Barre, VT — Thunder Road has postponed NorthCountry Federal Credit Union Night due to the weather outlook for Thursday, August 12 and Friday, August 13. The event has been rescheduled for Sunday, August 15 at 5:00pm.
Forecasters are calling for rain and possible thunderstorms in the Barre area throughout the late afternoon and early evening on Thursday, with the potential for more later in the night. There is also a heat advisory due to temperatures and humidity. The Friday forecast has a high potential for more of the same.
Because of this, Thunder Road has elected to move the event to Sunday, which is currently forecast to be sunny with highs in the upper 70s. This allows teams, fans, and officials to make their racing plans now for the weekend. The 5:00pm post time means people can enjoy a full card of twilight racing while getting home at a reasonable hour before the work week starts.
The program of events for NorthCountry Federal Credit Union Night remains the same with the Burnett Scrap Metals Road Warrior Challenge plus the Maplewood/Irving Oil Late Models, Lenny’s Shoe & Apparel Flying Tigers, and RK Miles Street Stocks. The pits will open at 1:30pm and the front gates will open at 3:15pm. A complete schedule will be posted later today on the Thunder Road website.
Advance tickets that were purchased for the original August 12 date will be honored on the August 15 make-up date. Anyone with an advance ticket who cannot attend the make-up must call the Thunder Road offices by end-of-day on Friday, August 13 to request a refund.
Admission to NCFCU Night is $15 for adults, $5 for kids ages 6-12, and $30 for a family of four (2 adults, 2 kids). Advance tickets are available at http://www.happsnow.com/event/
