Barre, VT – The four-cylinder stars of Vermont and the Northeast are getting a night in the spotlight at Thunder Road on Saturday, August 31. The track has announced a special “Four-Cylinder Saturday” as part of Labor Day Weekend that will feature the North East Mini Stock Tour (NEMST), the Allen Lumber Street Stocks, and the Burnett Scrap Metals Road Warriors for a Saturday night packed with action.
The NEMST is returning to Thunder Road for the second straight year after being part of last year’s Milk Bowl weekend. They will run a 50-lap feature as part of Four-Cylinder Saturday. The Street Stocks have an extended-distance 35-lap feature towards their 2019 championship while the Road Warriors will go 30 laps. Admission for the special Saturday event is just $10 for adults and $3 for kids ages 6-12.
“Four-cylinder divisions are the backbone of many race tracks,” Thunder Road managing partner Cris Michaud said. “Nearly all of our top racers in the Late Models and Flying Tigers got their stock car racing start in the Street Stocks or Warriors. We’re excited to give these teams a night of their own to showcase the great racing they put on.”
As part of the announcement, the Lenny’s Shoe & Apparel Flying Tigers, who were previously slated to race on Saturday night, have been moved to the Sunday portion of Labor Day Weekend. They will join the American-Canadian Tour (ACT), Bullring Bash Modifieds, and Midstate Site Development Legends on Sunday, September 1 as part of the Coca-Cola Labor Day Classic. Full schedules for both days will be released in the coming weeks.
Thunder Road continues the weekly racing season tonight, August 1 at 7:00pm with WDEV/Calkins Portable Toilets Night. The Maplewood/Irving Oil Late Models, Lenny’s Shoe & Apparel Flying Tigers, Allen Lumber Street Stocks, and Burnett Scrap Metals Road Warriors all have a full card of action. The evening will also feature the annual “Port-a-Potty Grand Prix” to determine the fastest potty in the Northeast. The pits open at 3:30pm and the front gates open at 5:15pm. Admission is $12 for adults, $3 for kids ages 6-12, and $25 for a family of four (2 adults, 2 kids).
