Sunoco Super Series to race at Thunder Valley Speedway in 2003.

Salem, Ind. (December 21, 2002) -- Thunder Valley Speedway, the former M-40 Motorsports Arena, will host a Sunoco Super Series event for the first time ever on Saturday, July 5, 2003. The 3/8-mile semi-banked track located in Jones, Michigan is under new ownership for the 2003 season. The ownership group includes Cass Casstelucci, Bill Brown, and Steve Brown. The group purchased the track during the 2002 season, but elected to only host one event in 2002. That event, the Halloween Hustle, attracted over 180 racecars from all over the region.

Thunder Valley Speedway has scheduled a full season of racing events on Saturday nights for 2003. The July 5th Sunoco Super Series event will be the premier event on the Thunder Valley Speedway 2003 schedule.

The July 5th Sunoco Super Series event at Thunder Valley Speedway will be the second half of a big Holiday Weekend of racing for the Sunoco Super Series. The series will visit Angola Motor Speedway on Friday, July 4th for the annual Firecracker 150. The series will then travel about an hour west for the 150-lap event at Thunder Valley Speedway on Saturday, July 5th.

"We are really excited about being a part of this big weekend of racing with the Sunoco Super Series," remarked Bill Brown, General Manager of Thunder Valley Speedway. "This will be the biggest event on our 2003 schedule, Sunoco Super Series fans should see plenty of racing action and fireworks on that weekend!"
