Thunder Road SpeedBowl

Jet Service Night Postponed

Thunder Road officials have announced Jet Service Envelope night scheduled for Thursday, August 21 has been postponed due to rain. The event has been rescheduled for Friday, August 22 with the same 6:00pm post time.

Friday night’s action will include the entire card of racing originally scheduled for tonight. The Bond Auto Tiger Sportsmen will headline the evening with Triple 50 features. The Late Models and Street Stocks will run regular events, plus the annual Run-What-U-Brung will be run during intermission.

Just three races remain in the 2014 Late Model “King of the Road” battle. Defending Champion Derrick O’Donnell used a win and a second place finish in last week’s two features to take over the top spot. Two-time “King of the Road” Nick Sweet sits just 15 points back.

O’Donnell and Morris Split Late Model Double Features

Thunder Road’s racing action got under way on Thursday night (August 14) with the remainder of the previously postponed final 47 laps of last week’s 26 car Cody Chevrolet Late Model feature. North Haverhill, NH’s Derrick O’Donnell picked up the win and unofficially took over the point lead in his quest to repeat as Thunder Road’s “King of the Road.” The final event of the night saw Jim “Boomer” Morris score his first career win in the Late Models in their regular 50-lap event after apparent winner Jason Allen was disqualified in post race technical inspection due to failing ACT’s board test, which checks for coil binding in the suspension.

In the first feature of the night, O’Donnell got around Lance Allen and cruised to the win. Lance Allen was followed across the line by Joey Laquerre, Shawn Fleury and John Donahue in the top five. Morris, Josh Demers, Brooks Clark, Nick Sweet and Brett Gervais rounded out the top ten.

Morris inherited the win in the second Late Model feature of the night, while O’Donnell claimed his second podium finish of the day in second ahead of Nick Sweet. Brooks Clark and Jason Corliss picked up top fives. Josh Demers, Shawn Fleury, Eric Badore, Scott Dragon, and Cody Blake were the remainder of the top ten.

Tiger Triple 50s

Thunder Road Announces Tiger Triple 50 Features

Thunder Road officials have announced special Bond Auto Tiger Sportsmen triple 50 lap feature events during Jet Service Envelope – Accura Printing event at Thunder Road in Barre on Thursday, August 21. The Tiger 100 lap feature scheduled for last Thursday, August 7 was postponed due to rain and was rescheduled for the August 21 event.

Instead of running the 100 lapper followed by a regular event, the Tigers will now run three 50 lap features spread out throughout the evening and earn separate feature points and separate purses for each race. The field will be inverted after each event to set up the line-up for the next race.
