BECHTELSVILLE, PA August 16, 2003 . . . A late afternoon rain which followed an early afternoon thunder and lightning storm forced event organizer Bruce Rogers to throw in the towel and cancel the Saturday night Rossi Welding/Arctic Cat Night of NASCAR Modifieds and Late Model stock car racing. This was the second rainout in a row and ninth of the 2003 season at Grandview Speedway.
Event organizer Bruce Rogers has announced that the point chase, normally finalized on the first Saturday of September, will now continue through until September 20th. And the Saturday, August 23rd show will have twin 20-lap features for the NASCAR Modifieds in an effort to meet the NASCAR requirement to run at least 18 features for the track's racers to be included in the NASCAR Dodge Regional title chases.
Current NASCAR Modified point leader Jeff Strunk, a two time track champion, is also leading in the chase for the NASCAR Dodge Weekly Racing Series New England Regional title chase.
"With all the rainouts we have had we are short a couple of events. We want to give our racers every opportunity to win the New England Regional NASCAR Dodge Weekly Series title worth $45,000 so we are adding some dates to our point chase and we are changing next Saturday to a twin 20-lap feature program for the modifieds." said Rogers.
The point chase continues this Saturday, August 23rd, with the running of Waste Management Night featuring the NASCAR Modifieds and Late Models. At least 13 events of stock car racing will be presented with the twin 20-lap features for modifieds topping the program. The late models will run in a 20 lapper. Racing starts at 7:30 p.m.
Rossi Welding Night will now be part of the September 20th program. Grandview Speedway is located on Passmore Road, just off Route 100, in Bechtelsville, PA, 10 miles north of Pottstown. For race information telephone 610.754.7688 or visit their website at www.grandviewspeedway.com.
