Thunderhill Speedway is cancelled for tonight June 22

By Edward Anschutz

(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 several places which would’ve lead to a rough racing surface and tore up race cars. Last week we pushed the boundaries of what the track could take and everyone suffered. We definitely weren’t going to make the same mistake again.

Joe Verdegan has a great column in the Full Throttle racing magazine dealing with the business side of race tracks when working with rain outs and bad weather. Make sure to check it out.

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.

By Edward Anschutz
Editorial Contributor Mike Kelsey

(Sturgeon Bay, WI) June 12, 2013- Week 4 preview at Thunderhill Raceway which features $1 Coors Light the entire night with a paid admission this Saturday June 15. We are looking for our first entries for the Spectator Eliminator. Rules are very simple…must have helmet, paid pit pass, street-able vehicle no “race cars“, 18yrs or older. Driver doesn’t need valid drivers licenses but must have ID. You race after the final feature of the night. The winner gets a nice trophy for victory! Great chance to get out on the “Circle of Death” and get your adrenaline fix without all the expenses of a race car.

Egg Harbor Fun Park has been gracious enough to lend Thunderhill a few Go-Karts and the plan is to choose 3 kids names, let those kids choose their favorite racer and let them race on the Go-Kart track at intermission. “Were currently working out all the details for ages that will be eligible to race. More importantly our goal is to give the kids a memory of a lifetime in racing their dirt track hero.” stated Woody. We’ve also thought about having race fans pay a small fee to race their favorite driver at the end of the night and all money raised to will go to our DOOR CANcer account and will be used to help local families fighting Cancer.

Eagles Inside Track…

The Stock Cars saw the return of Shawn Olson. Olson raced the #52 machine of Troy Muench. At Luxemburg Speedway Muench debut his brand new Petrie Chassis IMCA Stock Car which features the John Soukup #99. Muench as well as many others have changed their car number to the 99 in memory of Soukup who lost his battle with cancer this off season. Olson is a sponsor on both Muench’s race cars which resulted in some extra seat time for the former Street Stock champ

In the Kelsey Racing IMCA Modifieds Dan Ratajczak picked up his second feature win in a row. James Tebon leads the standings by 6 points over Ratajczak. Billy LeMieux sit’s a bakers dozen behind Tebon. Greg Gretz Mods in only his second start in the Mods has already won a heat race. Gretz is the leading Rookie in the class.

Despite a hard wreck a couple weeks ago Bret Koehler found victory lane in the Bull Pen Bar IMCA Stock Cars. Dave Bouche hasn’t finished outside the top four in this early season which has vaulted him into the point lead. Opening night feature winner Shawn Havel sits second just 3 points back of Bouche. Jeremy Wiitala is third in points just 6 markers back, Luke Lemmens who has one feature to his credit sits fourth 7 points out, John Anschutz & Tom Brumlic tied are for fifth in the standings 9 points behind the leader. Last season the title came down to the final night of the season, this year looks to be the same.

Opening night feature winner Jarred VanLaanen holds the number one spot in the LaVine’s Ice IMCA Sport Mods. It’s a total free for all for the top spot with the top eight in points are only separated by 10 points. Every night for here on out will feel like the final point night for all the title contenders. Defending champ Bernie Reinhardt picked up the win last week and sits second on the standings, Randy LeMieux Jr. third, Josh Massart fourth, Chris Budzban and Dennis Miesler are tied for fifth, Kelsy Hayes seventh and Ryan LeMieux eighth.

Martin Kelsey’s bad luck in the Sport Mods has continued after running in the top five every night Martin has been caught up in late race wrecks, results haven’t matched his performance. In the Rookie battle Cody Rass holds a 3 point edge over Jacob Zellner. Rass sits tenth in the standings.

Despite being disqualified twice at Luxemburg Scott Boulanger has been perfect at Thunderhill in the Lackie Rentals IMCA Hobby Stocks with three feature wins in three nights. He leads last years runner up Derek Moede by 4 points. 2003 Hobby champ Joe Hegnet sits third 13 points out of the lead.

In the Showcase Kitchens Street Stocks Keith Kickbusch holds a slim 3 point edge over Kevin Luedtke. Last weeks winner Brandon Peterson suffered a DNF (did not finish) is back in the title hunt 10 points back. Jeremy Dubois runs fourth 11 markers behind the leader. Kickbusch and Peterson hold titles in the IMCA Hobby Stocks while Dubois holds one in the Feisty Fours. Luedtke is chasing his first title. Former Street Stock champ John Sternard was suspended for a week after having issues with Todd Wagner. This pushes Sternard out of the title contention while Wagner sits fifth.

EAGLES INSIDE GROOVE @ T-HILL WITH RACING THIS SATURDAY JUNE 8 $1 BUD NIGHT

By Edward Anschutz

(Sturgeon Bay, WI) June, 6 2013 Press Release- Last week Mother Nature may have got the best of us but its not putting a stop to the $1 Bud Light and Budweiser this Saturday night June 8 at Thunderhill Raceway. The buck beer will last all night with a paid wrist band. Northland Steel of Sturgeon Bay will bring the IMCA Hobby Stocks into the spotlight with driver introductions. The Bartenders Race will be rescheduled.

With no racing the point standings stay the same which allows me to let you know more of what’s happening at The Hill with something I like to call “Eagles Inside Groove”….

Former IMCA Stock Car champion Greg Gretz of Kewaunee made his debut in the Kelsey Racing IMCA Modifieds at Thunderhill two weeks ago . Gretz is a racing a Slick Chassis built by Russ Reinwald of Juneau. The chassis burst onto the scene scoring several feature wins last season. Years ago it was common place for local drivers to buy chassis  that were built out of state, namely Iowa. Now days local racers have started their own chassis shops with great success. James Lee Tebon of Algoma finished second in the standings in 2012 at Luxemburg Speedway by only 3 points and earned his first career IMCA Modified championship at Thunderhill with a Slick Chassis, he’s currently getting his new Slick machine dialed in.

Speaking of chassis builds in Wisconsin, Kewaunee’s Luke Lemmens broke into victory lane two weeks ago in the Bull Pen Bar & Grill IMCA Stock Cars wheeling a 2013 FAST Chassis. These race cars are built by defending IMCA Stock Car champ Dave Bouche of Algoma.

3rd Generation racer Daniel Sell of Suring made his first ever laps in the Lackie Rentals IMCA Hobby Stocks for the 5th Annual NB-27 night. The Weidner Family borrowed Daniel Sell one of their race cars allowing him to get his feet wet in the sport. Daniel Sell was running well until a mechanical failure ended his maiden voyage. The late JR Sell paved the way for his son Dan to race in the IMCA Stock Car ranks in the mid 90’s while working out of the Bouche Racing shop in Algoma. Dan jumped back into Nathan’s memorial car and won his heat and placed fifth in the feature. Sells have always ran under the Ford Motorsports blue oval banner.

Full Throttle racing magazine has made its return to our local dirt tracks due to the extensive work of Bert Lehman. Lehman could be consider the center of the racing universe covering stories from tracks, drivers and local touring series. A Thunderhill Raceway article will be forth coming. Not only do you receive exclusive stories in Full Throttle, the magazine is also FREE and can be picked up at the Dan Lewis Photography trailer.

Lehman also offers race fans a chance to own their favorite dirt drivers die cast car. He offers an endless display from the cars of yesteryear to 2013 Late Models. “Like” his page on Facebook at www.facebook.com/HighWideHandsomeCustomDieCasts

By Edward Anschutz
Editorial Contributor Mike Kelsey
(Sturgeon Bay, WI) May 23, 2013- Thunderhill Raceway gears up for night number two with the 5th Annual Nathan Bouche Memorial this Saturday night May 25. With 141 Speedway off and Shawano Speedway not sanctioning for the Mods, this leaves Thunderhill as the only track in the state where drivers in the IMCA Modifieds can earn sanctioned points. “With the weather playing havoc in recent weeks this will offer Wisconsin drivers chasing State, Regional and National points an extra night.” Stated track promoter Woody Wodack.

The Bouche racing shop has always helped those with the will to race. The NB-27 memorial will award the Sportsman trophy to someone who defines what racing and family are all about. The traveling trophy has been awarded to Nathan’s father IMCA Stock Car driver Tony Bouche, Billy Hayes, Edward Anschutz and Darrell Massart. Award ceremony will take place in front of the grandstand. The IMCA Stock Cars are spotlighted and will have driver introductions for their feature.

We will also take a moment of silence in memory of those who made the ultimate sacrifice fighting for our freedom while serving our great nation.

REMINDER…For those of you heading to the track this summer the 42/57 bridge is closed for construction. Track GPS address is 1116 N 15th Pl…this will take you right to the pit gate. Detour signs are posted, so make sure to follow them into town, then let the GPS take you the rest of the way. Otherwise I’m pretty sure it will take you to the closed bridge.

AARON “THE HAMMER” THORNTON TAKES ON NEW ROLE AT THUNDERHILL

By Edward Anschutz
Editorial Contributor Mike Kelsey

(Sturgeon Bay, WI) March 23, 2013- One of Thunderhill Raceway’s most decorated racers looks to enter new role as car owner. Aaron “The Hammer” Thornton looks to help an old time racer cross a wish off his bucket list. With his very busy seasonal business Seal-Tec Seal Coating, Thornton’s time in the shop has been limited over the years and last season he only raced a few times. At 69 years young “Wild” Bill Krueger has seen it and just about done it all in racing. He and his wife Mary are now retired and living in Sturgeon Bay. Kruger is a published author and was a paid crew member on an open wheel Indy Car team in the late 1960’s. Kruger will add another chapter to his storied career driving for Thornton in 2013.

“Wild” Bill’s first race came to be at Jefferson Speedway when a friend bet him he was to scared too strap in the car and race it. This took place in 1960 barely 18 years old Krueger, had to duck track officials as he wasn’t old enough to race! He ended up an impressive ninth out of 23 cars driving a 1949 Buick 4 door Sedan that featured a straight 8 engine. Krueger has wins on the dirt capturing a feature win at Chilton in the Sportsman division which paid a grand total of two dollars and a case of beer. He’s raced in several different states, numerous tracks that include Indianapolis Raceway Park, Elkhart Lake, Hales Corners, Slinger Super Speedway and the Milwaukee Mile. Next on the list, Thunderhill Raceway.

If you’ve been racing for a long time you’re considered a veteran. This makes Thornton’s race car a veteran and then some. “The car started out racing an Enduro Series then progressed into a early 90’s IMCA Stock Car finally finding its home as a Street Stock a few years later.” “I bought it from local racer Troy Muench in 1999 and won the 2004 Street Stock title at Thunderhill.” “This will be the 26th season on the car.” In fact Thornton has never finished outside the top three in points in all the years he ran full time with that car.

Thornton has competed the Bomber, Street Stock, IMCA Stock Car and IMCA Modified divisions, finding victory lane in all of them. He holds two track championships at Thunderhill and a Street Stock title at Luxemburg Speedway. When you see the black and gold #95 remember “Wild” Bill is behind the wheel. As for Thornton’s racing future; “As the years go by I’ve raced less and less, it maybe time for me to hang up my drivers suit, time will tell.” “For now I’m looking forward to helping Krueger drive that old tank of mine.”

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.

By Edward Anschutz

(Sturgeon Bay, WI) May 11, 2013- Mother-Nature has once again caused another track in N.E. Wisconsin to cancel a night of racing. Thunderhill Raceway is forced cancel due to heavy rains, pits being flooded & just plain ole nasty weather…oh and its snowing. We are set to attempt another go at it next Saturday, May 18 for Dave Hatch Racing, WDOR and Maas Floral night.

Talked to Woody and staff members that have been at the track since 7am trying to see what they could do to and make things a go. In preparation for the bad weather the track was worked until the early morning , unfortunately the weather didn’t cooperate at all.

Woody stated, “Even if the pits weren’t flooded the condition of the racing surface likely would’ve been sketchy, unless you have mud and snow tires.” “We need warm weather and sun shine, cross your fingers for next weekend!”

Its time to put up or shut up come opening night. We’re calling out the best in the IMCA Modified division to come and try to beat our hard working blue color locals. If you can do so, you’ll be walking away with a pocket full of cash….If not, it’ll once again prove our regulars are some of the best in the business.
