Driver of the Day - Jean-Paul Cyr

Driver of the Day: Jean-Paul Cyr

 Cyr is a former Thunder Road Late Model Champion and a seven-time ACT Champion, who returned to the highbanks of Thunder Road for the 2013 season. He immediately proved he hadn’t lost a step since his 2009 championship season as he came out of the gate with a third on Merchants Bank weekend. He then captured three straight top tens, including back-to-back podium finishes in the first three point-counting events to earn his spot near the top of the standings. He finished 6th in the final standings and pocketed the $1,000 point fund check. Cyr has to be considered one of the all-time greatest Vermont stock car racers.
