Kressley Scores Third Modified Victory at Grandview

            Brett "The Threat" Kressley captured his third T.P. Trailers NASCAR 30-lap Modified feature victory by outdistancing runner-up Duane Howard on July 1 at at Grandview Speedway in activities sponsored by Bechtelsville Car Wash.

            In the 25-lap NASCAR Sportsman feature Ryan Beltz scored his second point career win. Tim Tanner Jr. was the victor in the 25-lap Delaware Auto Exchange Mid-Atlantic Sprint Series Sprint feature. Brett Peters finished first in the 15-lap feature in the Blast From The Past Vintage division.

            In the Modified race, Jordan Henn returned to the ranks after being forced out of competition a few weeks ago and wasted no time grabbing the early lead. John Willman, Ray Swinehart, Kenny Gilmore and Ron Kline diced for the remaining positions behind the rookie. Willman and Gilmore battled for four laps for second before Willman broke free and set sail after Henn and by lap 11 he put his bids in for the lead.

            By the Dan's Deli ½- hoagie mark, a three-way battle for the top spot ensured between Henn, Willman and Kressley.

            Kressley, who started 12th, made a bold move coming out of the fourth turn and got around Willman and Henn for first. Mark Kratz slowed his pace in turn two to bring out the 21st lap caution.

           Kressley held his pace on the restart with the order behind him comprised of Willman, Howard, Jared Umbenhauer and Mike Gular, with all of them trying their best to advance.

            Howard moved by Willman on the 22nd lap and set his signs on Kressley, who had a commanding lead built up and posted his sixth career victory.

            No more restarts were needed once Kressley gained control to allow anyone an opportunity to overtake him and at the wave of the checkered it was career win number six. Chasing him across the line were Howard, Umbenhauer, Willman, who finally had a change of luck for his season best finish and Gular.

            The Sportsman feature saw Kenny Bock take the early lead and set the pace for four laps until Beltz slipped underneath him as the pair came off turn four to become the new leader. Kyle Lilick brought out the first yellow on the ninth lap when he stopped along the homestretch infield apron. On the restart Bock got the edge on Beltz and was back in first. After two tries to get the 11th lap in in the books Beltz managed to regain the lead.
