KYLE – Thunderhill Raceway is hosting Kyle Area Chamber of Commerce (KACC) Night Saturday, when the Texas Super Racing Series (TSRS) returns.

The track is naming the 75-lap TSRS race, the KACC 75 after being the host to the June KACC Ambassador’s BASH (Business Advancement Social Hour) last week.  Guests were given the opportunity to network, while enjoying food, drinks, track tours and rides around the track in the pace car and in the passenger seat of some real race cars

To give chamber members even more exposure to the track, Thunderhill Raceway will be hosting the Kyle Area Chamber of Commerce Night at the Races this Saturday (June 13) and giving the VIP treatment to Chamber members.

“I’m inviting everyone to come out and join us for an exciting night of racing at Thunderhill Raceway on Saturday,” Hernandez said. “The Central Texas community is fortunate to have a great family-oriented sporting attraction here in Kyle for the racing fans, tourists and area residents. I know it will be another great night at the races for all of us to enjoy.”

In addition to the TSRS Late Models, the TSRS Allison Legacys and the Dwarf Car Racing Series of Texas will be part of the racing agenda – along with the ASA A-Line Super Stocks, Thunder Stocks, Grand Stocks, Mini Stocks and NasKarts.
