Tuesday night, June 5 the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series will present opening night of the 6th Annual AMSOIL Eastern Storm for the USAC wingless sprint cars. When USAC gets to the “hill”, you’ll see wheel-banging, cars bouncing off the wall, wheelies and three wide racing lap after lap, it’s just what they do best and for the competitors of USAC, this is just the norm. When you bring this group to an un-forgiving high banked bullring like Grandview Speedway, you’re in for a treat. The AMSOIL USAC wingless sprints are coming to Pennsylvania and New Jersey for the annual EASTERN STORM and the series opens at the Grandview Speedway on Tuesday night, June 5 and the event will carry a rain date of Wednesday, June 6.

Also on the program will be the ARDC wingless midgets, competing in qualifying events and a 20 lap feature. In the event of rain, Wednesday night, June 6 will be the rain date.
