MAYBERRY, TEETS AND DISSINGER WIN SATURDAY NIGHT FEATURES
BECHTELSVILLE, PA APRIL 17, 1999 . . . It was a repeat of the season opener for Tom Mayberry and Jeff Teets at Grandview Speedway on Saturday night. On a night better suited for eskimos, Mayberry, a former track champion, wheeled the Mike Kelly owned, A&T Chevrolet/Golden Corral Restaurant sponsored entry to victory. The win, the second of the season for Mayberry, the first coming in the season opener, came in the 30-lap NASCAR Winston Racing Series Modified feature. In the companion feature for NASCAR Late Models Jeff Teets, who also won on opening night, drove his Harry's U- Pull It Auto Parts entry to victory in the 20-lap main event. And in the PA Sportsman 15-lap feature Dave Dissinger drove his Oak Hill Farms mount to his second straight feature win. Ken Lindaberry set the pace at the start of the 30-lap modified feature with Dennis Bailey getting in front of the pack on the second circuit of the one-third-mile, banked clay oval. The first caution came on the 16th lap when John Willman and Kenny Gruber tangled. On the restart Bailey and Tom Mayberry "kissed" in the second turn, both got a little sideways, and Mayberry grabbed the front spot. At 20-laps Mayberry had a comfortable lead and went on to win the feature with Bailey and his Berks Products sponsored mount following close behind. For his efforts in winning his 22nd career feature at Grandview Speedway the Sellersville, PA racer earned $2,200. Dennis Bailey (Kutztown) finished second while Terry Meitzler (Kutztown) finished third. Kerry Kratz (Bechtelsville) was fourth followed by Kevin Hartnett (Perkasie). The 20-lap feature for Late Models had Kyle Pensinger in front at the drop of the green. Casey Ebright, away from the sport for a couple of seasons, showed he had not lost the touch and took charge on the second lap. On the seventh circuit Ebright spun while leading and Jeff Teets, who had been charging up through the field, took the top spot. Once in front Teets had his hands full holding off Dean Stoudt to win the feature event, his second of the season. The Coplay racer was just a few feet in front of Stoudt (East Greenville). Third place was earned by Rick Todorow (Quakertown) followed by Junior Grebe (Boyertown) and Sam Schlosberg (Pottstown). And it was Dave Dissinger (Mohrsville) taking the top spot at the drop of the green flag and leading all 15 laps to get his second win of the season with the PA Sportsman. Ryan Beltz earned an impressive second place finish while Tom Umbenhauer put on an exciting display of high groove racing to finish third. Again more than 100 race cars filled the competition area on a night that saw a little rain, bone chilling cold and high winds. Qualifying heat wins for the NASCAR modifieds went to Bill Gensler, Jon Kellner, Tom Mayberry, Dennis Bailey and Terry Meitzler. The consolation races were won by John Willman, Craig VonDohren and Jeff Strunk. The Cash Dash worth $335 went to Jon Kellner. Preliminary qualifying events for the late models were won by Kyle Pensinger, Jeff Teets and Junior Grebe while the consolation race went to Randy Stoudt. And in the heat races for PA Sportsman the victories were earned by Dissinger and Greg Wadsworth. NASCAR Winston Racing Series Modifieds, Late Models and PA Sportsman return to Grandview Speedway on Saturday, April 24 at 5 p.m. At least 13 events of racing make up the show.
