11TH ANNUAL DIRTcar TRAFFIC JAM SET FOR GRANDVIEW WEDNESDAY, JULY 16....
COMPETITORS & FANS TO ENJOY A GREAT NIGHT PLUS KENNY BRIGHTBILL TO DRIVE BPG TEAM CAR #4
The 11th Annual Big Block Modified TRAFFIC JAM will return to the
Grandview Speedway on Wedneday night, July 16th as the NAPA Auto Parts
Thunder on the Hill Racing Series continues in 2008. Always a crowd
pleaser, the 100 Lap TRAFFIC JAM provides non-stop, always on the edge
of your seat excitement. It all gets underway at 7:30 PM with time
trials followed by qualifying events that will lead up to the 100 lap,
$6,000 to win feature event. The drivers will be shooting for some
extra pocket money as lap twenty will be worth $200 to the leader,
courtesy of Fitzpatrick Lentz & Budda, P.C., a Lehigh Valley law firm
that will be celebrating their twentieth year in business. Also,
COMDIAL Telephone Communications will post $200 for the driver who sets
fast time of the night. Of special interest especially to the local
Berks County race fans, is that Kenny Brightbill of Sinking Spring, PA
will be in the field. Brightbill, best known for his success at the
Reading Fairgrounds, carried his success to tracks like Flemington,
Bridgeport, East Windsor, New Egypt, Nazareth, Middletown, Delaware
International and was a past winner at Super DIRT Week in Syracuse,
NY, the most prestigious race in the country for modified stock cars.
Brightbill will be at Grandview on Wednesday night, July 16, but not in
his familiar 19. Instead, Brightbill will be driving a power-house team
car for Chad Sinon/BPG Racing.
"We chose Kenny because he is one of the true legends in our sport and
it would not be right for him not to be at Grandview", commented Chad
Sinon of Blue Bell, PA. Sinon fields only the finest equipment and
although he'll be pulling for his weekly driver Duane Howard of Oley,
PA, he would like nothing more then to see Brightbill park his BPG
Modified in Grandview's victory lane.
The Wednesday night, July 16 DIRTcar TRAFFIC JAM is also part of the Fan
Fun Nights, coordinated between Grandview, New Egypt and Bridgeport
Speedway. Fans will receive a $2 discount on an adult admission ticket
if they are wearing a Thunder on the Hill, Grandview, Bridgeport or New
Egypt Speedway t-shirt, so represent your favorite track and come on out
to Grandview. Just to make the fans feel even more at home, Nick Leach
the announcer at New Egypt and Bill Sasser from Bridgeport will join
Jeff Alhum at Grandview to entice the fans into an all out cheering
There will be contests, fan give away items, the Inside/Out Promotion
plus one lucky fan will get to waive the first green flag of the night.
FanFest will also take place, inviting all children accompanied by an
adult to be on the homestretch for the call of the starting line-up for
the 11th Annual Big Block Modified TRAFFIC JAM.
