Von Dohren Thunders To Another Grandview Triumph

BECHTELSVILLE, Pa. – Craig Von Dohren picked up the win in the 30-lap 358 Modified portion Thursday’s Thunder on the Hill event at Grandview Speedway, scoring the $3,000 top prize.

“The thing about Grandview is that you never know how close someone is, so you always have to be prepared and stay up on the wheel,” Von Dohren said.

Alex Yankowski started on the pole and led the first two circuits with pressure from two of Grandview’s winningest drivers, Von Dohren and Duane Howard.

Von Dohren powered passed Yankowski exiting turn two and charged to a sizable lead, with Howard moving into the second position.

The only challenge came when Von Dohren battled through traffic at the midway point of the event, but a caution with five laps to go offered up an open track and the ability to coast onto victory.

Howard finished in the second position, Yankowski in third, Jeff Strunk in fourth and Doug Manmiller in fifth.

The finish:

1. Craig Von Dohren  2. Duane Howard  3. Alex Yankowski  4. Jeff Strunk  5. Doug Manmiller  6. Dillon Steuer  7. Brett Kressley  8. Kevin Hirthler  9. Dylan Swinehart  10. Justin Grim  11.
