Great Race!! 


The NADCAR group had another fun night of racing at Thunder Raceway! It was great to see a few new faces visit from the south! #7 Ron Patton and #20 Frank Phillips put on a show for the 1st heat race win! Patton made his way back around Phillips to grab the checker and #72 Treavor Jorgenson took the final transfer. The 2nd heat race win went to #11 Heather Henesey, she made her way past #5 Storm Phillips and #12 Pat Henesey for the win. 

The main event track prep was unbelievable! 2 of the carbureted dinosaurs brought the field down to the green #12 and #20 (haha!). #11 brought out the only caution of the entire night with a snapped throttle cable. After the field bunched up again, the race was on! #12 jumped out to an early lead with the rest of the field right on his tail! #54 Charlie Iannacone started to get a feel for the racey track by moving quickly through the field on the low line. #5 Storm Phillips snuck up on #12 Henesey with only 4 left and drag raced down the front stretch to steal the lead. #54 Iannacone followed #5 Phillips to take the 2nd spot. #12 Henesey was able to get back around Iannacone for the 2nd spot after #54’s move on Storm for the lead lost too much momentum coming out of 4. #5 Storm Phillips parked it in victory lane! Way to go Storm!!! 

Great run by all the drivers!! What a fun night!! See you all on the 27th of for the final race on the 2016 NADCAR schedule! 

#12 Pat Henesey grabs the Win! 


The excitement was in the air, Thunder Raceways opening race was a success all around! The improvements and clean up of the facility definitely show! 

The racing action was typical NADCAR style, two and three wide around the entire track! #4 Gary Bowman and #10 Helen Henesey put on a show for the fans in the heat race with #10 grabbing the checkered flag. #23 Jason Craner and #4 Gary Bowman brought the field to the start of the main event. Bowman checked out on the field early on, with almost a half track lead on the 2nd place car. Coming out of 4 Bowman hit a slick spot and looped it, bringing out the yellow flag. 

#12 Pat Henesey saw his opportunity at a victory and wasn’t going to give it away! #11 raced him on the low line side by side for the remaining 5 laps, #12 Pat Henesey had the preferred line and didn’t miss a mark. 

Next race, Memorial Weekend Shoot out! 2 nights of racing! NADCAR rules will apply for the weekend. Coconino Motors has jumped on as a sponsor, if anyone else wants to “up the ante”, let me know!!
