Polewarczyk on Pole for 54th Vermont Milk Bowl

 

Former Milk Bowl winner Joey Polewarczyk, Jr. of Hudson, NH gave himself a head start on a second crown by earning the Booth Bros./H.P. Hood Pole Award at Barre’s Thunder Road on Saturday, October 1 for Sunday’s 54th Vermont Milk Bowl presented by Northfield Savings Bank.

 

The 2014 ACT Late Model Tour champion circled the ¼-mile high banks in 13.169 seconds during time trials, earning himself a $1,000 bonus from Booth Bros. and H.P. Hood in the process. Hinesburg, VT’s Bobby Therrien will start on his outside after turning a fast lap of 13.224 seconds.

Two-time and defending Vermont Milk Bowl winner Nick Sweet of Barre, VT will start third after winning the first of two 50-lap qualifying races. Sweet came out on top of a back-and-forth battle with former Milk Bowl pole sitter Trampas Demers, taking the lead for good on the race’s final restart with three laps remaining.

 

Demers finished second with Cody Blake third. Phil Scott, Kyle Pembroke, Alex Labbe, and Matt White finished fourth through seventh, while Todd Davis nipped Dave Whitcomb at the line for the final transfer spot.

 

Jason Corliss emerged the victor in the second 50-lap qualifier, edging 2016 Thunder Road Late Model Champion Scott Dragon by just 0.015 seconds after a late restart. Jimmy Hebert took third, with Shawn Fleury, Scott Payea, Marcel J. Gravel, Mike Bailey, and Brooks Clark also transferring into the Milk Bowl.

 

Devin O’Connell, John Donahue, Luke Hinkley, Ricky Roberts, Jason Allen, Lance Allen, Whitcomb, and Chip Grenier fell back on their time trial speeds to fill starting positions 19-26. The balance of the 30-car field will be set in the last-chance “B” feature on Sunday, October 2.

 

Barre’s Dave Finck captured Segment 1 of the Bond Auto Tiger Sportsman Mini Milk Bowl. Finck started on the pole after posting the fast time in time trials and was never seriously challenged in the 30-lap event.

 

Fellow Barre driver Cameron Ouellette finished second, followed by Brendan Moodie in third. Trevor Lyman, Jason Woodard, Joe Steffen, Jaden Perry, Brian Delphia, Joey Laquerre, and 2016 Tiger Sportsman Champion Stephen Donahue completed the top-10.

 

Waitsfield’s Kevin Streeter was the winner of Segment 1 of the Allen Lumber Street Stock Mini Milk Bowl, taking the lead from Nick Pilotte following the event’s only restart on lap five and cruising to the win. Pilotte held off Brandon Gray for second. Peyton Lanphear, Cooper Bouchard, Thomas Merchant, Michael Gay, Jamie Davis, Alan Maynard, and Will Hennequin also earned top-10 finishes.

 

The 54th Vermont Milk Bowl presented by Northfield Savings Bank will be held Sunday, October 2 with a 1:00pm post time. The Bond Auto Tiger Sportsman and Allen Lumber Street Stocks will also run segment 2 of their Mini Milk Bowls. Admission is $30 for adults and free for children 12 and under.
