Aug 12 - Final Ladies Night a Big Success

Final Ladies Night a Big Success


08-10-13 MAYETTA, KS - The last of three ladies night, where all ladies get in free, went down in the books at Thunder Hill Speedway Saturday night.  Developmental Services of Jackson County, Inc., who provide day and residential supports to adult individuals affected by intellectual and developmental disabilities in a community based setting, were also special guests at the Speedway. By the smiles on their faces at intermission, I believe it is safe to say they had a fantastic evening with some of the best racing in the area.


The Casey’s General Store IMCA Sport Compact division was the first A-feature event of the evening. This race finds Wade Heller again in the Pit Pass Liquor Victory Lane with Dan Canady, Alex Boyden, Austin Umscheid and Lexi Boyden in the top five.


Kansas National Guard IMCA Hobby Stocks were up next. From the drop of the green flag all the way to the drop of the checker, this race provided some on your feet action. Caution free from the start to  finish. Patrick Thyfault raced his way to the Pit Pass Liquor Victory Lane, as he drove through the field flawlessly. As the checkered flag falls,  it’s Thyfault with the win, chased by Travis Burger, Jacob Crowell, Nicholas Ronnebaum and Mallory Stiffler.



The Belleville Motor Sports IMCA Northern Sportmod division brought the return of the double file restarts. From his seventh row inside starting position, Curtis Dreasher set his sites on the front of the field. When the checkered flag is displayed in this division, it’s Dreasher in the Pit Pass Liquor Victory Lane. A hard charging Luke Stallbaumer took second followed by Bryan Rigsby, Eddie Schwope Jr., and Dusty Leonard.


The Heinen Repair Service IMCA Stock Cars brought three new faces to Thunder Hill Speedway from the State of Colorado. This race is full of hard chargers from the drop of the green flag. Mike Nichols and Jim Powell Jr. both started this race from the fourth row side by side and battled all the way to the final laps. Caution free all the way to the checkered flag, it’s Mike Nichols with the three peat win. Jim Powell Jr. finished second with Travis Tenpenny, Tyler Tipton and Angel Munoz in the top five.


The last division to attack  Thunder Hill Speedway was the BSB Manufacturing IMCA Modifieds.  Derrick Brown and Tom Charles roll to the green flag side by side in row three. Charles and Brown battled continuously for position throughout this A-Feature. In the closing laps, Charles had raced his way to the back bumper of Brown, but as the checkered flag ended this race,  Derrick Brown stood victoriously in the Pit Pass Liquor Victory Lane. Tom Charles, Justin Becker, Kurt Johnston and Scott Brown rounded out the top five.


Racing resumes next Saturday night at the Xtreme Motorsports Clash on the Hill, with all five IMCA classes putting on the best Saturday night racing show in Northeast Kansas. Saturday, August 17th is the 12th Annual Oren Covert Memorial Race.  August is Motorsports Awareness Month,so please be sure to  join us and bring a friend and a cooler!!!
