BECHTELSVILLE, PA APRIL 8, 2015 . . . When there is extra money up for grabs the racers will be on top of their game to make sure they have an opportunity to take home the big bucks at Grandview Speedway. This Saturday, April 11th, the NASCAR 358 Modifieds will be battling for in excess of $3,000 to win the 35-lap main event. Actual racing starts at 7 p.m.
Duane Howard, coming off an impressive opening night victory, will be looking to pad his wallet with a second win at the Berks County clay oval. In addition to the $3,000 first place money posted by the track there will be a $250 bonus from T.P. Trailers of Limerick and a $150 VP Racing Fuels product award for the winner provided they meet the requirements of the special award sponsors.
Howard will have plenty of competition as Craig VonDohren tries to move up a position from his second place finish of last Saturday. Meme DeSantis was strong in the opener as he unveiled his new Norm Hansell mount to grab third. Others who performed well on opening night were Frank Cozze, Mike Kellner, Mike Gular, Doug Manmiller and others and they will all be back to try for a win in the rich 35-lap feature. Defending track champion Jeff Strunk was forced out of action late in the opening night action costing him a top finishing spot. He will be looking to change that this Saturday night.
