Barre, VT – Barre’s Thunder Road International Speedbowl has recently announced the return of the Run-What-U-Brung event on Aaron’s Sales and Lease night, Thursday, August 12.

The event features single lap elimination match races between two street-legal cars at a time. Drivers must wear a helmet, long sleeve shirt and pants while they wheel their currently registered and inspected vehicle door handle-to-door handle with their competition. Elimination events will be run until one driver is left standing and crowned the 2010 Run-What-U-Brung Champion.

The first fifty (50) entries will be accepted for the Run-What-U-Brung next Thursday, August 12 for Aaron’s Sales and Lease night. Entries will only be accepted at the track on the day of the event beginning at 4:00pm. Competitors must register at the pit gate with their vehicle by 6:00pm. All competitors must be 18 years of age or older.
