Thunderhill Raceway is gearing up for a big weekend! They're celebrating the debut of the newest addition to their racetrack, Thunderhill West. Action News Now got a sneak peak at the track and it does not disappoint.
The 2 mile addition to the track makes Thunderhill Raceway the longest racetrack in North America. More of track could mean more drivers. Thunderhill Raceway CEO David Vodden says he hopes people of all driving backgrounds come for a spin on the track.
More drivers could mean more revenue for both the track and Glenn County. Already, Thunderhill Raceway gives Glenn County a $16 million economic boost. With the new addition, that could double.
The grand opening of Thunderhill West is expected to draw 130 drivers to the track and even more spectators. The event is FREE to the public. Gates open at 8am both Saturday and Sunday.
