Thunder Road SpeedBowl
RULES FOR THE 22nd ANNUAL M&M BEVERAGE ENDURO NOW AVAILABLE
Do you want to be a race car driver and think you can tame the high banks of Thunder Road? If so, come join the action at the 22nd Annual M&M Beverage Enduro 200, rules are now available! The Enduro, nicknamed the “People’s Race” consists of neighbors, friends and race fans testing their racing skills at “The Nation’s Site of Excitement”. Entrants of the event must be consistent and wary of accidents as survival, not speed, is crucial to win. The 200 lap endurance race will take place on Sunday, July 30th at the quarter-mile high banked oval.
Douglas Turner of Milton, Vermont won the event in 2005 and knows what it takes to carry the checkers, as he’s picked up two victories at Thunder Road. “To win you must survive the first 100 laps, after that the field has thinned out and you can actually race.”
