NOS ENERGY DRINK USAC NATIONAL MIDGET SERIES. . . .
BECHTELSVILLE, PA JULY 1, 2020 . . . . . The fans asked for it and the USAC Midgets are returning to the Hill!
The NOS Energy Drink USAC National Midget Series will be part of the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series Tuesday night, August 4 with the 2nd Annual Ken Brenn Midget Masters 30 joined by the NASCAR 358 Modifieds in a big double-header at Grandview Speedway. The midgets have a long and rich history at Grandview and many say, the Grandview Speedway in Bechtelsville, PA is the perfect track for the midgets. Last years’ event proved that as Chris Windom took the win over team mate Tyler “Sunshine” Courtney in a thriller.
This special night is being dedicated to Ken Brenn, an individual with a reputation rich in midget history and someone who once promoted midget racing at Grandview. Ken Brenn is an absolute “class act” and has been part of the local racing fabric for many years, enjoying much success as a modified car owner and a prior promoter of the Bridgeport Speedway. Some other surprises are being arranged as we honor Ken who is planning to be at this event and drop the first green flag of the night!
