(Sturgeon Bay, WI) May 16, 2013- Thunderhill Raceway is coming out of the gate swinging with a guaranteed $800 purse for the winner of the Kelsey Racing IMCA Modified feature. The season opener is this Saturday May 18, brought to you by Dave Hatch Racing and WDOR. A $50 Hard Charger award will be given to the driver who passes the most cars in the mod main courtesy of N.E.W. Racing Supplies.
Thunderhill is in search of a few brave souls to race their street vehicles for the Spectator Eliminator tentatively taking place as the last race of the night. Drivers will need to have a “street legal” vehicle, helmet, seat belts are mandatory…racing suits recommended. Spectator Eliminator drivers must buy a pit pass, register at the pit gate before the night starts and attend the drivers meeting. No coming out of stands to race. Winner gets a trophy and a trip to victory lane!
The best photographers in the business, Dan & Mary Lewis are back once again to take photos. If you still need Hot Shot pictures, make sure to get to the track early. Huge thanks to all our division sponsors…

For those of you heading to the track 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. 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.
