Barre, VT – Shelburne’s “Hurricane” Jamie Fisher captured his 15th career Late Model win at Thunder Road and his first during the 50th Anniversary Season. Fisher took the lead from Tony Andrews with just under 10 laps remaining and held on through two late restarts to secure the win. Andrews would hold on for second followed by Joey Becker, Doug Murphy and Dave Pembroke.

Second place point man Phil Scott finished sixth but didn’t gain much on point leader Jean-Paul Cyr who finished seventh. Unofficially the distance between the top two in the point standings did not change headed into the final Late Model points counting race and the final Thursday night event, next Thursday, August 27. Cris Michaud, John Donahue and Matt White rounded out the top ten.

Joel Hodgdon of Craftsbury nosed out Eric Badore at the line for the win in the NAPA Tiger Sportsmen feature. Hodgdon and Badore raced door handle to door handle during a green-white-checkered finish with Hodgdon coming home with his second career Tiger feature win. Ray Stearns would follow them to the line to finish third, Derrick O’Donnell fourth, and David Finck rounded out the top ten. Jimmy Hebert, Tony Rossi, Erik Steel, Jeff French, and Brendan Moodie rounded out the top ten.

Pete Ainsworth’s point lead took a hit as he finished 27th. Unofficially Tony Rossi’s seventh place finish was enough to move him ahead of Pete Ainsworth with only three point counting events remaining in the 2009 NAPA Tiger Sportsmen season.

Tim Campbell of West Topsham took the Allen Lumber Street Stocks feature win from his sixth starting position. Campbell outran second place finisher Joe Blais and third place Ron Gabaree to score his sixth career Street Stock victory. Rookies Scott Weston and Danny Doyle rounded out the top five.
Cabot’s Ken Christman was the top finishing Power Shift Junkyard Warrior followed by Lance Donald and Kevin Streeter.

Next week, Thursday, August 27 is the final Thursday Night event of the 50th Anniversary Season. NASCAR star David Ragan will be joining us in the finale celebration when he battles the Barre highbanks in the 100 lap Late Model feature. It will be the final point counting event for the Late Models and the 50th Anniversary “King of the Road” will be crowned. The evening will be capped off with the biggest display of fireworks ever at Thunder Road International Speedbowl. All of this on VSECU night next Thursday, August 27. Post time 6 pm.
