Other notable entries include two former Thunder Road Late Model competitors in Jeff Spooner of Essex and Bob Eldred of Waterbury. Eldred claimed a top 20 in the 2013 running of the event.

A host of Thunder Road Rough Riders have filed entries including the LaForest brothers of Barre. Chris and Kevin combined have won every Rough Rider event so far in 2014. Driver's education teacher Paul Dudley and fellow Rough Rider Mike Forsey have also sent in entries for the M&M Beverage Enduro 200. Forsey won the 2011 edition.
