THUNDER ON THE HILL RACING SERIES

HEALTH & SAFETY OF FANS AND COMPETITORS FIRST, NAPA AUTO PARTS THUNDER ON THE HILL RACING SERIES PREPS FOR 31ST SEASON AT GRANDVIEW SPEEDWAY

BECHTELSVILLE, PA – When the 2020 racing season at Grandview Speedway begins, NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series officials are hoping to offer their entire scheduled season of events at the Bechtelsville, Pennsylvania dirt track. We are experiencing unprecedented times and we ask everyone to follow the recommendations to keep yourself, family and friends safe until we see our way out of this pandemic.

“We hope to be back racing in time for our May 24 Modified Traffic Jam event, but our priority right now is the health and safety of our fans, competitors, and staff,” Co-promoter Bob Miller said.

Due to the guidelines recommended by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention to combat the spread of the COVID-19 virus, Grandview Speedway is on a temporary delay to the start of their racing season.

Major sports leagues, NASCAR, and IndyCar Series are on hold indefinitely and several major sporting events have been cancelled.

“We’re all very excited about the events prepared for the 31st season of NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series events, and currently all of our events are planned to continue,” Miller said.

“I recently took part in a call with USAC and all participating tracks on their schedule and the Eastern Storm is still planned, along with the return of the USAC Midgets later in the year,” said Miller. The plan is to evaluate the situation every two week.

The 2020 NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series is scheduled to open on Sunday, May 24, with the 23rd Annual Modified Traffic Jam joined by the Sportsman.

The second event of the Thunder on the Hill schedule is Tuesday, June 9 when the USAC AMSOIL National Non-Wing Sprint Car Series returns for Eastern Storm. In a statement released on March 25 USAC said, “USAC and its partner race track are working on a revolving two-week outlook on the upcoming races on the schedule and not wanting to make a decision too soon or too late.”

The NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series continues on Tuesday, June 30 with the Pennsylvania Sprint Car Speedweek Hodnett Cup for the 410 Sprint Cars; the USAC Midgets return for the Ken Brenn Midget Masters on Tuesday, August 4; Levan Machine and Truck Equipment presented the All Star Circuit of Champions on Thursday, August 27 – all of these events include NASCAR 358 Modifieds as the co-headlining class. The series wraps up on Saturday, October 17 with the Mods at the Madhouse Triple 20s for the Modifieds.

“Right now, the best thing we can do is stay home, with our families and be safe. We will keep everyone updated as necessary and urge everyone to follow along at www.thunderonthehillracingseries.com and on our social media channels.”

SMITH FABRICATIONS BACK AS SPONSOR OF 13TH ANNUAL QUAKER STEAK & LUBE DIRT TRACK HEROES CAR SHOW

Absolutely Free. . . Come one, Come all to the Quaker Steak and Lube 13th Annual Dirt Track Heroes Car Show Friday, March 6 to Sunday, March 8 at the Palmer Park Mall in Easton, PA. The three day event will showcase various race cars from different divisions to include race cars of current day as well as past racing days. This popular event will include a tribute to Doug Hoffman and the great racing legacy he left behind. Event organizers are also dedicating this event to the racing promotional team of Steve and Ed Pados, both instrumental in the past success of this show.

Once again Smith Fabrications, the home of the Stage One Modifieds, will play an important role in this year's edition of the show. The Smith name has remained synonymous to the local racing scene for the past six decades as father Roy Smith was a pioneer in the golden era of racing with his signature numbered 555 race cars that had many top drivers wheeling the equipment such as Freddy Adam, Bobby Bottcher, Billy Tanzosh, Johnny Cabral and Richie Smith among them. "Rapid Rich" has utilized his years of knowledge while steering a race car to come up with a scaled version of the full sized Modified cars he drove to many wins in his driving career. The cutting edge, sleek looking Stage One Modified is the finished product from Smith Fabrications and the cars are real eye-catchers when on display or at speed.

The Stage One Modified is a beautiful piece of craftsmanship. Smith Fabrications and the Stage One Modifieds return for their ninth season as a nightly sponsor for the event and have participated in all of the Mall events to date. For additional information regarding the purchase or rental of a Stage One Modified, log-on to their website at: www.smithfabrications.com or contact Richie by phone at: 610 462 4302.

An actioned packed schedule of events for fans of all ages is in the final stages of completion and event organizer Justin Beltrame is excited for the show. “I cannot thank everyone for all the support they have given to help put this show together as I feel we have a great show in store for the whole racing family”. “ I feel we have a little something for everyone in the racing family this year to enjoy, we will still have the interview sessions and autograph sessions that was a signature piece of Pados brothers shows throughout the years”, noted Beltrame.

Some key highlights will be the 2nd Annual Premio Foods Sausage Eating Contest with top prize of $100 donated by Pete Telesco of Premio foods. Also, a tire changing competition will take place thanks to Steve Young and the Dirt Track 187 Media Sportsman car.
