Posted under News on August 12th, 2010

(Sturgeon Bay, WI) August 12 – Witt Peninsula Ford will be the title sponsor for this Saturday August 14 at Prestige Yacht Coatings ThunderHill Raceway.

Kids big wheel races will take place at intermission on the front stretch. You must enter the track from the turn one entrance located to the right side of the grandstand.

Weekly Notes:

With only 4 points nights left with each position in the feature becomes more critical. Each spot in the feature is worth one point with the winner getting receiving 40.

In the IMCA Modifieds Jay Matthias holds the top spot for the first time this season, holding a 1 point lead over Todd Dart. Matthias is eyeing his first career title, while Dart has 6 titles to his résumé.

Greg Gretz had the title all but wrapped up in the IMCA Stock cars until a broken transmission relegated him to a 20th place finish last Saturday night. Gretz’s closes competitor Charlie Kroll came home with a 2nd place finish putting him within 3 points of Gretz. Gretz still has his sights set on his first career title, while Kroll has one ThunderHill title to his credit taking the top prize in 1994.

Eric Arneson sits firmly atop the IMCA Sport Mods holding a 19 point lead over Ryan LeMieux. LeMieux has out run Arneson the couple week, so look for the title chase to come down the last night. Neither driver have never won at title at ThunderHill.

Luke Lemmens leads in the IMCA Hobby Stocks with a 9 point edge over Brandon Peterson. Both Drivers are eyeing there first career championships. Lemmens is also battling for a state title sitting 2nd 5 points behind Marcus Moede.

The battle for the top spot in the Street Stocks has been the most changing, as it seems to change after every night of racing. Fresh off his 2nd feature win of the season Geno Sternard climbs into a tie with James Bosman for the lead. Bosman suffered heavy damage in a wreck and limped his racer home to a 13th place finish. Rookie Tony Everard came home with a 3rd place finish and sits just 4 markers back of Sternard and Bosman.

Despite having 4 feature wins on the season, Jeremy DuBois holds a 9 point lead over Mike Sargent in the Feisty Fours.

Thunderhill is located at the John Miles Fair Park on Sturgeon Bay’s east side with racing in the six divisions beginning every Saturday night through the summer.
