Memorial Day Classic Doubleheader Returns to Thunder Road
Devil’s Bowl and Airborne Modifieds Return
Thunder Road International Speedbowl will host the 52nd running of the Mekkelsen RV Memorial Day Classic on Sunday, May 25. The double-header program will once again feature 100 laps for the ACT Thunder Road Late Model division, and a special 50 lap main for the NASCAR Modified division that competes regularly at both Devil’s Bowl Speedway in Fair Haven, VT and Airborne Park Speedway in Plattsburgh, NY.
Derrick O’Donnell from North Haverhill, NH won the “King of the Road” title in 2013 and also the 2013 Mekkelsen Memorial Day Classic. “We had a great year in 2013. I sure like starting our title defense at the opening Classic event again. A good finish can really jumpstart your season,” said O’Donnell. O’Donnell and two-time Thunder Road Champion Nick Sweet were both in contention racing each other for the opening day Merchants Bank 150 win before they were sidelined in a late race wreck.
