REMEMBERING FORREST ROGERS WITH MEMORIAL MODIFIED RACE PAYING $10,000 TO WIN AT GRANDVIEW SPEEDWAY
BECHTELSVILLE, PA August 2, 2015…One of the richest events of the season for T.P.Trailers NASCAR 358 Modified stock cars is set for Saturday, August 8, at Grandview Speedway. The race remembers the man who had the idea, put together the plan, and built the one-third-mile, banked clay speedway. The Rogers family led by Forrest’s son Bruce, has kept the track operating as one of the most successful NASCAR weekly short track racing facilities in the nation for 53 years.
The 50-lap Modified classic, sponsored by Pioneer Pole Buildings, will reward the winner with $10,000 in cash and a strong field of racing talent is expected to be on hand to try, through qualifying events, to make it into the starting field. Heading up the action for the Modifieds will be point leader Craig VonDohren and challengers Duane Howard, Doug Manmiller and Jeff Strunk. However there are several talents such as Ray Swinehart, Kevin Hirthler, Tim Buckwalter, Danny Erb, Meme DeSantis and others that will be looking for a win in the rich classic.
Last year the big money went to New Yorker Danny Johnson who was a surprise entry. Who knows who we will see show up to challenge the regulars for the big bucks.
