Thunder Road>Barre, VT – Veteran Enduro racer Don “Dipstick” Tofani, of Plainfield, has filed the first entry to the 28th Annual M&M Beverage Enduro 200 on Sunday, August 5 at Barre’s Thunder Road. Tofani will pilot the Green Mountain Paving/Richard Bell Surveyor 1996 Oldsmobile Cutlass in the 200 lap, $3,000 to win, event.

Over 100 nearly street-legal cars driven by amateurs will participate in the popular annual event. Known as “The People’s Race,” the Enduro is a 200-lap race for anyone over the age of 16 that runs non-stop with no cautions, only stopping the race for emergencies. Cars will line up on the front straightaway three wide and be sent off by a crowd countdown for an all out brawl with a $3,000 payday. Tofani, who won the Enduro in 1987, is attempting to join Milton’s Doug Turner as the only drivers to have more than one win in the event. He finished second in last year’s event.

Joining him will be the likes of Barre’s Chad Perkins, Chris Laforest, Justin and Randy Johnson, Justin Blakely, Montpelier’s Mike Dubois, and over 40 others who have already sent in entry forms for the 200-lap race that will be held on Sunday, August 5th.

Rules and entry forms can be found at Thunder Road at every Thursday event. They can also be found on Thunder Road’s website ( or by calling the office at (802) 244-6963.
