Harvest Equipment Night

Brett Wheeler Holds Off Scott for Late Model Win

Brett Wheeler of Waterbury Center met Phil Scott’s challenge on a late race restart and sped off to victory in the Harvest Equipment Night Late Model 50-lap main event on a rare Monday night of stock car racing at Thunder Road.

 Wheeler started on the pole and left everyone in the dust before a caution for Joey M Laquerre’s spin on lap 39 brought his Spherion No. 1 back to the field. Scott lined up alongside Wheeler in the Lamberton Electric/Maplewood No. 14, but wasn’t able to hang at Wheeler’s door.

 Trampas Demers and Dave Whitcomb spent the final 11 laps in a spirited battle for 3rd that went to Demers. Rookie Jason Corliss finished 5th. Point leader Derrick O’Donnell came from 20th on the grid to claim 6th. O’Donnell was 13th at the halfway mark. Positions 7-10 went to Joey Laquerre, Dave Pembroke, Mike Bailey and Eric Chase.

29th Annual M&M Beverage Enduro

29th M&M Beverage Enduro Ready to Hit the Road

Just over one week remains for competitors of the 29th Annual M&M Beverage Enduro to prepare their rides for the 200-laps of thrashing and crashing at Thunder Road in Barre, VT on Sunday, August 11. The “People’s Race”, as it has become known, gives the average fan the chance to tackle the Barre-highbanks for a shot at the $3,000 grand prize.

Long-time veteran of the M&M Beverage Enduro and the 1987 Enduro Champion Don “Dipstick” Tofani of Plainfield filed the first 2013 entry. He will wheel one of the over 100 nearly street-legal cars, which will be lined-up three-wide before taking off for the 200-laps with stops only occurring for fires and roll-overs.
