NOT FIT FOR MAN OR BEAST AT GRANDVIEW, RAIN AND COLD POSTPONE
THE SEASON OPENER

BECHTELSVILLE, PA APRIL 7, 2001 . . . It was not fit for man
or beast to be at Grandview Speedway on Saturday. Dark
clouds, rain, cold weather and heavy rains headed to the
area, forced promoter Bruce Rogers to postpone the Saturday
racing action that had been planned to open the 2001 racing
season.
Rogers and his crew had an early start on getting the
track ready but it all went for nothing as the "bad weather"
set in and washed out all their efforts.
The season opener, 39th consecutive season of
professional stock car racing, has been reset for Saturday,
April 14, 5 p.m. Included will be a 39-lap feature, paying
$3,000 to win, for the NASCAR Modifieds. And there will be
racing action for the PA Sportsman and Late Model stock cars.
In fact there will be tripleheader cards of racing for
the stock cars also on April 21 and 28.
Heading up the action for each Saturday are such top
talents as Kerry Kratz, Jeff Strunk, Glenn Strunk, Tom
Mayberry, Terry Meitzler and a host of others.
Fans will have an opportunity to win a ride in the new
two-seat modified stock car that Ray Swinehart and his J&L
Speed Equipment staff built special just for the fans. One of
the top modified talents will give two lucky winners rides
around the one-third-mile, clay banked oval.
When the season opener is presented on Saturday, April
14, 5 p.m., it is expected that there will be more than 110
race cars in the competition area to entertain the fans.
Grandview Speedway is located on Passmore Road, just off
Route 100 in Bechtelsville, PA, 10 miles north of Pottstown.
