By Jr. – Kenny Sweet didn’t know what to expect after Saturday afternoon’s race at Thunder Hill Speedway’s Fools Day Meltdown event.

Sweet’s BillsBuilt modified felt good, but he was going to be starting a few rows back. Passing would be hard to come by during an afternoon race with high 80 temps.

“I felt like it was good,” said Sweet, “I just felt like someone was always there. I knew that I had to go.”

Thunder Hill Speedway had held a lot of bad luck for the driver from Wichita, KS. On this afternoon the luck would finally fall his way. Once in the lead, Sweet would not give up the top spot. The win was worth $2,000, but Sweet was finally happy that he pulled down a win at a track that he likes.

“It feels good to finally get one!,” said Sweet in the post race tech.

The runner-up, Brendon Gemmill, also had a solid run on the day, Nic Bidinger started in the 10th position but came home in 3rd, 4th went to Jay Noteboom and rounding out the top 5 was the race pole sitter, Jay Richter.

The modified feature had a lot of passing. Tom Charles led a charge of drivers from 6th to 10th place. The amazing stat here was that all of those drivers started 16, 15, 19, 18 & 13th respectively.

It was the first time for the Sport Compacts at Thunder Hill Speedway. Scott Spellmeier took the honors of getting the first every Sport Compact feature win and he also became the first feature winner of the 2012 season at the track.

Bryan Lariviere, the 2011 IMCA N. Sport Mod National Champion, took home the win in the Sport Mod feature. Lariviere took little time finding his way to the front and then checked out on the rest of the competition.

Last season Kyle Vanover rolled to several wins in being named the 2011 Stock Car Champion at Thunder Hill. It shouldn’t have come to anyones’ surprise that he would find himself in victory lane on Sunday afternoon.

Adam Armstrong won the Hobby Stock feature on the day.

Thunder Hill will take a few weeks off before coming back with their season opener on April 28th.
