Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway Set for US Legends Spring Nationals Weekend
Pro Late Models & Super Trucks Will Join Legends & Bandoleros

(Nashville, TN) Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway is ready to rip for the second race weekend of the 2024 season, this coming Friday and Saturday, April 19/20. Both days will feature the US Legends Spring Nationals for the US Air Force Legends and CP Race Wear Bandoleros, while the Pro Late Models and Super Trucks will also race on Saturday night.

The race weekend unofficially begins on Thursday afternoon with Legend and Bandolero practice from 3:00-7:00 PM. Everything then amps up on Friday as the US Air Force Legends and the CP Race Wear Bandoleros take the track for qualifying at 3:00 PM with Pro Late Models on track for practice from 4:30-5:15. Racing begins Friday night at 5:30 with a full program of Legend and Bandolero features.

On Saturday April 20, on track activity begins at 10:00 AM as the Bandoleros and Legends have group qualifying sessions. The Big Machine Vodka Spiked Cooler Super Trucks then hit the track for the first time this season for practice at 11:45 followed by Pro Late Model practice. The Legends and Bandos then have feature events beginning at 1:00 PM in the afternoon followed by qualifying for Super Trucks and Pro Late Models at 3:45 PM. Opening ceremonies will take place at 4:40 followed by another round of Bandolero and Legend features before the Super Trucks and Pro Late Models run the 5/8-mile for their feature events.

Coming into the weekend, eyes will be on Landon Thrasher in the CP Race Wear Bandolero class, after taking the track championship one year ago and winning the opener on April 7. Nicholas Denton, Dylan Faulkner, and Wayne Grubb were the winners in the Legend features at the opener and will be among the favorites this weekend. A strong field of 45+ Legend competitors raced on April 7 with even more expected for this big event.

Championship veteran driver, Michael House, claimed the Pro Late Model win at the opener, charging late in the race. Jackson Boone looked like the man to beat for much of the event before mechanical woes took him out of contention. Ever improving teenager, Dawson Sutton took second place, while Bennie Hamlett rounded out the podium. The Pro Late Models will be running 100 laps Saturday night.

For the Big Machine Vodka Spiked Cooler Super Trucks, it will be their opening race of the season. Tanner Arms won the championship in 2023, followed by Kyle Ivey and Nicholas Formosa.

Tickets for the weekend are $10 for Friday and $12 for Saturday if bought in advance online at nashvillefairgroundsspeedway.racing. Race day prices are $12 on Friday and $15 on Saturday. Discounted prices are also in effect for Seniors and Military, while kids 11 and under are free.

NAPA AUTO PARTS THUNDER ON THE HILL RACING SERIES TO KICKOFF TUESDAY, MAY 28

KUBOTA HIGH LIMIT 410 SPRINTS WILL CHASE $20,000 TO WIN ON THE HIGH BANKS OF GRANDVIEW

 

BECHTELSVILLE, PA    APRIL 18, 2024   . . . . . . The Big Deal, the real deal is fast approaching and the one-third mile High Bank Grandview Speedway is ready.   With two events already taking place at Grandview, excellent track conditions, great car counts and strong fan turnout has set the stage for Tuesday night, May 28.  

 

The NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series opens when the Levan Machine & Truck Equipment present the Rich Mar Florist Kubota High Limit 410 Sprints as they invade the hill with this high profile event paying $20,000 to win the 35-lap sprint car feature.   Also, on the program will be the Vintage Modifieds and Vintage Sportsman each competing in a 15-lap feature event.   As part of this big event, Thunder on the Hill and Kubota High Limit Racing will honor the Keystone State Quarter Midget Racing Club that race in Schnecksville, PA.

 

This is a rare occasion and certainly a special treat for race fans of the Tri-State Area as the Kubota High Limit sprints have limited dates here in the northeast.  In fact, Grandview is just one of two tracks in the area hosting the national 410 sprint touring division.

 

Tuesday, May 28 the top 410 sprint drivers will chase the $20,000 first prize to win the 35-lap Kubota High Limit 410 sprint feature.   Rico Abreu won his last two starts at Grandview Speedway and will be in the hunt once again.   Another driver to watch is Corey Day of Clovis, CA who is currently third in the Kubota High Limit point chase and most recently scored back-to-back Kubota High Limit feature wins.

 

Kubota High Limit Point leader Tyler Courtney is no stranger to the fastest “bull ring” in the East and he’ll be in the field along with multiple World of Outlaw Champion Brad Sweet.  Brent Marks, Jacob Allen and Anthony Macri rank fourth to sixth in the point standings and all three drivers have strong roots here in Pennsylvania.  Marks, Allen and Marci are also looking for their first Thunder on the Hill victory.

 

As an added incentive for the local drivers, Pioneer Pole Buildings posted a $2,000 bonus for any Pennsylvania sprint car driver that takes the win in the 35 lap Kubota High Limit 410 Sprint event. 

The PPB $2,000 bonus is an added eye catcher to lure the best of Pennsylvania to the Hill.   Just a few of the local drivers with their eye on the bonus include Danny Dietrich, Freddie Rahmer, TJ Stutts, Tim Buckwalter, Kyle Reinhardt, Lance Dewease, Tyler Ross, Kyle Moody, Ryan Taylor, Tyler Esh and Ryan Smith just to name a few.

 

On race night, Tuesday, May 28 gates will open at 4:00 PM at the first turn gate for advance ticket holders and general admission tickets will go on sale at 4:30 PM.   Qualifying begins at 7:30 PM.     In the event of rain, Wednesday night, May 29 will be the rain date with a starting time of 7:30 PM.

 

Advance tickets are now available at: www.tickethoss.com.   General admission tickets on race night are $40, children 6-11 are $20, children 5 and under will be admitted for free.   The Pit Fee is $45 and a license is not required.   (Pit tickets are not available on Ticket Hoss).

 

The Thunder Series recently added the Vintage Cars to the Tuesday, May 28 Kubota High Limit 410 sprint show.  We are inviting Vintage Modifieds and Vintage Sportsman to take part in this show.  We ask the competitors of both the Vintage Modifieds and Sportsman to pre-enter by calling 443 513 4456.   There is no entry free but pre-entering will help us in the planning of the show.   Entries shall provide the drivers name, car number division (Modified or Sportsman) and phone number.   Both the Vintage Modifieds and Sportsmen will each have a warm-up and a 15 lap feature.

 

We are adding the Vintage cars to compete during the show when the 410 sprints need some time between events.  Our goal remains to have an efficiently run event that is completed by 10 PM.

 

The NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series is the long-time trend setter for presenting mid-week, high profile special events.   The Thunder Series was the first to bring the Kubota High Limit sprints to the area and it was the Thunder on the Hill series that created the 17 year running of the USAC Eastern Storm.

The prominent Thunder Series will continue on Tuesday night, June 11 when the AMSOIL USAC Non-Wing Sprints and 358 Modifieds star in the Pioneer Pole Building sponsored event.   Also on the roster, Tuesday night, July 2 is the HVAC Partners for Success Pennsylvania 410 Sprint Speed Week, the Hodnett Cup paying $10,000 to win and  will be joined by the 358 Modifieds.

Be sure to say hello to Miss Thunder on the Hill Skylar Kuhl joined by Thunder Girls Kailyn Getz and Maddie Stephens.
