THUNDER ON THE HILL RACING SERIES

NAPA AUTO PARTS CELEBRATES 30TH ANNIVERSARY OF THUNDER ON THE HILL RACING SERIES AT GRANDVIEW. . . . . .

CHRISTOPHER BELL POCKETS $10,000, JEFF STRUNK WINS MOD THRILLER AS GRANDVIEW DEFEATS MOTHER NATURE TUESDAY NIGHT, JULY 2

BECHTELSVILLE, PA (July 2, 2019) – Mother Nature offered a reprieve to race fans Tuesday Night at Grandview Speedway, providing just enough clear weather for Norman, Oklahoma’s Christopher Bell to claim the 410 Sprint Car main event, while Boyertown, Pennsylvania’s Jeff Strunk scored the win in the Modified portion of the double-header event. A big crowd turned out for the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill event attracting a field of thirty 410 sprint cars and thirty-eight modifieds. The battles were plentiful all night but the biggest story was how the Grandview Speedway track crew fought back after a thunder stormed drenched the speedway surface. The outstanding work by the track crew with help from the modifieds quickly returned the speedway back into race ready conditions after a one hour and fifteen minute rain delay. As the checker flag fell on the modified feature, the rain once again began to fall, but the show in its entirety was presented.

Bell used up every inch of the racetrack on his way to a $10,000 payday as part of Pennsylvania Sprint Car Speedweek. This was Bells first ever Thunder on the Hill Racing Series victory.

“I had a hard time figuring out where the car worked best, I just kept moving around,” Bell explained in post-race victory lane ceremonies. “I almost crashed a couple of times.”

Pole-sitter Lucas Wolfe and Bell raced down to the drop of the green, but action slowed quickly for a six-car tangle that sidelined Pennsylvania Speedweek point leader, Freddie Rahmer.

Bell didn’t bat an eye on the ensuing restart racing around Wolfe and disappearing from the competition – a man on a mission, Bell encountered lapped traffic on the 8th circuit dodging slower cars with his sight set on the winner’s purse.

James McFadden, aboard the Kasey Kahne Racing No. 9 machine, slid passed Wolfe on the 12th lap and it didn’t take long for him to rope in Bell and challenge for the lead. The red flag flew just prior to the halfway when Jessie Attard got upside down in turn three.

Bell had his hands full on the restart with McFadden and Lance Dewease right on his rear bumper.

“I struggled just passed halfway, I used every inch of the race track and tried to block those guys behind me,” Bell explained.

McFadden would make one last-ditch effort for the victory, but ultimately settled for second, Lance Dewease finished in third, Lucas Wolfe in fourth, and past Thunder Cup winner Aaron Reutzel finished in fifth.

Christopher Bell’s sweep included the Quick Time with a lap of 11.617. Heat Races were won by Aaron Reutzel, Lucas Wolfe, Danny Dietrich, and Kyle Reinhardt. Mark Smith scored the win in the B-Main.

Brett Kressley and Mike Gular started on the front row of the NASCAR 358 Modified feature event, with Gular gaining control of the top spot. Gular dominated the first half of the 30-lap event clicking laps off with a strong contingent of Modified drivers behind him.

The top three competitors were door-to-door in the closing portion of the event, with Gular, Kressley, and Strunk all moving to the point in a single lap. Strunk would score the upper hand threading three-wide between Gular and Kressley.

Strunk led the final ten laps of the feature event with Kressley well within striking distance and riding the rear bumper of #126 on the final lap. Kressley rolled home in second, Mike Gular finished in third, Craig VonDohren in fourth, and Duane Howard rounding out the top five. Kressley worked his way to victory lane, but this time to congratulate the great run by Strunk. The thirty lap modified win was worth $3,000.

NASCAR Modified Heat Races were won by Don Norris, Jr., Steve Young, Brett Kressley, and Ryan Watt. Consolations were won by Craig Whitmoyer and Glenn Strunk.

Rain delayed the start of the event with 410 Sprint Car Time Trials finally rolling off at 8:45 PM, the rain fell again at the drop of the checkered flag.

The 30th Anniversary season of the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series continues on Tuesday, July 30 at Grandview Speedway with the USAC NOS Energy Drink Midget National Championship event dubbed Ken Brenn Midget Masters. NASCAR 358 Modifieds are also on the card.

THUNDER ON THE HILL RACING SERIES

NAPA AUTO PARTS PRESENTS. . . . . .

ALAN KRIMES, THE RAHMER BROTHERS, LUCAS WOLFE & T.J. STUTTS EYE THE $10,000 PRIZE AT THUNDER ON THE HILL TUESDAY NIGHT, JULY 2 AT GRANDVIEW

BECHTELSVILLE, PA JUNE 23, 2019 . . . . . . . . . . . There is a big prize on the line Tuesday night, July 2 at the Grandview Speedway when the Pennsylvania 410 Sprint Car Speed Week Series invades “the hill”. It’s all part of the 30th Anniversary season for the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series and $10,000 will go to the winner of the 35 lap 410 sprint car feature event. Making this event even bigger, the 358 NASCAR Modifieds will be on the program with $3,000 going to the winner of the 30 lap modified feature. In the 2018 running of this event, NASCAR star Kyle Larson won the sprint feature as Jeff Strunk won the modified feature after starting last in the field of twenty-four cars.

The 410 sprints always attract the cream of the crop. Alan Krimes will be in the field looking for his first Thunder victory. A few years back, Krimes was in the perfect spot to score the win but a flat tire denied him of a visit to victory lane. Lucas Wolfe is an early entry as well. Wolfe was the 2007 Thunder on the Hill Champion but has not won a Thunder on the Hill feature as yet. Lucas wants to change that Tuesday night, July 2. The Rahmer Brothers, Freddie and Brandon are pre-entered and ready for Grandview. Their father Fred is a nine time Thunder on the Hill feature winner, Freddie won the All Star event in 2017 and Brandon hopes to add his name to the Thunder on the Hill winners list.

And along came T.J. Stutts. A few years back, Stutts set fast for the night and was a contender for the win when mechanical problems sidelined him from action. Stutts knows the fast way around Grandview and is always considered a contender to collect the $10,000 pay day.

The NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series will also showcase the 358 NASCAR Modifieds on Tuesday night, July 2. Ryan Watt was the winner of the last two Modified Thunder events and he’ll be looking for three in a row.

On Tuesday night, July 2 gates will open at 5 PM with warm-ups at 6:45 PM. The 410 sprint cars will open the show with time trials followed by the 358 modified and 410 sprint qualifying.
