BECHTELSVILLE, PA – The final event of the 2020 Thunder on the Hill Racing Series is set for Saturday night, October 17 at the Grandview Speedway. A much anticipated event to showcase the Trick or Treat Triple 20’s for the modifieds plus a full program for the sportsman leading up to their 20 lap feature event. Each Modified feature will pay $2,000 to the winner and with thanks to Pioneer Pole Buildings, a $2,500 bonus is posted to any driver who can sweep the three features making the hat trick work $8,500. If one driver wins two features, PPB will add an additional $500 in bonus money. Each feature offers an attractive payoff with $200 being paid to start each feature event.
Some entries eyeing a shot at the sweep include Kevin Hirthler, Doug Manmiller, Kyle Weiss, Keith Hoffman, Brian Hirthler, Justin Grim and Ryan Krachun to name a few of the pre-entries.
As in past years, this end of the season October event will allow both Big Block and 358 Modifieds to compete together in a unique rules package. This special rules package is offered as a ‘treat’ to the region’s competitors, with both American Racer and Hoosier tires allowed for competition, and either Big-Block or Spec Small-Block engines permitted.
