THE PRIMARY PAGE FOR THUNDER ROAD INTERNATIONAL SPEEDBOWL
Barre, Vermont

           I am doing this page over [a huge task] for the many loyal people who love the track and its history from 1960 through 1987. The track ownership inform me that they don't see what this work has to do with Thunder Road. Go figure. 

           I take the track history up to around 1987. Due to the sheer size of the project, it can't go all on one page. Each page of the Thunder Road topic an be accessed below. This opening page is not on that directory. Considering all the shortcomings with the old Catamount pages, this will become the most comprehensive attempt at the history of Ken Squier's 50+ year efforts  in Vermont racing that I have attempted. There are a lot fewer late model photos at T Road than Catamount, so many of those shots will be from Catamount. But - except for the period 1960 to 1964 - it's all the same history.

           When young Vermont native Ken Squier served as announcer to a new race track in 1959, it would leave a tremendous impression on him. Northeastern Speedway, located in Lower Waterford, VT, had been created by various committees oi founders in a very systematic way. Squier was so taken with how the United Racing Club had improved the rough and often dangerous sport that
he eventually started his own track - not too far away in Barre.

Northeastern Speedway , it its heyday.

        Squier would call this state of the art new facility Thunder Road International Speedbowl. At first, T Road cooperated with Northeastern, even using the United Racing Club as the sanctioning body; but, the more flashy and attractive track would eventually kill the smaller Northeastern.  The Barre oval was running the same kind of race car as was Northeastern -   powered by either flat head Ford motors or six cylinder GMC powerplants.

A field of flathead and 6 cylinders roars off at Thunder Road.

        The track would operate this way, also using a late model "B Class" car until 1965, when [upon the creation of Catamount Stadium] Squier went with NASCAR. The flatheads were grandfathered for one season, but would be contending with the far more powerful overhead V-8 engines of NASCAR invaders from New York and Quebec. The flatheads would go, but the B Class would go
on to be called Flying Tigers and prosper.

B class cars race at T Road. Bothe Jerry Bigelow [2] and car 17 were Northeastern Speedway regulars.

        Thunder Road would forge along while Catamount, after a slow start, would become a focal point for some of the top modified and sportsman drivers in the northeast. When Squier made the decision to send the modifieds away in 1968 and begin to emphasize late models, Thunder Road would come more back into prominence again. The circuit would grow tremendously until Catamount closed in 1987, and Thunder Road would go back to carrying the banner alone.

Dozens of people scramble after one of the flat head coupes tumbles against the wall. Notable are the uniformed nurse
the track used to have, Archie Blackadar, Lee "Cookie" Delphia, and the poor driver. Almost all of the guys at those races
smoked; so, they'd return to their positions after a good run and try not to die, gasping for breath.
