Thunderhill Raceway looks to past, present and future


KYLE, TX (April 22, 2010) – On April 18, 1998, Thunderhill Raceway (Kyle, TX) opened its gates for the first time.


This Saturday night (April 24), Thunderhill Raceway (THR) will celebrate its 12th anniversary by giving give its fans a glimpse of the past, present and future.


Tying the past to the present, the track will recognize its first race winners (from 1998) on the front straightaway during opening ceremonies – along with other drivers who raced during the track’s first event.


Mary Ann Naumann, THR’s Owner and Promoter, knows firsthand about the track’s history and has been a part of it since the beginning. After watching her family race and actually becoming a driver herself at the former Longhorn Speedway (Austin, TX), Naumann switched over to the track management side of the fence in 1999 by joining Thunderhill Raceway as its General Manager. She became the Owner and Promoter in 2007.


“I know Thunderhill Raceway has a rich racing history, with many loyal race teams and fans,” commented Naumann. “I feel that it’s important to look back on what got us to where we are today, while moving forward at the same time to build on our future.”


In anticipation of its future, the track will also recognize the 2010 rookies during the opening ceremonies.


“We want to present our future stars to the fans and give them an opportunity to get to know them better,” said Naumann. “We had an autograph session during season opener a few weeks ago, but the fans didn’t know which drivers were new to stock car racing or those who were advancing to a new level of racing. I think the fans will be pleasantly surprised when they see how some of these rookie drivers perform on Saturday night.”


Ten classes are scheduled to run on Saturday night’s action-packed agenda. Grandstand gates will open at 5 pm, and the heat races will begin at 6 pm. Opening ceremonies will take place immediately after the heat races have been completed.


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 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
