The 52nd running of the People’s United Bank Milk Bowl at Thunder Road in Barre was postponed this past weekend due to forecasted rain. The entire weekend schedule from Friday, October 3 through Sunday, October 5 was postponed and rescheduled for Friday, October 10 through Sunday, October 12.
“The Milk Bowl is a two-day show and with the weather looking like a complete washout for Saturday’s qualifying and lingering showers Sunday morning, the integrity of the biggest race of the season is jeopardized if we try to make it a one-day show,” announced Thunder Road Co-Owner and Promoter Tom Curley last Friday.
Over 40 American Canadian Tour Late Model teams are expected to be in attendance for the biggest race of the season rescheduled for next weekend. Drivers from all over the Northeast as well as the province of Quebec will battle for a spot on the Milk Bowl granite monument and a kiss from a Vermont bovine beauty queen. The Bond Auto Tiger Sportsmen and Allen Lumber Street Stocks will also be in action as they finish off their 2014 point battles.
Camping will open at 9 a.m. on Friday, October 10 and there will be a closed Late Model only practice during the day. Saturday, October 11 will see the Booth Brothers/H.P. Hood Qualifying Day. The weekend will be capped off with the $10,000-to-win 52nd Annual People’s United Bank Milk Bowl on Sunday, October 12. Front gates open at 10 a.m. on both Saturday and Sunday with adult general admission just $30 for a two-day ticket, $25 for Sunday only or $10 for Saturday only. Kids ages 12 and under are free for both days.
