Thunder Road Milk Bowl 2008

This weekend was the 45th running of the Thunder Road Milk Bowl. Brian Hoar, driving the #45 Goss Dodge Charger, invited me to put a video camera in his car for the race. Brian, a former ACT Late Model stock car champion is just returning to racing after a break since the end of the 2007 season. He won the Milk Bowl consecutively in 1998 and 1999.

This video features some highlights of the third segment of the Milk Bowl from inside Brian Hoar's car. Shots from the grandstands during segments one and two are interspersed to give you a better sense of the track for a more complete perspective.

Canadian Patrick Laperle won the Milk Bowl, Eric Williams was second, Ryan Nolin was third. Congratulations to all the racers for an exciting day at the track!

Great Perspective! How in the world are you supposed to pass on such a short & narrow track?

I am not a regular racing fan at all, but I attended with my spouse and initially I was very concerned that the time would just drag by (50 laps! OMG)... but I have to say it was really very exciting to be there and I completely enjoyed the whole experience, never looked at my watch once. Surprise, surprise! You never know. Seemed like a bunch of very dedicated drivers, crews, and fans. Fun!

The camera in the car was awesome! It looked like he had a little accident there.

I really enjoyed the fall foliage in these shots. Such a beautiful time of year in Vermont.
