No qualifying of any kind, just five awesome feature events in one
night.  On the program will be the Rolling Thunder Legends, 600cc
Modifieds, 600cc Sprints plus the URC Sprints and NASCAR 358 Modifieds
each competing in a 25 lap feature event.  Local Berks County favorite
Kenny Brightbill of Shillington, PA is the latest entry for the modified
feature line-up.

The features only format makes for some great racing as the very best
drivers of each of the five division will be in the starting line-up.
More then one-hundred race cars are expected to over-flow the Grandview
Speedway pit area in chase of the $30,000 total payoff.

Of special interest in the 600cc Sprints as they make their one and only
appearance of 2008 to Grandview.  The field is made-up of drivers who
received special invites based off their outstanding performance so far
this season.  Some of talent in the line-up is Heath Hehnly of Manheim,
PA, Ryan Smith of Kunkletown, PA, Bill Thomas of Media, PA,  Brian
Carber of Pipersville, PA, Stewart Carmichael of Newark, DE,  Shaun
Brandel of Pottstown, PA,  Robbie Kendall of Rising Sun, MD, Kevin
Steele of Orwigsburg, PA and modified driver Doug Manmiller will be in
the field.

Expect a great night of features only racing.  The first of five feature
events will take the green flag at 7:30 PM.  General admission tickets
will go on sale at 5:30 PM.  Adult admission price is $20, Children 6-11
are just $5 and children under the age of six will be admitted for free.
The pit fee is $25 and a license is not required.

If you would like to take part in the popular Inside/Out Promotion, just

race fans to watch warm-ups from the fourth turn infield.  Race fans

that will take place on the homestretch just prior to the start of the
Modified feature event.
