Corliss Holds on for Third Win of Season on Jet Service/Accura Night


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                                                                                         TR082417-50

Barre, Vt. – Hometown driver Jason Corliss scored his third Thunder Road Late Model win of the season in dramatic fashion at Jet Service Envelope/Accura Printing Night on Thursday, August 24. The number-thee point driver fended off fellow Barre competitor Cody Blake and South Burlington's Trampas Demers in a three-car thriller to take his seventh career Late Model victory in the Thursday night finale.


Corliss appeared to have the race in hand after getting the jump on Milton's Eric Chase following the second and final restart on lap-29 of the 50-lap event and pulling out to a big advantage. But Blake reeled him in after getting around Chase and began looking to Corliss' outside in the closing laps.


Blake then pulled a crossover move exiting turn two with three laps remaining to get inside Corliss, and the leaders racing side-by-side allowed Demers to get into the mix. Coming off the final corner, Corliss was able to use the momentum of the outside groove to hang on for the win as the trio slid across the line under a blanket.


Blake's runner-up finish was his fourth straight top-two result while Demers took third to claim his division-leading seventh podium spot of the season. Point leader Bobby Therrien of Hinesburg came in fourth to unofficially maintain his 31-point advantage over Demers after getting a better finish in the Maplewood Semi-Feature. Chase, Matt White, Christopher Pelkey, Darrell Morin, Marcel J. Gravel, and Kyle Pembroke completed the top-10.


Hinesburg's Trevor Lyman scored his fourth win of the year in the Lenny's Shoe & Apparel Flying Tigers. Lyman crossed the line a distant second to rookie Jaden Perry of Hardwick in the 40-lap feature, but inherited the win after both Jaden Perry and apparent fifth-place finisher Jamon Perry were disqualified for rear end infractions. It was Lyman's ninth career victory in the division.


Point leader Jason Woodard of Waterbury Center assumed the second spot in the final rundown after crossing the line glued to Lyman's rear bumper. Morrisville's Dwayne Lanphear took third followed by Brendan Moodie, Mike Billado, Mark Barnier, Mike Martin, Streeter, Jason Pelkey, and Burt Spooner III. Woodard unofficially extended his margin over Moodie to 22 points with two point-counting events remaining.


Williamstown's Tommy "Thunder Smith" captured his second Allen Lumber Street Stock win of the year and 31st of his career in their 25-lap feature. Smith took the lead from polesitter Scott Weston of Berlin on the opening lap and held of Fairfax's Alan Maynard on a pair of late restarts for the victory.


Maynard earned the second spot while rookie Logan Powers of Middlesex finished third. Dean Switser Jr., Kelsea Woodard, Jamie Davis, Gary Mullen, Stephen Martin, Matthew Smith, and Kevin Streeter finished fourth through 10th. Hinesburg's Cooper Bouchard unofficially saw his point lead shrink to just four markers over Davis and Maynard after being involved in a lap-18 incident for the second straight week.


Barre's Tyler Pepin was a first-time winner in the Burnett Scrap Metals Road Warrior 20-lap feature. Pepin got inside Julian Gorman for the lead on lap six and survived a hard charge from fellow hometown driver Jeffrey Martin in the final circuits. East Hardwick's Kevin Keene inherited the third spot after James Dopp was disqualified for a camber violation. Gorman, Benjamin Ashford, Frank Putney, Cole Smith, Eric Young, Ryan McCarthy, and Trevor Rossi also earned top-10 finishes.


Berlin's Justin Lawrence was the "Run-What-U-Brung" winner in the eight-cylinder division behind the wheel of a 1984 Chevrolet Corvette. Fayston's Paul Dudley took the four-and-six cylinder division title in a 1998 Toyota Corolla.


Thunder Road returns to action with the 39thLabor Day Classic 200 presented by the Coca-Cola Bottling Company on Sunday, September 3 at 1:00pm. The ACT Late Model Tour makes its second visit of the year to the Barre high banks for 200 laps of green-flag action. The Lenny's Shoe & Apparel Flying Tigers, Allen Lumber Street Stocks, and Burnett Scrap Metals Road Warriors will also be in action. Admission is $25 for adults and free for kids ages 12 and under.

Fireworks Saturday at Airborne

Fireworks Saturday at Airborne


PLATTSBURGH – The 2017 racing season is quickly coming to a close at Airborne Park Speedway. Just two point counting events remain for the Egglefield Ford DIRTcar Modifieds and Fidelis Care DIRTcar Sportsman.

                This Saturday's racing card is McBride Chevrolet & Subaru fireworks and "Salute to our Heroes" Military Night presented by John W. Sheehan & Sons Excavation. The Poirier's True Value Renegades, Busch Beer Mini-Mods and Strictly Stocks will be in action in addition to the Modifieds and Sportsman divisions. Speedway Illustrated Publisher, Karl Frederickson will be on hand, turning laps in the Jeffords Steel, Huntley Trucking, Begor's Supply, Gisioa's Wine & Spirits No. 19 backup machine out of the Jamy Begor stable.

                The North Country Honor Flight will also be on hand as they will take part in a ceremony to start the night in our post parade. Between 10 and 15 members will be a part of the ceremony and then enjoy the night of racing.

                The rescheduled fireworks presentation from the beginning of July will take place at the conclusion of the racing card. Dr. Joe Clauss and his team of pyrotechnic specialists will light the Airborne sky with an even larger show than last season, as even more money has been added to the presentation since the July cancellation.
