BECHTELSVILLE, PA August 25, 2014 . . . The third and final Open Wheel Spectacular of the season is on tap at the Grandview Speedway this Sunday evening as the Hilborn Tri-State Race Saver Sprint Cars (TSRS)  and the wingless midgets of the American Racing Drivers Club (ARDC) return to the high banks of the Grandview Speedway for another double header of open cockpit competition.

              Only one driver - Adam Carberry of  Bensalem, PA  - has been able to claim repeat wins in TSRS action this season.  Carberry was the race winner of the first Open Wheel Spectacular in June and recently picked up his second win of 2014 at the Bridgeport Speedway.  Karl Freyer, Mike Haggenbottom, Kyle Reinhardt, Dave Brown, Kyle Purks and the winner of the July Open Wheel Spectacular, Jeff Geiges - are all looking to make a return trip to Victory Lane.  Carberry raced Tim Tanner for the win in June.  Geiges won a three way battle when he took the lead from Haggenbottom with two laps to go.  Purks, Haggenbottom and Geiges swapped the positions throughout the final six laps in a race that came right down to the checkered flag at the end of twenty-five laps. 

              Steve Buckwalter has won both of the ARDC Midget Sunday night feature events.  However, it has been the Collegeville, PA driver, "The Phenom" Alex Bright who has been on a streak in recent ARDC action.  Bright leads the midget field with five wins, including wins in four of the last five ARDC events.  Steve Buckwalter has three wins while Steven Drevicki continues to lead the points in ARDC action with his pair of wins.  PJ Gargiulo and Tim Buckwalter each have one win a piece this season. 

              Both feature events promise twenty-five laps of open wheel action from the green to the checkered and feature the top performers from a series of qualifying events for both divisions of competition.

             Fans will have a chance to meet with several competitors before the racing action gets underway on Sunday.  The team from Low, Down and Dirty internet radio will present a Meet & Greet to begin at five o'clock near the entrance to the grandstand.  Eddie Wagnner and his #70 and Stephanie Stevens and her #20 will be on hand to represent TSRS while 2013 ARDC Champion, Trevor Kobylarz  and the R/T Racing #1 and Danny Stratton with the Steward #33 will be on hand to represent ARDC.  These drivers will pose for pictures, sign autographs and be available to answer questions before they head back to the pits to prepare for the night's racing action.

              Racing will get the green flag at 7:30 p.m. Adult admission is just $15 while youngsters 6 through 12 pay $5 and kids under 6 are admitted free.

             It's the night before the Labor Day Holiday and a great time to come out and experience the action that everyone is talking about - the Open Wheel Spectacular at the Grandview Speedway.

              Filling out the Labor Day weekend at Grandview is the Saturday night tripleheader sponsored by Bernheisel Racing Components and will see the BRC Late Models run in a special 30-lap feature with more than $5,000 worth of special products being shared by all Late Model racers that carry the BRC decals on both sides of the car. The NASCAR 358 Modifieds and Sportsman will also be in action. Just two point events remain in the season before the huge Freedom 76 Classic takes place on Saturday, September 13 and that one pays $25,000 to win and features the best dirt track modified racing talents in the area.

              The Saturday night action gets the green at 7:30 p.m. with adults admitted for just $15 while youngsters 12 and under are admitted free.
