URC SPRINTS JOIN GRANDVIEW THUNDER 5-25'S ON TUESDAY, AUGUST 12
INVITES ANNOUNCED FOR 600 SPRINTS
The NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series has two big events
planned and "thunder action" will kickoff on Wednesday night, July 16
when the DIRTcar Big Block Modified 100 Lap TRAFFIC JAM takes to the
one-third mile high banked Grandview Speedway. Race time is set for
7:30 PM. Following the 11th Annual TRAFFIC JAM, the fan's favorite
GRANDVIEW THUNDER 5-25's will invade Grandview Speedway on Tuesday
night, August 12. This features only format will showcase the URC
Sprints, 358 Modifieds, 600cc Sprints, Rolling Thunder Legends and the
600cc Modifieds. NO time trials, NO heat races NO qualifying of any
kind, just five awesome feature events getting underway at 7:30 PM.
The URC sprints, 358 Modifieds, Legends and 600cc Modifieds will all
determine their starting field and line-up based off their current
points. For the 600cc Sprints, twenty-four drivers are invited to
complete. The list of invited drivers is below. Drivers are asked to
confirm their participation by calling 443-513-4456. Be sure to leave
your name, car number and hometown if you are planning to complete.
Deadline to confirm your entry is July 20. Following that date, other
drivers will be added to complete the field. All entries will do an
open draw on race night to determine their starting line-up.

Advance tickets are on sale at this time for the Wednesday night, July
16 DIRTcar Big Block Modified 100 Lap TRAFFIC JAM. 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
Also, 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
21811. Advance tickets paid prior to the race date may be picked up at
the WILL CALL Window on race night. Advance tickets will also be on
sale at the Grandview Speedway on Saturday night, July 12.
Don't forget, Grandview Speedway will be in action every Saturday night
with a program of NASCAR 358 Modifieds and Late Models getting underway
at 7:30 PM. Grandview Speedway is located on Passmore Road, just off
Route 100 in Bechtelsville, PA, ten mile north of Pottstown. Please
