TIM BUCKWALTER DOING DOUBLE DUTY AT GRANDVIEW SPEEDWAY SATURDAY NIGHT
BECHTELSVILLE, PA May 16, 2019 . . . When the tripleheader
auto racing action gets the green flag this Saturday night at Grandview
Speedway local talent Tim Buckwalter will be doing double duty as he
races in the T.P.Trailers NASCAR 358 Modifieds and the Rapid Tire United
States Auto Club East Coast Wingless Sprint Cars.
The Douglassville, PA racing
talent has been a winner at Grandview in the NASCAR Modifieds and, in
addition, has been a two time champion at Kutztown’s Action Track USA
and a champion with the American Racing Drivers Club.
The veteran racer will be
wheeling a sprinter owned by Norristown’s Bill Gallagher and wrenched by
multi-time United Racing Club champion Curt Michael. “It’s a good car.
One of the best 360 Sprint cars in the area. It is a big opportunity to
work with Curt,” said Buckwalter. “I’m excited to see how we do.”
This will be a first time
appearance for the USAC East Coast Sprints at Grandview and a stellar
field of racers is expected.
Buckwalter will also be going
up against some outstanding driving talents in the Modifieds, something
he is familiar with as he is a Saturday night regular. Ten time NASCAR
track champion Craig Von Dohren is the current point leader and already
has two feature wins to his credit this season.
