The Sport of Dirt Track Racing

If you are looking for a hobby that will bring your family together, then look no further than the enjoyable and rewarding sport of Dirt Track Racing! Racing is a family sport and will give you memories that will last a lifetime. Statistics show that kids whose parents spend time and are involved with their activities are less likely to get in trouble and will be more successful in life as adults! Thunder Hill Speedway has worked with local businesses and respectable programs such as Dunn County Sheriff's Dept. D.A.R.E. program (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) for several years. Dads, moms, sons and daughters can all participate and have a great time at the races working as a unit to compete, putting their family teamwork to the test.  Racing can be a fulfilling after-school leisure time pursuit.  Getting ready for the next weekend’s big race or the upcoming racing season is a great way to keep young minds active and young hands busy. 

But, Dirt Track racing is far from being just for the youngsters. At Thunder Hill Speedway, we have 5 kids classes and 6 adult classes. So if you know you're faster than your buddy, there is no easier and funner way to prove it than going racing at Thunder Hill! Dirt Track Racing is some of the wildest most intense racing experiences possible.  The sport is suited for anyone ages 5-65!   There are 11 classes at Thunder Hill Speedway - starting with the 5 Horsepower Novice/Rookie classes up to the 80+ Horsepower 500cc Pro Open Winged Outlaw class! Racers who start at the local dirt tracks have proven themselves in all other venues of motorsports including NASCAR, USAC, World of Outlaws, etc.  The skills they acquire in the high speed action packed races gives them the confidence and ability to dominate other classes. Karts are the perfect "feeder" class and the best stepping stone to Midgets, Modifieds, Late Models, Sprint Cars and more.Over the past several years Dirt Kart Racing popularity has increased by more then 300%.
Dirt Track racing is a great way for a family or individual to get involved in racing at an entry level.  The sport is safe and affordable when compared to any other racing.
