The 45th Annual Chittenden Bank Milk Bowl stock car event will go on as scheduled at Barre, VT’s Thunder Road on Sat./Sun., Sept. 27/28, despite a test from Mother Nature. Recent weather forecasts have changed in favor of the event’s taking place, and have prompted race officials to continue with the program as planned.
“We feel like we’ll get a fair chance to race on Saturday, and Sunday should be even better,” said Thunder Road Manager Tom Curley. “In fact, we’ve even got back-up from our friends at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, as they’ve kindly offered us the use of their jet-dryer in case we do get wet.”
The weekend begins with Booth Bros./H.P. Hood Qualifying Day on Saturday, Sept. 27 at 1:30pm, with Time Trials for the $1,000 Booth Bros./H.P. Hood Pole Award and “Triple 50” qualifying races for the American-Canadian Tour (ACT) Championship Late Models, qualifying events for the NAPA Tiger Sportsman and Allen Lumber Street Stock divisions, and the championship season finale for the Power Shift Online Junkyard Warriors.
