THUNDER ON THE HILL PLANS STRONG 30TH ANNIVERSARY SEASON AT GRANDVIEW SPEEDWAY. . . . .
NAPA RETURNS AS SERIES SPONSOR, USAC SPRINTS & MIDGETS, PA SPRINT SPEED WEEK, ALL STARS SPRINTS & MODIFIEDS ARE ON THE SCHEDULE

BECHTELSVILLE, PA (JANUARY 17, 2019) – Five exciting events have been scheduled for the 30th Anniversary season of the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series at Grandview Speedway, in Bechtelsville, PA.

A diverse schedule of events includes three nationally touring racing circuits plus, Thunder staples like the Modifieds and the 410 Sprint Cars in a jam-packed agenda – that is highlighted by two lucrative $10,000-to-win events.

The 2019 season kicks off with a $10,000-to-win event on Tuesday, June 11. The USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car Series competes in the Jesse Hockett Classic. ‘The Macho Man’ Brady Bacon is sure to put on a show, the Broken Arrow, OK native has scored victories in the past two USAC non-wing Sprint Car events at Grandview Speedway. Alongside the USAC competitors is the 358 Modifieds – Grandview’s top weekly racing division. Gates open at 5 PM with race time set for 7:30 PM.

The twenty-fifth scheduled Pennsylvania Sprint Car Speedweek event takes place on Tuesday, July 2. Nothing is more American than 410 Sprint Cars and the fans on ‘The Hill’ know how to celebrate our nation. NASCAR Cup Series star, Kyle Larson has claimed victories in the past two Grandview Speedweek events – but with $10,000 up for grabs Pennsylvania’s famed PA Posse is ready to keep that payday local. The 358 Modifieds join the 410 Sprint Cars for a thrilling double header.

The NOS Energy Drink USAC National Midgets’ first recent appearance at Grandview Speedway takes place on Tuesday, July 30. Fans have been clamoring for the Midgets to hit the high-banks in Bechtelsville and you can be sure they’ll be ready for a good time. Familiar Grandview Sprint Car faces like Brady Bacon and Tyler Courtney challenge 2018 National Midget Champion Logan Seavey – and most likely some local flavor in what is expected to be an action-packed event.

The Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions return to Grandview Speedway on Thursday August 22 for the 5th Annual Levan Machine and Truck Equipment Thunder Cup. In 2018, Aaron Reutzel drank champagne from the two-foot tall gold chalice with confetti flying in the background. The best-of-the-best in 410 Sprint Car racing will be on hand for their second appearance at the Berks County dirt track.

The season closes out on Saturday, October 19 with the House of Thunder Halloween Party featuring the 22nd running of the Modified Traffic Jam.

MODIFIED ENTRY LIST CONTINUES TO GROW FOR WALL STADIUM TURKEY DERBY WEEKEND

WALL TOWNSHIP, N.J. ~ The list of Tour Type and Wall/SK Modified stock car teams planning to compete in the Thanksgiving weekend Turkey Derby continues to grow! The current list is compiled of teams that have filed entries, secured tires for the weekend and participated in two Saturday practice sessions on November 10 and 17.

If well over 80 race teams from all divisions that were in the Wall Stadium Speedway pit area for the November 17 final practice session are any indication, the 45th running of the Turkey Derby stock car classic could feature a record setting field in both quality and quantity. Nearly 70 cars from all divisions tested on November 10.

The Turkey Derby is presented on Friday, Saturday and Sunday of Thanksgiving weekend during the daylight hours.

Among the Tour Type Modified stock car standouts expressing interest in the annual classic are multi-time Turkey Derby winner Jimmy Blewett of Howell who tested his Wall and Tour Type Modifieds on November 17. Also seen turning fast laps on November 17 were Holmdel's Andrew Krause, Andy Jankowiac of Tonawanda, N.Y., Tony Ricci of Westbrook, Maine, Matt Swanson of Acton, Ma., Anthony Sesely of Matawan and Pennsylvania's Bobby Jones.

More entries are expected during the final days leading up to the race.

As in the past, more entries can be expected during the final week before the race and on race weekend itself. Also, several drivers will make their final determinations about which, or perhaps both, paved track Modified divisions they will compete in during this final week before the event.

On Saturday, November 24, the pit area will again open at 6:30 a.m. with practice at 8:30 a.m. and grandstands opening at 9:30 a.m. Qualifying will start at 11:00 a.m. with main events set for 1:00 p.m. The Tour Type Modifieds are set for a 150-lap, $5,000 to win feature race while the speedway’s Wall/SK Modifieds will compete in a 100-lap feature race that offers $5,000 to the winner. Dirt Modifieds will also be on the Saturday card in a 50-lap feature and the Green Flag Driving Experience Legend Cars will compete in a 30-lapper. The TQ Midgets will race on the inner oval in a 30-lap race.

The Turkey Derby weekend will then wrap up on Sunday, November 25, with pit gates opening at 10:00 a.m., practice starting at 11:00 a.m., grandstand opening and qualifying at noon and main events set for 1:00 p.m. The Legend Cars will be competing in a 40-lapper and the Factory Stocks will race in a 50-lapper.
