THUNDERHILL RACEWAY DRIVERS MEETING FRIDAY DEC 19th @ THE DRAFT HAUS

Thunderhill 2015 Drivers Meeting Dec 19

By Edward Anschutz

(Sturgeon Bay, WI) December 9th Press Release- Thunderhill Raceway preps for the 2015 season and will hold it’s drivers meeting on Friday December 19th, at The Draft Haus Sports Bar at 7:00 pm. The Draft Haus is located at 901 Egg Harbor Rd. Sturgeon Bay.

Fresh off the $30,000 contingency awards banquet last month, promoter Woody Wodack feels the track gaining traction heading for the 2015 season. “We put together one of the best contingency packages any dirt track in northeastern Wisconsin has ever seen.” “Every driver who ran the qualifying number of nights was rewarded greatly for their loyalty. This season, the plan is to build on last years success.”

Pit spots must be paid for before or at the meeting. Any pit stalls that remain unpaid or open will then go to a lottery of drivers who want to purchase them. Memberships will also be available for purchase which allows for a few bucks off your pit pass throughout the season.

Several other items will be addressed at the meeting including schedule, general track rules and Street Stock rules. We will be open for discussion in ways to promote the IMCA Hobby Stock division in the hopes of raising the car count.

We hope to see you all for a evening of talking racing and enjoying some great food and adult beverages… www.thedrafthaus.com
