M&M Beverage Enduro Returns to Thunder Road


The 31st running of the M&M Beverage Enduro 200 will be held at Barre’s Thunder Road this Sunday, August 2. The “People’s Race” will feature 200 laps of motorized mayhem in boneyard-stock cars with no yellow flags and only occasional red flags. More than 50 drivers have already signed up for the $3,000-to-win event with many more expected on Sunday.

Barre’s Chris LaForest will do double-duty on Sunday, competing in both the M&M Beverage Enduro and the Brian Perry & Son Construction Allen Lumber Street Stock 50-lap Special. LaForest finished second in the 2014 Enduro and looks to do one spot better this year while also maintaining his lead in the Street Stock Rookie of the Year standings.

Two-time defending “King of the Road” Derrick O’Donnell took a big step in his chase for a three-peat by winning the Times Argus Mid-Season Championship on Thursday, July 23.
