THUNDER ROAD ANNOUNCES 2010 SCHEDULE
PRICES WILL REMAIN THE SAME FOR 2010
For Immediate Release - ACT – 111909-53
Waterbury, VT – Thunder Road in Barre, Vermont, has announced their 2010 schedule. Officials of the popular ¼ mile high-banked speedplant, known as the “Nation’s Site of Excitement”, have also announced that prices for the 2010 season will remain the same as 2009. Adult tickets for regular events are $9.50, child tickets are just $3.00, and the popular family ticket for two adults and two kids is just $20.00.
The 51st year of stock car racing will open with the 12th Annual Merchants Bank 150 American Canadian Tour (ACT) event on the traditional first weekend in May. The ACT will appear again over Labor Day weekend with the 32nd running of the Bond Auto Labor Day Classic 200.
A change in the weekly schedule will take place with the early June dates moving from the traditional Thursday nights to Sunday twilight events. “We have decided to see if our fans and competitors feel that a couple of early season twilight Sunday events might better fit their schedules. Recently, schools seem to be in session longer, and we are hoping that fans might enjoy the early Sunday regular point events to conclude their weekends in mid-June,” said Director of Administration, Darla Hartt.
Special events will still be a big part of the 2010 schedule at Thunder Road. The mighty Modifieds will return to the high banks in a double header with the Thunder Road Late Models during the Mekkelsen Memorial Day Classic weekend. In June, the CARQUEST Vermont Governor’s Cup will lead into the traditional Pepsi fireworks show over the Fourth of July weekend. Fans will see old favorites like the M&M Beverage Enduro 200, and of course, the Times Argus Mid-Season Championships. ACT officials plan to announce a Tiger/Sportsman Tour shortly, and Thunder Road will host the opening 100 lap event in July.
Managing partner of Thunder Road, Tom Curley said, “ We had such a tremendous season celebrating our 50th anniversary this past year that we want to continue with some surprises again in 2010. I think our fans will be pleased with our tradition of bringing in a guest appearance to race with our teams, and we look forward to more spectacular championship bids in all our Thunder Road divisions.”
The season will conclude with the 48th running of the Chittenden Milk Bowl. The race has been changed from the last weekend in September to the first weekend in October for 2010.
