The NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill season finale is set for Saturday night, October 16th when the House of Thunder Halloween Party and Grandview Thunder 5-25's will close out the 2010 season.  The spooky program will include the five feature spectacular showcasing the 358 Modifieds, URC Sprints, ARDC Midgets, Sportsman and the Legends cars each racing in a 25 lap feature event.  Added to the program will be the Vince's Towing Legends Owners Race and the Garden State Vintage Stock Cars with the Monster Smash Demo Derby closing out the racing program.  Gates will open at 4 PM with the first of five feature events taking the green at 6 PM.   In the event of rain, Sunday, October 17 will be the rain date with the show getting underway at 4 PM.
Plenty of local talent will fill the Grandview Speedway pits to include Duane Howard of Oley, PA, winner of nineteen feature events this season in the BPG Racing/Chad Sinon Motorsports entry.  In the URC Sprints, JJ Grasso and Curt Michael continue their season long battle in chase of the 2010 Rislone Championship title.  The title will be decided the Weedsport Speedway this weekend  but  Grandview will serve as  the final battle ground of 2010  as URC closes out their season.   For the ARDC Midgets, Steve Buckwalter is always a favorite at Grandview and don't count out Billy Pauch Jr, who always enjoys giving Buckwalter a run for the money.   Brad Brightbill could lock down the Thunder  on the Hill Sportsman Championship but he'll be challenged by Bob Lineman, Kyle Weiss and sportsman title seeker Craig Whitmoyer.   The Legend's have an all star cast as well to include Justin Grim, Josh Morrow and Scott Gobrecht.
It's a great night of racing with a lot of variety plus a few treats and treats as well.  
Don't forget, the "best dress" in attendance will be invited to join in the always joyous victory lane photo shoot at the end of the night.
