A Fan’s Perspective:
50th Milk Bowl: More Than a Race
The 50th Milk Bowl at Thunder Road in Barre, VT on Saturday and Sunday, September 29-30 will be the biggest stock car race and certainly one of the biggest sporting events ever in the state of Vermont. But it will be more than a stock car race; it will be a celebration.
The 50th Milk Bowl will be a celebration of the traditions and history that have not only built the Milk Bowl into one of the biggest and toughest stock car racing events in the nation, but also Thunder Road into the “Nation’s Site of Excitement.”
The previous 49 Milk Bowl Champions will be the main focus as the weekend builds with Champion’s dinners, bonfires, fireworks, tent dances, bands and more. Thunder Road legends Harold “Hardluck” Hanaford, Johnny Gammell, Bobby and Beaver Dragon, Dave Dion, Jean-Paul Cabana, Robbie Crouch and more will be honored for their Milk Bowl wins.
