BECHTELSVILLE, PA AUGUST 24, 2021 . . .

And Ryan Grim has captured the 602 Sportsman Mini Series with 1134 points.

Von Dohren is shooting for his 12th Modified title at Grandview but has Brett Kressley, who is looking to win his first Modified title, close behind with 4140 counters. Both have won five features.
