Montpelier's Dave Pembroke earned his second straight Mekkelsen RV Memorial Day Classic win at Barre, VT's Thunder Road International Speedbowl on Sunday, May 30.

Pembroke started the race from the 14th spot and worked his way through traffic to take the lead on lap 68. Pembroke would hold the lead for the remainder of the race.

Granitevile's John Donahue took the lead early in the event after starting on the outside pole. He led the majority of the first 60 laps while battling with Barre's Nick Sweet, who spun on lap 46 while battling for the lead. Joey Becker also led several laps before Pembroke got by. Donahue would hold on for second, Eric Williams came from the 25th starting spot to claim third while Joey Laquerre and Rich Lowrey rounded out the top five.

Becker would hold on for sixth followed by Tracie Bellerose, Jamie Fisher, Nick Sweet, and Brent Dragon to complete the top ten.

The 48th Annual Mekkelsen RV Memorial Day Classic was a ACT Invitational at New Hampshire Motor Speedway qualifier. Pembroke now becomes the fourth driver to receive an invite. He joins Nick Sweet, Eddie MacDonald and Patrick Laperle as qualifiers for the Saturday, September 18th event in Loudon, NH.

The Bond Auto Tiger Sportsman saw Brendan Moodie rebound from not qualifying for the opening day event at Thunder Road and claim the win. He held off Tom Therrien how took second and Ricky Roberts in third. Lance Allen and David Finck completed the top five.

The Allen Lumber Street Stocks saw Travis Hull take the win in the feature event followed by Mike MacAskill, Daniel Lathrop, Jamie Davis and David LaFleche rounding out the top five. Amanda Habel took the win in the Reserve Feature.
