USAC Eastern Storm Enters Grandview


USAC LogoBECHTELSVILLE, Penn. – There’s a storm heading east.

The AMSOIL USAC Eastern Storm will make its first stop at Grandview Speedway on June 3 in an event presented by Window World of Lehigh Valley.

The 8th Annual AMSOIL Eastern Storm showcases the USAC National Non-Wing sprint cars in a five-race east-coast swing that opens as part of the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series as Grandview.

This event, labeled the Jesse Hockett Classic, will remember one of the all-time great sprint car drivers who lost his life in a freak garage accident in 2010.

In the 2009 running of the Amsoil Eastern Storm, Jesse Hockett won two USAC sprint car features in the same night at Grandview, an exciting and memorable night for this popular sprint car icon.

Jarrett Andretti of Indianapolis will make his first start ever at Grandview on June 3.

At 21, Andretti is a member and weekly competitor with USAC and sponsored by Window World.

“I have always heard great things about Grandview Speedway and appreciate their support of the USAC Sprint Car Series,” he said.

“The larger Pennsylvania tracks, Grandview included, are really able to show fans what the cars are capable of and give us a break from the Indiana bullrings. I am looking forward to my first trip to PA and thankful for USAC and all the tracks for making it all possible.”
