Legend Bobby Allison Coming to Make-A-Wish Night
Thunder Road Also Hosting Annual Run-What-U-Brung
NASCAR legend Bobby Allison will visit the Barre highbanks as Thunder Road will be back in action this Thursday, August 15 with Make-A-Wish night presented by Bond Auto Parts. Allison, one of the winningest drivers in NASCAR history, will be on hand to sign autographs for the fans as part of the Vermont Governor’s Highway Safety Program. The evening will feature three (3) Thunder Road divisions, Late Models, Tigers and double features for the Street Stock plus the annual Run-What-U-Brung.The Run-What-U-Brung allows the average fan a chance to tame the Barre highbanks in their street legal, registered and inspected vehicle. All they need are long pants, long sleeve shirt, helmet and a pit pass. The elimination match races (one-on-one) are one lap each until only the champion is left standing. Past Run-What-U-Brungs have seen everything from bread trucks to jacked-up trucks to two-door hatchbacks.
This Thursday’s Make-A-Wish night will kick off with a Street Stock feature make-up at 6:30pm. The grandstands will open at 5:00pm. Admission is just $10 for adults, $3 for kids (ages 6 to 12) and $20 for a family of four (2 adults, 2 kids). The Run-What-U-Brung will be held during intermission. All Run-What-U-Brung competitors must be registered and in the pit area with their cars by 6:00pm.
