“This was a great day to celebrate the amazing success that Duke and Rhonda Thorson as well as the ThorSport Racing teams achieved in 2021,” said Head. “We were glad we contributed a win and some runner-up finishes this season to the SealMaster and ThorSport Racing operation. We are already working to add more championship trophies to the shelf in 2022. This whole community supports ThorSport Racing so it was cool to be able to give something back to them today.”
