Clark takes second career victory at Thunder Road

BARRE, Vt. — Brooks Clark stole the show at Thunder Road in Barre, Vt., Sunday, holding off 7-time American-Canadian Tour champion Jean-Paul Cyr to claim the Late Model victory.

Lance Allen was the early-race leader, battling 50-year veteran Joey Laquerre for the top spot before Clark powered by him in the outside lane.

Clark looked to be in control of the race until a surge from Cyr brought the battle to Clark’s back bumper for the feature win.

Allen posted his first career podium finish in the Late Model division in third, followed by 2-time “King of the Road” Dave Pembroke and Laquerre.

Thirty-one cars attempted to qualify for the 26-car field.

Tucker Williams took his familiar red and black Tiger Sportsman to victory lane, besting veterans Mike Ziter and David Finck for the fifth win of his young career.

Veteran Jason Allen and Mike Martin survived the fray to finish fourth and fifth, respectively.

The Allen Lumber Street Stocks saw Kyle Streeter pick up his second career victory, holding off Bunker Hodgdon and defending champion Nick Pilotte.

Greg Adams made a remarkable recovery to finish fourth and Alan Maynard rounded out the top-five finishers.

Modified “Twin 25s” added to Carmody event at Devil’s Bowl

WEST HAVEN, Vt. — Mother Nature has been a thorn in the side of stock car racing fans throughout the Northeast, but Vermont’s Devil’s Bowl Speedway is fighting back. After losing two of the first three regular Friday night summer programs to rain, Devil’s Bowl will start making up for lost time by adding the exciting “Twin 25” format for the Modified division of the weekly NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Friday.

The ground pounding Modifieds will run a pair of 25-lap main events during the program, joining the Mini Stock division and an historic inaugural appearance by the Granite State Pro Stock Series for the “Slate Valley 100” event.
