John Donahue Scores Thunder Road Win on Casella Night
Graniteville’s John Donahue captured his 14th career Thunder Road Late Model win during Casella Waste Management Night on Thursday, June 19. Donahue started fifth in the 22 car field and battled late in the 50-lap event with rookie driver Eric Badore. Thunder Road has not seen a repeat winner yet this season as across its three divisions there have been 12 different feature winners.
Badore and Donahue swapped the lead several times over the late stages of the event, but the veteran got the edge over the last several laps. Donahue and Badore were followed across the line by another rookie in Josh Demers to complete the podium. Phil Scott and a third rookie in Jason Allen completed the top five. Cody Blake, Eric Chase, Nick Sweet, Dave Pembroke and Trampas Demers rounded out the top ten.
