Thunder Road SpeedBowl
American-Canadian Tour (ACT) officials have announced the penalties assessed following the disqualification of Street Stock driver Geoff Forsey from Sunday’s M&M Beverage Street Stock Special at Thunder Road Int’l Speedbowl, Barre, VT. Forsey, from Westford, VT, was disqualified and will lose all points and purse monies from the event as well as all weekly points accumulated thus far. He has also been suspended for the remainder of the 2006 race season.

Forsey’s was one of ten Street Stock engines pulled and inspected at the conclusion of the division’s annual special race. He refused to abide by the ACT technical inspection guidelines of forfeiting illegal parts and that played a role in the severity of the penalty that was imposed. He had finished the race in fourth place. Joel Hodgdon from Craftsbury, VT inherited the position.

The high-banked, quarter-mile track’s season continues on Thursday (August 3) with the Calkins/Windshield World Trophy Dash which will feature the annual Port-A-Potty Grand Prix for the point leaders of the track’s four divisions. Each team will power a self designed and constructed “Out House” in a race during intermission.
The Late Models, NAPA Sportsmen, Allen Lumber Street Stocks and PowerShift Warriors will also be in action. Post time is 7:00 pm. Spectator gates will open at 5:00 pm.
