Thunder Road SpeedBowl
Entries Still Rushing in for M&M Beverage Enduro at Thunder Road

Entries for the 23rd Annual M&M Beverage Enduro 200 amateur stock car race at Barre’s Thunder Road continue to file in at the track’s head office in Waterbury.  To date, nearly 80 drivers from Vermont, New Hampshire, New York, and even Florida have entered the smash ‘em, bash ‘em, crash ‘em, survival-of-the-bravest event on Sunday, July 29.  More than 100 competitors are expected to take a shot at the $2,000 top prize.  Post time for the race is 6:30pm.

“Participants will be able to enter the M&M Beverage Enduro 200 on the day of the race, but we are encouraging drivers to file an early entry with us at the office,” said Thunder Road Administrator Tina Gallison.  “The advantages of filing an entry include being able to reserve a number for your Enduro racer ahead of time.  Number assignments are on a first-come, first-served basis, and they’re going fast.”

Fisher/Federated Auto Parts Night Full of Action at Thunder Road

The annual Fisher/Federated Auto Parts stock car event at Barre’s Thunder Road on Thursday (July 19) will be chock full of action.  In addition to championship events for the American-Canadian Tour Late Models, Tiger Sportsmen, Allen Lumber Street Stocks, and Power Shift Junkyard Warriors, a pair of special events will fill the card.

The inaugural “Media Madness” race and a preview for the 23rd Annual M&M Beverage Enduro 200 will highlight the night’s program.  Even with the added attractions, Thunder Road’s traditionally low regular general admission prices will remain in effect at only $9 for adults, $3 for kids, and just $18 for a family of four – the best family entertainment value in Vermont.  Post time is scheduled for 7:00pm, with preliminary events at 6:30pm.

 

The inaugural “Media Madness” race will feature members of the television, radio, print, and Internet news media in Junkyard Warrior racers.  Included in the entrants for the race are Mike McGill of WCAX-TV Sports (CBS 3, Burlington, VT), Jamie Scavotto of WPTZ-TV Sports (NBC 5, Plattsburgh, NY), “Jumpin’ Jim” of Froggy 100.9 FM, Anna Grearson, sports writer for the Barre-Montpelier (VT) Times Argus, and Mike Twist of short track racing news website Speed51.com.
