Barre, VT — We all sat in awe as Barre’s own Nick Sweet took down a blistering 12.107-second time during Booth Bros/HP Hood Time Trials as part of the 59th annual Vermont Milk Bowl presented by Northfield Savings Bank. Now, in 2022, fans both trackside and around the world on FloRacing will be given a new definition of speed on the iconic Thunder Road high-banks.
Officials are excited to announce that the newly founded NE Big-Block Super Modified Series (NEBSMS) will make their Thunder Road debut for two special events in 2022.
In an effort to save a nearly extinct format of racing, Pro All Stars Series (PASS) president Tom Mayberry stepped up and offered Northeast drivers and owners a closer-to-home alternative to the far reaching International Super Modified Association (ISMA) schedule on non-conflicting dates. These custom-built chassis are designed to hold together under amazing stress with the big-block engine sitting beside the driver, who is also surrounded by four open wheels and covered by a giant wing that aids in slowing these rockets through the corners.
The Big-Block Super Modifieds will make their Thunder Road debut as part of the annual Friday Night weekly series opener on June 10th. Joining the headlining first leg of the Myers Container Service Flying Tiger Triple Crown Series, NEBSMS will also share the track with the Maplewood/Irving Oil Late Models, rk Miles Street Stocks and Burnett Scrap Metal Road Warriors.
The ‘Supers’ will also headline the other annual Friday night card as part of the Lenny’s Shoe and Apparel Milk Bowl Friday. A stellar opening for the 60th Vermont Milk Bowl presented by Northfield Savings Bank weekend also features the PASS Super Late Model 150, PASS Modifieds, and North East Mini Stock Tour (NEMST).
