Had the return of the thunder cars and the steel block late models made there return to the speedway. Things went pretty smooth not much in the was of red flags and racing went all but pretty well with the occasional spin outs. But the memorable one was the in the mini stocks and one in the late models which you'll read here shortly. Had a candy scramble for the kids this week as well as the season is coming close to ending and winding down on the final points races. The track promoter and all the staff would like to thank you all for coming out and supporting the great sport of dirt track racing and the dedication the fans,drivers and crew that came every weekend as well as the new fans,drivers and crew members picked up along the way. There has been a lot of different drivers from all over that showed up to race at the bull ring. One that stands out was the 08B of Jacob Burdette from Brownsville Maryland talking before the race they stated that since points races were done at Winchester they came to Hill Valley Speedway to try it out. But had some issues with oil pump and was able to make the feature. Another new face to the speedway was in the mini stock division the 77 of Kenny Black. Road runners also had a new the 3 car of Zach Moist also showed up to race at the bull ring which later reading on social networking that the drivers had a lot of fun this week racing at Hill Valley. Here's how the features played out.

In the Thunder car division heat race winner was the 17X of Raymond Middaugh piloting Jeremy Moores car. In the feature Dj Keefer was off to early lead but the 17X of Jeremy Moore car piloted by Raymond Middaugh was running a close second third was the 47 of Tony Hampton 40X was piloted by Brandon Seibert. As the laps wound down with about five laps to go 47 of Hampton ran the high side groove and stayed there. Middaugh made an attempt at passing Keefer as well as Hampton making it almost three wide coming out of turn four. Hampton's 47 machine passes Keefer along with the 40X of Siebert and the 17X of Middaugh. Coming down to the final laps 40X was getting close to making a run on the 47 of Hampton as the checkered flag waved the H&S Racing came out as the winner. Congratulations on the win.

Mini Stocks heat race winners 10 of Jeremy Ott and 00 of Eric seibert. Feature had one interesting event not sure what went on with the car. But the green dropped and laps ticked off the score board then it happened the 16X piloted by Rusty Garlock pushes the 41 of Ronnie Garlock up on the jersey barriers and up toward the fence sparks flew off the car and what almost I thought for sure was gonna flip on the side Garlock saves it and gets out of the car. Goes back and makes sure other driver is ok. The 16 car of Gage Whitsel leading the race in a car he just brought out for the late season racing but the 10 machine of Jeremey Ott was gaining ground on him.
