(Sturgeon Bay, WI) June 25, 2013- Reality show footage is scheduled to be shot this Saturday June 29 at Thunderhill Raceway with racing kicking off at 6pm. In April a meeting was held with a television producer/promoter with the plan of trying to get a racing reality show off the ground that featured the dynamic of the girls vs. boys battling on the flat 1/3 mile clay oval. The second round of recording was set to take place at our opener but mother nature wiped that out. Weather permitting the long awaited footage will be shot this Saturday.

We’re doing an unofficial casting call for all female and male drivers. The ladies will be in the spotlight, so if you’re a female racer we want to see you this weekend. It only takes one look on Facebook after a night of racing to realize some of the guys don’t like racing with or being beat by girls or vice versa. Racing drama is better than any soap opera and for us to keep pursuing this reality show we need the real you. So if the camera ends up on you, be yourself . We want the good the bad and the ugly!

Eagles Inside Groove…This weekends racing will be brought to you by Marchants Meats and the delicious Ribeye Sandwiches will available at the concession stand all night. My mouth is watering just thinking about it!

All about the Kids…Parents and children make sure to stop by the Dan Lewis Photography trailer and purchase a checker flag as we’ll be holding a Driver Autograph session for all the race fans. Dan, Mary and Mike Sr. always come prepared for race fans each and every night. For a few bucks you can have a great memory and souvenir for years to come.

As if the go-karts for the kids wasn’t enough the track is also offering bus rides around the track at intermission. The bus is able capable carrying 17 kids at a time. Other local race tracks have had great success with this and for us it allows the children who aren’t tall enough to drive the go-karts a chance to get on the race track.

The Terry Simon Memorial will be rescheduled. With 141 Speedway off this Saturday we are hoping for added fans and drivers for the cameras.

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. For more information, please visit the track’s website at www.racethunderhill.com Thunderhill is located at the John Miles Fair Park on Sturgeon Bay’s east side. Track GPS address is 1116 N 15th Pl. Pit gates open at 3:30 P.M. racing starts at 6:00 P.M. For your social media outlet like Thunderhill Raceway on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.
