Thunder Road Postpones Enduro to August 23

Thunder Road officials have postponed the 36th Bolduc Metal Recycling Enduro 200 and Street Stock Special to Sunday, August 23 at 6:00pm. The decision was made to avoid a conflict with the NASCAR Cup Series event at Loudon’s New Hampshire Motor Speedway, which was recently moved to August 2 as part of a schedule shuffle due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

The 200-lap, $3,000-to-win “People’s Race” will remain largely unchanged apart from the new date, from the three-wide start to the no-yellow-flags format. The track’s Allen Lumber Street Stocks will once again join the card with a 50-lap main event in their biggest show of the year. The rules and entry forms for the Enduro are now available at www.thunderroadvt.com/rules 

Limited fan attendance is permitted with advance ticket sales only at www.happsnow.com/event/Thunder-Road-Speedbowl. Admission is $15 for adults and $3 for kids ages 6-12. For those who can’t make it to the track, a $15 pay-per-view broadcast will also be available on the Northeast Sports Network at www.NSNsports.net/sponsors/racing.

ACT Announces Tentative Schedule for Rest of 2020 Season

 

The American-Canadian Tour (ACT) has announced a tentative schedule for the remainder of its 2020 racing season. The ACT Late Model Tour is planning up to 10 total events including last weekend’s opener. However, the schedule remains subject to change based on further developments related to the worldwide COVID-19 outbreak.

The next event on the provisional schedule is a trip to Maine’s Oxford Plains Speedway on Sunday, June 28 for a 150-lap event. Confirmation of whether this event will happen is expected by next Monday. The visit to Star Speedway that was slated for June 27 has been cancelled. Next, ACT will head to Groveton, NH’s Riverside Speedway on Saturday, July 11 for the Gardiner and June Leavitt Memorial 150. It will be ACT’s first visit to Riverside since 2018.

From late July to mid-September, ACT aims to follow the 2020 schedule as originally announced during the offseason. The Tour has a trip to Massachusetts’ Seekonk Speedway on Wednesday, July 29 for the Bay State Classic. ACT then makes its second visit to N. Woodstock, NH’s White Mountain Motorsports Park on Saturday, August 8 for the Midsummer Classic. Although ACT hopes to retain the event’s 250-lap, $10,000-to-win format, this may be subject to change based on state attendance guidelines.

After a two-week break, ACT will kick off its busiest stretch of the season with races on three straight weekends. The Tour returns to Oxford Plains Speedway on Saturday, August 29 for a 150-lap event the night before the Oxford 250. Next, ACT makes another visit to Thunder Road on Sunday, September 6 for the Labor Day Classic 200. The stretch concludes with the Full Throttle 75 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway on Saturday, September 12.

ACT also plans to add a third trip to Oxford on Saturday, October 17. The event would feature the season finale for the ACT Late Model Tour along with a 75-lap open show for the ACT Flying Tigers. The non-point Vermont Milk Bowl at Thunder Road on Saturday, October 3 and Sunday, October 4 also remains on the schedule.

One event that has yet to be rescheduled is the Community Bank N.A. 150 at Thunder Road, which was originally slated for early May. Both the track and series have elected to wait on a make-up date until more is known about the season ahead.

Officials stressed repeatedly that the schedule remains tentative and that events could still be added, removed, or postponed. Regardless, they are optimistic about finally getting the 35th ACT season in the books.

“We feel good about the schedule we’ve put together, as long as everything can happen as planned,” ACT managing partner Cris Michaud said. “There’s definitely been a lot of uncertainty over the last few months. While some of that uncertainty remains, we now at least have some hope for our racers and fans. Getting on the track last weekend at White Mountain felt great, and we’re looking forward to doing so many more times before the year ends.”

Public hearings will be held August 24 and 25 by the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Board on proposed changes to the turkey hunting regulation and the regulation on reporting requirements for hunters who take big game during hunting seasons.

 

The turkey hunting regulation proposal amends the shot size restriction to allow smaller shot, deletes unnecessary definitions, defines youth and novice hunters, and establishes a novice turkey hunting season concurrent with and similar to the youth turkey hunting weekend.

 

The big game reporting regulation proposal allows the Commissioner to authorize hunters to report turkey and deer electronically, by telephone or any other method. It also allows the Commissioner to allow electronic reporting of moose and bear in an emergency.

 

The proposed regulations are on the Vermont Fish & Wildlife website at this link: https://vtfishandwildlife.com/about-us/fish-and-wildlife-board/board-rules

 

Public comments will be taken during the online hearings and over the phone but can also be provided by sending them to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by September 2.

Montpelier Alive’s Art Walk, supported by Northfield Savings Bank, will return to the Capital City on Friday, August 7, from 3 to 7pm. Art Walk provides a fun and casual way to experience art, meet local artists, and explore downtown Montpelier shops, restaurants and galleries. Participants can pick up an Art Walk guidebook and begin their walk at any of the presenting venues.

“Montpelier is bursting with art and creativity and Montpelier Alive’s Art Walk, sponsored by Northfield Savings Bank is the perfect way to enjoy it”, said Dan Groberg, Executive Director of Montpelier Alive. “While our August Art Walk will be smaller than usual, we are excited to have a mild ‘return to normalcy’ and for the opportunity to get out in our community and enjoy art together, safely.”

This month’s Art Walk will feature nine artists and venues, including two of which can be enjoyed from outdoors: adorable pet portraits by Bernadette Hood will be displayed in the office windows of Northfield Savings Bank, with cookies available through the drive-thru during business hours; and the windows of 45 State Street (at the corner of State and Elm Streets) will feature large portraits of locals taken by photographer John Snell.

Montpelier Art Walk is presented by Montpelier Alive and organized by a committee of volunteers who plan these events six times a year. Local artists and venues are always welcome to participate. For more information, visit montpelieralive.org/artwalk.
