Tiger Sportsman 100 at Thunder Road set for Thursday

BARRE, Vt. — The stars of Thunder Road International Speedbowl in Barre, Vt., are preparing for a busy August schedule, set to begin Aug. 1 with VP Racing Fuels Night. The Tiger Sportsmen will battle in a special 100-lap event along with regular events for the Late Models and Street Stocks.

The hunt for the Tiger Sportsmen crown has reached an all-new intensity heading into Thursday’s VP Racing Fuels 100. The top-five drivers are separated by just 36 points after last week’s double-points night.

Two-time Tiger champion Shawn Fleury currently leads the way, but Eric Badore, Jason Allen, Jason Woodard and Brendan Moodie all remain within striking distance of their first career title.

The month of August has become a huge month for the 2013 championship battles due to the rescheduling of two previously rained out events.

The Barre quarter-mile will host a total of seven events from Aug. 1 through the Aug. 22, with six of them being point races for the Late Models and Tigers. The Street Stocks will run for points in all seven events as they will hold their yearly special 50-lapper on M&M Beverage Enduro night Aug. 11.

Thursday’s post time is 6:30 p.m. Admission is $10 for adults, $3 for kids ages 6 to 12 and $20 for a family ticket (two adults and two kids).
