THUNDER ON THE HILL RACING SERIES

LEVAN MACHINE & TRUCK EQUIPMENT PRESENT THURSDAY NIGHT, AUGUST 23 AT GRANDVIEW SPEEDWAY:

ALL STAR 410 SPIRNTS THUNDER CUP CHAMPIONSHIP IN SMOKE ON THE HILL 2, TONY STEWART TO MAKE THIRD START IN THUNDER SERIES

BECHTELSVILLE, PA (August 11, 2018) – A champagne celebration with a two-foot-tall gold cup trophy chalice, confetti scattered all over Grandview Speedway victory lane, and one winner – the best-of-the-best in 410 Sprint Car racing.

This defining moment has been the highlight of the three previous NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series Thunder Cup events and will happen again on Thursday, August 23 when the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions comes to Grandview Speedway for the Levan Machine & Truck Equipment Thunder Cup: Smoke on the Hill 2.

Created in 2015, the Thunder Cup marked the second premier 410 Sprint Car event to hit the Bechtelsville, PA one-third-mile speedway.

The inaugural race was won by ‘Double D’ Danny Dietrich in a thrilling last lap battle where Dietrich barely edged passed Greg Hodnett to claim the victory. Following Dietrich, the sons in a pair of ‘father-son’ Thunder on the Hill winning combinations claimed Thunder Cup wins. In 2016, it was Stevie Smith – not to be confused with Inaugural Thunder on the Hill Race Winner, Steve Smith – scored the win aboard the Leffler Energy No. 51, owned by Fred Rahmer. In 2017, it was the younger Rahmer, Freddie Rahmer Jr. leading that same No. 51 to Grandview Speedway Victory Lane.

Expectations are high for this year’s Thunder Cup iteration, as well. With a stacked field of Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champion competitors, former NASCAR Cup Series Champion Tony Stewart, and the determined drivers from the Pennsylvania Posse, no one knows what to expect on the cars hit the Hill.

The Levan Machine & Truck Equipment Thunder Cup marks the second 2018 appearance of the 410 Sprint Cars. The earlier event was won by NASCAR Cup Series star Kyle Larson, with Greg Hodnett, Kasey Kahne following closely behind. With a NASCAR off-weekend would could Larson and Kahne come chasing the Thunder Cup?

Joining the 410 Sprint Cars in action are the NASCAR 358 Modifieds in a 30-Lap, $3,000-to-win showdown. Grandview’s premier racing division always provides for some hard-racing and wheel-to-wheel excitement.

Levan Machine & Truck Equipment presents the 4th Annual Thunder Cup: Smoke on the Hill 2 featuring the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions 410 Sprint Cars in a 35-lap, $5,000-to-win event alongside the NASCAR 358 Modifieds takes place on Thursday, August 23 with a 7:30 PM start time.

JERSEY RUSH VIII

THE JERSEY RUSH VIII IS A NO GO FOR 2018, EVENT TO RETURN TO NEW EGYPT SPEEDWAY IN 2019

NEW EGYPT, NJ (August 1, 2018) – For seven years, the Pioneer Pole Buildings Jersey Rush thrilled race fans with an exciting double header of 410 Sprints and Modifieds however, the forecast of threatening weather on Tuesday night, July 24 stopped the eighth running of the event. After scrambling to find a date that would accommodate race teams, tracks, and fans, the Jersey Rush promotional team announced today that the 2018 running of the event will not be rescheduled.

"We hoped to find an opening in the racing schedule that would make things easy for both the race teams and race fans," Co-Promoter Bob Miller stated. "With the amount of midweek shows it was difficult to find a date that didn't conflict with another event."

The Jersey Rush will return to New Egypt Speedway in 2019 and will carry the sponsorship of Pioneer Pole Buildings.

Jersey Rush is co-promoted by Lenny, Danny, and Davey Sammons and special event promoter Bob Miller.

We thank everyone for their past support of the Jersey Rush and we especially want to thank the many drivers that were pre-entered for the event. The show was sure to deliver one of the strongest roster of competitors in the history of the event. We’re looking forward to doing it again in 2019 at New Egypt.

RAIN STOPS PIONEER POLE BUILDINGS JERSEY RUSH VIII AT NEW EGYPT SPEEDWAY TUESDAY NIGHT, MAKE-UP DATE SOON TO BE ANNOUNCED

A weather front stuck in New Jersey for three days with more to come has forced the postponement of the Jersey RUSH VIII set to take place at the New Egypt Speedway on Tuesday night, July 24.

Rain and thunderstorms, which entered the area on Saturday forcing postponement of many racing events including a program slated for New Egypt, failed to leave the area on Monday producing wet grounds. With the front expected to stay through Wednesday, promoters Bob Miller, Len, Dan and Davey Sammons decided it was in everyone’s best interest to cancel the event ahead of time to save unneeded travel expense and loss of work.

“We are especially disappointed losing this race date as we may have assembled the strongest car count and name drivers since the start of the Jersey Rush back in 2011,” said Len Sammons. “We were hoping to see some possibility of a break in the weather, but heavy storms continued on Monday night giving the track crew no chance in producing the excellent racing surface the drivers and fans deserve.”

Jersey Rush VIII combines the only New Jersey appearance of 410 Sprint Cars, plus Modifieds and Sportsman for a full night of action on the racy D-shaped clay oval. The promotional group is actively looking for a make-up date to ensure that we do not have a conflict with other special events.
