BLUE BELL, PA September 11, 2012 . . . 2011 Penn Can Speedway champion Kevin Hartnett has signed on to drive a third car being entered by Blue Bell businessman Chad Sinon in the huge BPG Racing Freedom 76 race at Grandview Speedway on Saturday, September 15th.
Hartnett, a feature winner at Penn Can this season fell short in his effort for a second straight title, is a former regular competitor at Grandview so he is quite aware of the test that is ahead of him as he tries for the $50,000 first place offering plus a large chunk of the lap sponsorship money.
The veteran driver is looking to be back racing as a regular at Grandview next season as he is moving from his Central Pennsylvania home to the Boyertown area soon.
Hartnett is joining Grandview Speedway track champion Duane Howard and Bridgeport Speedway regular Ryan Watt as members of the Chad Sinon/BPG Racing entries.
Howard had an outstanding season at Grandview winning nine feature races on his way to the NASCAR Whelen All American Series 358 Modified title and he is the defending race champion.
Watt has been an outstanding competitor at the South Jersey dirt oval and a consistent feature winner over the years.
The powerhouse team should have a good shot at taking home some of the big money, more than $85,000, being paid out on Saturday night as part of the BPG Racing Freedom 76.
The 42nd annual classic will get the green flag at 7 p.m.
Grandview Speedway is located on Passmore Road, just off Route 100, in Bechtelsville, PA, 10 miles north of Pottstown. For information telephone 610.754.7688 or check in at www.grandviewspeedway.com for race, weather and lodging information.
