5/1 - Merchant's Bank 150

        Opening Day at Thunder Road is considered as much of a holiday in Central Vermont as Christmas.  The 52nd season kicked off on a beautiful Sunday afternoon...one of the first such days of the year.  Well over 100 cars packed the pits as a full house packed the stands....EVERYONE was ready to get the fun started!

I have no idea what the estimated attendance was...but can bet that they had a great afternoon!

Things kicked off with "Class Day" as all of the cars gathered in the infield to thank the fans

with a great victory and celebrates with his crew.
