LUCAS OIL MIDWEST LATE MODELS RETURN TO THUNDER HILL JUNE 16
One of the highlights of the Northeast Kansas racing season is the annual arrival of the Lucas Oil MLRA Late Model Series at Thunder Hill. The match of the fastest dirt track stock cars and the fastest high-banked track in the area always makes for spectacular racing, and this year’s edition should be no exception.

"We're really excited to be racing at Thunder Hill," commented Promoter Harriett Chancellor. "The Conkwright family has just done terrific things with Thunder Hill Speedway..It's a one of a kind place and a favorite amongst our drivers."

John Anderson is the current points leader, and is trailed by perennial MLRA star David Turner, Kevin Sather, Will Vaught, Jesse Stovall, Mark Dotson, Terry Phillips, Chad Simpson, Bill Leighton, and Bryon Allison. Anderson has won several races at Thunder Hill, and will be looking to defend his point lead.
