NEETS ENDURO CARS AND VINTAGE RACERS TAKE CENTER STAGE AT GRANDVIEW SPEEDWAY THIS SUNDAY…
September 21, 2012, Bechtelsville PA – On September 2nd, Mother Nature decided the afternoon’s fate at Grandview Speedway. The NEETS Enduro “Junk-a-Thon” was postponed due to rain and it is rescheduled for this upcoming Sunday September 23rd. The most recent weather forecasts are predicting a beautiful afternoon at the 1/3 mile dirt oval, in contrast to the weather pattern we witnessed at the Sept. 2nd event. Added to the card is a double feature program for the Blast From the Past Vintage Stock Cars.
Just three point races remain in the Scott Dunn Auto Service NEETS Dirt Tour. Championships will be decided during the course of the next three races held on September 23rd, September 30th, and the huge “Mutha” of all Enduros on October 14th.
Competitor registration for Sunday’s NEETS Junk-a-Thon is still open, as interested teams who were not in attendance on Sept. 2nd are asked to visit the tour’s official website of www.neetsracing.com for more details on this event. The Big Cars will compete in the “Salvage” 100-lap Enduro while the Small Cars battle in the “Hogwash” 100-lap endurance race. A 25-lap Ladies Race will be held along with two 15-lap main events for the Vintage Cars.
In the Big Car division, four different drivers have emerged victorious in five events held. Chuck Eckert (Schuylkill Haven PA) has won the last two out of three NEETS Enduros at Grandview Speedway. Other winners include: Drew Ott (Schwenksville PA), Pat Hires (Levittown PA) and Chris Reichert (Orwigsburg PA).
Eckert is currently leading the points race with just three events remaining. Keep in mind that the season ending “Mutha” of all Enduros on October 14th is a double points paying event. Reichert, always a consistent competitor on the tour, is a mere seven markers behind Eckert in the standings. Well established veteran Phil Levering (Parkerford PA) occupies the third position in points followed Bob Wink (Palm PA) and Ott.
A similar story exists in the Small Car division where Pate Hires is the only repeat winner out of five events. Defending champion Brian Smith (Washington NJ) won the opener back in April. Second generation racer Mike Dunn (Yardville NJ) picked up his first career win this year, and Steve Wilson (Green Lane PA) captured his fifth career Grandview victory at the most recent event held in August.
Dave Bentley Jr. (Downingtown PA), the 2009 NEETS champion, is currently up front in this year’s battle. Art Kulik (Bensalem PA) and Ken Wallace (Wyncote PA) are locked in a tie for the runner-up spot. They trail Bentley Jr. by 13 points. Pete Wharton (Bally PA) is just 17 markers behind the leader in the fourth position while Dave Bentley Sr. (Woodlyn PA) rounds out the top five.
Linsey Rummel (Parkerford PA) has one victory in the Ladies Division and is the current points leader over two-time event winner Jen Hausman (Bechtelsville PA), Deb Angstadt (Reading PA), Terez Kuronya (Boyertown PA) and Jessica Dunn (Yardville NJ) round out the top five. The Ladies Division title will actually be decided on the following week Sunday Sept. 30 in a double points paying 50-lap race.
This Sunday Sept. 23rd at Grandview Speedway, pit gates open at 8AM, while grandstand gates will open at 12:00PM. Racing begins promptly at 1:00PM. Adult general admission to the grandstands is only $7. The weather might be cooling off but the season is heating up as the NEETS tour will be in competition at Grandview for the next three out of four weeks. Starting time for each event is 1:00PM.
