Triple The Family Fun On M&T Bank Night At Thunder Road

(Press release from Thunder Road International Speedbowl)

Thursday, June 29th brings triple the family fun to Thunder Road Speedbowl on M&T Bank Night headlined by Round #2 of the Myers Container Service Triple Crown Series for the Lenny’s Shoe & Apparel Flying Tigers! Along with all the famous Thunder Road excitement and drama on the racetrack, M&T Bank Night will also feature Kid’s Rides from 4:00pm to 4:45pm and it’s Scout Night, with all Scouts in uniform given free admission to visit ‘The Nation’s Site of Excitement!’

After taking the Round One win just three weeks ago, 2018 Myers Triple Crown Champion Joel Hodgdon looks to be the first to win multiple series championships since its inception back in 2017. The Hardwick driver is also tied with Jason Woodard for most Myers extra-distance wins at three and looks to take charge on both of those statistics starting Thursday. Kevin Streeter and defending series champion Derrick Calkins were both hot on Hodgdon’s heels in Round One, but luck of the ACT Plus/Minus Handicap draw could also play a role as track championship hot-shoes like Sam Caron, Jason Pelkey and Logan Powers look to capitalize as well.

After taking off from the outside pole one week ago, Tyler Cahoon was able to hold off a hard-charging Stephen Martin to claim his first victory of the 2023 season and the Maplewood/Irving Late Model point lead in one fell swoop! Nick Sweet and Kaiden Fisher made big gains last week as well with the defending Memorial Day Classic winner earning his first top-5 since the holiday weekend and ‘Tropical Storm’ taking his first top-5 finish of the season, using it to take the Rookie lead away from Justin Prescott. Cody Blake, defending champion Chris Pelkey and Kyle Pembroke continue to be a trio of the most consistent drivers, each having finished in the top-10 in all four point-counting events this season. 

The rk Miles Street Stocks continue to showcase the best four-cylinder racing in the Northeast with five different winners in as many events so far in the 2023 season. The top-three point men are separated by just three points with Northfield’s James Dopp taking a two-point lead over Pittsfield’s Juan ‘Paco’ Marshall with former track champions Jeffery Martin, Jamie Davis and Dean Switser Jr. having different struggles throughout the evening one week ago. While the champs are looking to bounce back, first-time winners Jesse Laquerre and Trevor Jaques are both looking to take back-to-back victories on M&T Bank Night.

Thunder Road roars back to life on Thursday, June 29th for a triple-shot of family fun with the annual Kids Rides and Scout Night festivities along with a full card of championship racing headlined by Round #2 for the Myers Container Service Flying Tiger Triple Crown! All of it presented by M&T Bank, the Maplewood/Irving Late Models, rk Miles Street Stocks and Burnett Scrap Metals Road Warriors will also be in attendance. Post Time is set for 6:00pm with Adult Admission set for $15, kids 6-12 for $5 and children 5 and under free! A Family Four Pass, two adults and two children, is also available for $30.
