July 7th, 2013 - Hello race fans, my name is Alan Crowe. I am the owner and promoter of Thunder Valley Speedway. We have worked diligently on the racetrack to get it race-ready for this season. However, now that we are late into the season, it looks as if we will not be able to open for the 2013 season. This is due to track being in much worse condition than we anticipated and the extremely wet spring and summer weather.
We have completed a great deal of the projects at the track such as new lighting, new track surface, fencing and catch cables, and many more necessary improvements. Unfortunately, there is still a lot to do before we can open.
Because of various, unforeseen circumstances, such as a granddaughter who is being treated at St. Jude, a very busy work schedule, and a shortage of help, we have made the decision to open in the spring of 2014. Once we have decided on the schedule, we will post it on the website. The rules, which are already posted, will not change, so your cars should be ok as they are.
To test the surface of the track, we would like to have a few Friday night practices. The participation of the racers would be greatly appreciated. These practices will be announced on the website and our Facebook page. If any of you have questions or concerns, feel free to call me at 225-715-9521 or email me at email@example.com.
May 13th, 2013 - Thunder Valley Speedway is getting closer and closer to being ready to officially reopen. For the first time in several years a Super Late Model has made some laps around the track as Kenneth Crowe took his race car out as shown in the picture. Details coming very soon on opening night!
April 23rd, 2013 - More photos have been added to the Media section of ongoing improvements at the track.
April 21st, 2013 - As an update to all of our great racers and race fans, the rain is really slowing down the progress with getting the track ready to reopen. We are waiting on the infield to dry so that we can get the last two baskets hung. Please be patient as we continue to get the track ready as you all know we didn't inherit a race-ready track, but it will be soon. Thanks for your patience!
March 13th, 2013 - Improvements and new construction continue to be underway at Thunder Valley Speedway (Glenmora, Louisiana) as the track prepares for its grand reopening. Over a foot of new clay is currently being place around the track. Four out of the six stadium lights are now in the air, and the old catch fence is torn down and will be replaced soon with new fence with catch cables. Things are coming together quite well, and the track will be announcing an opening date very soon so please stay tuned!
December 25th, 2012 - Welcome to the launch of the brand-new website for Thunder Valley Speedway (Glenmora, Louisiana) at its new home at www.ThunderValleySpeedwayLA.com.
