Tuesday, 25 June 2013

Get ready Tulsa because Saturday, July 13 will be a night you won’t soon forget.

For year’s Oklahoma’s Osage Casino Tulsa Raceway Park has been home to Thunder Jam’s biggest night of motorsports entertainment and to celebrate the support of the incredible Tulsa fans Thunder Jam will be taking this year’s event to a whole new level.

Known for its incredible night of fire and hardcore racing action, Thunder Jam will add a new element to this year’s show that will be sure to leave Tulsa’s loyal fans speechless – nitro! The 2013 Tulsa Thunder Jam presented by Gerber Collision & Glass will feature three nitro-burning racing classes plus all of the jet-powered firepower that fans have come to expect at Thunder Jam’s most exciting night.

The one-night-only show will feature three rounds of action with racing in AMSOIL Prostalgia Nitro Funny Car, Fuel Altereds and Nitro Harley plus the Battle of the Jet Trains, the 30,000 horsepower “Super Shockwave” jet truck and much more!

Tickets are $25 for adults and $10 for children and fans can save even more with a $5 discount off of a kid’s ticket available at any Gerber Collision & Glass location in the area.

Nitro Boss

“For years Tulsa Raceway Park has been one of the biggest and best Thunder Jams of the year and that has been made possible by the incredible fans who support this event and continue to come out each year to see what Thunder Jam has in store,” said Jim Marchyshyn, Thunder Jam Operations Manager. “This year what we have in store is one of our most exciting shows ever. Fans have come to know Thunder Jam for its jet-powered entertainment and this year we will be adding the unique sights, sounds and smells of nitro to the lineup. If you ask anyone who has ever seen a nitro race they will tell you, it is something you never forget.

“And at the Tulsa Thunder Jam we have some of the most famous nitro cars in drag racing’s storied history alongside our usual brand of in-your-face motorsports entertainment. It will most definitely be a memorable night.”

Highlighting the 2013 Tulsa Thunder Jam presented by Gerber Collision & Glass will be three nitro-powered racing classes including two of the most famous Funny Cars in drag racing history in the fan-favorite AMSOIL Prostalgia Nitro Funny Car class.

The world-renowned “Blue Max” Funny Car with its lineage dating back to the early 70s will return to action against the championship-winning “Nitro Boss” Mustang piloted by Texan John Hale in a return to drag racing past as the two nostalgia machines do battle on the quarter-mile just like old times.

Jet Trains

Joining in the nostalgic racing will be two of the most out-of-control Fuel Altereds in all of racing as nitro veteran Randy Bradford pilots “Bradford’s Fiat”, the same machine he has piloted for more than 40 years at dragstrips throughout the world. Bradford will be joined by the equally impressive “Nasty Benjamin” driven by Tom Padilla in a throwback to drag racing’s glory days.

Wrapping up the nitro action are the daredevils of the 220 mph Nitro Harley class. With no protection and no rules, these insane riders will power down the quarter-mile on only the rear wheels often times surpassing 220+ mph all with fire blasting from the pipes.

And no Thunder Jam would be complete without the fire!

The Tulsa Thunder Jam will come to a close with the famous Battle of the Jet Trains between K.C. Jones’ “Cannonball Express” and the “Chattanooga Choo-Choo” jet-powered replica train dragsters followed by the ground-pounding, 30,000 horsepower “Super Shockwave” jet-powered truck.

In addition to the on-track action, fans will also be able to take part in the AMSOIL Pit Party beginning at 5:30 p.m. The AMSOIL Pit Party features driver autographs, pit tours and more.
