The course is named for the P-47 Thunderbolts that were produced in Evansvlee, Indiana during WWII. The Thunderbolt was built in greater quantities than any other US fighter. The P-47 was the heaviest single-engine WWII fighter to go into production and the first piston-powered fighter to exceed 500 mph. The Thunderbolt performed 546,000 combat sorties between March of 1943 and August 1945 and is considered the real forerunner of today's multi-role fighters. Demand for the Thunderbolt was so great that Republic built a new factory at Evansville, Indiana to augment production of the P-47 D. 1,050 P-47D's were ordered from Evansville on January 31, 1942.
