XXXXXXWell Thunder on the Beach III is upon us. The show has continued to grow and word of it has spread far and wide. For those of you who haven't experienced one for yourself, you can go here to get a small taste of what its like. For those of you that have joined us once or even twice before, we have even more in stock for you than earlier shows. I have teamed up with in an effort to only make the show bigger and better! We have also signed on many new sponsors who are contributing plenty of prizes for you all to go home with. At our last show we tripled our number of guests from the show prior and this time I hope to do that yet again. We will even be joined by a few of our sponsors and a few other special guests. (TBA) It will be a weekend of laid back racing, good friends and family and of course tons of prizes and trophies to go home with! Hope to see you all there!
