxton, public relations and marketing director at the 1/3rd mile banked clay oval. "We can see 2001 being a banner season for Grandview and short track racing in general. More and more fans are returning to the excitement of local racing and Grandview Speedway continues to offer one of the most exciting stock car racing programs to be found anywhere." The speedway offers event sponsorships at very reasonable rates and even has some early season shows that are available at discounted prices. In addition there are billboard advertising opportunities (a full billboard can be had for three seasons at the cost of two) and there is advertising in the weekly track magazine, the Grandview Groove, which had several sellouts this past season. In addition arrangements can be made for product samplings, giveaways, corporate picnic area festivities, and much more.
