THUNDER ON THE HILL CONTINUES 19TH SEASON Discount tickets on sale now. . . .
SUPER DIRTcar SERIES RETURNS TO THE HILL FOR 11TH ANNUAL TRAFFIC JAM WEDNESDAY NIGHT, JULY 16
Always a popular event on the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing
Series, the 11th Annual TRAFFIC JAM for the DIRTcar Modifieds will
invade the Grandview Speedway on Wednesday night, July 16. Gates will
open at 5 PM with race time set for 7:30 PM. The top big block modified
drivers will try their hand at the one-third mile high banked oval where
non-stop action is second to none. The intensity of any race at
Grandview is felt not only by the drivers, but the race fans as well, so
just plan to be on the edge of your seat for the entire one-hundred
laps. Defending winner Brett Hearn is always a favorite in the TRAFFIC
JAM, winning the event last year after a hard fought battle for some
twenty-five laps with Ryan Godown.
Who will be in the Traffic JAM? Some thirty cars as they look for a
piece of the first turn just after the drop of the green. Look for
DIRTcar stars Billy Decker, Matt Sheppard, Alan Johnson, Gary Tomkins,
Justin Haers, Steve Paine, Danny Johnson, Jimmy Phelps and Dale Planck
as they take on local favorites Jeff Strunk, Duane Howard, Meme
DeSantis, Craig VonDohren, Doug Manmiller, Shawn Reimert, Jimmy Horton,
Billy Pauch, Frank Cozze, Rick Laubach and Ryan Godown just to name a
This event will also be a FAN FUN Night, dedicated to the race fans.
General admission tickets for this event are $22. For a $2 saving, you
may purchase your tickets in advance for $20 or, on race night, just be
wearing a Grandview Speedway, Thunder on the Hill, New Egypt or
Bridgeport Speedway t-shirt and receive a $2 discount when purchasing
your ticket at the front gate. This is just a small way to show our
appreciation, making this show a true value for any race fan at just $20
for adults. Tickets for children 6-11 are $5 and kids under the age of
$6 will be admitted for free. If you are interested in going in the pit
area, the pit fee is $25 and a license is not required.
Advance ticket holders will be permitted to enter the grandstand at 4:30
PM, one-half hour prior to general admission tickets going on sale.
This will allow general admission ticket holders to have their first
selection and choice of seats. But for all others, don't worry, more
then 5,000 seats circle the Grandview Speedway and every seat offers an
up close view of the always exciting action on the speedway. Advance
tickets are always a good idea as the recent July 1st Thunder Show was a
near sellout crowd.
The fans just love the popular Inside/Out Promotion where race fans have
an opportunity to watch warm-ups from the infield. Those spectators
purchasing advance tickets may also sign-up for this absolutely free
activity. Don't be surprised if a guest driver or two joins your group
to watch warm-ups.
Several years back, the Thunder Series introduced FanFest and that will
be returning for the Wednesday night, July 16 event as well. Prior to
the feature event and after the cars are staged on the homestretch,
every child accompanied by an adult will be invited to the homestretch
to meet and greet the 11th Annual TRAFFIC JAM starting field.
Also, one lucky advance ticket holder will be invited to waive the first
green flag of the night, that's right, from the flag stand with the
thundering modifieds roaring underneath.
Special give-aways and other Fan Fun stuff will make this event a night
And don't forget. . . the always exciting Garden State Vintage Stocks
Cars will offer a fine display as well as an exhibition display.
For advance tickets, please make your check or money order payable to
Grandview Speedway. Please send your payment along with your ticket
order to Thunder Series 2008 11747 Winding Creek Drive Berlin, MD
