Thunder Road SpeedBowl
LOWREY CLAIMS MID-SEASON CHAMPIONSHIPS - MICHAUD TAKES POINT LEAD
Charlotte's Rich Lowrey came from the rear of the 23-car starting field in Thursday's Late Model Times Argus Mid-Season Championship race to win his second consecutive feature at Barre's Thunder Road. As the previous event's winner, the veteran Chevrolet competitor was relegated to the final starting position on the grid. Although Lowrey professed in Victory Lane that his car was tight (it didn't want to turn), he was able to pass cars by running the high groove around the high-banked quarter-mile oval.

LOWREY WINS THUNDER ROAD'S KINNEY DRUGS DASH
Rich Lowrey overcame early season adversity Thursday night at Barre's Thunder Road and won the Kinney Drugs Late Model feature over a hard charging John Donahue. The Charlotte, VT racer took the lead from Donahue just before the mid-point of the 50-lap race and survived a pair of late race restarts en route to his first win of the season and third of his career. Graniteville, Vermont's Donahue had led from the drop of the green from his pole starting spot. The victory, his first in two years, was redemption for Lowrey and his crew following a disqualification nearly three weeks earlier due to an illegal part.
