THUNDER ON THE HILL RACE RESULTS

HOT SUMMER NIGHT LANDS KYLE LARSON IN GRANDVIEW SPEEDWAY VICTORY LANE, POCKETS $7,000

JEFF STRUNK STUNS THE FIELD WINNING MODIFIED MAIN FROM 23RD PLACE STARTING SPOT

BECHTELSVILLE, PA (July 3, 2018) – It was an Independence Day celebration of speed as a capacity crowd witnessed the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series action at the Grandview Speedway will star filled field of local and national driving stars. NASCAR Cup Series driver Kyle Larson invaded to claim the Pennsylvania 410 Sprint Car Speedweek victory – round five of the 10-race stretch, while Jeff Strunk picked up the win in the NASCAR 358 Modified main event. The event was presented by Pioneer Pole Buildings as Larson collected $7,000 for his win and Strunk earned an attractive $3,000 first place prize in the modified feature.

“Such an awesome crowd tonight,” Larson said in Victory Lane celebrations. “It seemed like a pretty exciting race, at least from my seat, every time I went to the top I’d see Greg Hodnett pull to my inside.”

A blind re-draw put James McFadden and Greg Hodnett on the front row of the 35 lap main event. Hodnett – a 9-time Thunder on the Hill winner – quickly jumped to the lead. Larson, who started in the fourth position, moved into contention on the third circuit.

With a 24-car starting field on the one-third-mile, lapped traffic became a factor on the sixth lap, with Larson taking the low-groove and Hodnett taking the high-side to split a lapped car. Larson powered around the bottom claiming the top spot.

The race’s first caution flew on lap 9, while circling the track under yellow James McFadden – running in the third position – pulled pitside to change a right rear flat tire.

Larson took command on the restart with Hodnett giving chase, the two diced high-and-low ticking off laps one-by-one, with Larson riding right up against the outside wall.

“It was such a fine line running right up that high, there’s such a risk of getting into the wall. I was a little nervous,” Larson offered.

With Larson running an extreme outside groove, Hodnett peeked to the inside of Larson’s No. 57 machine – before the two swapped lanes with Larson moving to the bottom and Hodnett on the top.

Then came Christopher Bell.

The 23-year-old Sprint Car ace turned NASCAR driver, used momentum and lapped traffic to close on the leaders forming a three-car fight for the win – but ultimately Bell’s night would end drastically bunching up the field with a right rear flat and collecting Trey Starks.

Larson outgunned Hodnett on the Lap 32 restart leading the final three circuits and collecting a $7,000 payday and his second consecutive NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Series Speedweek victory.

Hodnett would finish in second position, followed by a pair of NASCAR Cup Series superstars Kasey Kahne and Tony Stewart in third and fourth respectively. Danny Dietrich finished in fifth moving from a 12th place starting position.

From a 23rd starting position, Jeff Strunk led the Glenn Hyneman-owned No. 126 to a $3,000 NASCAR 358 Modified payday.

Ryan Watt jumped to the early lead from his front row starting position followed closely by Jared Umbenhaue.. A lap 3 yellow flag slowed the field for the first time.

On the restart, Watt continued on in the top spot with Umbenhauer in second and Craig VonDohren moving into the third position.

The top-three competitors battled side-by-side for the lead, with Umbenhauer slipping past Watt on multiple occasions but unable to hold the top spot.

Lap-by-lap Watt maintained a command on the field with Umbenhauer and VonDohren forming a three car chase for the checkered.

A lap 21 restart offered Strunk an opportunity to pounce, first on VonDohren and then on Umbenhauer one lap later.

Strunk raced outside Watt’s No. 14W on the 23rd lap and finally completed the pass after multiple attempts. Strunk would go on to claim his 13th NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series win and his first since 2015.

Watt settled for second place, Craig VonDohren finished in third, Jared Umbenahuer in fourth, and Doug Manmiller in the fifth position.

BECHTELSVILLE, PA (July 1, 2018) – Good friend to Grandview Speedway and Thunder on the Hill, Ben Moyer will be remember in a very special way on Tuesday night, July 3rd when the 410 Sprint Speed Week Series and the 358 Modifieds take center stage at the Grandview Speedway.

In the 35 lap 410 sprint feature, the Hard Charger Award will be presented in the memory of Ben Moyer. The award will be 100% funded by race fan donations.

If you would like to make a contribution to the Ben Moyer Hard Charger Award, please contact the Low, Down and Dirty gang at the pre-race Meet & Greet at the front gate of the Grandview Speedway on Tuesday night, July 3. Others collecting donations include The Beer Hill Gang, Matthew Miller, Scott Diehl, Brian Whippy Whitman, Eric Whitby, Todd Tenetylo and Tim Rutherford. Currently, over $400 has been collected for the Ben Moyer Hard Charger Award and the payoff is expected to go much higher with additional donations to be collected on Tuesday night.

For the sprint cars, top regional drivers are expected as well as some surprise entries from the national racing scene. The modifieds will have a strong roster, highlighted by Craig VonDohren, Brett Kressley, Ryan Watt, Jeff Strunk and Billy Pauch Jr just to name a few.

NASCAR driver Kyle Larson was the winner of this event in 2017, his only victory at a Thunder on the Hill event at Grandview. Ryan Smith, the “Kunkletown Kid” has quickly become a favorite 410 driver for the Grandview crowd. Smith has come so close to scoring that first Thunder win on numerous occasions and he’ll be cheered on by many to lock down that first coveted Thunder on the Hill victory on Tuesday night.

For July 3, Ryan Smith will have his hands full with challenges from Freddie Rahmer Jr., Greg Hodnett, Danny "Double D" Dietrich, Alan Krimes, Brandon Rahmer, JJ Grasso, Lucas Wolfe, Brock Zearfoss, Kyle Moody and Ryan Taylor to name a few.

THUNDER ON THE HILL RACING SERIES

NAPA AUTO PARTS & PIONEER POLE BUILDINGS PRESENT. . .

PENNSYLVANIA 410 SPRINT SPEED WEEK SERIES ($7,000 to win) & 358 MODIFIEDS ($3,000 to win) IN THUNDER SERIES DOUBLE HEADER TUESDAY, JULY 3 AT GRANDVIEW

BECHTELSVILLE, PA (June 19, 2018) – It’s one of the most anticipated events of the racing calendar and for the 24th year the Pennsylvania Posse elite group of racers charge towards the high banks on the hill to salute sprint car racing in the Keystone state.

NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series plays host to the Pennsylvania Sprint Car Speedweek on Tuesday, July 3 at Grandview Speedway in Bechtelsville, PA. The Speedweek event is presented by Pioneer Pole Buildings and features the 410 Sprint Cars and the NASCAR 358 Modifieds, in an exciting doubleheader.

The Grandview Speedweek event features a 35-lap Sprint Car A-Main -- the fifth race of a ten-race stretch for the winged warriors. Drivers from across the region will compete for a $7,000 winner’s share. Tenth place will pay $1,050 with $400 to start the A-main.

Also on the card, Grandview’s own NASCAR 358 Modifieds battle in a 30-lap event, with $3,000 up for grabs.

Time Trials for the 410 Sprint Cars will open the show on Tuesday, July 3 at 7:30 PM. The pit gates will open at 2:30 PM and the Grandstands will open at 5:00 PM. Fans can up-close to the drivers and their mighty machines with the Low Down and Dirty Meet and Greet kicking off at 5:00 PM.

General Admission Adult tickets are $28, Children ages 6-11 are $10, and Under 6 is Free of charge! Pit admission is $35, and no license is required.

With no regular Sprint Car action, drivers from all of the central Pennsylvania hotbeds are anxious to get on the neutral ground that Grandview provides. Expected entrants include Danny Dietrich; Greg Hodnett, an 8-time winner at Grandview Speedway; Lucas Wolfe, Ryan Smith, Freddie Rahmer, Brandon Rahmer, and Alan Krimes.

In 2017, a late race incident with leader Ryan Smith handed the top spot over to NASCAR-star Kyle Larson, who would go on to claim the Grandview Speedway Speedweek victory.

The Grandview small-block Modified stars will be out in full force defending their home turf: Brett Kressley, Craig VonDohren, Jeff Strunk, Jared Umbenhauer and Doug Manmiller.

Advance tickets are on sale now and may be ordered by calling 443-513-4456. Please provide your name and the number of tickets requested. Tickets may be picked up and paid for on race night after 4:00 PM. Advance ticket holders may enter the grandstands at 4:30 PM, one-half hour prior to the sale of General Admission tickets. Advance tickets will be available until 9 AM on race day. General Admission tickets go on sale at 5 PM.
