Blake Rides Late Break to Late Model Win on Aubuchon Night

Barre local Cody Blake got the jump on a restart with six laps to go and drove to his second career Thunder Road Late Model victory in the Aubuchon Hardware Trophy Dash on Thursday, July 2.

Blake was running third on lap 44 of the 50-lap event when John Donahue, while challenging polesitter Boomer Morris for the lead, lost control and slammed the turn 4 wall. Donahue then flipped on his roof to bring out a lengthy red flag.

After a subsequent caution on the first restart attempt for Mike Bailey's spin, Blake got the break over fellow Barre racer Morris on the second attempt and cruised to his first victory since 2013.
