Theriault Enters 52nd Thunder Road Milk Bowl

 The latest entry in the People’s United Bank Milk Bowl, to be held on Sat-Sun, October 04-05, 2014 at Thunder Road in Barre, VT, is Austin Theriault from Fort Kent, Maine. Theriault began his Late Model racing career with the American Canadian Tour (ACT) in 2010 as a sixteen-year-old rookie. Just like newly crowned 2014 ACT Champion, Joey Polewarczyk, Jr, from Hudson, NH, Theriault helped set the standard for the new younger generation of ACT racers in the Northeast.

 Theriault has spent the last two years running in the Super Late Model division in the Southeast and Midwest. He took an opportunity with BKR (NASCAR star Brad Keslowski development program) in 2013, and saw tremendous success. In 2014, Theriault was contracted by JR Motorsports, headed by Dale Earnhardt Jr., to race in the second tier division of NASCAR, the Nationwide Series. He competed at Iowa Speedway, New Hampshire Motor Speedway and most recently at the Kentucky Motor Speedway. He had outstanding results with 15th, 21st and 18th place finishes respectively.


52nd People's United Bank Milk Bowl

52ND THUNDER ROAD MILK BOWL FULL OF CEREMONY

The People’s United Bank Milk Bowl is full of ceremony, tradition, and exceptional stock car racing. The fall season in Vermont is the perfect backdrop for one of America’s greatest closing short track events of the race season.

When asked what makes the Milk Bowl so special, Tom Curley, long-time promoter at Thunder Road said, “First, the purse is over ten thousand dollars ($10,000.00) to win. Also, for most teams it is the last race of the season. For many, just getting qualified and racing in a Milk Bowl is the goal. It has been billed as ‘the toughest short track race in America’ and for race fans, that has been proven year in and year out.”

The Milk Bowl is run in three 50-lap segments, with 30 of the best Late Model teams in the region. Using one point for each position, in each segment, and then combining the scores for a winner with the lowest point total over the three segments, has been the tradition for 51 years.
