The annual Fisher/Federated Auto Parts stock car event at Barre’s Thunder Road on Thursday (July 19) will be chock full of action. In addition to championship events for the American-Canadian Tour Late Models, Tiger Sportsmen, Allen Lumber Street Stocks, and Power Shift Junkyard Warriors, a pair of special events will fill the card.
The inaugural “Media Madness” race and a preview for the 23rd Annual M&M Beverage Enduro 200 will highlight the night’s program. Even with the added attractions, Thunder Road’s traditionally low regular general admission prices will remain in effect at only $9 for adults, $3 for kids, and just $18 for a family of four – the best family entertainment value in Vermont. Post time is scheduled for 7:00pm, with preliminary events at 6:30pm.
The inaugural “Media Madness” race will feature members of the television, radio, print, and Internet news media in Junkyard Warrior racers. Included in the entrants for the race are Mike McGill of WCAX-TV Sports (CBS 3, Burlington, VT), Jamie Scavotto of WPTZ-TV Sports (NBC 5, Plattsburgh, NY), “Jumpin’ Jim” of Froggy 100.9 FM, Anna Grearson, sports writer for the Barre-Montpelier (VT) Times Argus, and Mike Twist of short track racing news website Speed51.com.
