Well the track has sat empty from a very dismal 2012 season. They shut the doors on the place after car counts dwindled to the low teens for all classes combined and fans were less than 100 most nights. They were running late models, Modifieds, street stocks, bomber/thunder stocks, warriors and 4 cylinders. 2013 had plans to open, with new ownership or management but talks and negotiations fell through. Winston speedway will take over the Muskegon area as the premier dirt facility on Saturday dirt track for 2013.

For those of you who attended the race this Sat a burrrry Thank You. Thunderbird has heard your concerns and comments and ares making changes that will increase the quality of the track and its appearance. The most current changes and most important are those of safety for the drivers and spectators. They have started to add a new chainlink fence around the track additionally work on the grandstands has started by adding kick boards to prevent any of our little ones from falling through. Roman and Troy are dedicated to increasing the quality of the races and are open to comments.

In the near future Thunderbird will be distributing a questioneer for drivers and spectators, for those who want to suggest/comment on the facility. This will allow Thunderbird to focus on the important issues that concern the drivers and spectators.

The track reopens March31st for test and tune and April 7th for full schedule races. They are currently working to improve the track, I personally have been helping them replace the front stretch fence and new poles for the fence. The track itself looks like it will be in good shape as well. Lots of new modifieds (around 17 new ones)will be racing there this season, as well as two new classes. The new classes include mini sprints, and a six cylinder class made up of your basic front wheel drive cutlasses,cavaliers etc.

it will be called the Thunderstock class, sounds fun to me. I live less than 1 mile from the track and personally know the owners they are great people!.

I ran at Thunderbird for the frist time at the Rolling Thunder 250. It was a fun track to run. It is one of the fastest tracks that I ever ran on. The staff at Thunderbird is very helpful. Bill Murawski Jr #09.
