Northfield Savings Bank Night at Thunder Road Postponed

Thunder Road officials have announced the postponement of Northfield Savings Bank night scheduled for Thursday, July 3. The event has been postponed due to rain and rescheduled for Sunday, July 6 with a post time of 6:30pm. Sunday’s event will include a full card of racing followed by a fireworks show immediately following the night’s racing. There will also be Kid’s Race Car Rides from 4-4:40pm.

Former champions Nick Sweet of Barre and Derrick O’Donnell of North Haverhill, NH ride neck-and-neck atop the Thunder Road Late Model standings separated by just one point. It’s still early in the season and they are followed closely by a host of others including John Donahue, Jason Corliss, Cody Blake, Dave Pembroke and Phil Scott.

VT Gov Cup Presented by VP S.E.F.

Vermont Governor’s Cup Loaded with Champions

The 35th running of the Vermont Governor’s Cup 150, presented by VP-Small Engine Fuels (SEF), to be held Thursday, July 10th, at Thunder Road International Speedbowl in Barre, VT, will in all likelihood break the 6 race string of consecutive different feature winners to begin the 2014 racing campaign.

Jimmy Hebert, Williamstown, VT is the latest entry for the VT Governor’s Cup. He is currently second in points after the first six events on the American Canadian Tour (ACT) this season. “We have a pretty long time before our next ACT point’s race, (Beech Ridge Motor Speedway, August 9, 2014) and with T-Road just about five minutes from our shop, the guys thought it would be fun to go back to a track that we are pretty familiar with. We usually have pretty good luck with the 150 lap races, and having a chance to race with Clint Bowyer at my home track is pretty cool, “said Hebert.

Point Battles Heat Up

Thunder Road Point Battles Heat Up

As the heart of summer nears, the title hunts in all three stock car racing divisions at Thunder Road International Speedbowl are heating up. Just two events remain before the double-point Mid-Season Championships, beginning with the Northfield Savings Bank event this Thursday, July 3.

Two-time “King of the Road” Nick Sweet of Barre and defending “King of the Road” Derrick O’Donnell of North Haverhill, NH are door handle-to-door handle at the top of the Late Model standings. The pair is separated by just one point and surprisingly both drivers are still looking for their first wins of the season.

Right behind the former champions are John Donahue, Jason Corliss and Cody Blake who are all within striking distance of their first career titles. Two more former champions in Dave Pembroke and Phil Scott also sit less than twenty points out of the lead.
