BECHTELSVILLE, Pa. – Brady Bacon plans to be in the field when the USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car Series rolls into Grandview Speedway on April 22 to kick off the 32nd season of the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Series.
Bacon has won in his last three starts at Grandview from 2017-’19, and will chase his fourth Grandview win in a row in the Dynamics Inc. No. 69 for Hoffman Auto Racing.
In the history of Thunder on the Hill, only Greg Hodnett won four consecutive features, all of which came in a 410 winged sprint car.
Bacon will be up for the challenge on a track where he has a strong fondness. A $6,000 prize will go to the winner of the 40-lap Rub Rails & Rooster Tails sprint car event.
Other USAC stars expected to be in the field include Justin Grant, Kevin Thomas Jr., C.J. Leary, Chris Windom, Robert Ballou and Chase Stockon, to name a few.
To further complement the show, the 358 modifieds will share the card with USAC. The modifieds will compete in qualifying events leading up to the $3,000-to-win, 30-lap feature.
The April 22 event will begin at 7:30 p.m., with the grandstand gates opening at 5 p.m. ET.
Advance tickets are available by calling (443) 513-4456. Tickets may be paid for and picked up at the Will Call window on race night. Advance ticket holders may enter the grandstands at 4:30 p.m.
Advance tickets orders can be processed up to the day before the race. Advance tickets will not be available on race day.
Thunder on the Hill asks for exact change when purchasing advance tickets, general admission tickets and pit passes. Adult admission tickets are $30, children six to 11 are $10, and children five and under will be admitted free.
The pit fee is $40, and a license is not required.
The April sprint car show is the first of two sprint car events for USAC at Grandview Speedway this season. On June 15, Eastern Storm returns as the AMSOIL National Sprint Cars begin a week-long tour of the East Coast with the Jesse Hockett Classic at Grandview.
