LARRY PERRY TAKES HOME WIN AT HORNET SPECIAL
By Jaime Gregory


Salem, IN - June 03, 2011 - Friday night, Thunder Valley Raceway Park was host to the "Hornet
Special".  Seventeen cars were on hand to try their shot at the $200 top prize.  With lots of action in the
heat races, the front row of the A-Main was set with two strong runners on the front row.  Carrie Gilley
and Larry Perry both had their eyes set on chief starter Colton Fleetwood's green flag.  Perry saw the
advantage right off the start and held the point to lead the first lap.  Gilley showed Perry that she had a
little "girl power" under the hood and hung right in there with him, not letting him get to far out of his site.  
Gilley would race side by side with Perry with Joe Jarboe and Uriah Haub coming on strong wanting in on
the action up front as well. The lead pack would fast approach lapped traffic with Gilley taking the
advantage on lap thirteen.  Things got interesting at this point with the front runners going five wide
while trying to get around lapped traffic.  Five wide racing at Thunder Valley is amazing with the size
track that it is.  Gilley would not fair so well at this point, driving it in a little too hard causing her right
front to break and forcing her to go pit side. Perry went on to lead the remainder of the race taking
home the trophy and the $200 top prize.  Thunder Valley is off on June 10, but will return to racing
action on Friday, June 17 with a regular show consisting of Mini Sprints, UMP Mini Stocks, Mikowsky Oil
Pro Trucks, UMP Pure Stocks, UMP Bombers, UMP Hornets and Hornets 16 and under age group.
