RACING RESUMES AT THE HILL
-13 MAYETTA, KS - After a week off,
Thunder Hill Speedway Xtreme Motorsports
Clash on the Hill swung open the gates for another evening of great racing. The
Conkwright family and staff were prepared for a great night of racing action. Side
by side racing was the norm again at the Hill. Several classes would race three
and four wide on their way to the checkered flag.
General store IMCA Sport compact division took to the track first with Canady
starting from the back of the pack and quickly working his way toward the front.
Wade Heller and Canady would battle for
position at the front for several laps before the checkered flag fell. Wade
Heller stood victoriousl in the Pit Pass Liquor Victory Lane followed by Dan
Canady, Alex Boyden, Austin Umscheid and Lexi Boyden.
Kansas National Guard IMCA Hobby Stocks always provide some great side by side
racing action and tonight was no different. Patrick Thyfault quickly made his
way to the front and would never look back. Brian stich started fourth row
inside, but by the time he raced his way through traffic he just could not run
down Thyfault. The drop of the checkered flag has Thyfault in the Pit Pass
Liquor Victory Lane, chased by Brian
Stich, Mallory Stifler, Kelly Pihl, and Scott Garst.
Midwest Outlaw Vintage Racing series returned to the four tenths of a mile that
make up Thunder Hill Speedway. It is always great to see the cars of yesterday
still competing in this great sport. These guys always put on a great
exhibition race. At the checkered flag it was Dennis Fair standing in the Pit
Pass Liquor Victory Lane with Jack Simmons, Chris Heitman, John Wilhite and
Allen Guthrie in tow.
Belleville Motor Sports IMCA Northern Sportmod division was action packed with
superb racing action. Kurtis Pihl started second row outside and quickly made
his way to the front. Pihl and Luke Stallbaumer would wage a battle of epic
proportions at the front of the field. A
late race caution finds both of those drivers at the back of the field and Kyle
Olberding taking command. When the checkered flag drops on this race, it is
Klyle Olberding in the Pit Pass Liquor Victory Lane. Filling out the top five
in this battle was Curtis Dreasher, Adam Patch, Rick Dreasher and Greg Metz.
Heinen Repair Service IMCA Stock cars put on a fantastic show. This class also some
new faces to Thunder Hill Speedway as well. Christine Brown started outside front row and
used the position to her advantage as she raced her way around the speedway. As
the race gets to the closing laps, a spin by Brown brings out the caution. As
racing resumes it’s Jim Powell Jr. at the front taking the checkered flag, with
Brian Labonte with a strong second place finish. Powell takes the checkered
flag for a spin, turning a quick donut before returning to the Pit Pass Liquor
Victory Lane. Matt Haid, Michael Pepper
and Jacob Schmutz finished out the top five.
BSB Manufacturing IMCA Modified feature provides some of the best racing action
in the area.
Burch sets the pace from the inside front row and used that starting spot for
all it was worth. Starting from the fifth row inside was Jordan Grabouski, who
methodically races his way through the field. He used every inch of Thunder
Hill Speedways perfectly prepared racing surface all the way to the front. There
was three and four wide racing all through the field as this group raced to the
checkered flag. At the checkered flag, Jordan
Grabouski stands victoriously in the Pit Pass Liquor Victory Lane, followed by
Corey Burch, Tom Charles, Mike Petersilie and Justin Becker.
