9-14 -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. 


Caseys 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.


The 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.


The 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.


The 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.


The 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.


The BSB Manufacturing IMCA Modified feature provides some of the best racing action in the area.

Corey 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.
