Fisher Makes First Win Count, Taking Myers Tiger Triple Crown Series Victory At Thunder Road

Barre, VT — The third event in seven days at Thunder Road brought with it the second round of the Myers Container Service Flying Tiger Triple Crown Series and serious point battles on the track for the three top divisions. Yet another first-time winner was crowned at ‘The Road’ in just a four-day stretch as three drivers returned triumphant to the winners circle.

With the Lenny’s Shoe & Apparel Flying Tigers taking center stage for round two of the Myers Container Service Triple Crown, there were thrills on each lap with the Number One Support Division in North America. A lap-7 caution piled up last week’s first time Tiger winner Adam Maynard, rookie runner Matt Ballard and White Mountain Motorsports Park driver Travis Patnoe as defending Triple Crown champion Mike Martin spun into the infield. Another big one hit the field on lap-19 as Eric ‘Teapot’ Johnson dropped fluid in turn four, sending a seven-car pile-up slipping and sliding into the wall.

Following the lengthy fluid clean-up, rookie contender Kaiden Fisher got the jump and flew around the high banks with the top Flying Tiger competitors in hot pursuit. Fisher had it in the bag until the caution came out with three-to-go as fellow rookie Jacob Roy went for the spin cycle on the front stretch. Once again, the young Fisher got the jump and was the first one under the checkered flags for his first ever Flying Tiger win. Kevin Streeter and Michael MacAskill survived multiple-melees to round out the podium.

It was all Berlin’s Keegan Lamson in the Maplewood/Irving Oil Late Models getting the jump from the outside pole and never looking back as he led the Flag-to-Flag feature. Behind him, Brandon Lanphear, Kyle Pembroke, Marcel Gravel and Christopher Pelkey bobbed and weaved all around each other as they jousted in the top-5 for 50 non-stop laps. Lamson took the checkered flags but was relegated to last place in post-race technical inspection for a wheelbase infraction. Montpelier’s Kyle Pembroke took the win followed by Morrisville’s Brandon Lanphear and Graniteville’s Christopher Pelkey inherited third.

After their Flag-to-Flag 25-lapper on Independence Day weekend, the rk Miles Street Stocks started off a little rough, with Swanson’s Todd Raymo calling for the first caution without a lap on the board after he lost an axle. It was smooth sailing for seven laps until sophomore driver Taylor Hoar tried to fill a gap but William ‘Wiener’ Hennequin stood his ground sending the red #48 into the infield. From then on it was smooth sailing for Williamstown’s Josh Lovely. Lovely claimed his first win since he took the Street Stock Mini Milk Bowl last October. Northfield’s James Dopp dug deep to get within a car length but just couldn’t seal the deal followed by Graniteville’s Paige Whittemore in her first rk Miles Street Stock podium.

The Burnett Scrap Metals Road Warriors returned to ‘The Road’ for the third time in seven days as well. While an early pile-up got the best of Nick Copping’s back bumper and Josh Vilibrin’s front bumper, the 20-lap feature continued in short order. Neal Foster again gained hold of the strong line up front and seemingly never lifted on his way to victory. Taylor Sayers tried everything he could but the spoiler just couldn’t help him to victory. As Sayers settled into second, ‘Flyin’ Fred Fleury stole third.

Thunder Road returns Thursday, July 14th with the 43rd Vermont Lottery Governor’s Cup for the Maplewood/Irving Oil Late Models with NASCAR Cup Series invader Brad Keselowski. The NASCAR Champion and Team Owner will take on the best Late Model drivers in Vermont including three-time Thunder Road champion Jason Corliss, two-time champion Scott Dragon and a host of others looking to join the Vermont Governor’s Cup wins list of New England icons. The Lenny’s Shoe & Apparel Flying Tigers and rk Miles Street Stocks will also be on hand to continue their championship seasons. Special Post Time is set for 6:30pm with full race day schedule and pricing information to be released in the coming days.
