KERRY KRATZ KOULD BE KONTENDER FOR GRANDVIEW TITLE KASH

BECHTELSVILLE, PA April 6, 2001 . . . Talk about the NASCAR
Modified championship battle at Grandview Speedway this
season and most will want to talk about former champions
Terry Meitzler, Craig VonDohren and Jeff Strunk. However, one
of the dark horse candidates to be in the thick of the battle
for the lucrative track title (which earns cash from two
separate point funds) and NASCAR regional money is Kerry
Kratz.
The veteran racing talent has been a regular at the
Berks County clay oval since 1990. He has been to victory
lane and he has been "in the battle for the title" but the
championship has eluded him. He finished a close third to
champion Jeff Strunk and challenger Terry Meitzler last
season. In fact he has finished third three seasons in a row.
Kratz would like to see those two and the rest of the NASCAR
Modified racers chase him for the title this year.
The Don Schaeffer owned team, with sponsorship from
Hatfield Quality Meats and Steve's Corner Deli
(Gilbertsville) along with Derstine Sandblasting, RS Machine,
J&L Speed Equipment and Litech Motorsports, have put together
a powerful team with one goal, winning the title.
Kratz, who resides in Bechtelsville with wife Trina and
three year old son Aaron, will join a long list of other top
dirt stock car racers in action at Grandview Speedway on
Saturday night (April 14) with the NASCAR Modifieds. Battling
Kratz for a top spot will be Jeff Strunk, Meitzler,
VonDohren, Tom Mayberry, Chip Slocum, Glenn Strunk, Donny
Erb, Dennis Bailey, Kenny Gilmore and a host of others.
Racing action starts at 5 p.m.
Joining the NASCAR Modifieds on Saturday night will be
the NASCAR Late Models lead by four time and defending
champion Dean Stoudt. And during the month of April the PA
Sportsman will be part of the tripleheader shows.
Grandview Speedway, one of the most popular short track
operations in the area, will switch to their regular Saturday
night schedule on May 5. Featured will be the NASCAR
Modifieds and Late Models with a 7:30 p.m. starting time.
Grandview Speedways is located on Passmore Road, just
off Route 100, in Bechtelsville, 10 miles north of Pottstown,
PA. For race information telephone 610.754.7688 or visit
