The second round of recording was set to take place at our opener but mother nature wiped that out. Weather permitting the long awaited footage will…

(Sturgeon Bay, WI) June 22, 2013 Press Release- How’s the song go? Second verse, same as the first! Thunderhill Raceway pulls the pin for action tonight. With heavy rains which forced Luxemburg Speedway to cancel last night, Thunderhill has suffered the same fate and is following suit by doing so. Maybe we need to change the name of the track to remove the “Thunder” part?

I spoke directly with the track workers who have spent the last 4 hours trying to just get a single racing groove packed with no such luck. The track had standing water in…
