Pioneer Pole Buildings will be the sponsor for the night as the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series presents a huge sprint car and modified double-header.  Additional event sponsors include  MACH 1 Chassis, Window World of the Lehigh Valley and GALCO Business Communications.   Pioneer Pole Buildings is the premier builder of post frame buildings in PA, NJ, DE, MD, WV, VA, and NY. Pioneer was founded in 1998, and has since built their business and quality reputation on providing customers with top quality buildings at very competitive prices. PPB  place a high priority on creating a superior building experience for our customers, BEFORE… DURING… and AFTER construction.


Thunder fans anxious for pre-race action can sign up for free tours of the pit area, where selected drivers will be available to sign autographs, answer questions, and boast about their plans to conquer the famed 1/3-mile clay oval.  Tours leave the grandstand area every 15 minutes with sign-ups available just inside the main entrance.


For fans looking for something a bit more exhilarating, there’s not a lot in life that can compare to watching a 410 Sprint Car blast past from just a few feet away.  The Thunder on the Hill ‘Inside Out Experience’ gets fans inside the action – literally.  Fans can sign-up free of charge to watch pre-race warm ups from inside turn four of the Grandview Speedway.


These unique opportunities lead to the co-main events: the 410 Sprint Cars and Race of Champions Big Block Modifieds will present a double header of exciting racing action.  Time trials and qualifying races will set the lineup for the 35-lap 410 Sprint Car feature, while the Modifieds will draw for their qualifying race positions and compete in a 60-lap feature event.


All this coupled with games, prizes, contests, give-a-ways (and who can forget ‘Joe the Pizza Dude’ presenting full pies to lucky Thunder fans.) – will round out the evening.  Fans are always encourage to visit the pits after the races for an up close meet and greet with their favorite drivers.


The Thunder on the Hill Racing Series has presented  111 events since 1990,  paying out in excess of $3.7 million dollars  at the Grandview Speedway located on Passmore Road in Bechtelsville, PA   NAPA Auto Parts, the long standing Series Sponsor will have a picnic celebration at the first turn pavilion, with a large turnout of business partners and customers  attending this event.
