Driver Dale Loney hustled He's A Beachboy  out of the gate
and to a new world record in the 1/4 mile dash Saturday
afternoon (May 28).
He's A Beachboy (5, G Jenna`s Beach Boy-Angela`s Goldie-Direct Scooter), trained and driven by Dale Loney, quickly cleared the field of five from post position four and went on to win by 1 3/4 lengths.

Thunder Ridge Race Secretary Billy Perkins is no stranger to world records, as he wrote the 11/16 mile world record at Hawthorne Racecourse in 2004.

"Both times I was looking through the record book and wanted to have a race that would be entertaining and generate some excitement", Perkins said.

Owned by Amy Loney of Van Lear, KY, He's A Beachboy now heads to Paducah, KY for the upcoming Bluegrass Downs meet that runs June 10 - July 10.
