WET WEATHER FORCES GRANDVIEW SPEEDWAY TO CANCEL SATURDAY NIGHT RACING ACTION
BECHTELSVILLE, PA July 30, 2016 . . . Once again wet weather forced the cancellation of NASCAR stock car racing at Grandview Speedway on Saturday night. The planned WNPV-1440AM sponsored night will be rescheduled.
The rainout will tighten up the point battles going on in all three divisions of racing as there will now be just five nights of point racing remaining in the season for the T.P.Trailers NASCAR 358 Modifieds, BRC Late Models and Sportsman stock cars.

The Late Models will receive over $10,000 in product and gift certificates from a variety of participating manufacturers. All Late Model racers attempting to participate will receive giveaways each valued at approximately $250. In addition to the Bernheisel promotion Geiswite Creations is presenting a Back To School Giveway Night with school age kids having a chance to win some great backpacks. First 100 school-agers through the main gate will receive a folder with notepad and pencils. Anyone interested in donating toward the special School Giveaways can contact Jennifer Geiswite at 484.955.4914.
