Donahue Passes Tough Test On CCV Night
Barre, VT – John Donahue of Graniteville held off a furious charge from Scott Dragon of Milton and claimed a photo-finish victory in the 50-lap Thunder Road Late Models feature on Community College of Vermont Night.
Donahue took the lead from pole-sitter Jason Allen of Barre on lap 27. Dragon, who was 13th on the starting grid, moved into second place on lap 42. With Donahue running the high side and Dragon the low line, the two leaders entered the final lap side-by-side. Donahue bobbled slightly coming out of turn 4, but edged Dragon at the finish line by 1/100th of a second.
