AFTER A THOROUGH REVIEW THE JUNE 26TH MODIFIED FEATURE IS DECLARED A TIE BETWEEN BRETT KRESSLEY AND CRAIG VON DOHREN
SATURDAY’S FIRECRACKER 40 WILL HAVE THE T.P. TRUCK EQUIPMENT SPORTSMAN IN THE SPOTLIGHT
SATURDAY ACTION WILL BE AVAILABLE VIA STREAMING ON DTD (DIRT TRACK DIGEST)
BECHTELSVILLE, PA June 30, 2021 . . . In a statement from Grandview Speedway general manager Tina Rogers a tie for first spot in the June 26 T.P.Trailers NASCAR Modified feature has been announced. “I spoke with both Brett and Craig. I explained the situation with what the scorers saw and what the transponder read. After further review and being in contact with MyLaps Sports timing, they assured me it is possible for the loop and timing system to detect 2 cars with different transponders even if they cross the line at the same time. However, Brett Kressley's transponder was not detected by the transponder system, although the hand scorers felt he was ahead. Since the finish was so very close, and you need both scorers and a transponder system to properly score an event, the track management has decided the fairest thing to do with this close of a finish would be to call it an even finish, and award Brett and Craig the win. They will both receive the full points for a win. Brett and Craig were understanding of the situation and agreed upon management decisions. We would like to thank both Brett and Craig for their professionalism through this process.”
It took Kenny Gilmore six years to get back to victory lane at Grandview Speedway. After winning the Sportsman feature last Saturday he is looking to get a second straight win for the season, earn the big bucks and move closer to the T.P.Truck Equipment Sportsman championship as a result of being able to claim the top spot in the Firecracker 40 on Saturday night. Big bucks are on the line with $2,000 going to the winner.
Defending T.P. Truck Equipment Sportsman champion Brian Hirthler will be ready to challenge Gilmore as will Cole Stangle, Kyle Lilick, Dylan Hoch and a host of others including some visitors being attracted by the increased purse.
