Thunderhill Raceway Schedule of Events

Recommended Posts

Shown below is the Thunderhill Raceway (Kyle, TX) Schedule of Events for Friday, May 21, and Saturday, May 22 – Operation Interdependence® (OI) Night at the Races. The Grand Stocks will be the featured class for this event, and the TSRS Late Model main event will be the OI featured race.


Speaking of Operation Interdependence®, please remember to bring quart-sized baggies (several boxes, if possible) to help with the OI packing and to show your support of our troops.


We will use the same race format that was introduced for our last race on May 8. All drivers, except for the Dwarf Cars, must sign in at the garage office no later than 3:00 p.m. on Saturday. All classes will qualify, starting at 4:15 p.m., and draws and inversions for starting positions will be done following post-qualifying tech. The main events will follow the opening ceremonies that are scheduled for 6:00 p.m.


The lap counts on the main events have not been included in the schedule. The number of laps for each main event will be determined by the car counts in each class or series – the more cars that are entered, the more laps that will be run. The number of main event laps and time limits for each class will be announced at the drivers meeting and posted on the pit board and in the garage.


We know we’ve been making some big schedule changes over the past few weeks, and we hope you (our drivers) will continue to understand that we’re trying to be fair to you, while ensuring our fans get a great entertainment value for their money. It’s a tough balancing act.


If you have any questions or need additional information, please feel free to contact me at debbie@thunderhillraceway.com.

We do have a chart that we will be using as a staff guideline that will show the minimum number of laps for each class, e.g., 1-12 Grand Stocks will be 20 laps, 13-18 Grand Stocks 25 laps, etc. However, we hesitate to send it out or post it because it’s just a guideline at this point. Different situations may affect the lap intervals. For example, if there are 11-12 cars using the situation above, we might want to be more flexible in adding more laps because it’s the featured class that night. Or, as another example, if the minimum number of laps is 30 and only 5 cars show up, we may want to change the laps on the chart based on a really low car count.


We will have the chart in the garage office if anyone wants to view it, but as I mentioned above, it’s more of a guideline than a set rule. And, similar to the changes we've been making in our scheduling, the chart will probably continue to need tweaking as we progress through the 2010 racing season.
