Anticipation was high entering Week 3 of Thursday Thunder for exciting side by side racing after thrilling finishes in the Estes Services Masters Division and the 15th Street Pizza and Pub Outlaw Division in Week 2 action. The excitement fizzled as rain caused the cancellation of Week 3 feature races on the quarter-mile "Thunder Ring" at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

Competitors will return to the track next week with another opportunity to collect points in the battle for the Thursday Thunder season championship. Seven points separate the top three competitors in the 15th Street Pizza and Pub Outlaw Division with an 11 point spread between first and third in the Estes Services Masters Division.
