Sweet Celebrates On Aubuchon Hardware Holiday Fireworks Night

 

Points leader Nick Sweet of Barre grabbed the lead from rookie Marcel Gravel of Wolcott on the 46th lap and earned his second victory of the season on Aubuchon Hardware Holiday Fireworks Night.

Sweet, who won the American Canadian Tour opener at Thunder Road in May, moved into third place from the 15th starting position on the 41st lap. Hung up behind a battle for second between Jason Allen of Barre and Phil Scott of Middlesex, Sweet was finally able to take over second on lap 45, then motored past a fading Gravel to grab the win in the Thunder Road Late Models 50-lap feature.

Pembroke Takes Three On Harvest Equipment Night

Pembroke Takes Three On Harvest Equipment Night

 

Barre, VT – Kyle Pembroke of Montpelier claimed the third Triple Crown of the season in three regular-season events on Harvest Equipment Night on Sunday afternoon, sweeping his heat race, the semi feature, and the 50-lap Thunder Road Late Models feature.
 

Pembroke survived a collision with Eric Chase of Milton on his way to the victory. The two cars collided on the backstretch after the third caution flag of the race was thrown on lap 40. Since the wreck didn’t cause the yellow flag, Pembroke was allowed to reclaim his second-place position in the field. He moved past Darrell Morin of Westford on the ensuing restart and stayed in front for the rest of the event.
