BECHTELSVILLE PA – Brett Kressley of Orefield outdueled Craig Von Dohren of Oley during the closing laps of the 30-lap T.P. Trailer NASCAR Modified feature Saturday night (April 30, 2022), to score his first victory of the still-young 2022 season and his 18th career win at Grandview Speedway.
The 30-lap T.P. Trailer NASCAR Modified
Kressley had a full straight-away lead on Von Dohren when a caution on lap 24 set up the late race dramatics. Von Dohren was able to get past Kressley to lead lap 25, but Kressley was able to repass Von Dohren on lap 27 to regain the lead and race on to the win. He was followed by Tim Buckwalter of Douglassville, Doug Manmiller of Shoemakersville, Duane Howard of Oley , and Dave Dissinger of Mohrsville.
Von Dohren had the misfortune of having a left rear tire go flat in the final couple of laps. He managed to hold on and finish in 12th position.
The 25-lap T.P. Truck Equipment Sportsman
Parker Guldin of Fleetwood took advantage of a late race-caution flag, which wiped out a huge lead that Kyle Smith, also of Fleetwood had enjoyed. Guldin grabbed the lead on the final restart, with seven laps remaining, to score his first victory since August 2019 in the 25-lap T.P. Truck Equipment Sportsman feature event.
Following Guldin across the stripe in the Sportsman feature were Smith, Brian Hirthler of Green Lane, Dylan Hoch of Mertztown, and Jimmy Leiby of West Milford NJ. Leiby rallied back from a roll-over on lap two to gain his Top-Five finish.
Both winners received bonus money from T.P. Trailers and Truck Equipment, as they had the proper decals on their cars. The race program was part of the NASCAR Advance Auto Parts Weekly Racing Series.
