Dudley Claims 28th Annual M&M Beverage Enduro
Yates, Belanger Earn Street Stock Special Wins
REVISED THUNDER ROAD SS RESULTS (8/6/12)
Waitsfield’s Paul Dudley expertly drove his way to a $3,000 payday through the mayhem of the 28th Annual M&M Beverage Enduro on Sunday, August 5 at Barre’s Thunder Road. Dudley was followed by Terry Pearce, Jr. and Allen Lumber Street Stock driver Tyler McNally.
The first 160 laps of the event was dominated by Monson, MA’s Bill Davis, who at one point had a lead as large as five laps over second place. A heart-breaking blown tire for Davis on lap 167, however, relegated the lead to McNally. Davis returned to the track two laps down, only to see his day end on the front stretch just one lap later. McNally and Dudley then battled it out on the track for the win, surviving two rolled-over cars and three more engulfed in flame, with Dudley passing McNally late in the event after a spin. McNally attempted to spin Dudley on the final lap, but Dudley had already lapped him and went on to win his first Enduro.
