BECHTELSVILLE, PA JULY 3, 2019 . . . . . The fans asked for it and here it is!
The NOS Energy Drink USAC National Midget Series will be part of the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series Tuesday night, July 30 with the first running of the Ken Brenn Midget Masters 30 joined by the NASCAR 358 Modifieds in a big double-header at Grandview Speedway. The midgets have a long and rich history at Grandview and many say, the Grandview Speedway in Bechtelsville, PA is the perfect track for the midgets.
This special night is being dedicated to Ken Brenn, an individual with a reputation rich in midget history and someone who once promoted midget racing at Grandview.
