It Was A Good One. . . . . .
BILLY PAUCH UPSETS 410 FIELD, GULER TOPS MODIFIEDS AS SKIAS, ROCHELLE & HALABURA SHARE THE THUNDER ON THE HILL PODIUM TUESDAY NIGHT AT GRANDVIEW SPEEDWAY

Bechtelsville, PA . . . . . .The NAPA Auto Parts/COMDIAL Telephone Communications Thunder on the Hill Racing Series returned to action on Tuesday night with the fans favorite program, the Grandview THUNDER 5-25's. This features only program was a real thriller as one of the largest crowds of the year saw an unbelievable drive by Billy Pauch to win the 410 Sprint feature. In the Modified 25 lap feature, Mike Gular was the winner as Pete Skias won the 600cc Sprint feature, Jason Rochelle was the winner of the Rolling Thunder Legends main event with Travis Halabura winning the 600cc Modified feature. A total purse in excess of $31,000 was distributed with one-hundred and twelve cars competing in the five twenty-five lap features. This was the seventy-third show in the seventeen year history of the Thunder on the Hill Racing Series at Grandview Speedway.

You couldn't write a better script for the 410 sprint 25 lap feature event. Billy Pauch of Frenchtown, NJ landed the coveted Al Hamilton sprint car ride just twenty-four hours prior. Pauch, who did not drive a 410 sprint for two seasons, quickly agreed to complete in the event on the "hill". With just three warm-up laps under his belt, Pauch went on to win the 25 lap 410 Sprint feature event that paid $3,500 to the winner.

"This is one of my greatest wins, driving this Al Hamilton sprint car", said a joyous Pauch in victory lane. Car Owner Al Hamilton was thrilled in victory lane as well, telling Pauch he could keep all the winnings. After the drop of the checker flag, Pauch smoked the tires and did a donut spin in turn one, then drove a lap around the one-third mile going the opposite direction. Even the non-Pauch fans were stunned by this unbelievable performance. To add to the story, Pauch started ninth and passed some hefty talent to take the lead with just two laps remaining.

In the 410 Sprint feature, defending race winner Alan Cole of Bloomsburg, PA set the early pace with Doug Esh in the chase and Fred Rahmer third, Blane Heimbach fourth and Lance Dewease fifth. Pauch was on a charge, passing Dewease to take over the fifth spot on lap six. By lap eight, Pauch passed Heimbach and was in fourth, chasing down Fast Freddie Rahmer. Meanwhile, at the front of the pack, Cole was running to hide from the rest of the field. When the field passed on lap eleven, Pauch was third and closing in on Doug Esh.

At the halfway mark, Cole was the leader and Pauch was in second. "I knew I was in second, I just didn't know who was leading, so I just kept pressing on", commented Pauch in victory lane. Pauch finally saw the Cole sprinter on lap sixteen and with each lap, he reeled in the leader. Pauch added, "Al told me I wasn't driving a create of eggs, so don't be afraid to break it".

With five laps to go, Cole and Pauch were weaving through some slower traffic with a clear racing surface ahead. On lap twenty-three, Pauch dove to the inside of Cole and pulled along side of the leader when the red flag was displayed for Davey Sammons who flipped in turn three. The brakes failed and the Sammons sprinter slammed into the fourth turn wall. Sammons walked away uninjured.

Three laps remained when the green flag fell and Alan Cole protected the low groove going into turn one. Pauch placed the right rear tire on Grandview's battered boiler plate outside wall. Out of turn two, Cole and Pauch raced side-by-side with Pauch taking a slight advantage going into turn three. Cole fought back as the leaders charged out of turn four with Pauch having a slight advantage at the flag stand. Pauch took the top spot once and for all exiting turn two and ran unchallenged to his eleventh career Thunder on the Hill sprint car victory. Pauch is now the winningest sprint car driver in Thunder history, breaking the tie with Lance Dewease who also has ten Thunder victories. Pauch took the popular win over Alan Cole, Doug Esh, Fred Rahmer and Lance Dewease.

In the 25 lap NASCAR Modified feature, the caution was displayed before the completion of lap one when Kerry Kratz, Craig VonDohren and Jon Kellner tangled on the backstretch. On the restart, Ryan Watt gunned into the lead over Kevin Hirthler and Mike Gular. Watt remained the leader with Hirthler close in the chase. Jeff Strunk was on a charge and racing in the top five as the field passed on lap ten.

Deep in the pack, Duane Howard was threading his way to the front. At the front of the pack, Watt and Hirthler were in a dog-fight battle for the lead with plenty of lapped traffic just a head. On lap nineteen, Hirthler dove to the inside of Watt to take the lead. Hirthler then came up on lapped traffic and with no where to go, Watt and Hirthler tangled with Hirthler spinning and displaying the caution. Both Hirthler and Watt restarted the race at the rear of the field.

Mike Gular inherited the lead with Jeff Strunk in the runner-up spot and John Willman in third. On the restart, Strunk took the outside lead to challenge for the lead. With Gular down low, Strunk used the top side of the speedway as the duo raced for the lead. On lap twenty-three, the caution was displayed for a four car mix-up on the backstretch.

On the restart, with just two laps to go, Strunk again went to the outside and although he fought for the lead, Gular remained the man to beat. Gular took the win that was worth $2,500, his first ever Thunder on the Hill Series victory. Jeff Strunk was second followed by John Willman, Tom Unberhauer and Shawn Reimert. Duane Howard finished sixth after starting twenty-sixth. Doug Manmiller finished seventh after restarting in the rear of the field due to a flat tire.

The 600cc Modifieds opened the program with Travis Halabura leading the first four laps with Mike Keppler taking the lead on lap five. Keppler held off several challenges by Halabura to the checker flag. In post racing teching, Keppler was disqualified due to a tire pressure infraction, turning the win over to Travis Halabura followed by Tom Martocci, Brian Mandy, John Heagele and Dylan Cisney.

In the Guhl Motors 600cc Sprint feature, Pete Skias of Reading, PA led wire-to-wire, taking the win over Heath Hehnly, Mark Strickler, Brett Arndt and Brett Schoenly.

The Glick Fire Equipment Rolling Thunder Legend's offered a thriller as well with Ronnie Dunstan the early race leader. Dunstan and Jason Rochelle battled for the lead with Rochelle taking the top spot on lap twenty-three. Then from nowhere, Tim Tomson moved into the mix to challenge the leader for the final two circuits. Rochelle held on for the win over Tomson, Ronnie Dunstan, Josh Morrow and Steve Nederostek.

Andy Martin of ARDC was on hand to meet the Grandview fans and took some time to chat about his excitement of returning to race at Grandview on Saturday night, October 14. The ARDC Wingless Midgets will be part of the Grandview Thunder 5-25's. The Phoenixville Quarter Midgets displayed fifty-two of their cars. These drivers, made up of boys and girls between the age of 5-16 had the opportunity to open the Thunder on the Hill program with a pace lap around the one-third mile Grandview Speedway.

ALAN JOHNSON POCKETS $6,000 IN 100 LAP TRAFFIC JAM VICTORY WEDNESDAY AT GRANDVIEW

BECHTELSVILLE, PA . . . . . Alan Johnson of Clifton Springs, NY turned in an impressive ride on Wednesday at the Grandview Speedway to win the 100 Lap Super DIRT Series TRAFFIC JAM. For Johnson, it was his first win at Grandview and the victory firmly seats him the lead for Super DIRT Series title chase. Johnson was the early race leader, giving way to Steve Paine on lap thirty-four. Motor problems sidelined Paine on lap fifty-five with Johnson regaining the lead. Johnson collected $6,000 for his victory in the BPG/Chad Sinon Racing 100 lap TRAFFIC JAM.

The four heat race events were won by Jimmy Horton, Billy Pauch, Frank Cozze and Brett Hearn as Ryan Watt won the consolation. The COMDIAL Telephone Communications Time Trials saw defending event winner Tim Fuller set fast time (15.032/79.882 mph) over Billy Pauch, Frank Cozze, Gary Tomkins and Jimmy Horton.

The 100 lap Traffic JAM was a thriller from the outset with Jimmy Horton and Jeff Strunk leading the field out of turn four to take the green flag. Strunk used the outside lane to take the lead and held the top spot until lap eight when Alan Johnson took the lead. On a charge was Steve Paine who passed Horton for third and Strunk for the runner-up spot on lap fifteen.

Paine slowly inched closer to Johnson then made a serious challenge for the lead on lap twenty-eight. Johnson and Paine ran side-by-side then on lap 33, the duo made serious contact on the backstretch. Upon rebounding from the tangle, Paine was the new leader. Johnson was now chasing Paine for the lead. The first caution of the feature was displayed on lap thirty-seven for Ryan Watt who stopped in turn one.

On the restart, it was Steve Paine at the front of the pack followed by Alan Johnson, Jimmy Horton, Billy Decker and Gary Tomkins. Paine continued to set the pace until lap forty-one when Ryan Jacobs stopped in turn three.

At the halfway point, Paine remained the pace setter with Alan Johnson, Billy Decker, Jimmy Horton and Gary Tomkins racing in the five.

A great ride for Paine came to an end on lap fifty-five when motor problems moved him to the sidelines, turning the top spot over once again to Alan Johnson. Now Billy Decker and Brett Hearn where on a charge, trying to close the gap on race leader Alan Johnson.

In the late stages of the race, Decker did move closer to Johnson, then on lap eight-four he made a bid for the lead. Johnson used the lapped traffic to his advantage and again open some distance between himself and runner-up Billy Decker.

With the checker flag waiving, Alan Johnson was the winner over Billy Decker, Brett Hearn, Gary Tomkins and Tim Fuller.

The 600cc Modifieds were also on the program with heat race victories going to Tom Martocci and Chad Behler. In the twenty-five lap feature event Martocci was the winner, swapping the lead on the final lap with runner-up Mike Keppler.

100 LAP TRAFFIC JAM FEATURE FINISH: Alan Johnson, Billy Decker, Brett Hearn, Gary Tomkins, Tim Fuller, Danny Johnson, Jimmy Phelps, Dale Planck, Frank Cozze, Matt Sheppard, Pat Ward, Ryan Godown, Kevin Hirthler, Duane Howard, Kenny Brightbill, Ray Swinehart, Kevin Bates, Butch Tittle, Ryan Watt, Rusty Smith, Ryan Jacobs, Jimmy Horton, Jeff Strunk, Tom Sears, Steve Paine, Brett Tomkins, Billy Pauch, Bobby Trapper, Rick Laubach.

The one lap track record is 11.553 set on May 26, 2002 by Sean Michael in the ZEMCO sprint car.

PREVIOUS WINNERS
When you look at past winners of the Advance Auto Parts Super DIRT Series 100 Lap TRAFFIC JAM, the DIRT Boys are in charge with Brett Hearn winning in 1998 & 2002. Two-time TRAFFIC JAM champion Tim McCreadie took top honors in 2001 & 2004 with Billy Decker covering all the bases in 2003. New Jersey ace Jimmy Horton was the winner in 1999 as Wind Gap, Pa. driver Frank Cozze was the class of the field in 2000 and reigning overall Hoosier Tire-Sunoco Race Fuels Mr. DIRT Champion Tim Fuller is the defending race winner.

TRACK HISTORY
Grandview Speedway is rich in history, opening up for the first time in 1963. Property owner Forrest Rogers was first approached by the Pottstown All-Stars, a local racing club, with the thought of building a quarter-mile asphalt track in Berks County. At the time. the Pottstown All Stars staged stock car races at Sanatoga, Hatfield and the Municipal Stadium in Philadelphia.

The deal never materialized with the Pottstown All Stars but Rogers moved forward and began building his track in the fall of 1962. The track in its design was a one-third mile high-banked clay oval offering a seating capacity of about one-thousand spectators. The original announcers booth was large enough to hold three people and today that announcers booth remains on the property and is used as a ticket booth at the front grandstand gate.

Rogers worked hard at building Grandview but a heart attack ended his life just four years later. His son, Bruce Rogers, became the principal earth shaker at developing the future of the fledgling facility. To this day Bruce remains a plain and simple guy who loves this sport and that awesome track that sits on "the hill."

Over the years numerous improvements were made including a large expansion of the pit area, improved seating and the new high rise grandstands in turns three and four. Seating capacity around this racey "bullring" is nearly six-fold from the tracks original opening day crowd on August 11, 1963. The measured length of the track has never changed yet over the years the track was made wider to offer some of the most exciting side-by-side racing witnessed anywhere. Improved lighting and a new wheel fence provide excellent and safe viewing for all spectators and unlike most speedways, Grandview offers a close look and feel of the excitement that only dirt track modified stock car racing can generate.

Orwigsburg, Pa. driver Lauden Potts won the first-ever race held that August day at Grandview Speedway and a popular name to modified racing, Dick Haven, was crowned the track's first season champion. In 1964, Grandview Speedway changed from the modifieds to the Flathead Sportsman class then in 1968 the track went strictly sportsman stock cars. Warren Mutter goes down in history as being one of Grandview's all time favorite drivers as well as being a big winner. Don Loder, Red Lesher, Leon Altemose, Pete Damiani, Mike Geiser and Mike Kelly were other big name drivers.

Grandview also had a rich history in open cockpit racing, showcasing such big names as Duane 'Pancho' Carter, Wayne Woodward, Johnny Coy, Lehigh Earnshaw, Johnny Hubbard, Len Duncan and Carl Miller. It is also reported that A.J. Foyt ran his final dirt track race at Grandview, joining several NASCAR drivers such as Darrell Waltrip, Rusty Wallace, Sterling Marlin and Kyle Petty in one of the original "Race of Champions."

The modifieds grew bigger as the crowds became larger at Grandview Speedway. In the late 1980's and well into the 90's, Grandview Speedway experienced a growth trend literally unmatched by any neighboring speedway. Tracks like Reading, Nazareth, Penn National and Flemington ultimately lost the battle with their neighbors and local townsmen while Grandview just kept growing. Drivers like Kenny Brightbill, Glenn Fitzcharles, Fred Rahmer and Dave Kelly launched their racing careers at the Bechtelsville oval and rose to be the best in their class in the years to come.

One of the most popular events on the Grandview Speedway schedule is the rich and historic Freedom 76 for modifieds. This 76-lap event pays more then $20,000 to win and has attracted more then one-hundred cars just to attempt qualifying. Another significant event on the schedule is the Forrest Rogers Memorial, a race dedicated to the track founder and paying $10,000 to win.

The Thunder on the Hill Racing Series was born in August of 1990. Track owner Bruce Rogers and local racing official Bob Miller joined forces to present a special mid-week racing series. Thunder on the Hill is now in it's 16th season and is the trend setter for offering unique, fan appealing, variety-filled special events. The Super DIRT Modified Series joined Thunder on the Hill in 1998 with the first presentation of the 100 Lap TRAFFIC JAM. The show was wildly successful and continues to be a showcase event on the Grandview Speedway schedule.

CINDY ROWE AUTO GLASS SPEEDWEEK 2006
COMDIAL Communications to sponsor Fast Time Award for Pennsylvania Speedweek at Grandview Speedway

COMDIAL Communications, a long time supporter of the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Series, is adding some extra incentive to this year’s Pennsylvania Speedweek show on the one-third mile. A $200 award will be presented to the driver who turns the fastest lap during Time Trial qualifying, and another $300 if the driver can beat the track record set by Sean Michael on May 26, 2002 at a time of 11.533.

Fayetteville’s Lance DeWease has been one of the top guns over the years when the 410 sprints come to Grandview Speedway for the Thunder on the Hill Series events. Lance holds 10 career victories at the track along with 4 Thunder on the Hill Series championships.

“It’s a fun track to race at. Traffic plays a big role there. Some one might be running away with the show, but once they hit traffic it bunches the field back up and gives everyone a shot to win,” said DeWease. “It’s a real good place to race and we usually gear up for the big money shows.”

Lucas Wolfe of Mechanicsburg, PA has returned to the seat of the Jim and Laura Allebach Racing 5w and is excited to make his first appearance of the season at Grandview.

“It’s got a unique shape to it,” he said. “It’s fun to go to a track that we don’t get to race at that often and we’ve had some good runs there too. We’re looking forward to running there for the Speedweek show.”

Greg Hodnett is also no stranger to the Bechtelsville oval. The Memphis resident wasn’t in the area when the series was founded, but has found a way to make an impact there.

“Grandview kind of reminds me of Riverside Speedway back in Tennessee. It’s a little big bigger, but they are both really fast places to run and they are fun to race on because of the close action. I’ve run well there before and I hope that we can get another good finish during Speedweek.”

Also pre-entered for the race is Stevie Smith in his RAACE Foundation number 19. Originally from New Oxford, PA, Stevie now resides in Broken Arrow, OK. A “true outlaw” Stevie is selectively choosing his schedule this year and June 27 will find him circling the high banks of the Grandview dirt looking for his first win the in the Thunder on the Hill Series. His father, legendary driver Steve Smith, won the first ever Thunder on the Hill show held at Grandview held back in 1990.

The 410 sprint car portion of the show will consist of time trial qualifying, heat races, a B-Main, and a 35-lap, $5,000 to win feature! Some of the expected entrants for the show include Fred Rahmer, Chad Layton, Michael Carber, Mark Coldren, Brian Montieth, and Alan Cole.

Also appearing on Tuesday June 27 will be the ARDC wingless midgets. The popular club has already provided the crowd with some spectacular racing this year with last lap battles and great side-by-side racing. Andy Martin of Gordonville, PA came away with the win in the first appearance of the season at Grandview. The “Royersford Rocket” Steve Buckwalter and car owner Mike Miller staged a two car battle of the final laps of the opening show only to have Miller flip and Buckwalter sent to the rear on the final corner of the final lap handing the win to then third place Andy Martin. Other expected entrants for the show are six-time ARDC champion Ray Bull, Michelle Miller, Donnie Trent, A.J. Ernesto, and Tracy Readinger who competes weekly in the NASCAR modifieds at Grandview Speedway.

The Glick Fire Equipment Rolling Thunder Legend Cars will also be on the card with a 20 lap feature of their own. Ronnie Dunstan, Jason Rochelle, Rodney Kistler, Paul Rochelle, and Tim Tomson are just several of the names of the over 20 drivers expected to compete in the show.

Advance tickets for the Tuesday, June 27 Cindy Rowe Auto Glass Pennsylvania 410 Sprint Series event are now on sale. Adult tickets are $20, children 6-11 are $5 and children under the age of 6 will be admitted free. Tickets will be on sale at the Grandview Speedway on Saturday night, June 9.

Fred Rahmer is no stranger to Grandview Speedway. The Salfordville, PA native has practically owned the track over the years.

Thunder on the Hill 17th Season Opener
35 Lap Feature Goes Non-Stop in 8.2 minutes. . . . . .
SCHATZ POCKETS $10,000 FOR WORLD OF OUTLAWS WIN TUESDAY AT GRANDVIEW

BECHTELSVILLE, PA . . . . . . Donny Schatz was awesome, but then the entire Thunder on the Hill racing event at the Grandview Speedway on Tuesday night was a crowd pleaser. Schatz of Fargo, ND won the thirty-five lap World of Outlaws sprint feature, taking the lead with just two laps remaining from Daryn Pittman. Schatz collected the $10,000 winner's check for his victory in the non-stop feature that was completed in a record time of 8.2 minutes. Schatz also set fast time with a 12.015 one lap time in the COMDIAL Telephone Communications Time Trials, earning a $200 bonus.

Mother Nature was certainly not nice to this event as numerous rain showers were reported most of the day throughout the area, including a ten minute downpour that arrived at the Grandview Speedway around 4 PM. The Grandview Speedway track crew, led by speedway owner Bruce Rogers, worked their magic to deliver an outstanding, near perfect racing surface. World of Outlaws officials were very complimentary of the track crew for their work done to deliver such a surface.

A field of thirty-three 410 sprint cars turned out for the event with heat race victories going to Brian Carlson of Linden, IN, Greg Hodnett of Memphis, TN, Fred Rahmer of Salfordsville, PA, and Dave Cordier of Shoemakersville, PA as Chad Kemenah of Findlay, OH won the 12 lap "B" Main.

The NAPA Auto Parts 35 lap World of Outlaws sprint feature was a thriller with Brooke Tatnell taking the lead at the drop of the green flag. Daryn Pittman and Jac Haudenschild were close in the chase with Craig Dollansky following in fourth.

Pittman began to close the gap on Tatnell when mechanical problems sent the leader to the pits, turning the lead over to Pittman. Haudenschild was on the move with Dollansky in the chase as well. Also on a charge to the front was Donny Schatz, now racing in fourth on lap ten.

Dollansky and Schatz were in a heated battle as they passed Haudenschild to move into second and third. At the halfway point, Pittman remained the leader over Craig Dollansky, Donny Schatz, Jac Haudenschild and Joey Saldana.

The leaders quickly came-up on slower traffic and it became obvious that they could have an impact on the race leaders. Pittman, Dollansky, Schatz and Haudenschild were now racing under a blanket for the lead. On lap twenty-three, Schatz passed Dollansky for the runner-up spot and the World of Outlaws point leader now had just one car to pass to collect the $10,000 payoff.

Schatz appeared to be quicker through turns three and four as Pittman had the advantage in one and two. With five laps remaining, Pittman found more lapped traffic and Schatz was gaining ground. Then a mix-up with slower traffic forced Pittman to check-up, opening the door for Schatz to go full throttle into the lead with just two laps remaining. Pittman regained momentum now in second but just short of time to stage a challenge for the lead.

With the checker flag waiving, Schatz darted across the line, completing the 35 laps in a non-step record time of 8.2 minutes. For his efforts, Schatz earned $10,000. Daryn Pittman of Osasso, OK finished second with Craig Dollansky of Elk River, MN third, Jack Haudenschild fourth and Joey Saldana fifth.

Although it was predicted by the Thunder on the Hill race fans that one of the PA Posse drivers would win this event, their best representation was Greg Hodnett who finished sixth after starting deep in the pack. Fred Rahmer finished seventh with Lance Dewease ninth.

FEATURE FINISH: Donny Schatz, Daryn Pittman, Craig Dollansky, Jac Haudenschild, Joey Saldana, Greg Hodnett, Fred Rahmer, Terry McCarl, Lance Dewease, Randy Hannagan, Jason Martin, Alan Cole, Jeremy Campbell, Mark Smith, Chad Kemenah, Michael Carber, Justin Henderson, Dion Hindi, Tony Bruce, Todd Shaffer, Becca Anderson, Brian Carlson, Brooke Tatnell, Dave Cordier. DNQ- -Alan Krimes, Sam Schlosberg, Josh Weller, Bob Beidleman, Bill Rose, Judi Bates, Dave Hahn, Phil Weinsteiger.

ANDY MARTIN WINS ARDC WINGLESS FEATURE THRILLER AT GRANDVIEW

It all came down to the last lap, almost a story book ending. But not the kind of ending race leader Mike Miller or his challenger Steve Buckwalter wanted. For Andy Martin, he was in the right place at the right time. It all happened like this. Mike Miller took the lead at the drop of the green flag and set the pace through most of the 20 lap feature event. In the close five laps, Miller had company with Steve Buckwalter, Tracy Readinger and Frank Polimeda now in the chase.

With just two laps to go, Miller was holding off his challengers and doing a pretty good job of it. With the white flag waiving, Buckwalter was looking for the groove to make his move. Going into turn three Buckwalter took the deep inside lane and coming off turn four, race leader Mike Miller and Buckwalter tangled with Miller taking a series of wild flips, displaying the red flag.

The good new is, Mike Miller walked away uninjured from this spectacular last lap flip. For Buckwalter, he was sent to the pits by ARDC Officials for inconsiderate driving and for Andy Martin, he moved from third to the lead with one lap still remaining in the feature race.

With the green flag waiving, Martin gunned away from the rest of the field with Palimeda in second and Readinger in third. Martin dashed under the wire for the win followed by Frank Polimeda, Tracy Readinger, Billy Pauch Jr. and Dustin Morgan.

FEATURE FINISH: Andy Martin, Frank Polimeda, Tracy Readinger, Billy Pauch Jr., Dustin Morgan, Dave Shirk, Donnie Trent, A.J. Ernesto, Carey Becker, Ray Bull, Steve Lenig, Shawn Burke, Bobby Goerner, Mick Sean, Stephanie Stevens, Ginny Quinones, Chris Zrinski, Kathy Kurtz, Steve Buckwalter, Michele Miller, Mike Miller, P.J. Gargiulo, Ryan Smith, Danny Stratton, Scott Zipp. ARDC Wingless Midget Heat Race Winners: Tracy Readinger and Mike Miller.

Tuesday Night At Grandview. . . .
THE WORLD OF OUTLAWS LOOK TO GRAB THE MONEY AND RUN . . . . AGAINST THE SHERIFFS OF THE PENNSYLVANIA POSSE

The World of Outlaws have never lost in seven events at Bechtelsville’s Grandview Speedway and on Tuesday May 16th, the drivers of the Mean 15 will look to keep the streak alive. Fred Rahmer and the rest of the Pennsylvania Posse are left with the job of defending the home turf against the invaders. The NAPA Auto Parts/ COMDIAL Communications Thunder on the Hill series opener will feature a 35-lap, $10,000 World of Outlaws show featuring the best drivers in the country against the best drivers that Pennsylvania has to offer.

“The Wild Child” Jac Haudenschild is fresh off his first win with car owner Rick Wright and is the only current member of the Mean 15 to have visited victory lane on the one-third mile oval, but Joey Saldana, Craig Dollansky, Donny Schatz, and Terry McCarl are no strangers to Pennsylvania winner circles. Chad Kemenah, Daryn Pittman, and Brooke Tatnell also look to make some noise by the time the dust settles.

While the Outlaws have held a stronghold over Grandview, the Pennsylvania drivers have taken home their share of victories against the big guns. Fred Rahmer, Lance DeWease, Greg Hodnett, and Mark Smith have all sent the Outlaws packing before and are looking to send them away empty handed in the first Pennsylvania showdown of the season. Chad Layton, Todd Shaffer, and Keith Kauffman know their way around Grandview as well and could look to pull off an upset victory.

“Fast Freddie” picked up two Outlaw wins last year including a preliminary win at the Knoxville Nationals. With new car owners Jim and Sandy Kline, Fred is the currently leading all Pennsylvania drivers with 4 feature wins this season and is back with “Moon” Byers turning the wrenches on the J&S Fabrication #22. With this current hot streak, Fred looks to be the man to beat with the PA Posse.

Lance DeWease has also been hot as of late, finishing outside of the top 3 only one time in his last 10 starts. Lance is currently leading points at two of the weekly tracks on the Pennsylvania circuit and is also leading the Speed Dawg Central Pennsylvania Sprint Car Point Series.

The show will feature Time Trial qualifying, Heats, 2 Dashes, a B-Main, and 35-lap A-Main that pays $10,000 to the winner!

The ARDC wingless midgets will make their first appearance of the season as well on Tuesday night with a full card of qualifying and a 20-lap main event. Defending champ Ray Bull of Bloomsburg took one of last year’s opening midget feature and should be the favorite to win again. Riverside, CA native Danny Stratton will make a rare appearance on the east coast running one of Mike Miller’s midgets.

Always a good friend to sprint car racing and the Thunder on the Hill Racing Series, COMDIAL Telephone Communications President Jim Gallagher has added some additional loot to the payoff when the World of Outlaws roll into town on Tuesday night, May 16 at the Grandview Speedway. A bonus of $200 will go to the driver who sets fast time of the night. In addition, if that driver should set a new one lap track record, an extra $300 or a combined bonus of $500 will go to the COMDIAL Fast Time of the Night. That's a lot of money for a twelve second one-third of a mile run!

The one lap track record at Grandview Speedway is 11.533, established by Sean Michael driving the ZEMCO sprint car on May 26, 2002. The ZEMCO sprint car is expected to be in the field for the Tuesday, May 16 WoO show with Mark Smith at the wheel. Although so close on numerous occasions, Mark Smith has yet to score a victory at Grandview. Car Owner John Zemaitis is no stranger to the Thunder on the Hill podium, after earning four Thunder Series Owner titles.

The big question remains. . . Who will win the May 16 WoO Show at Grandview? At this time, the win is certainly looking in favor of one of the Pennsylvania Posse stars to include Mark Smith, Lance Dewease, Fred Rahmer, Greg Hodnett, Chad Layton or Todd Shaffer, but the MEAN 15 will be in full force as well.

The World of Outlaws have their MEAN 15 which includes point leader Donny Schatz, Joey Saldana, Craig Dollansky, Jac Haudenschild, Brooke Tatnell, Daryn Pittman, Jeremy Campbell, Randy Hannagan, Justin Henderson, Rob Chaney, Brian Carlson, Dion Hindi and Becca Anderson. Of the MEAN 15, only Jac Haudenschild has won a feature at Grandview, with that victory taking place on May 30, 1995.

The high powered World of Outlaws 410 sprints will compete in the COMDIAL Time Trials, a series of qualifying heat races, a "B" main and the highlight of the night, the 35 lap $10,000 to win feature event.

Also on the program will be the ARDC Wingless Midgets competing in heat race qualifiers and a 20 lap feature event.

Gates open at 4:30 PM with time trials getting underway at 7:30 PM. In the event of rain, Wednesday night, May 17 will be the rain date.

PENNSYLVANIA POSSE LOOKS TO ROUND-UP THE WORLD OF OUTLAWS AT GRANDVIEW SPEEDWAY ON TUESDAY MAY 16

The best that Pennsylvania has to offer will take on the Mean 15 from the World of Outlaws on Tuesday May 16 on the high banks of the Grandview Speedway in Bechtelsville, PA. This event kicks off the 17th year of the Thunder on the Hill Racing Series presented by NAPA Auto Parts and COMDIAL Communications.

Leading the World of Outlaws Mean 15 will be current point leader Donny Schatz. Joey Saldana, Craig Dollansky, and Terry McCarl all turned in impressive performances at Grandview during last year’s show, but Jac Haudenschild is the only member of the Mean 15 to visit victory lane.

While the members of the Pennsylvania Posse have yet to beat the Outlaws at Grandview, don’t count them out just yet. Several members of the Posse have taken events from the Outlaws at other area tracks and are looking to add Grandview to the list. The Outlaw drivers will have to sit up in the seat if they expect to hold off the hungry PA drivers who are eager to collect the $10,000 prize money in the 35 lap Thunder on the Hill Shoot Out.

Also on tap for the evening will be the popular ARDC wingless midgets. The midgets will feature qualifying events and a 20 lap A-Main. The “Royersford Rocket” Steve Buckwalter and 6-time defending ARDC champ Ray Bull took the two victories in ARDC action last year and look to be the favorites in the show. Also expected to make an impact on the show will be BMARA ace Donny Stratton who claimed wins in the USAC show at Eldora and at the King of the Doodlebug at Knoxville. Stratton will be chauffeuring one of Mike Miller’s cars along with teammates Mike Miller, Michelle Miller, and Tracy Miller.

$10,000 TO WIN WORLD OF OUTLAWS BATTLE TO TAKE PLACE AT GRANDVIEW TUESDAY, MAY 16

Some drivers have hopes of winning the $10,000, others will just leave their sprint cars in their garage on Tuesday night, May 16 when the NAPA Auto Parts/COMDIAL Telephone Communications Thunder on the Hill Racing Series at Grandview Speedway host the nationally known World of Outlaws. Without a doubt, these are the fastest sprint cars in the country with the nation's best sprint car drivers and they'll invade the Berks County one-third mile high banked oval for their annual mid-week stop. Time trials, heat race qualifying and a "B" Main will lead up to the big finale, a 35 lap feature event paying the winner a hefty $10,000.

Although the World of Outlaws claim to be the best sprint car drivers in the country, there is no doubt that they do get just a little "gun shy" when they come to Pennsylvania. After all, this is home of the Pennsylvania Posse 410 sprint drivers. PA drivers like Fred Rahmer, Lance Dewease, Greg Hodnett and Mark Smith have in the past, beat the World of Outlaws and their determination to do so at Grandview on Tuesday, May 16 is at an all time high.

The World of Outlaws have dominated every WoO event at Grandview Speedway, shutting out the PA Posse locals. Rahmer, Lance Dewease, Greg Hodnett and Mark Smith are all weekly arch rivals on the local scene, but when the World of Outlaws come to town, it becomes a "them verses us" challenge and this year, the Posse plans to pocket the loot.

The World of Outlaws have their MEAN 15 which includes point leader Donny Schatz, Joey Saldana, Craig Dollansky, Jac Haudenschild, Brooke Tatnell, Daryn Pittman, Jeremy Campbell, Randy Hannagan, Justin Henderson, Rob Chaney, Brian Carlson, Dion Hindi and Becca Anderson. Of the MEAN 15, only Jac Haudenschild has won a feature at Grandview, with that victory taking place on May 30, 1995.

For the PA Posse it's a different story. Lance Dewease owns ten wins at Grandview, Rahmer is an eight time winner and Greg Hodnett owns 4 Grandview 410 sprint wins. Although close on many occasions, Mark Smith has never won at Grandview, but car owner John Zemaitis is a four time owner champion in the Thunder on the Hill Racing Series. Could Billy Pauch land a 410 ride for this show? If so, look out since Pauch owns ten sprint wins at Grandview as well.

So you figure it out. Who has the favorable odds of winning the $10,000 prize at Grandview Speedway on Tuesday, May 16 ? The World of Outlaws or the PA Posse?

Also on the Tuesday, May 16 program will be the popular wingless ARDC Midgets competing in qualifying events and a 20 lap feature. See youthful Billy Pauch Jr. battle the best of ARDC wingless style. Donnie Trent, Andy Martin, Tracy Miller, Steve Buckwalter, Tracy Readinger, Eric Heydenreich and Mike Miller are just some of the competitors expected to make the 20 lap ARDC Wingless Midget feature event.

DONNY SCHATZ LEADS WORLD OF OUTLAWS TO GRANDVIEW TUESDAY, MAY 16

The nationally known and recognized World of Outlaws (WoO) sprint cars will make their first stop of 2006 in the state of Pennsylvania and it all takes place at the Grandview Speedway on Tuesday night, May 16. The World of Outlaws will invade the Bechtelsville, PA one-third mile high banked oval at the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series opener. Donny Schatz, the current WoO point leader has never won at Grandview Speedway and if PA Posse stars, Fred Rahmer, Lance Dewease, Mark Smith and Greg Hodnett have anything to do with it, he'll be shut out of victory lane on May 16th.

With $10,000 going to the winner, the locals are expected to be in full force and loaded to take out an outlaw or two. Since the start of the Thunder on the Hill Racing Series in 1990, seven WoO events were presented at Grandview Speedway and with each visit to the hill, an Outlaw driver pocketed the winners share of the purse. But in 2006, the story could be different.

Donny Schatz could be the WoO favorite when the caravan of traveling sprint cars trek up the hill on Tuesday night, May 16. But following Schatz will be Jac Haudenschild who has one WoO win at Grandview. That victory came in May of 1995. Other invaders include Joey Saldana, Terry McCarl and youthful and talented Daryn Pittman. That's just some of the MEAN 15 that will be in the starting line-up on May 16.

The World of Outlaws will qualify through time trials that in turn will create the starting line-up for the qualifying events and eventually the "B" Main. The nightcap will be the $10,000 to win 35 lap Thunder on the Hill feature event.

Also part of this blockbuster program will be the fast growing in popularity, ARDC wingless midgets. Ray Bull will be looking to take his stand on the Grandview Speedway podium, but watch out for the "new kid" in town, Billy Pauch Jr. That's right, Billy Jr. will be wheeling a wingless midget in search of his first ARDC career win at Grandview.

It's a great night of racing for any open cockpit race fan as the powerful WoO Sprint Cars team-up with the ARDC Midgets on Tuesday night, May 16.

Advance tickets for the May 16 World of Outlaw event are now on sale. Adult tickets are $30, children 6-11 are $10 and children under the age of 6 will be admitted for free.

WORLD OF OUTLAWS TO OPEN 17TH THUNDER SERIES TUESDAY, MAY 16 AT GRANDVIEW

Bechtelsville, PA is a nice place to live. Clean air, blue skies and everything else you need for a quality life. But every now and then, some strange things happen up there on that hill. Lines of cars and big rigs turn off Route 100 and climb to the top of Passmore Road. Just around sundown, you'll hear the National Anthem and then the roar begins. Some say they feel the ground shake. Others see lightning and I've read in the paper of. . . Thunder on the Hill.

For those who are new to the area, it’s the long established home of Grandview Speedway, a one-third mile high bank dirt oval that features weekly Saturday night, Late Model and NASCAR Modified stock car racing. Grandview Speedway is also home of the NAPA Auto Parts/COMDIAL Telephone Communications Thunder on the Hill Racing Series. In 1990, Grandview Speedway owner Bruce Rogers and special events promoter Bob Miller joined forces to create a mid-week racing series known today as Thunder on the Hill.

Lance Dewease is a four time Thunder title winner and the only driver to win the title three consecutive years. Dewease wore the Thunder crown in 1998, 1999, 2000 and 2002. Fred Rahmer has three Thunder championships to his credit, taking top honors in 1997, 2004 and 2005.

The modifieds have played a big part in the Thunder on the Hill Racing Series as well. Jeff Strunk of Bethel, PA won the Modified Thunder Championship in 2004 and again in 2005. Strunk is also the winningest driver in Thunder on the Hill history with six wins over Brett Hearn a three time winner. Four drivers each have a pair of modified wins and the list includes Doug Manmiller, Frank Cozze, Timmy McCreadie and Jimmy Horton.
