The season will open on Saturday and Sunday, May 2 and 3 with the ACT Late Model Tour and the traditional opening weekend festivities.

Super Late Models will make their return to the high-banked quarter-mile on Sunday, May 24 in conjunction with the historic Mekkelsen RV Memorial Day Classic 100. Thunder Road’s Late Model championship season will begin in the 100-lap event while the Pro All Stars Series Super Late Models will run in a 150-lap event.

The Thursday night season will kick off for 12 consecutive weeks on June 11. Two special events highlight the Thursday night season, first on July 9 with the VP Fuels Vermont Governor’s Cup.
