MIKE GULAR ENTERS USAC NON-WING JESSE HOCKETT CLASSIC TUESDAY NIGHT JUNE 5  AT GRANDVIEW

 

Local Grandview Speedway favorite Mike Gular of  Green Lane, PA will take on racing career opportunity on Tuesday night, June 5  when he climbs behind the wheel a non-wing 410 sprint car.  

 

Gular and sprint car owner Steve Petry of Telford, PA are planning to compete in the Tuesday night, June 5 AMSOIL USAC Non-Wing Eastern Storm event at Grandview.     “I am really stoked about this and I just can’t wait to stand on the gas” commented a very excited Gular.   A well accomplished 358 modified driver at one of the toughest tracks in the country, Gular will now try his hand in a 410 sprint car, non-wing never-the-less.    The Petry owned sprinter is red and will carry the #8.       For Gular, he has long wanted to drive a sprint car and now gets the chance, to race against nationally known stars  including Bryan Clauson,  who was in the starting field of this year’s Indianapolis 500.  Clauson of Carmichael, CA will be on the “hill” Tuesday night chasing the $6,000 payday in the Jesse Hockett 40 lap classic.

 

USAC  drivers expected to take part include  Jon Stanbrough of Avon, Indiana who  was one of the first to enter the Eastern Storm along with  Bobby East of Brownsburg, IN who is the defending winner of the Jesse Hockett Classic at the Grandview Speedway.   Chris Windom of Canton, IL, Casey Shuman of Tempe, AZ, Hunter Schuerenberg of Sikeston, MO, Justin Grant of Ione, CA, Levi Jones of Olney, IL, Jerry Coons Jr of Tucson, AZ and Robert Ballou of Rocklin, CA are a few of more then twenty drivers that have already pre-entered.

 

The ARDC non-wing midgets will also be on the program that gets underway at 7:30 PM.     The USAC non-wing sprints will complete in time trials, qualifying heat race events and the 40 lap Jesse Hockett Classic as ARDC will duke it out in a series of qualifying events and a 20 lap feature.
