UVM’s Hybrid race car to make Thunder Road debut
Stock car racing fans and drivers at Barre’s Thunder Road have had enough of the bad weather, and they’re looking to break free of Mother Nature’s wrath on Thursday, Aug. 14 at the Vermont ACE Hardware Dealers Trophy Dash. Thunder Road has fallen victim to rain in each of its last four regular-event attempts, dating back to July 24.
So in defiance of the weather gods, the racing will go on as scheduled on Thursday evening, with a full card of Late Models, NAPA Tiger Sportsmen, Power Shift Online Junkyard Warriors, and double 25-lap feature events for the Allen Lumber Street Stocks.
“A little rain’s not going to ruin our fun,” said Thunder Road Administrator Tina Gallison. “It’s been a lousy couple of weeks, but we’re fighting back. We want to race!”
