Eight pastors, eight feature races that resembled heavyweight boxing matches, a nun and a marriage proposal all combined to make one unforgettable night of racing at Atlanta Motor Speedway's Thursday Thunder racing series last week.

Local racers who performed well on the track were:
• Tanger Outlet Center Masters: Ed Clark, Peachtree City, 10th; Steve Fessler, Tyrone, 12th
• Adrenalin Powersports Pro: Billy Fulson, Brooks, 9th
• Fuddrucker’s Semi-Pro: Tyler Armstrong, Fayetteville, 12th, Jonathan Chandler, Fayetteville, 12th

• Curry’s Collision Center Chargers: Leslie Cash, Brooks, 10th
• Back Yard Burgers Roadsters: Ed Clark, Peachtree City, 1st
• Greencastle Dental Young Guns: Jake Armstrong, Fayetteville, 7th,

Atlanta Motor Speedway's Thursday Thunder will return on Thursday, July 19 for a night full of Legends, Bandolero and Thunder Roadster racing. Next week will feature Eagle 106.7 FM's "Joe Momma Night" where any person named Joe, who brings their mother to the race, will both get in free. The intermission race will include five Eagle 106.7 FM's best "Joe Momma" joke winners versus AM morning drive personality Southside Steve in a match race. Finally, AMS will also host the opening ceremonies for the 6-year-old Dizzy Dean Little League World Series.
