Grandview Speedway is a one third-mile automobile race track located just east of Bechtelsville, Pennsylvania, United States. Featuring moderately high banks and a wide racing surface, it is suitable for close racing and passing.

The track opened in 1963 and was built by Forrest Rogers. The track was originally planned as a ¼ mile (402 meters) asphalt track in Pottstown, Pennsylvania. Eventually this was changed to a larger dirt track in Bechtelsville, Pennsylvania. Forrest Rogers died of a heart attack in 1966. His son, Bruce Rogers, took control of the race track and operates it to this day.[1][2]

It features a regular weekly series of modified, sportsman modified, and late model stock car racing.
