SUNDAY NIGHT RACING RETURNS TO THE GRANDVIEW SPEEDWAY
On Sunday night, May 4th, an old tradition will return to the high banks of the Grandview Speedway when the first of four doubleheader shows are offered featuring the Hilborn Tri-State Race Saver Sprint Cars and the wingless warriors of the American Racing Drivers Club Midgets.
For the midgets of ARDC, it will be a return to a tradition when for nearly fifteen years, midgets raced weekly at Grandview on Sunday nights, beginning in the late 60s and extending into the early 80s. With ARDC celebrating their 75th Anniversary this season, the timing couldn’t be better for a return to the high banks of the Grandview Speedway. TSRS Sprint Cars made their first appearance at Grandview last season which led to the introduction to this new series for the 2014 season.
When the Grandview Speedway opens its gates for its 2014 season opener this Saturday night, April 5th, race fans will have an opportunity to meet two of the headliners from the upcoming Sunday night schedule. Mike Haggenbottom and Trevor Kobylarz, both 2014 Champions, will be on hand to greet fans prior to the night’s racing events.
Haggenbottom, the Hilborn TSRS 2014 Champion, will have his #24 on display. Haggenbottom had three wins on his way to the TSRS Championship while driving a car owned by his brother, John. The brothers captured back to back championships in 2013-14.
Kobylarz will have his RT Racing #1 on display. Kobylarz earned four victories en route to the 2014 ARDC Championship. The second generation racer from Birdsboro, PA picked up wins at Susquehanna, Potomac, Bedford and the Grandview Speedway.
Both drivers will be on hand in the first turn pavilion area to meet and talk to fans prior to the season opener on Saturday night at Grandview. Driver interviews will be conducted by Low, Down and Dirty of http://www.blogtalkradio.com/. Season schedules will be available for both ARDC and TSRS for the coming season.
