Joey Laquerre Claims 14th Thunder Road LM Win
Longtime veteran of Thunder Road stock car racing, Joey Laquerre of East Montpelier earned his 14th career Late Model feature win during FairPoint Communications night on Thursday, June 5. It was the first Thunder Road Thursday night event of 2014. Laquerre held off both Shawn Fleury and Brett Gervais during multiple restarts to claim the win and move into a tie for fourth on the all-time Thunder Road Late Model wins list.
Fleury and Gervais finished second and third respectively in the caution plagued 50-lap event. Dave Pembroke appeared to have the fastest car on the track at one point but couldn’t find room to get to the front after several caution periods near the end of the event. He settled for fourth followed by Brooks Clark. Nick Sweet, Derrick O’Donnell, Josh Demers, Jason Corliss and Kyle Pembroke completed the top ten.
