By Edward Anschutz
(Sturgeon Bay, WI) June 4, 2014- Race fans will be able to get autographs from their favorite drivers this Saturday June 7 at Thunderhill Raceway. Dan Lewis Photography will have a surplus of checkered flags for purchase to put those signatures on. The autograph session will take place at intermission.
The night is being brought to you by Jim Olson Motors of Sturgeon Bay. A brand new GM 602 Crate Engine will go to one lucky racer in the IMCA Sport Mod or IMCA Hobby Stock division at the 2014 banquet courtesy of Jim Olson Motors.
A $200 bounty has been put on Sturgeon Bay Street Stock driver Billy LeMieux for anyone who can cleanly beat him and take home the feature win. The $200 is being added to the winner’s purse. LeMieux has three feature wins in a row to start the season. He led the division last season with five feature wins and seven heat race wins. If LeMieux wins again, $100 will be added and the bounty continues to the next weekend of racing. Should LeMieux not finish the race, the bounty will continue.
“WISSOTA Street Stocks will be legal to run but must be 100 percent WISSOTA legal. Thunderhill Street Stock rules are available on the track’s website.
“We’ve kept the rules very open to allow for any area Street Stock to be able to race here with little or no modification in 2014,” said Edward Anschutz, a representative of Thunderhill Raceway.
