NAPA AUTO PARTS, COMDIAL TELEPHONE COMMUNICATIONS & LEE MYLES TRANSMISSIONS RETURN TO THUNDER ON THE HILL, 21st SEASON SET TO OPEN WEDNESDAY, MAY 26
Since August of 1990, a total of ninety-one racing events were presented under the Thunder on the Hill Racing Series banner. From the World of Outlaws Sprint Cars to DIRTcar Modifieds, plus the USAC Sprints, ARDC Wingless Midgets, NASCAR Modifieds, 410 Sprints and the URC Sprint Cars are just some of the different divisions that make the Thunder Series so wildly popular. One thing you should not expect at a Thunder Show, is more of the same. When the seven Thunder events kickoff 2010, look for the return of their key sponsors, NAPA Auto Parts, COMDIAL Telephone Communications and Lee Myles Transmissions & Car Care, and they'll all be present on Wednesday night, May 26 with the return of the Keystone Cup Speed Week 410 Sprint Series joined by the Sportsman Stock Cars. Gates will open at 5:30 PM with race time set for 7:30 PM.
The 410 Sprints remain the "jewel" division of the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series, and why not? After all, it was the 410 Sprints the opened the Thunder Series in that sensational first outing in August of 1990, when Stevie Smith rallied home the winner with a capacity crowd on hand. The opener will showcase the 410 sprints in time trials, qualifying events and a $5,000 to win 35 lap feature event.
Popular sprint car driver Joey Saldana just might have said it best. "Driving a 410 sprint car at Grandview is like flying a jet fighter plane in a high school gymnasium".
The Sportsman Stock Cars will be on the Wednesday, May 26 program and participation is open to all competitors. Heat races, a consolation and a 20 lap feature will make up the Sportsman portion of the program.
Admission prices for this event will remain the same as prior years. Adult general admission will be $20, Children from 6-11 will be $5 and children under the age of six will be admitted for free. If you are planning to go into the pits, the pit fee is $25 and a pit license in not required.
The NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series is all about fun and excitement. For the race fans, be sure to sign-up for the Inside/Out Promotion, where race fans can watch warm-ups inside the fourth turn. If you've never done it, you owe it to yourself to feel the ground rumble when the 410 sprints take the green flag.
The always fun Rhyme Time will return, asking fans to write a rhyme about a favorite or, not so favorite driver. The track announcer will read your rhyme and based on the applause of the crowd, prizes will be awarded to the winner.
Other fun things include the Beach Ball Bounce, JOE the Pizza Dude, the live singing of the national anthem, fireworks on the feature parade lap and the always joyous victory lane celebration that is complimented with champagne spraying and confetti flying. After the drop of the checker flag, fans are invited to go in the pit area and meet your favorite drivers and get an up close look at the race cars.
