Thunder Road SpeedBowl
Driver of Day - Jason Allen

Driver of the Day: Jason Allen

With his third career win in the Mini-Milk Bowl finale, Jason Allen narrowly grabbed 2nd place in the 2013 Bond Auto Tiger Sportsmen standings and a $1,000 point fund check. In just his fourth season, he showed once again why he should always be considered a threat for not only winning each week, but for a run to the championship as well. His consistency was apparent during his run of nine consecutive top ten efforts, including a fifth in the Mid-Season Championship. Coming up just short in 2013 is sure to only increase his hunger for the title in 2014.

He racked up two more feature wins this season to increase his lead in the all-time Street Stock wins to 27. He had the most solid season of his career with the only blemish being a mechanical failure early in the year. He managed to overcome that hiccup to earn 2nd place in the final standings. He continues to be the veteran leader of the Street Stocks both on and off the track.

Driver of the Day - Cody Blake

Driver of the Day: Cody Blake

When you think of Cody Blake’s 2013 season, the first thought that comes to mind is WOW. In the matter of one summer, Blake went from a young Late Model standout looking for his first career win to a title contender with one of the biggest victories of the season. He stole the headlines from the NASCAR star and scored his first career win in the Vermont Governor’s Cup, putting his name on a trophy with the likes of Dion, Crouch, Fadden, Dragon and more. But maybe more impressive, he finished the year with 11 top tens and his second straight top five in just his fourth season in a Thunder Road Late Model. His 3rd place effort in the final standings earned him a $2,000 point fund check. Led by his former Thunder Road Champion father, Greg “Burger” Blake, this driver does Barre proud.
