Memorial Day Classic Starts Vermont State LM Championship
The Mekkelsen RV Memorial Day Classic will open the third annual Vermont State Late Model Championship Series this Sunday, May 25th at Thunder Road. The series was started when Devil’s Bowl Speedway in Fair Haven, Vermont introduced the American Canadian Tour (ACT) Late Model division weekly to its new asphalt surface in 2012.
“Thunder Road and Devil’s Bowl officials have worked with the ACT office to create this partnership, and the racing has been spectacular at both tracks,” said Tom Curley, President of ACT and promoter at Thunder Road. “Having two very different asphalt tracks competing in Vermont with the high-banked Thunder Road and the very fast, relatively flat, half mile at Devil’s Bowl, has really allowed competitors from both tracks to have a unique racing experience in this State series. The big winners have been the fans as the point battles during the first two years have been outstanding,” concluded Curley.
