(Sturgeon Bay, WI) December 21, 2013- Thunderhill Raceway heads into 2014 with guns blazing with its most aggressive marketing plan to help drivers keep their wheels turning. A minimum $6,500 in contingencies will be dished out at the banquet to drivers who support the track. Such business’s as Jerovetz Motorsports Shock Service, N.E.W Racing Supply, S & B Trailers, Kroll Racing Fabrication, Woody’s Signs, Floors by Josh and Vlies Custom Race Car Bodies have signed up to give-away tires, shocks, race car lettering, Ford 9”, Modified & Sport Mod spruce up kits, custom racing T-Shirts and so much more. Specifics for each business will be released after the new year.

“This is just a tip of the iceberg when it comes to contingencies.” Stated track promoter Woody Wodack, “I’ve been talking non stop with supporters who are signing on, this deal could be huge for our drivers.”

The track known as the circle of death has received a huge make over courtesy of Rass Excavating. Hundreds of yards of fresh premium clay now covers the newly shaped track. The track was surveyed and laid out with state of the art equipment. All problem spots in the track, namely turn 2 and 4 were cut out. This will add banking to the exit of each corner, setting it up for late race passes. The clay was laid out from the top side of the track and worked to the bottom, this will offer drivers a multi-racing grooves around the 1/3 mile oval. The track surface was also widened out to 75’ all the way around which will make it easy to battle 3 and 4 wide racing.

The season is slated to have 18 point nights with racing starting on Saturday April 27 continuing to championship night on Saturday August 27. A special is also penciled for September 10 & 11. A few front row spots remain open for purchase along with several second and third row parking spots. Call today to make sure when you pull in the gate you have your spot.

Rules for the Street Stocks will remain basically the same as last year with a just a few minor tweaks. John Sternard will be the Rep for the division.

Everyone here at the Hill wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas!
