Labor Day Classic Program Postponed After Accident

Barre, VT – The 41st Labor Day Classic at Barre’s Thunder Road has been postponed due to an on-track accident that occurred during qualifying. An announcement regarding the completion of the program will be made later this week.

Near the conclusion of a qualifying race on Sunday, a race car flew over a retaining wall and struck two track officials. The officials were transported from the track for further treatment and evaluation. Both officials were awake and alert at the time of their departure. No other information is currently available.

Out of respect to those involved, drivers from all divisions voted to postpone the completion of the event. Information regarding rain checks will be announced at the same time as the make-up date.
