Late Models to Decide “King of the Road” With Double Features on Aug. 21
Stock car drivers at Barre’s Thunder Road will have a busy month of August ahead of them as the 2008 championship season begins to draw to a close. With rains forcing last Thursday’s Calkins Portables/WDEV Radio program to be cut short, Thunder Road officials have added the yet-to-be-run feature events for all four racing divisions to remaining programs throughout the month of August.
The headline American-Canadian Tour Late Model division will be on the hot seat at its final weekly championship event on Thursday, Aug. 21, Kinney Drugs Night, as the Calkins/WDEV 50-lap feature is run to begin the evening. A full card of Kinney Drugs qualifying and feature events will then be run later in the evening to determine the 2008 “King of the Road” track champion. Eric Williams of Hyde Park currently leads three-time champion Phil Scott of Montpelier by 29 points, 598-569. Cris Michaud, also a three-time champion, sits third at 563.
