Shawn Fleury of Middlesex battled by John Donahue on the final restart with three laps to go in the 50 lap Thunder Road Late Model feature during the Jet Service event on Sunday, August 24. Following the second and final caution of the event on lap 47, Fleury started to the outside of Donahue and the duo swapped paint all the way around the highbanked quarter-mile during a wild finish over the final three laps. On the final lap, Fleury got the advantage in the high lane and claimed his second win of the season.

Donahue settled for second ahead of current point leader Derrick O’Donnell completing the podium. Jason Corliss and Trampas Demers earned top five finishes. Nick Sweet, Joey Laquerre, rookie Eric Badore, Brooks Clark and rookie Josh Demers completed the top ten.

The Bond Auto Tiger Sportsmen ran triple 50 features as their part of the day’s racing card. Mike Billado of Essex made it two-in-a-row when he claimed the win in the first 50 lap feature ahead of Dylan Payea and Brendan Moodie. Worcester’s Jeff Bousquet earned his second feature win of the season in the second event ahead of Eric Johnson and Moodie. Craftsbury’s Mike Martin claimed his first win of the season in the third and final feature. He held off Moodie, who completed the hat trick for podium finishes and current point leader Jason Woodard finished third.

Kyle Streeter of Waitsfield earned his third straight podium finish as he pocketed his first Allen Lumber Street Stock feature win of the season ahead of Marcel Gravel and Jeremy Colson. Jaden Perry and Bunker Hodgdon scored top fives. Tommy Smith, Tyler Austin, Jamon Perry, Donny Yates and Alan Maynard completed the top ten.

The annual Run-What-U-Brung saw Wolcott’s Richard Gravel win the four cylinder portion, while Shelburne’s Brittaney Fisher won the six and eight cylinder portion.

Thunder Road concludes its 2014 Thursday night schedule this Thursday, August 28 with Aubuchon Hardware night. The Late Models, Bond Auto Tiger Sportsmen, Allen Lumber Street Stocks and Rough Riders will all be in action with post time at 6:30pm.

Just three days later all four divisions will be back for the 36th annual Coca-Cola Labor Day Classic on Sunday, August 31. The event will be the final point counting race for the Late Models and the 2014 “King of the Road” will be crowned.
