Racing Promotion Monthly has honored Bruce Rogers, promoter of the NASCAR sanctioned Grandview Speedway, with the Eastern Region Promoter of the Year award.
The one-third-mile, banked clay Grandview Speedway is coming off its 50th anniversary season, which was topped by the highly successful $50,000 to win BPG Racing Freedom 76 race, won by nine-time track champion Jeff Strunk.
The track in Bechtelsville, Pennsylvania, was built by Forrest Rogers, Bruce’s father, and opened for its first racing event back in August 1963. It has been continually operated by the Rogers family ever since.
Much attention has also been brought to the Grandview oval by the Bob Miller/Bruce Rogers-promoted Thunder on the Hill Series, which offers fans the opportunity to see a variety of different types of racing action.
Racing for 2013 will kick off with the annual free-to-the-public practice session for all divisions of racing on Saturday, March 30, at noon.
Officially the chase for the lucrative NASCAR Whelen All American Series point titles (modifieds, late models and sportsman) will get the green flag on April 6 at 7 p.m.
Fans and racers can keep up with information on the 2013 activities being planned at Grandview Speedway at www.grandviewspeedway.com or by calling 610/754-7688.
