By Edward AnschutzSTURGEON BAY, Wis. – Thunderhill Raceway is set to honor Terry Simon this Saturday, June 21.Simon was a huge supporter of local dirt track racing. You didn’t have to look far to find his wife Darlene sitting beside him in the stands or walking through the pits as they talked to all the drivers. Sadly we lost Terry to an unfortunate accident. He is missed by many and we’re racing in his memory with the third annual Terry Simon Memorial. With his 50th Thunderhill win achieved last week, Todd Dart padded his point lead in the IMCA Xtreme Motor Sports Modifieds to seven over two-time defending champ James Tebon. The IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars had a shake up as point leader Shawn Havel suffered a DNF, letting Charlie Kroll close to within one point. Two-time defending champ Dave Bouche sits two markers back. Thunderhill Raceway website designer Chris Budzban has raced his way into the point lead of the Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMods. Budzban leads Ryan LeMieux by just one point heading into week six. Both drivers are also in the hunt for the title at Luxemburg Speedway. Jeremy Jauquet is clinging to a one point advantage over Derek Moede in the IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks.The bounty continues in the Street Stock division for anyone who can beat point leader Billy LeMieux. This will be the third week of the bounty. LeMieux has his race car fixed up and ready to go again this week as he’s chasing his first-ever championship. A lot of trash talk has started and there should be a solid number of new faces looking to take home that top prize. Many of Oshkosh’s best Street Stock drivers have inquired about the track layout. LeMieux leads Kevin Luedtke by 12 points.The 1st Choice Auto, Kelsey Coatings Vintage Race Cars will be on display. Fans will be able to see what body styles competed back in the day at Sturgeon Bay. We are also hoping to give rides in the vintage cars at intermission. Race fans will also get free popcorn. Action kicks off at 6 p.m.
