Weather Forces Postponement of Merchants Bank 150
Rescheduled for Sunday May 8
The dismal forecast for Sunday May 1 has forced Thunder Road Speedbowl to postpone the Merchants Bank 150. The race has been rescheduled for Sunday May 8, post time set for 2:00pm.
More than 40 ACT Late Model teams were expected to try and qualify including defending 2015 ACT Champion Wayne Helliwell Jr. of Dover, NH, along with 2015 Merchants Bank champion Brad Babb and multi-feature winner Nick Sweet.
Almost 70 Late Models, Tiger Sportsman and Street Stocks lined Main Street in Barre, VT for the annual car show on Saturday April 30. Race Fans were able to check-out the new race cars and meet the drivers, before the parade up Quarry Hill to the “Nations Site of Excitement”. Drivers were able to get in practice on Saturday and will be ready to go on Sunday May 8, for the running of the 18th Merchants Bank 150.
