Thunderhill Raceway event postponed by Hurricane Ike


KYLE, TX (September 10, 2008) – Thunderhill Raceway was all set to present the A-Line Auto Parts Night at the Races this Saturday (September 13), but Mother Nature looks like she will be disrupting any outdoor activities planned for this upcoming weekend.


Hurricane Ike is expected to make landfall on the Texas coast as early as Friday afternoon, and most of South and Central Texas will likely feel its effects – including Thunderhill Raceway.


Saturday’s racing events – including the 75-lap feature race by the TSRS Late Models – will be postponed until the following Saturday, September 20.


Mary Ann Naumann, Thunderhill Raceway’s Owner/Promoter, feels that making this early decision will help the racing teams deal with the uncertainty and possible effects of the hurricane.


“Although it may seem that we’re making our decision to postpone a bit early, we feel it’s in the best interest of the safety of our teams,” said Naumann. “Most of the current weather predictions indicate tropical force winds and heavy rains from the coast all the way up through Kyle and North Texas. We just don’t want to do anything to jeopardize the safety of our fans and race teams. I’ve even heard that some of the race teams have already headed to the coast to help move out their families.”


Thunderhill Raceway’s agenda for the following Saturday, September 20, will feature the local classes and the ever-popular TSRS Late Models and JRA Kids’ Bike Races. Qualifying and heat races will begin at 6 p.m.


The 12th Annual Allstate Texas Stock Car Spectacular is scheduled for September 26 and 27 – highlighted by the TSRS Late Models, Texas Pro Sedans, ExpressJet Pro Modifieds, Pro Trucks and Dwarf Car Racing Series of Texas.


The last event scheduled at Thunderhill Raceway for 2008 will be a Crash-A-Rama that will be held on Sunday, October 26, starting a 2 p.m. – featuring a Demolition Derby, Enduro Race, Bus Race, Chain Race and Car-Boat Race.


Thunderhill Raceway is a 3/8-mile, asphalt D-shaped oval track that’s located at 24801 IH-35, just north of San Marcos (TX) near Yarrington Road (Exit #210).
