HOUSE OF THUNDER HALLOWEEN PARTY TO CLOSE OUT 2008 AT GRANDVIEW SPEEDWAY
ON SATURDAY, OCTOBER 18. . . . . . .
JEFF STRUNK LANDS A MIDGET RIDE, MANMILLER TO DRIVE A LEGEND CAR, KENNY ADAMS JOINS URC FIELD AND ED AIKIN EYES MODIFIED RIDE
The 2008 NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series will close
out the 2008 racing season at the Grandview Speedway on Saturday night,
October 18 with the Annual House of Thunder Halloween Party & the
Grandview Thunder 5-25's. In typical Halloween fashion, the five
division program will include the Nasty NASCAR Modifieds, the Spooky
Sprints of URC, the Mischievous Midgets of ARDC, the Ghostly Legends
and the 600cc Monster Modifieds. Each division will compete in a
twenty-five lap feature plus an added treat, the ARDC Wingless Midgets
will also compete in a twenty lap feature that is a make-up from a June
rain out. And lets not forget, always a favorite of the fans is the
return of the Garden State Vintage race cars. Plan to attend the season
finale of features only at Grandview Speedway on Saturday night, October
It's the crazy season and you can always expect, the unexpected at this
event. Modified champion Jeff Strunk will be an added entry in the ARDC
Midget feature driving the Bryan Kobazar owned #49, usually driven by
Billy Pauch Jr. This is a dream ride and with the vast experience that
Jeff Strunk has at the Grandview Speedway, he is sure to put on quite a
show. Doug Manmiller, runner-up in Grandview points will again drive a
Modified along with a Rolling Thunder Legend car. In August, Manmiller
was the show competing in four of the 5-25's on that program. Kenny
Adams a top 360 Sprint driver from Malibar, FL is expected to be in the
field driving the Pat Palladino #99. URC top gun Ed Aikin just may be
returning to Grandview on October 18 to compete with his URC sprint car
and perhaps he'll take a seat in one of the top modified cars as well.
Anything can happen and I'm sure more will, before the first green flag
falls on Saturday night, October 18 at the Grandview Speedway.
Gates will open on race night at 4 PM with the first feature event of
the night taking the green flag promptly at 6 PM. General admission
prices are $20 for adults, $5 for children 6-11 and children under the
age of 6 will be admitted FREE. The pit fee is $25 and a license is not
A field of more then one-hundred race cars will compete in the six
feature event program, racing for a total payout to exceed $30,000.
Only the top drivers from each class will be invited to this event, a
program that has become very popular with the race fans.
In true Thunder on the Hill style, there will be plenty of fun for the
race fans. They promise plenty of treats and no tricks, just a well
run show that will spotlight five divisions of dirt track racing
competing in six feature events in one night. The best part of the
night, there is no qualifying, just plenty of feature event racing and
the popular Garden State Vintage race cars.
For the race fans, you are encouraged to dress-up for the Halloween
Party. For those who come in costume, you are always invited to be part
of the joyous victory lane photo with all the nights feature winners.
Thunder on the Hill will again offer the Inside/Out Promotion, where
fans can watch the warm-ups from the infield. Interested? If so, on
race night, just sign up at the Will Call Window by 5 PM.
