Rough Riders Prepare for Thunder Road Debut
When Thursday night events start at Barre’s Thunder Road this Thursday, June 20, there will be a new twist on the Nation’s Site of Excitement’s racing card: The Rough Riders are coming to town.
The Rough Riders, are a division of 6-cylinder cars, ten years old or older, designed to introduce competitors to racing in a way that is cheap, simple, and most of all, fun. The cars will be painted with family friendly themes, and will have their first event of 2013 on the high banks this Thursday, June 20.
Part of the fun will be some good old-fashioned father-son competition from the most recent pair of entries sent in by Justin and Randy Johnson. Justin, who is just 18 years of age, will be racing with his father Randy for the first time.
