(Sturgeon Bay, WI) June 4, 2014 – Race fans will be able to get autographs from their favorite drivers this Saturday June 7 at Thunderhill Raceway. Dan Lewis Photography will have a surplus of checkered flags for purchase to put those signatures on. Autograph session will take place at intermission.
The night is being brought to you by Jim Olson Motors of Sturgeon Bay. A brand new GM 602 Crate Engine will go to one lucky racer in the IMCA Sport Mod or IMCA Hobby Stock division at the 2014 banquet courtesy of Jim Olson Motors.
A $200 bounty has been put on Sturgeon Bay Street Stock driver Billy LeMieux for anyone who can cleanly beat him and take home the feature win. The $200 is being added onto the winners purse. Billy has 3 feature wins in a row to start the season and led the division last season with 5 feature wins and 7 heat race wins. If LeMieux wins again, $100 will be added and the bounty continues to the next weekend of racing. Should LeMieux DNF the race, the bounty will continue.
