BECHTELSVILLE, PA. – There will be plenty of action for everyone this week at Grandview Speedway.
The week begins on Tuesday, June 27 with a visit by the powerful 410 Sprint Cars of the Pennsylvania Posse in the 33rd running of Pa Sprint Car Speedweek. The Speedweek event at Grandview is titled the Hodnett Cup and salutes the late driver who is one of the all-time winningest 410 Sprint drivers in Grandview history and will be sponsored by HVAC Distributors Partners for Success. Tuesday night’s show will also include the 358 Modifieds, for another outstanding two-division race program.
The 410 Sprints will be chasing a $10,000 winner’s prize for the 35-lap feature race along with the Hodnett Cup, a former Greg Hodnett trophy that carries the name of each season’s winner and is present for each season’s race event.
The 358 Modifieds will be racing for a $3000 top prize for their 30-lap main event, which also carries a Pioneer Pole Buildings bonus of $2000 if the driver is a first time Thunder on the Hill winner, making for a possible $5000 top prize.
Adult grandstand admission is $30, children ages 6-11 are $10, while kids ages 5 and under are admitted free of charge. Pit admission is $40, and a license is not required.
On Tuesday, pit gates open at 2:30 pm. with advance ticket holders entering the grandstand at 4:30 pm. General admission grandstand gates open at 5 pm. with racing at 7:30 pm.
This Saturday night will be another NASCAR Advance Auto Parts Weekly Series double-header featuring the T.P. Trailer Modifieds and T.P. Truck Equipment Sportsman. The race program will consist of qualifying races for both divisions leading into the 30-lap T.P. Trailer Modified feature and 25-lap T.P. Truck Equipment Sportsman main event.
Saturday’s program will also be a special night for the younger fans, as there will be a kid’s money scramble. The kids will be divided into three age groups and sent scrambling to pick up as many scattered coins as they can in a certain amount of time! Kids are reminded to arrive early on Saturday as the first 100 youngsters through the gates will receive a gift bag!

There will be a pre-race Meet and Greet with the guys from Low Down and Dirty on Saturday. The featured drivers will be on hand with their cars in the main gate area starting at 5 pm.

This past Saturday, June 24 the race program was lost to the weather. With the postponement, the 90’s night promotion has been rescheduled to Saturday, July 22 and we’ve added something to 90’s night. We are inviting any 1990’s era drivers to attend on July 22 and participate in an autograph session. If interested, please contact Tina Rogers at [email protected].
