From Bob Miller

Bechtelsville, PA — (July 24, 2013) — It could very well be one of the most prestigious events of the 2013 dirt track racing season and it all takes place at the Grandview Speedway on Tuesday night, July 30.

The Mach 1  410 Sprints and the Pioneer Pole Buildings 16th Annual TRAFFIC JAM for modifieds will team-up for this spectacular, first time ever double-header.     The Mach 1 Chassis 410 sprint feature will offer $5,000 to win the 35 lap main event as the modifieds chase a $5,000 first place prize for the sixty lap  TRAFFIC JAM contest.   410 sprint stars Alan Krimes and Brent Marks are the two latest entries joining the talents of Fred Rahmer, Greg Hodnett, Lance Dewease, Brian Montieth and Mark Smith.   The modified roster is impressive as well including defending event winner Danny Johnson, Ryan Godown, Bobby Varin, Stewart Friesen, Mike  Mahaney, Duane Howard, Jeff Strunk,  Kevin Hirthler, Craig VonDohren and Mike Gular just to name a few.

The program will open with time trials for the 410 sprints followed by heat race qualifying for both the sprints and modifieds.    A “B” Main will be offered for the sprints as the modifieds round out their starting field with a consolation event.   This all leads up to the 35 lap Mach 1 Chassis  sprint feature followed by the PPB 16th Annual Traffic Jam  for Modifieds  going 60 laps.
