Thunder On The Hill

General News

As a long-time member of the Club and the President and CEO of your race track I thought you might enjoy a little back ground check. Who is this guy at Thunderhill Park? Where did he come from? Inquiring minds want to know.
 
I started my racing career on May 10,  1948 in Billings Montana, the fourth of seven siblings. My older brother Lee was tasked with my survival and keeping me busy so as not to cause too much trouble anywhere. It happens that he was a fan of racing. It was the post WWII golden era of Jalopy racing and Billings Montana had two dirt oval tracks – Wonderland Speedway and Flying Saucer Speedway. He rode me on the handlebars of his bike to and from these tracks and to and from gas stations and junk yards where jalopies rested in between racing events. The smell of oil-soaked dirt and the fermenting of used upholstery and rusty metal still conjures up great memories of these old times.
