THOMPSON, CT – History was made as stock cars took to the road course competitively for the first time at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park, as part of the Stock Car Road Race Challenge, presented by SHE Racing.
Roger Turbush set the quickest lap in qualifying in any division, as the Mr. Rooter New England Truck Series driver became the record setter in a stock car on a road course for an Outside the Box Promotions event, posting a lap of 1:23.655. Upon learning of his feat, the Riverhead, NY driver said “It’s unbelievable. It gives you a good feeling that you hold the record right now. I’ve got chills coming to me right now.”
