(Sturgeon Bay, WI) May 5, 2013- With the May 11 season opener less than a week away the IMCA Modifieds will be chasing added cash to win the feature at Thunderhill Raceway. A great supporter of the track offered to kick in some extra cash, bringing first place pay to a guaranteed $650. In addition a hard charger bonus of $50 will be added to the driver who passes the most cars in the feature
Thunderhill’s Modified class has fluctuated through recent years and there has be a lot of trash talking that anyone can win at the track known as the “Circle of Death” due its unique design. Its time to put up or shut up come opening night. We’re calling out the best in the IMCA Modified division to come and try to beat our hard working blue color locals. If you can do so, you’ll be walking away with a pocket full of cash….If not, it’ll once again prove our regulars are some of the best in the business.
Normally these type of added cash races come at end of the year specials at the expense of the drivers who pay large pit gate fees. Thunderhill is set to change all that offering a one time $50 membership fee, you basically get in FREE for all regular point nights. With our opener coming on May 11 it’ll offer drivers a fresh start to chase a championship if they’ve been off to a rough start at other tracks. Pits spots are still available.
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. 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.
