Twenty-Six Mid-Atlantic Sprint Series competitors were eagerly ready to take part in the Thunder on the Hill Racing Series events at Grandview Speedway on Sunday. But with the forecast drastically take a turn for the worse, officials were forced to cancel the ‘Triple Thunder Thriller’ event.
“We were really happy with the number of teams that supported us today, even with threat of rain,” Eddie Wagner, Regional Director of MASS said. “The quality of talent we had in the pits tonight was sure to shape up to be a great night of racing, that’s for sure. I can’t thank the Thunder on the Hill management and officials enough for trying to make a go at it, and for including us in their show tonight.”
Fans, drivers and teams who attended Sunday’s rained out event can use their wristbands for any future Thunder on the Hill event “of equal value or they may pay the additional fee for a show of great value” as per the Thunder on the Hill website. The Mid-Atlantic Sprint Series will be back for a Thunder on the Hill event on October 14th for the ‘Madhouse Halloween Party’.
With Big Diamond Speedway cancelling the June 2nd appearance of the MASS 305 Sprint Cars due to rain outs plaguing their season and special events that they’ve had to continuously postpone, the series will shift their focus on its first ever race at Delaware International Speedway on Saturday, June 10th.
“We are really excited for our first ever appearance at Delaware International,” Wagner stated. “I’ve raced myself at DIS when I ran with URC a few years ago, and I think this track is the perfect place for Sprint Cars. The surface is very racy to where you can use both the top and bottoms of the speedway to your advantage, making the show always exhilarating for the fans and the drivers as well”.
