Track Improvements

These are the improvements to be made to Thunder Mountain Raceway in 2017, in order of importance:

1 — We will be grinding off approximately 2” of old asphalt 14’ wide and replacing it with new asphalt from the end of the concrete launch pad to 60’ past the finish line.
2 — We will be grinding the surface of the concrete launch pad to level and improve the surface of the concrete from one end of the concrete launch pad to the other
3 — We will be adding a sand pit type emergency shut down pit at the end of the track
4 — We will be installing a basic LED lighting system to improve the visibility in the down track area, staging area and the stands.

We now have a lot of the financing in place thanks to some great racers and fans but we still need help from the rest of the racers, fans and club members. The more money we can raise the better job we can do each of these projects. These improvements will not only make our facility better, safer and faster but will also attract out of town racers and extend the life of our facility and the sport. Now is the time for all you RACERS, FANS and MEMBERS to come forward and help us with this huge project.
Don’t forget this is all for YOU.

Race 5

Well race fans the final race of the season is complete and I have the results here. (better late than never)
Saturday KOH/Gamblers race:
29 racers registered Saturday for the $1000 KOH race.
After several rounds of very tough racing it came down to the “Bill and Bill Show” Bill Boult facing off against,..
..wait for it.. Bill Hutton!, Thunder Mountains very own Tow Truck/Safety Safari operator and fire marshal.
The final was won by Bill Boult (congratulations) but the crowd favorite was for sure Bill Hutton wading through the field in “Old Brown”, Doug Dippels ’77 Ford pickup powered by a Stout 514 Big Block Ford out of the MotorTree Racing Camp. what a day of racing!
I want to mention young Jayden Deplonty was entered in this event, her first “official” bracket drag race. she went 2 rounds I believe. well done again.

Saturdays KOH qualifying and race rounds was backed up by the “Kelowna Street Outlaws” in a rare day race due to a rainout of the “Friday Night Instant green street Drags”
This portion of the day was again a huge success! Jordy Lazic was again holding off every and anything thrown at him. Kelly Madore ripped a very impressive 5.23 in a blistering side by side
5.23 run with Jordy. side by side 5.23’s..wow! However, at the end of the day, Nobody could match the UNREAL 5.17 at over 141mph that Jordan Lazic pulled off in the afternoon!
To say these street legal machines are fast would be a gross understatement! these insured, plated and street driven machines could run in the UPPER third of our Top Comp/Doorslammer class!! Continue reading
