(Sturgeon Bay, WI) June, 6 2013 Press Release- Last week Mother Nature may have got the best of us but its not putting a stop to the $1 Bud Light and Budweiser this Saturday night June 8 at Thunderhill Raceway. The buck beer will last all night with a paid wrist band. Northland Steel of Sturgeon Bay will bring the IMCA Hobby Stocks into the spotlight with driver introductions. The Bartenders Race will be rescheduled.

With no racing the point standings stay the same which allows me to let you know more of what’s happening at The Hill with something I like to call “Eagles Inside Groove”….

Former IMCA Stock Car champion Greg Gretz of Kewaunee made his debut in the Kelsey Racing IMCA Modifieds at Thunderhill two weeks ago . Gretz is a racing a Slick Chassis built by Russ Reinwald of Juneau. The chassis burst onto the scene scoring several feature wins last season. Years ago it was common place for local drivers to buy chassis  that were built out of state, namely Iowa. Now days local racers have started their own chassis shops with great success. James Lee Tebon of Algoma finished second in the standings in 2012 at Luxemburg Speedway by only 3 points and earned his first career IMCA Modified championship at Thunderhill with a Slick Chassis, he’s currently getting his new Slick machine dialed in.

Speaking of chassis builds in Wisconsin, Kewaunee’s Luke Lemmens broke into victory lane two weeks ago in the Bull Pen Bar & Grill IMCA Stock Cars wheeling a 2013 FAST Chassis. These race cars are built by defending IMCA Stock Car champ Dave Bouche of Algoma.

3rd Generation racer Daniel Sell of Suring made his first ever laps in the Lackie Rentals IMCA Hobby Stocks for the 5th Annual NB-27 night. The Weidner Family borrowed Daniel Sell one of their race cars allowing him to get his feet wet in the sport. Daniel Sell was running well until a mechanical failure ended his maiden voyage. The late JR Sell paved the way for his son Dan to race in the IMCA Stock Car ranks in the mid 90’s while working out of the Bouche Racing shop in Algoma. Dan jumped back into Nathan’s memorial car and won his heat and placed fifth in the feature. Sells have always ran under the Ford Motorsports blue oval banner.
