2010 Season Letter to Drivers

Welcome drivers, to the 2010 season. We are having a drivers meeting on Wednesday, November 18th at 7:00p.m. The meeting will be held at The Ladder House in the upstairs banquet hall. We would like to see all drivers, new and old. There will be a number of things to discuss at this meeting.

The good news is Thunderhill will be racing in 2010. Prestige Yacht Coatings is on board as the title sponsor for another year. What Joe Hernandez, owner of PYC did for the track, along with all the ’09 sponsors was tremendous. I fully expect to continue the great year we had, right into the 2010 season!

The areas I want to go over…2010 schedule, specials, rules in general, class reps, any input / thoughts that you as a driver may have.

We also will be going over 1st and 2nd row pit spots. To hold your previous spot you will need to have paid for it in full, before or on the date of the meeting, otherwise it will be put up for lottery. The prices for pit spots are the same, $100.00 for 1st row, and $50.00 for second row. Any other pit spot being reserved in all remaining rows will also be $50.00. The name on the pit spot is responsible for that spot.  Again this year I had parking issues in the second row, I need to get this resolved. I will make every effort to keep in order & everyone in the correct spots.

The classes that will be running for points are the IMCA Mods, Sport mods, Stock cars, Hobby Stocks, Street Stocks, and 4-cylinders. 2010 rules for most classes and IMCA licenses will be available. We also may be looking for reps in the IMCA divisions. Anyone that is interested can come talk to me.

Any questions and concerns that you may have will be discussed at the meeting.

Sincerely,

Bryan Wodack

RAIN CANCELS CHAMPIONSHIP NIGHT AT THUNDERHILL

by Chris Budzban

August 29, 2009; Sturgeon Bay, WI – Persistent rain showers put an end to the 2009 season at Prestige Yacht Coatings Thunderhill Raceway.

It was a season of firsts in all divisions, as all the champions had never won a title in their respective divisions.

Two-time IMCA stock car champion Shawn Kilgore captured his 1st career IMCA modified title, beating out six-time and defending champion Todd Dart.

Former street stock track champion Mike Pierrard also picked up his 1st career title in the IMCA stock car division, winning out over Pat Davister and Troy Muench.

IMCA stock car veteran Cory Cochart beat out last year’s runner-up Brad Lautenbach for the crown in the IMCA northern sport mod division.  The title is Cochart’s 1st in any division.

Frank Paul captured his 1st career track title as well, a solid season for the veteran of the division.  He beat out hometown driver Brandon Peterson.

Veteran NEW super stock driver Jeremy Wiitala picked up his 1st career title in the division.  Wiitala was the track champion in the bomber division back in 2001.

Kipp Burlo edged Kasey Gross in the 4 cylinder division for his 1st career championship.

The rainout concludes the 2009 season at Prestige Yacht Coatings Thunderhill Raceway.  Thank you to all the sponsors, drivers, fans and track personnel who made it a very exciting and successful season at the track.
