(Sturgeon Bay, WI) April 18, 2014- With weather conditions being less than desirable Thunderhill Raceway has been forced to cancel practice for April 19. Practice is being tentatively rescheduled for April 29 while the season opener has been pushed to May 3.
While we want to get the 2014 rolling the biggest emphasis will be put on taking care of the drivers and their race cars. “We refuse to tear up equipment or the track just to get opening night in the books.” Stated Woody; “The goal will to be to give drivers and race fans the best show possible. Mother nature has played havoc in recent weeks so we are hoping for some sunshine and dry weather.”
A second practice is also in the works.
Five divisions do battle every Saturday night through the summer. IMCA Modified, IMCA Stock Car, IMCA Northern Sport Mod, IMCA Hobby Stock and Street Stocks will compete on the 1/3rd mile clay oval. For more information, please visit the track’s website at www.racethunderhill.com Thunderhill is located at the John Miles Fair Park on Sturgeon Bay’s east side. Track GPS address is 1116 N 15th Pl. Pit gates open at 3:30 P.M. racing starts at 6:00 P.M. For your social media outlet like Thunderhill Raceway on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.

(Sturgeon Bay, WI) April 17, 2014- The 2nd Annual John Soukup Memorial will pay $1000 to the winner and $150 to start the feature. Draw re-draw will set the field. This special event will take place on Friday July 4th. Luxemburg Speedway has the night off. All 5 divisions in action.
It’s also Topless Night for the Sport Mods. All Sport Mods must remove their roofs to be eligible for $1000 top prize. I’ll repeat that, in order to claim the $1000 for the win you must have the to the roof and sail panels removed. If not standard pay applies.
It will NOT be a track point night for the Mods, Stock Cars or Sport Mods but will be IMCA sanctioned with National, State and Regional points awarded. This is done so competing drivers at the Oshkosh Speedzone can stay in the points chase.
Entry for the event will be same price as regular event. Non-members are $25 and members are $20. No extra fees!
Mods, Stock Cars and Sport Mods lineups will be through draw re-draw for heats and features. It will be a regular point night for the IMCA Hobby Stocks and Street Stocks. $1 Busch Light with paid wristband.
“The winners purse could rise, last year it doubled as local Bernie Reinhardt took home the win”. Stated track promoter Woody Wodack; “John was a great friend and keeping his memory alive at the track he loved makes it a special night for everyone who comes in the gate. We’re looking for some solid competition from outsiders and our locals.”
This night will count towards the $20,000 contingency. You will be allowed to miss 3 nights of racing and still remain in the drawing.
