Apparently, the Seacoast Late Model Challenge 100 has so huge even Mother Nature couldn’t handle it. As you probably know by now, the opening event of the ACT Late Model Tour was rained out last weekend, but Lee USA Speedway officials have rescheduled the race to Friday, May 6. Gates will open at 1:00pm, practice starts at 3:00pm, and the qualifying action gets under way at 6:00pm. We expected as many as 65 cars, so it's a show you won't want to miss!
With the rain, that means the 2005 season opener will now take place at Barre, VT’s Thunder Road this weekend, with the Merchants Bank 150.
The Merchants Bank Car Show returns to Main Street in Barre City on Saturday, April 30, where cars from the Tour and each of Thunder Road’s four racing divisions will line the streets of the Granite Capital. Show hours are 9:00am to Noon, with an all-divisions – and likely all-methods necessary for some teams – Pit Stop Contest at 10:30am. The show will close with a full parade of race cars up Quarry Hill to the speedway, with practice sessions beginning at 1:30pm. Thunder Road’s famous “Class Day” ceremonies will kick the season off in style on Sunday, May 1 at 1:00pm, with the first green flag waving at 1:30pm.
