The Late Model stock car championship season opens on Sunday, May 11 at Barre’s Thunder Road with the 50-lap Harvest Equipment Mother’s Day Special. “King of the Road” Track Champion Dave Pembroke of Middlesex will begin his title defense against the likes of Cris Michaud, Phil Scott, Joe Becker, Jamie Fisher, and 2007 Rookie of the Year Chip Grenier.
Pembroke, a network administrator for Vermont State Employees Credit Union, a sponsor on his #44VT Chevrolet Impala, finished third in last weekend’s American-Canadian Tour Merchants Bank 150 at Thunder Road after an exciting duel with eventual winner Scott Payea.
“I’m pretty excited to get back on the track, especially after last weekend,” said Pembroke. “We had a new car built by Dale Shaw over the winter, and it was just about perfect the first time out of the box.”
