Brett Gervais Earns First Late Model Win on Harvest Night

Second generation driver Brett Gervais of Island Pond earned his first career Thunder Road Late Model win during Harvest Equipment night on Sunday, June 22. Thunder Road has not seen a repeat winner yet this season as there have been fifteen different winners across all three divisions so far in 2014.

Gervais followed Trampas Demers up to the front after starting in the fifth position in the 50 lap Late Model event. Demers got to the point on lap 12 with Gervais right on his back bumper. Just seven laps later Gervais made his move to the inside and the pair banged door-to-door coming out of turn four. Gervais got the advantage and cruised to the win over the final 30 laps. Demers held off John Donahue to take second. Jason Corliss finished fourth followed by Eric Chase. Jim Morris, Joey Laquerre, Eric Badore, Derrick O’Donnell and Dave Pembroke completed the top ten.
