Driver of the Day - Nick Sweet

Driver of the Day: Nick Sweet

Nick Sweet is a two-time “King of the Road” who had nearly every accolade possible heading into the 2013 season. From track championships, to wins in the Governor’s Cup, Memorial Day, Labor Day and Merchants Bank, he had nearly every big win. During the 2013 season he filled in the few holes he had left on his resume. He added another Thunder Road win to bring his career total into double-digits, finished 2nd in the standings claiming $3,000 in point fund money and secured the Vermont State Championship, all by September. But he had his most important victory yet to come. With all the wins and titles there was still one glaring omission, the Milk Bowl. This driver and his family-led team used consistency to claim the $10,000 check and a kiss from the bovine trophy queen.

Driver of Day - Jason Allen

Driver of the Day: Jason Allen

With his third career win in the Mini-Milk Bowl finale, Jason Allen narrowly grabbed 2nd place in the 2013 Bond Auto Tiger Sportsmen standings and a $1,000 point fund check. In just his fourth season, he showed once again why he should always be considered a threat for not only winning each week, but for a run to the championship as well. His consistency was apparent during his run of nine consecutive top ten efforts, including a fifth in the Mid-Season Championship. Coming up just short in 2013 is sure to only increase his hunger for the title in 2014.

Driver of the Day: Tommy Smith

Tommy “Thunder” Smith is a long time veteran of the Allen Lumber Street Stock division and one of the most recognized names at Thunder Road. He racked up two more feature wins this season to increase his lead in the all-time Street Stock wins to 27. He had the most solid season of his career with the only blemish being a mechanical failure early in the year. He managed to overcome that hiccup to earn 2nd place in the final standings. He continues to be the veteran leader of the Street Stocks both on and off the track.
