Grandview SpeedwayFrom Bob Miller

Blood-curdling screams will be heard when the spookiest drivers in the area descend upon the Grandview Speedway for the final time of the season, as the NAPA AUTO PARTS Thunder on the Hill Racing Series presents the popular Grandview Thunder 5-25s features only event and House of Thunder Halloween Party. The action will take place on Saturday night, October 18 with the first of five features taking the green flag at 6 PM. Gates will open at 4 PM

The NASCAR 358 Modifieds, URC Sprint Cars, ARDC Midgets, Sportsman and Legends cars will each compete in a ‘frightful’ 25 lap feature event – along with the Blast from the Past Vintage Stock cars and the maniacal MONSTER SMASH Demolition Derby that close out the spooky night.

Led by 10-time NASCAR 358 Modified Champion, Jeff Strunk, the mighty Modifieds – featuring top runners: Duane Howard, Frank Cozze, Meme DeSantis, Ryan Grim and invader, Mike Mahaney — will certainly provide some wheel-banging, hard-hitting Halloween action. This event has no tricks, just treats as these fierce competitors battle for $3,000 to win, $1,000 for third, $700 for fifth and $260 to take the green.

Davie “No Panic” Franek, out of Wontage, NJ is the Rislone URC Sprint Series point leader and has his eye on the 2014 United Racing Company championship as the series makes their final date of the 2014 season. Franek has to watch his back as the ghouls of races past – Josh Weller, Randy West, Robbie Stillwaggon, Ed Aikin and Troy Betts all look to bury alive the point leader.

The Modifieds, URC Sprints, ARDC Midgets and Sportsman will utilize timed warm-ups to determine the starting order for each feature event, while the Legends cars will use their current points standing with an invert to make up their feature line-up.

All this action coupled with Thunder on the Hill mainstays: FREE Pit Tours and the Inside/Out Experience – available for you to sign-up directly inside the main gate. The Low Down and Dirty Radio Show will be hosting their pre-race Meet and Greet. JOE THE PIZZA DUDE and the Thunder Girls will be available along with give-a-ways, games and prizes. Also, Jay Dugan from the Radical Design Group will be there to “trick or treat” the race fans as he leads the social media interaction for Thunder on the Hill.

Fans are encouraged to dress in costume to be eligible for special Halloween treats.
