The thirty-fifth season of the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series will open on Tuesday night, May 28 when Levan Machine & Truck Equipment present the Rich Mar Florist High Limit 410 Sprints at Grandview Speedway. The Thunder on the Hill Racing Series is the long- time trend setter for presenting mid-week, high profile special events and It was the Thunder Series who was first to bring the High Limit Racing Series to Pennsylvania and the Northeast in 2023.

Thunder on the Hill is once again on the High Limit Racing schedule and defending race winner, Rico Abreu of St Helena, California will again be in the field on Tuesday night, May 28 to chase the $20,000 first prize to win the 35 lap 410 sprint feature. Abreu won his last two starts at the one-third mile high -bank Grandview Speedway.

On race night, Tuesday, May 28 gates will open at 4:00 PM at the first turn gate for advance ticket holders and general admission tickets will go on sale at 4:30 PM. Qualifying begins at 7:30 PM. In the event of rain, Wednesday night, May 29 will be the rain date with a starting time of 7:30 PM.

As an added incentive for the local drivers, Pioneer Pole Buildings posted a $2,000 bonus for any Pennsylvania Sprint Driver that takes the win in the 35 lap High Limit 410 Sprint event. One of the winningest drivers in sprint car racing is Pennsylvania driver Brent Marks who remains shutout of a visit to the Thunder on the Hill victory lane. Marks plans to change all that Tuesday night, May 28.

The PPB $2,000 bonus is an added eye catcher to lure the best of Pennsylvania to the Hill. Just a few of the local drivers with their eye on the bonus include Danny Dietrich, Freddie Rahmer, TJ Stutts, Tim Buckwalter, Kyle Reinhardt, Lance Dewease, Tyler Ross, Kyle Moody, Ryan Taylor, Tyler Esh and Ryan Smith just to name a few.

After the High Limit event, the Thunder on the Hill Racing Series continues on Tuesday night, June 11 when Pioneer Pole Buildings present the opening night of the seventeenth annual AMSOIL USAC Non-Wing Sprint Cars Eastern Storm joined by the 358 Modifieds. It was Thunder on the Hill and Grandview Speedway that were instrumental in starting the USAC Eastern Storm and brought about the ever growing interest in USAC non-wing racing here in the East.

The USAC traveling tour of non-wing sprints will go 40 laps in the Jesse Hockett Classic paying $6,000 to the winner. For the 358 Modifieds, they will run a series of qualifying events leading up to their 30 lap feature that will pay $3,000 to the winner.
