After Sunday’s twilight event at Barre’s Thunder Road, the championship point standings are as tight as ever across all divisions heading into Harvest Equipment night at Thunder Road this Sunday, June 16.

Brooks Clark Takes Second Career Victory

Brooks Clark Takes Second Career Victory

Williams, Streeter Take Feature Wins

Fayston, VT’s Brooks Clark stole the show on the WLVB twilight event at Barre’s Thunder Road on Sunday, June 9, holding off 7-time American Canadian Tour Champion Jean-Paul Cyr to claim the early-season Late Model victory. 

Barre’s own Lance Allen led the early going of the 50-lap feature, battling 50-year racing veteran Joey Laquerre for the top spot.  Allen took the lead for a handful of circuits before Clark powered by him in the outside lane.  Clark looked to be in complete control of the race until a surge from 2009 King of the Road Cyr brought the battle to Clark’s back bumper for the feature win.  Clark held on to the high lane where both cars preferred to be, and held off a late attack from Cyr to hang on to the win.  Allen posted his first career podium finish in the Late Model division in third, followed by 2-time King of the Road Dave Pembroke, and Laquerre.  31 cars attempted to qualify for the 26 car starting grid.
