AMERICAN RACER ADDS SUPPORT, BOB HILBERT SPORTSWEAR POSTS HARDCHARGER CASH, TV SKED IS RELEASED
BECHTELSVILLE, PA March 27, 2019 . . . The Second annual VP
Racing Fuels Bruce Rogers Memorial Money Maker set for Saturday, April
6th at Grandview Speedway rewards the winner with at least $7,500 and
that is quite an incentive. Every racer that makes the starting field
earns $1,000 or more. And American Racer tires has added $1,000 while
Bob Hilbert Sportswear has added $500. However the honor of winning the
50-lap Small Block/Big Block Modified race could very well mean more to
the winner than the big bucks. With the addition of legendary racer
Billy Pauch Sr. to the list of entries interest is running high.
Rogers, the man who built the
one-third-mile, banked clay track along with his father, was one of the
most respected auto racing promoters in the business. And he was very
well respected by the competitors. During his 55 years of running the
popular auto racing facility he was able to bring it to national
notoriety. It is one of the most successful short track racing
operations in nation and has continued under the operation of members of
the Rogers family since he passed away.
Many well-known racing talents,
in addition to Pauch Sr., have expressed interest in being a part of
this event which will kick off the 57th consecutive season of stock car
