Thunderhill Raceway TV Update


Thunderhill’s new TV series is moving forward as two LA producers continue their work.  The show has been in the building stages for the last few months, and the momentum will speed up considerably once a network has accepted the offer.

The first Open Test-n-Tune session will be held a month from now on Saturday, February 5.  These practice sessions are scheduled from noon until dark every Saturday in February.  The first race of the 2011 racing season is scheduled for Saturday, March 5 – exactly two months from today!

Thunderhill Raceway Lands TV Series


You may have previously read about Thunderhill Raceway here, but did you know that this Kyle favorite is slated to star in its own TV series??  Awesome!!!

Los Angeles-based producers Paul Hogan and Sarah Platt will be venturing to Kyle at the beginning of the 2011 racing season to start shooting an unscripted series.  They are in talks with several networks and hope to begin  pre-production work in early 2011.  Mary Ann Naumann, Thunderhill Raceway’s Owner/Promoter, stated that, “This series will certainly be a positive boost for both the Kyle community and stock car racing in South Texas.”  Everyone is extremely excited to move forward with the project.
