The racing was great as Kwik Kar Oil & Lube sponsored the racing at the best little ¼ mile dirt track on the planet! The fans were amped up and the drivers seemed to feed off the energy as they put on another fantastic night of racing.


Special guests at the speedway were the Brazos Mini Sprint Association. They may be small in size, but they are very big in excitement! Thank you from everyone at Texas Thunder Speedway for the great racing by these fine racers!


After the heats were over, the Jr Mini Stocks were the first to hit the track for their feature race. These car are completely legal to race in the Cottman Transmissions Mini Stock class. The youngsters did a fine job in running their ten lap feature race. Though he tried hard, last weeks winner, Colton Monroe, came up one spot short in his effort at being the tracks first repeat winner this year. Brad VanMarter would hold him off and take his first victory of the season.

The Kwik Kar Street Stocks were the next to take to the track. Eighteen of these fast and furious machine raced fifteen laps in their feature race. Joe Fuller would take the lead, getting by outside pole sitter Albert Wininger Jr on lap 9 as the leaders were in very heavy lapped traffic. Wininger would chase Fuller hard, but would come up one car length short in his bid.

The Corbin & Associates, Atty's I. M. C. A. Stocks were next to thrill the fans in their fifteen lap feature race. Last weeks winner, Eric Jones had problems in his heat race and had to start shotgun on the sixteen car grid. He would make hay while his could, getting to 5th place by lap 8, and then to 4th by lap 10. But his charge to the front would get blunted, and he wouldn't get any higher. As the white flag waved, it was Shad Stevens and Jacob Dunn battling hard for the win, with Stevens just nipping Dunn by a ½ car length.

The newest I. M. C. A. class, the I. M. C. A. Southern SportMods to race at Texas Thunder had ten cars in their fifteen lap feature. On the drop of the green flag, Mike McDougal made a power move around Eric Tomlinson in turn two and took the lead. Tomlinson would be under tremendous pressure the rest of the race as three cars battled all race long for the second place. In the end, McDougal would be first to the checkered flag, with Tomlinson holding off Kevin West and Trace Crawford.

The Cottman Transmissions Mini Stocks had a ringer in the field as they came out for their night ending fifteen lap feature. I. M. C. A. Modified driver, PJ Egbert was driving his brother, Colten Monroe's Jr. Mini Stock. It would be the former National I. M. C. A. Modified Rookie of the Year and track champion first ever start in a Mini Stock. Billy White would get the early lead from his third starting spot before he would spinning out in turn 2. On the restart, PJ Egbert would get the lead in turn 2. Lap 13 would see week one winner, Travis Zwiefelhofer and Mike Autrey having contact in turn two, with Zwiefelhofer coming out the better in that exchange. Last weeks winner, Julie “Kelly” Zwiefelhofer would end her night stuffed into the front straight wall just at the flag stand. The young lady would be fine. T. Zwiefelhofer would throw everthing including the kitchen sink at Egbert but couldn't find a way around. egbert proved that he can drive just about anything as he pulled into victory lane for his first ever Mini Stock win.

This is the cheapest way to go racing! You don't need to have any knowledge in car building, as you can buy one, race ready for $500 dollars.


Also next week the racing is sponsored by The National Banks of Central Texas. Be sure to bring the kids, as Ace Hardware brings them the Easter Egg Scramble.

Not sure I understand your question.


Are you mixing Mini Stocks with Texas Twisters?


The Cottman Transmissions Mini Stocks can't be bought, but they are a claimer class (all classes at Texas Thunder are claimer classes).


Click on this link (http://www.texasthunder.com/rules_general.html) and scroll down to the ENGINE CLAIM section for complete details.


The Budweiser Racing Texas Twisters, on the other hand, the entire car, minus driver saftey equipment is subject to being bought. The other major difference is that ANYONE can buy the car, not just competitors. And you don't get your choice of cars, just the winners.


And to this date, no Mini Stock engines have been claimed (nor any from other classes), and the Texas Twisters haven't made their debut yet.


If you need any other info, please call the promoter Pat Wilson @254-290-6262


Or PM me, and I will give you my cell phone number.
