Thunder Road SpeedBowl
Driver of the Day - Scott Payea

Driver of the Day: Scott Payea

Payea will be missed in the pit area during the 2014 season. The ACT and Thunder Road Late Model veteran is stepping away from racing to spend more time with his young family. The three-time ACT runner-up (2007-2009), has always been one of the smoothest and most respectful drivers that Thunder Road and ACT has ever seen. He was a threat to win every time he drove on to the track and 2013 was no different. He claimed 8th in the Thunder Road standings thanks to five top five efforts including two podiums.

Driver of the Day - Joe Steffen

Driver of the Day: Joe Steffen

Steffen is a Bond Auto Tiger Sportsman veteran and former champion who claimed 8th in the 2013 standings. He captured his 10th career Tiger win this season, making him one of just 9 drivers with double-digit feature wins in the division. The “old school” driver and his fun loving, down to earth team have become a staple of the Tigers during their now 22 seasons. It’s not officially a Thursday night at the Road until the bright orange 00 rolls through the gates on the open hauler.

Driver of the Day: Kevin Dodge

Dodge started off the season on fire, including his first career feature win in the opening day Merchants Bank event. In the final Thursday night event of the season, he picked up his second podium finish of the year. He overcame season long mechanical woes to earn 8th place and was one of just six drivers to earn double digit top tens.
