Godown Dominates Grandview Modified Field

BECHTELSVILLE, Pa. – Ryan Godown dominated the NASCAR 358 Modified feature held in support of Tuesday’s Pennsylvania Sprint Car Speedweek stop at Grandview Speedway.

In doing so, Godown – a two-time Thunder on the Hill winner – picked up his first Grandview victory since 2018.

By the luck of the draw, Godown started second and took the lead on the initial circuit around the Bechtelsville oval.

With Godown leading, all eyes were on the battle for second, with Brett Kressley and Duane Howard battling back-and-forth, while Jeff Strunk moved into fourth from a ninth-place starting position and then moved into second two circuits later.

The only caution of the program flew on lap 28 for Blaine Bracelin, but that didn’t stop Godown from sailing to victory and collecting the $3,500 winner’s share.

Jeff Strunk finished in second, Duane Howard crossed third, Brett Kressley was fourth, and Craig VonDohren finished fifth.

NASCAR 358 Modified GT Radiator Heat Races were won by Justin Grim, Howard, and Kevin Hirthler – each picked up a $100 bonus courtesy of Harry & George Turner of GT Radiator. The Modified B-Main was won by Doug Manmiller.

1. Ryan Godown, 2. Jeff Strunk, 3. Duane Howard, 4. Brett Kressley, 5. Craig VonDohren, 6. Kevin Hirthler, 7. Craig Whitmoyer, 8. Mike Gular, 9. Justin Grim, 10. Jordan Henn, 11. Kenny Gilmore, 12.
