Sportsman Modifieds

The Sportsman Modifieds made their debut at Thunder Hill Raceway with only six of the nine cars able to take the green for the 30 lap feature. Jerry Schild in a car owned by former NASCAR driver, Bobby Hillin jr got the lead at the drop of the green. Yellow was out quickly when John Hendricks had trouble and broke the right front suspension. Under yellow Andrew Wojtaszcyk pulled off leaving four cars running.


Schild got out front again as green came back out and began to motor away from the second place battle between Mike Williams and H.E. Naumann. That fight for second continued throughout the race while Schild ran off to take the easy win.

Street Stocks


The Thunder Hill Raceway Street Stock feature is always one the most competitive races of the night. In the 30 lap main, polesitter Chris Birmingham got out the early lead with three wide racing in the pack around the slowing car of Kris Wilson. With the top drivers in the back by inverted points, last race winner Bobby Teer jr worked his way into the top ten on lap 4. By lap 8 Birmingham and David Webster had checked out with a gap back to Tracy Tschoerner, Dale Caswell and David Hassinger.


The battle was on for sixth as a seven car pack running door to door battled lap after lap swapping positions and paint. Teer and Clint LaFont finally broke out that mad pack on lap 13. Up front the leaders were into traffic as the race came to halfway. At the mid point, Birmingham, Webster, Caswell, Hassinger and Tschoerner headed the top five. Webster began to take peeks on Birmingham, first on the high side on lap 17, then falling back in line.


Yellow waved on lap 18 when Steve Richardson and Tschoerner made contact sending both into the turn 1 grass. Going back to green, the lead duo had a couple lap cars between them and Caswell. On the restart, Birmingham went into turn 1 and immediately slid up the track with a flat right front tire. This gave the lead over to Webster for lap 19. Caution was quickly back on when Arden Smith rolled to a stop close to the track in the infield.


Webster got away from Caswell on the restart, but Doug Ayers got turned around in turns 3-4. LaFont was sent to the tail for contact. Back under green Teer was trying to use the high side running side by side with Ayers for fourth. Teer then got along side Hassinger for third before things got crazy. Caswell and Hassinger made contact sending Caswell up the track. Teer was forced to take evasive action and hit the grass in turn 1. Caswell then stopped in turn 2 to bring out a yellow.


On the restart, Webster got a car length over Hassinger, Teer, Ayers and Cary Stapp, who had finally worked his way up. From there Webster was able to slowly inch away from the second place battle and score the victory.

Hobby Stocks


Dave Loveday grabbed the point at the start of the 20 lap THR Hobby Stock feature, but veteran Gary Chancellor quickly got by using the high side to make the pass on lap 2. A multi-car tangle in turn 4 brought the caution. Back under green, Joey Tschoerner got sideways allowing Cody Smith to get a run on he and Gary Chancellor jr. to take third. Chancellor jr followed taking fourth. Roy Loveday slowed on lap 6 while running second and pulled off a lap later.


C. Smith caught Chancellor on lap 15 and began looking high for the lead. This gave Chancellor Jr the chance to get under C. Smith. At halfway the top five were Chancellor, Chancellor jr, Kevin Bowen, C. Smith and Tschoerner. A father/son battle then began for the lead when Chancellor Jr began to try the high side on his dad. The two were side by side for the lead on lap 15, but that came to an end when Jr. Spun out on lap 17. Chancellor jr caught a break when he continued but Arden Smith stalled on track to bring out yellow.


Chancellor jr was given his spot back going to last completed lap. The green, white, checker finish saw Chancellor hold off his son and the rest of the field to grab the win.

Grand Stocks

The always entertaining Grand Stock main saw Richard Fitch take the point early. Jim Lynch jr used the high side to get along side Fitch on lap 2 and take over the top spot on lap 3. Jody Wayne Stuart got by Claud Jordan on lap 3 to take fourth. Fitch and Bryon Reed battled for second on lap 4, with Stuart joining the fight.


Both Reed and Stuart got by Fitch on lap 6 for second and third. Jordan moved past Fitch a couple laps later for fourth. As Lynch jr and Reed broke away, Jordan caught Stuart for third. The two went three wide as they split a lap car with Jordan taking the spot. Up front it was Lynch jr putting a little space between he and Reed as the white flag waved. At the checkers it was Lynch jr scoring his second win of the season.

Allison Legacy

Eric Brunner and Matt Hodge led the 17-car, 50 lap Allison Legacy Series race to green. Hodge was able to grab the lead on lap 1 using his track experience on the rookie Brunner. In the pack fast qualifiers, Trey Mitchell, Dillon Spreen and Jeff Weir began working through traffic towards the front. A double spin by Dillon Sampson in turn 2 and Taylor Brandes in turn 3 brought out the yellow on lap 5.


Shortly after the restart. Brandes again got turned around to bring out yellow on lap 12. Cautions breed cautions was again the rule when Kris Kerr spun a lap after the restart. Coming to take the yellow the front stacked up with Spreen, Mitchell and Arden Vikre making contact and spinning in turn 4. As the race resumed, you guessed it, yellow again. This time Jake Kruger spun in turn 2 with Brandes and Joe Jones spinning to avoid Kruger. John Martin had nowhere to go and clipped Jones.


Finally back to green again, Spreen and Weir got by Vikre for third and fourth. That duo caught John Riley and went three wide for second down the front stretch with Weir getting second and Spreen taking third. Weir, winner of the last THR Legacy Series race caught the leader Hodge and was putting pressure on him for the lead. The leaders caught traffic with the top four running nose to tail dicing their way through slower cars.


The final yellow waved for another spin by D. Sampson. Weir continued to keep the heat on Hodge as the race went back to green. With five to go, Weir tried to duck inside going into turn 1. Hodge closed the door making contact with Weir who cut down the right front and was forced to pit. Kruger, Vikre and Riley then had their own fight going for third as the laps wound down. On the final lap Kruger and Riley made contact for third with Vikre and Allen Sampson spinning in the melee behind them. But it was Hodge holding off Spreen to grab the checkers.
