Astound Broadband and Grandview Speedway Announce Six Selected Saturday Nights to Receive TV Coverage for 2024, Season Opener Bruce Rogers Memorial April 6

Grandview Speedway along with Astound Broadband are releasing several dates that will see select Saturday Night race programs televised during the 2024 racing season.

Astound Broadband has finalized their schedule of television dates for racing at Grandview Speedway. The Astound TV Network (ATVN) will once again be returning for their 22nd season at Grandview to record the race events on six selected Saturday nights, and then show the broadcasts on a tape-delayed basis. The professionals at ATVN have been covering local auto racing since the early 1970’s, sending them into their 42nd year of auto racing coverage.

Astound TV Network (ATVN) will once again produce the race events and broadcast those races on a tape-delayed basis, with each program this year being split into two separate shows. The heat races will be a complete program shown on the following Tuesday night at 7:30 pm. The features will air the following Friday evening at 7 pm. with further replays to follow.

The six selected Saturday night events, which all include the T.P. Trailer NASCAR Modifieds and T.P. Truck Equipment NASCAR Sportsman, are on May 11 (plus the USAC East Sprints), May 25, June 22, July 13 (Sportsman Firecracker 40), July 27, and the final one will be the 54th annual Forrest Rogers Memorial for Modifieds on August 10.

As has been the case for many seasons, Mike Feltenberger and Randy Kane will be returning as the announcing team for all ATVN broadcasts.

Grandview Speedway management welcomes ATVN back for another season, as participating race teams enjoy having the race events shown on ATVN, since it is yet another way to get their race team sponsors additional and expanded exposure.

The new season of racing will be the 62nd consecutive at Grandview Speedway, and will begin with a double-header program of Outlaw Racing Series Enduro and Outlaw Racing Series Vintage action on Saturday, March 23 starting at 12 Noon, carrying a rain date of Sunday, March 24.

The following week on Saturday, March 30, will be the annual free-to-the-public practice session open to all divisions starting at 12 noon.

The official Opening Night will be on Saturday, April 6, with the running of the 7th annual VP Racing Fuels Bruce Rogers Memorial Money Maker for Big Block/Small Block Modifieds. As was the case last season, this event will be the first point race of the new season and pay the winner a handsome $7500 for 50-laps of feature racing, along with an amazing $1000 to take the green in the feature. The race winner will also be a guaranteed starter for the 2024 Freedom 76 in September.

If needed, April 13 is the rain date for the opener. A complete show of NASCAR 602 Sportsman is also on the Opening Night card participating in their first points-paying event of the season.

Race time for Opening Night on April 6 is 6 pm. All fans and race teams are reminded that all Saturday night events in the month of April will be starting at 6 pm, before reverting back to the regular 7:30 pm starting time on May 4.

Grandview racers and crew members are reminded that they will be able to get a jump on renewing their NASCAR memberships for the 2024 season by applying online. Everyone can begin to apply for their NASCAR membership license at this time, and avoid the lines on Opening Day by going online at https://license.nascar.com/.
