Badore Claims Triple Crown on Casella Night


 Eric Badore of Milton held off a pair of challengers early, then pulled away late to claim his second care Late Model victory on Casella Waste Systems Night at Thunder Road. Badore also won his heat race and the semi-feature to earn the second Maplewood Triple Crown of his Late Model career.


Badore and pole-sitter Jason Allen of Barre waged a side-by-side battle at the front of the pack for the first 10 laps of the race. Eric Chase of Milton took over second after Allen spun out on lap 32 to bring out the second caution of the evening on lap 32. Chase led by a nose on the outside on the restart following the caution flag, but Badore regained the top spot and stayed in front for the rest of the way.


Harvest Equipment Event Rescheduled

 After rains forced postponement of Harvest Equipment Night last Sunday, that event is now slated for Sunday, June 26, with a 5:30 p.m. twilight post time.  “The race day weather this year has been challenging, to say the least, but we are looking forward to this special twilight event,” said Darla Hartt, General Manager at Thunder Road.
