Emily Packard's Weekend Preview

After finishing in third position the last time at Thunder Road, Emily Packard looks forward to returning there on Sunday May 25th, to see if she can continue to build on that success as she is set to compete in this weekend’s Mekkelsen RV Memorial Day Classic. "Finishing third the last time we were here really gave us a boost in confidence," said Packard, "and it was a positive sign that we are heading in the right direction. I am looking forward to the race this weekend."

Packard takes her 9x Northstar Fireworks/Packard Fuels sponsored car back to Thunder Road to compete in the Mekkelsen RV Memorial Day Classic 100 lap race, which is also the first of four races that are part of the 3rd Annual Vermont State Late Model Championship. "The Vermont State Championship races are some of the toughest races at Thunder Road," said Packard, "it’s a different track to try and tackle each time you race there."

With two races towards the VT State Championship being run at Thunder Road and two races run at Devil’s Bowl, a good finish this weekend would be a great start towards a run at the championship. "It would mean a lot to me if we could have a good run in this first Vermont State Championship Race," Packard said, "to try and get ahead, not having to fight for a position at the end."

Fresh off a 4th place finish less than a week ago, Packard and her team head back to Devil’s Bowl on Friday night, May 23rd to continue to dial the car in. "The car was very comfortable last race out, but we’ve made some changes to see if we can make it go faster," Packard said. "We had a good set-up last weekend, and if we don’t improve, then we know we can go back to the original set-up" These races help Packard and her team to prepare for the upcoming Spring Green 114 race on Father’s Day, June 15th.

Sunday’s racing starts at 1:30 with late model heats, and the Mekkelsen RV Memorial Day Classic 100 rounding out the day’s events.
