Thunder Road SpeedBowl
CURLEY'S CORNER - NOVEMBER 2016

Happy Holidays!  It has been a while since I have written a Curley’s Corner to the ACT competitors and various interested people. There are lots of “off-season” rumors floating around, so I thought this would be a good time to let everyone know what is planned following the 2016 season.

 

HEALTH

First, my health has remained pretty consistent since last March, which was my last stay in the hospital. My condition is progressive, so it will continually deteriorate, but reality tells us that happens eventually to all of us! After going back to the control tower at Thunder Road during August and September this past summer, health-wise things seemed to have stabilized.  Any excessive exertion is still difficult with my breathing, but other than that, “Life is Good”.

Barre, VT – Nick Sweet of Barre successfully defended his title in the Northfield Savings Bank Milk Bowl at Thunder Road, using a pair of wins in the three 50-lap segments to claim a two-point victory in the combined standings over Jason Corliss of Barre. It was the third Thunder Road Late Model Sportsmen Milk Bowl victory of Sweet’s career.

Corliss needed to finish within three positions of Sweet in the final race to earn the victory. He had a chance to move into fourth place, and claim the Milk Bowl crown, in the final laps of the third race, but couldn’t find his way through traffic and ended up in seventh place in the segment, and second place overall.
