CENTER LISLE, NY – Thunder Mountain Speedway will continue to run the 600 Modified division weekly in 2018. During the past two seasons, the Spoonhower family has elected to pay a point fund directly to its drivers, rather than send the money to Doug Borger. This has been the speedway’s policy to reward the loyal competitors who support the speedway on a weekly basis rather than filtering the money through a third-party.
During past tour events, speedway management paid the XCel organization up to $90 per car for drivers unable to qualify for a feature event. We were very disappointed to learn that money was not given out to the drivers not making the feature, but instead went into Mr. Borger’s pocket.
Our speedway is fully insured and certificates of insurance have been made readily available to sanctioning bodies such as the Empire Super Sprints and Short Track Super Series.
Due to the XCel organization’s financial hardships, American Racer tires have been replaced by Hoosiers on the series. Thunder Mountain Speedway will remain loyal to American Racer and will have the tires available at the track for purchase.
Any further questions should be directed to the speedway directly.
