It was fan appreciation night June 11 at Thunder Mountain Speedway.
Kids were given the opportunity to hop inside a race car with a driver for a few laps around the track, and fans were treated to the annual lawn mower races, in addition to the local points stock car races.
Another highlight came during the qualifying laps as Arnie Kunka broke his own track record in the street stock class, posting a time of 17.23 seconds.
