HILLSDALE, ON- Just days after suffering transmission failure in Sunset Speedway’s ‘Championship Night 100’ on Saturday, September 13th, Thayne Hallyburton has confirmed he will be in the field for September 18th’s Canadian Limited Late Model championship.
“I wouldn’t miss this race for the world”, says Hallyburton.
“I’m not going to lie – it took a few hours in the shop this week. But the repairs are finished and now we can concentrate on dialing this hotrod in for 125-laps”
The Hillsdale, ON driver will enter the event hoping to end the rash of bad luck that has plagued his team through the second half of the season.
“Bad luck is all a part of the game”, explains Hallyburton. “There’s not a driver in the sport that hasn’t had to overcome what we’re dealing with right now”
“There’s no quit in this team. We’re going to keep moving forward no matter what. We’re just one strong run away from turning it all around”
With 125-laps set to play out, Hallyburton is quick to note just how big of a role the right strategy will play.
“Races like this always have a way of luring guys into using up their stuff”, explains ‘The Hillsdale Hurricane’. “We’ve just got to be smart and keep the fenders on the car. I’m hoping to log some laps, get a feel for what the car wants to do and then go to work”

Thayne’s efforts are made possible thanks to the support of Transaxle Truck and Trailer Parts, Thompson Enterprises and Hillsdale Service Centre.
