Corliss Making His Mark in Thunder Road Late Models
Before his 2013 rookie season in the Thunder Road Late Models, Barre’s Jason Corliss hoped that his team would be a championship contender in five years’ time. Corliss is now entering his third year in the top division, and already finds himself high on the list of title threats.
Corliss enters the upcoming season after a 2014 campaign in which he captured the first two wins of his American-Canadian Tour (ACT) Late Model championship career. He finished fourth in the point standings. His defining moment came at the Mekkelsen RV Memorial Day Classic. Corliss muscled underneath two-time “King of the Road” Nick Sweet on the final circuit of the 100-lap event, beating him to the checkered flag by a bumper for his first win. The victory sent a message: he and his Chris Burnett–owned team have arrived.
