The 25th Anniversary season of the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series offers one more date on the schedule with the popular Grandview Thunder 5-25’s and House of Thunder Halloween Party making up the Saturday night, October 18 racing program at the Grandview Speedway. Race time is set for 6 PM with gates opening at 4 PM. This unique and fan friendly racing program offers “feature events” only. You’ll enjoy a five division racing program without the endless hours of qualifying. The five division program will include the 358 NASCAR Modifieds, the URC Sprints, the ARDC Midgets, the Sportsman and Legend cars, each competing in a 25 lap feature event. Also on the program will be the Blast from the Past Vintage Stock Cars and a MONSTER SMASH Demolition Derby to close out the show.
In the 25 lap NASCAR Modified feature, the winner will earn $3,000 with third paying $1,000, fifth $700 and $260 being paid just to start the feature event. The modifieds, URC Sprints, ARDC Midgets and sportsman will use timed warm-ups to determine the starting line for each feature. The Legend cars will use their current point standings with an invert to make-up their feature line-up.
An over of events will be released shortly along with a complete list of pre-entries. A minimum of 100 cars are expected to take part in the Grandview Thunder 5-25’s.
The Annual Halloween Party will also take place with several tricks and treats for those who attend. Race fans are encouraged to dress up for the Halloween Party to be eligible for some of those special treats. Social Media Director Jay Dugan is planning some fun for all.
