O’Donnell Puts Exclamation Point on Title Bid with Fourth Win of Season on Cody Chevrolet Night


N. Haverhill, NH’s Derrick O’Donnell put an exclamation point on his bid for a third consecutive Thunder Road championship by making a late charge for his fourth win of the season Thursday, August 27 on Cody Chevrolet Cadillac Night.


O’Donnell broke out of traffic late in the 50-lap main event and sliced through the front of the pack, passing cars low and high before reaching leader Mike “Beetle” Bailey. The two-time defending champion then swung to the outside of Bailey and grabbed the top spot with just three laps remaining.

Thursday Finale at Thunder Road on Tap with Cody Chevrolet Night


The 56th Thunder Road Thursday night season concludes this Thursday (August 27) with Derrick O’Donnell inching closer to his third “King of the Road” crown on Cody Chevrolet Cadillac Night. N. Haverhill, NH’s O’Donnell has a commanding lead with two races to go, but every spot will be critical this Thursday and in the upcoming Labor Day Classic.


O’Donnell piloted his #60VT Late Model to a second-place finish in a caution-free main event last Thursday night. The result extended his overall lead over Barre racers Nick Sweet and Cody Blake to 68 and 74 points, respectively, with an 85-point gap to Graniteville’s John Donahue. A strong run for O’Donnell and his Mascitti Bros. Racing team this Thursday on their sponsor’s night could put a stamp on a record-tying third straight track championship.
