The Thunder Series will also salute the Living Legends of Grandview, with many well known drivers and owners who competed at the Grandview Speedway attending the Wednesday, July 15 event. Past drivers from URC and ARDC will be part of the celebration as well, meeting the fans in the grandstands as a pre-race activity. Drivers and Owners interested in taking part, may call the Thunder Series for more information at 443-513-4456.

The Modifieds and URC Sprints will compete in a series of qualifying events leading up to a twenty-five lap feature. For the ARDC Wingless Midgets, they will compete in a 25 lap feature. The highlight of the night will be the triple 25 lap feature events.
