(Sturgeon Bay, WI) April 7, 2013 – A few months back Sturgeon Bay’s Bill Hayes was approached by the makers of Great Lake Warriors which is a reality show that airs on the History Channel. They wanted to know if Hayes daughter, Kelsy was interested in a racing themed show, of which showcased what it’s like to be a female racer in a predominantly male sport and all the that goes into becoming and taking on the top guns in the IMCA Sport Mod division.

On Friday April 5 the tv producer/promoter met with Hayes, track promoter Woody Wodack and Thunderhill Raceway announcer Edward Anschutz to interview and get comfortable with inner the workings of Thunderhill Raceway. Footage was shot in the shop where Hayes’s IMCA Sport Mod is being readied for the 2013 season. As of right now more footage is slated to shoot the first two nights of racing.

Many know Bill for his recycling business, Metal’s America located in Door County. Bill is no stranger to dirt track racing. He’s raced everything from a Street Stock to a Modified. A few years ago his daughter Kelsy followed in his foot steps wanting to get behind the wheel. She began her career in the Hobby Stock division before moving to the highly competitive Sport Mods where she won two features in 2012 and finished third in the standings just a handful of points from winning the championship.

“We have a great dynamic here at Thunderhill, the fact footage will be shot at the track is great for everyone who supports our Saturday night shows” stated Woody. Many details are currently being discussed and we will have more information in coming weeks.

Thunderhill Raceway features arguably one of the nicest dirt track faculties in Wisconsin. On track Musco Lighting that makes it look like daytime when night falls. Hard packed pit area makes it easy if you need to work on your race car. The track is also level with the pit area making it very easily visible from the pits making it easy to keep up on track conditions. It also allows you to enjoy a night of racing as if you were in the stands. The PA system is second to none encased in an easy accessible covered grandstand that offers back rest and plenty of leg room. The track is a uniquely shaped 1/3 mile clay base with very little banking, it’s a true drivers track that is affectionately known as the “Circle of Death.”

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.
