(Sturgeon Bay, WI) May 6, 2013- In this day and age its hard to find someone who hasn’t had cancer touch their life. So many have fought and beat this disease, far too many times we have sadly lost loved ones. A fight with cancer is a tall enough task even with the best doctors in the world. The cost of medical bills alone can be staggering. Add in the loss of an income because they aren’t able to work, all of this can be to overwhelming for any family. This is where Thunderhill Raceway and DOOR CANcer come together.

Our goal in working with DOOR CAN is to help those who are currently courageously battling cancer.
This will be achieved in several ways which include but are not limited to apparel sales, donations and a 50/50 raffle. We already have drivers who are willing to donate their payout after a night of racing. Several racers have come up with special paint jobs on their race cars to support the cause at Thunderhill as well as pay respects to those who have passed away. Most drivers these days barely have enough cash to fill up their hauler to get back home. This truly shows the character of drivers, crews, sponsors and staff we have at Thunderhill Raceway.

A special committee separate from the race track will be in charge of all the money raised. Working with DOOR CANcer means we can directly work with local family’s in their time of need. For more information about DOOR CANcer please visit their website at

Actions kicks off Saturday May 11 with IMCA Modified, IMCA Stock Car, IMCA Northern Sport Mod, IMCA Hobby Stock and Street Stocks will compete on the 1/3rd mile clay oval.
