(Sturgeon Bay, WI) June 22, 2013 Press Release- How’s the song go? Second verse, same as the first! Thunderhill Raceway pulls the pin for action tonight. With heavy rains which forced Luxemburg Speedway to cancel last night, Thunderhill has suffered the same fate and is following suit by doing so. Maybe we need to change the name of the track to remove the “Thunder” part?

I spoke directly with the track workers who have spent the last 4 hours trying to just get a single racing groove packed with no such luck. The track had standing water in several places which would’ve lead to a rough racing surface and tore up race cars. Last week we pushed the boundaries of what the track could take and everyone suffered. We definitely weren’t going to make the same mistake again.

Joe Verdegan has a great column in the Full Throttle racing magazine dealing with the business side of race tracks when working with rain outs and bad weather. Make sure to check it out.

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.
