GRANDVIEW SPEEDWAY MODIFIED CHAMPION TO SEE SHIP SINK, VOLCANO ERUPT, BAJA COUNTRY AND HOLLYWOOD STARS

BECHTELSVILLE, PA MARCH 14, 1999 . . . The NASCAR Modified champion stock car driver at Grandview Speedway will have something special to look for at the end of the season. As in past years the management of the one-third-mile, clay banked oval will give the champion and a guest a Champion's Trip. This year the trip will include a four night cruise on Carnival Cruise Lines "Holiday" with ports of call including Catalina Island - playground of Hollywood stars and Ensenada on the rugged Mexican Baja.

And when the cruise is complete the champion will head to Las Vegas to spend three and 1/2 nights at the plush Treasure Island Hotel. A pirate ship sinks in front of the hotel on a regular basis and just as regular is the Volcano erupting next door at the Mirage Hotel. Just a small part of the fun and excitement of being in Las Vegas.

The Champion's Getaway is one of many perks offered the NASCAR Modified champion at Grandview Speedway. In addition there is plenty of cash. Last year's modified champion Ray Swinehart enjoyed nine days in Maui for winning the title and earned various point fund awards totalling in excess of $32,000. This year's Modified title winner could do as well or better.

Grandview Speedway kicks off their season on Saturday, March 27, 12 noon, with a free-to-the-public practice session. Included will be NASCAR Modifieds, Sportsman and Late Models along with a variety of other types of racing vehicles. It is a last chance for racers to "test and tune" before the 1999 season gets started.

The season officially gets the green flag at 5 p.m. on Saturday, April 3. A tripleheader show will get the 37th consecutive season of stock car racing started. Included will be NASCAR modifieds, late models and sportsmen. Topping off the late afternoon action will be a 37-lap feature for the modified stock cars.

Information on racing at Grandview Speedway, telephone 610.754.7688 or visit their website: www.grandviewspeedway.com. For information on how you can join the champion and be part of the Champion's Getaway telephone Marilyn Saxton at 215.752.2392. The recent Champion's Trip to Maui had the largest group ever to participate and half of the reservations for the 1999 trip are already spoken for.

For the second consecutive year Salvage Transport Services of Coplay, PA will sponsor the SALVAGE TRANSPORT SERVICES HARD CHARGER AWARD. A $25.00 award will go to the driver that improves the most positions in the late model feature race at Grandview, from official starting spot to official finishing position. And at the end of the season the competitor in late models that improves the most positions for the season will receive $100. It will be mandatory that late model racers seeking the STS Hard Charger Award carry an STS decal on the race car in a visible location.

Grandview Speedway is located on Passmore Road, just off Route 100, 10 miles north of Pottstown, in Bechtelsville, PA.
