Langhorne, PA — July 5, 2008 – By Bob Miller, Thunder On The Hill PR
Always a popular event on the Thunder on the Hill Racing Series, the 11th Annual TRAFFIC JAM Advance Auto Parts Super DIRTcar Series event for Big-Block Modifieds will invade the Grandview Speedway on Wednesday night, July 16.
Gates will open at 5 PM with race time set for 7:30 PM. The top Big-Block Modified drivers will try their hand at the one-third mile high banked oval where non-stop action is second to none. The intensity of any race at Grandview is felt not only by the drivers, but the race fans as well, so just plan to be on the edge of your seat for the entire 100 laps.
Defending winner Brett Hearn is always a favorite in the TRAFFIC JAM, winning the event last year after a hard fought battle for some twenty-five laps with Ryan Godown.
Who will be in the Traffic JAM? Some 30 cars as they look for a piece of the first turn just after the drop of the green. Look for DIRTcar stars Billy Decker, Matt Sheppard, Alan Johnson, Gary Tomkins, Justin Haers, Steve Paine, Danny Johnson, Jimmy Phelps and Dale Planck as they take on local favorites Jeff Strunk, Duane Howard, Meme DeSantis, Craig VonDohren, Doug Manmiller, Shawn Reimert, Jimmy Horton, Billy Pauch, Frank Cozze, Rick Laubach and Ryan Godown just to name a few.
This event will also be a FAN FUN Night, dedicated to the race fans. General admission tickets for this event are $22. For a $2 saving, tickets may be purchased in advance for $20 or, on race night, just by wearing a Grandview Speedway, Thunder on the Hill, New Egypt or Bridgeport Speedway t-shirt and receive a $2 discount when purchasing your ticket at the front gate.
This is just a small way to show our appreciation, making this show a true value for any race fan at just $20 for adults. Tickets for children 6-11 are $5 and kids under the age of $6 will be admitted for free. Tthe pit fee is $25 and a license is not required.
Advance ticket holders will be permitted to enter the grandstand at 4:30 PM, one-half hour prior to general admission tickets going on sale. This will allow early admission ticket holders to have their first selection and choice of seats. But for all others, don’t worry, more then 5,000 seats circle the Grandview Speedway and every location offers an up close view of the always exciting action on the speedway. Advance tickets are always a good idea as the recent July 1st Thunder Show was a near sellout crowd.
The fans just love the popular Inside/Out Promotion where race fans have an opportunity to watch warm-ups from the infield. Those spectators purchasing advance tickets may also sign-up for this absolutely free activity. Don’t be surprised if a guest driver or two joins your group to watch warm-ups.
Several years back, the Thunder Series introduced FanFest and that will be returning for the Wednesday night, July 16 event as well. Prior to the feature event and after the cars are staged on the homestretch, every child accompanied by an adult will be invited to the homestretch to meet and greet the 11th Annual TRAFFIC JAM starting field.
Also, one lucky advance ticket holder will be invited to waive the first green flag of the night. That’s right, from the flag stand with the thundering modifieds roaring underneath.
Special give-aways and other Fan Fun stuff will make this event a night to remember. And don’t forget. . . the always exciting Garden State Vintage Stocks Cars will offer a fine display as well as an exhibition display.
