Thunderhill Raceway moves ahead with racing plans for next year


KYLE, TX (November 16, 2009) – After some uncertainty on the future of its property lease, Thunderhill Raceway (THR) in Kyle (TX) has reached a tentative agreement with the landowner.


“We’ve had several meetings with the landowner, and negotiations have gone well,” said Mary Ann Naumann, THR’s Owner and Promoter. “A proposal has been drafted, and everything is now being processed through our attorneys. We expect to sign the final agreement in the next few days.”


As a result of the agreement, the management of Thunderhill Raceway plans to move full-speed ahead with its plans for the 2010 racing season.


“I’m really excited that this new agreement gives us the opportunity to race next year and hopefully beyond then,” commented Naumann. “We’ll continue to provide updates as we move forward with our plans for next year.”


To get ready for the 2010 season, Thunderhill Raceway is planning a drivers’ meeting on Saturday, December 12, at 2 p.m. In addition to giving the drivers an opportunity to register for next year, the rules for all classes – including TSRS (Texas Super Racing Series) – will be distributed at the meeting.


A pre-season registration discount will be offered to drivers who sign up for next season at the meeting. Drivers will also be given the opportunity to get the discount by registering early on line via Pay Pal (more information to follow).


Prior to the meeting, tentative 2010 schedules for both Thunderhill Raceway and TSRS will be released, hopefully within the next couple of weeks.


“We also want to remind everyone about the 2009 THR/TSRS Awards Banquet that’s scheduled for Saturday, January 16,” added Naumann. “Our drivers, staff, media and sponsors deserve to be recognized, and this banquet will be a great opportunity to honor our champions.”


The awards banquet will be held at the Manchaca Firehall & Community Center at 1310 FM 1626, Manchaca, TX 78748. The banquet will begin with a Social Hour at 5 p.m., followed by an all-you-can-eat catfish dinner at 6 p.m., an awards ceremony at 7 p.m., and live music from 10 p.m.-midnight.”


Thunderhill Raceway is a 3/8-mile, D-shaped asphalt oval track that’s located at 24801 IH-35, on the access road just north of San Marcos (TX) near Yarrington Road (Exit #210). Information on Thunderhill Raceway may be found on the track website at www.thunderhillraceway.com.

What great news!


The racing community is grateful that the Lord has blessed us with Mary And and H. Anyone motivated by financial gain or on an ego trip would have ditched this deal a long time ago. Yes, she loves racing and so does H, but it's more than that with those two. The phrase "unselfish love" comes to mind.


We racers love to moan and groan, fuss and fume, and, yes, even sabotage when things don't go our way, but it's time to put away that behavior. It's time to keep our complaints to ourselves, roll up the sleeves and pitch in to make this deal work at THR.


Do you have a car in the garage gathering dust because you don't like this or that? Get it out, read the rules, call Jack and be ready for the first car show in the winter.


Are you bad-mouthing those who work their tails off to make this racing thing work? Stop.


Do you have some talent or resource that the track can use? Call Debbie and let her know what you can bring to the table.


It's time.
