BECHTELSVILLE, PA    May 31,  2021   .   .   .   .    .     .   The Eastern Storm invades the Grandview Speedway  on Tuesday night, June 15 when the USAC AMSOIL Non-Wing Sprint National Tour returns to  the NAPA Auto Part Thunder on the Hill Racing Series event at the Grandview Speedway.    Gates open at 5 PM and race time is set for 7:30 PM.   Joining the USAC Non-Wing Sprint National Tour will be the 358 Modifieds in this always exciting double-header.  This twin bill is a Thunder on the Hill staple event that started in 2007 with the inaugural running of the Eastern Storm that opened at the Grandview Speedway.


Prior to the Grandview Speedway June 2007 USAC  visit to Berks County, USAC’s prior stop was at the Reading Fairgrounds on April 14, 1979 when Paul Pitzer took the win on the famed half-mile oval.   Since 2007, the efforts of Grandview Speedway has brought an increased interest in non-wing sprint car racing in the East.


This action packed show will offer plenty of  Wheelies, slide-jobs, some wheel banging and sprint cars grazing the outside boiler plate lap after lap.   Just watching the USAC warm-ups will thrill you!   If you have never seen the national stars of USAC, this is a must see show for you.    With the USAC Non-Wing Sprints and 358 Modifieds on the race card, this event has been a historic crowd pleaser.


All eyes will be on “The Macho Man” Brady Bacon from Broken Arrow, OK who will be chasing his fifth consecutive win in a Thunder on the Hill event at Grandview.     Only Brady Bacon and Greg Hodnett have accomplished winning four features in a row at Thunder on the Hill.    $6,000 will go to the winner of the 40 lap Jesse Hockett Classic  USAC National Sprint Car Tour feature event and some drivers looking to stop the Bacon win steak include Kevin Thomas, Jr., Robert Ballou, Tanner Thorson, Jake Swanson, CJ Leary and local  drivers Briggs Danner, Rick Buckwalter, Alex Bright and Steven Drevicki. 


The 358 Modifieds will share the spotlight  with qualifying events leading up to a 30 lap feature paying $3,000 to the winner.   Likely contenders for the event include Brett Kressley, Craig VonDohren, Duane Howard, Jeff Strunk, Rick Laubach, Danny Bouc, Ryan Godown and Jared Umbenhauer just to name a few.
