Summer Thunder TV presented by PFC Brakes kicks off tonight at State Park Speedway, and this year we are hoping to make Summer Thunder TV even bigger than last year with the help of our friends at PFC Brakes.


The fine folks at PFC Brakes will be giving out $100 product certificates to every single race winner throughout the Summer Thunder TV schedule.


With more than 40 races on the schedule already, and more to come, that means PFC Brakes will be giving out more than $4,000 in product certificates.


“The product certificates are a good way to give back to the racers,” said Chris Dilbeck, NASCAR and short track sales manager at PFC Brakes. “Guys that can’t otherwise afford our product, this gives them a good opportunity to try to the PFC product. Our track record is very good in that once someone tries PFC they seldom go back to something else. This benefits us greatly. And working with and the great races and race tracks that the Summer Thunder TV series puts on is just a benefit all around.”


In addition to the $100 product certificate from PFC Brakes, each race winner will also receive a commemorative award courtesty of Mainely Awards in Saco, Maine.


The second edition of Summer Thunder TV kicks off Thursday, June 21st, which just so happens to be the first official day of summer, with the Flip Merwin Memorial Super Late Model race at Wisconsin’s State Park Speedway.


From there we head to the dirt of North Carolina’s Fayetteville Motor Speedway for the 40-lap Summer Sizzle for the FUEL Racing Series Dirt Late Models.


Over the course of the next two and a half months, our cameras will be at pavement tracks, dirt tracks, Late Model races, Modified races, and even Outlaw Kart races. We’ll be at more than 20 different tracks all across America and even in Canada at Jukasa Motor Speedway.
