(Sturgeon Bay, WI) July 24, 2013 Press Release- Thunderhill Raceway to pay $1,000 cash money to the feature winners in the Kelsey Racing IMCA Modifieds and Bull Pen Bar & Grill IMCA Stock Cars this Saturday, July 27. This will be the 3rd time this season the purse has reached One Thousand Dollars or more. Even with the added cash it’s being treated as a usual point night with starting position going by point average. With that said “outsiders” have done very well matching up against our locals. Who will be the next “Thousand Dollar Man or Woman?”
Its that time of the year again where fans come out in full force for the annual “Trailer Race of Destruction” brought to you by Quietwoods RV Sales & Service. Quietwoods RV has been gracious enough to donate 4 campers that will be destroyed after the final feature of the night. One of the objects that will meet its demise is a 26’ 2012 camper. “Many people have asked why a new camper? The answer is all about the awe factor and entertainment for our fans!” Stated track promoter Woody Wodack.
We still have spots open on the grid for the trailer race if you wish to compete please contact Woody. Also please make note of vehicle, name and number at the back gate so they announcer knows who you are!
Eagles Inside Groove…
Rookies have taken a strong hold all over local short tracks in North Eastern Wisconsin. The Kelsey Racing IMCA Modifieds are proof of that. Kewaunee’s Greg Gretz has won 2 feature in a row plus 4 heat races. Gretz is the rookie leader despite a late start to the season.
Luxemburg’s Jacob Zellner joined the local rookie young guns by scoring he first ever LaVine’s Ice IMCA Sport Mod feature at The Hill. Zellner is a former national cart champion. Check out the latest edition of Full Throttle Magazine to learn more about our local young guns driving into victory lane at your race track.
