USAC East Coast Wingless Sprints, Modifieds & Sportsman This Saturday at Grandview Speedway

A big triple-header program of stock car and sprint car racing action is planned for this Saturday night at Grandview Speedway, all part of the NASCAR Advance Auto Parts Weekly Series.

This Saturday’s big triple division race program features the only visit of the season from the Rapid Tire USAC East Coast Wingless Sprint Cars joining the regular T.P. Trailer NASCAR Modified and T.P. Truck Equipment NASCAR Sportsman program, making for a huge night of competition. The show will include qualifying events for all classes leading up to a 30-lap T.P. Trailer Modified feature and 25-lap features for the T.P. Truck Equipment Sportsman and USAC East Coast Sprints.

Saturday’s program will be the first in a series of race events recorded and produced by ATVN-TV. The Astound TV Network (ATVN) will be recording the race events this Saturday, with the race event broadcast to be shown on a tape-delayed basis. 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.

ATVN airs on channel 4/1004 HD (Lehigh Valley) and channel 8 /608 HD in Delaware County. Additional air dates and times of the races can be found at astound.com/ATVN. The 2024 season will be the 22nd year for ATVN at Grandview Speedway, and once again Randy Kane and Mike Feltenberger will handle the announcing on the broadcast.

This Saturday night prior to the racing program will be the Low Down and Dirty meet and greet hosted once again by Whippy and Jennifer Umbenhauer. The drivers scheduled to participate include Modified driver Chris Esposito, along with Sportsman driver Brett Grim, and USAC driver Bobby Butler.

The pre-race Meet and Greet is held in the main gate area from 4-5 pm and is a great time for fans to meet the drivers up close, collect some autographs, take photos, and talk racing with their favorite drivers before the night’s program gets underway.

The Rapid Tire USAC East Coast Sprint Cars presented by Capitol Renegade travel into Grandview Speedway this weekend with a tremendous point battle already underway following their first two races of the year.

Joey Amantea is the point leader including a feature win to his credit, just five points ahead of Alex Bright, and twelve points ahead of Carmen Perigo who sits third. Just thirteen points behind in fourth is Steven Drevicki, followed by Bobby Butler in fifth who trails the leader by just sixteen points.

Winning the only other feature so far this season for USAC East was Briggs Danner who currently holds down sixth in the current standings and is the defending USAC East Coast series Champion.

Following three weeks of competition this season there have been three different winners in T.P. Trailer NASCAR Modified action, with Mike Mahaney, Brett Kressley and Louden Reimert all reaching victory lane.

Jeff Strunk leads the point chase after three events and will be among three dozen drivers looking to score their first win of the year this weekend. Only the weather has been a repeat winner, with the last two Saturday’s falling to the weather.

The T.P. Truck Equipment Sportsman division has been just as competitive, also seeing three different drivers going to the winner’s circle. Defending champion Logan Watt has scored a win along with two first time career winners in Gavyn Krupp and Colton Perry.
