CHAMPIONS WILL BE DECIDED AT GRANDVIEW SPEEDWAY ON SATURDAY, BPG RACING FREEDOM 76 SET FOR SEPT. 12
 
Bechtelsville, PA September 3, 2009 . . . The lucrative track championships in the NASCAR 358 modified and late model divisions will be decided at Grandview Speedway on Saturday, September 5th when Green Lane Wm. Penn/Four Star Lettering sponsors the tripleheader card of racing starting at 7:30 p.m. Joining the 358 modifieds and late models will be the Sidewinders (micro sprints with 1000 cc engines) making their first ever Saturday night appearance at Grandview.
 Jeff Strunk, a seven time track champion, holds a 284 point edge over challenger Duane Howard in the battle for the $10,000 plus modified title. Craig VonDohren, a six time champion, is a distant third in the standings and was eliminated from contention for the championship with the rainout of the August 29th show. It should be noted that Strunk has no provisionals left to take advantage of so if he is unable to qualify for the feature race the title could very well be lost.
 In the late models Randy Stoudt has a 59 point edge over Brian Shuey and 145 points over Ron Kline going into the final two nights of point racing. This is a battle that will go right down to the final checkered flag in the 20-lap main event.
 Fans will have the opportunity to win free tickets to the NASCAR Sprint Cup race set for Dover International Speedway on Sunday, September 27th. And there will be other giveaways.
 The BPG Racing Pick 3 Contest will be worth $1050 and one lucky fan will win the use of a sponsor booth and tickets for seven friends for the Freedom 76.
 Advance tickets will be available for the BPG Racing Freedom 76, the biggest event of the season, which is scheduled for Saturday, September 12th with a 7 p.m. starting time. The winner of this event goes home with $20,000 plus lap money in this the 39th annual edition of the dirt track racing classic.
 Fans will have the opportunity to see some of the best known names in local short track dirt racing as they try for a win in this prestigious race.
 Adult admission is $25, $10 for youngsters 6 thru 11 and under six are admitted FREE.
 The September 12th activities will also include the LineX of Lehigh Valley Freedom Fest which starts at 1 p.m. and includes a variety of activities for fans including a dunk tank, driver interviews, autograph sessions and more.  The Freedom Fest proceeds will go to the Camelot House in Allentown, PA. Pete Knappenberger, the victory lane announcer at Grandview, is putting the Freedom Fest together.
