Therrien Stands Tall in Dominating Memorial Day Classic Win

Therrien Stands Tall in Dominating Memorial Day Classic Win

 

Hinesburg’s Bobby Therrien took the lead early and never looked back en route to capturing the 55th Memorial Day Classic presented by Mekkelsen RV Sales & Rental at Barre’s Thunder Road on Sunday, May 28. It was the first Thunder Road Late Model victory for the multi-time American-Canadian Tour (ACT) winner.

 

After previously winning his heat, Therrien sliced through the field from the 10th starting position, grabbing the top spot from pole sitter Brooks Clark on a lap-16 restart. The former Flying Tiger champion held off a host of challengers during a series of yellows, then walked away from the field during an extended green flag run following a competition caution on lap 60.

With a new coat of pavement on Barre’s Thunder Road, speed was the name of the game at today’s Mekkelsen RV Memorial Day Classic practice day. Drivers from Connecticut to Quebec flocked to the high banks to get dialed in for the season opener, and at the end of the day, it was Hudson, N.H.’s Derek Griffith and Hinesburg’s Bobby Therrien topping the charts for the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) Super Late Models and Thunder Road Late Models.

 

Griffith laid down a fast lap of 11.446 seconds in the third PASS practice session, while Therrian clocked a 12.210-second lap in the third Late Model session. While practice times are considered unofficial, both marks would have shattered the official track Super Late Model and ACT-type Late Model records of 12.245 and 12.935 seconds, respectively.
