LOCAL FAVORITES HOWARD, LAUBACH, GODOWN, STRUNK, HIRTHLER, VONDOHREN TO TAKE ON THE BEST OF DIRTcar IN 13TH ANNUAL 100 LAP TRAFFIC JAM


The NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series returns to the Grandview Speedway this Tuesday night when the cars and stars of DIRTcar take on the local favorites in the 13th Annual 100 Lap TRAFFIC JAM for Big Block Modifieds. Gates will open at 5 PM with qualifying taking the green flag at 7:30 PM. The Big Block Modifieds will complete in time trials, a series of heat races along with a consolation all leading up to the 100 lap $6,000 to win TRAFFIC JAM. Also on the program will be a twenty lap Sportsman invitational feature along with a feature event for the Garden State Vintage Stock Cars. Plenty of fan fun is planned, included the annual "Fan Fest" that we do for this always special event. Weather permitting, the TRAFFIC JAM starting line-up will be called to the homestretch for driver introductions. During that time, the grandstand race fans are invited to go onto the speedway to meet their favorite drivers and grab an autograph before the drop of the
en flag.

Local favorites Duane Howard, Rick Laubach, Ryan Godown Jeff Strunk, Kevin Hirthler and Craig Vondohren are busy doing their homework, working on the right combination to land Grandview's victory lane at the end of the 100 lap battle. DIRTcar will bring their best including Rite Aid 200 winner Matt Sheppard of Waterloo, NY. Always a threat to pocket the cash on the hill is Brett Hearn, the defending winner of the Traffic Jam along with Billy Decker, Steve Paine, Dale Planck, Pat Ward, Billy Dunn, Michael Storms, Danny and Alan Johnson and Roger Phelps to name a few.

A field of twenty-four sportsman stock cars will be on hand to compete in a twenty lap feature event. All eyes will be on Craig Whitmoyer and Brad Grim the two drivers who ran side-by-side for countless laps in the previous sportsman feature that was eventually won by Whitmoyer. A guest starter in the June 15 sportsman feature will be Jimmy Blewett.

A special Super DIRTcar Series "Champions " autograph session will kick off the pre-race activities behind the main grandstands at 4:45 PM. Past winners of the TRAFFIC JAM are expected to be part of the meet and greet and include Jimmy Horton, Brett Hearn and Billy Decker. Also behind the grandstands you'll have the opportunity to meet some of the Sportsman Young Guns, sponsored by BFP Specialty and Joe Adams Lettering

Fans are also invited to take part in the Inside/Out Promotion, an activity that allows general admission fans to watch the warm-ups from inside the fourth turn. It's totally FREE and a real experience to feel the ground rumble when the 800 horse power big block modifieds put the pedal to the metal. To take part, just sign up at the Will Call window before 6:30 PM.

A beach ball bounce, the Rhyme Time Competition and the introduction of THUNDER-0, a new fan interactive activity will also spark some fun on race night.
