Thunder on the Hill has developed a reputation of presenting unique and different racing events that incorporate different divisions of dirt track racing from near and far. Thunder on the Hill is anything but, the same old thing. The coming season will be no different!
The Sunday, May 24 Grandview Thunder 5-25’s will mark the 115th Thunder event, since the series started way back in August of 1990.
The NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series of 2015 will continue on Tuesday night, June 2 with the 9th Annual EASTERN Storm. The USAC Non-Wing Sprints & ARDC Non-Wing Midgets will take part in the Annual Jesse Hockett Classic. This “rub rails and rooster tails” show is always a crowd pleasing event as the USAC stars are not afraid of the Grandview Speedway outside boiler-plate. If you have not seen a USAC show at Grandview, it’s a show you will want to see.
The third Thunder event will showcase the return of the DIRTCar Modifieds joined by a complete show of the Grandview 358 Modifieds making up the 18th Annual Traffic Jam on Tuesday night, June 16. This is a first time ever presentation of these two premier divisions coming together on the “hill”. The DIRTCar Modifies will battle 60 laps for $6,000 to win as the 358 Modified chase a $3,000 payday in a 30 lap feature. It’s a Double Down for Modifieds Night with an added $1,000 Bonus from Pioneer Pole Buildings for any driver who can Double Down and with both features. It’s a possible $10,000 payday if one driver wins both feature events.
