As winter quickly comes to Pennsylvania’s Laurel Highlands, racing has ended for the year. Thunder Valley’s 2011 racing season, the 14th in the tracks history, will certainly go down as the most successful.
We would like to recognize and congratulate our track champions. Greg Fetters claimed his first Late Model Championship, Jim Sayler continued his mastery in the Semi Lates winning his third title. Rookie Brian Shaw triumphed in an exciting Pure Stock title chase. And Martin Vinosky won his third straight Four Cylinder Championship.
The speedway is planning a 2011 Awards Banquet and Dance to recognize the top ten in each division, details will be released shortly.
Under the guidance of Promoter Joe Padula and his staff the speedway completed 17 events during a summer which difficult weather conditions continually hampered racing plans. Plans for the 2012 racing season continue with the speedway management looking at multiple options to maintain successful operations at the speedway.
Fans and Competitors can look forward to a racing season commencing with the traditional early May start with racing continuing until the Annual Valley Finale Fall Fest in mid-September. Currently no major rules changes are being planned for racers, but the speedway is continuing to monitor racer feedback in this area.
We would like to thank all of the Fans, Drivers, Sponsors, and Officials who contributed to make racing successful this past season. And we look forward to another exciting campaign next season.
Please continue to check this website throughout the off season for developments regarding the 2012 Thunder Valley racing season.
