Beede returned to the race after losing several laps to repair his .steering linkage. On the restart, Howe wheeled into first place with Keene and Elms fighting for second. Elms got by Keene and drove under Howe to take /the lead for the first time in the race. Third yellow flag The caution flag came out again when Keene's car seemingly stalled on the back straightaway. Chuck Beede was digging around the second turn and climed up over the wheels of Keene's rig. The car careened over the bank, breaking the repaired front steering and the drivers' "cool". The ensuing alter- cation in the pits brought a strong reprimand from the running a locked rear-end, which gives the driver better traction and ultimately an unfair advantage to him over the other competitors. Tim Claflin (18-W. Top- sham, Vt.) eventually was declared the winner, with Jim Morgan (17-W. Lebanon, N.H.) taking second place (Morgan was also declared illegal earlier in the season for the same infraction). Frank Weige] (23-White River Jct., Vt. ) came in third. Weigel and Carroll Porter (II-E. Corinth, Vt.) are now tied for the point cham- pionship in the street division with 80 points apiece. Friday Night Racing The next scheduled race is Friday, June 11 at 8 p.m. Gates open at 5:30. A P&C trophy Race will be featured, plus the annual "Street Mechanics Race", and also Go-cart racing.

Lindley of Greenville, S.C. the most popular drivers in Thunder Road history, returned to the high banks to capture the Barre Granite Association Memorial Day Classic. A capacity crowd viewed one of the more popular victories at the renewed track. "This one is worth a million dollars", said Dion, "I won a lot of races here, but none were as important to me as this one." Dion's last Thunder Road victory came in 1978, and his only other victory came as the top NASCAR North finisher in the 1980 Oxford 250. It was the first race at Thunder Road since June of 1980. The track has been the victim of legal battles for the past two years, which were resolved two months ago. Fadden places fifth Current Molson Tour leader Dick McCabe of Ken- nebunkport, Me. finished second following an early spin, with Robbie Crouch of Tampa, Fla. third. Mike Barry who won the 1980 edition of the race finished fourth, followed by co-favorite Stub Fadden of N. Haverhill.

Beede returned to the race after losing several laps to repair his .steering linkage. On the restart, Howe wheeled into first place with Keene and Elms fighting for second. Elms got by Keene and drove under Howe to take /the lead for the first time in the race. Third yellow flag The caution flag came out again when Keene's car seemingly stalled on the back straightaway. Chuck Beede was digging around the second turn and climed up over the wheels of Keene's rig. The car careened over the bank, breaking the repaired front steering and the drivers' "cool". The ensuing alter- cation in the pits brought a strong reprimand from the running a locked rear-end, which gives the driver better traction and ultimately an unfair advantage to him over the other competitors. Tim Claflin (18-W. Top- sham, Vt.) eventually was declared the winner, with Jim Morgan (17-W. Lebanon, N.H.) taking second place (Morgan was also declared illegal earlier in the season for the same infraction). Frank Weige] (23-White River Jct., Vt. ) came in third. Weigel and Carroll Porter (II-E. Corinth, Vt.) are now tied for the point cham- pionship in the street division with 80 points apiece.
