Atlanta Motor Speedway's Thursday Thunder Cancelled Due to Inclement Weather
Week seven of Atlanta Motor Speedway’s Thursday Thunder showcased only one feature race before heavy rains cancelled the remainder of the evening’s activities.
Austin Hill began the Pro feature out front. Taylor Hull was the leader by the time the first circuit was complete. Hill took his car to the garage early in the race, so it was a two car battle for the win. Hull held off Massey to claim the victory.
The remaining classes of Shane’s Rib Shack Young Lions, Racing Radios Bandits, Masters, Pro and Semi-Pro will all compete in double feature races during week eight of Thursday Thunder.
Short-track racing returns to Atlanta Motor Speedway Thursday, July 12 for week 12 of the 2012 Thursday Thunder season. The night will feature a special display from the Georgia Racing Hall of Fame showcasing vintage racing cars. Tickets for the affordable, family-friendly racing series costs just $6 for adults, $2 for children ages six through 11 and is free for children ages five and younger.
