BECHTELSVILLE, PA March 30, 2018 . . . One of the most talked
about and most anticipated race events to be presented at Grandview
Speedway is set to happen when the First annual VP Racing Fuels Bruce
Rogers Memorial Money Maker Classic takes place on Saturday, April 7.
The starting time is set for 7PM.
The race, a 50-lapper on the
one-third-mile, banked clay oval, will feature the Small Block Modifieds
going up against Big Block Modifieds with the winner walking off with
at least $7,500.
Both Duane Howard and Jeff Strunk,
winners of many events and championships at the Bechtelsville clay
track, like the fact that the race is paying $7,500 to win. And they
like that every racer that makes the main event will go home with at
least $1,000. However all that is secondary to them as they welcome the
opportunity to win a race run in memory of a man they had so much
respect for. The beautiful specially created trophy that goes to the
winner will be treasured by both drivers as well as just about any other
driver that takes part in the big event and is able to win.
The Rogers Memorial is expected
to attract quite a few outsiders as they seek the big bucks for the win
and the prestige of winning the Classic named in memory of the late
track owner. But of course the weekly regulars joining Howard and Strunk
