(Sturgeon Bay, WI) June 15, 2013 Results- As the green flag flew for the first feature of the night the skies opened and action was halted. The staff knew once the rain started it wasn’t going to stop and the races were cancelled at Thunderhill Raceway. All qualifying races had been complete which constitutes a complete show per the rule book. All drivers received equal pay and points for the night. Huge thanks to all the drivers who did their best in helping us get the show in.

The Egg Harbor Fun Park go-karts saw their first action as three lucky fans raced their dirt track heroes on the oval go-kart track that lies within the infield of the track. In competition Morgan Serveys upset Dave Bouche in a 4 lap dash, Bradley Skippon bested Kelsy Hayes and Brayden LeMieux made short work of Randy LeMieux Jr. en route to victory.

The go-kart races are something we are hoping to do on a weekly basis, with a maximum of 3 children per night. Right now drivers must be 4’ or taller to register. We are working on ideas to get the shorter children a chance to race as well. We’ve also thrown around ideas to do a raffle for a race at the end of the night, all money raised would be donated to DOOR CANcer. For now you can get a ticket for your children at the ticket booth after the first heat race has started not before as we want to let fans in the stands first so we don’t mess up the ticket line.

Next Saturday June 22 we hope to finally be in Mother Natures good graces as we set to remember long time Thunderhill supporter and race fan Terry Simon. The night will feature driver introduction in the Kelsey Racing IMCA Modifieds and everyone will receive free popcorn.
