The Allen Lumber Company will once again be the division sponsor for the four-cylinder Street Stocks at Barre’s Thunder Road in 2014. It will be their 27th season sponsoring the entry level division. The family owned and operated company joined the Thunder Road family back in 1988. “By far the best bang for our bucks is spent year in and year out with our affiliation with Thunder Road. Allen Lumber Company is proud to have sponsored the Street Stock division for 27 seasons,” said Burnie Allen, Treasurer of the lumber and building materials company. The Street Stock division was formed in 1987 as an entry level division to the then headlining Flying Tigers. While the division has changed over the years, it continues to be a cheaper way for drivers to learn the ropes of the “Nation’s Site of Excitement” before moving up the ranks. The “Crunch Bunch” as they’ve been affectionately known, have produced several “King of the Road” Champions, including Nick Sweet, Jamie Fisher, and Cris Michaud. “Allen Lumber has become a household name in Vermont over the years. They were a perfect fit for Thunder Road’s common-man division 27 seasons ago, and they continue to be today,” said Thunder Road Marketing Director Marvin Galarneau. The Allen Lumber Street Stocks will kick off their 2014 season on opening day, Sunday, April 27 during the Merchants Bank 150 weekend.
